Just for the playtest or would you like one for the Monster Builder as well?

Aw, cool. All the talk of water and phoenix for symbols of resurrection at Gleemax got more than just me thinking about a water phoenix. Pretty cool.

Don't know anything about what they are talking about at Gleemax.  We've been considering doing a water type of Phoenix for the next Monster Builder for awhile now.

I have an awesome name for it! 

How about the Torrent Phoenix!

Here's why I chose the word...

Defintion 1 says it all.

I was speaking of the KA resurrection discussions at the Gleemax KA forum (Now the Magazine forum) when we were discussing the covers of issues 10 and 11. Sorry to bring up a scarred past, but that's where the discussion seems to have originated.

In that discussion we were talking about symbols of resurrection, and two items came up: the phoenix, which inspired the name of the new magazine, and water, both symbolizing rebirth.

That being part of the old forum I don't really consider that area as having been taken over by the brain in a jar (other then the demise of KA).

We collected a bunch of stuff from the Monster Builder and now Skip gets to put them together.

I think this is a great idea to post it here, however, maybe it is just the work computer, but the log is difficult to comprehend.

Is there a better format for the log?
