The Object: Name (and discuss, if you'd like) a great musical album starting with a certain letter of the alphabet. Let's start with A, get six or eight or ten albums to talk about, then move on to B, and then to C, and so on. You know the drill. Let's begin with one of my favorite albums, 1982's eponymous album by progressive rock band Asia. Asia featured John Wetton (King Crimson, UK), Steve Howe (Yes), Carl Palmer (ELP), and Geoff Downes (Yes, The Buggles) in one of the great supergroups of the 80s. Asia was the best selling album of 1982. It leads with "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell", both massive radio hits. "Wildest Dreams" and "Sole Survivor" also received radio play. The old bit about how the star that burns twice as bright burns only half as long was exemplified by Asia, and by 1985 Steve Howe had left the group (for the first of three times, as it turns out). But this first album was nearly perfect.
A little game. Player describes the treasure hoard of the creature/being/vault given above. It can be as general or as precise as you'd like. For example: Creature: The Nymph of Crystal Falls Hoard: Driven by her fey-born narcissism, Allura the Nymph has gathered a modest hoard of gifts brought to her by prospective suitors, as well as the remains of a few would-be ravagers - she's not without defense. She keeps her treasures in her abode, a cottage she crafted using her magic. She's surprisingly tidy for a creature of chaos and keeps her sparkly coins in small, nature magic-crafted chests - those alone being worth half the value of the coins they hold. She has a surprising number of silver mirrors, flowers from all over the world growing in pots of specially treated soil, statuettes of magnificent creatures in various stone or metal medium, and a wardrobe of gorgeous gowns and dresses. Finally, the north wall or her humble abode is a show-room of (mostly normal or masterwork) weapons, polished and cleaned, mounted next to the head of the being who tried to use it on her. Next Creature: Havnorraz, the Demon Dog of Greenwood.
