The only website in the Pony is in the cellar, I’m afraid, courtesy of the spiders Nob has failed to evict.

On a more serious note, I know some of my patrons are MERP or ex-MERP enthusiasts, so it wouldn’t be out of place to mention that I’ve just seen an obituary in Amon Hen (one of the publications of te Tolkien Society, for those of you who aren’t members) for the one and only Gary Gygax, the grand old man – indeed, the creator – of Middle-earth roleplaying. He passed away a few months ago, at the age of 69. I still remember my original copy of Dungeons & Dragons turning up in the post (3 booklets in a box, all a bit amateur-looking!) back in the day. I think I still have it somewhere. I never did use it, though – I was looking for LOTR wargame rules at the time, and they didn’t yet exist.
