I read it, and although I have no issues with you or anybody else in particular, I still think some people here blatantly defend Cougie. 'Nuff said on that point - like you said, it's your decision to deal with whom you wish.

Back at ya.

Pre-Gencon jitters.....everyone take a deep breath and stare at the cover of the 1st edition PHB fora minute or two....very soothing.

I was referring to the cougarrinard thread...I thought that's what Al was mentioning in his reference to me "reading what he wrote"....I was just playing along.

mike, i want to DM a little game, but realistically, havent had time to plan one yet (heavy work load etc)....plus i dont know how jet lagged i am gonna be either. i dont arrive in indy until about 8.30pm, when martin is picking me up at the airport and heading back to him, so the realism of something weds night is totally no-no. after that i dunno, but i will see what i can do.

someone bring a DMs guide, and MM. i will (if i can) bring a mod, few dice, DM screen and some other bits. we will knuckle together something.

first was Q1 (too expansive), then ravenloft - couldnt be arsed sorting out a good plot, then tegel manor (no time to plan), then inferno (too long and no time to plan), so have "something" so just need to read up a little to see if its workable and i will take it from there. hopefully it will be good for a few hours of fun.

How about I1 or G1?  Both are smallish adventures that dont require any overland travel.  Something with pre-generated characters would be nice as well.

I you guys decide to run G1, I can provide extra copies of the G1-3 pregen PCs, since I'm using those for BC and WW for Rob's adventures.  They're on 1977 PC sheets too :D
