Re: Chick Tracted!

The first job I ever worked at. It happened there, because someone overheard a conversation I had with a friend wherein I tell that friend I'm an atheist. For the next few weeks I found Chick Tracts in the break room. They made good bathroom fodder, though I didn't wipe my a$$ with them. @TheMetal1...

Re: WOTC Temple of Elemental Evil Board Game (Adventure Syst

Tiles work good, think stock, and the art is good. I haven't done it, but I think their interchangeable as well so you can make your own scenario. Or you can use them for dungeon crawling in a regular RPG game.
