    Just kidding! Seriously, just kidding. No really, I mean it, it was only a joke, no such book will come to light.

    Anyone care to step up and take Bourgine's place as my co-author?

    If it counts for anything, I did just get a message from a Gord fan saying this:



    "Elminster vs. Gord. How could that possibly go wrong?

    Cmonyou dont think Gord vs. early-career-Conan wouldnt work better?"

    PS As long as we're talking fiction, I'll throw in a recommendation for William Gibson's All Tomorrow's Parties.

    Go to the page where it lists all the forums. Scroll way, way down. It should be the second-to-last forum listed.

    Wow. Reading page 3's Gary responses from his response of my Canadian Maple Leaf post to Gord. I haven't been this surprise about AD&D's roots since Gary said he wasn't a LotR fan. And not so much D&D is based on LotR.

    I didn't realize D&D didn't base itself on Christian beliefs. Hindu, huh? Never would of guessed that. I still don't understand this Theosophy one. But Solars are the sun, and planetars are the planet. This new view of them makes them seem more like cosmic elementals than angels (reminds me of the show Andromeda). Very spiritual.

    You know Gary. Had you used "Paradise Lost" as inspiration. I bet a neat D&D cosmology , different then the current one, there could have been. I just HATE what 2e's Planescape did to it. I was thinking of buying the new Demonweb Pit adventure till I learned it used 2e's cosmology.

    Gary, now that Dungeon and Dragon magazines are ceasing printed publications, I was thinking back on some things I thought that you had written before. Was it true that the magazines were under threat of the axe during the early 80s also?
