I don't know about the rest of you, but I enjoyed our non-D&D gaming on Saturday night.  I'd like to give Starcraft another whirl sometime in the future. To that end, I downloaded my own .pdf copy of the rules today, so that the next time we play I, at least, won't have so many damn questions to annoy Nate with.

Sociological Images Is Talking D&D

And wondering about the scantily-clad female on the cover of the 4E PHB. Some interesting discussion in the comments. I thought this thought was well-noted:

For those of you who have the 4.0 players handbook at home, I have a fun game you can play. It’s called ‘count the midriffs.’ Go through the numerous illustrations in the books and see how many characters have midriffs. Then, play that same game with the previous DnD player’s handbook (3.5). You will notice less ...midriffs in the previous edition of DnD. It’s funny how wizards decided that in the new edition nobody needs armor over their soft abdomens anymore. Maybe there’s a new spell that protects you from getting stabbed there? I’m not sure.

That and more here.
