Frank why not just offer them here on The Acaeum?  You would have plenty of interested parties.  I just sold my Beastmaker here about a year ago; I think I just asked everyone to send me their highest bid and the high one got it (Maybe I priced them, can't remember). That way they go to people you know will appreciate them, you'll get the amount you want, and you save money on ebay listing and selling fees. Frankly the winner will probably end up being an Acaeum member anyway....just cut out the middle man.

Possible stupid question alert: Has anyone actually seen a shrinkwrapped Nanorien Stones that didn't have a blue cover?  Or a shrinkwrapped Beastmaker that didn't have a red cover?  I havent looked at my Fez in awhile but IIRC there isn't any title information anywhere on the folder outside or inside...just the Role Aids name and logo.  How does anyone know that a green cover Nanorien isnt the result of some jackhole switching the blue cover for the green Fez cover just to be different or to get more money for their item because it is a "rare" abberation?

Does anyone have any documented information that this was done intentionally or otherwise by the publisher?

As for the brown Fez....maybe someone accidentally mixed the green and red ink that day at the printer.  :wink:

Actually there is one way to know the folders go Nanorien blue, Beastmaker red, and Fez green if it has the product list sheet. Each of them has a product list on one side and modules information (much like the backs of old TSR mod with a pic and description) in the color that matches the folder.
I'd be interested in knowing if the alternate colored folders have this sheet (and getting a pic of both sides - no not for another subweb ;) )
Course Kobold Hall and Blasted lands I don't think have this product list sheet (mine don't and I don't recall an auction of them including one).

I seem to recall my Kobold having a product list sheet, but even if it did, would it not be possible that it was transferred to the KH from another module?

Beastmaker, Nanorien Stones and Fez all have descriptions on the front of the sheets so they can not be transfered to any other module. Not sure about one in the Kobold Hall and Blasted Lands as I've said, but for it to be transferable with another Kobold Hall or another Blasted Lands then it would have to be single sided (and they'd both have to match, another thing with the 3 later folder ones, their product lists go in chronological order with what is released and what is soon to be.)

I wonder how long it was at the bottom of Loch Ness before he decided to sell it.

I do realize it would be someone from here who wins, but I've always been a little gunshy about the silent auction thing. It kind of strikes me as money-grubbing. Don't get me wrong, I am not an eBay fan, but at least with that venue you can see what is going on.
I didn't get to it last night, had to drive 200 miles to take a Cisco test, but I will this weekend.

Well, I posted them tonight. A brown Fez and a green Nanorien in the lot. I read through each one; I had forgotten how good they actually are!

Looking at Frank's Kobold Hall auction, it just occurred to me that the one I sold a while ago was in an orange folder.  Actually, it was sort of reddish-orange.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw it also, IIRC both mine ( Kobold Hall ) are in distinctly orange folders, to add Both Nanorien Stones & Fez are alt colors of mine also...

Mine was either in the 200s or 500s.  Can't recall for sure.
