    Props to Flexor! That was the funniest thing I've read in a long while!

    And yeah, big G, what about them Gord graphic novels? Can you drop any names as to the artists/adaptors? And. When. They'll. Be. Out?

    Good post there, Flexor

    The Gord the Rogue graphic novels are supposed to be secret. I blew that some time back, but what the hell... :rolleyes:

    Latest word from the publisher is that the series will be announced at the Chicago Comic Con in August. That's likely a sure thing, as I am slated to show up there on Saturday the 9th (I think that's the date) to promo the "Zero Issue" and the coming regular numbers to follow.

    The delay has been to assure the artwork is top flight and line up distribution.

    Cheerio,
    Gary

    One day the head of Anheuser Busch, the head of Coors, and the head of Guiness walk into a bar and go to the counter. There the bartender asks them what they'll have.

    The head of Anheuser Busch says, "I'll have a Budweiser."

    The head of Coors says, "I'll have a Coors."

    The head of Guiness says, "I'll have a soda."

    A bit surprised the bartender asks him, "Why are you having a soda?"

    The CEO of Guiness replies, "Well, since neither of my friends are having a beer, It didn't seem right to have one myself."

    Bah Guinness is good but Budweiser is better!!!! More alcohol and more Drinkability*!

    I like Beer, no I love Beer. I love German Beers most of all, but decent non-lite American Beer is good too.





    *that's what's on the can.

    As stats became more vital to a long-lived PC, I improved the players' chance to get a viable one quickly, one that they would be happy with.

    In my campaign I allowed rolls of 4d6, three highest for the score, and arrangement of scores as the player wished. That enabled the creation of a character the player wished to play, of course.

    Ciao,
    Gary
    We started with with 3d6 in order rolled, moved to 3d6 in player selected order to get characters and classes we would like to play, then finally ended up with the 4d6 with player selected order to get viable characters like you mention. We have been doing this for years and seems to be the best way for us. I am glad to know that our paths moved the same way!

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Agreed, Mike

    The objective is to have players who are happy with their new PCs, the latter having a decent chance of surving the adventures.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    At the risk of incurring wrath...

    All the popular American beers are watery and tasteless, so they need to be drunk ice cold so as to convince the poor deluded consumers that it is beer they are drinking, not amber-hued, carbonated water.

    IMO the British real ales are about the best brew one can enjoy. Sam Smith's Nut Brown Ale is one of my vary favorites, and their Oatmeal Stout is better than Guiness to my palate.

    Peter Hand Brewery used to make an excellent beer, their Special Reserve, but it had body and flavor, so folks raised on soda pop likely preferred beers lacking those qualities.

    Heh,
    Gary

    We usually drink our Budweiser at progressively warmer temperatures. See the group of guys I drink with most of the time just sit our case of Bud on the table and start going at it. Pour in some Bushmills shooters and it's ecstacy!

    Gary can you tell me if the Gord GN's will be able to feature the Greyhawk names and locations?
