Hi guys,  I just picked up an "Installment W" Wilderlands of the Magic Realm, complete, in the original JG Mailing Envelope off eBay for the bargain price of $4.25!  If the pic is accurate, it is a second printing - also comes w/ Judges Guild Journal #14!  Pretty cool, no?    Paul

Argh!  "Pretty cool" is an accurate term.

Isn't Installment W only Part 2? One 16 Page book and two maps? Installment V is Part 1 of Magic Realms. Both myself and Killjoy have fallen for that one.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Still...installment W at a low price is still a good purchase.  Isn't it?

yes indeedy....me is far wiser for the experience :)

and yes, its still a pretty cool acquisition, although as Ian earlier stated, Instalment W is just the 2nd part of the set, but still, nice with the mailing envelope and the journal together.

I got that "Dark Tower" copy yesterday.  It has a ding on the back cover and a little shelf wear. Otherwise it is pretty clean.

   Hoot!  Hooooot!

   Just had to say it again.

:twisted:

There are two U.S. sellers who often get <$10 for their copies; down below $7 even, sometimes.

(latest one up doesn't have the BIN, though)
Weird... :o

Rightly happy you are.

Yeah, I managed to get a decent quote, though; and since was only one book, none of this "+50% for the others" lark.

Anyhow, other seller's most recent copy didn't even sell at $6.99 (hinted it was up for grabs at <$7 on another thread).

Noted your recommendation! Thanks.
Looking forward to finding out/agreeing, once I've de-shrinked my copy. :D

Bite, bite, bite! :P

Hey you, I've been working seven days a week recently and the only post office left in town is one of those loathesome shared shop jobs, with 30+ minute OAP/single parent queues unless you pick a very quiet time, which ain't so easy just now.

Ya need those "K"s for sets then, I take it?

Remember where they came from, though;

I'm probably still paying the $200 shipping charge, or whatever ;)

I have bought an item from Titan Games.

   I would only consider using them if they had one high-priced item I wanted.

    Titan's fixation with shipping charges and inflexibility are almost comical.  I once asked them to flex and actually got a nasty note in return:  "If you want low price then keep on looking!"

    Wierd.

I must've caught them on a good day.

It was $6 surface, $12 airmail, or $13 by global priority.

I must have hit a typo when I sent the invoice.  Honestly, I can't BELIEVE you paid it!  Wow.

I will refund you $13 immediately!!!

:D

Not as though I was going to let "K"s at $1.99 * 7 BIN go sailing by, whilst waiting for a response.

yeha i woulda grabbed them as well if i had seen them before you chummer :)

i just want some cos i aint got any of them. my more rare items i will eventually sell as a nice complete cool item, instead of this bit and that bit etc. thats what i plan anyways, but of course, i will always keep one copy for me for my own private stash :)

Reassuringly honest!

Is a bit of a problem in that they're pretty rare (haven't seen that many elsewhere on eBay in the past year or two), but "complete" in that context would really mean bundling I, J, K along with all relevant maps and journals.

The obvious concern being that the $ return might be better if sold individually, even though trying to gather complete sets would yield rather impressive "flagship" items for the store.

You're gonna kick yourself, Al. That looks like there's a Judges Shield in there with that lot too.
