    Default 101 Ways to Tell You're Addicted to RPGs

    Some of us may be a little too into DnD, Shadowrun, or just Tabletop games in general. Sometimes, we even see this strange world called RL in terms of Tabletop mechanics. So, what could be the symptoms of having played a little too much?

    Remember: This thread is purely for fun! Come up with creative and humorous examples!

    1. Every fall you make is a failed Reflex save. Even in RL.
    2. Whenever you look for a missing object IRL, you wonder if it really isn't there, or if you just kept failed your Spot checks.
    2a. And you try to curse the DM.
    2b. Do these spectacles give a bonus to my Perception?
    3. Crud, my mother's angry at me for staying out late, better roll my Diplomancy...

    5) Whenever you read a book you find yourself mentally making a new class for something tangentially related to it.

    8. When you get kicked in the crotch, you keep telling yourself 'Non-lethal damage' to ease the pain.
    9. You think craps is a rules-lite tabletop RPG.

    13. Saying you're failing your will save against death to mean that you're losing your will to live.

    If I wanted you to use gendered pronouns for me, I'd have a gender marker. Amkii, Kayros, Legio and The Hunter shouldn't be referred to as male either.

    14) You refer to Grandma as an Arch-parent because you know she's high level when she can summon and control other parents.
