That means it's the SECOND worst movie ever.

How long did it take you to do that?  What is it made of looks nice but the pic is small. How about a close up of the detail?

Not sure I'd call that showing off.

A warning more like.

This is gonna sound really weird and I'm probably the only one that thinks this. But after the first one came out and I heard how badly it did, I thought the screenplay went about it all wrong and should have had a different approach, similar to that of The Princess Bride...

The D&D movie takes place in someone's home wherin the owner and a bunch of friends sitting around playing. As they are playing the scene shifts from the house to the gamed campaign, maybe even with the same plot as in the original movie.

Think about it, you're watching the movie and there is always that once tense moment in which one of the players is cornered in some castle or crypt or whatever, by some monster the DM threw in. As the monster is about to strike, you hear the words, "I gotta go to the bathroom!" come from it.

Boom, the scene shifts back to the room where the campaign is being played, the guy gets up, goes to the bathroom, while conversation takes place among the other players who help themselves to another Mountain Dew or whatever, maybe the director inserts a subplot here separate from the game itself...

Guy comes back from the bathroom, playing resumes and the scene shifts back to the castle and the main plot...

Just a theory...

SO basically you want to do a documentary style reenactment of how Dragonlance was written.

Sturm's death on the wall was a roll of a one backed up by a one.

Its 14 guage galvanised steel. with 12 guage copper trim (to the eye it appears the same guage)

It took me about 3 weeks to turn it out. The rings are 5/8's inch inside diameter.

I have yet to weigh it but its definately one of the heaviest pieces I've ever made.

I have to start a suit of stainless plate next. *sigh* first I need a new dishing bowl.

LOL! To be honest, I've never read or played Dragonlance and have no idea who Sturm is. I pulled this outta my arse.

BTW, per my rogue this is about a *real* D&D game, not a Dragonlance farce (He thought the books were decent but the game system was awful!)

Phwew...OK, time to set things a little straight:

Dragonlance came about from a D&D game.  D&D is short for Dungeons and Dragons which is also the game system the movie we're disgussing here in this thread.

Ok, just to clarify...

DRAGONLANCE was a subset of D&D...it is has a different set of rules than standard D&D OR AD&D. And what I was saying was that my rogue did not like the rulesets for Dragonlance, there is a drastically different ruleset there. Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk and several other worlds have their own D&D rulesets.

Aw Damn, really? ...and here I actually thought I came up with something original... (bad wenchie!) :-(  

Then again, it doesn't surprise me. This board *is* a font of knowledge when I need to find out anything about pop culture or, hell, about all things geeky even...

(No, really, I've never heard of the movie!)
