Re: (TFT) A little moralistic digression...

<< a medeival miniatures game set
up in a very moody castle environment of Blackmoor. >>
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??
