I suppose I could have, but only if Spanker 4 had really wanted to play 
Show and Tell.  And then things would have gotten weird, because the 
Powernaut and company were *standing* on that part of the Earth.

1.  I invented the Doom Bear in the 1980s, when I was getting really 
annoyed with Care Bears.  Ellipsis and his allies soon disposed of the 
Doom Bear.  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/1988/balance8.rtf

2.  One of my game-playing friends independently invented the Doom Koala 
of Speed.

3.  I ran gaming campaigns in which Ellipsis was the main non-player 
character.  When my friend brought the Doom Koala in, I said, "Sure, I 
have a place for him."  My friend promptly responded, "You do??"

4.  I eventually brought into the game a Doom Creature for every 
continent - minus North America because oddly enough, dead creatures 
usually stay dead in my world.  It was revealed that the Doom Creatures 
are avatars of the end of the world - but they don't usually fight to 
bring that end about, unless they've been ensorceled or something.  Some 
of them treat humans as pets.
