  1. Not to be confused, of course, with Adam Ant. Please don’t try to make armor out of him.

  2. Angry GM – I am a huge fan of both your website and your podcast – I’ve worked my way through the entire back catalog over the last few months.
    One note on this podcast with regards to “adamant” and or it’s derivatives not being specifically mentioned in the
    AD&D DMG.
    It was actually – AD&D DMG revised edition 1979.
    Page 164, Armor and Shield (III.F):
    “Armor of +3 bonus is of special meteorite iron steel, +4 is mithral alloyed steel, +5 is adamantite alloyed steel.”

    Ok – now that I’ve been pedantic I’ll go finish listening to the podcast.
