Is the Troll's mailbox broken?

<t>I sent off 2 e-mails concerning the castle builder book Friday afternoon PST. The first being smaller as it was just text. Regardless, both bounced. I've been editing about 50 pages a week as I get paperwork out of the way so I can finalize my transfer to UC Irvine. I know that the Trolls would a...

<t>Heh, my Rules Cyclopedia is so old and worn, I'm surprised I can still run games with it. The cover is so frayed that I've had to use clear packing tape to hold it together. The cover for the spine fell off years ago, but it's also "protected" with the tape. I'm running my friends through a tribu...

<t>I started a tribute campaign using the D&D Rules Cyclopedia and the world of Mystara. My friends love it. I've also developed a non-collectible card game. It took me 5 days to do the rough draft. School and work has eaten the rest of the time. I prefer it that way. Especially given how hard i...

Have you or any of your traveling companions ever dropped a weapon?

Was this done in such a way as to cause injury to someone else?

Did that injury cause others to fail to complete an action?

Were any of those failures injurious to other companions?
