Normally, my Boots of Swiftness cause a -1 drop in vision because I'm moving so fast. But I feel my tears take away another 2 points.

Wow. I am unexpectedly bummed out by this.

I was just thinking the other day how much modern computer games owe to D&D. It's not just the fantasy setting, it's the different attributes, hit points, equipment lists, etc. All that came from D&D.

And just to show how ahead of his time Gygax was, consider this: World of Warcraft (essentially simplified online D&D) has 10 million subscribers. That would make it the 80th largest country in the world: bigger than places like Austria, Israel, Switzerland and Finland.
