Context : I recently joined in on a new D&D 5e game run by a friend. My character starts out in a cell with another character, who happens to be a cleric. We’ve been drafted into a tournament to honor Kord, but we’re also tasked to investigate a disturbance below the arena. Naturally, we investigate and find the rest of our adventuring party.
DM : You hear muffled conversation ahead. It sounds like 3 or 4 people are plotting their next move.
Cleric : I’d like to try and sneak closer to them.
DM : Give me a stealth check at disadvantage due to your armor.
Cleric : Rolls a natural 1.
DM : A loud clatter emits from the stairwell as an Asimar cleric loses her footing and descends the stairs in a violent fashion. *indicates the rest of the party* You all see this woman come to a skidding halt in front of you. She looks up and kinda smiles sheepishly.
Me : (playing a Triton Bladelock) Don’t mind her. She’s Um…. Dextrously challenged. I certainly hope you lot are investigating the disturbances down here as well?
Hamilton college AU part two (part one), now with more Schuyler sisters
Angelica and Peggy run a community outreach group that meets at the same time and across the hall from the social justice group Laurens and Hamilton run. After a semester of passive aggressive subtweeting about the “loud, unorganized group across the hall,” they end up joining as one group. They’re practically unstoppable.
Alex and Eliza meeting while doing laundry at 3am. For an entire semester, they both do their laundry at 3am every other Wednesday just to talk before someone suggests they just go on a date like normal people do.
All dorms have a strict “no pets” rule. Burr is their RA who conducts surprise searches for “contraband” and Laurens has a turtle he keeps in a huge tank on his desk so he and Lafayette are forced to sneak the entire tank across campus to Eliza and Angelica’s room in the middle of the night while Hamilton distracts Burr. This happens at least five times a semester.
After noticing that the Gay Trio always stays on campus during breaks, Mulligan and the Schuyler sisters take turns inviting them (& Burr sometimes) over to spend holidays with their families in New York.
Ever wonder what an uncut sheet of Magic cards looks like?
A buddy of mine works at Wizards of the Coast and he recently played in an internal drafting tournament. His prize for winning first place was this beautiful sheet of uncut foil cards from Battle for Zendikar.
I thought some of you might find this as interesting as I did, so I asked him if I could share the photo.
