    What is your favourite published adventutre? and more important WHY?

    For OD&D, Keep on the Borderlands and then Isle of Dread where fantastic as a young kid. Today, I really liked DMing the 2nd of the 3E adventure path series The Silver Forge... Also, the first Dragon Lance module Dragons of Despair (??) in which that Black Dragon bursts out of the well in the...

    Since the start of 3E, which (non-core) book have you used the most?

    Forgotten Realms Silver Marches - considering I am running a campaign there... All the other FR supplements do well and the splat books

    Rules for Narcotics

    I don't have Monte Cook's BoVD, but I was wondering if anybody could direct me to the rules on addiction and how it affects PC's / NPC's in game mechanic terms... Not looking for a debate on the merits of drugs in the game, but looking for simple addiction rules. Thanks!

    Fleetwood von Jarden III A Fighter in the old red Basic set... Went all the way to Lvl 36 (which was the max) I was 10yrs old, and if anybody says I cheated to get the top, I'll punch you in the nose!

    Longest campaign you've run/played in?

    14 years... can you dig it! Yep 13 years... Started when I was 16 and I recently turned 30... Must admit there was a hiaitus for 2-3 years there, but we only play semi regularly... Home brew campaign, not serious just guys, pizza, beer and D&D...

    [OT] Would all the Aussies, please stand up?

    Snoweel, whilst a Saints man, I actually grew up in Greystanes and hence most of my mates (who I occaisionally game with) are Parra fans - so I feel for your eternal optimism, but you blew your big chance two years ago... At the moment, I live in Glenbrook in the lower mountains. I...

    [OT] Would all the Aussies, please stand up?

    If you call running around in tight shorts & a singlet top trying to kick a goal but still getting a point for missing a football code.... Don't get me started on a league vs cross country basketball discussion!

    What would you characterise as your primary style of playing D&D?

    I've been DM'ing the one campaign for 14 years... We only play 3 or 4 times a year, so it hasn't been a long campaign, but the odd thing is that there has never been any deaths.... A couple of close calls, particularly last session where I had my first PC down to -8hp, but no deadin's (yet!)...

    Amazon Sale of DnD Products

    An Aussie's point of view Well, in Australia, given the US/AU exchange rate, our local GST (Goods & Services Tax - 10%) and the fact that there are additional import duties and charges, all RPG products are quite expensive. For instance the FRCS was around $80 Aussie! For comparison, the cost...

    what extent do you plan out your PC?

    I pick a class, race and start at first level... Never really pick any feats that would initially seem strange - hence I always take pretty much close to the standard setups as per the PHB, and my skills I max out as many as I can... Then as we play and advance, I will develop as the game...
