I won't descend into the latest teacuptempest, since I generally try to avoid that sort of thing here in Rust Monster-land. But Alzrius' deleted ENWorld post, thankfully reposted by JoetheLawyer at his Wondrous Imaginings blog, pretty much echoes my own thoughts on the topic. (And in such a wonderfully sarcastic tone!) If you've been following this topic on Teh Interwebs, you should go read it. (Hey, it garnered a Sunday post from me - that alone should tell you something. /wink)
"To me one of the best parts of DMing is that you get a chance to build all sorts of fun static pieces like monsters, dungeons, wilderness environs and then you let players loose on them to see what happens. Usually it involves watching your toys getting broken, but hopefully the players do an interesting job of wrecking your precious creations."

Order of the d30
Since I bought my first d30's with the Armory's book of d30 tables several decades ago when they first came out (back when they were numbered 0 to 9, three times - none of this fancy 1 to 30 business!), I figure I can claim membership in this Order!
