    BTW, it's Lejendary Adventure.
    Heh, and how did I do?

    Of course it is a hell of a lot more that pushing the LA game system, amigo. The actual creative effort involved is vastly easier for me when I am thinking in and using the LA system

    If you dislike d20, or find it too constraining to write for, why not simply write whatever you'd like, and let somone else figure out how it works in d20? Sort of like how the Necropolis d20 conversion was done, but with new material.

    As I am usually stuck being the GM, I long to play a character--or avatar. If I could manage both, I'd spend about half the time with each activity.

    Yes, I have suffered from GM burnout. That's why it's great to play a character now and then as it refreshes and gives the opposite perspective in regards adventuring.

    Actually, I am given to understand that the EPIC 3E book has come pretty close to nailing Mordie's level. I haven't seen it, so I can't comment further. As I do still play that PC now and again, I won't reveal anything else.

    Oh yeah - so now what are you gonna talk about in the chat? You've answered everything!

    Seriously, though - what would you like to discuss in the chat?

    Shhhh!

    I'm not supposed to be talking about this until the publisher makes an official news release...

    The work is going forward, but art delays have causeed a delay in making a public announcement of the release of the series. It had been planned to announce around this time, but I suspect there will be nothing "official" until near the end of the year.

    i can say that all the work I have seen so far is really excellent, some even "breathtaking," and that I am champing at the bit for the release!

    Ciuao,

    I think the crew at Necromancer are splendid fellows, and I really enjoy working with them--or just hanging out They did a great job with NECROPOLIS too, so in regards to their creative work I can only give lauds. I am considering a sequel to NECROPOLIS, but that depends on me finding some maps and notes--that might be lost. It will be some months time before I know.

    How right you are!

    When I was writing the AD&D core material, some of my fellows in the Chicagoland area put considerable pressure on me to include psionics in the system. Sadly, I caved in to please them. If I had not been so deeply immersed in the whole, trying to get it finished on schedule, I'd have doon a far better job with the psychic-power area, I believe. It would have been far better if I'd waited and done the material when concentrating solely on that aspect of play.

    I can't say, because the matter is now for WotC to decide, eh?

    What's your guess as to this?

    What do you think about Dave Arneson's re-entry into RPG publishing, especially the "For too long the game industry has been mired in mediocrity, Blackmoor will burn a new path in creativity and ingenuity as it did when it served as the origin of role playing games" quotation?

    Cheers!
    RPGs have a bright future, both inb paper and especially electronically, the mnore so as AI improves, and most home computers are equipped with audio and video capacities.

    As for Dave Arneson's re-entry, I wish him the best of luck, The hype involved in this is not to be confused with actual conditions, of course. Most new products have more than a touch of puffery in their promotion, no?

    One last thing; if you get the opportunity try and slip the 8th installment in there.
