Hello Ryan,

Congrats on being GotW.

Your profile says that you own Champions 3e.
Have you played recently?
Do you GM/play in a group or one-on-one with a single hero?

I have never played it... I picked up a NOS box of lead miniatures at the used book store. Cause I have miniatures disease. & these are old school 80’s goodness. They do have a lot of those Champions ‘zines for sale. Or they did. I should look at those.

When I DM, it’s for my son to play solo. He plays 5 characters in D&D and HeroQuest. For FFG’s Star Wars, he plays it solo. Lot of GM hand waiving & “give me a skill check.”

It was great fun to play 1e as a lone hero back in the day. 3e looks significantly more polished.

We have a key holder where all the house & car keys go. Have you asked your dog or cat or other visitors/guest/permanent residents if they hid them?

We have a problem with a certain small child taking things (keys, coasters, remotes, etc.) here and hiding them. This nameless small child hid a TV remote between the couch cushions & “pet guard” blanket once. Only discovered it when I ran my arms across to check for lumps... after damn near ripping the room & house apart looking.

They probably fell out of a pocket when you sat down. Absent help from another to hide them, of course. Mine tend to fall out of pockets more than anything. My glasses do this too.

Hope this helps.

A barbarian from Cimmeria. Think it’s an all barbarian party.

“Ariel. Duh. No crown. Red hair. Aurora(Sleeping Beauty) is over there with blonde hair, pink dress, & a crown.”

My son dodged this bullet.


Haha love it! Delayed question: Who is then your favorite Disney princess?

Watched the movie as a kid. Cool.

Watched the movie... and a lot of others because of my daughter is in the "princess phase" of life... I can't take Snow White the character. Pass.

1- The year was 1992(?). It was at a Boy Scout camp out weekend. One of the older kids and I went for a walk around the whole camp. We started playing a game. He was the DM, narrating it, and I was the "player". It was 100% theater of the mind. We walked and talked and had a great adventure. No dice. Just walking and talking. I was stoked. I got back to camp and my dad asked me where I had been. I said we were hiking and playing an awesome game! My dad asked me what it was called. I said: Dungeons and Dragons.... Well, dad wasn't happy and put the ka-bosh on my D&D career right then and there. (Nevermind we had a copy of HeroQuest and played that at home...) The 1980's hate hype was a live and well in my house until my son bought a copy of the 5e starter set. Grandkids. Getting away with redrum.

2- At the moment, I am playing a barbarian in 3 different campaigns in 2 different game systems. It's not a favorite, but it's easy. Please understand that when the barbarian is raging and the enemy wants to stop combat, yeah, no. My character can't just stop and call a truce. Player me knows you have some vital intel to share. Character me wants you dead. Gotta do what the character would do. Buh-Bye red wizard in Thay.

I just enjoy playing as a cleric or paladin.
