     Not too ironic, really.  They acted pretty quickly given that they found
out Something Was Up when the planet's appearance in telescope changed.  :)
Khadam found out about Montreal way back in CSV #25, and Q'Nos thanks to
Simon's scrying.  Veturna was actually there in part at the behest of the NAC
(and the EU, etc), she just had the ability to take off on a scouting mission
with minimal prep.  Meanwhile, neither China nor the Moslem Confederation has
made any sort of move yet, nor has the EU done so beyond their UW

     Yeah, most obvious mystery ever.  I did change the details later on (the
original plan was pretty much the timeline he was preventing, but without the
Milwaukee disaster...just teach the kid to control his power), finding a more
dramatic way of doing things, but I avoided the temptation to Monarch it and
make him someone completely different because he'd been sussed.

     Maybe that guy got vanished in 1998.  Or maybe we've seen him, just not
under an obvious name.  Or maybe he has yet to show up.  :)

     Dave Van Domelen, was hoping to get at least a comment on the point that
he actually put out an LNH story this year....
