    Actually, the pit fiends should have more than that pittance Use I rather than J, or else make up some special array that suits you. However, unless in their lair, these sweethearts don't carry much in the way of treasure, save for useful attack and defence items.

    Oh, sure. And I'm sure if a Pit Fiend were encountered outside their lair that Wand of Fire he possesses will be used till its last charge is spent before the guy even uses his own powers, let alone melee with a party

    "Was that ever news?" the Gray Mouser retorted.

    gary,

    did the quickling and obliviax appear anywhere before the MM2 or was that their debut?
    don't quote me on that.

    the cruel Dm might make each of the "gems" a large piece of lapis lazuli, malachite, or jade. The weight of such "gems" would be a base 100 pounds, moving upwards is the value increased.

    Of course explaining how the pit fiend carted them arouns would be a bit dodgy...

    Oh, sure. And I'm sure if a Pit Fiend were encountered outside their lair that Wand of Fire he possesses will be used till its last charge is spent before the guy even uses his own powers, let alone melee with a party

    Just so!

    Cheers,

    As far as I can recall, both of those critters made their first appearance in MM2. Shick had the concept for the quickling, and blamed if I can remamber anything about the obliviax

    Hi Gary---

    An ENWorld member was asking for some suggestions about expanding G1 Steading of the Hill Giant Chief in a thread @ http://www.enworld.org/showthread.php?t=170490 and while looking over the maps last night, I wondered if you had re-used any of your old dungeon levels when creating maps for publication (similar to using Rob's El Raja Key level for the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth)?

    edit: FYI, "Obliviax Moss" appeared as part of the Monster Cards before the MM2 was published

    Gary, I don't recall this ever being asked (it may have been and I missed it), but how did the stinky reptilian creatures known in D&D as troglodytes come by that name? The word generally is used in reference to what are also known as cave men. I was just curious about the genesis of the D&D critter that has the name.

    Didn't the memory moss first show up in the monster cards TSR did for AD&D? Yes. Yes, it did.

    The quickling was all MM2, though.

    Well, at least memory moss doesn't grow south on you...
