    Hey, Gary, Why no avatar?
    DamnedChior:

    "If I was a 20th level Paladin I'd decide that for the good of the people, they must be told how to live, have their lives scheduled, and be forever watched by Golems created by the party's Wizard. The Rogue would set up the secret police, and the Fighter the army to crush all opposition that might threaten safety or security.

    The Bard, tragically, would have to be executed for spreading anti-peace propaganda."

    In Lejendary Adventure game terms I'd give him the Soldier Order Abilities set:
    Weapons (64 score), Planning (52 score), Ranging (40 score), Physique (30 score)--with a fifth ability of Pretense at c. 20 score. As he is aged and overweight I'd give him stats of Health 50, Precision 50, and Speed 10.

    Cheers,

    Interesting take, Gary. I imagine that were it not for his age, Sir John might do fairly well across the board, but not exceptionally in any particular area, save that of wit, perhaps. I would, however, throw in a few levels of thief considering what he gets Hal into. You know, I think a reread of Henry IV is in order...

    Take care,

    As for the Urd I can't say, as it isn't a creation of mine and I don't have any idea who created it.
    OK, thanks.
    don't quote me on that.

    I will do that reluctantly...and if, ond only if, it is a book with a stamped, self-addressed envelope included in the package. I have no interest in finding mailing envelopes and going to the post office and purchasing postage. Signing and putting it out in my mailbox for the postman to pick up is fine.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Hey Gary I just recieved the Lejendary Rules For All Players. Great book but terrible artwork IMHO. Did you have anything to do with the production of this book ( artwise ) ? Some of the art is of dubious sources ( like Devarre Clarce ). I like a few of the illus. but ( with all respect ) , some of it is pretty bad.

    Right!

    Expecting the company you write for the request of a favor to pay for postage is going too far

    Cheers,

    Editing and layout are not in my purview in reagrds the publication of the LA game books.

    Funny thing about art is that tastes vary. Not a few persons have admired the illustrations. I am rather indifferent to them, although I do like two of the core rules books covers quite well.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    As to Falstaff's thievery, that's why I put in Pretense Ability. He talked a good game but didn't really deliver.
