a mongrel

The fairy of buttons

Our Rogue (who plays a small 16 year old human girl, and manipulative little mongrel) was in a small country inn and had sneaked up to try and pick pocket a drunk at one of the tables.

He proceeds to roll a nat 1 at slight of hand.

Me (the DM): You find a piece of moldy bread in his pocket and the man wakes up to stare blearily at you.

Rogue (IC) :Uhh….Hullo. I’m a fairy. 

(He rolls 18 on deception.)

Drunk (DM): Oh! Okay. I will keep your secret.

Rogue (OOC) :I push his head back onto the table, and tell him to go back to sleep.

DM: He’s now asleep.

Rogue (OOC): I try and pickpocket him again.

(Rolls a 14)

Dm: You find a few coppers and some buttons. The drunks shirt is a few buttons short and you assume they fell off. You done yet?

Rogue (OOC): ….Can i try and sew them back on his shirt?

(A few minutes while we discus this. The group decides he has to pass a slight of hand throw and a deception throw. The first to sew the buttons on and next not to get caught by anyone in the bar.)

He rolls a 17 on the deception, and then a nat 20 on the slight of hand.

After a few seconds of stunned silence I say,

Me (OOC): Congratulations. You have just successfully sewed the buttons you found in the drunk man’s pockets back on his shirt while he was asleep in the bar without anyone in the bar noticing.

Rogue (OOC): I wanted to make sure he believed I was a fairy when he woke up.


 So in the Palace District, the musicians for the Songs of Serkanos have two different songs that you can loot off them. And Born in the Month of Darkness is about the Outsider getting turned into the Outsider! It’s a really good piece of lore, even if you can’t hear it clearly in game yet.

Lyrics in text under the cut!

I love how the fandom thought that Reaper was the edgelord when in reality Gabriel Reyes was the kind of sunshine we all need in our lives?? He makes Halloween costumes. Reaper quotes shitty basketball sportscasters when he makes a basket. He basically adopted Street Mongrel Jesse McCree. That’s some next level “dad taming a wild child” shit. If you walk into my DMs telling me this man did not make dad jokes at every opportunity I will respect your opinion but internally think you are dead wrong. 

Meanwhile Jack walks around like a grandpa full of angst yelling at kids to get off his lawn while staring wistfully into the sunset. 

We had it wrong all along… Jack Morrison isn’t the #1 Dad, it’s Gabriel Reyes

For @mangy-mongrel and everyone else who was curious about Pilsbury dough cans and how they are opened. The “can” is cardboard with metal ends, and you peel the label off the can, anxiously waiting for the pop…


“I wonder what Garrick would be worth in the open market,” he said. “One overgrown mongrel. Carnivorous. Fights bulls and guards babies. Trained to sit on seedlings and scratch up flowers. Good crockery breaker. Suffers sometimes from bad breath. Results guaranteed.”

[Yang Xiao Long walks around her room ,gathering Zwei’s things as Weiss Schnee enters the room]

Weiss- What’s going on here ?
