How many of us could have convinced our spouse that we should name our son Conan?  I can only imagine the frosty reception that would have gotten from my wife.

There would probably be fewer strange looks today...with Conan O'Brien as a well-known name.

Funny how many people can properly pronouce O'Brien's first name ("COH-nun") and yet they insist that Howard's character is "coh-NAN."

Kids today have all sorts of bizzare names (as we have discussed elsewhere).

My brother-in-law seriously wanted to name his first son Fahfrd (as in...."and the Grey Mouser").

While on the subject of Tadashi ... this photo fell out of one of the items I bought from Greg.  The back has it labelled Origins 78.   I looked at some of the pictures on the Different Worlds sight and can recognize Tadashi - his smile hasn't changed - also good to see that he no longer leaves the nipple exposed.   I don't know who the person on the left is though?

Now that's a great photo! :D :D  I believe that the guy in the middle is Greg Stafford, and yes, Tadashi still looks the same.  No idea who the woman on the left is.  Would you like me to forward the link to Tadashi, Mark, or would you rather do so yourself?

I'll send him a pm.  I might place an order while I'm at it too :)

I assumed that was Greg in the middle too although I can't seem to find a recent picture of him.  Maybe I should post a link in the thread he checks too.

He would like that.  He enjoys talking about Chaosium and his projects.

Geez....Tadashi looks like he stepped right out of an Anime production.

I haven't seen this larger sticker before; IIRC, the one I have appears smaller in size:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0099466715



Has anyone else noticed variant sizes on these?

Out of my price range.  I am waiting for someone to post a less than perfect boxed set so the condition collectors are not as interested.

Wow, maybe I need to change my mind about my Theives Guild stuff and sell that off too. :wink:

Man I'm glad I got them all, though I must say that they are not bad products at all. Some very good material.

That TG 1-3 + Haven lot has been listed for at least a year, FYI, so it hasn't moved at all with the price tag shown....

Actually, I have no idea what this set sells for, nor was I able to get any good info checking completed/current auctions.  Every so often, I just have no idea what to set a price at, so I figured I'd go high, let it run for a month or two, see how many watchers I get and adjust accordingly.  



For the record . . . 3 watchers so far, and one offer for $50 including shipping . . . I decided that was a little low at this time . . .

The $190 included the $45 postage so $145 (still steep I know) but what with the exchange rate & all ...

Wow!  Has anyone around here mentioned Thieves Guild lately?

Thieves Guild...Wow!

Who likes Thieves Guild?

Who here is looking for a copy of Thieves Guild Second Edition (boxed set)?

Man, oh, man!  I bet if there were copies of Thieves Guild Second Edition up on Ebay they would really sell well...even if there were mulitple copies up at the same time.

I mean, boy howdy!  Thieves Guild!
