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

I just wanted to pop by and say that in my game the other day I had to come up with a wizard on the spot, so my players encountered the Red Wizard of the East, Stoseph Jalin.

During the 4E game at my FLGS, the DM's "campaign map" was a piece of a board game board.
It took a couple sessions before I figured out that we were adventuring in Civil War-era South Carolina...

My character's backstory as a ranger explained her hatred of gnolls, and even to this day, ever since I figured out what the map was, I have a hard time not picturing gnolls dressed in Confederate uniforms... :p

You sometimes wake up from a dream and think, "Thank God, I didn't really do that!" Reconstructing a period of blackout you think, "My God, did I really do that?" The line between saying and thinking is blurred. Did you say it or just think it?

When I first read that thread title, I thought you meant Expert as in "the E in BECMI" and I got really excited. "Why yes!" I would have said, "I've played all of them at one point or another in the late 1980s and early 1990s!" And then I would have gone on to type about how druids and paladins were 'subclasses' of clerics and fighters, respectively, and how for all its faults BECMI might have been ahead of its time in some ways.

Alas, closer inspection reveals the truth. It's not a rare appreciation thread about the Basic and Expert rules set; it's just one more thread about OneD&D to add to the pile.

The part I hate is when I think something, and then someone nearby responds as though I'd said it out loud...

I start to wonder if I've been broadcasting my thoughts to everyone, or maybe gotten hit with a bad case of Visible Thought Bubbles.

On the other hand, it does tend to be useful when I think to myself, "Y'know, I could really go for a pizza right now...", and someone else actually says, "I could really go for a pizza right now..." :p

Mad_Jack:
They say you murdered someone in an edition war. Is that true?

Snarf:
Who told you that?

Mad_Jack:
Word gets around.

Snarf:
It wasn't murder. It was an accident. Overly sharp wit.

Mad_Jack:
There are no accidents. For example, I've been killing a fan of the second edition slowly over a period of years.

Snarf:
What?

Mad_Jack:
Well, not intentionally. I mean, on the level of conscious intention ... to kill someone over a silly game of dragons and wizards and unicorns.... that would be insane, monstrous.

Snarf:
But you do consciously know you're murdering someone! You just said it. We're discussing it.

Mad_Jack:
Not consciously. This is all happening telepathically, non-consciously.

Snarf:
What do you mean?

Mad_Jack:
If you look carefully at my lips, you'll realize that I'm actually saying something else. I'm not actually telling you about the several ways I'm gradually murdering fans of older editions of D&D.

It makes more sense if you think the roach powder is heroin, dunnit?
