GW had independent interest in Moorcock. Chaosium maintained a friendly relationship with GW long after they had dumped every other American relationship. We finally broke up because Brian Ansell wanted to make a UK RPG of Stormbringer, and I told him that Chaosium would be unhappy about that, since we had the US license for the same, and would fight the sale of their game in the US if they did that. Which made GW unhappy, and ended our long relationship.

I'd only say that "Wrong, wrong, wrong" is an understatement.

No. Your sight is right.
