If you truly wanted to help then you would sell them HERE for the same price to people like myself who barely missed the signups. Not on ebay.

You should be ashamed for scalping something so precious a unique as this was a community supported project, not an official one.

Enjoy your undeserved profit money while myself, multiple friends of mine, and many many others wish we could own a copy

Not like I have a thousand copies for everyone, anyone who buys it someone else is going to miss out.

But you bought with the purpose of NOT keeping it and making money off a limited run FAN BASED COMMUNITY PROJECT. This isnt limited because of big companies being stupid, you are CHOOSING to hurt the fandom and be selfish and heartless to others by doing this.

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED

He also probably waited patiently and saved up for this. Honestly there would be less books in circulation if he hadn't purchased them. And someone who spent extra for one of these is more likely to spread the word of the fandom because of how invested they are. We are a fandom of friendship and acceptance. Please don't put someone down who is willing to go out of their way to purchase more books and wait for them. Who are we to judge if me wants to get something extra for his patience. And Brian... Thank you for doing your part. The books were probably that much cheeper because of you.

>>bought 5 books
>>1 is my own
>>3 going to friends locally at no charge
>>1 went to my friend in South Africa

We all need to be like blackjack
:bwalk: :gwalk:
Do better and stop insulting the person for trying to make a buck, for all you know they are trying to gather funds to move out of an abusive situation. Or go to their first convention so they can actually meet their internet friends.

Don't judge on the choices another makes for judgement is not ours to pass

I do have personal reasons for my decision but I am not comfortable bringing them up. And I am probably going to list more bids starting at 60 in the future so you may be able to get lucky.

Talt and Indiana thanks for defending me. I mean I did get close to 50 books but idk how much I would've brought the prices down, I thought of that before, but um, 2nd Edition sold I think 1200 so if I got 50 for example that's like 4% Which would be at the most um like $1.25 off of the books for everyone else lol. So Lets just round it down to $1, $1,200 I saved ponies I guess(assuming similar sales). Unless of course um, other factors.

I am on page 552, but started in around 300 or so because I was already in the middle of rereading. Laying down n reading is nicer but then my posture gets bothered more easily.

Now page 666, and no not even joking lol. But now I realize, man, isn't it silly to have a warning for chapter 20.5, but they have plenty of brutal moments and mentions of rape elsewhere and no warning for that, kinda silly to me lol.
