Being a kid in Pittsburgh in the 70s, I just thought the Super Bowl was something the Steelers did every year.

<t>In Pittsburgh, so many bus drivers called off "sick" Sunday evening, that some of the routs had to be canceled. But I drove to work Sunday, so no impact there, and I was home early enough to watch the game. My Monday morning bus never showed up though, and my afternoon bus today was way-late beca...

Gary, do you think that a town like Yggsburgh would tolerate evil temples operating in the open? I know that in, ahhh, Dunfalcon there are evil temples and some evil priests that hold some high positions in local government.

That's good news.

Gord and Chert went on to Oerth-shattering, multi-novel spanning epic adventure, but this is short story pulp at its finest.

Speaking of that bible, I'm guessing the bands of elves and dwarves mentioned in Mouths of Madness are based on the guardians that taxed PC parties. I was happy to see them, as well as some of the other campaign all-stars you've mentioned.

As an impatient fan, I'd happily grab up the modules as they were completed, rather than waiting for boxed sets that could be many more months in the making.

I didn't realize I was ordering one of the numbered & autographed copies, so it was a nice surprise when it turned up that way.

BTW, don't take my previous post about the Caves of Chaos similarities as a bad thing. I think this is an excellent adventure.

It appears that he was on camera when the attack occured. He came up over a ray buried in the sand, and it threw its tail up in self defense and got him in the chest. I was thinking he might have drowned as the result of the attack, but I read that he probably died instantly.

I'd prefer the boxed set. In my opinion, the smaller booklets keep things more manageable in play.
