Context: We were running the Lost Mines of Phandelver map (with 5e Homebrew characters), and have encountered the Cult of the Dragon’s hideout. This was also my first time DMing.
DM(me): You enter, and it becomes clear that these hooded men are definitely up to no good. They wear horned dragon masks, black robes and- oh god.
Storyteller(ooc): I can see where this is going.
Me: They’re also wearing leather-made dragon wings…?
Storyteller(ooc): Called it!
Dragon Knight: OH GOD, THEY’RE WEEBS!
Me: *buries face in hands* I wish I was joking but that’s what it says here…
Druid (ooc): It’s like the design people thought up some really cool designs but all I can imagine now are people in crappy dragon mascot costumes.
Dragon Knight: Can I join the cult? I have a mini dragon!
One Campaign later, we decided to run Rise of Tiamet. This was how I decided to propose the module:
Me: Guys do you remember the weeb cult from our first game?
Me: (Storyteller) and I found this: (Insert picture of Rise of Tiamet book cover)
Knight: Oh my god. OH MY GOD
Storyteller: The weeb cult is stepping up their game.
Knight: I’M IN!
Druid: This is absolutely not going to be a serious game, is it.
Me & Storyteller: We’ve literally never had a serious game, (Knight) spent the next week after we encountered the dragon cult giggling every time we referenced them.
