GotPM was also published by Kenzer & Co., around the timeframe as City of Brass, IIRC.

Went to Con-on-the-Cob this last weekend and returned with the following thingies:

Nyambe: African Adventures (d20)
Behind the Rose: A Fantasy Adventure (AD&D / Sage Lore Productions)
Paranoia 1st Edition Box Set
Bestiary of Loerem (d20)
High Tech and Low Life: The Art of Shadowrun
Shadow Knight (Amber Diceless)
New Seattle (Shadowrun)
Blood Bowl Annual 2002
Blood Bowl Annual 2003
Central Casting: Dungeons
T&T Solo Adventure Set Summer Special #2 (T&T)

The T&T item is in shrink and contains 8 modules and a fantasy bumper sticker... ooooo.

Anyway, I think its cool.

Those are some nice pickups.  I was tempted to pick up a copy of Nyambe at one point but didn't (Paizo has them on sale too).

I recently picked up a few Canadian nonTSR RPGs:  Vikings & Valkyrs and Eighth Coming.  Eighth Coming seems to be a fantasy RPG in which only about a dozen copies were sold (near Calgary) and Vikings & Valkyrs is an east coast RPG from the 1980s.  I have been trying to get a copy of the unpublished volume 3 for about 2 years now but no luck there yet.  Also looking for a copy of Order of St. Talis by the same guys if anyone has one they want to part with.

Okay, this isn't RPG-related, strictly speaking.. But, I found it because I was searching for the TSR/RPGA belt buckles done by the same manufacturer, and it was just too cool (YMMV) to pass up. From what little research I was able to do between happening across the auction and bidding on it, the two-sided version is no longer being made :).

Yes, I'm going to wear it...well, maybe.

It's new(er) and it's not even remotely D&D-style roleplaying, but I've been looking for one of these for a while, and it's the limited edition hardcover (for below the cost of what the softcover was when it was still in print -- though I'm curious as to what the price for that will be once they finally get the POD stuff set up) as well. :D


** expired eBay auction **


Now to track down a copy of Rüs and its supplement plus a few d20 books.

I am very happy to get a near complete run of Inner City RPG and supplements :)
The only thing missing is the 2nd pr. Pavement Plounders

Anyone ever hear of a d20 RPG called Solid! Seems to be a play on 70's black-sploitation?


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

Used to own a copy. I had picked it up a number of years back at the GenCon auction in a batch of d20 books.  It was a fun read once through, but I can't actually imagine playing it.  One favor deserves another, so I sold it at the past GenCon auction, again in a batch of d20s.  I think I got $9 for the set.   :roll:

I ordered that Summer Special #2 directly from Flying Buffalo, and it wasn't in shrink + no bumper sticker. Wonder if I got the "limited" opened version  :D

I noticed that you bought one of these and seller has a few more so I picked up a copy of the boxed set too (have been looking for a while - NK has one for $95).  I picked up the supplements a little while back from Crazy Egor.

Nice pickup on the Endless Games Gamebook pads too - I forgot to bid :(

Yes he have several box left. It is a very hard to find boxed set so I am very astonished that no one else bid on them... You picked one too didn't you? And that no one bid on endless games gamebook pads

I'd say someone got a deal, but I am no art expert. :?
