    Thanks, Gary. As for empowering the game referees, what were you thinking? Rules lawyers run the show today. Just like real lawyers run the real world.

    Happy Easter all!

    Gary,

    I was wondering, did you ever run or play in any of the classic 1e modules, apart from the ones you wrote yourself? If so, do you have any particular favourites? Any that you weren't partial to (I've heard you weren't a big fan of Dragonlance)?

    Shortly, we should continue the Gary Q&A in this new, less cumbersome thread:

    do we need two of these threads at once?
    don't quote me on that.

    Bunny Hop

    Gary,

    It must be my week to spy things about Lake Geneva.

    I was checking the Weather Channel last night for this week's forecast. They had a segment on about the Lake Geneva Bunny Hop. Were you in that long line of Easter bunnies?

    We did indeed have a blessed Easter, thanks

    Cheers,

    Ah, you know what? It's my fault. I just assumed (and you know what happens when we do that, eh?) that Part VIII gets continued to Part IX if the former reaches 10 or more pages. I suppose I could have jumped the gun on that one. Just trying to be efficient. Sorry for the confusion everyone.

    Tell you what, we'll go ahead, close this thread, and move it to our Archive. The new thread is here:

    http://www.enworld.org/showthread.php?t=125997

    But for the record, threads are technically no longer limited to 10 pages, that was a courtesy for server response time from a while back.

    Since the thread's already started, we'll leave this one as current, but technically a thread doesn't have to stop at ten pages any more - it was a courtesy for server response time left over from about three years ago.
