    Found the exact reference in 3e Monster Manual II -- Automatons, pg 27-28.

    Still working on my reply to your long post above, have not abandoned the discussion.

    E: I pulled the post out so I can work on it a bit at a time as I get the opportunity -- with only some of my responses typed it's already 7 pages of single-spaced 10 pt text.

    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.
