While preparing for yesterday's TME game, I created a whole bunch of characters, put them into the form fill character sheet that I updated, and discovered too late that the area meant for the characters background was set to use a font size that was ridiculously small.

Have you ever had anyone tell you that you aren't playing your character “right”? There's a great moment in the wonderful movie, “The Gamers: Dorkness Rising” where a new player gets berated by all the others because she put Charisma as her highest score for her new Fighter character.
