Where do Mimic's come from?
We had just managed to defeat a Mimic when my good friend and i got into this conversation with a new member to our party. A very 'innocent’ person really, and a very annoyed DM in the end.
Damien (innocent person (bard) “You know, i was always thinking. Where do Mimics come from?”
Rogue (me) Well, when a mommy mimic wants a baby, she starts eating all of the treasure she can.
Warlock (David) and then she settles in a cave to let the gems form a baby inside of her.
Me: like a clam with a pearl.
David: and when the pearl is formed, ‘mommy’ mimic births the baby mimic.
me: and when the baby mimic sees the world for the first time, it looks up to it’s mommy and the world around itself in awe.
David: Seeing her baby hungry, ‘mommy mimic’ then feeds her baby to give it strength to survive.
me: Having eaten more gold and gems than she needs, she throws up a bunch of it into the baby mimic’s mouth, giving it the needed substance to survive without her.
David: Like with birds.
DM: SHUT UP ALREADY! WE ARE IN A CAMPAIGN!
me: We are answering a question asked from one member to another in character.
me: you know my character can’t pass up a moment like this to go off like that.
Dave: and i don’t know either so i just went along with it.
DM:…alright, no more mimics…so no more 'epic’ items.
me and David: AWWW!!!! Common! That is just mean!
note she either forgot the next day we played, or just did not care.
