    After closing one chapter it is time to start a new one.  My name is Cob and I live in House Springs, Missouri, USA.  I’ve got all new gamers and started a new story in my world of Skell.

     

    Some of the old timers may remember me.  I recognize a few of the names here.  If ENoa ever stops in tell him I said hi.

     

    Long live rpgmp3!

    Welcome back, good sir! 🙂

    A bit of browsing for information about your previous exploits here on the site turned up these resounding words of endorsement:

    I like the setup on the world of skell and your use of Norse mythology. You play a bit more hard core then I, but it is interesting.

    For some reason everybodies voices/accents keeps making me picture the characters in my head as cattle drovers more then anything else, but that is my problem.

    I like World of Skell, and you’ve got to admire a world that’s been going over 20 years!

    And that was almost a decade ago – does that mean the World of Skell is over 30 years old, by now? 😮

    PS: Kudos for being one of the few people who sent voice mail to @[member=”Hal”], back in the day. 🙂

    Hi Cob!

     

    Welcome back, and I’m glad to see a fellow Missourian!  😀

     

    I’m from Bonne Terre, so fairly close, as the crow flies.

    Yes.   Many fond memories of inexplicable gamer decisions, stupendous dice rolls, and friends sitting around the game table.

     One of the cool things is as I’ve grown older my knowledge of medieval times has increased and I feel the little details bring out the DM in me.  The game keeps my mind from totally accepting what nature wills.   D&D, along with my children, keep me young at heart.   The gods know there are enough things in this world that try to stamp out creativity and imagination.  

     

    As long as I can roll the bones….my old bones will “roll dinkus” (roll damage for those who do not speak Chexxan).

    Fond returns to the community!

    I’m curious, as the keeper of a 30 year old setting, what system of D&D it uses or has used?

    Started with 1E then stuck with 2E when that came out.

    Inevitable follow-up question: what’s your opinion on THAC0? 😉

      I’m sure there may be easier ways but since it’s what I am used to I “get it” and can quickly tell the players if they succeed or fail.  Though clunky, THAC0 is ok.  Kind of like Standard definition tv is ok and since it costs more to get the HD my moral code tells me SD is justified.  I’m an old curmudgeon at heart so I let my geriatric flag fly.

    You and I can no longer be friends.

    Sounds like a euphemism for “adult diaper”. 😉

    Phonetically speaking I must disagree.
