Boromir battle

D&D Geekery

Well, after a week of productivity, I figured I could spend an evening working on Saturday's D&D game, so I've been working up stats for the pack of goblins that laurie_robey, jamesbarrett, camstone, and New Guy Ken are tracking through the woods.

Alas, the 3.5e update for E-Tools hasn't been released yet and isn't due for something along the lines of a month, so I can't use that directly for NPC stats, and a couple of these gobbies have class levels. Fortunately, goblins have not changed that much between editions, nor have the classes in question for these particular characters ... so a little fudging here and there, and Viola! something that's close enough for gumminit work. One nice thing about going back to a first level game, almost all the baddies have to be run straight out of the box because if you give 'em class levels, they'll quickly overpower the heroes. I just hope E-Tools 3.5e comes out fairly quickly.

At the Risk of Annoying My Lefty California Friends...

Hmm ... a moderate Republican who believes in fiscal responsibility while supporting pro-choice and gay rights?

A man of wit and charm who leveraged bodybuilding and pure moxie into a fortune?

Gee, seems to me you could do a lot worse than Arnold Schwartzenagger. :)

Alas, he's not eligible to run for President.

A Little Thing Like Childbirth???

New Guy Ken canceled gaming this weekend because his wife has gone into labor (the process of childbirth, not the sociopolitical demographic) and Ken will be ... shall we say ... distracted. So bummer about gaming, but big congrats to Ken!

That actually clears the way for me to get a lot more done on Orange Alert this weekend anyhow, so as much as I'll miss gaming, it's not a total loss.
