    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    In fact it is still illegal to publicly display a swastika in Germany. Their law (Strafgesetzbuch section 86a) outlaws "use of symbols of unconstitutional organizations" outside the contexts of "art or science, research or teaching". Whatever the hell that means... effectively you can't walk around with a Nazi armband on. Not a bad thing, in my opinion.

    And of course the Late Sir Terry already gave us the God of Evolution.

    That's very generous Cyradis. I was thinking of quoting Arundhati Roy at you all.

    I would suggest having a game of cricket, it usually works in UK.

    Best Version of DnD?

    All fair points Doug. I suppose there are stick-in-the-muds in every hobby.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    That's a very forbidding mountain range. How does anybody get through that?

    Best Version of DnD?

    I find much the same thing as Grump does. And I attribute this to the fact that most SF/Fantasy players show much more ability to "think outside the box" and come up with battle-winning solutions to surprise situations. Too many historical players tend to get unhappy if history doesn't repeat itself in a comforting manner.
