Question I am looking for

I am looking for picture of the "Red Star" for my Make Your Own Monopoly game. (I am trying to do a Pern one)

I also need pics of some of the holds & crafts. Does anyone know where I might get some?
Thanks

I can't help there, but you did inspire me to do some googling, and look what I found...

Is that Mnementh with a STEERING WHEEL?

Did you never see the cover of the first US bookclub Dragonriders of Pern trilogy, Kath?

It's so ugly, it's pretty special
It's not a steering wheel but as near as you can get to one
And again a nearly naked lady! Lessa on Ramoth I suppose. (Also notice her pose, I sure hope she doesn't have a saddle knob on her gear...)
F'lar is tough enough to wear a sleeveles vest at quite an altitude

Mawra, print Michael Whelan's cover for Dragonflight and with a pair of scissors you can cuout as large a piece you need from this.

It's one of the best and most menacing red stars I've seen and has the added advantage of having a bit of dragon in the pic...

It does look it, doesn't it? Why?? It's like putting a steering wheel on a horse

Saddle and stirrups too!

I misread the text as 'Menolly with a steering wheel' at first, and thought the gizmo might be some kind of fancy harp.

I think it's just a fancy handlebar sticking up from a saddle, for something to hang onto.

It's really more of a grip-bar, but the round shape does make it look like a steering wheel.

Is your printer one of those 3-in-1 jobs? We have one that scans, photocopies (great because I don't have to turn the computer on to use it) as well as prints out stuff.

Mine is, but I am having a problem reading buttons, which why I haven't posted much for images.

I might have a idea for some of them, I need to dig for that, stuff

Yes, but right now the computer is mad at the printer so they are not talking. Which makes things hard.

Not only that but stirrups jacked so high and with the feet so far turned out, you might as well not have them. Really, that is the cover that put me off reading any DoP beyond Moreta (which had the Whelan cover) for a LONG time because it was so gosh-darn UGLY.

That picture of the Red Star looks like... well... a star.

The Red Star is supposed to be a solid planet, with swirling clouds - not a burning star. I would try for something like Mars.

I reckon when AMC wrote about the red star, she probably had Mars in mind. What do others think?

And clouds around it, as we see from DQ. And that is a very nice picture.

Well, this may sound funny, but to be honest, something like this I had in mind while asking about how they stay on the dragon in How to ride a dragon thread, because this is exactly (just not so round, mind you) how they pictured Eragon staying in the saddle in the movie. But, come to think about it, it does look awful like a steering wheel.

The printer & computer have kissed & made up. They are talking to each other again.


My sister reinstalled the printer.

I also have a computer and 3 and 1 hook up to the printer. As least they are still talking to each other although lately, when I've printed something from the net, the text that should be in black comes out in red or pink.
