I wasn't going to mention this on here. It seemed cheap somehow. But it's now gained the sort of novelty value worthy of a mention.
I've put some very rare freebie Baldur's Gate II paraphernalia onto eBay, to see if it can go to a home that will love it in the manner only appropriate for obscure specialist novelty items. That I may profit from this endevour is purely one of those strange acts of providence with which I cannot hope to argue.
A Baldur's Gate II Premium Golden Ale and Tankard
The reason I mention it: The lovely Jon Hicks (which reminds me, I should probably have mentioned, I'm soon to become Jonty's housemate - more soon) sent word of the auction to a website called Blue's News, which has linked to it as part of its "Auctions of the Day" section.
In the last four hours, the auction has received 968 hits. NINE HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT. And four bids.
In conclusion, readers of Blue's News are cheapskates and should learn to recognise a good, if potentially poisonous, bargain when they see one. The fools.
