Because I’ve seen some general confusion regarding this topic, I thought I would shed some light on an issue that seems to be corroding the minds of the youth worldwide…
3 Simple Things
That is a rather fun and wacky series about a weird little guy that travels around the world with a greedy and liberal (liberal as in “I’ll loose my panties if it get’s the job done”) girl trying to find some mystical stones that can grant you a wish if found. Along the way, we have a cast of very memorable characters and a rather witty humor. Good times.
That is a rather stupid and endless series of dick measurement and “gee I wonder if the same think that happened with the last ten thousand bad guys is going to happen again” moments that stole quite a few days of my young life. It has its moments, and they are trying to stay afloat in a sea of mediocrity.
This is the single worst plot device that I’ve ever seen… certainly the first that I saw in a movie/tv series. You D&D people have nothing on Dragon Ball… they started messing with fluff and crunch waaay before you did, and did so in such a way that I’m sure you wouldn’t dare to try. It’s in your face! much like that Wizard that can’t help the stressed out fighter because he “might want to use the Sleep spell later” or the cleric that can’t use his Sacred Flame to cook some sausages.
No scouters, that’s for sure. And be on the lookout for meta-game considerations that creep into your game. Nothing breaks suspension of disbelief like someone telling you that you can’t hit the orc in the arm because “the rules don’t support that.” Quick one today, be on the lookout for more roleplaying goodness soon.
