I know of at least one that was sold, but IIRC he had been starting the auctions for them at $40 at one point.  His MERP and Rolemaster auctions were also being set at very high $ amounts and they werent selling either.

I have thought of biting at the 3rd print Iron Wind with the Cloudlords of Tanara a couple of times.  I don't think $14.99 is a bad price at all for that.

I dont know where this guy is getting these.  He has sold quite a few of them the last several months.




I have one of these and the cover is way more yellowish than the picture here!

You can just barely see the parchment texture in the picture.  Could it just be a washed-out photo?

It seems like this photo is a bad one which is a bit odd since his other ones seem pretty good.  The seller confirmed that is yellowish rather than white as well so it seem legit just bad photo.  Also, he does have a lot ICE stuff and multiple copies of some of them.  If anyone is seriously considering buying it they may want to ask for a better photo.

You'd actually use it? Course it would be better with your tea then what can be bought over here.

Oh yes - I would certainly use it. Of course, I would then wash straight away it so it doesn't get tea stains.  :D  But, my D&D mugs are kept in a kitchen cabinet (ready for use) rather than on shelves or packed carefully away.  

As to tea - I prefer Yorkshire Tea.

http://www.yorkshiretea.co.uk

Which makes a nice strong brew.  But I actually think you can make a good cup of tea with any old teabags.  what is most important is (a) just-boiled water, (b) fresh milk (no, not that long life stuff), (c) let the teabag brew for a minute, (d) a good chocolate biscuit. Of all these the most important is water temperature.  You simply cannot get a good cuppa without boiling water.

Here is a helpful website.

No really, it is.

No, it isn't a joke.

Really.

May have to try that Yorkshire tea out.
Not sure which brand it was that I had tried that was brought back from the UK, but it was far superior to anything I've found here.

Thanks!

Absolutely, I'm more of an oolong man myself but I agree that Yorkshire tea is quite good. I'd also recommend http://stashtea.com/.

I don't think it is terribly exciting.  It seems to be pretty massively produced though.

Hi Bombadil -



I have a copy that I picked up on ebay last year - I saw it and picked it up on a whim. It's not as interesting as it first appears though. Let me know if you want more info on it before you decide to bid, and I'll dig it out.



Regards



Mike
