Kyle brought fantastic snacks–Milk & Cookies, but more importantly:
I changed where I sat at the table & felt like I had more room…
We used some new material which took a very long time to deliver, but when it arrived he loved it. People have asked me what we spent on the Mini & I think that the answer is $30, which seems high–but I think shipping and new material costs played a big part in this.
He designed a quick art reference

Recently, Brian asked me “what is the official order of D&D Character Stats”–which seems like a simple question, to me….In fact, I quickly responded with SIWDCCh, a word which is in my Dictionary and has been the only possible answer that I have ever heard or considered.
I base my response on this:
|1st Edition Character sheet|
Which was the first ‘official’ character sheets I ever saw. Before these were available I used pen and paper, but I did write the stats in this order.
I flipped through a recent notebook to ensure that I write them in the same order still:

The confusion starts with this 5th Ed Sheet:

The Stats are “grouped” correctly–with S & Ch book-ending the pairs [Dex / Con & Int / Wis]; but, overall this order is just crazy.

And there is often an expectation that Organized Play DM’s are somehow responsible for enforcement
Which is a little crazy–I mean, for me, personally, I have very little interest in rules enforcement of any kind….I prefer shops with more playful signage
But I bet there is some good justification for some rules & I am curious what that may be. Maybe it is time to start a new tumblr to post Game Shop rules?
