See, this sort of thing makes me realise that The Fellowship of the Ring was unrealistic. How many times did you see the Fellowship break down and waste time arguing with each other in a life-and-death situation, ignoring the threat completely in favour of bickering amongst themselves on trivial matters?

None!

What sort of lousy roleplayers were playing those characters anyway?


2017-03-01 Rerun commentary: Also, how often did you see the Fellowship members loot the bodies of their fallen victims? None! That's how many.

And where were their ten-foot poles for probing dungeon ceilings to make sure there was no green slime about to fall on them? It's like they weren't even trying.
