Manta (and esteemed board members)

I'm confused, first you say you "don't really like S&P". Later you state you
"liked what you saw". Maybe you were referring to PO: Spells and Magic?

I use C&T and S&P extensively. You have to tweak the point costs somewhat but
it allows for some unique character "classes". I think it may drag the pace of the game down somewhat, but my player's really like it.

I've developed a point allocation for all the specialty preists of Cerilia and
proposed it as a Dragon article. If it doesn't get printed there I'll share.

Hey! I use escudos as the coinage for Sendoure and Basaiam (the Lamia's realm).
At least the Portugese monetary unit has made it to America. :)
