You know what, that doesnt sound like a bad idea. Lets be clear though, i havent played in 18 years (do you know i had to work that out) so i would be crap.

What about yourself do you play much?

I haven't played since University in 1990/1 so its been ages.  I got into 2e and then stepped away but would be open to giving just about any edition a try.  ATM I'm writing something up for when the kids are old enough but getting a game in the MK / LB/ Aylesbury area would be excellent?

Which small village are you then?

And I'm sure that I speak for all members when I ask you to recall the story so far :twisted:

Sorry, that was a sincere welcome. But I just couldn't resist a crack about the story! :wink:


Sorry Gents - took me awhile to get here to introduce myself.   Never been much of a post-er, more of a lurker.  And hey, you guys take shots at the story all day long.   It's the damn dumbest thing I have ever read, and with the newest episode, it gets worst.   I can only blame my kids . . . (works for everything) 8O .   Somehow, it seems to hook people.   Weird, but I can't complain.

What do ya wanna know - no, eBay is not my source of income.   It just feeds a growing collection (and my sons - crazy Star Wars fanatic :wink: ).   Roleplaying is not my only hobby - I grow 150 roses and show them competitively primarily in the Midwest.   I know its weird, but I spend time with my wife AND I can occationally get a tan.   Tough to do in Minnesota.   I earn a couple of pennies a week at American Express.    A bunch of AMEX employees have now been introduced to Overlords collection.

 Crap, this is weird . . . it's like a dating website or something.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  When Aneoth, Badmike, and I were planning to meet up for the first time, I kept thinking "Is my hair ok?  Do my shorts match my eyes?  Is my shrinkwrap straight?"  :lol:

OK, so now you've done it.  :?  

Now I am going to have to spend the whole night going through all my stuff and re-check the shrinkwrap....... :oops:

Don't care so much about my shorts (As long as they are comfortable and fit), my eyes are covered with spectacles, and I have no hair.
So, no concerns there.... :roll:

Ummmm, remember . . . Gypsy + Evil Eye = all bad ; I forget all about the mountain dwarf.   What works well for me one of the classic races - wife with attitude.   This has effectively disrupted the Evil Eye effect.    Sigh . . .

Has anyone else seen the King of the Hill episode where Bobby enters the rose show?   Someone did their evil eye research . . .

I was just thinking of that episode and was gong to post about it - but you beat me to it!

Classic King of the Hill - one of my favorites!  :D

KofH rocks. I always knew Mike Judge would do great things after the very first Beavis & Butthead. :)

Greetings!

My name is Eric Johnson, age 31 from the Detroit area.  I've been fascinated with D&D since childhood (probably now more than ever).  
Sadly, there are very few people around me to play with as much as I'd like.    Lately I've been downloading some of the excellent classic module conversions people have made for Neverwinter Nights.

I've been enjoying this website and these forums for a few months now, too.  It was while reading through the 'Interesting Items Currently on eBay' posts when I felt compelled to join (I wish to call attention to my posting in that section).  Thank you for reading.  Now, I shall resume reading myself.
