Posted:So even the mighty Gygax fails a saving throw now and again...

Without him, I wouldn't be the geek I am today. I'd watch the movie as a memorial, but it's complete garbage... (except for Jeremy Irons hamming for all he's worth...) ..Actually, the second movie (yes, there is one, "Wrath of the Dragon God") isn't that bad, with a decent effects budget it could've been quite good really... (Both, of course, infinitely better than the cartoon series.)


A wise man once said: "You have two ears and one mouth, therefore you should shut the censored up and listen" (though, to be fair, he might not've put it _quite_ like that..)
