Bondith: B.L.Z. Bub: HindiDiscoMonster: Empty H: Ryker's Peninsula: Even if you make your Saving Throw?
What if I call on Orcus and roll two zeros on two 20 sided dice?

I am too weak to let this go. I am ashamed of myself that I had to reply. Tip of my hat to you sir.

You can't roll a 0 on a d20.

i rolled a double 0 on two 10 siders when trying to make my save against the power of the Talisman of Ultimate Evil.... lost a good cleric that day... friggin 38th level too

Alright, fellas, that's enough. It's bad enough we've got this movie to deal with that bears only a passing resemblance to Tolkien. Now we've gotta deal with you bringing that Tolkien ripoff crap into this thread? We're trying to run a classy operation here!

I'm a rabid Tolkien purist, but the changes from the book don't piss me off too much.  For a few of them I can see why they were made.

Heat-resistant dwarves did bother me, as did the apparent serendipity of the giant gold statue pour being abandoned while underway the day Smaug attacked.

/Tauriel is too much unadulterated badass for me to complain about


First of all, the only die I can ever recall being used for saving throws in D&D is a d20, and I've been playing since 1st edition AD&D, when character levels came with cool names.

Second: Heat resistant dwarves are not all that implausible.  They were creations of Aulë, and were designed to be highly durable.  Furthermore, in the  Nírnaeth Arnoediad , the Dwarves of Belegost were the only forces able to withstand the fire of Morgoth's dragons, even that of Glaurung.

Decacarriers are units of power, not energy, smitty.

Saving throw for "Classy Operation" is 14 or better. Roll.

hardinparamedic: I never thought this day would come.
I never thought the Lord of the Rings-verse could ever get more basement dweller nerdy than an AD&D first edition rulebook-using group on friday night.
I never, ever thought that the neckbeards could get thicker.
YOU ALL SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELVES. IVE LOST ALL FAITH IN HUMANITY BECAUSE OF YOU!


Just wait until someone tells you the existence of furries.

bearded clamorer: One last thing. Could you float in liquid gold if you had a wheel barrel? Yes. I'm pretty sure a wheel barrel would even float in water. However, the wheel barrel would get pretty darn how fairly quickly. I don't think you could ride in a river of molten gold for very long without bad things happening.

I won a gold plated wheelbarrow for taking 2nd place in a Satanic fiddle playin' contest a few years ago, so I'm really getting a kick...


I won Star Fox by constantly doing barrel rolls, so I'm replying to your kicks
