Re: The D&D Corner

Hmm ... I've had another idea for my story, but I thought I'd run it by you: For the purposes of the story, my LN Sphinx has to shapechange into a human, so she can go into a nearby town, do some research, talk to priests etc. (Obviously that would draw attention, but oh well). I looked into the MM,...

Re: You Know You've Played Too Much (General)

... when ... um ... this is not the Sierra thread! But when you start wondering what happened to the olde-style graphics. ;)

Re: You Know You Played Too Much..... (Sierra)

... you expect pigs to be tiny, little, pink, cutesy things, so you go to a pig farm. And get a biiig surprise. And an even bigger one when they want to pose for photos with you. (Everyone's a ham. ;) *pig squeals angrily* Sorry)

Re: You deliver the punishment (game)

... become a pig farmer and have to take care of real pigs for the next three months. (I've never been one, but I'm sure it's no fun. For a start, real pigs are not cutesy or pink but huge, bristled, scary, brown-grey things. They're intelligent and (obviously) smelly. And they eat like pigs). ;) Le...

Re: The D&D Corner

:lol: I love that expression, "weak sauce". ;) Playing devil's advocate for a moment, I can only assume that the lawyer may have read about August Derleth (the man who first published the writings of H. P. Lovecraft), and got confused. *shrug* Derleth, Derelith? Cthulhu, Mind Flayers? Maybe? Close, ...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

And following up from that -- here's a message from last March, but it's a good message and even more relevant now. (Besides, I just saw it on Twitter and thought I'd share). :)

From Max and Mel Brooks ;)

Hmm, I've heard of Michael Moorcock's connection to TSR, but didn't know about that. Thanks, Tawm. :) As for this ...

Re: QfG3 observation ... dead ant, dead ant, dead ant ...

But Herodotus (the Greek historian, and known as "the father of history") also mentions giant ants in his Histories . According to him, they apparently exist in India and dig up gold during the hot noon hours. They leave it there, and you can snatch some up, provided you are quick enough to escape ...

Re: Question about army drill

Hmm. Since the CIA works in intelligence (i.e. spying), wouldn't they also work in counter-intelligence (i.e. stopping spies)? Or is that the FBI's role?

Re: Three Clues - Who Am I?

Oh. :( Long before my time, I'm afraid ... I wouldn't have had a PC for another 4 years, or the means to buy games (on my own) for another 12. :|

Are you human (or humanoid)?
