   I'm sorry.  I had no intention of seeming to dislike Kender.  I was
indicating that I found it humorous.  Kender have a propensity for saying
exactly the wrong words, "finding" the wrong items, and being in the wrong
places that rivals any swashbuckler's wet dreams.
   And kleptomania isn't their worst side; it's their AF (Annoyance Factor),
which is only as low as it is BECAUSE they are trustworthy, caring, loving,
good-hearted, fearless, and so on and so forth.  They are actually banned
from certain cities (unless with a trusted escort) in Krynn, you know..

   I am also *extremely* familiar with Krynn.  To the point of redundancy.
I will consider your mistake corrected on this point, and leave it alone.
   I think, if you read these self-same books, that you will find my
comment on "wanderlust" also fully justified.  Imagine bounty-hunters trying
to track a Kender's trail through seven spheres, only two of them on the
map!

   Again, I am sorry that I gave you the wrong impression.
