Should have split up those two.. I don't have Lord Farrick's Keep either, but bidding on both is a pain..

I don't have either of them, my bid may be a bit more aggresive
:wink:

I think I have a problem.  I'm thinking I may want to bid too - really tough to let them pass :(

Only this time there will be no one around to grab a hold of someone's arm, drag it down, and tell them they are being stupid.

So why wasn't the 3rd book also with this group, or was it sold separately?


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

Well if I was not in saving mode (for NTRPG and Gencon) then I would have raised your "more aggressive" bid with a "blind stupidity bid."  However, I will not be participating in this auction.

Hi Sherri---

Is Alex or Alexander Anesko credited in the art for To the Aid of the Dwarves?  I have copies of pictures of his that might have been used in that product.

Hi Grodog, I just replied to your message on e-bay too.  They are mostly all signed by "Butler" and then some aren't marked - most are Butler though.

Just for the record I'll mention Lord Farrick & Spider Mother sold for $462 and To the Aid of Dwarves sold for $692.

Seems to be a good time to be a small press rpg seller :)

If someone here won To the Aid of the Dwarves, do please get in touch---I'd like to validate whether or not my friend Alex's art was used in it at all or not.

Given that all the top bidders were members here, not really.




And, for those of us who can unscramble the ebay userids, is it wrong to point out who won something?  It IS available information, if one knows how to look for it...


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, Pendragon, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based, CoC, Runequest

Planning: BRP/Harn

I think if the winner wants to make it known, let them do it themselves.  I've never understood why all the secrecy around here, but I'm sure people have their own legitimate reasons.

Besides, if someone really wants to know...let them figure it out themselves.  :wink:

We do/did have a thread were we all listed eBay IDs and I vaguely recall it being updated based on eBay's bogus obfuscation-supporting-shilling rules, so I certainly don't have a problem having those dots connected.

I had thought about bidding, but had a lot of trouble putting Henry down to bed last night, so I missed the auction closes---and the bids definitely outpaced my appetite for either item ;)
