Hey Folks.

Just wanted to let you know that my FLGS, Graphic Novelty, is going to be hosting a home brewed Pathfinder Campaign set in Taldor, as well as hosting Pathfinder Society games.

It starts this Wednesday, Nov.4 6pm, and will be continuing every Wednesday, every week.

So if you're in the area, come on down to Graphic Novelty. It's at 1712 Thames St. Baltimore MD 21231. That's in Fell's Point, for all you locals. If you've got any questions, call us. Our phone number's 410-522-0215.

Hope to see you there.

Whatsup y'all.

Describing RPG rules as "elegant" is my new pet peeve. I don't know when it started exactly, but it really irritates me.

RPG rules are never elegant. They can be simple. They can be easy to grasp. But they can't be described as elegant.

Fred Astaire could be described as elegant. A Vera Wang gown could be described as elegant. But not RPG rules.

It just annoys me when I see people say stuff like "The new snaeak attack rules are so elegant". Also, it bugs me when people describe anything that isn't a mechanical rule as "fluff".

Fluff is a porn term. It has nothing to with RPGs.

Granted, in the grand scheme of things, these are very, very, minor concerns. But they still bug me.

In conclusion, please stop using the words elegant and fluff when discussing RPGs. And while you're at it, I'd appreciate a moratorium on the word "Gish".

Thanks in advance,
Your friend in gaming goodness,
Hazel Monday

Please get Mike Kortes to write a Pathfinder adventure. His work is jaw droppingly awesome. That is all.
