Alright, I know I'm pushing a lot of stuff to sell lately, and it's Christmas time so you are being bombarded. My wife had me clean up the home office and I'm using the classic "Keep, Sell, Toss" method. So, lots of great old gaming stuff going up on ebay. A great present for that gamer in your life! (or yourself)
I'm selling my original white box set and all the expansion books for it. Chainmail through Swords & Spells. They are all in very good condition, with Chainmail having the most wear because it's been played a lot, it's still pretty good.

I'm selling my near mint copy of the DUNE ROLEPLAYING GAME. Yes, the one and only super rare hard to find official Dune RPG.
With the new Dune movie well into production I pulled this book out of storage to reread it. It is a really well done book for it's day. Gorgeous art and layout. Well written. The ICON system by Last Unicorn Games was well designed. My gaming group played a lot of their Star Trek RPG, but we never got a Dune game going. So I only got to read it and imagine how fun it would be to play.
It is a great relic for any Dune fan, and rarely comes up for auction. If you are interested check it out:
It sold for US $162.50

Some blogs I've been reading this week. These come via a dive into J. Eric Holmes epic Blue Book Basic D&D the first and original "retro-clone". This week's adventure started with watching Capt. Corajus' RPG Retro Review of Tower of Zenopus, which led me to hunting down map revisions of the Tower and wandered across several excellent blogs. These aren't all necessarily focused on Holmes' Basic, they just happened to be what I stumbled across.
And of course the boss daddy of Holmes' Basic:

Once she uncovered corruption in Mintal as they were manufacturing weapons for nefarious groups around the world, she left to do her own private research.
