Many of you wrote to tell me that apparently Raph “Designer Dragon” Koster was the victim of a catastrophic fire that basically wiped him out and left him without, among many other things, computers to get on the net with. If true, that would definitely suck and would explain his uncharacteristic silence (DD may be good, but I think even he requires a computer to post on Usenet).

Have a new article going up today, something some of you have been nagging me about for a while. Also need to get the design spec finished and in uploadable form for those of you who expressed an interest in the MMRPG idea. (Think a cross between Starflight, MOO2, and UO.)
