While I love Mark Hamill's Joker, I'd like to have heard Curry's voice overs.
I keep hearing this is a fun series. I need to watch it.

I've given that some serious thought. I may do it, now. I'm a big fan of skills and using them in game.
I've always tried to maintain that they are extremely rare and their appearance is wondrous or disastrous depending on the type. In 30 years of game mastering I've probably thrown less than a dozen dragons at my players.
In another thread someone said they only have one representative dragon of the chromatic and metallic "true" dragons, using drakes and wyverns as more common encounters. I really like this idea, and think I'll adopt it for my homebrew. The 10 classic dragons are near mythical and haven't been seen in centuries. No one knows if they even truly exist anymore or if they do, where they are or what their agendas are.
So how do you treat dragons in your campaigns? Are they common or rare? Do they interact with the lesser races, either benignly or malignantly? What are their agendas, if any? I'd love to hear about them.
My son again - (I only have the one child) - was playing with the adults one night when he was about 9 or 10. Granted, by now he knew about the birds and the bees but not all the terminology. Just as the BBEG fight starts, his mom calls and wants to talk to him. I tell him to hurry because we're at the climax of the game. He takes the phone and says, "Can't talk now. We're climaxing!". Cue dead silence among the players for about 2 seconds before everyone collapses in hysterics. His mom then has to explain to him what he said could mean.

Awesome pic! Thanks!
I remember the first time the PCs encountered them. They were told to be wary of the bands of "horsemen" on the plains they had to cross. They never suspected they would encounter "horse men". I was pelted with dice and garbage for that little pun.. lol
My son was about 6 or so and went as The Grim Reaper one year for Halloween. He was not coached in what to say or how to act, but he "glided" down the hallways of the building where were going door to door and when he'd knock on the door he'd hold up a skull-shaped plastic bucket w/out saying a word. When they put candy in he'd intone "You have been spared", and then glide down to the next door. Before going out he was also concerned over what sort of shoes Death should wear.
My game has been so laid back the last few years that we probably wouldn't be able to play with most other folks. Most of the time the LONG TIME veteran players still wait until they cast the spell to look up summoned creatures or even wait until it's their turn to look up the spell they want to cast or the power they want to use. Yeah, it's frustrating, but in our case it's not worth the trouble to point out. Now when I'm actually being a player in someone else's game (which almost never happens because I'm always the GM) I do my best to be ready when it's my turn. And I print off several different summoned creatures to keep with my character sheet just in case I need to refer to something.
Continuing with near-death scrapes of Swedish kings: After the Battle of Narva, when king Karl XII went to change into something presumably less blood and gunpowder smelling, it was discovered that a bullet had hit him during the battle, but had been stopped by his cravatte.
So that's why Fred from the Scooby Doo cartoons wears one...
LOL I could've done that, and nearly did. But they clearly out-witted me and I wasn't going to take it away from them. Besides, we were more in the mood for food at the time, I think.. lol

183. Put on a belt that somebody has told them is magical, then immediately check their bust size to make sure nothing changed.
When I first began playing D&D back in the 1e days, my 18 CHA Antipaladin put on a belt that changed him to a woman. My DM, who was a classic male chauvinist pig, thought this would make me angry. I laughed and said, "Cool. Hot evil women always get their way." He was disappointed and changed me back.
