Ogres Have Layers!

Hey, Etesla and I sure do have a lot of "Interests" in common. Dare I crawl out from under my bridge and discover the wonders of nurd luv? Nah, probably not. Seriously now for a moment, has anyone here bought the d20 version of Call of Cthulhu? I've been a fan of CoC since I was 15 or so, but I'm just not sure if the d20 version is worth paying $40 for. Why the !#$%&@ does it cost $40, anyway? And while I'm on the subject of wasting money, has anyone heard about these "Revised" 3rd Edition books for Dungeons & Dragons? What a scam! Even White Wolf doesn't revise stuff that quickly!

Let me close by saying that the James Bond RPG ought to make a comeback.

That much oil in your hair cannot help your dice rolls.

Greetings everyone, first of all.

I'm an avid gamer, and I've played in or run a ton of RPGs. Lately I've been trying to get into a number of D&D games with new people to try new things and get some different perspective game-wise. I felt like playing with the same 4-6 people was getting me in to a creative rut. Same scenerios, same reactions, over and over. I've since played in about six new games. Some of the groups worked out, some of them didn't.

The question to all of you that I have is this:
Does anyone game with people who, for lack of a better term, have poor personal hygiene?

Perhaps my 4-6 constant gaming friends had spoiled me, but I started to meet a number of people that just did not seem to care about etiquette or good personal hygiene at all. I'm not saying you have to have just stepped out of the shower a minute before game, but sweet baby jeebus, a shower in the last day or two and some clean clothes would be highly appreciated! If you eat at the table, try not to simply start grabbing food with your hands and shoving it into your face with grease and sauce or whatever dripping down your arms and shirt. It's just not pleasant.

Just wondering if this is indeed the "norm" or that I just happened upon the slim few that soap seldom sees. I'm interested in seeing if anyone else has had these same misfortunes. Who knows, maybe some of you fit this bill. I hope not, for your sake and the sakes of those around you. *wink*
