I guess the dice manufacturers will no have to include:

> Best if used by dates.
> Expiration dates.
> Tamper Resistant & Freshness seals.
> Dice interaction information.
> Emergency information if taken internally.
> First Aid information if stepped upon.
> Warning list of possible side effects of using bad dice.
> Information on the proper disposal of old/contaminated dice.
> National Dice Information Hotline Number.
> Information on whether dice need to be refrigerated or stored out of direct sunlight.

All of this will need to be included on all dice packages and the dies themselves, perhaps using microdots.

I would definitely feel safer knowing that my dice came with such important information.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Dice.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the character in the Rings movies. But I just didn't see a need for him in this trilogy.

I love this movie. It's one of the few on Netflix I've watched more than once.

This. I've gone as much as a year because of real life stuff.

I've given this some thought (likely more than it deserves) but if I can suspend my disbelief in order to accept beings that use an invisible energy to augment their abilities or do other amazing things I can suspend it for a lightsaber with quillons.

Sorry if I was unclear. I thought this was about gaming pet peeves. A DM who does this is a pet peeve.

I'm trying to not be overly excited by it. It looks great and I did get a bit misty eyed when the fanfare kicked in. But I was very excited by the teaser and trailers for "Phantom Menace" and we all know how it and the subsequent movies in the prequels turned out. I want to love the new movie. I just hope I do.

I have sunk a boat. On purpose. And I've seen a PC tell a frightened child a bedtime story.

But as for me, I've never DM/GM'd for a group higher than 13th level.

I've never played a character beyond 13th level.

I don't like "anything goes" games. I've quit games run by other people because nothing was a challenge. Nothing. Want a magic sword? Just go buy one for like 50gp because the magic shop owner has a surplus of them. Want to know a new spell? Well, here's a magic device that has every spell ever devised in it. For free. Want to play some really weird race or a monster with levels? No problem!

I find it neither ridiculous or great. It's just a different light saber.

My son started with 3.0 at 6 and caught on right away. It's fine to start them off with a simpler system, but don't sell them short. They're often a lot smarter and more savvy than we realize!

That's where I got it, where they were voted "Fake Number 1 Metal Band". I think they deserve more love than that.

Bassist Joey DeMaio, bassist for the Heavy Metal band Manowar, was born Joseph Eleuthère Hellmann IV, of the Connecticut Hellmanns. He is the sole heir to the Hellmann’s mayonnaise fortune — thus, his stage name, an affectionate moniker bestowed upon him by his mother’s close friend, Truman Capote, in 1978.

I'm pretty sure I would have laughed myself to death. That poor kid.

What made it even funnier was during his moment of silence and our floor-rolling laughter his mom had him take the phone into the kitchen and then explained to him what the statement usually refers to. He came back in the living room and sat very quietly, red faced in embarrassment for a few minutes, but to his credit he got back into the game and recovered his composure.

I have never once in all my 29 years of gaming seen anyone get into a screaming match table pounding, wall hitting, or table flipping. I've seen disagreements and people get a bit heated over something, but stories about the former just boggle my mind.

EDIT: I just remembered a screaming match between some Chinese kids at a local FLGS during a Yu-Gi-Oh game. Cards were flying everywhere.

I may have already posted this, but I can't recall if I have.

My son was 10 at the time and playing along with the grownups. The game had come to the BBEG fight, and it was nearing a pretty exciting end. At that moment his mom calls and I tell him to keep it short because we're at the climax of the game. He answers and says loudly, "Can't talk, Mom. We're climaxing!". He had no idea what the term is usually used for. There was a moment of silence on his part as we collapsed in hysterics.

On a serious side, it introduced me to the Egyptian pantheon of gods and helped foster my current interest in all things ancient Middle East. It boosted my already expansive vocabulary, it taught me the value of teamwork and to question what is good and evil. It also made me weird friends who've been with me for 30 years.

That my friends are weird.

I have gotten lazy. I used to read every rulebook cover to cover, knew almost every monster from monster books, read through every module I ran.

Now I just don't have the willpower to.

I've not gotten especially lazy, but I've developed some problems that interfere with concentration and memory and it's too frustrating to try and read and remember things now. And not things as complicated as Pathfinder; anything, really.

Ok. This thing is bloody hilarious!

I'd make it a climb check vs the dragon's CMD.

Using Rite Publishing's "101 New Skill Uses" it would be done thusly:

"Against a larger opponent, you grab
hold of its belt, armor, scales, horned plates, or other
footholds to scramble up its body and attack. Against a
creature that is at least two size categories larger than
you are, you may make a Climb check as a standard
action (DC 10 + opponent’s BAB)."

I had a 1e character once say OUT OF CHARACTER a word that would cause instant death. The DM said it didn't matter, that it "transcended realities" and no matter who said the word would die, even if someone in another dimension said it, such as my "alter ego in this universe". I believe that was the last game I ever played with him as DM.

I also have the 3.5 edition of Expedition to Castle Ravenloft. After this game I'm going to convert it and run it for the group using Pathfinder rules.

I have this and would love to run it, but my guys just don't seem to enjoy module type games. I also have "Expedition to the Demonweb Pits" and "Expedition to Castle Greyhawk". I only recently discovered "Expedition to Undermountain" and now I can't find it for less than fortune. I'd love to run them all.

I now end my slight derail and return you to your thread.

"Oops, seems I just woke the vampire we were supposed to be killing while he slept in his coffin". Not an exact quote, but I did that.

I played that module once and had a blast all the way through it.

I'd love to see Genius Guides to Force Magic and Sonic Magic, two energies that seem overlooked by a lot of publishers.

As my gift I'd like Advanced Options: Slayer's Talents and Lethalities.

Thanks for all the hard work you and the rest of your motley lot put into making such wonderful products!

Without player input, my world would be a much less exciting place to play.

Earlier I said it had become more like a habit, and to a large degree that's true. It's the one hobby I have left that I truly enjoy, and I'd miss it terribly if for any reason I stopped playing.

I love the fellowship of good friends, the hair raising action of a well described and well played scene in a game, and the escape from my often less than satisfactory real life.

When, after a year of game/real time, the former lover of the ranger in the party returned as a wight because he swore he would "love her beyond life". She had to kill her ex-lover to save her own life. The party never saw that little surprise coming because the year before he'd sacrificed himself to let them escape a horde of undead.

It's become a habit after 29 years.. lol.

Yeah, it's broken. But I still think there's a bit of sense left in it. We just have to vote for the ones we think will listen to it. I voted on Monday.

And you didn't just put all the exploding teddies against the door as an improvised breaching charge because?

We tried that. The DM didn't allow it. We had to find the key.

Nearly everything Thulsa Doom said in the original "Conan" movie.

Then there's the one where any race was allowed to the heroes thanks to the Savage Species splatbook, the Yuan-ti attempt to take over the world while both sides fought against each other and interdimensional Nazis. I will plead the Fifth on who wrote this one.

My DM once used the old Mastermind game as the means for figuring out how to open a door to escape from a white dragon that was looking for us (For those who don't know it's a game where you have to guess what combination of 6 colors belong in 4 slots. You have 10 attempts, if I recall).

I just remembered that the night after we buried my dad my mom said he came to visit her. He was dressed the way he was when they first met, and was young. He told her everything was going to be ok. Until her dying day she believed he'd really been there, and she was one not given to belief in the supernatural normally.

If you want to debate the existence of supernatural entities, you need to start a new thread. Keep in mind that we do not tolerate threads created to mock or bait other users.

Thank you!

Yeah, but if you can't afford the Crown Royal that comes in them, you have to have other solutions. I have a few CR bags, but they were given to me by friends. Just the bags. Dammit.

Admittedly my views are tarnished by a series of books I didn't like one bit and the way I've seen kender played ever. single. time.
