Happy Elf Smilie Its all right, I just didn't make myself clear enough yesterday. No harm done, just a couple of us birds with our feathers ruffled. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

I thought it was like the first person who approaches the question answers it... because one other community that I belong to works that way... than again I should know better, not every community is the same
A poisoned spear my dear Master of Grond!
Technically it was a poisoned javelin, but that is just another name for a short spear, so Aul wins the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie
