I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

@DancingKobold IIRC I took it as my animal companion and promised to drop Leadership on it once I got to level 6. That group considered RAW for "the dirty people" so wheeling and dealing like that was common. Mainly I roleplayed feeding it and caring for it. It was a little rowdy being evil but it was small enough it couldn't really hurt much, it was what 3 HD? Later the GM let it advance to Very Young after the Leadership was taken.

Just don't ask for the RAW on how to go to the bathroom. There's a lot of CMB checks involved.

Yes, I'm sure he can read rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1133/… to find out about running 3.0 in 3.5 in general.

comment 1 GM and 1 Player games and game systems?
As this question has been bumped it's worth noting it's an early game-rec question and most of the answers are terrible given our current guidance on those kinds of questions.

Well steak, that comes from cows which have more Hit Dice than fish, so clearly level 5! But since that's the level you can cast fireball, eating them raw might not come up.
