Reminds me more of the Vulture Lions from the Deities and Demigods book.

the same reason owls, also being predatory birds, have camo.

So, you go down the spiraling stairwell to find that it empties out into a massive system of caverns. One of which, seems to open up to the outside. As you approach it, you sense movement. You turn to see and Owlbear. But it flies away. Because it's an Owlbear.

Looks like no- I really wanted to go, but at the moment I'm too damn poor. I've got it bookmarked for next year when I have a job, and some monies!

You'll have to share how it is. =D

student tickets are $30!
rooming with a friend makes it super cheap, sleep on a floor if you gotta, i can lend you a sleeping bag. ;)
where would you be coming from? Tons of Illustration Master Class Alum will be going so i bet i could hook you up.

Well that's certainly cheaper! Do you have to be a student though to get the student pass, or is it just a different type of pass?

Ha! this is the kind of work I'm doing all those studies for. Plus once I get the ball rolling I'll still need the studies to post since anything I'll be working on will be NDA.
