Nice Cthulhu Keeper's Kit (the seller also has a Cthulhu Gaslight boxset up - a recent shrinkwrapped one went for £100+)

Strange... Neither of you bought a copy from Ian under his old eBay handle... ;)

Or did you both notice the other open-auction copy went for ~£52.50? (and could have been pushed further).

Ian why did you you change your handle? I noticed that yesterday and was just curious? :?

Hi All,

Nothing suspicious or underhanded. There were two reasons. The first is my GF has been fishing to find out what I've been buying on eBay and knows my old handle 'mba<EDIT>ssoc' (from my company name). I don't want her seeing how much I pay for some of the stuff I buy 'cos I'd be in deep sh*t. Secondly, I wanted to bring my handle in line with my shop and webpage name RPG Swap Shop and rpg_auctions was the only combination that eBay would allow me to have.

So, my appologies for any misdirection, but it was not in the least bit underhanded.

Thanks for the business anyway. I need to make some dents in my extortionate credit card bills.

Ian

Sounds logical enough: I'd just presumed the second reason.

If she knows the 2003 part, too, will be able to find you on eBay or here, via Google.
If she doesn't, will still be able to pick up your post, above, once that has registered with Google.

Good luck, Ian. :?

Dithered for too long trying to decide if I really wanted one on the first two occasions :? . So, when the opportunity arose, I thought I'd buy first and ask myself questions later. And I didn't realise I was buying from Ian until he PM'd me after I posted the link :oops:. I had seen the £50+ auction so I knew it would be easy enough to resell if I don't want it. But I'm probably more likely to sell my originals 8O .

Well I just bought one too. I was kind of back and forth on it myself, but I figured hopefully this will stop me from buying more of the originals in the future. :wink: The again knowing me probably not. :oops:

Out of my range, but probably significant for others:

Tekumel stuff...probably rare.

mba<EDIT>ssoc

Doesn't look like you're taking chances with that one! :lol:
Is your GF handy with knives or something? :P

£40 was a nice price point to hit for the White Dwarf Archive, btw. (Well, other than the £39.95/99 trick).

About the White Dwarf DVD...

I can see resale not being a problem. Also, having a 'promo' disk I notice a difference between the security on the promo disk and the DVD Archive. The DVD Archive doesn't seem to have much copy protection on it. Presumably the security on the promo disk had to be licensed from someone and wasn't implemented on the DVD due to cost?

So you could copy the DVD and sell it. However, I do like to 'feel' of the finished package, so I'll be keeping mine.

About hardcopy White Dwarfs...

I'm still completeing my collection seeing as I've been building if for the past year. Most notably, I'm looking for issues 6 and 23 if anyone has spare copies. There are gaps at the top end also, but I can get those for 99p on eBay.

About wives with knives...

I am incredibly irresponsible with money. I run up debt, pay it off, run it up again, etc, etc. Understadibly she gets real pissed off at this. The only saving grace is that eBay is the great leveller. Everything you buy at auction, provided you are cautious and sensible, inevitably retains its value for resale. So I would expect to recover the money I spent on Sarland, Revenant, etc. in the event that I decided to sell them. Things in our market don't seem to depreciate that much.

About future PDF releases...

I hear words that TM Games are planning a release of Tortured Souls. Ian Taylor at SPI has also said he is planning of re-releasing the ARes Magazine Archive, and of course we'd be most grateful if Different Worlds would cast caution to the wind and republish that great publication. A lot of our favourite writers and games designers appeared in the early issues of Different Worlds, and being from the UK, we never saw much of that magazine.

Ditto.  I like looking at my lot sitting on the shelves - I see the DVD as an addition, not a replacement to the magazine collection...

...although if anyone disagrees with me and has really great condition (and I mean largely crease and blemish free) copies of 16-23, 26 and 49-60 I would be very happy to do purchase/trade.

By the way, I have my WDs up on shelves behind the binders, but not attached to them - as I was sagely advised by someone here as to what might happen if you keep copies stored in string binders.
