I remember - this must have been in the early '80s - planning a Dungeons 
& Dragons campaign featuring a race of unattractive dwarves whose 
preferred weapon was the "ugly stick", which did physical damage and 
also decreased the Charisma of the victim. All of the players involved 
were white, as I recall.
