The spooky wizard who lives by the coast, if you get my drift. (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0032.html)

And, for all most of your D&D related acronym needs, there's this (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18512) thread.

I wouldn't go that far. Acronyms are a very condensed form of information, more of a shortcut really. Helpful if you already know what they mean, but not much use otherwise.

Every question has usually been asnwered before, so if you look hard enough you will find the answer without asking. You do not have to do that however, but is googling something to much to ask for before you post a thread?

Warrior of Tiger Clan.
In my first game freshman year, someone played a barbarian who introduced himself as Warrior of Tiger Clan. Never told us (in character) his name, for reasons never explained (in or out of character).

When he forgot his mini, he folded up some paper and wrote WoTC on it. He then got rather annoyed when I referred tohim as "Wizard" out of character. Took him a while to figure it out.

I was about to object to this statement with the words, "Ham sandwich?" but Googling that phrase has informed me of much more information than I thought existed on the issue.

And I ain't talkin' 'bout recepies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ham_sandwich_theorem).

Maybe they wanted to ask a person rather then a machine. Maybe they are newbies at this whole Internet thing, and didn't think to Google. Maybe they have a reason I haven't thought of, but made perfect sense to them.
Is it too much to ask to not to be condescending?

That's what google told me. It wouldn't lie, would it?

Spend enough time on forums, FB, MSN or just the Internet generally, and you get very good at working out what acronyms mean without ever having them explained. Iunno how, you just do.

Something that has DR against arrows and is vulnerable to axes. Just make sure you throw your axes at it, since it is very deadly in melee combat.
