This morning, ignoring the slackers on the panhandle of this revolting cesspool of a city, stepping over the druggie bums while hurrying to digital servitude in order to pay off my future self for my present home entertainment system, I took a sip of my Starbuck's and felt some small, unexpected mass strike my tongue - a bug.
The World of South Park was a literal interpretation of the hit television series from Comedy Central. Designed and moderated by As If Productions, this unique chat site used The Palace software to take participants inside the wacky universe of Cartman, Kenny, Kyle and Stan, America's favorite foul-mouthed eight-year-olds.
Tod Foley is a game designer, consultant and technical director. He has authored many role playing games, including CyberSpace, the RPG. You may know him as the editor of PIX-elation, or as the panelist at the Electronic Cafe or numerous other industry conferences and live events. He is the founder of As If Productions. Get the picture? Wait. He's active in IICS, the International Interactive Communications Society, and he devised the incredibly innovative LARP (Live Action Role Play) - Ghosts In the Machine.

Unfortunately, some evil priest's spell bound him to this bridge several days ago, and he is unable to overcome the magick. Blandisford uses the Codex of Truth to call upon the power of the deity and free his Elven ally, who repays him with a much-needed clue...
