Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I would like to say that I do solemnly swear that I will never, ever, ever play DnD 4.0, and if I ever do, you have my permission to come to my house and punch me in the face.

That is all.

(If I wanted to play World of Warcraft, I'd play World of Warcraft.)

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Haha I bet all those years ago, everyone was saying the same things about 3rd edition having played 2e for so long. I came into the game right when things were going from 3e to 3.5 so I'll always play 3.5. It's not perfect, there are some things broken with it *cough* Psionics, but it's certainly the best representation of D&D in my opinion.

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Greetings all. Is it just me or are the pictures for Female and neutral pics unreadable?

In reply to Fareeda (msg #4):

You might try deleting your cookies and trying again too... The female and neutral pics are on a different server than the male pics and it occasionally goes down.  If it did and your browser cached the page, that may be why you're not seeing them.

I never like psionics anyway...2e psionics were pretty confusing.
But yeah, I've been playing since 1st edition (no, please don't stop to consider how old that makes me). I was a bit skeptical about 3.0, but I gave it a chance.  I read through enough of the 4.0 material to decide that I would never ever want to play it.  Ever.

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Give it an hour or so. These things usually fix themselves :] You could try a different browser also?

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I knew I'd seen this before--if you click on FAQs in the upper right hand corner, and then "View RPoL Information", it will tell you whether or not the portrait servers are down. It looks like they are both up, so if deleting cookies and cache didn't do it, I'm at a loss...but I agree with Thread-Weaver that it will likely fix itself. :)

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I put your portrait up that you had for fareeda in Shadow of the Witch-King. let me know if you want another.

Off to bed now anyway - indeed that's a good way to get some conversation going, where's everybody from? Out in the countryside in England here, just moved back from uni in London. I'm appreciating the peace and quiet but I wonder how long that will last :]

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I tried a little bit of 4.0 as the former group was excited about it.
Seems a little simplistic.  I did like the greater movement and encouragement to use variety of powers, but it felt shallow compared to 3.5.  Definitely a "I'd rather play Warcraft than 4.0.  Unsurprisingly, the group never went anywhere with it before I moved, and I haven't bother picking up a book for it.  Unless the games here all disappear, I cannot see the enticement to do otherwise.

(and regarding playing since 1st ed... I recall Chainmail, and still have the coloured box D&D (with the old dice you crayoned in yourself) somewhere after the move)

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Actually I did receive the Dragonquest beginner box set on my 7th birthday I believe. If that counts maybe I'm a veteran too! It had like a different card for each monster, piece of equipment, trap, character etc. was so awesome. I can still remember trying to teach my parents the rules so we could play - and failing. Oh to be an only child...
