That had been listed off and on for months, with steadily dropping prices.  I'm glad someone finally grabbed it once it reached a reasonable range.

I hesitated to bid on it. I wasn't sure it is genuine. Now I know it is ;)

In this case, "recent" is relative, but it seemed like a good place to highlight my planned reading for the weekend - house to myself until Monday night!  Let's see how far I get...

Wow, what a nice collection... lots of goodies - and quite a few on my want list :)  If you read like me, Companions alone will take you 'til Monday...  Thanks for posting these, nice to see :)

Gems For Death
Brotherhood Of The Bolt
Starstone

Sweet, relatively rare, good quality products there. Don't imagine you got those from eBay, so private purchases? I've never read Gems For Death, but BotB and Starstone are good reads.

The rest look like really good condition uncommons. All good quality products for the most part too.

OT - Anyone know of Peter Rice or Wm John Weaver are still around? Contactable?

Nice Companions set! Very nice.

Mark: do you have a list of pre-D20 Kalamar items?

This isn't going to mean much to many of you, but I found it interesting.  I've been wanting a Demogorgon figure for a while, but the prices were always out of my interest level.  Finally, I bid on and won these three auctions, the first of which had both an Orcus(in poor shape) and a Demogorgon.  The total for all three auctions plus shipping was $76.31.  Not great, but not bad.

What surprised me was how large the Demogorgon and Orcus figures were.  They were twice as tall as I expected.  Here's a picture I took of them both next to a 25mm Storm Giant and a Githyanki Knight.

I don't know why I didn't expect them to be so big, because they are large creatures in the Monster Manual, but it did.  It just goes to show how informative it can be to players when they see these minis on the gaming table next to their puny minis.   :twisted:

That one titled "Mountain of Mystery" by Dimension Six looks really familiar. I can't remember if I saw it in a recent Ebay lot or flipping through stuff at a local game store. Is that tough to find?

Its not too difficult to find.  Its probably the 2nd easiest of the Dim6 items to find.  Its probably worth $10-$15 maybe $20 depending on condition.

Thanks for letting me know. I picked up about six or seven Polyhedrons (with the covers) for $1 apiece, along with some various Dragon issues (nothing collectible-amazing..just for reading purposes), and then also a JG Pegasus #1 in really nice condition for $1 as well.  :D But I'm pretty sure I recognized that Mountain of Mystery cover there. I thought I had seen that Necromancer CSIO book a while back there (which is really why I was spending so much time looking through the shelves), but when I returned, I couldn't locate it  :(

I sold a copy about 4 weeks ago (Good condition see scans) for $8.55 plus cost to ship.

They often do sell fairly cheap but I think if you put it up for BIN of $15-20 you would get it.  They do get small spine creases and cover wear quite easily so really nice copies are difficult to find.
