What to do when...
« on: February 17, 2009, 06:09:59 AM »
...you notice a submission with plagiarism clearly contained within it and you know you have read that exact piece somewhere else a while back this time only a few words have changed to try and cover it up.

Because i have found one such submission, yet i do not wish to press the matter as i am not well informed enough at this present moment in time, and am working tirelessly in order to find the original work.

If there is one thing above all that i hate it is plagiarism, the passing of of someone elses work as your own.

Any advice would be mosty highly welcome.

The answer is, take it to a moderator, preferrably Moonhunter. His Google-Fu is likely to help you find the original work.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

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.
