    Need Red Reindeer Antler Clip Art

    It has gotten to the point where I feel that I can come to EN World for help on virtually any subject. You kind folks have given me advice on everything from video games to hockey. Now, I have what will hopefully be a simple request: I need "clip art" of reindeer antlers. Being no good at this...

    Santa needs advice: PS2 or something else, and 4 player games

    My sons, ages 7, 5 and 3, are going to get a new gaming console for Christmas. I'm not a big video game player, so I need a little advice. By far, the leading choice is the PS2. We have a PSone, which the whole family enjoys, but we are not typical console players. We get the most play out of...

    Guns, Germs and Steel on PBS

    My local PBS station is showing Guns, Germs and Steel tonight and for the following two Monday nights. According to a brief review in the paper, this is a somewhat dumbed-down and abbreviated version of Jared Diamond's book, and each episode will last one hour. Thought I would mention it here...

    Food and Water

    Am I missing something or are there no specific 3.5 rules for what happens if you go without food and water? I have started my online group in the World's Largest Dungeon, and I want to stress the fact that they are trapped in the dungeon and must learn to survive until they can find a way...

    No access to my 3.0 books, as I am at work, and I am attempting to advise a player who wants to create a rogue/cleric under the 3.0 rules for multiclassing at 1st level. If I am remembering right, these rules do not appear in 3.5, and are not in either SRD. Anyone have access to your 3.0 DMG? I...

    d20 Messageboard newbs at the liquor store

    So during lunch today I stop by the friendly neighborhood package store. The wife has become enamored with a wine we had on Valentine's Day, and this is the only place I can find the stuff.

    Hockey - Help out a newbie

    I'm taking my 6-year-old son to a AA Hockey game tonight, a first for the both of us. He won tickets at a school program. I know very little about the sport, and have never even watched more than a few minutes on television. I gather there are 3 periods of 20 minutes each, that each team has a...
