Nah, ain't nobody got time to read that. I'll wait for the inevitable lackluster Will Ferrell movie adaptation.

{sings (badly):} "...It's the Leafar of the Lossssssssssst!"

Using "lackluster" and "Will Ferrell movie adaptation" in the same sentence is nearly always redundant.

I believe the correct term is, "A passion of succubi."

If it's not the correct term, it should be.

Bordegga Will save: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17 <-- Get back, Loretta! :-)

Davosh eyes the troll, but she shrugs off his hex!
She does not shrug off Vojtek's blade, however!
Ali is less fortunate — her attack does not find its mark!

Some of the gash Vojtek's blade inflicted closes up, and Bordegga, a massive battleaxe in her hand, five-foots back and is only too happy to introduce to return the favor to the barbarian by way of full attack!

battleaxe: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18
damage: 2d6 + 4 ⇒ (6, 4) + 4 = 14

bite: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 2 = 18
damage: 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7

claw: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6

GM stuff:

Kappi, Edward!

While not necessarily written better, Mikaze's is more succinct than Sutter's, and made me laugh out loud. But then, I'm easy. :-)

My suggestion that we take the train back instead and spend the next several days hanging out in the dining car, playing the games we bought at Gen Con and solving the inevitable murder mystery was not met with much approval. :(

You are supposed to wear the shirt, and if you have a folio you are supposed to have it filled out, and on the table.

The idea here is marketing.

Not quite right. The folio has to be on the table, but it doesn't have to be filled out (cite: Mike Brock, in this post).

(I usually bring an extra one, still in the shrinkwrap, to lend out to new players if I'm playing at a low-level table).

Shirts do have to be 'worn', but some leeway is expected. Nobody wants to sit next to the guy wearing his one and only eligible shirt for the fourth straight day at a convention.

+1 to all of this (I do the same with my sealed folio).

One of my temporary players made a stupid remark, but some people are just stupid.

Well, let's be fair: there's stupidity, but there's also ignorance.

I recommend carrying heavy reference books for either occasion.

There's some truth to this, but also a chance for growth.

I know that personally, thinking back on things I and those around me said regularly when we were adolescents and teenagers, I still shake my head at the breadth of ignorance we showed. At the same time, I like to think I'm not that person anymore (nor do I any longer choose to keep people who still use those words around me), so hopefully I've taken those lessons and tried to apply them in my life instead of staying ignorant. And I certainly hope I've passed that down to my stepchildren so that they don't use those words either

Bingo. And you won't be the only one who has the epiphany.

Crystal, you've achieved something special here. You're leading people around corners - absolutely brilliant work.

Yes that is why I asked the questions

Not to be obtuse
Not to be contrary
But because I want to learn and overcome misconceptions I do not not even necessarily realize that I had in the first place

Yeah, I just meant for price comparisons its the same content as eight of the usual flip mats.

The $55 price tag compares well with 8x$9 but a casual reader might think its worth 16x$9 which is an overstatement of the discount.
