First off, let me apologize for not posting the winner when I said I would. I have a chronic rheumatoid condition that flared really badly, finally ending in a trip to the urgent care clinic last night and a cortizone shot. Things are better but my brain is still a little foggy. I’m hoping to resume normal posting schedule on Monday.
Next, thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to my post. I really appreciated all of your input and was really happy to see the discussion didn’t degenerate into an edition war. You’ve all given me a lot of good information to think about.
Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for — the results of the contest. After removing the names of those who asked to not be entered, I had slightly under twenty entrants. So, I chose randomly the way any self-respecting GM would — I rolled a d20. The winner is … Paul. I’m still waiting for RPG Shop to get the dice to me and then I’ll mail them out to you.
