Tegel Manor still in the mailing envelope...
Plus I am still sorting out City Campaign maps from Thunderhold, etc. etc. etc.

Me, Me, What. One? Both?

Who remembers the Dragonbone? I have one of each model and the lights still light...


BTW I will sign or provide provenance for any of this stuff.

Ya I think Ebay is the way to go.  I think there are a few people who want a Dragonbone too :)  I still need Tegal Manor too.

Sorry, I plan to put all or most of this up this weekend. Better set your snipers...

After I post the photos to you guys, I'll entertain Silent Auction Offers; if somebody makes me an offer I can't refuse, who knows?

Don't worry, I'm not trying to jerk you around. I think my rep says that I don't play that game...

Then within hours I will put up what goes up.

I have an OLD ILLUMINATI game in the hard plastic box still shrinkwrapped. I can't even find a reference to this edition online. I'm looking to sell; any help?

PS I do appreciate all of the feedback...

Sheesh, I go away for a few days and miss all the excitement.  :lol:

Tim, you should consider offering to autograph any items you put on eBay;  it will help with the final values.  I wouldn't do it ahead of time, though, as some collectors don't seem to like autographs.  Some prefer some sort of "note of authenticity" instead.  Oh, and welcome aboard!

One or two of the old hardback's have my name in them already; you know, like ownership?

Sorry, I missed that bit.  :lol:  Those books will probably do quite well, if they're your personal copies.  I'd suggest you wait until after Saturday to auction anything, though.  :wink:

Yes, I supposed that. A funny thing: some of the questions came from The Acaeum gang because the idea was doing a 'collective' interview. Well, I really understand you... but I'm still really curious. What about splitting the interview in various parts, with you answering one part at time? mind you, I don't want to seem pushing you or whatever... if you don't want, no problem!

As I begin this, it is 12:19 AM, EST.

I have completed shooting all the things that you may want to see;

In 6 or 7 hours from now, I will revise/make new list and caption and ID each picture of whatever.

Anyone wishing the whole picture file with revised and annotated list can e-mail me direct. The pics are more than 12M, so I will compress with both WinZip and WinRar. If you only wnat a couple, I can attach to a reply.

The revised and annotated list will also be posted to the thread.

I have had some unbelievable offers for some of this stuff, and I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate all of your input and kind words. By way of saying thanks, you guys get a special offering shot before it gets to e-Bay.

I will  accept Blind Auction bids on single items or sets/boxes (set of books in box or all iterations of a module) until 7:30 PM EST, April 2nd.

I promise you that some of you contributors to this thread will get at least a few pieces. If the greed bug grabs me by my cranial nerves, and any given high is not as high as I have reason to think it may go at real acution, it will go to e-Bay. But if someone from this group makes a bid that makes me say WHOOO!, I am not consumed by that kind of greed to not make one or more of you guys very happy.

I will give descriptions as accurately as I can, and if you have questions you can ask for clarification or details.

Sounds good, Tim: looking forward to seeing the pics.

If you could clarify the silent auction rules for anyone interested, I suspect that would be appreciated (e.g. highest bid by closing time, full bid taken rather than underbidder plus bid increment, etc.).

Hopefully can get some of those debts cleared sooner, rather than later :)

=

([ed.] Rather than email all the pics to interested parties and/or have to handle individual requests, it might be possible to host them over here at The Acaeum on one of the user accounts.
Anyone? (Or Scott...?)
Just a thought :))

I'd love to let you have them all; I have pics of most but scans of a fiew, all JPG files.

However, you can get them zipped down pretty far...

I will use your grading system as opposed to my rather more primitive one to the best of my ability. If I err, it will more than likely be in your favor; I do not wish to skin anyone.

Any bids received prior to posting of the revised and annotated list are hereby dissolved; only those bids received after I give full disclosure will be binding. One minor disappointment already coming up for someone...

Highest bid received by 7:30, In my Inbox when I hit Send/Receive. is only one considered. No high bid guaranteed to win item in the event that I think I might do significantly better based on advice so many of you have been kind enough to share with me. No Second Chance Offers; it goes on e-Bay.

I will accept PayPal if you add 2%; I'll eat some of their charge, too. Money Orders (or bank transfers if you're into that sort of thing, or capable of it, LOL) are the other means of payment. If MO, I will give you ample time for it to get hereafter we make confirming contact. If it fails to arrive, 5 days after reasonable expectations of arrival, it goes on e-Bay.

I hope you all feel this is fair.

Tim:

If I recall correctly, you refereed a D & D tournament I was in at Origins 2 or 3.  It was a combination of Barrier Peaks and Metamorphosis Alpha.  I won a subscription to The Dragon (Issues 2-7).  I wish I'd kept more souvenirs from back then.  I bet you wish you had snagged a few extra things back in the day, given the prices people are paying now.  The dungeonmaster's packet from that Origins tournament would have some of these guys hyperventilating.

I am not planning to bid, but for the sake of UK collectors who are - am I correct in assuming that this is 12.30am GMT? (and therefore half past one tomorrow night as we are in BST)

:?:
