I noticed on the site that she is a bit backed up so I'll wait a few months and come with a good one... I'm thinking an Oriental Adventures female adventurer like in the Holloway paintings.  I'll have to find the right mini... perhaps the Reaper site can help.   :wink:

I've found 3 people ripping off the "R" series and my Aquaria campaign that way. Trademark infringment on TSR properties and personal insult to boot. So it's a regular habit of mine. :/


That's just weird to find a postcard with your same name on it.

Especially slightly before you were born... :wink:

Today I went to a giant white elephant sale in Oakland, CA to benifit a local museum and I found a 1st ed copy of Talisman by GW from 1983 that is in excellent condition and 100% complete. Also included with the game was the first expanion set as well! I got it for $1!  8O

Also found a copy of the Dungeon boardgame for $3, Origins of WWII by Avalon Hill in mint condition, and a collection of a ton of Warhammer fantasy figures - someones army. Look to be all metal and all are painted, some are huge. Spent the most on that lot, came with a carrying case which I will likely keep after selling off the armies. That one cost me $50 but I have to imagine the armies are worth more than that...

All in all a good day!!  :D

My ~$200 bid would've been totally over-run, and I thought that was fairly high :)

The guy's got boxes of them and he's selling them at £1.99 a pop. E-mail him if you want one. He's pretty slow at responding to e-mails BTW.


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

I cancelled my snipe that was set at $225 because I decided that I didn't want it that bad and reset it at ~$177.  After I got my notice that my snipe was too low, I changed my mind again and tossed in a manual bid anyway. :roll:   Looks like I have been saved form myself again. :wink:

thankyou - this is prb the item i have been trying to get for the longest, so am very happy to win it. yeah its prb a fair bit more than i wanted to pay, but hey thats the way it goes sometimes isnt it. at least the condition of the item is worthy of the value. i doubt i would have paid this much if it was just a.n.other off ebay and having dealt with devon many times before, i know i can rely on them many times over so there we are!

yes i am very happy!

Al

*avoids making any comments 'bout people who search for themselves on eBay (or Google!)*  


I never even thought to Google myself until my wife got bored at work one evening and a co-worker suggested she Google me after they had run out of things to Google; impressed the hell out of them and gave her a nice warm glow. Found references that said I had died, OD'd, joined a monastery in Upper Peninsula (LoL), or was living somewhere in Asia....

Now that my Master's Thesis has been published, the numbers can only go up...

How strange to be able to "weigh" your life like this...

So how DID you like being a monk in Asia?

:roll:


Don't care for the UP myself, tho it's only half an hour away...

I was wondering that too, Frank, given quotes like "How strange to be able to "weigh" your life like this... The trap is in putting credence to the "weight"" :)

Somewhat deeper than usual, around here, Tim ;)

Got tired of rice and raw fish; raw fish is bait.

On the Age of Wonders Heaven board, I am renowned for my skill at cruising the aether... Now you guys know how I learned...

Were you thinking "deep" as in profound, or deep as in should have worn my boots?

I am a school teacher that just finished a Masters degree at 57, I had to talk like that the last 2.5 years.

If your definition was the former, I'm glad to help raise the bar for the board; if the latter, see preceding.

Hey that would be way too easy: we don't all have a closet-full of waders! :)

The former, actually. And a pleasure to have you stop by, even if not for long(?).

Know what you mean 'bout talking that way: reminds me of the fun I've had at various times, such as when I had to adapt such approaches freely to get any sort of reaction from a pride of carnivore biologists with degrees coming out of their ears (and ivory towers under too many rumps for my liking). Not that they all used exclusionist idiomatics all the time.

Congrats on the Masters, btw.
I dodged that one - or it dodged me; I can't remember for sure, now... :?
