A digital audio recorder
A "More dots! More dots!" Jinx shirt
A $50 Best Buy gift card (one of the electronic message ones too! It's programmable!)
A package of socks
A package of boxers
A soldering gun
A "penguin in a suit" statue

Sometime within the next 10 hours I will also get a nice fleece blanket, and some other mystery present from my girlfriend. *is clueless as to what it could possibly be*

Edit: the mystery present was a game, Apples to Apples

Some perfume and clothes from my woman, and drawings from my kids.
Christmas is primarily for the kids around here, and parents don't get that many presents ;)

Working at a sock mill, I usually give lots and lots of socks. I took socks to give away at StrolenCon.

So far (after doing this for close to 5 years) I have yet to hear a complaint and several people have requested more.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.
