And thus YOLO was invented
After failing two con saves after falling into artic temperature water our anthro squirrel bard (Wikket) contracted a mystery plague. It should be noted that he’s a satire bard and the campaign thus far has been filled with puns and sound gags. Here’s some excerpts from his coping…
NPC Witch: Well you can use the children’s room, but it might be a bit of squeeze.
The room has two dwarf sized twin beds and there’s five of us in the party. It should also be noted that our warlock would probably sooner skin the bard than willing come into contact with him, even before he contracted the plague. The bard knows this and likes teasing him anyways.
Artificer ooc: So who’s spooning whom?
Warlock: I’ll take one of the beds.
Bard: Great! We’ll can be bed buddies~!
Bard ooc: He can now scratch off sharing a bed with Thirith (warlock) off his list of Things to Annoy Thirith. He actually takes out a list that you guys can see and checks something off.
Artificer ooc: But wait, wouldn’t sharing the bed put Thirith at risk for contracting the plague?
Bard ooc: Well Wikket’s fine either way. Either Thirith has to share the bed with him which is a win, or he has to give up the bed which is also a win in Wikket’s book. He’s got the both on his list anyways.
Warlock ooc: ….
Warlock: I wrap him in the sheets, like a sack. So I don’t have to touch him.
Dm: It’s a ‘napsack’!
Warlock: …. I meant bindle.
Dm: Too late~ It’s a napsack now.
Bard: Wikket plays his flute inside his new napsack. I use minor illusion to turn the flute music to bagpipe music.
Dm: …. *actually pulls up bagpipe music*
Bard: Come morning you all awaken to see Wikket shaving his tail. He turns to you all and gleefully announces that he’s a plague rat now.
Artificer: Why would you do that? It’s freezing outside. You’ll catch your death of cold!
Bard, without missing a beat: F*ck me, no wait f*ck you I’m already dying! :3
Party ooc: *Dying with laughter* Holy shit that was actually an in character thing!
Dm: You get double inspiration for that. It’s not a thing but you get it.
Artificer:… But still, why are you shaving your tail?
Bard: Because YOLO, that’s why.
