… you know why you have to go to the liquor store when your dice container is full.

I guess as a poll, this would be the "Top 5" from all the witty things people come up with.

LOL! Oh noes, my Crown Royal bag is worn through, better go to BevMo asap!

If you own more D20s than D6s.

If you own a D12 or a D4.

If you refer to dice as a D6 or D20 instead of a six-sided die or twenty-sided die unless telling a newbie what dice to use.

If your dice are made of metal or stone, sparkle, light-up or have funny shapes.

If you know Wizards of the Coast is not a reference to Apple, Microsoft or Tesla.

If you put on a wizard's hat or apply zombie make-up more frequently than Halloween.

If you can debate for hours why 4.0 sucked and whether THACO or AAC is the better rules mechanism.

If your freezer is full of frozen pizzas and Geno's pizza rolls. (which also confirms that you are into OSR).

If you know that OSR is not a programming language or something you plug in.

And yes, I keep my RPG dice in a Crown Royal sack. ;-)

If you know the difference between a Monk, Cleric and Druid and are happy to share this with any random stranger you meet

If you view being a half Orc as a compliment

If you have a ball cap reading "Dwarf" or "Dungeon Master."

If hiking in caves sounds like a great weekend.

If you attribute life's failures to your low Charisma score.

If you know the difference between a troglophile and a troglodite.

If you know which races speak burrowing animal.

If you know who Tramp was.

If you've ever had a character die during character generation, and thought it was cool.

FASERIP isn't a horror movie.

You can convert descending armor class into ascending armor class and vice versa.

You know you're in trouble when the DM is smiling.

You know charisma has nothing to do with looks.

You think more things in life should come with Saving Throws.

You've ever made enemies in an alignment discussion.

You know that 5th actually is 12th. Or possibly 14th.

You know that "race as class" has nothing to do with ethnic prejudice.

You know what RF;ED means. And that it's related to TPK.

Your sword is vorpal.

You know who Phil and Dixie are.

Every time you enter a room, you poke the ceiling and the floor with a ten-foot pole.

You let somebody else open the conveniently unlocked chest.

…you call Cheeseburgers "Cure Light Wounds".

If you tell them on the first date you're a role player…

. . . You rarely shop without the family together, as you *NEVER* split up the party.

"I am Spartacus!" and "This is Sparta!"

Rookies use crown Royal bags. Vets Know that Cpt Morgan Private Reserve are better bags.

…if, when buying a new motor vehicle and the salesperson mentions the vehicle's FMVSS rating, you ask: "Is that the car's THAC0?"

During confrontational or unusual situations, you say: "Roll for initiative."

I remember when ecdysiasts used Crown Royal bags as purses.

* You know what n x 3.5 is.

* You've ever taken a lunch break at 3am.

* You don't understand why school doesn't let you take a couple extra exams and throw out the two low scores.

* You've ever had a really funny idea for a list on "You Might Be A Roleplayer If …".

QUATERMASS02 Sep 2022 3:33 p.m. PST

You've had an hour long debate as to turn left or right.

You think its original to play a hot elf chick and your a fat bloke.

You don't get furry handcuffs out.

You think a dungeon is more than one room.

When you can have a party with three other people.

When you know a Dungeon Master isn't a sex thing.

You paid attention in Algebra I specifically so you could learn to work the complex equations in Traveller Book 2.

"You don't understand why school doesn't let you take a couple extra exams and throw out the two low scores."

I do this for my classes, unless we are using a portfolio based grading system – in which case, they pick their best work to be included in the portfolio that earns them the bulk of their grade/mark, or a "progress towards mastery" grading system where their last (should be best) work in any standard is what is officially graded.
