+Chris Hussey is she really from Iowa? Cuz the way she pronounces certain words I was guessing she was from northern midwest or Canada. So I guess I was close.

I watched 'The Wild Hunt' last night. If you'd like a more serious take on the LARP gone too far subject matter of 'Knights of Badassdom' check it out.

Yeah, I really enjoyed this movie, then it took that very dark turn and got real weird. Still, overall, it was an interesting film.

I really liked Lloyd the Conqueror -- I think it's my favourite LARP movie so far. :)

That's a pretty busy logo.

I think it's a nice bit of art -- I'm just not sure how that's going to look when reduced to logo size on a book. To keep all the fine white lines I'd imagine you'd need to keep the logo pretty big.

After some recent hubbub I decided to order the d30 DM Companion for $2 from DriveThruRPG.  For that you get 35 pages of random tables based on the d30 for use in B/X D&D and similar "OSR" games. Which is kind of nice since the 30-sided dice usually doesn't get that much use at the table.

If you like random tables for monsters, potion descriptions, or some new minor magic items this is worth the $2.

There's a section that lets you quickly create an NPC by rolling a d30 for each ability score and looking that up on a table based on whether their class would have exceptional (15-18), above average (13-15), average (9-13) or below average (7-10). I like this idea a lot. It's faster than 3d6 or 4d6 and you get the stats you need based on their class.

There's also an option for zero-level NPCs of different races. This is what B/X describes as "peasants, children, house- wives, workers, artists, villagers, townspeople, slaves, fishermen, and scholars." (B40) What makes this a bit controversial is it lists different values for males and females of the different demi-human races, similar to the way AD&D had different ability score maximums based on race and gender.

Like random monster tables these sorts of things give a strong indication of an implied setting. In the d30 DM Companion 0-level humans (peasants etc) have Strength from 13-15 for men and 9-13 for women. Since that doesn't affect characters with a class you could still have an 18 strength Brienne of Tarth character, so I don't find the inclusion of this terribly controversial.

Stranger though was the entry for Halflings. Male Halflings get Wisdom 13-15 but Female Halflings only get 7-10. Again, not controversial for me... but it really made me wonder about why it was like that. What is going on in Halfling households and villages? Is there any reference to that sort of thing in Tolkien or any other sources? Very unusual...

Overall I like the book and the idea of more non-standard random tables for settings. The less generic they are the more they make you think about why they're the way they are, and help you start mentally filling in the blanks without just giving you pages of background info to read.

The d30 companions are great. I used them to help create some setting fluff for a game I was running last year until health issues kept me from doing much of anything.

Also, I have 2 d30s, a Chessex model I bought because I wanted funky dice, and a green Armory that was a birthday present back when I was accumulating Zocchi dice. 

Among my other funky dice are; 1d3, 1d5, 2d7 (black and white), 1d14, 2d16 (for playing a halfling in DCC), 1d24, and a Zocchihedron d100 that was a gift from a friend last year.
