In the 40+years I've known Steve he has always been a man of integrity & 
never one to "mealy-mouth" anything. I've always admired him as a good 
man & a staunch friend./I could always whip him on the battlefield 
though, LOL ;-) ./ And as far as I know the closest he got to AD&D was 
invoking a reverse dollar sign as a saving rune against Gygax.
