D&D sadistic DMing

Well, actually, not exactly sadistic, but definitely not player friendly or particularly creative, as this smart little Dungeons & Dragons centric web-article is all about them 18 ways to increase combat duration, thus only mildly irritating players (and filling up those crucial few hours every GM once in a while needs). If you want true bastardic system-irrelevant sadism better try the utterly hilarious and very very brilliant Bastard's GM Handbook.
