Last Day to Bid on Lord of the Rings Online Collector’s Edition! Auction Benefiits Science Club for Girls, Technology Underwriting Greater Good

11/16/09Follow @wroush

It’s day 6 of our 7-day auction to raise funds for two of our favorite causes, Science Club for Girls and Technology Underwriting Greater Good. So hurry to eBay, because as of this writing you’ve only got about 20 hours left to bid on the amazing Lord of the Rings Online Collector’s Edition boxed set, autographed by the game’s developers at Westwood, MA-based Turbine.

I explained the whole back story to the auction last week. In a nutshell, Turbine gave Xconomy the autographed set back in July as a memento of our visit, and we decided (with Turbine’s blessing) to auction it off and donate the proceeds.

Lord of the Rings Online is Turbine’s award-winning massively multiplayer game world based on the famous J.R.R. Tolkien novels. The boxed set includes two Windows program discs, a Music & Art Collection bound volume including “The Music of Mines of Moria” soundtrack CD, a premium cloth map of the game world, a Middle Earth poster, the Collector’s Edition Starter Guide manual, a product key and three free 14-day buddy keys, a quick reference card, and—perhaps coolest of all—a gold-plated replica of the One Ring (evil powers not included).

Bid now—click here to visit the auction page. To whet your appetite, here are a few pictures of the set and its contents:
