I guess I opened a can of worms on this.

I agree with my friend that we didn't want to sell this early, but noting
from the newsgroup and this list, distribution was/is the one pathetic. I
just wanted to get to everyone so that everyone has the cards they needed.
My public service to the community; and for fun & profit. :)

Some my said 'trading' doesn't belong here. But, where can one go, where
you can get the diehards. Also, I would like to point out, I still know
this list is still new, but eventually, you might think of creating a few
more lists. For example, L5R (boo/hiss) has several lists:

1) info (game mechanics & discusion)
2) trade (trade and forsale)
3) story (story)
4) game (playing L5R on the net between 2 or more people)



These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
