Re: TUO #1 auction.  If you are a non-US buyer, you have to email him and ask his permission to bid (and presumably wait for him to grant permission or not).  I think that might put some people off placing bids.  Plus of course, there were pages not stapled in.  Agree - normal price more like $50-$60 or thereabouts.

This seller has a few Acaeum members banned from bidding on his items.
Has for years.
Dont know why and he aint saying.  :?

(Even with those issues, I would have bid $40-$45)

It is all good though, even though he has a LOT of great Stuff, he does not have a monopoly on collectable Stuff that I like.
There are a few hundred other sellers on E-Bay who are quite happy to take my money... when I have some... :lol:

Heh... no problem, I'm sure. Way too many TLAs as it is: perhaps rather a pity that RPG 'zines didn't adopt the same "pet name" approach that SF 'zines did. (Mind you, you have to be careful not to be looking /too/ silly in any public conversation what with the likes of Fido, Sally and Fay ;))

I didn't bid because of that...
Is it usually? I never read this problem on other TUO1 I saw on ebay before.

Must admit that doesn't ring any bells here, either; for bad or good.

eBay listings



the guy from Necromancer games has been drinking too much cough syrup.



I recently started picking up Necromancer titles and almost all of these are available for a fraction of these asking prices.

My copy doesn't have that problem.

Wasn't he trying to sell these for huge prices before as well?



$450 for Wilderlands (3 copies available)

$750 for RAR

$115 for IO (7 copies)



Lots of everything it seems.  Maybe this is why they went under.

Even though they are in SW it would not be worth even half that much.

$36 was way low for that city state. I was sorry to see it only went for that. If I still needed a copy for myself I would have jumped in.

That is pretty low,  I sold my extra copy a month ago for $65.  A couple others around that time sold for about $65 as well.

It is why I wondered if it was not a xeroxed copy. Even I know that Kynan is not trying to sell fake copies, but since he is not a CoC collector, perhaps he didn't find this strange.
Only a guess. I am perhaps totally wrong.

Maybe the 3rd printing had some sort of problem.

Obviously, he is not in a hurry to unload his last copies.

It could also be an extremely cheap way of advertising Necromancer games. You can still buy all of these as pdfs.

What's rare in this lot?  The blue 30-sider?  Some of the out-of-production colors?

This one is a complete stumper.

There are couple box sets I'd like to fill in with original dice... if they came up, I might pay around $5 for that.  But I have absolutely no clue what is in this to cause someone to pay about double what piles of brand new dice would cost.  Actually, make that a couple someones, because just one bidder can't drive the price up.

3 someones willing to bid $40 or more.. there are the blue uninked set from some early boxed set (real rough by the looks of it) another set from an old set, that orange d8 is in that set..

and that is the sum total I know about old dice.. period..

Can I interest anyone in a copy of Sea Kings of the Purple Towns?  Only about 2-3 times the going rate.



Anyone?  Anyone?
