    Gary,


    How many hits do you get when you trying the other spellings of the name?

    Dwayne
    Dewayne

    Gary is pretty much spelled 1 way.

    And you actually get cities named Gary.

    There is also the double "r" spelling, but that one`s just part of the
    overall conspiracy of engravers....

    In any case, I`m sure if we googled all three spellings of Duane we might
    come up with a per capita hate index that rivals those who hate
    Gary. You`re still not going to get called "very hairy, scary _Duane_ the
    merry berry fairy" except by the lamest rhymers. (Though now that I think
    of it that may have inspired a theme for a new awnshegh....)

    Really? I got over 5,000,000 hits when I tried it.
    Though I didn`t use the precise quotation mark that you did. Just any
    association with "hate" and "Gary" sounded appropriate to me. Here`s some of
    the most popular Garies to hate: Gary Payton, Gary Coleman, Gary Halbert,
    Gary Sheffield, Gary the location manager, Gary Bettman, Gary Durney, Gary
    Numan, Gary Graham, and many others...
    I don`t know how you only got 608 hits for "hate gary." From what I see,
    there`s a near infinite source of Gary-haters out there. In fact, I typed "I
    hate Gary" into a search engine and got almost 6,000 hits. "you hate Gary"
    yielded 400 hits and included such topics as "do you hate Gary, too?" or "if
    you hate Gary and you want to hurt him in some way." In fact, "hurt Gary"
    yielded 900 hits, about half of "kill Gary." If you think you can hide,
    you`re wrong. There`s about 26,500 hits for "find Gary." You must have been
    really bad in a past life to come back as a Gary. How do you sleep at night?

    Did you put the respective words inside the quotes? "hate Gary" and "hate
    Duane". If you just google the words you`ll get all sites that have the
    word "hate" and the name "Gary" on them. Granted, you`ll miss the people
    who hate Gary or Duane enough to use a few adjectives... as in, "I hate
    that jackass Gary" but it`s really just a benchmark, after all.

    With one eye open from now on....

    how do I convert a 2. ed. regent with a bloodscore of (Major, 22) is he going to be able to collect 11 regency per season, have 1 minor bloodability and 1 level in the scion class or am I just confused?

    You seem to be combining things here.

    Chap 2 has been revised but chap 5 has not so use the revised to "fix" the unrevised as it were.

    So a bloodline score of 22 with a major bloodline.

    He can collect 22 RP and take 1 level of scion class and have 1 minor ability.

    Reimer, You are close, you would be able to receive 22 RP instead of 11 though and that one level of scion class is available to you if you want it. That is, as I understand it.

    Also:

    Have you ever noticed that characters in film and TV named "Gary" are
    always hopeless nerds or obnoxious jocks? There`s never a Gary that`s the
    hero.... At least, not that I`ve ever seen. I`m convinced it`s a
    conspiracy of all the Daves, Steves and Erics. Could be worse, I
    suppose. Not a lot of heroic characters named Sheldon...
    My first name is Sheldon, and though I'm not named after any heroic characters that I am aware of, atleast it doesn't rhyme with too much.
    Unfortunately, if kids on the playground have to work too hard to make fun of your first name in a rhyming manor, they are always free to attack your last name. In grade school I was commonly refered to as "Sheldon Cooper the pooper scooper" Boy, the brainiacs it took to assign me that profession I tell you.

    Sorry Reimer, Irdeggman already answered your question, and probably better than I did.

    That should teach me to start typing a reply, go to lunch, and then come back and THEN finish it and click the submit reply button.
