OK, it's official...I think I have seriously fucked up my shoulder.

Years and years ago, I bounced too high on a trampoline, missed a landing, and hit the ground, hard enough to knock my right shoulder out of joint. Since that time, it has occasionally popped back out, if hit hard enough and in the right area, and I could always put it back (painfully!). But that shoulder has never been fully OK; sometimes it just hurts, the joint pops if rotated fully, etc.

Well, lately, it has been acting up even worse, and moving all these boxes, etc., hasn't helped any. It's in constant and serious pain, no matter how it is moved or even WHETHER it's moved or not. Not cool, considering it's my stronger arm.

Another reason I need to find a job, and I can get back on insurance and have it checked. Fuck.

And jusy what would my own stats be in my beloved AD&D world?

Str: 12
Int: 13
Wis: 16
Dex: 16
Con: 15
Chr: 18

Yep..."Paladin". Or "Mage"...or "Theif"...or "Cleric". Eclectic and 'jack-of-all-trades' as usual. Didn't see THAT one coming either, eh, Isaac?

Well, color me unhappy.

Somewhere in the move between me coming to the West Coast and my stuff going to New Jersey and then DMG has disappeared.

For those of you uninitiated, that means 'Dungeon Master's Guide', 2nd Edition...the Bible of AD&D. After they cleaned up the rules, before they were raped by Wizards Of The Ass-Reaming Coast. Yes, I have the fucking thing memorized (ask my former players), but that isn't the point.

I've had that book since it was published in 1989. 10 years of notes in the margins, house rules, re-writes, sweat, blood, tears, food stains, drink rings, dents from whacking tables and players...all gone. Most of all, memories, gone. I've owned that book longer than almost anything else I have.


At least I still have the Bogey Table.
