Or rather.... a gaming triple treat! :) I have seen more gaming in the past 24 hours than I have seen in a long time -- with the exception of maybe my GenCon experience last year of course. That said, aside from the two las...

SOLD!

You like Dungeon Crawl Classics? You like that first edition experience? Well, here is an offer which gives you both!

Today, I offer up a bundle of 5 DCC modules for 1st Edition play produced by Goodman Games. The first of these were released exclusively as limited GenCon releases which proved EXTREMELY popular and collectible.

They are in no particular order:

The Iron Crypt of the Heretics
Saga of the Witch Queen
Saga of the Rat King
Talons of the Horned King
The Golden Auroch / Tower of the Black Pearl (flip book)

Please not that this is being sold as a lot (and I'm not looking to split it up)

Condition are all like new and note that the 'Saga of the Rat King' is the Noble Knight Games release. Again, these are the 1st edition modules and not 3.x edition modules of the adventures of the same name. Please see pictures to get a better idea.

That said, these ship from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

I'm selling this lot for for $125 USD (Paypal Only)

At the start of this year, I wrote about the relatively slow start of the year. Realistically, the past few years have been slow as far as my writing, projects, and even gaming was concerned. I've managed to keep things goi...

Up next for sale, an Amazing Bundle of Adventures!

Produced by Troll Lord Games (best known for their Castles & Crusades RPG), is Amazing Adventures which is completely compatible to C&C providing a gaming system for Pulp adventures of all sorts -- regardless of your pulp preferences.

The bundle includes the following:

Amazing Adventures Core Rulebook
Amazing Adventures Player's Guide
Player Character Record Sheets
Rise of the Red God Adventure

It should be pointed out that the Player's Guide replicates information for character creation to facilitate that process when you have multiple players that need to generate a character at the same time.

These ship from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

I'm selling this for for $35 USD (Paypal Only)

It's been a while since my last sale but it's that time of year again where I try and streamline my gaming collection!

Today, I offer up a bundle of 15 Role Aids adventure modules. I don't think Role Aids will need any introductions but as material compatible to AD&D, they are dear to many gamers' hearts.

They are, in no particular order:

Shadows of Evil
Swordthrust
Evil Ruins
Shipwrecker
Deadly Power
Question of Gravity
Wizard's Betrayal (Fez V)
Ice Elves
Beneath Two Suns
Lich Lords
Throne of Evil
Elven Banner
Clockwork Mage
Crystal Barrier
War of Darkness

Please not that this is being sold as a lot (and I'm not looking to split it up)

Condition of these... some of like new (crisp, clean) and others are clearly used but in very good condition. Please see pictures to get a better idea.

That said, these ship from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

I'm selling this lot for for $115 USD (Paypal Only)
