    But...a good DM will make allowances. What needs to be balanced is whether the person is exceeding the limits of the character. You may brilliantly negotiate with an orc and make a wonderful case why a villager should be spared...but if your character's charisma is 8...what is a DM to do?

    That said, good role-play should be valued over good rules-lawyering. I have never let the rules get in the way of a good game.
    I've always thought of 3.5 as being the equivalent of ASL. IMO, it removed much of the power of a DM.
    If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

        You should see a bunch of drug-dealing, weapon-carrying, Cognac-sipping gangsters play D&D. It makes no sense to some of the people I've met...

        People I meet in school still can't believe it when I tell them I play...

          This seems like a good place to post this D&D video/song. Enjoy

            I hear you, but I'm not sure I agree with that. Look at all the environmental books: settings in the desert became lethal. Settings in the cold became lethal.

            Sure, players could spec all over the place, but if the DM required folks to clear progress paths with them first, it was manageable. The cool thing about D&D was it was scalable. If the players got too powerful, just make the encounters more dangerous

              Nice. That is the best fething D&D video I have seen yet. Excellent find!
