Megan and Becky are looking at wolves on tumblr and losing their shit. I’m amused.

Someshing you may not know about me… My bad self DMs for an almost weekly Dungeons & Dragons group (because dork awesome). If you have never played, I highly recommend finding someone who can guide you through the learning curve and giving it the old college try.A few weeks ago, one of my players found their character (a level 8 wizard named Abadon) in a really bad spot— separated from the rest of the group and just a turn away from irreversible death at the hands of a very powerful wizard. Having already exhausted every obvious possibility for survival, he began scrambling through the notes and spells and items scrawled in every margin of his character sheets, looking for some means of saving himself. He tells me Abadon pulls out the Charming Dreamcatcher, an item that allows the user to control the actions of an opponent to a point (don’t worry, I am careful with item creation), provided that the user can keep sight of his target through the center of the dreamcatcher. He tells me that he uses it to force the enemy wizard to “Uhhm… Teleport to his mother’s house!”I’m like, “But then you won’t be able to see him anymore, and he’ll just teleport right back!”Eager to defend Abadon’s rationale, another player chimes in with, “No way, he’s a member of the prestigious Red Guard, so he probably NEVER visits home! He just appears at home and mom’s just gonna let him leave? UNLIKELY.”So I grab my dice and do a bunch of rolls to determine if mom’s even home, and of course she is, and the players are going crazy trying to convince me of how overbearing and controlling this particular guard’s mom is.They are just tickling me with all of this, so I say, “Okay okay, we’ll do opposing Diplomacy checks. I’ll roll for the Red Guard wizard, and one of you rolls for mom.” As they roll for mom, one of them says (in their best Mrs. Costanza voice), “I haven’t even met your girlfriend, for cryin’ out loud!”The above picture was the result. I rolled a paltry seven, and they totally dominated me with a 20. Abadon was able to escape death because he sent an enemy home to his mother, who then guilted him into sitting down to a home-cooked meal. “You’re always out guarding this, or killing that— never any time to visit your poor mother!”Best encounter ever.

 

This is kind of shit we’d get into during my D&D games.  I miss playing!

this is why D&D is better than [most] video games. This shit right here. Tell me you’ve ever played a video game where you defeated an enemy by sending him to his mom’s house.

Ways I (or my party) have defeated an enemy in D&D:
By bluffing in a language I did not speak
By handing him a stick of dynamite and running away
By dressing up like the pirate captain and waltzing through camp while my party members blew up the rum stash
By beating him up-side the head with a bag of rice
By getting blackout drunk and losing the magical item so that no one would ever know where it ended up
By being flung into battle (I was a gnome) by my half-orc bar wench party member
By knocking out one of our own party members before even going into battle so he wouldn’t get mind controlled and kill us all
By tricking him into thinking my notebook was completely harmless because it was written in a language he did not read

Eeeeeheeeheehee

I wanna be in that relationship were I can just do the stupidest shit. Like legit, dance in public with me, make faces at me, do accents with me, hell, make fun of my bad habits in a funny way. I don’t care, just have fun with me.

katnissofdauntless:

Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.
