    good one barmy, you beat me to it :D

    seriously though, I haven't got a clue :confused:

    I'm 20 right now so most of the things that would be on this list are probably things that are sexual in nature? ;) :/

    living in Europe is the only one that comes to mind right now though.

    In no particular order

    1 DM my own campaign.
    2 Write a book (would probably end up a trilogy) Lowmagic Fantasy, naturally.
    3 Owning my own horse. Preferably a brown one with a black mane.
    4 Learning how to ride said horse.
    5 Owning my own appartment. One livingroom, one bedroom, one weapon's/training room and a small office. (plus kitchen and all that ****)
    6 Finish reading the full "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. More to the point, I want G.R.R.Martin to finish the series before he dies. :D
    7 Find the woman of my dreams. Kind, smart, humorous and understanding. A good body wouldn't hurt either ;)
    8 Raise kids with said woman. I'd teach them martial arts and make sure they've got everything they need to make the world a better place for themselves and those they love.
    9 Sing in a band as frontman. I've got the voice, but not the time for practicing.
    10 Live a good life, during which I have had a positive influence upon others.

    1. Design my own 2e-based CRPG

    2. See Favre win the Superbowl again (there's not much time :mommy: )

    8. Re-establish dueling (with swords, not guns you pansies :p ) to help with population control of jerks and provide an alternative to war (Very few politicians would start a war when it's their life on the line.)
    Note: Duels must be agreed upon by both parties. If not, see #7.

    9. Give W a good smacking around (wouldn't kill him; let him live with the shame)

    10. Scour an area of its human infestation and settle down with my honey (I'd do the whole planet, but then who would entertain us?)
