Hi all,

	I'm back from my little sojourn away from a modem, whether you like
it or not... (:

In our last episode, Thomas O. Magann Jr. said:

	Can a Magic Mirror see that far?  Once again I don't have the books
with me, but a parsec or more seems quite a distance for even a spell.
Besides, not every star has planets, and not every planet has life, or
interesting life for that matter.

	I personally have a hard time dealing with the shear amount of
(nearly) intelligent life found in space.  I prefer low(er)-fantasy, and
I like a bit of sci-fi flavor in my games.  Maybe I wouldn't have such a
hard time with it if TSR didn't make the system so screwy.  It's much easier
to accept magic when it follows it's own laws.  Maybe I've just been an
engineer to long. <sigh>

>Call your local scuba shop. It's part of their business to know how much air
[Etc.]

	That's a great idea.  Thanks...!   (:
