    That would be assault.

    Anyway... I`ve never played D&D. It doesn`t seem that fun. I mean, you`ve got to reference everything from a book. Everything is essentially on paper. Too slow and simple to be fun.

    Sadly, shortly after this picture was taken, all four of them went home to their mom`s house, locked their door, booted up the internet and "touched their own magic."

    D&D isn`t that great, I can`t see why it`s so popular. Warhammer 40K is far better.

    Your impression of D&D is basically wrong, though understandable since you`ve never played it. You don`t have to reference everything from a book (players know the rules) and very little of it is on paper. Most of it is in your mind. So it isn`t simple or slow.

    It`s similar in one way to reading a book - people who don`t do it by choice (or who lack either the intellect or the imagination to do it) often think it`s boring.

    Although it`s more like acting in a play that is partly improvised as you perform it than it`s like reading a book.

    Maybe you`d find it lacking in fun anyway, but it isn`t what you think it is.

    D&D is actually a lot of fun. I never thought it actually existed (I thought it was just something extremely nerdy for movies... just made up) but when I got with my now husband, I learned he used to play every weekend with his friends. I actually played with him and some of our mutual friends once, it was a lot of fun. It`s all the luck of the dice, but the Dungeon Master (The leader of the game) is the one that makes up the map (and it`s all in your mind, he gives details about it though) and then the scenarios you have to battle through. It`s really fun.

    To expland upon Angillion`s point;
    There are also many ways to play D&D, ranging anywhere from a heavily structured rules system including drawn out maps and figures, or a loose freeflowing system of mostly conversation where the book rules take a backseat to the story.
    You can have quick and messy kick down the door campaigns, or expansive stories that may take your group months or even years to complete.
    My friends kidnapped me and dragged me to their "nerdy D&D game" years ago now, and if you can by my name, it all worked out in the end.

    What you guys forget is that D&D is a social game. No matter how nerdy that social aspect may be.

    It`s a way to have fun with friends, just like any other game.

    D and D is a great game, just allot of people cant under stand the rules. The world of Dungeons and Dragons is not actually one world at all, but a nearly infinite number of realms and universes, all with spell casters, valiant warriors, and women with the most revealing chain mail bikinis ever imagined by the sordid minds of fourteen year old boys.

    The official website describes D&D as "an imaginative, social experience that engages players in a rich fantasy world filled with larger-than-life heroes, deadly monsters, and diverse settings. As a hobby game, D&D is an ongoing activity to which players might devote hours of their time much like a weekly poker game, getting together with friends on a regular basis for weeks, months, or even years."

    The below description demonstrates the level of imagination and story telling that goes into the game, because it certainly sounds much more interesting than "A group of people with nothing better to do on a Friday evening than to pretend to be heroes fighting mythical beasts with nothing but their wits, weapons and great many oddly shaped dice and tiny figures made of lead in order to rescue the elven princess with a Charisma score of 20."

    D&D is excellent. It is a great excuse to get old friends over once a week and share a story, a 24 pack, and 4 all meat pizza`s. Its good, clean fun where you can stab your friends in the back and laugh about it after you dodge their fist-full-of-d20s(improved evasion helps.)

    Incidentally, I`m still looking for a play by post game for any of these characters.

    Oh, and one non-legal build I made.
    Basically Skulk with Shadowdancer as a base class instead of a prestige. Progression is identical, with epic shadowdancer after level 10 to round out the class.

    Only change is throwing out multiple shadows for a single greater shadow with continued progression as previously.

    Apart from that: Horizon Walker and Exemplar.

    Basically a hide/move silently skill monkey.

    I played D&D once in my life (or at least one campaign). It`s not a bad game, I guess. The biggest fault with it is that, in order to play it, you need to buy extremely overpriced books and if you want more material... well, go buy some more books. And you can`t just play for an hour. Well, you could, but people don`t... they play for a drating day. You have to schedule a half-day to play a game. I think that`s silly.

    "Hey Dungeons & Dragons geeks, no matter how much you try, girls are NOT going to touch your magic."

    So false. I`ve gotten I`ve gotten seven beautiful ladies to play D&D and two of them touched my magic.

    Reaper8:
    Most of the content of the 3.x D20 system is available for free online. (I don`t mean you can download the book on bit-torrent, I mean the company that owns it allows it). Here you go.

    You don`t *need* anything else. Some of it is just cool.
    As for extra content, there`s this little thing called "homebrew", which basically means you can do it yourself. You can recreate anything in any of the expansions in your own head. Change rules. Change characters. Create your own settings, monsters, classes, feats, spells, skills, items, whatever.

    I ran a campaign for a year and a half without hardly ever referencing a book. Most of it was from my head. (I do own alot of the books, so occasionally if I was feeling lazy, I`d throw in some monster I liked the idea of).

    Also, we tend to play 4 hours a week, because we have jobs and whatnot. Occasionally we do 8 hour sessions if we get the time but that`s just special occasions. (The end of my 1.5 year campaign).

    No, I don`t play as a Paladin.

    An incomplete list of my current characters can be found here.

    Though I did play one in Diablo.
