    It's like Valentine's Day, but I'm taking part in it!

    I just did a Saving Throw versus Angry Spouse and lost, so looks like I'll be cleaning out the garage, instead.
    • This whole thing could be avoided if you had sufficient ranks in Profession (Divorce Lawyer), you know. Maybe you can get the DM to make you let an untrained skill check, if you're lucky.
      • only on slashdot can you suggest people get divorced over dungeons and dragons :) personally I'm sitting at home with meh kids, going through all that old SRD stuff I have hacking up for all my personalized utilities I've been meaning to code for a couple of years. I'd rather my girlfriend not be an "NPC" right now, though. (Rolls for charisma ... gets a date?)

      You play D&D and you have a wife! What kind of arcane magic is this? It's power is like nothing I have ever seen.

  • Now if only they had smell-o-vision for web sites, so those of us who can't attend could smell the unwashed bodies and Doritos...

    I am having a great time since returning to play after twenty years. Some of us at work have a lunch session once or twice per week. I think DnD is going to be around forever because there is endless material and the rules just continue to build in order to give the game more things to track.
  • I've been looking for a good game here for years.
    kendall area.
  • I work in a comic book store where one of these game days took place. The DM I had was good, but there was this really ugly fat chick who talked too much and had no idea what she was doing which was annoying. I didn't really mind the two kids and their father playing because I saw it as a good thing for them to be doing together and for the kids to get a taste of a different adventure. That said, the adventure itself was only combat, no puzzles, no roleplaying, barely any skill use. It was just fight after

Logic is the chastity belt of the mind!
