It appears that we don't have a thread for the rollers of d20s and the players of roles.
I am remedying this now and with great intensity.
Got a great story? Have some homebrew you want to share? Want to argue the finer points of rules and whatnot? This is the place for it.
To start things off...
I'm actually still pretty new to playing (only been playing for a few months, but my interest has been for longer). My first character ever died in the first session I ever played, due to me being an idiot and forgetting that I had put ten ranks into Escape Artist and that it would be far more handy to do that than trying to stab the alligator in the eye. Learning to DM has been moderately more successful.
