	Eesh.  I don't know, man.  When a TSR Rep actually
admits to watching both Twin Peaks AND The Tick...

	But to address the idea, I think it is an interesting
idea.  I don't know about needing a Ravenloft influence to
create it, though.  Simply harnessing fear seems to be on
the low end of the Ravenloft scale - although with a
small percentage powers check for each day the helm is in
use...
	I think the Fear Helm would have come out of a
"mistake" with a Lifejammer.  Perhaps the creator was trying
to harness MORE of the life force of the subjects, instead
of just whatever hit points represent.  Some how, this
crazed inventor managed to latch onto emotions at the cost
of hit points.

	Hmmm... didn't really add anything new.  Oh well.
Maybe someone else can come up with some better additons
to the thread.
