Re: Favorite magic items

1. Cloak of the Bat used by my AD&D magic-user back in the day. 2. Stealth Suit used by my AD&D thief back in the day. The suit masked body heat so that the thief was invisible to infravision and granted +5% to the Hide in Shadows and Move Silently abilities. The suit was a silk like cloth worn unde...

Re: Playing with Evil Characters

Many years ago I played an evil PC in a campaign that lasted a little over 5 years. The party included several neutral PCs, two good aligned PCs (one of which I was able to convince to change his alignment over the years of the campaign), and my PC. Even with the wide variety of alignments, our part...

Re: Origins... who's going?

I attended Origins in 2010 and 2011 then hit Gen Con in 2012 - 2014 and Gary Con ever since. Wouldn't mind hitting Origins again one of these days but Gary Con just has so much Old School goodness compared to every other con that i don't know when it would happen.

Re: FLGS Update

I guess I'm pretty lucky that there are two FLGSs within 10 minutes of me. One is more comics focused but does carry RPG stuffs, dice, etc and the other is more board and card game focused with a decent amount of RPG items. I make sure to visit both regularly and contribute to business when possible.
