    Many years ago I was taken on a tour of the old TSR plant in Lake Geneva Wisconsin — the house that Gygax built, although it was after his tenure. The place was huge, like a modern airport terminal… complete with helipad. No helicopter, just a helipad.

    Hey, you never know who’s going to drop by.

    If not for TSR, I never would have been able to steal Timothy Truman over for First Comics. So I appreciate the folks there…

    Ow. Second time today I’ve had to correct "aficionados." The other person plays D&D, too. How about a spellchecker?

      I fixed it, thanks.

      Having two f’s was actually valid according to Merriam Webster, but the "ian" in the middle wasn’t.

      Cigar Aficionado works with two f’s in the URL, too.

      Ah, spelling…

      • Marilee J. Layman says:

        Well, "afficionado" is listed as a variation, so it’s not the base spelling. I stopped trying to put links in words, but I see you can do it, so I’ll try it again the next time. Oh, and I didn’t have to sign in today!

    Gary, sadly, has run out of hit points. He has failed his last saving throw and gone behind the great GM screen on the table. May all his 20s be natural.
