This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

There's an option that lets you choose your "class" (fighter, psionicist, rogue, wizards, or even plain old messageboard user). The title changes as your post count grows.

EDIT: Dr Rotwang! and flyingmice have "messageboard user" as class (either you chose that one, or simply left the default). I picked "cleric" because of the Spanish Inquisition joke, hence the Archcleric title (it began as Novice, IIRC).

Same here :D
