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!
Went to our local magic Christmas party, which was a sealed event made up of a Modern Masters, A Savior of Kamigawa, A ninth core set, an innstrad, a Chinese Gatecrash and a random booster. Walked out with second place, From the Vault: Realms and a pretty slick Red/White Aggro deck. The greatest victory was introducing a filthy cur to the very maw of hell itself.
Multiple times I've started a D&D campaign with a dwarf warrior duel wielding (one handed) pickaxes. The fact I used to live in a small village and couldn't get regular access to my play group stopped it from going anywhere.
