Well,  I agree on the don't let it worry you part, and I apoligize again to
those who saw this (you said 14 months Static?) type of thread before.
Seemed like one that might have gotten knocked to the ground.  Its the sort
of detail I like to have,  in my campaigns,  to add flavor.

I really liked both Static and Thomas Magann's rationales.  I think I might
use some combination of the two (and insure my own world creations _don't_
always have people who speak common:)).  Thanks to both.

One question,  in regards to the "Trader Gods"  who exactly did you mean?
Are they in a product,  or just the dieties already detailed who deal with
commerce (Waukeen for FR,  Vergedain for the dwarves,  Hermes for the Greek
myths?)

Please feel free to answer privatly if you feel this is not an appropriate
topic for the list (or,  feel free not to answer at all:))

Thanks to all,  again.

"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."

Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
