    AP - there are witty comments incorporating Dungeons & Dragons references all over the net, but I'll take another tack: it's like when Vader struck down Obi Wan. RIP.

    Looks like he failed his Saving Throw vs. Death.

    That's why I keep telling people NOT to neglect their Constitution.

    As if anyone was in any doubt that I am a colossal nerd, I played just about every role playing game when I was a kid, from Basic: D&D to Runequest, to Paranoia, and Traveller. You name it I probably played it. I even bought the figures back when they only existed in speciality shops as a kid, Things That Go Bump in the Night was the company name (long since perished). Ah the memories, lining up skeleton hordes and having them fight to the death. Re-enacting the movie aliens as Corporal Hicks, in the quite obviously simillar RPG. Ah marvellous, wasn't it.

    Shame, a great deal of time wasted in that man's Universe as youngen.

    In a large way, youth is about wasting time; that is one way you learn.
