If it weren't for such listings and the occasional possibility of getting something valuable for a bargain, I would probably give up this hobby. One person's trash is another person's treasure after all.

Attention all shoppers:  DCC 3.5 now available on Aisle 3.



The Haunted Lighthouse Con Edition signed very rare




** expired eBay auction **




This is fairly hard to find and will likely go for a nice amount; however, I don't like the signature splashed across the front coverof the module.    8O



Enjoy  :D


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Werent the majority of these signed by Arneson?  The only ones I have ever seen all have the signature.



And odds are, no one will reach the reserve on this one.  I'm sure TFM doesnt really want to sell it anyways.  :roll:

I've only ever seen one copy on eBay that hasn't got the signature. There have been maybe five copies with signatures in the past three years. Still, very rare. Suspect it'll hit $250 before peeps give up pushing it. The reserve I'd imagine to be up at the $350 mark. No way I'd go above $200 in the current climate.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Yep. Expect to see it at Noble Knight Games for $500 in a month. Don't waste your time bidding on it.

Mine isn't since I bought it before Arneson was at the Goodman Games booth, and never brought it back there when he was.  Course I'd of had it signed had the opportunity presented itself.

That's Robert Jennings. He's actually the author if anyone is interested in arranging signings or a private deal offsite. I tried to buy in bulk from him a couple of years ago, but I found him a little flakey and being an international buyer complicated things even more.



Maybe there is the chance here for someone to buy up his remaining stock (certainly the D&D). They are always a good seller and to my knowledge we haven't seen signed copies on eBay before.



It would also be useful to fill the knowledge gap. I know there are mods that he wrote that he no longer has copies of (eg Dungeon of Dr Demento), but I don't think there is a definitive list of everything they put out. It would be good to get that confirmed.

Plus I would assume he's selling actual copies, not the bad photocopies that keep springing up on Ebay from unscrupulous selers...

Haven't noticed fakes on eBay. Were they pointed out at the time?
Yes, as far as I'm aware they are genuine copies he's selling, however, it would not be beyond his means, nor illegal, for him to be reprinting. The tell in at least two of the mods is the distinctive green paper (eg Werewolf Country). Would like more info on the fakes and how to identify them.

Even if it was the OOP softcover I'd say that it might be on the optimistic side. * ;)

It's possible he'll get bites though, as they were going for well over that when they were temporarily out of print and people might not know that it can be got cheaper.

(* But I don't know for certain.  The price may have sunk on them now that only collectors are looking for the softcover, or it may not have.)

Some of us are still looking for the original map, and not the larger, more detailed one. I had to go buy the facsimile one just to have something for the book. Damnit. But, yeah, the hardcover is probably a better buy but I think that price is too high... almost right for the original, though (or was for a while.)
