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!
Sometimes I wonder what it would have been like growing up in a family that was even a little bit religious, just in terms of how my perspective on things would be different
My grandparents raised me and they believed in God, but they didn't talk about it much and I've never known them to go to a church ever except for funerals. They didn't approve of me deciding that all religion was bullshit and asked me to keep comments like that to myself, but that was about all they ever said on the matter. I'm thankful that they weren't more religious and pretty much let me figure it out on my own.
As far as the player characters are concerned, the GM is an eternal, omniscient, and omnipotent being that transcends reality. Of course, the analogy breaks down a bit because they never read the PhB, the players do, but still. I think Viv was just making a silly DnD joke anyway
