    Anyone who messes up nerd v. geek this way should be required to walk around in a giant chicken costume.

    DM: Your party comes upon a band of blog trolls. Upon seeing your valiant party, they start throwing taunts at you that cause 1d4 psychological damage.

    CPP: My 15th level wizard casts the spell “StockCritique®” at those fukken riffraff.

    DM: That’s a powerful spell for those poor bastards. 2d20 plus a +10 BSD modifier is a bit of an overkill for something with so little HP.

    CPP: My choice, dickeweed. They’ve conflated separate and easily understandable issues for the last time!

    DM: As you wish. Go ahead and roll.

    CPP: [rolls] 34! Plus my +10 modifier that makes 44 damage, bitches!

    Cultural, right.

    @Grumble
    Led Zepplin rates up there with Rush as the nerdiest of rock bands (not that is a bad thing). "Cool" bands deal with grown-up issues like lovers leaving you, not fantasy and SF tropes.

  • drugmonkey says:

    Actually it is as much a Boomer reference as a GenX one, Potnia.

  • k elliott says:

    Just ignore it DM. That's sheer jealousy.

    I am curious what my alleged "avowed distaste for nerd culture" entails.
