From the first-edition Dungeon Master's Guide. I've been trying to roll 66-75 my whole life. (Thanks, Bald Face Liar!)
Some fine, fine synonyms in that left-hand column there.
In elementary school, some boys got in trouble for talking about buying a “hooker” in D&D. Some of the girls heard them and complained about sexism and the like.
I don’t remember how it ended, but the upshot was that the boys maintained that a “hooker” was some sort of hooked weapon and they were not trafficking in sex. The girls did not believe them but had no way of proving otherwise.
We (I did not participate) were all like, 12. Jeesh.
this just makes me think of the Dead Alewives sketch with the guy in the kitchen yelling “If there’s girls there, I wanna do them!”
What’s the saving throw vs. venereal maladies?
I used to sell used RPG items on eBay, and whenever I listed a 1st edition DMG, I would include that table in the writeup.
Always sold ’em
“…and so forth”.
That cracks me up.
The first time any DM of mine included this table, he hit his dice, flipped a few pages, and stared intently at the page for a few seconds.
“What’s wrong, Dean?”
“Nothing, nothing. Sec.”
Fifteen seconds go by.
“Are we all dead or something?”
Pause. Flipping through the book, his notes..
“Guys. It says ‘Saucy tart’. What the hell is that? It’s supposed to be some kind of demon, right?”
I’d like to know exactly how one distinguishes a saucy tart from a wanton wench. Is there some kind of Audubon field guide out there or something?
#8: A wench is a serving woman; she has a job other than providing sexual services. For a tart, that’s her career.
#4 : perhaps you should check out http://www.acc.umu.se/~stradh/dnd/mirror/Assorted/ADnD_netbook_of_sex.html
(rolling for geekcheck … FAIL)
