He did indeed.  I didn't win many though; just these and the Avalon Hill Runequest character sheet boxes, and I probably overpaid for those ones. ;)
I thought about bidding on those Elfquest items but really couldnt bring myself to with so many really great items up on Ebay over the last couple of weeks.

I bid on a fair number, but I found that the prices on a lot of the items tended to be above what I normally see them go for.  (Or, in some cases, what similar items listed around the same time went for.)  Something to be said for listing large amounts of similar items at the same time, I suppose.

I bought a Heritage Castle Front Sheet (punch-out cardboard) on Free RPG Day.  It was $5 or $10, which is still reasonable for Heritage cardboard.  It's not very functional for gaming, since it's just the front of a castle.  Whatever.

I placed another order with Noble Knight last week to get some more Free RPG Day stuff.  I saw a Heritage Castle Front Sheet, this time listed under Gamescience.  Reasonably priced again --- cool.

I received the order today.  The single Heritage Castle Front Sheet was actually a shrinkwrapped package of twelve unfolded Castle Fronts.  A photocopied product sheet inside the shrinkwrap branded it as Gamescience.

And, yes, Smarmy, I had to open up a corner of the shrink to count how many sheets were inside.  Ah, to fully open the shrinkwrap and assemble them . . .  :)

Ugh, novels. No idea. I thought you meant the modules, of which I know three exist.

Heritage's SwordBearer.  One beat-up box, three rusty booklets, one character sheet, two "Society of the Sword" blurbs.  But cheap!

I had a feeling that there weren't too many in the Cyborg Commando series. Actually, until I saw them today I didn't know they'd produced any novels for the game.

There wasn't too much produced at all.. and the second book seems the easiest to find (from my experience, I only have the 2nd book, but I haven't looked for the rest) From memory its the first book produced in the USA that used the metric system..

Historically, it has been a very bad idea to mention anything I am trying to collect on the Acaeum.

I have 2 different prints of book 3.  New Infinities did produce a fair number of novels.

I bought two first ed. supplements for Phoenix Command. I don't know if they are rare or not, but never seen them before. Perhaps Mars?

I'm not sure about this game.  I know that my local gaming store has some of these books for cheap as well.  Maybe its time to pick them up.

Not a huge deal or anything but I recently obtained White Dwarf Archive thing so that's pretty neat. Too bad it doesn't cover the issues I really wish it did, though. :)

What issues does it include?
I have been thinking about bidding for the CD's on occasions, but have no idea if it is useful.
Does it have a similar set-up/format as the Dragon Archive CD's?
Are the pictures/scans in PDF format?

It has issues 1 - 90, all in pdf, but without a search function, so it is nowhere near as "sophisticated" or in-depth as the Dragon Archive. I've found it worthwhile, so far, as I've been able to read the earliest WD issues and even printed out a couple articles and items (like the bonus Talisman cards from issue 72.)

For me, its great because I'm only really interested in WD1-5 in print (excepting specific issues having GW game materials, of which there are a lot) and this lets me read them without ruining them.
