That's pretty good actually.

Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking as well.

I have read them both! Mostly it was "situation x appears in D&D

However I find the RuneQuest system and the world of Glorantha provides a
more richer opportunity for series of essays for publication (which is a
side I can handle).
