Roll to hit?

Apparently, someone’s gone to an awful lot of trouble to create a new d20 source book called the Book of Erotic Fantasy. Yes, it’s the Dungeons and Dragons guide to sex.

There are rules for “special skills” and “feats” and a look at how various races and alignments view sex. It actually looks like it’s a very well done tome. But, as the reviewer put it: “There’s a reason why many people don’t include these issues in their roleplaying experience – some of the material seems awkward to bring into a game, especially depending on maturity level.”

I mentioned it to the Mrs. She’s always been a member of our little gaming groups, and she’s far more mature than I am. And even she couldn’t resist:

What’s your saving throw vs. STD’s?

Yeah, baby! A critical hit…ohhhh yeaaahhh…

Oooh a fumble… that’s gotta hurt!

You want me to do what? With an orc?!

Is that your bastard sword, or are you just happy to see me?

That’s some racial ability you got there…

Actually, come to think of it, all you folks fantasizing about Legolas and Frodo might be able to make use of this thing. It could be just the ticket for those folks that like to role-play without dice. Not that I’ve ever heard of anyone doing that. I’m just sayin’…

    Reminds me of a book I read a long time ago. It was called “Alien Sex”. Science fiction erotica. Interesting!

    I’ve written an ode to Legolas to the tune of Edelweiss but it’s kinda (really) dirty.

    Aragorn is rough trade, man. Good for, ya know, a random Saturday night but that Legolas can keep ya quivering on a Sunday afternoon.

    Legolas…quiver. Ah, clever.

    Hmmmm – does it come with illustrations? *EWG*

    As for Elf sex – I find it hard to want to sleep with a guy who isn’t going to even look mussed up afterwards. What’s the point of getting down and dirty if he’s not even going to break a sweat? That alone would give me severe performance anxiety. (oooh wait – Can women GET performance anxiety?)

    Now Aragorn… there’s a man who manages to look even sexier, the dirtier he gets. But since he’s human, I don’t need no stinking manual… *g*

    Seems to me, back in the day, the original Warhammer RPG had rolls for “disease”. Or perhaps that was just Arthur being sick and twisted because when the damn Dwarves had a night on the town there was ALWAYS a chance ONE of them would need healing…
