Oh I know my perspective is skewed :)  I was just trying to point out that for an early RPG, Legacy is one that is on the easier side to find - a fair number (maybe 1000 or more?) must have been made and it had good distribution.

Rolemaster rocks!!
Plus, best combat system ever.  Genuinely exciting.

...although rolemaster must be the only roleplaying game where all the house rules are not about adding in new rules, but taking away official ones :)[/u]

1st print CoC Deluxe signed edition box set:  ** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **





This could have easily gone in one of the "silliest" threads... because it sure isn't mint as described, and that nasty ashtray in the background doesn't give me much hope beyond that.  It will still be interesting to watch what this brings.



Glad I got one a while back on the cheap!

Not nearly as disturbing as the bottle of lotion next to the bed. This seller truly understands horror...

I believe that's a glass marijuana pipe in one of the pictures, too. At least the proceeds from the auction will go to a good cause :).

With an Ebay handle of tybud420 I'm sure you are correct about the pipe.  And I'm fairly certain that those are resin stains on the shrinkwrap in the second photo.

Yes I think you're right, one of those new-fangled green-swirly-glass affairs. Did this guy sneak into my house to take the pictures?

What is this, The Edition Wars? Would that make 4e analogous to K2? I guess Holmes would be old-fashioned, pre-hydro red hair.

Oh and check out this other item the seller has up for auction:
