Backpack of Holding by ThinkGeek

We’ve had a Backpack of Holding for a while now. It was basically our Bag of Holding with backpack straps. We were making do with what we had. You know, sort of like how you have your 10 ft. pole and your rope and you ask your GM if you can make a fishing pole out of that. But in the background, our merchant who’s obsessed with bags was busy deep in Dwarven caverns, forging a new, better Backpack of Holding. Behold. The Backpack of Holding! (2.0.

Bureau of Underground Land Management or something like that…..

 

My kids are now 12 and almost 10 and old enough to read the complex rules of D & D. Since it was Spring Break they spent some time creating their first characters and today was the “introduction session” I’ve personally been gaming for a few years but do NOT consider myself an expert gamer at all. In fact I’m a very shy gamer normally…. I can’t be shy in this game thus my character is a bureaucrat of the “Underground Land Management Office” and in charge of the miscreants that have to keep me alive so they get their freedom back.

First roll of the game by elder kid

<insert sound of a D20 rolling>

“so what did you get?”

“UMMMMMMM a 1”

“critical fumble you see nothing!”

It was a spot check.

Next roll….. younger kid <insert sound of D20 rolling>

“well, what is it?”

“A 1!”

“really? eeek”

another spot check.

I think my character is in trouble!

Take Out Box Laundry Hamper by ThinkGeek

The Chinese takeout box is pretty much the universal sign for Chinese food in America. And also like most Chinese food in America, its origins have nothing to do with China. It was actually developed in Chicago by inventor Frederick Weeks Wilcox who was looking for a better way to package shucked oysters. Our favorite Chinese takeout boxes are filled with Chinese food (something spicy, plz), but these days you’ll find Chinese takeout boxes filled with anything. Wedding favors… Brought to you by ThinkGeek.

Crit Happens T-Shirt – Black, XL

That night when you’re rolling well, when the dice are with you, when everything’s going your way… those games are great. Better if it’s going that way for the whole adventuring party. And stellar if somebody remembered that can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies for the queso. But you know where your war stories come from? The failures. The really epic, spectacular failures…

It’s Not Failure If You Do It Later….

Here’s a lovely planner with a wonderful saying by good friend and author Stephen H. King. I met Stephen years ago online, met him in person and became long term friends with him over time. Eventually he was my friend, college professor, dean and now author of several great fantasy novels. If you like to plan things this is for you. If you forget to do things and delay tasks you did not fail you just need to rethink your plan!
