Re: What is this place? — Introduction

@Tarbo: Would it be permissible to run an RP based on something other than the official D.net ruleset? Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this Q... Absolutely. The 'official' ruleset is just that: a set of rules that you can use. If you use another one--Pathfinder, World of Darkness, Gumsh...

Best wishes to your father for a speedy and full recovery. Hope the medication will turn out okay.

Maybe an apology is a bit much. Could be it's a cultural difference from across the Atlantic, but I don't feel this is apology material. It's a very good point that this joke would probably get you pilloried on social networks so, yes, putting it on there would be a mistake. But that may say more ab...

She is always predictably evil, but unpredictable in her actions because the writers have no real flesh and blood in mind when writing about Morathi. She is a writing construct, a symbol, which is why she can be present in every story yet never be the main protagonist of a story, much like the devi...
