    All I'll say is that this whole topic is making me antsy.

    My communities:

    I shiver with ant-icipation . . .
    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.

    PS: A friend taught me that very cool word not long ago . . . and no, the 'm' is not a typo . . .

    Excellent!

    I'll have to work hard, guard against acid responses to my posts, as I see an army of them in the offing.

    Cheers,

    Ah! Your punnitude is clearly exceptional! I don't know how I'm going to tunnel my way out of this one . . .

    Of course, were I a carpenter it would be easier . . . though I suppose the structure of my responses would still be riddled with holes . . .
