I already had that one, and I suppose others had it as well.. annoyed I missed out of 14/15.. its now the only one I have left to get.. I went out to buy the ones I was missing just to get it out of the way, just trying to concentrate on finishing a couple of the magaine runs...

Meant to ask: were you in on the bidding on those Stormbringer monographs he also had?

My snipes were quickly surpassed in the final bidding. :(

How about a Scotland Aceaum meet and greet in October? We have a visiting dignitary from over the water, so maybe an evening in a pub is called for?

I already have issue 11, the only ones that I am missing are 1,2,3 and 7.
The frequency that they are appearing on eBay seems to be diminishing so I am probably going to have to pay more than I originally wanted to if I want to complete the collection.  :(

On a happy note I recently bought Pagan Publishing's Golden Dawn for $40.00 at the Abe Books online store. Still waiting to receive it.

I got a laugh out of the minimum price and the description on this one:




** expired eBay auction **




The seller states that www.boardgamegeek.com values it at $390.  Apparently the seller didnt pay a whole lot of attention while at boardgamegeek or he would have realized that there isnt a valuation for the game.  They have a marketplace section where you can buy the games from other members.  The listing for Riddle of the Ring for $390 has been up since 9/7/2007.  :roll:

This is what happens when certain people pay stupid prices for crappy RPG supplements/adventures:




** expired eBay auction **




Now every seller that pays attention to those auctions will raise their prices to ridiculous levels.  At least the seller allows a potential buyer to make an offer.

These have come down some in price over the last year but they still fetch a tidy sum.  Especially if they are complete, unpunched, and in great condition.  A year ago people were paying upwards of $100 for one of these.  The seller could definitely do himself a favor and add pictures and description of the contents.

Wow, how do you keep up with what lance buys?
Looking on ebay he has won 625 items in the last month alone - even if many are miniatures, that's a sure fire way to get a lawsuit from your postman due to the hernia you've caused him :D

(I'm just jealous really - wish I had all the kit Lance has! (And as it goes, he's bought a good amount of stuff from me over the last year or so and he comes across as a real decent guy - I personally wish everyone I dealt with on ebay was like him))
