I got my 4, 8, 10, 12, 20 and even a 100-sided dice right here. Been RP-ing since before they put the 'A' in AD&D. :pft:

And yes, they called me 'master' back then too. (DM). :groove:

I don't know what I was thinking. I cede Old Fart title to you uncontested.
Also Nerd Master.

It's about a creeping zealotry that people like Glaucon, Blue and I have noticed, and it's not even just restricted to the issue of OOC/IC. In the past I've been about to post about the creep but I but let it slide because I couldn't be bothered about getting into an argument.

One thing that's interesting about Glaucon, Blue and I is that we've been here since the beginning. Glaucon with his super secret but quite well known account, me as my original assassin av, and Blue as Blue. Back in the day a poster called Sita wrote a semi-jokey post about the different stages a RPer goes through.

The first stage is innocent, completely ignorant joy. You know very little about canon and rules and care even less. Then you discover them and become less innocent and more serious. Eventually the rules and canon become Very Serious Business. The final stage is that you relax again and stop taking everything so seriously.

It's probably not a coincidence that while Glaucon, Blue and I were posting on the gorums and playing in Ur BTB and early BTB, most of the 'but it's the rules!!!' types on here were playing in GE or weren't in Gor at all. Most of them will probably mellow out, not just on this issue, but on roleplay in general. They'll stop being 'jaded' by things that aren't really that important and learn to have a sense of humour about it all. So ultimately this thread is probably apropos of nothing.


Heh, I've been around since City of Laura and Telnus, Port of Cos on this av, and before that, even roleplayed once with Blue himself while a member of Torrid's panther girl band. Before that, I roleplayed in HTML Gor starting in 1998, I think. So far as Old Fart Street Cred, got it in spades. :lol:

I'll see your dice assortment and raise you a matched set of Chessex Pink w/silver Borealis Polyhedral 7-die set and a recent Christmas present, my new 20-sided ThinkGeek Critital die that lights up when you roll a 20. :lol:

(Started roleplaying D&D back in '82. The basic, blue boxed set. Keep on the Borderlands shit. Been totally in love with roleplaying ever since. lol)

I like how this thread has suddenly turned into "things we have in common". :lips:
