    The Starfleet Field Manual actually says that in a situation involving danger or hostility, any away team with at least one officer must be composed of as many of the ship's high-ranking officers as possible, so as to not split the command structure. Only non-essential personal are to remain on the ship.

    By extension, there must then be a chance to encounter the horde while the dragon is far away!

    Ah that explains it. Would redshirts be the equivalent of goblin henchmen in this case?

    Mort, I enjoyed the memorial to your friend. Sounds like someone I would have enjoyed meeting. I'm glad he "lives on" in your home game. Happy

    Well done, my friend. Cool

    I wasted how many mintues....?

    Hi all -
    [uck, that was long. I love the picture of Rasgon, and that is EXATCLY how I imagine him - with all that Greyhawk Knowledge.
    I only have one quibble with it all. Well, actually I might have more quibbles if I had "demonic" enhanced knowledge like Rasgon (Because although Pholtus doesn't believe in other gods, he has a wild imagination, which allows him to permit other gods and demons, but not obscure rules or even more obscure Greyhawk Lore). My quibble is the "Ivid the Undying" picture. Because I happen to have a picture of the actual product. Erik Mona actually produced it while he was with WotC/TSR (likely given to him by Lisa "Greyhawk MegaBabe" Stevens - who was the 90's Greyhawk Brand Manager).
    I've uploaded the 3 pictures to your site.

    Front of Ivid the Undying


    Back of Ivid the Undying



    Erik provided this picture to be what he thought the cover artwork should be. However, I've always thought the picture looked my in line with Iuz than what I imagined what Ivid would look like (besides, that throne doesn't look like Malachite [a green stone]).


    I'm sure Erik provided these on the WotC forums - I think it was around the time that the LGG was produced, but I can't be sure.

    Be Well. Be Well Undying.

    I prefer this picture to the current PDF cover floating about:



    It was simple to mock up in Photoshop. The product code fonts were based on those of products from that time, but the title font was of my choosing. I think it evokes the right feel. Cool

    Awesome, Mort! Totally awesome!

    Things I hadn't "known" before and cool memories, all rolled into one. Great stuff! Happy

    And we all appreciate you giving Rasgon a "new" avatar, one more in line with his actual -- or imagined -- appearance! Laughing Laughing

    Just having fun with you, Grey Sage! Wink

    You never disappoint Mort. Where would "we" be without you? I shudder to think! Evil Grin

    These should come in handy if you need to 'make brown' again. Remember, you're not getting any younger...Old Friend. Cool

    I once played in a campaign where the DM insistened that because it was called Dungeons and DRAGONS, it was necessary to multiply their HD by 10. He laughed when I broughte but he subdule rule. He he.

    Theocrat For the WIN!

    Hi All -
    I do declare that if I do not win - I will pull the plug on this whole damn thing.
    I'm not just talking to Mort here - I'm talking to all you heathens.
    If you do not vote for Pholtus to win the whole damn tournament....WoG Comic goes the way of the Dodo bird (not Ice Age the movie style either).

    In fact, here it is and why Pholtus will win....he doesn't believe in the other gods - thus there is no way they can beat him. When he goes against Celestian, there is no competition. Celestian would walk away from the court anyway. Next up, Vatun is a made up god by a demi-god (right, or is the Theocrat thinking that wrong?).
    So no matter what Pholtus wins.
    The vote better be rigged, jigged and multi-voted for Pholtus to win or Else, WoG goes away....I have Theocratic powers!

    Be Well. Be Well Voted.
    Theocrat Issak
    P.S. It is a serious threat too.....serious I say....serious...delusional
