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.

Soon to be followed by "How to survive a ceramic frog attack."

 The final book in the trilogy, "How to survive an attack by fake stones with cute, folksy or religious sayings molded into them." is still in the planning stages.

I see the author recovered from having his career nearly ended when his original work, "How to survive an attack by a lawn jockey." was take off the shelves after people complained it was racist.
Go an' tell me I'm ignored.
Kick my sad ass off the board,
I don't care, I'm still free.
You can't take the net from me.

-The ballad of browncoatone, after his banning by the communist dictators of rpg.net for refusing to obey their arbitrary decrees.

Other objects typically seen in gardens, dearie. At least around here. We have garden gnomes, we have ceramic oversized frogs and fake rocks with various sayings carved into them.

I've actually seen a few old fashioned lawn jockeys once in a while too.
