Huge lot of D&D and Avalon Hill games, plus some other RPG stuff in there to boot. Starts at $500. I know nothing about the bookcase games, so I've got no idea if that's a reasonable price :P

It is real. I don't know anyone who's read it, though.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

I've talked to a few people who have. Apparently it's heavy on number-crunching to get optimal builds for characters and such. Pretty in-depth book, but I think it only covers the 3 core books, which leaves a ton of stuff uncovered.



Likely a waste of money, imo.

So it's 3E only. :(



Never mind. 1E will be covered quite extensively in my new books, 'A DM's Guide to Advanced Probability Theory' and 'The Player's Primer in Statistical Analysis'.

I am assuming therefore that I am not the only player who in his youth (and later too) rolled handfulls of the requisite dice in advance of any 'big' role... so as to better select those that were rolling the best that day...

:D  :lol:

Unfortunately, the last of them unless I find a more reasonable supplier. I can still get them, but I'd have to shift them at £50 a piece to make a proffit, and I doubt they'd sell at that. Best to quit while I'm ahead.

I ran across this searching for some Traveller stuff.  Don't know anything about it but it looks like a nice collectible.  May need to be fluent in German though.   :)

S&T range from #20 (s.t.b. first issue with game included?) through #92, missing only six from #20-64; mostly unpunched/VGC, some early duplicates, original mailers ("which show wear, but could be discarded" 8O ), etc.

$153 with 5 1/2 days to go

This was my stupid.   I forgot to change the shipping when I started listing the lighter-weight items.   Haste, waste, and all that goodness.   When invoices go out, I will send the correct shipping amount.   Thanks for catching this!!



Don't even get me started on the bills!!

   That's what I love about The Acaeum....I was not aware that anyone else in the world could still remember Thieves Guild.



    I bought a number of those books for 99 cents about 15 years ago, when a local game store was going under.  I liked their style...the emphasis on sneaky petes and their sneaky stuff.



    Now, does anyone else remember Midkemia Press?



  :lol:
