Day 21. First time you sold some of your D&D books—for whatever reason.

Just before I got married. 1999 or 2000. All to a friend that still has them (from what I can tell on a recent picture of his game wall).

I've blogged about some of this before, but at the time I kept my Shadowrun and WFRP collections. Sometime in 2001 or 2002 I sold my Shadowrun collection on eBay for $400 including the original Universal Brotherhood sourcebook. One does not forget the thinly veiled references to Scientology in that sourcebook, right down to the erupting volcano on the cover—Dianetics anyone?

The original sold collection included all my Twilight:2000 material, AD&D hardcovers and modules, TMNT&OS, as well as quite a bit of random pieces including I think a Squad Leader box and Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader.

I think I'll cry for the rest of the day now.
