Thsi raises an interesting point: who thinks their characters will ever
think about this?  I, for one, believe that the average grunt fighter from
Krynn would probably just think to imself "It sure is a good thing these
gusy all speak Common...otherwise I'd be in a lot of toruble."  If he
thought that much on it.  Now, as for the sages, mages, and priests, well,
I'm sure they'd come up with their own explanations.

>>ps.  What's up with all these names?  We have "The Mage" and "Game Master".

>>pps.  I want to be "The Rogue"!  (:

Well...can I be the first captain? :)
