    Short answer: No.

    Cheers,

    Have you thought of doing your own production company? Its amazing what some Star Trek and Star Wars fans have been able to do with a digital video camera and a computer. You could create your own pilot shows to shop around.

    You mentioned Egyptology, and I must admit it is a fascinating subject. Still, D&D really had a strange effect of getting me interested in myriads of non-game subjects. I read books on Herbalism, Medicin, Zoology, History, Architechture, Craftmanship etc.. for the sole purpose of finding inspiration for D&D. This, In My Opinion, is something most anti-D&D people hardly ever consider. How D&D contains elements from so many different fields of study and that it actually can get people involved in some of these fields indirectly.

    The opposition against D&D was actually rather lacking here in Denmark, so I never discovered that there actually were people who were directly "against" it. Only my introduction unto the net made me realise that there were some demented protestors. This realisation only came 10 years after my introduction to the game, so it was a little late for me to take it into consideration about starting to play Anyways, how did the opposition influence you? I think, that had D&D been my creation and my brainchild, I might take opposition rather personally, but thats just my opinion

    Actually, no...

    That's because I have all I can manage with the trade I have now--agme design and writing there are many projects awaiting there, and too little time for them as it.

    Right you are about the RPG being a mind-broadening experience that encourages learning in many fields--that in addition to the imaginative, creative, and social qualities of the game--and all the while having fun, being entertained.

    As for opposition, I ignore it. They never buy any gaming products anyway, eh?

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Well I am not sure how much more work you would be able to get done with those interns LOL.
    Ken
    After I win the lottery I'll apply to be your intern okay?

    Depends on the definition of "work." (Former President Clinton would be proud of me for that!)

    Sure, either way about the intern matter, you winning the lottery or me

    Ciao,

    Hi John

    The LA game "Quick Start" pdf is all done except for final layout. Chris Clark is away at the GAMA show, so the final won't be ready for a few days. I'll announce the availability of the download here, I suppose, on a new thread, and give the URLs of the webssites that have it ready to go. Likely be a week or so.

    Cheers,
    Gary
