This is the second time that something you said about your role in Stand By Me has brought a question to mind. How much do you think playing that role impacted your true personality and shaped your path for the rest of your life? Was it one of the those Significant Emotional Events that affects you deeper than you realize? Do you think it had the same impact on the other young actors you worked with? (You may have addressed this somewhere before and I just haven't found it and it looks like I am asking something similar to others in this conversation).

Who wouldn't be obsessed with those things? :)

Yeah, I saw it as more of a weird coincidence than anything else.

I think those are medicine shields with dream catchers hanging off of them. At least they haven't gotten to the "wolves playing cards" motif yet.

Just confirmed, in the Ad&D Core Rules 2.0 CD-ROM set (TSR, 1998), there is a map maker program. And it appears to have some intersting tools. Especially for a program that old.

Didn't TSR release a map making program in their CD-Rom release of the core rules? The problem with computer drawn maps (using Visio or Visio-like programs) is the inability to produce a maze of twisty passages, all alike. Computer applications just don't do "twisty" very well. I've used Visio to create building maps for Call of Cthulhu, but for any dungeon or cave-like settings, nothing beats a hand drawn map.

Broke my son into playing video games on a SNES my wife and I bought to play some of the old Mario games on. My "Rockwell" moment comes from teaching my son (7) how to play chess. He decided to make his own chess set. Next step - role playing games. Probably go with Swords and Wizardry since all of my old school books are gone. Which brings me to a question for Wil - have you ever looked at the Swords and Wizardry stuff? I just read their "Quick Primer for Old School Gaming" and had a few "Zen moments."

For the most part, the more "significant emotional events" a person goes through, the more wisdom they gain. And that author has had quite a few events in her life and around her. Hopefully, the rest of us can learn the lessons without the "dynamic tension learning."
