Nope.  (You'll need a copy of Chainmail to get the answer, I believe).

Correct.  Chainmail, pg. 35, last line of the Dragons section:
"Finally, the Purple, or Mottled, Dragon is a rare, fightless [sp] worm with a venomous sting in its tail."

Purple worms with the huge hit dice, Brazilian antecedents and the magic flying stones in their heads to fight with the witches?

Yep.

Okay, not really a trivia question, but this might be the best place to post it.  

I just watched Three Days of the Condor again, and noticed that in one of Max Von Sydow's scenes he's shown sitting in his motel room painting miniatures.  Does anyone know what the mini he's holding is?  It almost looked like a werewolf.

Glad you like it, Stephen. I seem to come up with one creature every 3 months or so.

Ok, thought of another one.  (I don't remember the answer, though, so this one is "open book" -- you'll have to look it up and let me know!)

Which NPC character had a pet wombat-like creature?

Definitely someone in the Rogue's gallery...is it Erac's cousin?

I remember the picture, they are sitting down and the wobat has his arms crossed. Head like a beetle.

Question 3: How many facets does the Ring of Gaxx have?
