    In the case of nearly every PS, I`ve chosen to ignore their alterations from
    the realm discription books. In nearly all cases, the new regent story was
    artificial and goofy compared to what had been presented earlier.

    I love this kind of reinterpretation. We should see more of it. Groups
    will interpret their histories differently from one another. A standard
    interpretation is hard to justify, unless it is intended to be some kind of
    DM-objective point of view.

    TSR`s quality control must`ve been quite nonexistent in those days, with
    every Tom, Dick and Harry writing a PS.
