  • I’ve been listening to all the podcasts I missed because I’ve been in the middle of moving and stuff lately. So now that I’m dicking around the house and cleaning or whatever, I get one or two in a day, easy.

    I totally remember the magic item box in Ravenloft. 1 terrible, cursed magic item is bad luck. Three is a trend. Lock it in the box.

  • I couldn’t agree with you more concerning accepting and even embracing failure in RPGs. The times I remember the most were the many spectacular deaths my favorite characters suffered.
    Like the time Mr. Underfoot, my gnome fighter who wielded a war pick was killed in a duel with a wizard as they hunted each other in a conjured fog. We rolled intiative on each other-the wizard fired magic missle while I just hurled the war pick at him. We ended up killing each other at the same time (my gnome crited the wizard). The DM tried to keep my gnome alive but I didn’t let him because the death was way too cool.
    I got a dozen stories like that. But I’m wondering if you guys have noticed a generation difference when it comes to accepting character death and hard core gaming? Has WoW and other video games softened today’s players into cry babies if they don’t “win” at everything? I’ve noticed younger people weaned on WoW seem to have this problem.
