    I always twisted the D&D rule about, "That which is not permitted is forbidden," into, "That which is not permitted is allowed and we'll crunch it out when it occurs."

    I agree with that - "sandbox" scenarios and campaigns can be VERY well written... Something a published writer with whom I am friends just suggested was to consider WHY when writing. Also, if it isn't germane to the plot/idea, don't put it in. Nobody cares if the hero likes the smell of oleander...

    Stupid spells like this could save a village from starvation and earn SERIOUS reputation bonuses for a caster.

    Malruhn replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Deceptively useless Magical "Artifacts" in Campaign Resources
    I introduced a bunch of "crap" magical items to a group once that whined and complained about how useless they were. Fast forward a year, the campaign ran its course and a new DM starts a new campaign. Session three, the biggest whiner starts asking the DM how much a Cauldron of Cooking would...

    Malruhn replied to a thread [DM / Player Tools] New Race: Drokal (Pathfinder RPG) in Campaign Resources
    I don't see any down-side to playing a Drokal. No penalty to Diplomacy due to tattoos in your face? This sounds like there would have to be a level adjustment of +1 to play one... Just a thought.

    I'm with the others - if you want to start playing that game, you need to include armor damage absorption and such. At one time, armor had THREE armor classes... ac vs pierce, bludgeon, and slash. Chain mail is GREAT against slashes (probably +8 or more), but absolutely crap against bludgeon...

What are you looking for?:
I and my fiance (who is my only means of transportation) are looking for a Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 game preferably, but are open to trying just about any RPG as long as the group is willing to deal with noobs. Someplace close to Johnson State College would be great (on campus would be mind-blowingly awesome), but we're willing to go as far as Burlington (estimated at around 50mi / one hour away) once a week. (If the group is closer then we might be able to play more often.)
About Me
Biography:
I've really only played D&D 3.5 and 4e. I think that 3.5 is as perfect as it's going to get for me, mostly because I like to play with level adjustments and the massive amount of personalization available, but also because I've absorbed most of the rules as a part of my very being at this point. (Though I try not to be a rules lawyer.) I'd like to play as often as possible, I'm completely addicted, but all of my friends who I used to play with have wandered off while I wasn't paying attention and now I find myself suffering from withdrawals. I suppose I could be described as a power gamer or something like that, in that I like to make the most all around powerful character that I can while sticking to the rules. I have one or two non-marshal characters who could easily take out a monster of a CR equal to their level, providing that they get the first hit. I also like to mess with the DM's head and do things that they might not have expected of a PC. Well, I guess this has gotten kind of long, so...

If everything needed to be taught in order to be learned nothing would be known.

This is far more fun than it has any right to be.
