Yep, that's the truth... Strange, isn't it?

Will stick with my own slightly beat-up box rather than fork out $50+, I guess.


Speaking of strange...I kinda went a little overboard with this one.  Guy wanted it really bad I guess.

It's a 4th print, not a 5th. Or am I missing something? :)

In most cases, even when it's a bit high (but not when it's excessive), I prefer using BIN. One shot, one kill, you get the item, no one else may contend you, no snipers... and no surprises over the final price.

It happened to me once to kill a BIN because I did not want to pay that price; in the end, I was sniped by an offer which was way higher than the BIN. I learned the lesson.

"during one attack sequence, rolled three consecutive 10s followed by a 9"
Not very well used, or else actually unlucky? :D

How much for my percentiles on which I rolled 585, then? (open-ended up per RM)

I always liked the look of R1 - it is a nice shade of red.

Hmmm, since you mention it - it might also be a bit of a commie module... Although D&D by and large is very much a capitalist running-dog game, with all that naked acquisition and greed, theft, exhortations to the DM to get the players to spend all their cash so that they need to steal more (instead of donating it to a worthy political party which aims to bring about a revolution in Greyhawk and free the oppressed serfs from their bonded labour etc..).  Yet, an oddly classless game - until UA coughed up a small bit about birth ranking or somesuch, and even then it had little impact upon the game.

As a game Chivalry and Sorcery had a much more class-based approach (cue Monty Python and the Holy Grail sketches), as did Elric/Stormbringer - what you were born determined much about what kind of game you were going to have ("oh, wow, what luck, we all rolled up Melniboneans - well, lets spend the first three sessions buying slaves and mansions, summoning demons and mapping out our towers of sorcery...")

:)
