Teton Range

The Teton Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains in North America. It extends for 40 miles in a north–south direction through the U. S. state of Wyoming, east of the Idaho state line. It is south of Yellowstone National Park and most of the east side of the range is within Grand Teton National Park. Early French voyageurs named the range les trois tétons after the distinct breast-like shapes of its peaks, from which the modern name is derived, it is that the local Shoshone people once called the whole range Teewinot, meaning "many pinnacles". The principal summits of the central massif, sometimes referred to as the Cathedral Group, are Grand Teton, Mount Owen, Middle Teton and South Teton. Other peaks in the range include Mount Wister, Buck Mountain and Static Peak. Between six and nine million years ago and thinning of the Earth's crust caused movement along the Teton fault; the west block along the fault line rose to form the Teton Range, creating the youngest mountain range in the Rocky Mountains.

The fault's east block fell to form the valley called Jackson Hole. The geological processes that led to the current composition of the oldest rocks in the Teton range began about 2.5 billion years ago. At that time and volcanic debris settled into an ancient ocean. Additional sediment was deposited for millions of years and heat and pressure metamorphosed the sediment into gneiss. Subsequently, magma was forced up through the cracks in the gneiss to form granite, anywhere from inches to hundreds of feet thick. Other intrusive igneous rocks are noticeable as the black dikes of diabase, visible on the southwest face of Mount Moran and on the Grand Teton. Starting during the Cambrian period, deep deposits of sedimentary rock were deposited in shallow seas over the metamorphic basement rocks. Erosion and uplift have exposed the metamorphic and intrusive igneous rocks now visible on the east slope of the range and in the Cathedral Group and the Paleozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary rocks on the west slope.

As as 2.1 million years ago the Huckleberry Ridge Tuff was deposited along the west slope of the north part of the range. One reason the Teton Range is famous is because of the dramatic elevation profile visible from the eastern side, which rises from 4,000 to 7,000 feet above the valley floor. Unlike most mountain ranges, the east side of the Teton Range lacks significant foothills or lower peaks which might obscure the view; this is due to the presence of the Teton Fault at the base of the east slope as well as the range being too young to have eroded into soft hills. The Snake River flows southward through the valley before entering Idaho; the Tetons and Jackson Hole have been the setting for a number of films, including John Wayne's film acting debut in The Big Trail in 1930 and the western film classic Shane in 1953. Mount Moran and the surrounding mountains were used as a backdrop for the lake/swamp setting in the original television series Land of the Lost.

William Rawson

William Stepney Rawson was an amateur footballer who played at full-back for England in the 1870s, was an FA Cup Final referee in 1876. Rawson was born in South Africa, the son of Rawson W. Rawson, he attended Westminster School in London, representing the school at "soccer" in 1872 and 1873, becoming captain in his final year. He went up to Christ Church, Oxford, in 1873, winning a "blue" in four consecutive years, from 1874 to 1877. Academically he graduated as BA in 1877 and MA in 1880, he became the first player born in Africa to appear in an FA Cup final when played in the 1874 FA Cup Final for Oxford University – in the match, played against the Royal Engineers at the Kennington Oval on 14 March 1874, the University were the victors by 2 goals to 0. His brother Herbert played for the opposition, he made his debut for the England football team on 6 March 1875 again at The Oval, in a game against Scotland, which finished 2–2. His brother Herbert won his only cap alongside him in this fixture.

This was the first occasion. As a referee, he was awarded the 1876 FA Cup Final between the Wanderers and Old Etonians at The Oval, undecided when the first match ended 1–1 after extra time on 11 March 1876. Wanderers triumphed 3–0 in the replay on 18 March 1876. On 3 March 1877, he was honoured with the captaincy of the international side, once more against Scotland, once again at The Oval, in a match which the Scots won 3–1, he collected just the two international caps for England. He was on the losing side in the 1877 FA Cup Final – the match at The Oval on 24 March was won by the Wanderers by 2 goals to 1 against Oxford University. During his career he played for Old Westminsters F. C. and Wanderers. He served on the FA committee from 1876 to 1877 and again in 1879. At the 1881 Census, Rawson was a schoolmaster, lodging in Bridge Street, Brecnock St. David, Wales, he next joined the family electrical engineering business that became Mabor Ltd, of which he was managing director by 1903. In 1891 Rawson married Alice Maud Fife, an author under the name of Maud Stepney Rawson.

Fantasy Games Unlimited

Fantasy Games Unlimited is a publishing house for tabletop and role-playing games. The company relies on submitted material from outside talent. Founded in the summer of 1975 in Jericho, New York by Scott Bizar, the company's first publications were the wargames Gladiators and Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age. Upon the sudden appearance and massive popularity of Dungeons & Dragons from TSR, the company turned its attentions to role-playing games, seeking out and producing systems created by amateurs and freelancers. Rather than focusing on any one line and supporting it with subsequent supplements, FGU produced a continuous stream of new games; because of the disparate authors, the rules systems were mutually incompatible. FGU Incorporated published dozens of different role-playing games. Fantasy Games Unlimited won the All Time Best Ancient Medieval Rules for 1979 H. G. Wells Award at Origins 1980 for Sorcery. In 1991, Fantasy Games Unlimited Inc. was dissolved as a New York corporation. Bizar continues to publish in Arizona.

A new FGU website appeared in July 2006 offering the company's back catalog. It said that new products would be "coming soon". New Aftermath! products began to appear in 2008. By 2010 much of the company's back catalog was available. At that time FGU was seeking submissions to allow the publication of new adventures for some of their existing titles Aftermath!, Space Opera, Villains and Vigilantes.
