    D&D 1E Favorite Obscure Rules from TSR-era D&D

    I played in a game where we fought that guy, and I took his sword. Every fight afterward usually featured me asking a variant of the following question: "but is it a peasant werewolf?"

    Our Physical Fitness

    I stayed offsite at the Abbey Resort, which meant I pretty much had the run of their gym while I was there. That was really nice as I don't have much self-control when it comes to eating on vacation.

    Sales Figures for TSR Marvel Superheroes RPG

    Hi, all. I'm wondering if any of you know where I could find sales figures for the TSR-era Marvel Superheroes RPG line. I know those sorts of figures can be hard to come by and that Ben Riggs did some work on finding that information for D&D. I have no idea how to find it on my own, though. :/...

    What adventure module have you pillaged the most without using the main plot?

    I've used Storm King's Thunder for place-based encounters, its random encounter tables, and its gazetteer (which was frankly stronger than SCAG) for several campaigns. I've run PotA twice now, and both times, the Red Larch and surface stuff was far stronger than the back half of the campaign...

    I've never been much into rowing (too much cardio peanut butter in my resistance training chocolate), but this bit about old man knees? It's making me reconsider.

    D&D General "I'd like to run (or play in) an all ___________ campaign." (+)

    A friend and I have joked about doing an all-bard party of "monstrous" humanoids and basically playing Gwar. Our calling? Summon Gor Gor.

    Coen Brothers - The Movies and the Ranking!

    And now I have to watch the ones I haven't seen so I can weigh in. And I'd better re-watch the ones I haven't seen in awhile. To avoid recency bias, I'll need to watch those I've seen more recently. Darn. ;) I haven't seen all of them, so I can't speak to those. I'd agree with Snarf that No...

    D&D General Industry Veteran Jennell Jaquays Passes

    I'm so saddened to hear this. We've lost a true icon.

    Thanks for responding, and you're dead on about the ego part. It's something that I'm still trying to adapt to. Full ROM has never really been a problem for me, and it's one of those dimensions of ego-lifting that's pretty easy to circumvent. Rather, it's the nebulousness of paused reps...

    The "I Didn't Comment in Another Thread" Thread

    As an academic, I've been able to dip my toes in that field a tiny bit through publishing and networking (it's very, very small). My experience thus far has been so, so much more enjoyable than engaging folks on message boards but also much narrower and slower. It's a microcosm in a lot of ways...

    I've lifted on an off again for decades at this point. I first got into it a bit before my 30s, and went from 135 lbs (5'7") to 180 at my heaviest. After grad school and kids derailed me, I started taking it seriously again after the pandemic in my 40s. I spent the first year or so simply...

    I for one welcome our Snarfian overlords. It may be a totalitarian state, but the drinks are good and the allusions to Derek sustain.

    What do you use Chat GPT for?

    I haven't used it much, but I have used it as a player to quickly generate holy texts and sayings my cleric or paladin can "cite" in game. It took a few stabs at getting. ChatGPT Certainly! Here are Torm the True's doctrines presented as sayings: 1. Duty and Loyalty: "In Torm's name, duty...

    Bruh, you may disagree with the outcome of RAW, but when you have lots of people patiently explaining them to you and incorporating outside sources to help you understand and you're still relying on/bending the meaning of the word "simultaneous," you're the problem here.
