Yep.  When you do this and select "No, I want to contact the seller" you get the message:

"We're sorry we couldn't find an answer for you. Unfortunately, this seller is not able to respond to your question. We suggest reviewing the item again to see if your answer is in the seller's listing."

and you can't type in a message and send it off.


Hey everyone,

Thanks for the answers regarding Court of Ardor.
And Mars is exactly right, that's what happened to me too. :(

Best regards,

Hi MetamorphosisSigma,
I am selling this set on Ebay and noticed your message. I found this item, in this condition, at an estate sale. I have no intention to defraud anyone with this item. The packaging does appear to be "as new" from Skyrealms Publishing. The books inside the plastic are in pristine condition and the plastic wrapping is of a thick industrial type, not a cheaper shrink wrap. I would however appreciate anyone's confirmation on if this was the way this game was shipped. I make every attempt to list my items with honest descriptions. I would absolutely change this item if confirmed that this was not original packaging.

Thank you,
Yorbalinda_Dave


Thanks for responding here, and providing some additional info. I didn't mean to say or imply that you as the seller were doing anything wrong. I understand a lot of these items are being auctioned by sellers who aren't necessarily in a position to know if the state the items is in is "original". I was just curious if any of the members here (some of whom, unlike myself, might have purchased this boxed set when it was first released) could confirm that these books were shrinkwrapped inside the box by SRP. I've never heard of a publisher doing that, and was speculating to myself that perhaps it was something done by a game store between 1985 and now to keep the contents together...?

No offense taken. I was actually quite pleased someone was talking about this item. Your question of it's authenticity is well placed and potential buyers should always be dubious and ask questions. I would be happy to post more images of this packaging if any of the collecting experts here could make a determination. Perhaps if no answer is found here I will try to contact WayesBooks, it seems they have a good knowledge of this set.

Thanks again,
Yorbalinda_Dave

I hate that you have a nose for hidden gems... :(

But if it had not been you, no doubt someone else would have peeked inside and posted here.



The seller is obviously clueless.

So many hidden gems in such a crowded lot with the WRONG picture posted, and little description.

If this was my stuff; I would most certainly have listed several items in this lot seperately.



As for the rest of you... yes please do move along, nothing to see here.

At least I waited until it had gotten some attention.  Saw it right away, but didn't post until it hit $100.

Nice Morrow Project lot:

Not quite a complete set but at around $7 per book (including shipping costs) its still a pretty good deal.  Resellers usually list these at $15 - $20 (or more if its shrinked) per book.

They normally sell for around $5 which is what this one is at now.

I know some of you still do not have a copy.



Nothing better to explain in detail what certain weapons look like, or what they were designed to do and in what situations.

And then the same for Aromo, then the same for Castles...

Classic Game Aid.

Great for showing young players and a great help for DMs.



Get one...  8)



I have two copies.

One is quite shelf worn, the other will eventually take that copies place.

It was a fairly short lived magazine covering RPGs and CCGs, if I remember right.

I asked the seller for more info about the condition, and he's posted the answer. Then I realized that's actually ATWM vol I (red) and III (yellow). The seller has them listed incorrectly as I and II in the auction. If you expand the picture you can see the III on the cover of the yellow copy. I sent him another message so hopefully he'll correct it.

Yes, Volume II of that series is Blue in color.
In order:
Volume I Red
Volume II Blue
Volume III Yellow

And for those that have any interest, there are several pringtings of each Volume.
Some have rougher (not shiny) paper stock covers, and others (1st Prints) are loose sheets that are hole punched for a 3 ring binder.

I'd love to have a perfect bound edition of ATWM Volume II in order to match my perfect bound copies of I and III.

Did they ever print a perfect bound III?

Not sure what "Perfect Bound" means...

I have a copy of Vol. II that is the rougher paper stock with staples.
Do not know if Vol. III ever came in that format.

As for loose leaf pages, I have Vol I and Vol II in that format.
Do not know if Vol. III ever came in loose leaf format.

Perfect bound is the square pressed binding with the heated glue. Don't recall seeing ATWMII in that format. The PB ATWM was a later reprint. The first printing was stapled. Can only assume they didn't get around to reprinting II.

Please see this thread (just posted).

http://www.acaeum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11357&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

The thread above shows pictures and printing data (copyright page) for all the copies of ATWM that I have.
The Copies that are Loose leaf Format are certainly 1st prints (Vol I and Vol II).
Stapled Format for Vol II clearly states 2nd print on copyright page.
Every copy I have (of any Vol) was published by Chaosium, Inc.
I have Never have seen any prints/reprints that suggest other publishers have produced these books in any format.

The way a trade paperback is bound.

As opposed to the usual copy of ATWM II, which is "saddle stitched," meaning bound with staples the way a classic module would be bound.

I think there are at least three printings of I and II, each by CHAOSium. Not reprinted by anyone else. The perfect bound glossy covers were the final prints, I hadn't seen the last one in the blue before, so that completes the picture there. There is a middle print that is folded/staples and not loose leaf hole punched. Great photos.
