Thanks for those. nice mix of thought provoking and funny as usual. Love the A-list to Z-list.

I can't help thinking that the Houri should be on the list of most embarassing D&D character classes. Just what the game needed - some prostitutes in scanty clothing. Was that one ever official?

While the CV article was really interesting, people who use words like "fittingness" make me want to hit them around the head with a dictionary and thesaurus. :-)

I think that article restricted itself (believe it or not) to canon character classes - i.e. those published by TSR / WotC. The Houri was from White Dwarf. If we're going to include White Dwarf character classes, then I feel the Houri is easily beaten by the Pervert from White Dwarf's first issue:

"The prime requisite for the Pervert is Charisma, which must be _below_ 9. However, both Strength and Constitution must exceed 12. Alignment can be heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual. Perverts are armour class 7 when wearing black leather armour and using an unsheathed weapon, but suffer a 50% chance of loss of sight per melee turn if weapon is hand held. Suggested artifact: Elven dirty mac.
Level 1: Peeping Tom
2: Voyeur
3: Graffiti Artist
4: Obscene Caller
5: Flasher
6: Streaker
7: Groper
8: Pornographer
9: Rapist
10: Pervert"

Not making that up!

Wow! I mean WTF? Was it the April issue?

Meanwhile, meant to say I was taken with the typo in the D&D article: they're Druids whose elands have been completely destroyed

"Just nipping out to admire our large antelopes, dear... Noooo!"
