Silence, class, you had your laughs, now let's have a little history.

It looks primitive, doesn't it?

Well, what you surely don't see is what followed after it. This was the first table posted here, and a few others later followed, even less complete than this one. You may be wondering why is that important, but you know that users of this place have a tendency to add to incomplete things, and apply good ideas for other purposes.

I am sure you already know, what I want to say. This here is the grand-grandfather of today's Idea Scrolls! One of the most amazing discoveries of this century has its roots in this simple submission. Just think about it - every one of you has used a more advanced version at some point.

Now we'll have a little break, so look around, and don't break anything yourself. We will continue our tour through the Forums Of Ancient Times later.


Wow.  Who needs rolemaster now!!!! :P

I love this.
