So we are playing Curse of Strahd and at the start of everyday the entire party has to make a CON save or get a point of corruption, right? Now, my barbarian is the only character not to have any points thus far meanwhile the other folks are not doing so great….
DM: make your CON saves guys
Fighter (human): 2
Fighter (aasamir): 18
Barbarian (me): 26 and that’s a crit btw
Me: I wake up feeling great, I’m going to jog around the Inn.
DM: So (Warlock) you have 3 points now and you get a nasty cough. (Human fighter) you drank the blood wine last night so you are now throwing up blood. You are at 2 points.
Me: I run into (human fighter)’s room. “Hey friend, you wanna warm up with some sparring– holy shit are you ok?!”
Human Fighter: “I’m just a little hung over it’s fine.”
Me: “You sure cause you look like death froze over fifteen times then microwaved too long.”
Rouge: “Wait, what’s a microwave?”
Me: “It’s a regional thing, don’t worry about it.”
The entire party busted up laughing. That isn’t the first or last time I’ve used the “it’s a regional thing” excuse when I forget I’m supposed to be in character. Oops.
Hey Pilot, how was Hamilton?
