Took a chance on this (no pic) but it came out okay.  The booklet has the "Ende" mark on the back.  So nice find for the money.

Was debating as well, especially it not having a bid till the end.

Glad knowing it went to someone from here.

I was soooo tempted myself, like Plaag watching it down to the wire (well, the last 30 minutes or so). But right now is not the best time for "collecting" type purchases.



Also, like Plaag, glad to know that "one of us" got it. Gooble-gobble.

Is it just me or does it look more like an amphibious goat?

I was watching it all week and forgot to bid.  Good for you LucyJoyce.  I was expecting a crushing bid from you know who.

Well I was watching the 'Revised City State of the Invincible Overlord' auction that was up here in the UK, but after my initial dabble, it finished at £32.50! Way out of my league for something I just wanted to have a read through... 8O
Shame, as I was also going to go for the 'Wraith Overlord', to make a set, which then ended up for £3!   :roll:
Oh well, another day...

I already had two copies of Booklet I (Yellow version) and one copy of Tegel Manor (Orange Booklet L).

But I have been looking for a copy of Thunderhold Booklet J for a long time now.



Sure none of the three are in minty condition and there were no maps either but I still think the final price was quite reasonable honestly.   8)

Closed out our storage space this weekend.  What a hassle, but that's a fair bit of money back in our pockets.

I have long been waiting to get to the back reaches of the storage space.  We moved in a rush and the last stages were chaotic.  

In the back of the space there were a few boxes marked "Crap" in my handwriting.   I knew that "Crap" meant it was my stuff, packed in a hurry.

Inside of those boxes was mainly game-related material, and.... Temple Book One and Castle Book One.  :twisted:

Long have they lain in that horde.  Since these two publications were stored there I have become a collector, joined this site and collected everything else now looming on my shelves.  But I have held off purchasing these two because I knew they had to be there.  I have left the spots open on my collection list and waited for this uniquely collector-ish moment.

Such joy over some rusted staples and a picture of a dude wearing a horned skull.  But, if you are reading this.....you know what I mean.   8)

Add to that:

The First Fantasy Campaign (3rd Print)

I had given up on finding that one.

Underused thread...

No Gamescience sticker or other distinguishing feature visible unfortunately. Did anyone ask?
(and no, I didn't check the feedback rating for the winner ;))

I thought that it was photocopies. I was wrong? :(

you were not wrong, it is a photocopy. i'm sure it was sold by zocchi bitd, he did that with a number of things; but it's still just a photocopy.

Yes, but it's a genuine, authorized copy, as is perfectly acceptable for PotVQs and OD&D supplements. Only a very small number were stated to have been made but they'd need a good provenance (e.g. Tadashi) for further investigation/comparison/etc.
Maybe some of the others to follow but so much for the radar here... :)

JG authorized several items to be photocopied and sold by Zocchi (Inferno was one) during the late 80s and early 90s, but even so I'd consider them something I wouldn't want to collect.  Authorized or not they are still merely photocopies, and very lousy ones at that (by the ones I've seen, at least).
