People have asked me why I wanted customers to mention Flying Buffalo to Mr. Stackpole. Flying Buffalo was one of the pioneers in play by mail games. Yes Virginia, before everyone had a PC on their desk people had to snail mail their moves to Flying Buffalo who would mail the results out to all the players. Hey, at the time it was a big deal! But it does appear that Mr. Stackpole has moved on. :)
But seriously all you AD&D'ers out there, you should go up to Mr. Stackpole and give him a big THANK YOU! You don't hear it as much today but when AD&D was taking off and we were all playing at a friends house the popular media was saying it was all Satanism and other bullshit. Mr. Stackpole was one of the few defenders of AD&D who actually did something to prove that all that bullshit was, well, bullshit:
So, I'm saying in all honesty here, completely separate from anything having to do with my store, that if you are an old AD&D player and you walk up and say "Thank YOU" to Mr. Stackpole at the store today I think it would be a nice little piece of karma for you. Just saying.
