    I was very surprised (and pleased) to see an update!

    Thanks, Sep.

    I have to say, though, that I don't understand Saes's reasons for sealing the underworld. Suppose there are 100 million people in the world, and they all live for an average of 100 years.

    Then, on average, 1 million souls pass her gates every year. Now suppose Graz'zt invades, and all 100 million are killed in a year. Saes gorges on death. But next year- no souls come. None are left alive, and so none can die. No matter- she's still up by a net 99 million souls. The year after- still no souls. The year after that- nope. After 100 years she's where she would have been had there been no invasion. From that point on she is in a net famine of souls.

    It is really in her interest to let some out to live again- for unless there are living people, no one can die.

    ...and maybe that's the arguement they'll use to convince her?

    A Sep update is the perfect cure for several days' worth of ENWorld deprivation.

    Out-standing!

    It only surprised me up until around 1977, ... I had thought we were going to have a considerable audience of gamers and science fiction and fantasy fans. I thought easily with those we'd have 50,000 or more [buyers], but when people began to write me [with questions] about what fantasy books to read, and I saw the wide range of both younger and older people who were attracted to the game, I understood that it was reaching a deeper chord, something deep within us.

    Heh, when I saw the SH title, I wasn't sure if it referred to last year's May update, or was a new one. In any case, I'm glad it was the latter. Hope we don't have to wait until May '07!
