Steve: Alright so the makers of this module knew you would pretty much want to play Conan and one of his companions and they didn't want you to mess things up trying to make some sort of wizard or something. So they offer pre-made characters.

Zack: Hmmm, that exclamation mark is enticing. I am tempted to pick Conan just to play him as an effete whiner and drive you crazy, but no, I will pick the obvious number two choice.

Steve: You're going to play a girl?

Zack: Not exactly. I am going to play the lion-maned, be-skirted hero of Gunder. Nestor The Gunderman.

Steve: Do you know anything about Nestor?

Zack: I know he's got feathered hair and a policeman's mustache. What else matters?

Steve: Nestor is like one of Conan's truest companions. He began as his enemy but their mutual respect turned them into friends. Ultimately a priest of Anu has Nestor tortured and put to death and Conan goes totally berserk with revenge.

Zack: Nestor is a tragic, doomed hero. No matter how much he practices, no matter how much product he uses on his lovely locks, he is doomed to be tortured to death.

Steve: Pretty much.

Zack: Alright, I'm still in.

More WTF, D&D!?

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
