  1. Coffee - with milk and no sugar. My favourite used to be tea but the problem is that I can't stand Hong Kong style milk tea so I tend to only drink tea if I'm drinking it at home. For those who don't know, HK style milk tea is made with evaporated or condensed milk instead of fresh milk and is a horrible abomination.
  2. I forgot to take pictures but I had a ton of fun at the weekend shooting Nerf guns with my kids. We tidied up afterwards but that still counts right?
  3. Can I put down "the hobby" as my answer? More seriously, this is me as well. A lot of the time, even when I have time to paint, I feel tired and just want to go "bleurggle".
  4. The Raise Dead spell. Don't get me wrong. As a former cleric, I loved the Raise Dead spell and all the various other ways that you can bring characters back from the dead. And from a gameplay point of view, it makes absolute sense as well. However, from a story point of view, I've always felt it was fairly suspect and a prime reason that death becomes meaningless in a campaign. Also, from a movie point of view, I've seen too many fantasy movies where the director has tried to brute force emotion by having one of the main characters die with everyone in standing around in tears before the dead character is brought back to life in a shower of sparkly CGI.
  5. I was going to answer this but the doc basically said it all. In my opinion, the long term success of RPGs is down to story-telling - everyone loves a good story. As such, the one thing that the D&D movie has to have is a decent story populated with characters that make sense and that you can connect with. We can complain about the lore but I can almost guarantee that if the D&D movie has a good story with good characters, most people would be willing to either forgive or ignore the lore mis-steps. Although to be honest, at that point, I would be expecting comments along the lines of "It's a good movie but it's not really a D&D movie." I'll disagree with this. The thing with D&D is that it has so many different settings that makes it hard to pin down the "feel" of D&D. A Castle Ravenloft campaign is going to feel very different from the "standard" Forgotten Realms campaign setting. And this isn't even going into how your particular DM ran the game.
  6. Don't have a favorite. Of course, if I was being positive, I would say I like them all equally.
  7. My life. Unfortunately, clean up and organization is going to take a little bit longer than a weekend...
  8. Sorry - I haven't done anything that I would consider a conversion/sculpting project.
  9. So I mention I have a moratorium on purchasing any minis and you ask me what mini do I most wish I had? PS Hope you and your son are doing okay. As everyone else already said, the most important thing is to look after you and your family. We can all wait.
  10. No in my case. I still have a moratorium on any minis purchases and already have way too many unpainted minis as it is.
  11. Basically, what he said. From my point of view, just tell me what your name is and how to spell it and I'll happily comply with whatever that is. With that said, if you ever try to get aggressive about it, I'm cutting you out of my life. Ain't nobody got time for that!
  12. <condescending tone> No, no, no, no, no, no, NO! How little do you mortals understand time. Must you be so linear? Sigh. I'll try to use small words so that your miniscule mind can comprehend. The number of hours in the day doesn't matter. Try to get this through your puny brain. We exist outside the space-time continuum. We have as much time as we mean to. I had such high hopes for you, TGP. I thought you were a bit more ... evolved than the rest of your species. But now I realize you're just as weak as all the others. I believed in you. I thought you had potential. But apparently I was wrong. May whatever god you believe in <snorts> have mercy on your soul.
  13. This isn't true for all games but as a general rule, I love fluff. I find it helps get me in the right frame of mind and in the right temperament to enjoy the game. With that said, you should never be a slave to the fluff and always feel free to deviate if that makes for a more interesting game. I you so much right now! Wow - I'm impressed. Some of those Battletech novels were really bad.
  14. That is genius!
  15. This isn't a problem unless the PCs do remember the voice you gave him.
