John Cranor Well it must be so then, cause I went to Appalachian State University, home of the Mountaineers. Now if I could just train a wizard. Thanks man.

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Never shave your beard and moustache, BTW! You must be very proud wearing them, that's the appearance of the Mountaineers, the only people who could become and train wizards in antiquity...:)

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Thanks for the add! Nice profile, shelf! Will be g;ad to share some recommendations, experience, etc in the future! Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (as my water dragons' hunters would greet - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
