+ THE MUNCHKING +
**Thread started by and the term MUNCHKING created by Dave Brohman**

And the final note....

For times when the term munchkin just won't do, I give you the MUNCHKING!

How to spot the MUNCHKING!:

- In order to prove he is not a munchkin, he uses his weakest weapon in combat (a +5 Vorpal Knitting Needle).
- He ride into battle on an Avatar.
- He posts messages with title like 'NEW IMPROVED ANONYMITY'.
- He spent more time on his .sig than you spent on your masters thesis.
- He has yet to find a character sheet with enough room for "Level".
- He ticks off his magic Items in the ENCYCLOPEDIA MAGICA to save trees.
- He wears a t-shirt that says 'My other magic sword is ALSO an Artifact'.
- He is annoyed that the stat tables in the PHB only go up to 25.
- He insists on taking a Half Elf/Half Dwarf to get ALL the good bonuses.
- He insists that his last GM let him have the 'Rod of Seven Parts' ("See, it's right here on my character sheet beside 'Excalibur'").
- He thinks wizard spells are CUMULATIVE.
- He actually said "I played D&D with Gary Gygax at a convention" and seems PROUD of it.
- He is reading this post and getting angry.
- He penalizes players XP for wasting time talking to NPCs.
- He thinks that Elminster is a wimp.
- He thinks the Tarrasque is a wimp.
- He thinks GOD is a wimp.
- He thinks the DM is a wimp.
- His paladin puts on the Hand and Eye of Vecna, and Vecna's alignment starts changing to Lawful Good.
- He has Heward's Mystical Organ fully repaired and tuned up and sitting in his castle's basement gathering dust.
- He installed a mechanical play option onto the Organ to play complicated tunes without error.
- His Charisma is 25 and he doesn't even know what that means.
- He keeps telling the DM that the Treasure Tables are way too stingy;
- And he insists that the listed treasure type for 'Kobold' applies to each individual kobold.
- He uploads to AOL 35 poorly but painstakingly executed drawings of all
  the fantastically beautiful and dangerous women who cling to his character like lint.
- He (a different munchkin) downloads the above drawings, and orders his DM to let him have them as henchmen.
- The name of every spell he has ever researched begins with "Improved"
- He thought Tomb of Horrors was simple, even though he fell for every single trap in the dungeon.
-  His character has more HP than XP and he's not first level.
-  His friends stop playing with him "'Cause they're just jealous".
-  His character sheet is longer than the Encyclopedia Britannica.
-  He's sent a letter to the Vatican insisting they cannonize his character.
-  His armor has more pluses than a first grader's addition homework.
-  Reading about the character in the 'invincible PC' post gave him a warm fuzzy.
-  He has a law suit pending against TSR for not including his character in 'Legends and Lore'.
-  He's been published in the Dragon magazine April edition of 'unanswerables' more than once.
-  He thinks encumberance should be banned from play permenently.
-  he thinks character Hit dice are cumulative (ie. a third level paladin has 6 D10's worth of hit points).
-  When someone says 'D&D is just a game', he hugs his character sheet to his chest and whispers "He was only kidding... he didn't mean it."
-  He claims to be immune to tactical nukes becuase they aren't + 3 or better.
-  When his DM said the monsters also get crit hits, he attacked him with a chair.
-  His character's strength is Avagadro's number.
-  He claims to have killed the all the deities and demigods.
-  He laminates his character sheets.
-  (FR players)  Ao is his squire, and Elminster his scribe.
-  His character is his own deity.
-  He bought a three hundred dollar HP calculator so he could figure out how many gold coins he has.
-  His original character was gonna be a PALADIN-MAGE-DRUID-ASSASSIN-MONK, but when his DM wouldn't listen to his 'reasonable' request to suspend the split experience rule, he whined for a moment then chose his present character.
-  Finally, when he rolls dice it goes something like this: He uses the 12d6 drop the lowest 9 method twelve times and take the
six best. He then rolls again for yhis 'bonus points', only when he rolls and somehow fails to get three sixes, he says "Okay, this time for real..."
-He thinks that a Girdle of Storm Giant strength, guantlets of Ogre Power, and a Warhammer of Thunder of Lightning are a common combination for magical treasure and he gets mad if the Warhammer is not Vorpal w/life stealing Abilites.
- His character sheet has semen stains on it.
- His THAC0 is Planck's constant.
- He thinks ordinary munchkins are wimps.
- He devised a new ability generation system: 4d100, keep 3 highest.
- He disposed of all the regular magical items in the DMG because they weren't powerful enough.
- He expects his god to pray to him.
- His Dex is lightspeed.

P.S.- This is all in fun.  If you got angry, you are a MUNCHKING! and I
don't really care what you think!

"...He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any
world...  He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be sorry you ever saw him.  He talks as the man of his age talks - that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for
pettiness."

Raymond Chandler "The Simple Art of Murder"
