    Heh, Scott...

    Surely that placement was quite unofficial, for certainly the product is generic D20 and not one approved by WotC for use on the World of Greyhawk

    That said, I think it fits best in the Great Kingdom's eastern verge, there being a good deal of "ancient history" surrounding that place.

    Whatever suits the DM concerned is best, of course.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Better still...

    Actual warriors would strip the captured and dead foemen of armor so as to improve their own. The Vikings were well-armored thus. Hovever, it is logical that the "upgrading" would be as cmplete as possible, discarding lesser protection for greater. So mixed sorts of armor would be rather rare I should think, save for hill bandits and their ilk.

    FWIW,

    Hi Gary,

    How is the health? Will you be spry enough to grace us with your presence at the big Con (Gen Con) this year? I understand that you are supposed to keep travel limited, but I had to ask...

    Best wishes and good health,

    Aaron.

    Hi Aaron,

    Thanks, and I am feeling quite well, just lacking my former level of energy. the fact is that I am enjoying relaxing and reading a lot, but I do hope to be able to do more creatively in the future. that remains to be seen, as currently I can't manage more than a couple of hours of intense work before having to kick back and rest.

    I will not be at GenCon this year...maybe in 2006.

    I will be at the Lake Geneva Gaming Convention here at the end of this month, July 29th - 31st, and at the Canadian National Gaming Expo in Toronto the 26th - 29th August.

    That's it for this year.

    Cheerio,
    Gary

    Colonel,

    Good to hear. I only allow myself one abroad convention a year, so maybe we will see you in 2006. Till then, kick back, relax and when you can write more wonderful gaming material!
    I have been looking to meet this Gygax fellow in person for some 20 years now. He has the strangest last name and has written a very cool game. But apparently his vocabulary and good demeanor are legendary.

    BTW, have you seen the Hall of Many Panes? I manage a few in there....

    My dad's noted more than a few.

    His comments. "If this is an indication of the dudes sense of humor, he sounds like a cool dude to talk too."
