Hey, thanks. That actually does help.

Sure thing. Diets help too, but in truth I don't follow the P90X diet. In fac i just eat anything I want and as long as I follow my routine I still get pretty decent results.

Yeah. Dieting is not really... diets aren't the thing, it's the amount of calories you intake.

If you eat far too many calories, then you gain weight, but if you eat just enough calories for your level of activity, then you're fine. As long as you stay under your calorie limit daily, then it doesn't matter WHAT you eat.

I believe I once saw an article about someone proving that by a twinky based diet, nothing but twinkies and food suplements to make up for the vitamins and minerals and such.

Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

I can see how that would work. I take supplements and still make sure I have plenty of cookies every day. Probably because my workouts are so intense that I literally have to have up to 3200-3500 calories a day.

BTW Olothontor, I have a question about your username. It wouldn't happen to be inspired by the blue dragon of the same name in the 3rd Edition Forgotten Realms setting for D&D would it?

That, and the White Dragon from 1st and 2nd Edition D&D. You betcha.

You're the ONLY person who's ever gotten that, good job! I'm quite impressed.

Thanks, I just noticed and that was the first thing that came to mind. But yeah I remember Olothontor "The Minstrel Wyrm" from one of my Forgotten Realms books back in my D&D days (I believe it was Dragons of Faerun?). Those days are gone, but I still look there for lots of inspiration, along with other games and whatnot that I played in my younger years. I've actually been trying to build a red dragon for a while now, but I can't get the wing or head designs just right.

Awesome. I'm sad that it's no longer a hobby of yours, I'm still gaming strong after 12 years since I started (I was 6 at my first game, haha). It's good that it still serves you, though. Inspiration is a powerful thing, as sappy as that sounds.

That's great, actually, because 4e is shit. Revel in the 3.5e (although I would suggest Pathfinder, it fixes a lot of the problems with 3.5e and provides a really neat setting for the game world, lots of cool societal details and stuff).

I agree with Olothontor. 4e blows, which is one reason why I quit; another was the facet that WOTC quit making minis for it. The minis were one of my favorite parts! I remember the Saturnalia morning I woke up, found a small cardboard box sitting under the tree, opening it, and finding the incredibly rare 1st version of the huge red and gold dragon minis! I had a lot of rare ones, especially dragon-type minis (the dragons were always really cool, I thought). I also had the Dracolich, Aspect of Tiamat, and the Sorcerer on Black Dragon huge minis.

By the time I quit playing, I had at least a few hundred of the things, including the gargantuan blue dragon and the Legend of Drizzt scenario pack, which included a gargantuan white dragon. I actually still have my gargantuan dragons, but their sitting in a shoebox in my garage, along with my star wars minis who have yet to find a buyer.

See, we often used our Warhammer Fantasy minis and any others we found to supplement our collection of the prepainted minis. We have LOTS of minis lying around, haha.

Both of my parents play, so that also helps a lot.

I've never actually roleplayed with miniatures, but I must show you those I have:

I couldn't get pics of the red and gold dragons, the crown jewels of my collection. They are greatly missed :cry:
