    I quite like FTA, but I did't think this is the place to get into it. Rather like walking into an Apple store and extolling the virtues of a PC.

    My intent was solely to answer the question asked, not debate its value.

From what I've pieced together, it seems like a very...interesting game (Trail of displacer cloak rags and elven tears, Lol)
    I can take a stab at this if you would like. Late in Greyhawk way after Gary left the company, Rary who was at the time part of the Circle of Eight. He ended up betraying the circle and killing a number of it's meber who have since then been replaced.

    Of course there was never a Rary in the actual Circle of Eight as I created it

    Hi Gary!

    On the episode of Futurama, in which you guest starred, you would constantly role dice to decide what you would do next. My friend thought it was a great idea and for a month last year, he would role dice whenever making a decision (I personally don't know if the dice really were affecting his decision or if they were just for show). I was wondering if you ever role dice to make decisions in real life?

    No dice rolling, no coin flipping, no cutting of cards or casting runes

    That was just a plot device in the script to underscore the use of random event/encounter tables in the game. As I have noted, David X. Cohen was a DM back in the day.

    As a french-canadian, I do have to quote that. As many english people, if not more, wished to make peace with Hitler as french citizens resisted, under De Gaulle. In fact, Lord
    Halifax came very close of being PM of England, in which case he would have most likely made some sort of peace.

    Hmm. Not such a clever idea, perhaps. Read The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart.

    Jack Vance

    Gary, I guess that like me you will be saddened by the fact that Jack Vance is ill and no longer writing.

    I just wondered what you make of his more recent work. The Lyonesse trilogy, the Cadwal Chronicles, Nightlamp, Lurulu, etc. are very different from the work that went into the inspirtion of D&D, but I like them better than The Dying Earth, Eyes of the Overworld, Cugel's Saga, Rhialto the Marvellous, The Dragon Masters, The Last Castle and so forth.
