Re: SALE: Gygax Fantasy Worlds Books & Upper Works

Just some friendly advice... If you have the GFW slipsleeve case, you're underselling. If the Upper Works is in the shrink, which not all are, you're very underselling. Thanks Serl... No slipcase... and Upper Works is not in shrink. Am I still underselling because I realize I might be but as long a...

Re: FUNDING THE FUN (Selling Gaming Goodness)

BUMP

While I haven't updated the list to illustrate all that is pending (yet) I've recently received inquiries that will hopefully see most of this lot sold (YAY). Not all. I'm preparing another round of items to be added between now and next weekend.

SALE: Gygax Fantasy Worlds Books & Upper Works

Ok folks, I'll be honest that I was on the fence with these items and I thought I'd post them here as we have some fans on these forums that would really appreciate what I'm offering. I have all seven volumes of the Gygax Fantasy Worlds Books which are as follows: The Canting Crew World Builder Livi...

Re: Black Box?

Thing is, Indegogo sort of sucks. I can't find the article I read breaking it down, but giant 2" foam dice ran on Indegogo and failed, then repeated on KS and hit like 1000% of goal with not a single difference in how they ran the campaigns (they say). it's 90% that KS has the market on crowdsourci...

Re: Black Box?

Anything from Arcana Creations in the pipeline to capitalize on the new C&C books? A very good question and the short answer is yes. Sadly, things have been clogged in that pipeline for MONTHS. It's no secret that I have planned no less than 2-3 releases this year and that, ideally, they should hav...

Very vague on the details but if it happens, it will be a Gencon release. I'd rather see the Trolls focus on fulfilling the two Kickstarters already in production than working on side projects. I am much more excited to see the fruits of the Three Sisters edited and in color. :) There is only so mu...

I'm positive that the fine folks at TLG will have this available to order after Gencon. Very much like the flip-bo...

This was an interesting thread. I was able to go to 'level 9' but the regular copies are going to someone else. As these are shaping up to be 'definitive copies', I really wanted these in leather.
