Merry Christmas. I still have msot of you on my Christmas Card list, but because of how hectic it has been around here, much as last year they will be out late. So if you get a card from me late, well I am sure many know why. Sorry, doing the best I can right now.
Once again I hope you all have a wonderfull holiday season.
It maybe months before I can hope to be on regular again or putting in more than one poorly typed post.

Oh hell no...You can not play the Asperger's card to post as you have on the boards and expect to get away with it. My son is 16 and has more respect and temperament than you have shown on any single post or review I have yet to see. He has full blown Aspergers and knows enough of life and values to edit himself before posting. I feel that you are just using that as an excuse and a crutch. I take it as a personal affront to see people attempting to use that syndrome as an excuse when I see my teen age son take the time to make the effort every day not to be like that.
If you feel that a product is not worth looking at fine say so, but use some tact. When you reply to people on threads please try to edit yourself before hitting submit. You will find most people will be much more polite in return.

Plus it pays better than what I am making now, and to top it off they decided that I had enough experience combined with a good interview to be worth their hiring cap for pay. So I was offered more than what I was initially told the pay would be.
"We're not gonna die. We can't die, Bendis. You know why? Because we are so...very...pretty. We are just too pretty for God to let us die."
"There can be only one", or better yet "It's a kind of magic."

Sounds much like me. Love people hate stupidity. What is one to do?
Couillon - This is pronounced Coo-Yawn with the accent on the 2nd syllable Yawn. The "n" is almost silent. Don't put any drawl on the second syllable. It should be a quick sharp 2nd syllable and nasally sounding. This Cajun word means stupid, idiot or fool. "A village idiot who has lost his village."
C'est sa Couillon - Cajun phrase calling someone a fool "It is a fool". A common act is to thump your niece or nephew with your finger while saying "C'est sa couillion".
I don't get it. Nothing was controversial in that vid. Yet some posters are acting like Chuck has gone bat s&+* insane.
So they quoted Reagan,
Which is why I shall never read Ayn Rand.
Keep in mind these are average encounters. There is nothing wrong with having a EL 1 encounter that becomes nothing but either a speed bump or one in which it is too tough for the party and they have to retreat.
Good game design does not always mean "appropriate levels" for encounters. This can also alleviate the dreaded 15 min adventuring day. Since the PC's will never know the encounter levels.
Keep in mind as well, just because a module is designed a particular way, it does not mean you can't expand upon or modify it for your home games.
