Now there was a campaign!!!  I've bought every Blackmoor thing I could lay my 
hands on;  the original D&D supplement, Dave Arneson's First Fantasy Campaign 
by Judges Guild and the reworked Expert D&D modules based on that material 
(the DA series I believe).  Those are the only modules I didn't sell (other 
than Expedition to the Barrier Peaks).  Blackmoor is a huge inspiration to 
me.  I think that was as close to "true originality" (whatever that is) the 
genre ever got.  The image of the Egg figures very strongly in my campaign 
background; there are a multiplicity of eggs, both symbolic and otherwise, 
woven in.  Of course this leads me to the one obvious question, never 
answered in any of the Blackmoor material I ever had access to, what in hell 
was The Egg of Coot actually or rather what was it supposed to be originally? 
 If you or anyone else actually knows I am totally dying to find out.  I had 
thought that perhaps it was the sentient core of some abandoned AI "computer" 
but I never really knew.  Can anyone help??
