    Despite the wrong name, what's the matter with the dating? Sure, it was created in 1972, but was published in 1973.

    Wrong

    I wrote the initial draft in 1972, a revised and expanded one in 1973, and the game was published at the end of January 1974. All of that is a matter of record, and any serious researcher should know those facts.

    So why do you think Scott would get the credit? How big a part of the creation process was he?

    Actually, I don't think there IS a "Scott Gygax", unless Gary corrects me.

    Perhaps Scott is the Minime version of Gary? *enter Vincent Price suspense background music*

    OK, it was something like a pre-publication. I'm not an expert on the subject, but I think it was sold in the GenCon of 1973, wasn't it?



    EDIT: found it: http://www.acaeum.com/DDIndexes/SetPages/Original.html It is supposed to have been distributed at 1973 Eastercon, in very limited number.

    And the hours at which they're away from home, and whether they have security systems or not...
