So we still some extra chain mail for the head/neck area.

As a side note the chainmail (as shown in the picture of the office worker on the geek site) will protect you from ever going on a date with the hot chick in your office.  :wink:


oh believe me mike, wherever you have armour, i will find a place for it to bite where you DON'T trust me my friend :)

The encounter just got out of hand.  Your tactics were basically sound; the creature on your back could have been anything . . .

Something like, "Yeah, I was surprised by a giant shrew.  I overreacted and threw myself on my back.  We killed it." is not funny.  Everything else is funny!

Preparing to backstab yourself, getting, errr, maced by a party member, and then groped by a dwarf are only some of what makes it funny.  The set-up of the encounter, the enjoyment by the players & DM, the connection to GenCon . . . the list goes on and on, and I've only read about it.

:D

seriously now, (sorry mike for going on about it really man), this encounter was a DMs dream. i sat there and couldnt believe some of the things they were going to do - i seriously had the dice ready to see if mike (the elf) would fart when he was grabbed by martin (the dwarf) to steady him, THEN john with such a great idea, actually MISSED, i couldnt help but get him to thump mike and watch them all react - was hilarious.

seriously guys, and i mean this. that was a game that i will never forget - not necessarily for the fun element, but 4 great buds gaming together revelling in what we enjoy the most - old-school D&D :)

Mike,

Next time before you go back into Tegal, don't forget to read THE TAMING OF THE SHREW..... :lol:

At least it would give you a better chance to capture it...

Maybe you could then become a SHREW MASTER and have them do your bidding...

Okay, I'm done now...

Next time I've got a little scenario I want to run....Toss Killjoy Off the Top of Greyhawk Ruins...should be a classic!!! :D

But seriously, I think I am also going to bring a short scenario to run....I have a couple of possibilities with Acaeum ties that I would love to put Al and company through.....maybe we can have TWO Acaeum dungeons, and I can have a chance to inflict giant furry mammals on the group.

:D

well i am already planning a cool adventure, so we will be well covered either way.

things going the way they hopefully should, i should be ok for coming next time round. if i am not, i will find a way.

can't miss going again - was too much fun to miss.

i have only played once as a player in the last 20 years. was always a case that nobody else wanted to DM so i had to do it......
