Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal
"I want them as God and Gygax intended it!"

"What, Gygax had a different order before then? Bah, who needs him; I have my own playdoh, Colonel. Okay, I want it the new, improved way!"

whisperwhisperwhisper

"What, there's a yet newer way? Heretical! Touching things they shouldn't. Get off my lawn!"

(I voted STR, INT, WIS, DEX, CON, CHR. Other ways make more sense, and I use whatever order the edition I'm playing uses, but while I started with (red box) basic, my formative years in terms of playing enough were more AD&D.)

Hiya!

Technically, the Big Four are ....

F, U, C, T.

You will never un-see that now. You are welcome.


Y'know...all that does is make it even easier to remember for newbies, right?
Congratulations. You just corrupted an entire new batch of young, impressionable Players! I hope you're happy with yourself!
;)

I used that one already - Strint Wisdex - but I applaud your add of the Concha clan! :)

Using just the first two letters of each one gets you this:

Stin Widecoch

Use this name at your own peril...I've yet to be so daring... :)
Just do not add an o somewhere, nope just do not do it! I said do not do it and now think about something else :p
