and Hannibal having taken the leap, there are people left behind who now have to
deal with their fear of an unleashed Hannibal but also with the fallout and the
implications of Will’s becoming… Show us their perspective!
The lighting had been extremely bad lately, I haven’t made any nice new notes, and in general there’s not much to say about my productivity (because where is it??). I feel rubbish.
But today I got my textbook out and taught myself some stuff I missed, and did quite a lot of maths questions. So all’s not lost!
How are your studies going? I know not everyone has exams now but good luck to you anyway! ✨
So this past Saturday I was playing a Pathfinder pseudo murder mystery. My friend ran it, with my father playing an Elvish Fighter, a friend playing a merfolk druid, and I playing a Half-Elf Investigator. The whole joke was when I rolled with inspiration (basically a pool of d6’s to add to any d20 roll) I said, in character, “I know that!” By using this, I never failed a single skill check that game.
The highlight of this was when I was taken to the court Wizard by the level 20 Cleric. The Wizard had been dying from poisoning for about 3 days, and had left the cleric confused on how to cure him. This is how the exchange went:
DM: “So the Wizard is lying in bed with a milky white film over his eyes, he seems to be muttering to himself in delirium”
Me: “Alright, so I’m gonna use poison lore to try and see what is killing him.”
DM: “…are you sure? This level 20 CLERIC has been unable to cure the wizard.”
Me, looking at my friend with a neutral expression: “I know that.”
I had absolutely no ranks in Nature knowledge, but thanks to my high intelligence and inspiration, I hit the poisons DC of 26 to identify it. Then, using my insanely high Craft(Alchemy) skill to cure the wizard in about an hour. Then the DM says this:
“As the wizard recovers, the cleric stares into the distance, rethinking his entire life.”
Being shown up by a level 3 character does thing to a man I suppose.
