Knight question and a nit

<t>Just to clarify that something was missing from this text block...<br/> <br/> BATTLEFIELD DOMINANCE: At 8th level, the knight can use all three abilities; demoralize, embolden and inspire in the same round.

<t>Just got "The Original Bottle City" by Robert Kuntz. Sat down with a cup of coffee, laid out the map and went though it. Seriously cool old school module. It's going be a few years before I can use it but I'm looking forward some craziness.<br/> <br/> I might have add the upper-level with hooks a...

Players Guide to "Class"

<t>I was thinking that a product that I would like to see would be a small "handbook" release for each class. Something the size of the original od&d books each filled with all the info you would need for each class.<br/> <br/> Example would be the "Players Guide to Clerics" you have the info fr...

<t>I think Serleran is pointing out that the question is of scope. Think about something like Greyhawk and Oerth. Oerth is huge but most of the first decade of almost everyday adventuring took place in a small area Greyhawk. So if you are trying to map out a huge amount of land with cultures, langua...

Is this the Black Box? I have my 5th Edition Black Box but it's a little beat up [teen years also] but I must say it is probably the coolest looking Box set ever.

Good old Gord! I was lucky enough to follow the series back in the 80's when TSR put out the first 2 and New Infinities put out the rest. It is a must for Gygax/Greyhawk fans.

<r>Our group played "online" from 2002 until the end of 2006 which was the last game we've run. We started with OpenRPG and I even though some time and effort into bug squishing for that project at the time. However Latency issues in the chat server made us walk away from in in 2004 at version 1.5.2...

<t>Not just the shipping. When I click on the A1-A5 is comes up as $18.00 for US instead of $25.00, now I like a deal as much as the next guy but I also want to make sure the Trolls stay in business.

I'd love to see the gods of Sumer included. A common view is if the Egyptian's taught us about Heaven then the Sumerian's taught us about Hell. Just my two cents [and I even stopped lurking and made an account to post that ]
