    Clearly you are not a professor in punnery, more a weak, scarlet woman, preening like a peacock for cooking up a few pale game jokes that would turn most readers green...but not with envy

    I could hall in some location puns, but a study of the topic prevents me from going that far--too wrentching, and I think I've given the competition enough rope, even though my predominance at this sport is a lead pipe cinch. thus I am going to lounge about now.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    All right...all right...

    I will refrain from delivering more punishment, but I refuse to promise no shaggy dog stories.

    Anyway, I have a dinner engagement that I need to get ready for soon

    cheers,
    Gary

    Who is the father of all jokes?

    None other than Pop Corn!

    BTW, have you seen the Hall of Many Panes? I manage a few in there....

    As much as it Panes me, know I have not yet seen your latest "haul" of encounters.

    Anybody running it at the LGGC?

    A good one. If I was sure you had the proof of that I'd take the fifth...

    Bottoms up,

    There are spronkled throughout the work some considerable number of puns, one whole encounter based on them, that the GM can work to enhance his enjoyment of the play if so desired. If the group enjoy such word play, the GM can slip in his own. If the group suffers, the GM can work my puns for all they're worth and blame it on me as he enjoys the sour expressions and groans

    As the HoMP is a campaign-length module that should take a year or more to play through, I doubt anyone will be running it at the LGGC, although there are a few of the adventure panes that are great for one-off play...

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Wow, there's a lot of Traffic on this thread today. Steverooo, is your last name Winwood?
    "Yes, but apart from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?"

    Psalm 73:26

    "Knowledge, logic, reason, and common sense serve better than a dozen rule books." -- E. Gary Gygax

    From the 1st edition PHB, p.8:
    "Rules not understood should have appropriate questions directed to the publisher; disputes with the Dungeon Master are another matter entirely. THE REFEREE IS THE FINAL ARBITER OF ALL AFFAIRS OF HIS OR HER CAMPAIGN."
