interesting read, the RPG' one; but one thing i've noticed is that the writer point of view doesn't detach itself ever from what was the pow on the things he recounts when they happens: "it was perceived this way" "it was perceived that way" etc...
a chronic.

Great stuff Dizzy
The FPS Quantum Leap Award was a great one, but sadly Doom wasn't voted #1
