If you guys aren't members of the Facebook group "RPG Auctions" you should be!

Two very impressive items are being auctioned right now.  Peter Gaylord's copy (1st printing) of Palace of the Vampire Queen, and his copy of Blackmoor - The First Fantasy Campaign (Zeitgeist Games hardcover, d20 D&D 3.5 version) with a personal message from and signed by Dave Arneson.  Proceeds of the auctions will go to Peter's family.

From the Havards Blackmoor Blog; "Pete Gaylord played the Wizard of the Woods, a legendary character in the original Blackmoor Campaign that was organized by Dave Arneson in Minnesota in the early 1970s, a precursor to Dungeons & Dragons. In addition to being the first Wizard character in the game, he was the source of the super berry magic concept. His character was also known for keeping dragon pets (one named after Pete's cat) and being a friend of Pixies and other woodland creatures.  "Always quick to give advice and always A friend to those he played with." says friend and fellow gamer Kevin McColl. Gaming seems to have been a big part of Gaylord's life through his life. He took part in the 2009 memorial game held for Dave Arneson by Bob Meyer.  Friend's report that Gaylord was gaming until May 11th this year as part of David Wesely's group."

I finally managed to join the Facebook Group, but looks like both books have already been sold off.
