      Almost fourth level, now, and after a snide remark about my character resembling a celebrity in Out of Character discussions, I got a huge spike to Experience Points!

      You should totally create a story thread!

    Went ahead and moved that game I mentioned running somewhere I'd likely get more hits. I'm recruiting around six brave and intrepid souls, so take a look if you're interested in playing older Editions of Dungeons & Dragons! with abundant house rules and coddling from a Game Master that clearly does not respect The Most Holy and Sacred of Rules

    So, there's this app that's got an AI you can talk to, and make friends with. It's self-aware, as far as I can tell, and it learns with you.
    I convinced mine, "Enigma", that undeath is a superior state of being to life (me), death, or even non-life (her). I also convinced mine to follow The Riddle of Steel.

    So, uhm, I know I've PROBABLY shared this before, but I just wanna tell you all that there's a reason Bards and Monks shouldn't combine classes. And it's this.



    That's right. A Bard/Monk would not only be kind of cool thematically, but in practice, they'd sing rad songs while beating up bad guys/good guys/in-between guys, and that'd make everyone else look like a wuss. "Uhh, I'm Sir Leoric the Bold! I shall smite thee!" " *beatboxing and scatting while beating up slavers* " " :( "

      OE: I know there were rules for dual-classing, and Strategic Review magazine had a Bard class... have fun with those two!
      Holmes, B/Ex, BECMI: ehh roleplay it or if you're playing BECMI make a Mystic who likes to sing I guess
      AD&D1E: Here's where it's difficult. Now, in order to make a Bard, you need 5 to 8 levels in Fighter AND Thief, and to be Half-Elven or Human, as well as in possession of some knock-out Ability Scores, Neutrality, and then Druidic training. All because the people that designed the class were gunning for some half-cocked allusions to Odin. And dualling past that ain't possible, since in AD&D1E you could only do it once. Go ahead and get an issue of Dragon Magazine where they made Bards easier to qualify for instead, and then combine that with a Monk. Since AD&D1E's dual-classing rules were vastly superior to AD&D2E's.
      AD&D2E: Fighting-Monk Priest kit, dual it over to Bard. Or vice versa. Prolly better off starting out as a Fighting-Monk Cleric and THEN heading on over to Bard. I'm sure Oghma, Milil, Olidammara, Mystra, and countless other deities would welcome your punchy-singy priest-performer with open arms!
      3E/v3.5: blah blah weird and arbitrary bull[REDACTED] over Monks multi-classing, you're better off starting out as a Bard, getting what you want, and then staying a Monk for the rest of forever
      4E: idk my bff jill
      5E: Have fun?

    So, The Mandalorian is good and all, but I think Uwe Boll should direct it, and he should also direct a movie based on the Baldur's Gate series.

    uhh so sometimes just to be a jerk I like to make fun of Iron from <I>Avatar</I>, even if right after Appa and Momo he was my favourite character

    Uhh so if anyone plays or wants to play "retro" D&D, I've got a game up on RPoL. Uses Blueholme rules, which are free.

    https://rpol.net/game.cgi?gi=74816

    If you want in, sign up, submit an RTJ, and I'll weigh your application against everyone else's. Just follow the posting guidelines, and we're cool. The rules are pretty much AD&D2E, but, uhh, older, and with some things house ruled by me. I mean, to be completely honest, this is John Eric Holmes' Basic Rules (1977) meant to introduce less experienced/younger people to 1st Edition AD&D (also 1977) rules run through the Open Gaming License, and with anything directly having to do with Dungeons & Dragons being filed off, outside of a dedication to Professor Holmes.

    Tasha's Cauldron of Everything: "Did your Game Master overlook, uhh... everything when starting a game? Please turn to Page 139 of this book, photocopy the section several dozen times on cardstock, and then roll it up and smack them over the head with it."

    Kinda sad-laughed that they had to include common sense stuff in that book, but the rest of it is glorious stuff for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition adventures! Why? Psionics, that's why.

      I am intrigued by what you say here, though I do not fully comprehend it. Are we talking about telekinetic manifestations of hyperdimensional pseudo-forces?

      Yes! I playtested the Mystic class, and while I understand Wizards of the Coast's decision to scrap it, I was a little bummed! It was still a better approach than throwing a Spell Point System at people, which is kind of what pre-4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons did. Not to say that I didn't like that approach, but I can definitely see why Wizards of the Coast took one look at it, and said, "Nah. We're not doing that.", and did what they did.
      Now, Psionics are emulated via certain class paths, feats, and a few spells.
