Seconding, thirding, or whatever that Fenryll stuff. Now that's new to me. And they are very nice. I might have to make some room for those in my gaming budget.

My DM has the idol, that I've seen. And it looks even better in real life, painted by a master, and built into a base.

Well, I was less than thrilled with the idea of C&C at first, but, look at me now.
And Rifts looks a lot better to me now than it used to.

Dragonstar. Star Wars D20.

Both were disappointments.

Any climate. Too often every world is temperate and calm, with soft lovely rain every once in a while.

But my preferences are for high desert or frozen northlands.

OK, I was hoping I wasn't the only one that didn't know this, but apparently I am - What is a caller?

<t>Not exactly. We do have a mapper, but the DM does not make us keep such details in the thick of things. It's not THAT hard to remember your way around. Just because I don't have real world visual cues doesn't mean my character loses his way. It's given that characters are not completely blind to ...

<t>I buy almost nothing online as far as books or dice go. I prefer to support the two fine local establishments I am lucky to have. However, I occasionally do a trade with NKG to get rid of stuff I no longer want, and I occasionally browse the want-ads at various forums. And as far as minis go, the...

<t>Very few groups I've played with have ended up with a party name. The last one was three years ago, and we were "The Heroes of Maissen".

No wonder all those "cure tumor" spells kept bouncing (and very likely why I kept craving a chili dog for some strange reason)!

Yeah, right. And MY character wasn't wearing an onion on his head either, you'll be saying next.
