    I don't know about old school, just that we like to try different systems. In the six or so years we've been playing together we've done D&D, Pathfinder, In Nominee, Dresden, and are now playing 7th Sea. Which is kind of like Princess Bride meets Pirates of the Caribbean and is tons of fun!

    That sounds epic!
    Yeah I'm not that well informed yet, I just do a mix between reading some and learning by playing, I probably should read some more lol. It's just so many interesting aspects to d&d, for instance I just found out how to make maps in gimp..
    Thank you so much nandi sedai:-)

    Hi cassie sedai! Sorry, but what is the shatayan title? And would you be named by both titles or only one?

    Welcome to TV! Hope you enjoy your time here.

    As you can see, many of us are gamers and D&D players. I recently started up a campaign for my two sons and their friend! It is nice to get to play again, it had been a long time!

    That's how I was in the beginning. I did most of my learning by playing. It wasn't until we played In Nomine that I read my way through every available book because the world interested me so much. I did the same when we got to 7th Sea. But I don't think I've done more than flip through the books looking for what I'm going to do to level up for things like Pathfinder.

    I’ve always interpreted it as the handle to a hand and a half sword.

    Really? I can see the draw of a weapon with multiple ways of usage, still if I were going with a sword I think I would have gone with a longsword personally..what facinates you with the one and a half ones, and do you have a favourite?

    To be fair, I chose the avatar 17 years ago, when I was 19, just thinking it looked cool. And when I came back in August, I kept it. :lol

    Favorite weapon when I was a kid were the nunchucks, because Michaelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When a bit older, katanas, now long distance like crossbows. Just because, why engage at close range if one doesn’t have to?

    I'm just curious by nature, it could very well be you had discovered something wicket cool about them I hadn't.
    Excactly! Especially a warder that often would travel alone or only with their aes sedai, you may often be in minority. I like the thought of Ashandarei, I am not entirely convinced if it would actually be practically doable in RL, but I like the thought of it being well balanced so it can be used as both a polearm and a more deadly bo stick.. Also a good sabre and/or some different kinds of daggers, for sneaking up on enemy, and also throwing..it's only semi long ranged though so probably would need a long range one too...oooh sorry I'm babbling away:$

    Hi there Onis Sedai and Cahalan Sedai, lovely to meet yah! :-)
