head of Vecna

The recent thread about the rations of detonations made me laugh hard. I must be mean-spirited. In that vein, I wish to provide amusement for those who are equally mean-spirited. I heard about this from one of the participants long before I saw it on the web, so I am pretty sure it is all true.

Very funny.

Why, oh why, is the druid always the 1st outcast (and the mage 2nd).

Nice - but ancient. It must be, what, ten years since I read that. Fifteen, even.

My favourite bit is where he says that several of the PLAYERS "had to be hurt and restrained" ...

I met the friend who told me about it in 1987, but I don't know when he told me the story.

I guess I should have added some context. D&D already had a couple of well-known artifacts, the hand of Vecna and the eye of Vecna. The way you use those is to replace the char's hand or eye. So everyone "knew" how the head should be used, and that's why it was a mistake for the head to have both eyes in it.
