Re: Wastage Made simple

OK, I'm slow, "don't do wastage" or "don't make it simple"? My group has great fun when a fumble is rolled or a critical (20 is rolled) using a table or a chart that a CK or the group has made.. its just great fun.. this was a way to tweak those rolls to also move beyond fun odd things and cool ext...

Re: Players Handbook 6th Print

So, after all this discussion about the various PHs and artwork for the covers ~ I forgot to ask y'all. Did the Trolls fix the severely browned out artwork? If so, then I might be interested in picking up a copy. Many thanks! :) Two thumbs way up for this printing! Was disappointed with many pieces...

Re: M&T 4th print

Hmm, I might have to rethink this. :? I think it does look great though the points brought up are certainly valid. However, the coloring for the 6th print of the PHB is far superior to that of the 5th print PHB and the quality in the M&T is consistent with the color quality of the latest PHB which ...

Re: Who's running games at GenCon?

Hey folks!

I'm going to GenCon this year. Still not sure if I will run something or not (official or otherwise). It will also be my honeymoon so I'll have to spend quality time with the wife. ;)

PS -- Honeymoon at GenCon was *her* idea.

I thought that window closed. I was just too lazy to make up the NPC I wanted to do.

If I do get Barnabus all written up where do I s...
