I agree with all of the stuff there...
If you do future one-offs, perhaps donate that item to a convention for auction, or as an auction here (or even on e-Bay) with the proceeds to be donated to some worthy cause...

Only a truly despicable person would bash you for donating something like this to a worthy cause.... no matter how much it sold for.

For now, I would probably take that fortune of $125 you just got for this one-off and buy a new home.....  :roll:  :wink:  :lol:

I wouldn't class myself as despicable Gnat. Nor do I consider it a huge money grabber in the grand scheme of thing, because Thork isn't going to buy a new house on that much...

So feel free to carry on and have a little dig at anyone who doesn't have the same view as you eh....

And I thought I'd just quote you, before you re-edit again and take out the narky bits like normal....

You read things in my post that are clearly not there, which is no surprise to me.
I have never called you or anyone else here despicable and to be clear I do not think you are anything close to that.
Strongly opinionated perhaps, but then so am I... and I see nothing wrong with that either.

And no Thork wont REALLY be able to buy that new house with the $125...  :lol:

Then I apologise for reading something that you did not imply

Strong opinions are what make the Forums go round..... :)

EDIT - I would like to say though, that it's quite clear that we are all very passionate and enthusiastic about this game we love and that without all our views and discussions, the game would be long dead. I hope that sufficient numbers in the next generations keep the history and game play alive. It may well make Thorks, PGS, Burntwires, BHPs & Mythmeres products as collectible in the future as those that we hold dear now.

I just received the print/copy this morning. I have contacted the winning bidder, and will be sending it to him ASAP.
Let this now close the matter on this item.

I agree, this should be over, as it's time has passed, but it's not your call to inform those on the forum that it is, as Forums discuss anything they wish when they wish.

Well, again, my fingers don't always deliver what I wish them to say. Let "us"(all of us) now close (conclude) the matter(controversy) on(of)this matter.
But, fine by me. You all can talk about it as long as you like.

The module arrived yesterday and I just had an opportunity to open it and admire Thork's handiwork.  Great job!  I am delighted.  The notes and hand drawn map included are a nice and special bonus!  Good luck with your future adventures!

My LULU box arrived this afternoon and I am pleased with the contents.
Thanks again Thork for providing us with yet another fine gaming product at a low cost.
