Since I first posted my adventure list on rec.games.int-fiction, I have gotten feedback from an incredible number of people. I will make no attempt to list everyone who has contributed here, just a few of the major contributors. To all of you who have sent me information but aren't listed below: Thanks! To all of you who are listed here: Thanks even more! Without all of you, this list would be far from as complete as it is now.
