I've been advised that this item I've listed is actually the Australian reprint, not the US version.  I don't doubt my informant, but like to have this sort of info backed up by other well informed forum members.

Congratulations Mike.  Interesting coloured sheet that it came with.  Assumed that it was shrinkwrapped as a cover to the rulebook.  Would be good to see a better scan when it arrives.

Heh, heh. Congrats, too, Robert. :)


(So that's $75 for the extra sheet, John? ;))

Sum of the parts and all that :wink:

And wanted to compare that sheet to the one I have from the Oz GD pack.

Plus mine is stained on the rear cover.  :(

Yes, I know, John... :?

Was still amused that we'd discussed this before the latest auction appeared and then to have that turn out pretty much on plan. (Erm, sorry Deimos... :o)

I do doubt many people would bid high on that, though, whilst it's still sat in the footnotes rather than on the main listing with a "5" rating.
Like most of the UK/Oz "4"s and "5"s it'll probably just die a natural death where it is (just that the UK items did sooner, since they were somewhat more plentiful).

My 02c, fwiw, anyhow.

You folks never cease to amaze me; I thought I was going high there. ;)

Yowza!  8O

Is that a record for a "Blue" basic book of any stripe?

That extra sheet *is* interesting...

Thanks! I will try and get a scan off to you when it arrives. I set up my snipe when it was first posted. I knew I would miss the end due to moving.
Just got internet access back today, without my email account  :evil:  Hopefully that will get fixed tomorrow.

I need to get a few pictures of the collection all boxed and stacked post move before it hits the shelves  8O

Mike

Had the opportunity to buy it on a 2nd chance offer due to your house move :twisted: .  But I asked the seller to give you a few more days :D .

Tried to email.  But it got bounced.

I think Johns going for a bit of good D&D karma - perhaps now is a good time to ask if that seller has a BIN in mind John! :lol:
