am i a prince yet

“I was the oldest” the prince said “and yet I am the last. After Mors and Olyvar died in their cradles, I gave up hope of brothers. I was nine when Elia came, a squire in service at Salt Shore. When the raven arrived with word that my mother had been brought to bed a month too soon, I was old enough to understand that meant the child would not live. Even when Lord Gargalen told me that I had a sister, I assured him that she must shortly die. Yet she lived, by the Mother’s mercy. And a year later Oberyn arrived, squalling and kicking. I was a man grown when they were playing in these pools. Yet here I sit, and they are gone.”

A Feast for Crows

So I played D&D for the first time

And in the course of the single session I somehow managed to sneak a highly dangerous vampire into a town by convincing the guards the box was full of chicken shit, got free gear from a Tiefling Innkeep that was hitting on my character until my party’s tank got greedy and crit 1’d and sharted at the dinner table and got us kicked out, and finally got traded off by my asshole party to be betrothed to a drunken elf prince that I am yet to weasel my way out of. 

10/10 will play again

Whilst I (im)patiently wait for the subs for Prince of Stride I’ve just been sitting here watching the OP over and over again because 1) I am falling in love with the song 2) the art and animation is really really great and 3) two of the characters do their little relay high five thing, but then just intertwine their figers and end up holding hands…

Guys we’re definitely in for a gay one here
