In response to her screaming I said 'calm down or I'll report you to eBay' -- and so she tried to flip it. Wrong...

But actually the woodie New Zealand version IS spelled that way, and its pieces are a little different from the ubiquitous Mattel plastic version. :)

Now there you have me. No idea. And that's what threw me... how did she get the 3k+ rating when she acts like this? Zero repeat customers? Not corroborated by the ratings... ::mystified::

Confused....by.....unintelligible......feedback......

Maybe it was a copy/paste error?

You must have pissed them off.  Or maybe it was your eBay Avatar?  :)

Oh well, feedback was positive and that's what counts.

Actually, if you look at the cover, Mourtair of Mystery appears to be what the overly arcane text is spelling out.



I puzzled over this myself.  Of course...I didn't puzzle over it, get it wrong, and then post it on Ebay.  But I can see how it happened.

Show a little understanding for a poor seller struggling with what is no doubt a foreign tongue.  He's from Wolverhampton. :wink:


Shanghai fun & friends!

I'm willing to believe that this is a typo

This lot is in good condition, especially considering the age.


when most of the lot is Free RPG Day materials and promos no more than three years old.

Dude wants $713 for AH's Witchcraft Ritual Kit.


** expired eBay auction **


I'm not sure how well this is going to work. Seems like you could buy it & then use the magic rituals to make the seller refund your money.

Troll and Toad says that this is a core rulebook for an RPG, but I don't think that this qualifies as an either an RPG or a core rulebook:

Perhaps it is a variation of White Wolf's Storytelling System.  ;)
