Behold! A guest table from the illustrious R. M. Walker.
People (and Monsters) are in a hurry all the time. Occasionally they have to climb over the hedge, and occasionally they snag or drop things on or about the bushes. Go ahead and root around under there. It’s not like anyone will notice THAT.
So, what was discarded in that shrubbery? Roll a d20!

Despite occasional forays into the bizarre, Randall has always come back to Dungeons & Dragons. A struggling writer, Randall has exactly one paid publishing credit, a DDI piece for Wizards of the Coast, but enjoys writing for blogs & RPG related wikis.
Despite evidence to the contrary, he is also working on a novel.
Currently enjoying the 4th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons, Randall is the author of “Initiative or What?”, a blog that focuses on his current gaming interests.
Randall runs a monthly game out of his home with a group of friends collectively known as the Dead Orcs Society; a moderately humorous take on the Dead Poets Society. He has never been able to make “Oh Gruumsh My Gruumsh” sound as good as “Oh Captain My Captain”.[/author_info] [/author]
