When I finish this current campaign, I'm really thinking about a classic "European" style campaign world. But even now I don't allow anthropomorphic animal races, so I'm already partially there. Of course, it'll be at least another year before this current campaign ends, so I have time to think about it.
There was one several years ago nearby where the guy who owned was just a rude bastard. I went in more than once and had to wait for him to stop farting around on AOL chat before he'd pay me or any of the other customers any attention. When "The Book of Vile Darkness" came out I went in to buy 2 copies (one for me and a friend). He didn't even look up from his chat and told me the boxes had just arrived and I could open them myself and look for the books on my own. I left and never went back.
Sounds like so many of my games!

Ack, that's terrible Cal. I feel your pain. I have a ton of stuff on my DVR. That would suck to lose. Anything AT&T can do to help?
No, there's nothing they can do. I even called them this morning, spoke with a guy who had a barely legible Eastern European accent, and the end result is they're sending me a new set top box. But Sundakan has a good idea. Hulu Plus free trial, here I come!
I enjoy the story telling and world building. I do homebrew campaigns only, and along with the help of my players we build wonderful, imaginative worlds.
I don't always care for the game prep, as I've been the GM/DM for 95% of the time for 30 years now, but it turns out to be worth it if my players have a good time and look forward to the next session. Sure, I'd love to be a player much more often, but as long as we keep having fun I'll keep doing what I'm doing.
My DVR went belly up last night and when I got it working again this morning I'd discovered I'd lost over 30 hours of recordings. "Arrow", "Agents of SHIELD", "Legends of Tomorrow", "Jurassic World" and other movies...all gone. I am NOT happy with AT&T Uverse and their diabolic devices at the moment.
"Curses! Foiled again!", he babbled.
I have to say the two FLGS' I frequent are nothing like this. The owners and staff are right there for the customers as soon as they walk in the door. The other two that I know of but haven't visited have the same level of customer service from what I've been told by friends who patronize them. I guess we just got lucky in that department.
Ok, here's the deal. On double damage (or triple, etc) we've rolled the dice the requisite number of times and added the usual bonuses (STR and Magic bonuses to weapon damage, though not counting the extra damage such as from Bane weapons) the same number of times equal to the number of dice rolled. Have I been doing this wrong all these years? As I understand the rule that is what happens. A player and I got into a discussion about it and I was wondering if I could get some clarification. Thanks.
Here's the rule as written:
"A critical hit means that you roll your damage more than once, with all your usual bonuses, and add the rolls together. "
That sounds interesting. I'll check it out. Thanks!
Freehold, you know about Star Trek: Phase II and Star Continues, right? I am very curious about your opinion, and will provide links if necessary. :)
I'm a huge fan of Star Trek Continues, but Phase II hasn't really lived up to its reputation. They'll throw continuity out an airlock in favor of what they hope will be a good story (I won't spoil anything in case someone is interested in watching it). But ST:C is far and away my favorite, despite the guy play Spock. He does a good job, but his voice grates on my every nerve.
I feel your pain, M.D. I love playing dungeon crawls. That's how I started out and would love to play in one again. My players aren't fond of them, however. I've also been the primary DM/GM for 30 years now, and get to be a player maybe 4 times a year, though that has picked up a *little* this year.
So shake your fist and rail at the heavens. I'm right there with you in solidarity.

I feel the same way. I'm barely affording what I have now, and adding another pay service is something I just can't put in my budget. Looks like I'll be missing this one.
I "resurrected" the Glassteel spell for my PF games. There's a nation that awards glassteel weapons to its elite warriors. They don't have any special qualities save their rareness and the honor they bestow upon the bearer.
Ya know, it just occurred to me they should at least be masterwork weapons so the user could have them enchanted if he/she wanted to. Sometimes my thought processes run pretty slowly.
