I haven't been here all week, so I haven't been able to defend myself against the flames my posting seems to have caused. I seem to be a downright failure when it comes to creating new items. This idea was originally designed to be non-magical, that's why I used "non-magical" in the post. But it would not seem to come out right non-magically, so I changed it to a magical item. I am sorry I was still in the non-magical frame of mind when I wrote that post. It seemed to be nothing but flame bait, so I apologize to the listmembers for creating excess mail. However, I do want to respond to some of the heavy flames I received. I was not "beating around the bush", as one of you so put it. I came up with that because I thought it was catchy. Sorry you didn't think so. I was open to constructive criticisms, but I received some points in a few posts that to me, IMHO, were very insulting. In response to the line about no one in medival times thinking of this, here is my 2 cp: THIS IS ONLY A GAME! The game was designed along the lines of fantasy, not reality. Of course there are some realistic points of view to it, but I don't view it that way. It is a game, something you can have fun with. I created these items because I like the way it makes my games go. I didn't say anyone had to use it. I just thought you might like to see it. I have often received heat and concern from my family and friends about how this game can be "evil" and "demonic". I have often told them that it is just a game, and what happens in the game does not happen in real life. Others don't feel that way, they think it's real. I will admit that some of you are scaring me by the way you talk about the game. It's as if it is real. Please tell me if I am wrong. If this post offends anyone, respond to me personally. We'll discuss our differences there. Thank you. I have been wanting to get this off my chest for some time now, and I felt now was the time. If my sig offends anyone, don't worry, I'm changing it soon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ ~ ~ Shane C.
