:lol:

I have most all of his newest products and I do not mind the smoke smell too much, otherwise I would not have bought the second item, much less all the others. 8)

But yes, the smoke smell is obvious and can be smelled from a good ways off too.
Being the writer/self publisher (and a heavy smoker) I do not know what he could do to eleviate that.
I suspect that him quitting smoking is highly unlikely and I for one want him to continue to produce as many products as he can.

I will continue to (As best I can) ignore and certainly forgive the smoke smell.

Every item I have purchased from Pied Piper has smelled like smoke at first.  Now none of them do since I know how to get rid of it.  Now if they smelled like cat piss....then I might complain.

I've tried a couple of different methods.  The first one I used was putting a dryer sheet in-between a couple of the pages and putting the module in a mylar bag.  That just ended up masking the smoke smell with "Summer Breeze" or "Spring Meadow"....so dont do that.  So I tried putting another smoky module in a plastic tupperware type container with baking soda.  I just laid the module in there with one of those Arm & Hammer baking soda bricks with the vent on it.  I left it in the box for about a week and I can't smell the smoke at all anymore.  I have read activated charcoal works as well.

However....I can't guarantee this will work for everything.  The modules that I did this to were a couple of Judges Guild and the PPP ones.  Might not work as well on the TSR modules that had the different paper.

I think my wife wouldn't mind that  8)

Thanks for the info, I have a couple of items that I would like to try the "baking soda" method, and see if it works...

i bought Tom Wham's personal copy of a pad of the 1009 character record sheets about 4 years ago and the pad, while beautiful, smelled a little...musty. i used 3 dryer sheets, but kept the items out in the open. the musty smell went away in about three months. and there is no lingering fabreze scent either. with some original stuff of Rob Kuntz that i have acquired i used the lay them out on the piano for a year to air out plan. the smoky smell did finally go away.

It seems unprofessional to me that a new item would arrive smelling like smoke.  I'm not saying anyone shouldn't smoke - that's their call - but couldn't these be stored somewhere neutral until shipped?  They're not printed in his basement, are they?

Where?  Switzerland?  :wink:

Honestly....I dunno.  You'll have to ask Rob where he stores his stuff.  He ships everything himself most likely so until he stops smoking, regardless of what he does there will always be a slight smoke smell to his products.

I ordered some PPP books in June.  One or two smelled slightly like smoke, and the rest were smoke-free.  So you pays your money, you takes your chances.  :)

Quit yer whinin'.  I didn't want to start an entirely new thread just to mention it.  And I was at work and didnt have time to dredge up any of the older PPP threads.

Sue me.  :P

I think the thread should really be named "interesting items for sale" instead of being Ebay specific.
