Okay, I have listed it - hope it gets to a good home! It is only a 3 day auction, but I imagine that anyone interested has already seen (or will soon read) this thread.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Excuse me, but the view count on this thread was still "1" after I'd posted. *points to the timestamps, on the previous page*
(Made sure I'd checked that, in case of such comments... ;))

===



Appears very neatly put together, btw. (Nice maps...).
Wonder how many hours work that was. :(

*has a quick read*

You could have sold it again, I s'pose... should give Ian a good few hours of reading, though (presuming he can keep a hold of it!). ;)

Yup, a pretty neat offer. 8)
...even if it was just a pile of paper getting in the way! :P

Not me, it would be put onto a shelf and been loved for eternity. :)

You may not have been around these boards long enough Ike, but I have "given" away free stuff on two occassions.  I don't mind - I like to see low value items find a home.  That was my original intent here . . . But subsequent interest made me realize I should be selling it and not giving it away for free.  I guess I had no idea that it would be so desirable.    :D

Suffice it say, I have opened up your package of freebies and stuck a few more items in it to help keep my karma from fading.  8)

Too funny.  Who knew it'd go THAT high.I'm glad, it means a unique item will go to a person willing to pay for it.

All items are SECURELY packaged and no items I send will ever arrive damaged, bent, broken or harmed in any way (unless the post office were to truly do something horrific - like run it over!)


This is from beyondthebreach's listing.  It is so true.  Opening my copy of Sinister Secrets of the Saltmarsh was like cracking open Ft Knox.  I was supremely impressed. :)

I have a pretty good handle on what things sell for, but I daresay I did not anticipate the collector desire for this kind of item. . .

Ummm. . . I think I will go out and buy an old typewriter and type some of my old modules and campaign settings. . . .   :)

Any of them accepted by TSR? ;)
(Just long enough ago too, IMO).

Would certainly have expected around $75-100 with minimal advertising on here before I saw those pics. $150 sounds about right.

Well good for you Paul, did you choke, or spit out your meal when you looked at the closing bid? :)

Ian,

Check out this link:

webdadi.com/WebMgmt/Content/TheHWay/Def ... efault.asp

This is the Scott Huelsman web site.  He has a link on the left entitled "The Wizard Reborn".  When you click on it you find that he has written an online fantasy novel.  

So . . .  I read the excerpt on the web page and then went back to the auction listing and read the summary to look for any similar names/references (I have already shipped you the actual manuscript).

And there is one similar connection . . . He refers to the "Age of Damnation" several times in the manuscript intro.  His web book summary ends with the "Age of Damnation".

I think this would be a good place to start to try to get some verification on the manuscript.

Good luck!
