book kick

I like beginnings because they’re so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there’s always more to come.
You’re like one of those dogs, the unwanted ones that have been mistreated all their lives. You can kick them and kick them, but they’ll still come back to you, cringing and wagging their tails. Begging. Hoping that this time it’ll be different, that this time they’ll do something right and you’ll love them.
—  The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Winwin: *places a book called ‘Dead End’ in the middle of the walk way*

Taeyong: *kicks the book by accident*

Winwin: looks like you’ve hit a dead end ( ͒꒪̛ཅ꒪̛ ͒)

Haunted Shenanigans

Context: I created a campaign about a haunted library. In the next-to-last room, there is a narrow hallway. Once side of it is a literal wall of books (not a bookcase- just stacks of books). Players can hear a voice crying for help, but it’s really a green hag. If the players get the books out of their way to investigate, they find a hidden room and fight the hag.

DM (me): You hear a voice crying out for help.

Cleric and Sorcerer: *both make a Perception check* *both get a bad feeling about the voice*

Cleric: I feel something odd about that voice. It seems inhuman. We should leave it alone.

Fighter (OOC): I kick the books down.

Cleric: I wouldn’t do that.

Fighter: *kicks right through the books anyway*

Wild Green Hag: *appears*

After somehow defeating the hag (and she turns to dust when defeated), this conversation happens.

Fighter: What kind of loot did she drop?

DM: A potato sack and a pile of dust.

Fighter and Cleric: *moment of silence*

Cleric: I need the hag dust to make a potion.

Fighter: I want to wear the potato sack as a backpack.

Long story short the cleric now has hag dust in his inventory and the fighter is wearing a backpack made of a potato sack.

The fighter also activated a snake enemy in the previous room and was pushed out a first-story window.

reasons to read the Jedi Apprentice series

*O-baby-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn’S amazing jedi space adventures?? Is that not enough reason OK

*Obi-Wan is young and reckless and going way too far and has a passionate sense of justice only equaled by his desire for people to just have better manners darn it 

*Qui-Gon is literally the most stubborn human in the galaxy and he gets called out on it ALL THE TIME

*Ladies?? An awesome new female character around every corner. Miners, healers, politicians, mad scientists, serene jedi masters, caustic jedi padawans, gentle jedi initiates, cooks, revolutionaries, mechanics, bounty hunters. 

*Obi-Wan has a new little friend on every planet. “I don’t know how to people,” he grumbles as he makes a new friend for life. “Why can’t I be at ease in every situation like Qui-Gon is?” He bemoans, trailing disreputable new bosom bros behind him like a train.

*“The Council likes to be presented with freshly overturned governments more than revolutions in progress,” Qui-Gon blithely assures his dubious apprentice.

*no but really tho they never met an oppressive government they didn’t try to topple

*all the Jedi world building? If you gave ever wondered a thing about old Republic jedi, Jude Watson probably wondered too and wrote an answer

*They are basically printed novel size gen fanfics, so many tropes, so much peril and angst and teamwork and partners being concerned for each other

*made for kids, so the writing is not bad but it’s quite simple you can tear through one of these babies in like an hour or less

*“Not so! I lie!”

*Qui-Gon Jinn holding babies and making faces at small children

*Obi-Wan Kenobi the industrial-sized salt dispenser 

*Seriously just read them if you love Obi-Wan you should have read them already if you love Qui-Gon then these books and Liam Neeson are probably why

“He’s slamming the game again…”

“I hear him. You don’t like baseball? What planet are you from?”

“I know, I know, I’m a communist, a book burner, and I kick dogs. I just can’t sit through baseball. It moves so slow…!

“Oooh baby, whine for me. It’s so sexy…”

“Everything moves slowly for you, Wally. Have pity on us mortal snails.”

These three need to meet because they were the original Team Flash.
