Roy Plotnick stepped up to the plate.  Roy is an invertebrate biologist at the University of Illinois Chicago and a long time friend.  His research is amazing and looks at the fossil record to determine shifts in behaviour and sensory organs through time.  Roy also discovered a new cave in Illinois that was a treasure trove of fossils.  But all that is moot since Roy is now THE MASTER OF WOOD FALLS.
