This is how I recall it as well. But wasn't sure if I ever considered
a moon or not. A bit of cavey, middle world yet Ryloth type place
at times. Never played in it yet. I need to. Technically played
in Avalon which is if i recall technically a UW area. But not in
the large UW areas. I do have some good players that could afford
to go there except the new guys. They might be at risk.

Yep. Seems like now that I think of it....way back in late '80s
I did something in this region...hmmmmm....I'd have to check my
file cabinet of documents. Maybe it was just some npc beign tossed
there and trying to get out....i can't recall.

Yep. I'm sure Kiet will vacation there soon...

So bags of meat for experience eh :) Size that whole Size thing when
it came out confused me for a bit. Can't even recall if there is
a chart for it anymre. Would have to check my archives.

To me the Elementals would want to expand their own regions not for
war/power but for simple territory. More volcanos or larger water
areas. How I saw them 30 years ago.
>None of the forces in the area would be especially welcoming to
But in my universe humans are definitely there. Some to escape
or some just to struggle. :)
BTW - What is Kiet's bet with Kell on the goblin meat? :)
Figure I'd ask here since too lazy to email.
