Ah, the benefits of an RPG education

I'm playing a game of Scrabble online with a friend via Facebook. It was my turn to go, so I logged on, looked at the board, looked at my pieces, then spelled out D-O-X-Y. My girlfriend, who was watching me do my thing, was surprised that that was a real word. I knew that I knew it from somewhere, but I couldn't quite place it...

I looked up the word: "prostitute" was given as the meaning. And then it clicked. The random Harlot Table from the 1e DMG! I grabbed the tome off the shelf, and sure enough there it was: "expensive doxy." So, thanks to Gary and his voluminous vocabulary, I just scored 30 points on a double word score. Boo-yah!
