    i'll keep that in mind... sometimes you need to feed the troll to keep it from attacking.

    Boz the Wise...

    That will likely cut the punning short, as the punster will be satisfied that his mission of twisted humor has had its desired effect.

    Thanks a lot, Gary. It's to know how you think about it. "Past Master" is a good category.

    In the way I run my game, people don't need a trainer after they make 5th level . . . I guess that's a way of saying "journeyman" or at least you're ready to solo completely/your training is now complete.

I know Gary likes his rules fast and loose, but c'mon!
    Grouse, whine, snivel!
    Now, look Gary, that's exactly what BluSponge is talking about. That's just too darn vague. Is that a new ability list, a command to do more, a complaint, or your verbal response? C'mon, you can do better!

    No kidding!! I wish the current edition taught that instead of painstakingly measuring every gold piece of value and making sure it is in the "right range" for a given level of the party.

    GAWD!!

    Sorry! I'm still adjusting to regaining my DMing freedom now that I have "quit" 3E.

    Few persons are ever at their maximum potential. There is always benefit to further study, prectice, and actual experience

    It is an observation regarding all those persons that expect me to completely develop and detail something when it is usually a case of me purpously being vague for the benefit of the GM. After al, it is made clear by me that the GM is the final authority, no?

    Of course I do sometimes leave out a bit of ctirical information in my haste...

    Hi Gary,

    Will there be a map of your Greyhawk city in the new Saga of Old City release?

    Thanks
