Re: Veteran discount...

@Steve,
When were you in Hawaii? I was at Kaneohe USMC base from 91-95, did a bunch of jumps out of Hickham and Pearl to the DZ on Schofield.

@Tree,
I spent a wonderful year at the language school, sorry it didn't work out for you guys.

Re: Avatars?

Seems like the software supports avatars, since there is a Yes/No option to display them in the user control panel. I'll wait and see if additional features are enabled.

Our first Deadlands campaign. One character was an obese guy named "Slim" Chance.

He wasn't the party leader, but was the most recognizable member, so the group somehow ended up being the Fat Chance Gang.

Did you just buy this on ebay?

I was going to snipe it but didn't want to take it away from somebody who hangs out in some of the same places online.
