A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
Use of a/an and consistent use (or omission, though I'll judge for that too) the Oxford comma are two of my peeves.

Not sure if you are for or against the Oxford comma. I'm for it, but use or non-use of the Oxford comma is more a matter of style. Many U.S. style guides used by news papers (e.g., the APA Style Guide) do not use it, unless it is necessary to avoid confusion. My understanding is that this was one of many ways newspapers tried to get more print in limited space.

First, what a mess when aiming that into the wind. Second, it would be squinting. I am sure some would say it's technically peering. But go ahead and try to "peer" into a hot, hard wind and keep your eyes open.

Well...if a guy can pee into the wind and not have it blow back on him, he's got the confidence of one who has a very powerful stream, is very well endowed, or both.

Then again, I'd probably be even more intimidated by the guy that was peeing into the wind, getting it blown back on him, and not caring.

As I recall, * shake * shake * zip * is the somatic component for prestidigitation, so it's really not a problem.
 




Paragon Lost

Terminally Lost
Not an official D&D rulebook, but an official TSR book, so it counts ;) In all of the original Dragonlance novels, they keep calling a halberd a "hauberk" Every time. Although, it is mighty impressive for Flint to cut a draconian in two with a hauberk...


Beat down with suit of chainmail. lol. Works for me. Also, freaking Flint is a beast. heh.
