    Arg! All those pesky year date questions! I hate year date questions, especially when you bunch all the dates together so intelligent guessing is not a saving throw. Why can’t you ask something that I know a lot about like the common fluxes for smelting silver and gold in the Renaissance or who was the Grand Master of the the Order of St. John during the first Siege of Rhodes or the names of the gates through the Medieval walls of the City of Vienna? But NO, just more of those Pesky year date questions, miserable sniveling pesky year date questions… Humph! 😉
