The best way to find more on the color v setting is to do a search on the

terms "Gary" and "Color" I tried it myself and you get all kinds of gems.

Then just look about at adjacent posts. This issue is largely driven by

Gary who has framed the debate and participated in it almost every time its

come up. I ran a search of it, and aside from suggestions than we adopt a

color coded this, or have color art there, its a pretty good way to hone in

on the issues involved. If you aren`t happy with Gary`s approach, look at

those adjacent posts, because others do chime in from time to time.



Off topic material are like gems in the mountains, irdeggman, you need the

patience of dwarves to mine them, but they are a treasure to obtain. (Or

you can just be in the mailing list and not miss a thing).

I try to use the spelling "colour" when talking about things like campaign

materials as opposed to game mechanics. The British spelling just strikes

me as being more appropriate to the issue since it doesn`t add anything to

the sense of the word, but does provide a sort of context, theme or

affectation to the issues discussed--not unlike colour material itself--so

if one were to do a search one might want to try that spelling.
