    My wife created a metal just like that but we never had a name for it. So I just want to use it if possible and I/we actually get our adventure published. Its on page 107, Xagium. Plus it appears to be a variant of your name, at least when pronounced.

    If it isn't OGL can I have your permission to use it in my module submissions? If I can, who do I contact to get legal proof of your permission?

    I've already said it, so I'll just say I hope your birthday was a very pleasant one with a great game, or five, having been played today.
    Heh,

    What isn't OGL in the book is copyright of Trigee Enterprises Company, All rights reserved, as I believe is said in the book

    Xagium is a deravitive of my surname, crtainly. If you will email me I am pretty sure that Trigee won't object to the use of the name for a metal in something you publish...aslong as the copyright doesn't go so another game designer/publisher.

    In point of fact, humans are prone to excess with anything that they especially enjoy

    So that recounting of the story, and the group interaction, are factors which are entirely missing from Robin Laws' theory.

    Thanks for the insight. Sorry about the post length.
    Indeed, the shared experience, its recounting within the group and to other gamers, are very important parts of the overall enjoyment of the RPG, its rewards. Notice that there will be lively discussion of an adventure module between disparate individuals, for they are also sharing a gaming experience,from differing perspectives,of course, as they played with different GMs and players with different PCs.

    No need to apologise aout the length of your post. You had something on your mind you wished to note for others

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Wikipedia for "Irish Brigade" doesn't mention any darn Rebel Irish Brigade, but it does mention them fighting a Reb regiment that was mostly Irish at Fredericksburg, where Lee gave them the name the Fighting 69th. That's totally different.

    "The Irish Brigade was an infantry brigade that served in the American Civil War, consisting predominantly of Irish immigrants. The designation of the first regiment in the brigade, the 69th New York Infantry, or the "Fighting 69th", continued in later wars. They were known in part for their famous warcry, the "faugh a ballagh", which is an old Gaelic phrase meaning "clear the way".

    They were in every Army of the Potomac battle I can name, earning distinction at First Bull Run, Antietam (Bloody Lane), and Gettysburg (the Wheatfield).

    And you gotta like this, consider how little the US military seems to respect its own history:
    "Since 1947, the Fighting 69th has been a unit of the New York National Guard. The first members of the Irish Brigade to die in combat since World War II were killed on November 29, 2004, near Baghdad, Iraq. They currently have responsibility for guarding Route Irish."

    All I wonder is why a school in Indiana named its teams after a New York regiment.

    Good morning, Mr. Gygax. My question for you is a bit weird, but you are the only person I can think of that might have the answer.

    I am consulting the first few issues of Dragon magazine, looking for cool rules I could steal for my OD&D game, and I can't help noticing that some of the issues contain fiction by Fritz Leiber, and articles from M.A.R. Barker... this surprises my to no ends.
    Given the fame of the two in fantasy circles (especially for Mr. Leiber), I would have thought that a niche magazine like Dragon, published by a relatively small company like TSR simply couldn't afford to pay for these articles and stories.

    my question is: how did you do it?
    maybe TSR wasn't so small after all, or maybe I have a wrong idea of the inapproachability of relatively famous writers? or maybe there is some inside story that you might want to share with us?

    thanks a lot!
    (unless otherwise specified, the above post does not reflect my personal opinion, but a universal law of the universe. if you happen to disagree, you are welcomed to move to the next dimension. faithfully, spell)
