Well, I've had some very positive emails from them already, so I don't see it going wrong, unless its due to being overseas.

I'll let you guys know when the package arrives, I'm looking forward to reading these 3 after you've all been chatting about them recently!  :)

I'm sure it'll all go well, always remember to buy-safe...

(fyi, 2+days, 2 email from me, and no response re the missing book... I'm sure just an easily correctible mistake, and believe me not worth the aggravation, but their feedback won't be 100% for much longer  :? )

Two days can be frustrating but it isn't that long.  Have you re-contacted them?

Yes you're absolutely right... the seller sent a nice note today and will be shipping the book out at their expense... I couldn't ask for anything more :)

My experiences with Ebay have included one liar and one scam artist and the rest have been really nice people and good sellers.

There have been five or so transactions where I was sent the wrong item.  They have all been corrected by the seller without cost to me.

There have been two items that did not get through the mailing process in 100% good shape.  I just let it go both times.   Both times, the item suffered minor damage.  I let the seller know that the packaging did not work, but I did not make a fuss.  I figure part of the Ebay community experience is having realistic expectations on my end.

I have given one negative feedback...to the liar mentioned above, when he persisted in his lie.  

I have not yet decided about the scam artist.  He sold my wife a book that was actually an illegal PDF.  I filed a PayPal dispute and got an immediate refund.  (I also told my wife that if there is no shipping cost she ought to ask why.)

I have not decided whether or not to give the scam artist negative feedback because he was smart enough to give in immediately.  In my view, negative feedback should be reserved for the most egregious cases.

OK, here is the link to the Troll and Toad "RPG Clearance Sale"

Some people don't like Troll and Toad.  I have not had big problems with them.

There are some nice items here, including some modules for $.99 or $1.99 and others for low prices.  (And some not that low in price.)

Something that might be of interest:  Dungeon Crawl Classics modules for prices ranging from "ho hum" to "pretty damn good."

The website is a little clunky compared to Paizo.  I told it to load up 200 at a time and that made it a bit easier to cruise through the sale.

There is a LOT of stuff on sale here...easily worth searching through.

Since more than one person is ordering from this sale, it might be logical to wait and see what they think of their purchases.

I'm curious as to what people are ordering?  I looked at the sale and wasn't really impressed by most of the prices - only 1 or 2 seemed like a good deal.  A couple of the Blackmoor books were cheap (in the suggest $5 range) but others were $20.

YAWN!
meh....
I failed to notice anything there that I thought was a great deal.
A few splat books for $1.99... (yes, some at .99 even)
Most of the $1.99 sale items are splat books that I had never even heard of last week, or off brand D20, or other RPGs that I do not collect.
And most of the other items are easily found on E-Bay every day in the same range of prices... and some for less.


But is a T&T Sale, really a sale?
Yeah, for T&T it is a huge sale.
Especially since they commonly list items for double, triple and even quadruple the items actual value, so a T&T half off sale is still a nice profit for them and they get plenty of movement from folks thinking the deals are unbeatable.
Not really a sale after all (IMO).
Of course I was not interested in almost any of it anyway, so perhaps my judgment of that T&T sale is being skewed by my complete and total disinterest.
To many, the Clearance Sale is a huge deal, to me it looks more like is T&T trying to get rid of overstock by selling the stock at more realistic prices.

I am sure that many folks will find a few gems (gems to them) that they cannot pass up for the price.
I will admit also... that at $1.99 (or even .99) even an almost useless splat book can be cheap entertainment.
Still, After searching through both pages twice (I picked the view choice for 200 items per page) my shopping cart remains empty....

:lol:
I have seen this sell for less than that on E-Bay not just once, but on several occasions, and the SALE price for T&T is $89.99 for Mint, or just $80.99 in used condition....

I have a Mint set in the original Shrink Wrap, in case anyone is interested in a real sale. 8)

Just waiting to hear back from the seller, but anyone have an idea on what shipping should be to the UK on these three? Don't know the weight, so I can't check on the sites.

EDIT - Seller has come back already, $15 shipping! Sounds like a deal. 25 bucks for all 3 inc shipping to the UK    :)




Package turned up today! Very, very impressed with the seller. The books are faultess, the packaging took a little damage, but the books were fine.

All three books and shipping for a few pence under £17. Chuffed with that!  :D

well, first very, very quick scan is positive and I'm looking to reading these properly. Thanks for the tips!

Also, as an aside, I think its mighty impressive that they turned up quicker than several UK sellers I've purchased from!

However if you can get City of Gods and Temple of the Frog you'll have the best Blackmoor books for 3.x
