  1. I think last night might be my most memorable introduction of myself. I was painting after getting the boy down, and I heard the new downstairs neighbors out on the patio having a dinner party. No biggie. A little bit later the tone of the chatter changed, and something caught my ear. Someone was doing a voice. I stepped out onto my balcony and looked down. The food was all put away, and everyone had their screens out. I couldn't make out most of what was being said, but then... "Make a sleight of hands check" followed by the clatter of dice. They were playing D&D! I went inside, and dithered a moment about how to get their attention. I grabbed a d20 and went back out on the balcony. When there was a lull, I said "Hi neighbors" and tossed the d20 down toward them. Down 3 stories toward them. "What the.... Did he just toss a dice down?" "Yeah, and it's a nat 20!" (I swear to all the gods I'm not making this up) "Hey, you play D&D?!?" "Yeah I do!" I replied. "Can he join us? Do you want to come play?" Obviously, I could, and did. And that's how I met my new neighbors and their friends last night. The view from the 5th floor Right before I tossed the d20. And a few minutes later at the table!

  17. Question for September 6: Labor day! The history of the labor movement in the USA is interesting, to say the least, as is the reason we don't celebrate it on international workers day (May 1st).

  22. That's some.... eclectic lighting. Conga Rats!! I would justify it by calling it the Hamsterling's future inheritance. I'm not sure that's how that works.... But I like how you think!
  23. I'm strongly considering picking up the Old-School Essentials books... not that I need yet another old school D&D rules set... But that hasn't really ever stopped me before.
