It's happened every single D&D thread in the history of the Forge. The very words act as a stupid-pill.

Raven, the snoozing giant example is obvious, and totally consistent with what I've been saying. In that case, the party does overcome the ogre, by doing something and sneaking past it.

Are you not paying attention? I said, the other two hyenas ended up being just Color. That is not the same as rolling dice and sneaking past the ogre.

And if one more person tries to explain to me that social encounters don't give XP if they don't constitute a chance for failure of some kind, I'm gonna kill'im. Folks, I wrote the Gamism article. I made it clear already that I'm using that logic for social encounters. You don't have to explain Challenge to me.

All of you are falling into the trap of arguing against people who are not here, participating in debates that are not occurring here. You are letting "talk about D&D" as a familiar phenomenon creep into your heads, with all of its little roles and interactions and ever-repeated points.

I appreciate all the attention, but now that the stupid pill has kicked in, it's time for me to close my thread, and look forward to the next session.

Best, Ron
