    I'm a New Yorker by nationality (though a West Coaster by current address), and as you know on the little AD&D PHB chart for initial attitude, the intersection of New York and New Jersey says "A". It's like elves and dwarves. But when three of my gaming friends from college lived there, I spent a lot of time in Joisey and liked it . . . after all, you have good pizza . . . but I stuck with 287 instead of the Garden State or I-95.

    Toll roads? Our taxes already maintain the roads. Down south we lynch politicians who try to vote in that kind of crap. No tolls here.

    Hey, Gary -- this is something that I've just been curious about, though I haven't followed the thread in its entirety so possibly you may have answered it in some previous part, but:

    What's your preferred way to roll for stats?

    Come visit Dallas/Fort Worth to see and travel on mythical Southern Toll Roads!

    We have 2 that I know of, and we may be getting more.

    in certain parts of chicago, the interstates are specifically designed in such a way that once you get to certain point on them, you're stuck paying and there's no way to get off and avoid them (unless you want to turn around and drive against traffic, woohoo!)
    don't quote me on that.

    Technically, TX is the Southwest.

    We have Grits AND Guns.

    Grits & Guns...hmmmm...the RPG?

    Howdy

    As a DM who wants the players to be as pleased as possible with the process. I typically allow stat rolls of d46, taking the three highest, and allowing the totals to be arranged in whatever order the player desires.

    In regards to HPs, I typically say re-roll any 1, and I agree with the initial GD being at the max--a good way to assist in survival of low-lEvEl PCs

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Oh scholarly senescent sloth:

    In certain early TSR works if the 1970s, you sometimes wrote a Foreword, sometimes a Foreward, and sometimes a Forward.

    Was there a hidden message in such variations?

    Sure!

    Lazy, shiftless, good for nothing editors, do your petty work and be quick about it. Them who can't put ideas together can clean up the spelling of those who can

    Heh,
