however the seller have a very bad feedback rating...

(and Iron wind... but which printing?)


I'll take that, thank you very much.   :D   Love those poorly described, mixed lots listed in the wrong category.  Poor feedback helps too!  (A 16000+ feedback seller like that is just taking pics and shoving the items in a package.  Most negative feedback stems from non-working, broken "technology" items - books are pretty much as is, but are often a great deal on the resell.  :) )

Nice pick up there. I saw that when lokiwookie (would that make him part of the Sith?) posted it but I could not recall if I had dealt with them in the past and the FB scared me a bit. You have to love it but I can't understand selling books with them all stacked on top of each other. There is not even a closeup on the stack to the left. And listing them by stock number...there are probably only a handful of people that know items by stock number for a line like Chaosium has.

An interesting story on that is that after I bought that I go both the Spell Law box sets I bought and they both had the Arms Law stuff in the box as well. I am betting that happens alot or I blew good luck on that and not the lottery  :lol:

Heh, heh... luck pays better on the lottery, I think, so if you have a transfer option on that, Marl... :)

Yup, that was the one (from one-eyed-jacques).
There is a 1st print up for sale just now at $19.99 BIN, but it is "book only" and with a few flaws at that;

** expired/removed eBay auction **
(I like the "original box is not included", when the sliced-in-two cover is shown ;))

I was all set to buy it and then I read the "orders under $20 will have a $1 handling fee"....on his $19.99 BIN item.  Just rubbed me the wrong way.

Now there's a name I recall.  I used to frequently haunt his store in Richmond, VA.  I think it used to be on Cary Street.  Picked up a lot of neat items there in the days prior to eBay!  I actually went through the owner's hoard of Dragon magazines and picked up quite a few for a great price.  I remember that he had a fire there and some of his collection was destroyed/damaged.

Not sure if any of these are valuable of not but 77 makes it fairly old and might make it a 1st printing....again not sure if that matters with T&T. It looks to perhaps be the digest sized version.

Deathtrap Equalis(z)er.....

= UK 1st print (SGL), in this case. That matters here, for a start... :)

Only $15?
Had expected perhaps a bit more regardless of condition, given the rarity and the announcement.

I think you're going to hear a Martian "Shhhhhhhhhhhhh! :)" again, Al!

(Although, tbh, I'd already spotted the SGL Buffalo Castle (as a UK-only auction! ;)) in addition to the (world-wide auction ^^) SGL Deathtrap Equaliser, above/on the previous page;
=> eBay.com Item Bid History . 4th(?) time lucky, I think, in as many years... Too darned rare by half).

I thought I was going to see you at the end of this one as well David, like with the last Deathtrap Equalizer and Labyrinth :)  I have a nice Kandroc Keep already but wouldn't mind a playing copy too so my bid isn't very serious.

My brother now lives in Edinburgh so I have been checking out the UK auctions for the past few months and forwarding them to him so he can mule them back when he visits ;)  He just brought back over 20 pounds of stuff for me today - I'm all giddy right now :)

Is the red cover Buffalo Castle more rare than other editions?
