Ask Dr. Gamer!

Hi Dr. Gamer, I’m a huge fan, first time poster, long time reader – and I was just wondering: what does THAC0 mean?? signed, n000bers in Saskatchewan

Well n000bers, it’s an acronym from the early editions of “Dungeons & Dragons” which TSR apparently published long before you came into your nerditude. I hate you for making me feel old. THAC0 stands for “To Ham Armor Class 0” and represents the amount of ham you have to throw at a naked Dwarf before he’ll stop hurting you. (and you better hope it’s a he, it’s hard to tell sometimes)
