Welcome By-Tor & SnowDog!   :)

There's no snack section here, but there is a "Random Thoughts or OT Chit-Chat Thread" to place those kinds of comments.   Of course, the classic D&D snacks are Doritos and Mountain Dew, but I'm not a big fan of either as Doritos and Cheetos put orange dust over everything, and water is my drink of choice since I'm a hydrotarian.  There are gamers who like to drink adult beverages during play.  It adds +2 to your courage but -2 to your wisdom and intelligence.... :wink:   Healthy snacks are trending like hummus, nuts, and fruit.  It adds +1 to your constitution but -1 to your pleasure.  Some people eat meals during play with foods like pizza, chicken wings, and bratwurst.  These add +2 distance on your dice throws from all the grease, but -2 on your speed of play.  

However, there is a solution to many of these issues and it's Badmike's Bad Crap Table!  You throw the dice off the table, argue with the DM, or fall asleep on the toilet; Badmike makes a roll on the Badmike's Bad Crap Table!  But I digress.....   8)

Ha! Thanks for the welcome, the run down on snacks and the heads up about the random thoughts thread!

I've been lurking for awhile but thought I'd better take a moment and add my own introduction.  


Always nice to meet another Rush fan who enjoys D&D too! :D

By-Tor & SnowDog wrote in Introduce Yourself, Fellow Collectors:In the late 70's, my older brother got me into Dungeons and Dragons by way of the 1975 Dungeon! Boardgame (though the "board" was little more than plastic mat as I recall) and then on to the Holmes boxed set.  


Holmes is pretty magical!:  From Kuroth's Quill - grodog's AD&D blog: grodog's start in gaming - 1977:  Cedar Avenue, Star Wars, and Holmes Basic

By-Tor & SnowDog wrote in Introduce Yourself, Fellow Collectors:Being 7 or 8 at the time, Star Wars was my world, but RPGs of all sorts opened new vistas of imagination for me.  Though I primarily played AD&D, others like Star Frontiers and Boot Hill also made there way into the mix.

In '84 I won tickets to go to Origins here in Dallas and had my first brush with the wider gaming community.  


You're preaching to the choir here, BT&tSD!  My first con was Origins in PA in 1980 :D

Welcome aboard!

Allan.

Hi! Been a collector for years (20?) and just found this site recently as I've come back to add to the collection and was figuring out values to pay(haven't played the game in last 5 years, family/kids etc.).

Wanted to say this is a wonderful resource and hope to interact with you guys more.

Due to said commitments I'm not really able to 'hound' ebay and the like & be on top of things. But still want to participate.

Background: I started playing in the late 80's as a kid, AD&D, and continued with the same group/DM in my home country until late 00's. I used to work in a local game store there while at Uni which sold/bought used D&D stuff (amongst other things) which is where I got a fair bit of my collection.

Anyway, thanks again and see everyone around

Welcome Shadeun! This is the premier source for information, but for buying and selling there are a number of really good groups on Facebook. If you have any questions, just send me a PM. Welcome to the funny farm!

Hello everyone; I introduce myself, Dvergguden, I live in France and I discovered Dungeons & Dragons in 1983 (with the first French translation of the Moldway's box). I haven't played for a long time but I have always kept my passion for this game. I have been frequenting this forum for a while now (more than 10 years) as a simple visitor (I'm a very shy guy), but I've now decided to register because I have a question to submit to the distinguished members of the Acaeum ^^.
