    Will you be doing anything special for the last print issue of Dragon or Dungeon magazines?
    Even though the zine was created by me, I have not been asked to do any such thing. The fact is that I am dubious about being able to offer anything polite and constructive.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Do you think that knowing about improv had any influence on RPGs and their development?
    Not really. Acting was a most minor consideration in the design and development of the D&D game.

    It would be a shame for them to not bring you on board in some capacity but, barring that, perhaps a letter of farewell could be sent. I would think they'd be hard-pressed not to include that in some fashion.

    Well Mark,

    While I agree in part, such a missive would likely be preceived as a sort of sour grapes, or as a slam against WotC, and it would be hard for me not the make it the latter.

    Cheerio,
    Gary

    The mentality demonstrated was not suiotable for a hobby game company. Sound familiar?
    Sadly, yes.

    I look longingly at Apple bringing back Steve Jobs and becoming "relevant" (and highly profitable) again with his ideas, passion, drive, and instant street cred, then I look at WOTC and say: what are you guys waiting for? Don't know who your chairman, or at least chairman emeritus, should have been? I guess they're just dumb as nails, like the previous owners.

    No Milton, but I did use a bit of Dante's Inferno is developing the denizens of the Nine Hells.

    Cheerio,

    Indeed, and that was something that I as a novice player really appreciated As I grew older and actually began reading Dante it always made me a bit nostalgic for the MM descriptions of devils.

    Along those lines, was there any reason for switching the ice-cold 9th circle of Dante's Inferno for the frozen (IIRC) 8th plane of the nine hells?

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

    Mere poetic license, as a frozen last layer did not strike me as appropriate for a S&S model of the hells.

    I admire your restraint in the matter.

    Although I seldom do, on occasion I manage to follow Thumper's (or was it FLower's?)advice: "Of you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."
