Nick Brooke: (paraphrased) Yeah, right. _You_ gonna pay for it, pal?

Sandy's humble suggestion: Do not reprint any issue. If someone wants a past issue no longer in stock, David offers to have a gopher xerox a copy of it and mail it to said someone at an exorbitant price, high enough to cover both the xeroxing and the time taken to do it, plus a nice profit for Reaching Moon.

        Presumably the number of people interested in back issues is low enough to make this a possible solution (which it is _not_ for Avalon Hill or Chaosium -- 100 people wanting xeroxes of old stuff at premium prices is not worth the trouble, whereas 10 people might be.)

        Very true. The Bat represents the Bat + his cult. Harrek represents Harrek + his einheriar. Of all the counters in the game, the one that comes closest to being a single individual is Androgeus.

        Tragically, the keets include a race of flamingomen, doubtless the source of WF14s. When working up the keets, I included flamingo keets, but my conscious mind had completely forgotten about WF14. I guess they're just a natural archetype.
