    Heh, that reminds me!

    Somewhere I have the original painting for the old "Gateway to Adventure" ad that TSR ran back back around 1979 and 1980.
    Now that is likely to bring a fair bit if offered for auction Of course I don't care to part with it, I add hastily!

    No, but I think I have a video tape or two of some early TSR commercials. I'll see if Dave Dimery--who conceived "Morley the Wizard" as TSR's spokesman back then--can locate a copy of that. Dave is an old friend and headed up advertising when TSR did its best stuff IMO.

    Cheers,

    If you seriously believe offering paper plates attributed to me is in any way something other than grotesque in my mind, I have a fine bridge for you--cheap

    Heh,

    That's an old show biz quote that I happen to agree with. It has nothing to do with ego, but rather with publicity. "There is no such thing as bad publicity," eh?

    Gary, given your apparent interest in Egyptology (based on your epic adventure "Necropolis"), I was wondering if you'd gotten a chance to see the recent "Mummy" movies - "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns"? I love these films, for their breezy nature and old-fashioned derring-do - plus, there is something very reminiscent of a good D&D session about them.

    Howdy Colonel

    I've loved Egyptology since I was about five years old and my father took me to see the large exhibit in the Field Museum in Chigaco. Next to the Lincoln Park Zoo, that was my favorite Sunday outing. I have not really pursued Egyptology other than as a dilitant, but I have a fairly large collection of reference books on Ancient Egypt.most of Budge's old works amongst them, as well as some issues of KMT magazine...

    Indeed, I did see the "Mummy" movies, includng the original Boris Karloff ones thus I have both many tanna leaves handy as well as a cat. those flesh-eating (as opposed to dung-eating)scarab beetles in the new flicks are absolutely horrible. A swarm of those could take out most D&D parties in a trice, I fear.

    Speaking of films that recall D&D sessions, "The Deep," is in my estimation a great one for a modern equivalent of same.

    Cheers,
    Gary
