Sting Gaming Geeks & Roleplayers

I'm curious if there are other people out there that chuck the bones and talk in funny voices, while getting "pizza damage" on your character sheet.

I bought a book called J.R.R. Tolkien Artist & Illustrator and it had some interesting designs in it, but many of them were not really LOTR related.

I'm a big Sam fan.

I like that he is simple, honest, and a true friend from the start to the end. He's steadfast, caring, and is as tough as a doornail. He never gives up, and strives to finish...
