That would require going to a secret location in Texas in July.

What you'll find in the mailbox will be melted cheese somewhat in the faded shape of magazines.

I haven't been to Texas since I was three, but I've watched a lot of episodes of Cops.

Apparently, it's so hot in Texas that the local neighborhood association has a rule requiring every male to be drunk and shirtless as soon as they get home from work.  (I presume that the same rule applies to females, but the Cops people blurred them out...?)  8O

A nice little Wizard's Aide arrived -- nothing spectacular in it, but I do think the last few pages are kinda neat, regarding the random name generation based on sound... hehe. Glad I did not pay much for this book.

I sure do like coming home to a stack of boxes on my doorstep...almost as much fun as Christmas.  :)   I definitely have some reading time set aside for this weekend.  I'll probably dive into this first:


** expired eBay auction **


Then I'll spend some time reading through some stuff I picked up from Brave Halfling Publishing.  I ordered Obregon's Dishonor and The Ruins of Ramat a few weeks ago but my order got delayed.  When I contacted them about it they were really cool about it and sent me two extra adventure modules (including their brand new C&C module, The Secret of Ronan Skerry) as a nice gesture.  I've already read a couple of their other publications and it is pretty good stuff.

And the last thing that was delivered was this:


** expired eBay auction **


I paid way too damn much for it IMO but I have waited long enough to pick one up.  :D

Nice pickup, King!  :D

I've been looking for a really good copy of the Gamma World set for quite some time.  One day.  One day. ;)


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

What do you all think of the price I paid for this Lot.  I thought it really good but I do not follow the Goodman games pricing.

The gazetteer boxed set has been going for that much by itself lately so I'd say that was a good purchase.  The individual modules are anyones guess though (as ebay has been flooded with them lately).

I think it is a very good price for that lot.
Yes, the market had been flooded with DCC modules, but until recently, the Gazetteer would sell for close to that alone.
I had written the seller and he confirmed the set was opened but complete, listing the contents for me, so I was one of the bidders on that lot too.
Even though I have a few of them already, I would have been happy to get another set for around $50-$60 or a little more perhaps...

There was one seller that had about 8-10 of the Gazetteers and she listed them one right after the other, so that there was a 2-3 month period where there were at least a couple of them on E-Bay at all times.
And near the end of her listings they were selling really cheaply.
($53 for her last one IIRC to JohnGaunt).
She now has an incomplete set listed and has no more complete sets.

I think the prices will slowly go back up again now that she has sold all of her complete sets.
Until she started her listings, they were going for $100-120 and higher....

I recently won an E-Bay auction for Wilderlands of the Magic Realm with the four maps for a total of $22 (Free Shipping).

(IMO) I was lucky the seller listed the title quite badly; this was the title of the listing....  8)
ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS AD&D TSR VENTAGE


It is a third print and missing the color cover, but I think I got it for a very good price.

Good price for what it is, but Magic Realms was published in two parts, two books with eight maps. You're half way there with that one, and for only $22. Nice win, but look out for it's sibling.

You have Installment W. Installment V is the white/blue book and completes the set. They are the hardest of the Wilderlands sets to find in my experience, probably because they're just full of sea and islands and they didn't sell as well as the others. Who knows.
For play, the Necromancer Wilderlands Boxed Set is a very faithful reproduction of the entire set, right down the the same descriptions for the same map references. Well worth buying if you're gonna play in this setting. And I'd recomments Necromancer's CSIO also (it includes Wraith Overlord) Or pick up the PDF when it's on sale at RPGNow.
