That’s brilliant, oh my goodness I can’t even imagine the range of emotions that announcement produced. The sheer joy from real fans who couldn’t buy in time compared to the rage from the scalpers who prevented the fans from buying in time is just… beautiful That made me so VERY happy. Converge Official Merchandise – Jane Doe Premium T-Shirt GW actually had a lot of issues with scalpers for Hardback copies of the End Times series – the second, third and fourth books were almost impossible to get ahold of due to their limited release. Scalpers all over the place, and stores also got very limited amounts in stock.

Amusingly the fifth one stayed on shelves forever thanks to the whole End Times story resolution fiasco. Someone should write that up here. I would but… nobody cares about Fantasy except the three 50 year olds whose dads gave them upper management jobs straight out of high school and can afford to play that shit.My favorite: Converge Official Merchandise – Jane Doe Premium T-Shirt a few years back, a website I’ve bought some whisky from got in a few cases of a super-rare Japanese whisky, that retails at ~$200 a bottle but routinely sells on the secondary market for thousands of dollars.

They allocated the bottles via a lottery (basically you entered a drawing for free, and if you won you had the chance to buy the bottle at retail price), and to ensure that the whisky would go to, as they put it, “people who actually want to drink it”, they made one of the conditions of the lottery that the winning bottles would have “I, [name], Converge Official Merchandise – Jane Doe Premium T-Shirt hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.” written on the label in Sharpie, thus tanking the resale value.
