Sweet that they were inspired and took the time to create (*cough* trace) that line art from the original color illo.

Personally I love it, even if the contents are likely to be "of dubious saleability" in addition to that rip...

(Better value for amusement than their somewhat grubby, spine-rolled copy of The Dragon Crown?)

Sometimes I wish I was less scrupulous. Anyone remember the guy awhile back who was selling the detached City State inserts from Pegasus magazines for a tidy sum? And people have been selling Dragon magazine inserts (including modules, games, monster and treasure supplements, etc) for as long as Ebay has been around.

Hey, Mike; what about those adverts cut from the 'zines? Never did check to see how many of those actually sold. :)

I know there was a guy who did pretty well on Ebay BITD selling the adverts cut out of magazines for a couple bucks apiece, funny thing was you could practically get the entire magazine for the same price....

My favorite was the guy who placed a previously unseen  publication...photocopied onto brown parchment paper...in the picture for his Ebay listing.

He did not mention the publication (which looked like an old-school gem of some sort) in his listing.  He just included the parchment paper in the picture and let it simmer in the minds of whoever wanted to bid.

Yes, I think that it was interesting as an effort to create something original with photocopy. I was even going to bid on these homebrew items. But I was going to bid 5 bucks, no more, at least to see if he created a original "mock-up" by cut/paste Dragon mag' articles.

Charity auctions can't and shouldn't be measured on any sort of normal scale.  One hopes the prices get silly!

Considering that there's less than 100 of these Limited Edition books, I'd say it's a steal at that price.



I wouldn't be surprised if the prices on these books his $1,000.00.



It's the new brown box.   :)

I read the other day instead of nuclear waste suits workers at the plant are using plastic garbage bags to "protect" themselves.  Hopefully the money raised will go to buy new hazmat uniforms!

For many people who never played the older versions of the game that could be true indeed.

And I could see Paizo take over from Wizards completely in a couple of years. At least over at the local gamestore Pathfinder seems to be immensely more popular than 4E.

15 books at 10 euros each.  Would that be...what...twice the price?  If it were dollars would it make more sense?

Hah - maybe a 3 years ago.  A British pound is only about a $1.60 now.  Still ambitious auction though.

Yeah, I know a lot of Toads e-Bay stock is WAY overprice, but Even for the Toad, this one is simply insane.   :?



And I thought the SWed copy that recently sold for just Above $60 was a tad high. :lol:

Despite the recent rash of listings for them, a complete Wraith Overlord in decent condition is not easy to find.

And $30 wont (usually) touch a complete Wraith Overlord that is NOT SWed and in the SW it will most likely almost always sell for more than $40.

My top bid was above $40 for the SWed copy that recently sold for over $60.
And I would bid that much again on the next one that shows up in original SW too.
