Thanks in advance.

But seriously. DL is over-the-top D&D. All fluff, no substance. I also think there is way too much cliche stuff in DL. And as BYTB has pointed out - hippie city.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Slow to notice, but it isn't only SR #3 that Titan picked up.

Polys #2 & #5 (40 & 12 NM copies, respectively; $9.99 ea. + OTT postage, of course...)

Would be interesting to know what other semi-rare/rare items are kicking around their storage, en-bulk.

bbarsh's white bean chicken chili:

4 chicken breasts - skinned, boiled with salt and pepper, then shred
1 12-16 oz block pepperjack cheese
1 jar (32oz) white beans
1 can 12 oz black beans
1 jar 12 oz +/- of your favorite salsa

combine in slow cooker on high for 15 minutes to melt cheese. simmer on low-medium for 45 minutes +/-

This is an awesome yet simple meal. warms up great for lunch. I like spicey foods, but you do not need hot salsa - the pepperjack does the trick nicely. I don't add a single bit spice(s) either. you just don't need it.

Sounds good. :)

Spicey, but not an inferno? ;)

It just hit me Mike.  We should round up some people, have a get together and play some COC this Halloween.  Lots of candles, black cloaks, spooky music, bbarsh's chili....I am always in the mood for a good scare.  :P

I think you are on to something...But for CoC, you need my calamari recipe 8O

You Texans certainly don't need me to tell you how to make chili, though. 8)

    How about just the chili, and a case of Shiner.   :D
  I knew a guy years ago who played D&D every Hallowee, he and his wife were the DM's. They decorated up the house and wore costumes, the entire bit.  They ran I6 Ravenloft every Halloween, and every game ended up with all the characters dead.  The reward for anyone that triumphed over Strahd and survived was a full level gained for their character in their "real" campaign (the Ravenloft thing was played as a nightmare and so everyone could bring their own characters, death was treated as if the player's character woke up).  Anyway, they always seemed to have a lot of fun, I never go around to gaming with them any Halloween it seemed there was always something else going on.
    Coc always lends itself well to a one shot game, though.  You can wipe the entire group out and not feel guilty at all, as a matter of fact, doing a scenario on Halloween practically guarantees 100 percent rate of player death.

(just thought I'd add the 1000th Random Thoughts post.... as its unlikely I'll hit 1000 personal posts for some time. I seem to be averaging about one post a week, which means I'll hit 1000 in about 2020)

Kinda frightening when you need to look up a value on a module and the site is down.  Oh, Acaeum how I missed thee.   BTW Yes, I did overpay!

Could have sworn we'd noted the GW Ds were a bit scarcer...
(Guess those auctions closed the wrong way around; i.e. Ds first! ;))

$40/$48/$48 vs. $67/$72/$46 (D/G)
