Johnny Spectacles is still being a Thane-hog, so I have no tales of grand adventure to share (though Darwin's Ghost has been making nightly appearances in my hotel room to taunt me. I WILL find your evolvo-ray, old man! I swear it!).

was the highlight. But even more spectacular was the weapon collection. Remember in the AD&D Player's Handbook, how they had just pages upon pages of medieval-style weaponry? I have now seen almost all of them in person. Even the polearms. Hooray!
