Not even that... they could have been fans of CS lewis, instead if, or in addition to, speaking Turkish.

This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.



Put your money where your mouth is pal, show me where I called him personal "Stupid"

And then show me where I implied he was a Lair"

I must say that I never got either implication, nor took offense at anything Pathfinder said. And if he believed that Aslans actually were uplifted lions, I can also see why he might take my previous post amiss. I've no complaints.

PS. I would have PMed this, but I can't send to two people at the same time.

True.

I do have a vague notion that it has been said somewhere that the humans in that region included a lot of people of Turkish descent, but I can't remember where and may be mistaken.

I believe that it was in ether the GT Core Book or GT: Alien Races 2.

I read both the Vargr and Kree books many years ago, (and didn't like either so stopped) but I'm sure I read somewhere that both the Vargr and Aslan were from Terran animals,

Weird, if not true, because I'm also sure I'm not the only one that thought this.

Given the number of complaints this thread has generated, both officially and in PMs, I think that is has served it's purpose.
