OK. A question.

Why not go out with Lister's reanimated corpse? :p
Three reasons:
1: the reanimated Lister smells worse than the original Lister
2: When alive, he had me freeze a non-functioning disk drive thus completely destroying it.
3: He recommended The Homesman <spit>


Conclusive, I would say.
Did you forget about the Roku fiasco?

My Half-elf rogue (with the assassin sub-class) recently hit Level 4. He has a 16 Dex and a 15 Cha. I am considering dipping a couple of levels into Warlock for him, or because I just like the idea of using sneak attack with my eldritch blast. Do you think this is a good idea or should I just keep going pure rogue?

Concerned in Carson City.

I suppose that's D&D not NetHack? Sorry can't help you then.

Geez. What's the point of playing a game with other people? :roll:

Diversity is what makes us great. The addition of a soupçon of Warlock will benefit us all.

You might also consider a smidgen of Dwarf.

He's asking about a character he's playing, not a recipe for Florida style Brunswick stew.

Does that pass for a question in Chicago?

Merely an additional explanation of Nyar's question.

Is that clear? :p

Should I make my Florida Style Brunswick Stew with Dwarf? I always figured them for kind of stringy.

Goblin though. That's good stew

If I am in a plane crash in the Andes and I have no food , but I do have the corpses of the other passengers and some salt, pepper, A-1 sauce and other condiments, is it morally acceptable to make my long pork tasty and delicious?

No. You must have someone to serve it to. What you are suggesting is rude and selfish.

If it is "to the death" then, clearly, no one: they are all dead.

I have the heart of a poet. I keep it in a jar on my desk. Do I need to change the formaldehyde occasionally or is it good to go forever?
