I can understand that last feeling quite a bit seeing as how my sister moved all the way to New Zealand almost a decade ago. It's a good thing that she's here now for my wedding. It's a good way for us to meet each other again and get that much closer. As someone who encourages us to get excited and make something, what's stoping you from getting excited and do something to get closer to your siblings?

Oh man! This show would be awesome if you were to play Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre. It's a perfectly silly game that requires people to act funny and overplay everything. That wouls be cool on camera.

An evil laugh and charming grin

I have managed a not so small victory in having my girlfriend watch the big bang theory on a regular basis. We do not laugh at the same jokes but, as you say, baby steps. Speaking of the big bang theory, I believe that you ar more akin to your evil self than you would let us beleive because now I'm stuck in my cubicle humming "The internet is for porn" and shall probably do so for an indefinite amount of time. Well played Mr. Wheaton, well played. G!

No further back than 10 months ago I used to game once every week at the verry least. My group of friends that I have known since highschool got together, played tabletop RPGs, ate snacks and drank beer. A weekly ritual that has been going on for 15 years (not the beer, obviously). Then I had a daughter. She is the light of my life and I will never regret her in any way. And yet, she takes up so much of my energy and time that I haven't sat down to roll dice since her birth and I have the itch take me now and then. The problem is that I still get invitations and the back and forth emails from game nights and I can't participate. One day I'll get to play again and, hopefully, one day I'll get to play again with my daughter. I hope she will be able to enjoy what has been part of half of my living years. Untill then, I'll just pick up my books from time to time and flip through untill I can go back to adventuring with my friends. I miss it but being a dad is just too important and fulfiling right now. It can wait a while longer. G!

If it weren't for all the copyrighted material, I'd say lets start a kikstarter page to at least finance a few webisodes to give us fans closure. Sadly, I doubt it could happen. G!

Damn you Wheaton (Well, no, not really) It's your fault that I have a couple of buckets and weird tubing laying around everywhere! No grain yet though. All that because you made it sound cool. And yet I don't regret it... yet. Time will tell. G!

You know, it would be awesome to release some of those Eureka blogs as a fill-in-the-blanks blog post. I'm sure we readers could come up with some wacky hijinks for your days on set :) G!

This is completely off topic but, I was bored and decided to read through your archives from the begginings in 2005 and I see you totally predicted cloud computing on october 26th 2005. Now, games like Torchlight totally save your games on the interwebs. You're a visionnary! G!

Similar design flaws were included in my old refrigerator. It was actually in the freezer part of it. In the freezer door, there was a compartment that allowed you to top-feed cans of concentrated juice that allowed you to just pull one from the bottom of the rack. Well, when you filled it up to it's maximum of 5 cans, the bottom one would sling-shot out at maximum velocity the first time you opened the freezer door. You'd hear a *Pop* sound followed by a *thud* as the cardboard wrapped frozen mush of sticky doom found it's final release on the ceramic tile. Getting that stuff out of the grout was always so much fun

Damnit, now I need one. Ithink the only problem will be that my mind will require me to put the mug in the microwave and ask it for Tea, Earl Grey. Hot... And nothing will happen, of course. But my mind usually gets its way, sadly. *sigh* Here's to my girlfriend rolling her eyes at me in the near future. G!

Anyone tried to make the transfer to Kindle yet? I'd like to know if the conversion works wel before committing to the PDF version. If that fails, I'd rather have a perfect dead tree version than a bugged digital version. Still, can't wait to be 12 years old sitting on ye ole shaggy carpet in my parent's living room again. :)

Monster switch FTW. I for one usually just adapt by improvising. So the fight is a bit too easy because they roll like gods? Fine. Lets readjust the monster's HP on the fly and make sure he goes down on a very climactic moment. The rules are used as a basis but we know enough of the game to wing it and to give a fair rendition of a 10th level wizard for a single encounter.

Basically, your POV is that you won't give WoTC your money for a new edition. That's cool and I'm in the same boat. I have too many 3.5 books at home to just up and huck em away for a new toy. I mean, add all the completes, the heroes of battle, the 4 MMs, the planes, etc. and you end up with a hefty book shelf and a total monetary value beyond what I'd imagine I spent so far. But, 4E isn't bad. Way I see it, it's just not for those of us who have been playing 3.5 for so long. 4E is more for the new players and would be the system I'd use to introduce the younger masses to the joys of tabletop roleplaying. It's faster paced in combats, better explained and just plain flows more naturally to those who have never held a d20 in their lives. Granted, I'll not use it for my regular games nor do I want to switch systems in any forseeable future but that's because I have this comfort zone in which I live wth 3.5. It's a familiar old friend that has been with me for so long. Of course I said the same thing when 3.0 came out oh so long ago but, that's an other story. 4E was suposed to be, for D&D, what the new SWRPG edition is to Star Wars. It's there to fix things a bit, make classes more balanced, combat faster paced and roleplaying as a whole more accessible. If it manages to bring in new blood to the world of the polyhedral dices, power to us then.
