I love how Niall’s gotten so much more confident. Going solo kinda changed him (in a GOOD way). Over the years he’s progressively earned his place in the music industry. He’s worked so hard to finally be respected as an artist (when u think of how he barely had any solos in 2012 and he was always taken for granted). And even if today hes still not the most talked about person and he still doesn’t get enough recognition, the general public love his music so much. He’s only released 2 singles and he’s received awards and was #1 in so many countries. Im so proud of him and i LOVE how he knows he’s doing great stuff. I love the fact that he dances to his own song. He’s so confident and he’s so happy and excited to share his music with us. It doesn’t matter to him if he’s #1 as long as he’s happy with the music he’s doing. He’s so passionate and he’s not here just for the glory. He just wants to do HIS best as a solo artist.
So our group was playing for the first time today, and the party (I’m the GM) consists primarily of americans (a tiefling rogue and a half-orc fighter), except for one person, our Wood Elf Cleric who constantly wears a blindfold.
Our Cleric is Australian.
Right as the Cleric is about to knock on the door to get let into the room to meet one of the other players and an NPC, this conversation is had.
Fighter (ooc): wait does [Cleric] have an australian accent?
Cleric (ooc): absolutely, in fact they have a thicker accent than I do.
Rogue (ooc): oh my god
Fighter (ooc): [says something about wood elves and australians]
GM (me): i’m sorry are you implying that all wood elves have an australian accent?
It has since become canon that all of the wood elves speak with Australian accents. (Our cleric, who spoke with the thickest australian accent she could muster, has since been awarded a -1 on all rolls when carrying out conversation.)
