Quick updates for those playing along at home!

Hey gang -- the first day of eBay Extravaganza 2007 is coming up to the end of their auctions, and it's looking cool! The current hot item remains Amber Diceless Roleplaying, which as of this writing has just under eight hours of bidding left. We're also way above the Buy it Now price on it, which gives me a certain amount of relief that it didn't go immediately. Clearly, the hunger for Amber is pronounced and significant. Zelazny would be proud.

Also coming up due today, at a lot more reasonable prices, we have the Spycraft d20 system, the Star Trek Roleplaying Game Narrator's Guide, the Star Trek Roleplaying Game Player's Guide, and the Dragonstar d20 Starfarer's Handbook. As of this typing, all four are under fifteen bucks so if you have any inclination, this would be the time! This would be... the time.

I'm debating putting more stuff up. Frankly, this has been amazingly successful -- enough that it's got me thinking about going from 'okay' to 'ahead.' And I generally feel good about doing things like eBay -- I mean, in the end, these are actual products worth something. I don't feel like I'm just out there with hat in hand. (Though folks who did donate during the last few days are astoundingly cool, and I will never think otherwise.) I don't want to cut my nose off to spite my face, but there's a positive side to this kind of housecleaning too.

One game I considered putting up on the block was Sorcerer. This is kind of the poster child of the independent games movement, and one of the first to gain popularity and success outside of the distribution channels of the major labels. It's not going up, in the end, because I reread part of it before putting it up on eBay, and I realized A) it's staggeringly cool and B) I really want to run or play it. So, it gets spared under the "can actually see self playing this game sometime soon" clause. Which, as cool as Dragonstar is, I can't say the same for. On the other hand, I can see myself writing about Sorcerer more completely soon. So, you know, there we are.

If I put up more auction stuff, I'll let you know here. It won't be another Sidewinder or sketch -- best to save those for the right circumstances -- but they might be cool for some folks out there and that's a nice enough thing.

So! Bid early, bid often, be well, have fun!

I didn't know Amber was going for so much. I picked up a copy of of it a couple of years ago for $10.

I wonder of bidding is low for Star Wars because a new version is coming out in a month or two.

Spycraft is a great game and has lots of pieces to steal, including better gun feats and very sweet chase rules.
