    What'd everyone get?

    Nah. My sister and I called off gift giving years ago pretty much. And I don't expect much from my parents and vise versa at this point. Sometimes there may be gifts, but generally it is just the act of getting together they want.

    What'd everyone get?

    At the risk of being a super downer. I got nothing. First Christmas since my SO passed and I didn't have the heart to fly to where my family was in Texas. I'll, probably get myself something D&D related soonish here. Or perhaps some Legos after they replenish their stock.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    What does that even mean!?! What lifestyle? Does wearing a mask really fit anyone's 'lifestyle'?

    ¿Quién es más macho? Simpsons, or Futurama?

    I'll always go with Futurama. Some of those episodes... the emotions. And others, with just great lines that I can find useful in normal day life.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    I think we just heard a report this week that my state's hospitals are looking at 95% of all ICU beds being occupied. And 93% of all beds in use. All according to the DHS.Wisconsin.gov.

    Morbius - Official Trailer 2 (2022)

    So this ISN'T Batman, right? Recent movies are definitely hitting the limits of my comic-book knowledge.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Probably because their parents made them do it when they were young. We really have a habit of, "Well I did it when I was a kid, and look how I turned out!" Or, "That's how it has always been done."

    D&D 5E A reptilian world?

    As a massive, massive fan of lizardfolk, I find this idea FAR too appealing... I can't build the world for them! I already have two campaigns I am running/working on! ...yet I must...

    The Suicide Squad (Spoilers after OP)

    It was odd that Flag was on that doomed team. Maybe she though he could manage his way out? More, I think they wanted to still illustrate her as a cold-hearted director type, but wanted to pull back from that whole, shooting everyone on my surveillance team vibe. That is what caught me the...

    The Suicide Squad (Spoilers after OP)

    I guess Starro is the 'Big Bad'. Though, I am really unsure myself. One of its last line being "We were happy just floating in space looking at the stars", makes it hard to hang the hat on him being the true villain. I think it is a familiar message that we are our own worst enemies...

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    My mother asked me if I was coming down to Texas this year to see them. That would be likely in Jan or Feb. I had to tell her that so far out it is impossible to tell what the fall and winter will be like and whether I would be willing to travel and have to take so much time off work, not only...

    D&D 5E Spear houserule

    Some real-world fuzziness notwithstanding, I think for a DnD game, this will be strong, but not overpowered. I was far lazier when I changed spears for a homebrew, took off the throwing, and just bumped it up to 1d8/1d10 for damage to bring it in line with the other martial melee weapons...

    D&D 5E Power Armor? Fallout Style

    I am sorry. But I am compelled... Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY!

    D&D 5E Power Armor? Fallout Style

    Hmmm. I would probably have it also break away as the armor does in the game, so maybe give it a hardness threshold and hit point pool on pieces that once depleted that piece no longer counts toward the bonus to AC. Obviously, that HP pool, or threshold could ramp up with better versions of the...
