Knight Arrant (Errant?) Was a collection of short stories.  I enjoyed it the most of the several that I read.

Interesting bit of information on the 1st print Monster Manual I found in Judges Guild Journal P (December 1977 / January 1978):

TSR's Monster Manual is due to be shipped by the middle of January; but then, their printer had told them the middle of December, which is why we ran our ad in the last Issue. If it is finished before this Journal goes to print, the info will be in the Stop press section.


Now they did put it in the Stop Press section. They also had pictures of a Dec 17th party in that issue. One more bit of info for time line is the Thieves of Fortress Badabaskor that is part of Installment P is (c) 1978.

What was the rationale behind the law that reveals sperm donors' identities?  It seems to make absolutely no sense.

Every child has the right to be able to vent their anger/teenage angst towards their parents.

One more person that can say "it's just not fair" to. :lol:

So, it was the "right" of orphans to find their biological parents?

I believe that was the grid layout used to map Castle Ravenloft.   :o

Actually, it isn't a game sit, aia.  The guy even notes that he has no idea why someone would want hex paper.  The Muppet!

another question for you, since i cannot see any explanation behind this:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


now, my question: why should i wait for one week (and save of course 2 USD!!!!) instead of using BIN?   :?

now i still miss to see a BIN lower than the starting price, and then i'm able to declare that i saw everything on ebay...  8O

Some sellers do that to say, "OK...if you want to bargain hunt then click here, but if you know it will go higher than that click here."  

I think the benefit of an auction price and BIN so close together is that it gets listed in multiple searches.
