Todd Martinez and Linda Cerullo are graphic arts students in Long
BerJch, California in 1989.

Playfully sketching

fantasy scenes in the cafeteria one

day, they notice a cluster of children admiring their work, and explain that they are developing a game in which fantasy creatures do battle with each other.

The

children are fascinated.
Entrepreneurial

instinct takes over:

Martinez and Cerullo copyright their

creatures and the game rules they concoct,

and begin marketing it under the name

"Creed of the Sorcerer," or "Creed," for short. to produce the game in quantity,

They find they need some money

and they persuade Martinez'

uncle (Nick

Rodriguez) and Cerullo's older sister (Agnes DiBlasi) each to invest $5,000, understanding on the

that all profits from the business will be shared equally among the

four participants.

(At no point is any formal agreement among the participants

prepared.)
By mid-1990,

the game is a big hit in the Long Beach area, and Rodriguez

suggests that an effort be made to expand the business into new geographic areas. The other participants

concur, so Rodriguez gets in touch with two of his

friends (one in Anaheim and the other in San Diego) and persuades them to develop and market Creed in their home towns based on a $5,000 investment from each.

They, too, are quite successful,

cash

and by June 1991,

Martinez and Cerullo are delighted that their one-sixth shares of profit (profit now being divided among all six participants)

are sufficient

to pay'for their entire tuition.

Rodriguez is delighted, too, and begins to take an even more active role in
