As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Lately I've been getting frustrated at the amount of regional sniping that's been going on in D&D that's based on stereotypes or political events. To help people remember that every place sucks for some reason or another, I'm asking everyone to comment on (at least) one thing that sucks about the city or state/province that they live in.
I'll begin: In Georgia, there are no alcohol sales on Sunday...except in bars and restaurants. This means that the state believes that it is better for me to drink at a bar and then drive home than to be able to buy a 6-pack at the store and drink at home. Polling shows an overwhelming majority in favor of allowing Sunday sales, but a strange coalition of Evangelicals, bar owners, and (wait for it...) liquor store owners (who don't feel like paying their employees 7 days/week) have managed to convince the Legislature and Governor that the apocalypse will come to Georgia if stores are allowed to sell alcohol on Sunday.
Now it's your turn - what sucks about where you live?
