DEAR A NEWBIE LICH,

TRADITIONAL IS BEST WITH PHYLACTERIES. CURRENT TRENDS ARE TIRESOME, FLEETING THINGS LIMITED TO THE WEAK OF MIND, NOT A PROPER MASTER OF DEATH. LICHES THESE DAYS HAVE NO SENSE OF TRADITION, ALWAYS MAKING THEIR PHYLACTERIES THINGS LIKE GRAINS OF SAND OR COINS OR AMULETS. NO, I RECOMMEND THAT YOU WRITE DARK PAEANS TO WHATEVER INFERIOR GOD YOU SERVE AND IMPRISON THEM WITHIN A WOODEN BOX.

Personally I'd just say a ring or small box or something and just hide it somewhere that normal people can't freely go. Just make sure that you yourself can confirm its location without causing too many problems

DEAR FIRST TIME WRITER, LONG TIME FIGHTER,

THE UNDERDARK IS INDEED A PERILOUS PLACE TO THOSE UNPREPARED. IF INSUFFICIENTLY PACKED, YOU WILL LIKELY DIE OF THIRST, STARVATION, OR MAGICAL RADIATION LONG BEFORE ENCOUNTERING ONE OF THE MANY CREATURES KEEN TO FEAST UPON YOUR INNARDS. I SUGGEST TAKING ALONG ONE OF ANY NUMBER OF MAGICAL ITEMS THAT CAN CREATE FOOD OR WATER ON THE GO. I FURTHERMORE SUGGEST THAT YOU HIRE SOME GITHYANKI OR GITHZERAI MERCENARIES TO AID YOU. SHOULD YOU ENCOUNTER THE STAR-SPAWN, THESE MERCENARIES WILL LIKELY CHARGE THEM IN A SUICIDAL FERVOR, RIDDING THE WORLD OF A FEW MORE ILLITHIDS AND ALSO MAKING YOUR MERCENARY-PAYMENT A LOT CHEAPER.

I have something of a problem. I, as a dragon- even if a White Dragon- am FAR superior to the meatlings that now dominate the world. But... Well, through a combination of threats, shrewd dealings, uncanny speechcraft and a few shady services against my nemesis, I am now honorbound to protect a small meatling town. I am a draconic entity of my word, but they're utterly INSUFFERABLE. Just watching them, milling about, sickens me. How should I proceed?

I'm a human Ranger in an adventuring troupe whose number also includes a Halfling Rogue. Now, we have been adventuring together for some time, and a couple of months ago we started to become involved, romantically. She (My Halfling love interest) and I have been taking it slow, after having realized we had feelings for each other for a long time. The other night after we had defeated a particularly powerful Beholder and its minions (who were about to wipe out a small village), we celebrated by getting drunk in the local pub. Well, soon we were getting physical, and one thing led to another and we found ourselves in the buff in our private room above the pub. Now, immediately, even in my drunken state, I could see there might be a problem with our size difference. She was also trepidatious. So despite our inebriation we decided to hold off on "going all the way", and found...other ways to celebrate our victory.

My concern is that I'll hurt her; this will be bad not just for her and myself, but for the whole party. As she pointed out, what kind of Rogue can move stealthily when she feels like she's been bifurcated? How should we proceed, Abby?

Dear Abby,

I've recently come into the possession of a halfling farm. Foolish things aren't yet aware it's not just plants were growing, any way I digress. I was thinking of getting my fellow feinds together but I think a simple halfling roast, while a staple of fiendish cuisine, just won't make the impression I need on my superiors. I need something with a certain flair to it, something beyond the ordinary rape and torture that would be sure to impress even my most jaded guests. Any advice?

Sincerely yours,
A Fiendish Farmer

Dear Abby,

I've recently signed a work contract and it just seems too good to be true. I get a sinister feeling from my employer. How can I confirm or rebuke my suspicions?

Your Sincerely,
A Hesitant Halfing.

Dear Abby,

I've been on-and-off sleeping with this cute transmutationist who works in the R&D lab. I'm a field operations mage, by the way. The mercenary work has allowed me to mass an empire in liquid assets, but I digress. I recently found out she's an illithid. I'm abjured to the nines, which is why I suspect she hasn't tried to invade my skull one way or another, but there remains the possibility that she isn't after my mind.

Do you have any advice?

Best Regards,
Evoker And Loving It
