It's okay, Freefootgirl, I don't read alot of Dragonlance myself, so I hadn't a clue about Dalamar either. I knew about Raistlin because, well, because my sister went through a bad-boys streak and geeked over him for a year or two. That and a guy I rped with in a play by email named his character after him. Very interesting, but I'd really like to pound some humanity into that annoying mage.
Not that I blame him for turning out like he did, at least, not unduly blame him. His brother didn't help the whole keep-Raist-from-going-EEEEEVIL quest.
In point of fact, can you imagine Raist getting with Winnie? At least it'd be one more person who wouldn't age in front of his eyes.
