I don't remember the guys name, but he did work for Palladium Books. If I 
understand corectly, he was one of the original people that help get 
Palladium off the ground and one of Keven's best buddies. I hope they pull 
through, cause I don't want to see it truned into a D20 beast or see the 
prices get real unreasonable, like WW did.
