    Hello,

    Let me start off by saying it is cool to see that you actually spend time anwsering peoples questions.

    Now on to my question. I have researched about D&D for a while, a read much about how it got started and evoled into what it is. I heard it all started from two pages of rules for minitures and I was wondering if you still had them and what they were?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas,
    DemLep

    Hey there, Gary! Happy Holidays!

    What traditions do you have this time of year? Are there any gifts you hoping on getting?

    And whenever your calendar begins, Happy Gregorian New Year to you!

    You'd better copyright that before Wal-Mart steals it for their ads!

    Seriously, it's nice, so many happy returns of the . . . general time of year!

    Christmasy thoughts of plastic dinosaurs past . . .

    Hmm, the owl bear looks like the plastic giant sloth I had, standing up in a sort of hugging position.

    Thinking rust monster + plastic dinosaur makes me think of the one that was like a turtle, with a club for a tail. But I doubt I'm right on that one.

    I'd be amazed if you can remember the specifics of all that!

    You're used to being blamed. I just had lunch with an old friend who was telling me when he was growing up and wanted to do D&D, he told his parents it was a storytelling and imagination game, about fighting evil, and they said, "You're sure it's not that evil devil game?" He said it wasn't, so they got it.

    I wonder if the stegasaurus is in the MM? I'll have to go look. I'm sure there's no illustration of it, because that I'd remember.
