D&D History

...Dungeons & Dragons (abbreviated as D&D[2] or DnD) is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game (RPG) originally designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, and first published in 1974 by Tactical Studies Rules, Inc. (TSR). The game has been published by Wizards of the Coast since 1997. It was derived from miniature wargames with a variation of the Chainmail game serving as the initial rule system.[3] D&D's publication is widely regarded as the beginning of modern role-playing games and the role-playing game industry.[4] D&D departs from traditional wargaming and assigns each player a specific character to play instead of a military formation. These characters embark upon imaginary adventures within a fantasy setting. A Dungeon Master serves as the game's referee and storyteller, while also maintaining the setting in which the adventures occur and playing the role of the inhabitants. The characters form a party that interacts with the setting's inhabitants (and each other). Together they solve dilemmas, engage in battles and gather treasure and knowledge.[4] In the process the characters earn experience points to become increasingly powerful over a series of sessions. The early success of Dungeons & Dragons led to a proliferation of similar game systems. Despite this competition, D&D remains the market leader in the role-playing game industry.[5] In 1977, the game was split into two branches: the relatively rules-light game system of Dungeons &......

One of whom God has appointed. he must not acquire many horses as they will be a distraction to him, he must also not instruct anyone to get them for him, God has commanded that way to be in the past. the king must not take many wives or accumulate large quantities of gold and silver as these things will become your God, you will worship them and turn from worshipping God, they will be your idols of which God forbids. God is showing you what your king should be like, and what he shouldn't do in order to remain a God fearing, pious king who will not be tempted by worldly temporal riches, but rather will live according to God's will, and will remain without arrogance. He is to write a copy of the law taken for the Levite priests and he is to keep it on his person at all times, continually reading it so as to remain in accordance to the law of God. this will be good for his soul as he will keep in close fellowship with God by doing so, this will also keep him close to his brothers and remind him that he is the same as them and this process and adherence will allow him and his descendants to reign along time in the kingdom in Israel....

...Humanist Christian Louis Markos in his article “Homer’s Illiad: Civilization versus Barbarism” explores how faith of Christians can be strengthened by reading the Pagan classics like Homer’s Illiad. Markos starts by comparing Homer’s world to a pre-Mosaic world of Genesis. He states that they live in a world that is pre-moral and pre-legal, but are still without a sense of what is moral and lawful. Markos then begins to explain what happens in the first five books in The Illiad. He discusses that every single one of Homer’s warriors get to display their arete, which means excellence. They all strive to achieve arete, but every time they get their moment to shine, Achilles comes in and puts them to shame. Markos says, “The godlike Achilles will achieve that which the rest of us lesser morals merely strive for.” This clarifies that all of the soldiers look up to Achilles and strive to be like him. Markos then focuses on book six where Homer carries the reader from war to peace and barbarism to civilization. He talks about Homer’s moral compass throughout The Illiad and states the laws of xenia, known as the guest-host relationship. This means that both guests and the host have to treat each other the same. The host must provide hospitality and the guest is not suppose to take advantage of the host. He relates this concept to the Old and New Testament. One example is in Genesis 18 where Abraham is rewarded for the hospitality he shows the three angels. In The Illiad, the......

The Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet

...The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet The definition of a good marriage is the perception of the judge. When considering who is to blame for the Bennet's marriage, it must be said that it depends on which perspective is being considered. Jane Austen's portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's union leads us to believe this was not a match made in Heaven. However, if the marriage is looked at from different perspectives such as; Mr. Bennet’s, Mrs. Bennet’s, circumstance, or society’s, they provide opposing views of happiness and who is to blame in the absence of joy. After all are considered, is the marriage that bad? A person’s reasons to get married are essential in determining whether or not they can be happy. Society dictated that the Bennet's marriage was contractually imperative for both of them. Mrs. Bennet wanted to be secure and accepted a proposal that she thought would be acceptable. Mr. Bennet wanted a wife to take care of his needs and give him children, preferably a son. Both were tolerable to the other in the beginning and entered into the marriage with freewill. Early in the novel we learn the Bennet's marriage is portrayed as ill-fitted. They appear to be two opposites in humor, character, tact and priorities. In Chapter 1 we read: Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her......

Prioritizing Projects at D. D. Williamson

...Prioritizing Projects at D. D. Williamson Critique the prioritizing process D. D. Williamson. D. D. Williamson is a small privately held company. Founded in 1865 in Louisville, Kentucky, D. D. Williamson has become a global leader in non-artificial colors (Kloppenberg & Nkomo, 2012). The company has grown to nine operating facilities in six countries and supplying many food and beverage companies around the world. D. D. Williamson had too many projects that were all deemed important. Even though the project was ongoing, some projects were late, over budget, and not achieving the predicted results (Kloppenberg & Nkomo, 2012). With so many active and important projects, the company decided to implement a prioritization matrix. The prioritization matrix was an excellent way to prioritize the company’s projects and improve the budget and on-time rates. As of 2009, the company made more changes to their prioritization process. They decided to choose no more than five “Vision Impact Projects” that would get high-level focus and attention (Kloppenberg & Nkomo, 2012). Projects are now receiving more in depth attention. Suggest at least one recommendation to improve the prioritizing process. Although D. D. Williamson has an effective prioritizing process, any method can be improved. The first thing D. D. Williams can do to improve the prioritizing process. Knowing that whatever process that is done the greatest impact will be on the stakeholder......

...Dear Mr. and Mrs. ????? Bryan Kelly COM200: Interpersonal Communication Instructor Angela Gillette 8/15/2011 Dear Mr. and Mrs. ?????, First off, let me welcome you to a brand new world of love, care, family bonds and holy matrimony. My name is Bryan Kelly, and I am going to give you an idea of how interpersonal communication is going to affect your lives, and the skills/knowledge you will need in order to find yourselves together and still happy 50 years down the road. Marriage today seems, to some, to be a fly-by-night operation. I stand here today writing you to let you know that this does not have to be the case. If you two are willing to take suggestions and follow a simple set of rules based on a health relationship built on proper interpersonal communication, then you have a chance to find yourself happy and in love for some time to come. Communication is the keystone to any strong relationship. In order to truly understand ourselves and our loved ones, we must first understand the way that we interact in our day to day intermingling. Explain the principles and misconceptions in effective interpersonal communications. In the textbook Making Connections: Understanding Interpersonal Communication(Sole, 2011), we are shown that there are six basic principles at play regarding Human communications. First, we are told that communication is symbolic. Second, we are shown that communication is shared meaning. Third,......
