Lord Gwydion, I left a message for you on James' blog, but I saw that you were writing, so I decided to leave it here in hopes you'll see it in December. Sir, did I truly create a giant three headed hermaphorodite? It isn't that I don't believe you, I am just wondering where you found it? I would love to try to remember why I did it and if it was on a dare. Doing that kind much of a sexual being isn't like me. Granted my Greek Columns are naked, but they were suppose to be half naked and on a pedestal like the ones I saw in my Art History Book. I am just curious is all.Jean Wells
Please chop the "kind" out of the 7th sentence.Jean
Lord, what you are referring to are Ubues from Palace of the Silver Princess. In my description of them they are all of one sex as it clearly states the first one is a female. The artist, Erol Otis, took liberties as he was want to do and mixed my sexes up. At the time I didn't notice this. It really wouldn't have done me any good anyway. Once a picture was that complete it was in. So you see, Ubues are not meant to be hermaphorodites, but straight sexes. They aren't giants either. I am however, glad you found something of interest in an Ubue. Your game is yours and if you want them to be giant hermaphorodites with three heads, then that's what they'll be. Happy gaming my Lord.Jean
Jean, thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. Yes, if you'd replied on James's board, I likely wouldn't have seen it.I was thinking of the Ubues from Orange cover B3. I guess part of my mistaken image of them was from the way my DM described them, as 10-feet tall. The hermaphrodite comment was because of the picture, yes. I guess we can chalk that up to Erol Otis. I guess the old article about why B3 got redone on WotC's web page when they released it for download might have colored my perceptions as well. I never played either version back in the day, it was only about two years ago that I finally got to play through your version of the module.Thanks for the clarifications on your intentions for the Ubues. I'm glad to learn a bit more about the thought process that went into the module, and the later distortions that seemed to crop up. And please, just call me Dennis!
