    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

      Good job!

      I had a subscription to Dungeoun before it came out, so I had the first 3 years of it (at one time).

      I miss that magazine! (Yes, I know it still exists but it's just not the same.)

        That seems to be so true with gaming magazines for some reason. I was never a Dragon reader - White Dwarf was THE magazine for me in the '80s.

        You can divide the 'history' of that magazine into (at least) three (rough) eras - the 'Ian Livingstone' years when it was essentially a D&D/Traveller magazine, the 'independent' years when it focussed more on plugging Games Workshop's own products like WFB, WFRP, and Judge Dredd as well as 'co-licenced' games like CoC, RQ, Stormbringer, etc. rather than TSR's games. and then the 'Brian Ansell' years when Citadel took over and WD basically an extended advert for miniatures. :x

        I tend to think that WD finally 'lost the plot' for me somewhere around #110 when they basically stopped covering RPGs. I think I have every issue from either #4 or #5 to #103 (+ the 'Best of' compilations) plus photostats of selected articles from #104-115. I started buying it again for a short while when GW's LOTR table-top wargame came out but I tended to rip off the non-LOTR pages and throw them away. :P
        _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
        _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
        _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
        _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

          Now that's scary - not only do I have almost exactly your views on the way White Dwarf (and gaming magazines generally) died off, that is almost a copy of my WD collection you have as well!
