Re: Touch Spells: That round, or the next?

I think it is suicide for a wizard, especially a low level one with little protection, to attempt a touch attack. That being said, I would rule he had to be close enough to deliver the touch when casting the spell. No movement would be possible during casting.

Re: Keeping a group of 8 moving

Once my players roll for initiative, I let the order stand for the duration of the battle, unless someone does something drastic that would make them drop in order. I let the players roll first, and then I roll for the monsters as a group.

Re: Favorite Gary Gygax module?

I'd have to say Steading of the Hill Giant Chief. Really shows that teamwork and patience are critical to survival. Had a lot of fun playing this whole series.

Re: What cartoons do you like?

Don't watch cartoons much anymore. My kids used to watch Phineas & Ferb, which was good. My favorites were Bugs Bunny, Johnny Quest, Thundarr, Speed Racer, and going back to the depths of time, an old Japanese classic called Prince Planet.

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

City State of the Invincible Overlord. Played in a campaign back in the '80s that used this briefly, and just got a good deal online for a copy of the boxed set.

Re: Fantasy-themed Metal

Uriah Heep? Haven't thought of them in years. Just added Stealin' to the playlist. Nice!
