This is another one that I thought went high:




** expired eBay auction **




Again, I have had an extra one of these for sale for a few years now at $25 - its on hold now though.

OK....on a lark I went after this publication online after seeing it here.



I found the Silver Wolf Gaming website and I ordered one each of all six dungeon levels.  I figured, "what the heck?" since they were available for $1.50 each.



But wait!  That's not the funny part!



Along with my order I asked the author, Kristoffer A. Silver, to sign the six dungeon levels for me.  Here was his reply:



Your order has been shipped.... One has an autograph. For obvious time restraints, I cannot sign everything that goes out. I would get nothing else accomplished!



"Ay'yuh, signin' six er so o' them there modular thingies ez jus toooo much fer these here hans' tuh sign!  Ah gets so tiiiiiired, yuh know."



Wow, way to guarantee return customers!   8O   How did you ever find time to pick up six modules out of their boxes much less sign them?  I apologize for even asking!  :x   What was I thinking? :oops:



As for the modules themselves, I will limit myself to only positive comments:



1)  They exist.

2)  They arrived quickly with combined shipping.

3)  They were printed in 1986.

4)  I only paid $1.50 each for them and a damn good thing, too.  :shaking2:



As for their contents, I can only say:  "Huh?"  "What?"  "Huh?"  :scratch:



I have no idea why these have not sold out to rabid RPG fans everywhere.  :?  I can see why the heavy volume of orders pouring in to Silver Wolf must keep the proprietor from wasting time with signing his name six whole times!  :!:



Anybody wanna pay $66 for them?

Yes, that is the reaction I would expect for your purchase.  You really need the core rules book to make any sense of the others.  I believe the "dungeon books" really only contain a bunch of numbers on their hex/grid pattern which by themselves is just jibberish.  When I started searching for these, I found one only comic shop that had a couple copies of one of the dungeon levels and I ordered a couple of them.  When they arrived I had the same reaction.

For anyone interested in these, its a good warning that the dungeon level books are useless by themselves.

While D&D, it's not TSR.



A victim of major 'oops' syndrome, a lot of 3E books, with a BIN of a cool million. Get 'em while they're cheap!

I don't think this is an oops. I think it is a way to get people to notice this auction.

It's one of those iSoldIt franchises, too. That's all I need to know to run away screaming and raising my holy symbol, regardless of items or price.

Those should all be worth about $20ea. TOPS! so MAYBE $150-200 for the lot.

I sold a couple of these the other month for $25 each and they went quick so I would suggest $30-$35 each max.  $100+ each is pretty crazy.

I'm confused... I thought it was just a typo (well, two typos), then there's a reference in the auction text to $1200 copies on Amazon  8O


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

The seller is taking his price off of Amazon's high end price.  It happens.

Well I've started tracking the necromancer judges guild items for the valuation board and this is the first Wilderlands set I've seen this week. There are a couple of Amazon sets up for the $1200 prices, but to me this is pure madness.


EDIT: What is more interesting is the Necromancer 8 pack from amberdexterity was taken down today with no bids, ending it about 2 days early and no relisted lot going up.

When I see companies or owners of companies reselling their own items (or trying to) at ridiculous prices, it makes me wonder how the companies themselves are run.

For example, this guy obviously has no clue about the selling price of these sets so it makes me wonder if he actual ever kept track of the hobby or not.  Since it is such a dumbass price, it makes me wonder what other dumbass comments/decisions he has made such as dealing with RJK or even that Dreadmire guy.

Much to my chagrin as one of the cancelled bidders!

As much as I respect their work, that price is pure lunacy.
