Syria is a horrible mess, even worse than Iraq. You have the following major elements all in one place
-I would only play the concept if the DM agrees my dog can take fighter levels...or maybe barbarian. I would have no ability to use hands...no armor...It's a serious sub-optimal character, but as an animal it would have certain advantages.
-I don't want to be awoken...I want to play lassie...Or snowie. A dog who forms a strong bond with a party member, so for example I have to whine when I smell bad guys, or who has to pull a characters clothing to get their attention.
Insurance and paperwork were in order, and there was no cause for my being stopped, and the expletive-worthy individual addressed me as 'boy'... yet another case of DWB.
-Dear God, you are a better man than me, I would have gotten arrested if I were you...I teach English in China, and one thing I always tell advanced students is NEVER say "Hey Boy" to a black man...They watch hiphop music videos and don't understand you just don't call black men boy unless you want to have small holes punched in you.

Alternatively, you could say that roleplaying has gone too far when you start hallucinating that the monsters are real and then you start calling yourself by your character's name, breaking off with previous relationships that are incompatible with your character's lifestyle, culminating to traveling to the big city on a quest, killing a homeless man, attempting to jump off a skyscraper and getting committed.
Did this happen in your group? Awsome story.
when is society ever on the rise?
The RenaissanceThe Belle Epoque
According to Jacques Barzun, the society was delt a fatal blow by world war I, and has been in a slow decline ever since, and World War II simply hurried it up. Although the technical revolution and PC have provided economic development, no 'movement' in art, politics, or society since the 1960's has had any profound change. The last major event was the civil rights movement in America, and decolonization.
-America is in far greater damage from political apathy, than political oppression. For generations, the most vile, ambitious, amoral individuals have gone "into politics" and created a virtual rule of ivy league lawyers, who create no wealth, but simply make a fortune out of class action law suits, and petty corruption. That this is the class of people who run the US is quite telling...
-Well why? Remember NWN and Baldur's gate? Where you knew you were the HERO! Even from a low level?
-I simply think the economy in the US has to get much worse for people in America do get crazy. Although we had unemployment that was high, we haven't had a perfect paradigm shift like the great depression. Too many people though 'occupy wall street' was jus a neo hippy protest to make pot legal, and people shouted get a job. How anybody could shout get a job, when unemployment in the US is higher than the EU average is bizarre.
-I live in a nameless country that has one of the worst human lefts situations in the world. I am using certain terms so that my post is not observed by certain interested parties. Over in Peking, as I am let's talk about real issues. Granted the US is going in the wrong direction, but let's talk about a few things.
Let's not forget America has quite a bit lower to fall.
Bodelin does pay reverence to the Dwarven panthon as a whole, as he is a pious man, but he dislikes Dranngvit, and Droskar, and excludes them from any worship. He does not single out a particular diety besides Torag, however.
Torag uses his shield when taking arrow fire, when being attacked by a larger, stronger enemy, or when his blows are not connecting, and he needs the extra protection. Against lightly armored, easy to hit foes, he will focus on two handed attacks with his pick.
