Not wanting to be too slack or anything but what's the deal with this seller. I mean they sometimes do have good stuff like at the moment they're selling the AD&D Fighting Wheel. But most of their items are like, for example, the normal version of S1 Tomb of Horrors or B2 and they say VERY RARE!!! - which is a load of old cobblers...

Hi Nev, I know the person who is the Eastern Treasure Chest!!. He is a great guy and great reseller. As to putting the words very rare on certain modules I suppose he is trying to attract bids on his auctions. Also many times when I speak to him he is very busy and lately has some personal issues arising so he cuts and pastes portions of his other auctions to save time. However the portion when he grades items, he writes it all out, no cut and pasting.  Many resellers use this tactic of putting very rare, etc. Look at dodac. He does the same thing.

I have current info.
He sucks ass, and was driven off eBay for fucking over his customers. His merchandise mostly sucks, and is always overestimated in condition. He has the intellect of a rabid dingo, and habitually overcharges for shipping, then ships the item(s) 1-3 months later, if he ships them at all, after much harassment. Other than that, he seems OK to me.
Hope that helps.

I got some nice rares off him last time for free. The guy was a real gem. I tried to pay the guy and he'd shut up shop. I even e-mailed him offering to pay but he seemed to want me to keep the stuff for free. A real sweet deal. Anyone remember Tales of the Ruby Dragon?It came from Jonb.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.
