An FYI – A Confirmation that Lord of the Manor Akalbeth Cassette’s NOT Being Delivered in Collectors Box

I decided to just do a quick piece on this, as I know a couple of my readers are wanting to know. Rather than contact those people individually, maybe this is helpful to others.

One of the questions some people have had, is that of the Lord of the Manor Reward regarding the Alkalabeth Cassette Tape. Would it be shipped separate or would it be in the Lord of the Manors, Physical Shroud of the Avatar’s Collector box?

With the boxes having shipped and no public word I or many have seen (not to say one hasn’t been made), on this topic, it has been a question collectors have wanted to know. Especially before BUYING sealed Lord of the Manor boxes second hand.

The problem? Not everyone wishes to open a sealed Lord of the Manor Collectors box!

A Lord of the manor has confirmed no Cassette in two opened appropriate Collector’s boxes, on the Shroud of the Avatar forums. Is concerned about how and when this item will be delivered.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Runestones and Maps


Something you won’t see up for sale by themselves very often is the Runestones from Ultima Underworld. I know this particularly well as I am missing just a single rune from my set and have been watching for just some misc runes for years!

This is a nice auction in that it has the stones, the bag, a couple of maps, and even comes with a cool box to hold it all! At the current minimum bid, the math works out to make this a reasonably fair purchase in my opinion. Sadly for me, I need one little rune out of all of that, so for me, it’s not a great buy unless I had the money to invest in some duplicates. For someone that needs the rest? Go for it!!

The Ankh box is cool too, even if not an official Ultima item!.

Auction Spotlight – Hellraiser


Wait, what? I know, not my typical spotlight for sure, but then this is not your typical item!

If you didn’t know I am a prop guy, now you do! Although I am poor, so most of my props are replicas.

This was just so cool though, I thought I would pass it on! The price tag is WAY outside of my budget!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – UV and UIII


Ok, these came across my screen and I felt they were spotlight worthy!

You have what appears to be a complete Ultima V, up for auction with very reasonable shipping and currently a high bid of $24.00. May go for a decent price, may not, but worth checking out if you want one.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – UII Map AND Disks



So if I was a map collector, what I would do is try to snag this at a good price, then I would re-eBay the disks by themselves. Full out Ultima or Big Box Collectors? Well, this is just nice all the way around.

An Ultima II map with disks, free shipping, and currently at $6.00 with one bid.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Sealed Ultima II *blinks* with an Extra U2 CD!


So this auction is happening right now, and what really makes it amazing it was listed low. How low? Current bid is $5.50 with very reasonable shipping.

It looks authentic to me but I am not a complete expert in that area. I know a few tricks on checking such things, but not all of them. So please do some research if you’re going to buy.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – U9 Map and Cards, U1, and a U3


This Ultima IX is far from being complete, given its only a map, the cards, and the books. On the flips side, $17.00 with free shipping for a map and cards is a great buy!

Hi bid on an Ultima III is currently only at $12.50. Makes me wish I had a little spare cash right now!

Even an Ultima I without coins is better then no Ultima I. An Ultima I without coins that has two days left and high bid is at $13.00? Sounds like one to pay attention to.

I could do without the expedited shipping the seller listed this with, but with the bid currently at under $3.00, odds are good this is going to be a good buy.
