The character with the bomb trigger tripped and he failed his saving throw. He landed face down (up?) on top of the bomb trigger and set off the bomb. Our characters died from the blast. The End.

Character generation, ship building and world generation are games within themselves, as well as being tools with which to construct the game universe. The thing I always disliked about D&D was the "here's a dungeon, there's gold, kill the monsters to get to it" game. Maybe it was the D&D DMs I play...

I had a brilliant time, and I was somewhat amazed and not a little disturbed to note exactly how much I remember about Hivers from memory... this either makes me very excellent, or very sad indeed.... :?

I bring this up because there were *some* changes to the art content between editions, 's'all....
