Re: People sure don't read...

Treebore, I feel your pain. I've been selling a lot of stuff on eBay lately, and all my (usually short) listings include a blurb (in large, friendly letters no less) about saving money by combining shipping. And every week I receive messages asking me if I combine shipping. Reminds me of the first "...

Re: Neil Gaimon on Copywrite Piracy & The Web

Lou Anders of Pyr Books was on the latest I Should Be Writing podcast, and he talked about that Neil Gaimon video (among many other things--entertaining fellow). He suspects Gaimon would get different results running his American Gods experiment today. Three years ago ebooks were a teaser to get peo...

I used to work in a place where an oldies station was piped into every room. Believe me, I eagerly awaited Neil Diamond in the rotation, because he did rock (relatively speaking).

But wouldn't most of that be drowned out by the sound of DP cans depressurizing?

I envision Keanu Reeves circa Bill &Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Wait, that's Tim Benzedrine from Bored of the Rings. My bad.

Re: Nintendo DS -- Preferred RPGs?

The Fire Emblem titles are my top pick for the GBA. Tactical RPGs. (I'm currently replaying Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance on the GameCube.)

Re: Religion in FRPG

I've often been annoyed with polytheistic games worlds where everyone picks their one god to follow. But that said, I wouldn't want it to always go the other way. After all, we've only seen religion evolve on one planet, and that one only has one sentient species. Run the experiment a few times and ...

Re: The Snow Watch

I moved north so I could enjoy the snow, but now most of the big storms pass to the south of me. :(

Re: C&C Trial at my game table

Rogues in combat. That's the one that bothers me most. If you want to be in combat...be a fighter or a paladin, or a knight. Why choose a rogue for battle? The argument is that there is nothing for them to do during combat. Not so. I ran a thief in an AD&D campaign that loved combat and was always ...

I'm thinking if some of the suggestions being made don't help, it's time for, "If you guys want to stick with Pathfinder, okay, but I'm tired of running it. Someone else needs to GM."

Re: Punny Character Names

I had an NPC by the name of Lewis Cipher. It was actually meant as a warning, but the players missed it.

Re: Kicking around a new idea

We used spell slots for several years in AD&D, and it's my preferred approach (although I never came up with a good in-game reason why magic works that way). I like seeing those rarely memorized spells get used, and it allows the clerics to avoid evil looks for not loading up on healing. We had two ...

Re: Ideas for the Fighter

I have very fond memories of a Fighter I played with an Intelligence prime. He wasn't optimized for TEH FIGHTING, but he proved to immensely valuable to the party as a whole. This had me thinking about an AD&D elven fighter I played years ago. Dexterity was his defining characteristic, and charisma...
