I think it is for the revised 2nd Edition PHB.  The black covered one.

I'm feeling stupid…  :lol: Yes it's the sketch that inspired the revised 2nd edition PHB cover… The mind is slipping these days.
Thanks for the correction guys!  :)

Okey Dokey - a side issue to this thread - Thumbing through old WD's and such like a few names were stalwarts in the industry back in my day - where are they now? Are any of them still involved in gaming, where, to sum up, have all these good men gone.

In no particular order
Steve Jacson & Ian Livinstone - must have made fortunes from FF and were probably the first to bring D&D physically into this country

Carl Sargeant - wrote lots of good stuff (think I read about him on here a long while ago
Jim Bambra
Graeme Morris - ST1 anyone?
Mike Brunton - as above
Phil Gallagher
Graeme Davis - See Alexander1968 interview
Lewis Pulsipher (Great name!)
Paul Vernon - Starstone - how we love thee!

Any info greatly appreciated - I'm too lazy to find out myself
(On a personal note,just about my favourite regular in WD was Critical Mass with Dave Langford, a funny guy. I can heartily reccomend signibg up to his periodic mailing list for SF fantasy fiction nonsense)

Carl Sargent  appearently dropped out of the gaming industry and went back to the UK probably into academia.
Steve Jackson is still very much involved in the industry.
Ian Livingstone climbs mountains.
Jim Bramba is the head of Pivotal Games.
Lewis Pulsipher is a professor at Central Carolina Community College.

The Mystery of Carl Sargent.   I really do wonder where he is.

I've been in touch with Paul as recently as last year, and the same with Roger Musson (he wasn't only your list, but I thought I'd mention him since his "Dungeon Architect" articles in WD are often remembered fondly).  Paul was involved with some online games, IIRC, while Roger's not been in the industry for awhile.

Yes - he should have been on the list of course (Dungeon Architect series were reprinted in Best of WD articles as I remember - great stuff)

Yo yo yo everyone!

I very occasionally drop by and scan through some threads. Definitely life 'getting in the way'.

3 kids (ages 7, 5, 2) keep me and my wife busy and we're moving house soon.

Still developing AuctionSieve when I get the time although not really getting to use it myself! I'm making decent money from it now but still not enough that I can quit from contracting. Oh, bring on that day...

And I've been reading Star Wars comics.... heh

BTW Tablet PCs rock for reading pdfs! And cdisplay rocks as well.

*bump*

Alright, does anyone know where Shipley has been lately? I haven't seen him post in at least a couple months now.  I hope everything is okay. :)

Also, where the hell has David been.  Its obvious from Ebay, that he's around, but he hasn't posted anything in awhile either.  C'mon David, where the hell are you? :)

I think David has a pretty hectic job that keeps him on the go.

I know he is around, I can tell.  That wasn't my point. :)  My point was why isn't he posting anymore?

To quote BC earlier in this thread

Thinking about Mark earlier - Hasn't posted in nearly a month but last logged on 14/9.

Looking at Mark's profile - he's about to hit another 1000 milestone - guess you're making it a great post Mark? :wink:

FYI

I recently had a deal with Hamilcar and had some problems of communication: this was not usual with him in the past but i had a week of silence after the auction...

Then he popped up and reported that he had troubles with Gustav... apparently few days after he had back power to his home and could log to reply and finalize the deal!
