I'm glad WotC didnt renew the license to publish Dungeon and Dragon magazines.


I've been playing this game longer than most of you have been alive. I still have fun doing it. All of my games are Homebrew, even the ones that aren't. There isn't anything that has been posted in this thread that I could get worked up about.

Sovereign Court

I just want to say that maybe if folks didn't express against the grain opinions in rude and condescending ways they might not get shunned.

I gleefully embrace my title of "the worst kind of slytherin". Cuz that kid should have been dealt with in the first book.
I'm more baffled at how anyone could hate Alton Brown. Alton Brown is awesome!!!

I didn't know who Alton Brown is until I googled him just now. And now I'm reminded that I still can't imagine why people watch the food network.

It's like a cocktease for the stomach.

Nope. All four LotR movies put me to sleep faster than four Benadryl washed down with a bottle of Nyquil.

At first I thought it was just Orlando Bloom boring me to sleep, but then I fell asleep during the Hobbit...

I miss prestige classes. I liked working up to a prestige class in 3.5.

One of my friends described Tolkien himself as very dry, and I thought it was accurate. I have a friend who can watch the extended versions of every movie in one sitting, I can barely watch one in one sitting myself.

Aye, I miss a sense of accomplishment and thrill of getting something unique. Wasn't a big fan of prereqs in hind sight, but when I finally got that first level in a PrC it felt pretty awesome.

I have never encountered anything in the game that I thought was truly broken.

I like the way Paizo designs NPCs and Iconics (purposefully non-optimized).

I hate Monks with the fury of a thousand suns. I've hated them in every edition of the game. I think the entire concept of the Monk class is ridiculous.

I also dislike all the Eastern and pseudo-Oriental stuff and all the drama it brings (katanas the greaterest swords ever invented!).

I think the Off-Topic Forum is a cesspit.

I only read the Rules forum because I like to watch people have meltdowns over the silliest of rules.

Hey, if a frenetic minute-long, goblin chase scene is exciting cinema, twenty minutes must be really exciting!

A friend and I have been talking about a one-day LotR extended-edition marathon for years, but it hasn't happened yet. And I'm not sure whether I'm disappointed at losing the potential geek milestone, or relieved that I have enough of a life to make it impractical.

...On second thought, it's definitely the second one. Probably.


Every barbarian I play is a Conan clone complete with a (badly) drawn portrait painstakingly traced from a Frank Frazetta cover (warning: NSFW).

Also, every character that I play is a barbarian.

Here's one I've seen cause contention on boards.

I host the game. This is not a dinner, this is not a BBQ, this is a game session. I will not cook a meal or provide snacks. Everybody brings what they want to eat, and it works just fine that way.

As a group we can always pool money for Pizza or chips though.


If by the end of the third session there isn't one character sheet with a pizza sauce stain, I have failed as a DM

I own the animated version of The Hobbit on VHS.

Another one I thought of as I read the 6 pages of posts since I last checked in here...

I like D&D/Pathfinder's objective morality/alignment. None of that silly modern "there is no black or white, only shades of grey" carp.

I've played in games where that was an accepted mechanic.


I have never watched or read LotR or The Hobbit because the premise just doesn't interest me.

I absolutely adore anachronisms in settings.

Arguments that rely on selective verisimilitude infuriate me.

I think dwarves and elves would be cooler if people tried playing them in different ways.

I don't like the trope in fantasy that humans have to be the most populous race and always the jack of all trades, capable of more variety in culture and personality than any other race.

I think people on this board fall for obvious bait way too easily.

Fudge is disgusting.

I have watched all 3 extended versions in a single sitting. And I will probably do the same with the 3 Hobbit movies. Now, I don't think I will be able to watch all 6 in a single sitting, as I can't stay awake for 24 hours (LotR extended come out to about 11 or 12 hours, I am sure the Hobbit ones will be the same).

I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous or your accomplishment.

At risk of being beaten with sticks:

-I reinstated SoD spells, as well as experience costs for crafting magic items and casting Wish.

-I don't use the WPL rules.

-I replaced the base Golarion gnomes with the Dragonlance Tinker Gnomes (though in all honesty, I also did this with 3e/3.5).

-I don't really like the way elves are portrayed in the game.

-I think the game's art is very well excecuted, but save for a handful of exceptions, I don't like it. Then again, my idea of the perfect D&D-style art is that of AD&D 2e, so take my evaluation with a grain of salt.

-I actually like the Alignment and Vancian Casting systems a lot.

I think it was something like a dollar a plus? Thiswas back in second ed and in high school btw. Money was hard to come by.

Too beautiful for your eyes.


As much as I play Pathfinder, I don't care much for the D20 system.

As for Pathfinder itself, I really don't like it's bewildering level of complexity. Way too many fiddly bits for me.

For the record, most people don't have a problem with this. I can't say for sure, not knowing you, of course, but what I typically find as a liberal atheist is that gaming tends to transcend those barriers. I've played with people of various political and religious stripes and we've enjoyed each other's company just fine. (Also "straight" is on your list? Like 90% of us are straight, bro. We just have the good sense to act gay in public.)

When somebody feels ostracized it's much more likely they're just obnoxious. I find it's more like people want to air their more odious opinions---things that are derogatory, homophobic, or sexist---and then claim intolerance from the other side when they're called on it. It happens all the time in (American) politics, too. Some jerk will say something incredibly offensive about women or gays, and then when the rest of us are legitimately disgusted by it, they claim we just hate white Conservative heterosexual Christian males. (Even if you happen to meet 4 of 5 of those qualifiers.)

The confession "I don't like the gay lifestyle" is what's going to get one ostracized.

(ugh i cant believe i actually typed the words "gay lifestyle")

I have done the same...and have watched all the Marvel's Phase one movies (Iron Man, Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers) all in one sitting.

I plan on doing a Hobbit/LotR weekend when I can.

I'm pretty sure that confession was tongue in cheek.

Personally, I like moderation in moderation. I think the Paizo mods are fairly even-handed, though I recently wrote a post and then thought "That was flag-worthy?" when it disappeared a day later. Can't remember what it was though.

My favorite lvls are 1 to 5. After that i lose interest, i blame the power creep.

While I appreciate Tolkien for putting down the stepping stones of fantasy, i find him uninteresting as a person and his writing drab and boring. The movies are over-rated and the Hobbit was downright appaling.

4e had some incredibly good ideas, too bad it was so boring to play.

Every time I see a driver turn or change lane without using his turn signal, i seethe inside.

I went and created an account and browsed the board a bit and frankly I couldn't find a single thing that I thought was worth commenting on. Mostly what I saw seemed like a lot of edition wars, 4e bashing, PF bashing, and Dnd Next bashing.

Lots of... well... bashing.

If there's something worth visiting there, it eluded my first look.

Oh, and if they did try to run me out on a rail TOZ, I might just leave on my own, but if I wanted to stay, they could ban me I suppose, but I don't know what I could say that would warrant banning.

The only times I've ever been banned from any site in the interwebz is when I made my opinion of the moderators and moderating clear. :)

Hmm... since it takes two to argue that would seem to be a self-critical comment there Tri...

Besides, they can't be "endless" since we're not currently engaged in one. Unless this becomes one...

I think evil races and evil acts are evil for a reason.

Because otherwise you are playing traveling murder hobos.

I think 99% of the people who want to play "good" drow were people who are deeply attention starved and the 1% who actually can pull it off hate the other 99% for ruining it for them.

I think finding an interesting angle on an old trope is 1000 times more interesting than an absurd concept being forced into the setting, and I would rather play with a boring player with a done to death concept than a snowflake player with a concept that is screaming "LOOK AT ME!" constantly.

I think the GM should rule, and the players should either trust them enough to go along to see where it is going, or revolt en masse between session and appoint a new ruler to run a new campaign, because life is too short to waste 4 to 6 hours on milk toast games.

I believe that sometimes your character dying is the best thing that can happen in a campaign. And I believe if you don't think your GM will do it, the game is not nearly as interesting.

I believe in things making sense, and in GM's following decisions to logical consequences.

I believe Paladins should strive to be paragons, and temptation is not a trap.

And most of all I believe bad GM's and bad players find each other, because none of the rest of us are putting up with that crap.

I really liked the movie Willow.

I've only ever called into work sick once and I wasn't really sick. Errol Flynn's Robin Hood was on followed by the Last Starfighter and I was out of vacation days.

Whenever Dune is on I have to watch it. All of it.

I bawl like a baby whenever I hear Puff the Magic Dragon.

I own a guinea pig named Corpsegrinder. I had hoped naming it Corpsegrinder would make it a less lame animal to own, but no, it's still pretty lame.

I think The Last Dragon is the pinnacle of American cinema, which should rightfully invalidate all my views on any form of entertainment.

In a survival situation my only use would be as a source of protein for the people that actually have applicable skills.

Another confession, I was actually raised on a large amount of Seinen anime and I refuse to make a character anything other than knightly out of a long tradition and habit. My barbarian is a knight, my druid is a knight, even my wizard is a knight.
