Steve: Paraelementals are way cooler than regular elementals. It's like, about boundaries and between states.

Zack: I think it's about their need to come up with more versions of the same monsters, but they couldn't do a Diablo palette-shift.

Steve: What? Paraelementals are classic. Gygax dreamed them up. They come from the paraelemental planes. Where the elements mingle.

Zack: Where does the ice come from?

Steve: Where air meets water.

Zack: That would be soda or something. Ice would be where cold meets water.

Steve: A-ha, but cold isn't an element, it's negative energy. From the negative energy plane.

Zack: So what happens when water and negative energy plane combine?

Steve: They don't touch, water touches the negative material plane and makes salt.

Zack: They form the paraelemental plane of salt?

Steve: No, salt is quasielemental not paraelemental.

Zack: Burn forever.

Steve: That would be on the elemental plane of fire.

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.
