    Texas is its own region.
    Words of wisdom from Gary Gygax:

    From my perspective wanting less in the way of rules constraints comes from being a veteran Game Master who feels confident that more good material comes from imagination and player interaction with the environment than from textbook rules material.
    more words of wisdom:

    • Rashness and foolhardiness are harbingers of death, as is timidity, in such adventure setting.
    • Those that complain about real challenges might be better off playing Candyland with their little sister
    • First and foremost, munchkinism arose as a contemporary of the OD&D game. Nothing in the rules of that or any other version of the game was needed to make it flourish.
    • There is no relationship between 3E and original D&D, or OAD&D for that matter. Different games, style, and spirit.
    • [E]xperience has taught me that everyone has their own gaming preferences, and it is not a matter of "good" or "bad" in all, save in light of one's own preferences.

    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

    Thank you. That qualifies you for an editorial position somewhere, I should imagine

    hey, if you can find an actual d46 that might be worth some money!
    don't quote me on that.

    I am the D&D guru on Wikipedia (because no one else wanted the job!) so check out the D&D Wikiproject!

    D4 followed by d6 gives a range of 1-24

    I prefer tolls to taxes (why should someone pay taxes for a road on which he might not even drive?), and NJ gas taxes are nice and low.

    I would agree if tolls replaced taxes, but they seldom do. You end up paying both.

    Errr...

    I'd love to discuss the politics of that, and I do agree with your statement, but this isn't the place
