Mike trades me D&D books for the 80's buttrock guitar

Guy Waving

It is with great pleasure that I announce I will officially trade the black and red butt-rock guitar for the set of first edition Dungeons and Dragons books.

Now I've never played Dungeons and Dragons myself, but that's not to say I don't have enough nerd in me to want to. I've played Magic the Gathering though where similar phrases I'm sure can be heard:

*I'll attack you with my Air Elemental for 4 points.

*NO! You can't do that! The Crumble I played is an instant and resolves before anything else. You don't have a chance to try and save your artifact.

*Oh my God, there's a girl here! When did that start happening?

Yes, I have even been to Magic the Gathering tournaments. Yes, yes I have. And honestly. I was always the only girl there. It changed me. Made me who I am today.

Also, I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone who sent me trades this week: GOOD JOB! I got some of the most interesting stories! This is what I pictured Barter Sauce being - not just a place where you can trade stuff that your cat peed on -- but also a place that encourages artistic expression. And I say, Hell Yeah. We're getting there.

The D&D First edition books include: Dungeon Master's Guide,the Player's Handbook, the Monster Manual AND, special bonus, a rather ratty copy of Unearthed Arcana.
