So I had mentioned to a friend of mine that I was reopening a Pathfinder campaign and he showed interest in joining, so I gave him a trial run. If he liked it then he could stay. He made a Rogue Elf and wanted to be a generic thief. Since all the other players are level 5 already I gave all the new characters a good bit of downtime to catch up, so that means mostly 1 on 1 sessions of 90% improv with maybe some other players watching. A little note about this kid is he is a bit unpredictable when he is upset, and one of our other PCs just messed with him and threw him in a garbage can.
Me(DM): So you are in a Garbage can, what do you do?
Rogue: I sleep here for 12 hours…
Me: Ok… 12 hours pass, what do you do next..?
Rogue: I get up and look for some food.
Me: You smell freshly baked bread and follow the smell to a bakery.
Rogue: I sit down and smell for a half hour.
Me: Right… people look at you weirdly as you sniff the air for 30 minutes.
Rogue: I ask the lady behind the counter for a cake.
Me: She offers you one fresh cake for 10 gold.
Rogue: I buy it to go and take the cake.
Rogue: I roll acrobatics to do a backflip out of the store…*fails*
Me: … you try to backflip with a cake in your hands, but you instead land face first into the cake, hurting yourself.
Rogue: I sit there and shovel cake into my mouth in self pity.
Me: … everyone who sees you wonders if you are alright.
Rogue: I get up and smash my face through the display case…*fails strength check*
Me: You bounce your head off the glass.
Rogue: I do it again…*fails*
Me: Everyone is wondering if you are mentally insane.
Rogue: One more time…*succeeds*
Me: Everyone looks in shock as you smash your face through solid glass, taking 4 damage.
Rogue: I steal a cake from the display case and attempt to backflip out of the store…*succeeds*
Me: Everyone is too scared and confused to notice that you just stole a cake.
Rogue: I sprint down the road holding the cake high above my head until I reach the river. I roll acrobatics to cross the river with a backflip. *Crits*
Me(clearly confused and shocked): You make it across the river without getting wet, cake completely intact.
Rogue: I run to the farmland and look for animals… *succeeds*
Me: You find some cows..?
Rogue: Perfect…I place the cake on the ground and roll to tip the cow by backflipping over it…*SUCCEEDS*
Me: The cow has been tipped, it thrashes about on the ground for a while…
Rogue: I go back to pick up the cake and sit down next to the cow. I shovel some cake in my hand and ask the cow if it wants any…*Fails Handle Animal*
Me: The cow hoofs you in the butt from its downed position.
Rogue: Oh well, more for me.
This was an extremely random and exhausting encounter, I had no idea what to say or do after this. However, after he got this out of his system he became a little more serious and actually did some roguish things.
To this day he is referred to as “The Backflip Bandit” and rolls acrobatics for backflips CONSTANTLY to retain his title.
The clock chimed 2 AM causing you to throw your brush down while letting out a frustrated growl. You were becoming desperate as you looked at your unfinished painting in front of you. No matter how hard you tried, the painting was just not coming out right. “You know you shouldn’t throw things like that, you might hurt someone.”
The sudden voice made you jump, you had been so preoccupied at your task at hand that you hadn’t even noticed the presence of another. What made it more surprising was who it was, Im Jaebum. The most talented and good looking man in your year. “What are you doing here?”
JB moved from the doorframe that he was leaning on and made his way towards you. His eyes focused on your canvas as he began to speak. “I got inspired, so I decided to get to work.” He paused for a moment seeming to be in deep thought. You couldn’t help but take the opportunity to stare and admire how handsome he looked in that moment. When he turned his head to look at you, you quickly averted your gaze, but something told you he knew exactly what you had been doing. He gave his a warm smile. “So tell me, what did that paintbrush do to deserve such treatment?”
“My painting isn’t coming out right,” you mumbled.
“Is that so?” He reached down to pick up your discarded brush to bring it back to you. “Here, continue.” You took the brush from his hand carefully, feeling unsure of yourself. You took the color you desired and began your work. You were entering your zone, becoming unaware of your surroundings as you tried to concentrate on the image in your head. But that concentration shattered as you felt someone press themselves against your back and gently grip your hand.
“Your strokes are a little uneven here.” JB’s hand led you to s portion of the painting you had done earlier. “If you can just blend the colors a little more then you might find it a little softer. It should bring emphasis on the eyes.”
Your face heated up at your close proximity as JB helped direct your painting strokes. “T-thank you,” you forced out.
JB stepped back leaving you alone in your bubble once more. “No problem. Anything for a pretty girl like you,” he winked. (drabble written by @rudeboywonho)
who is, actually, adopted, not his actual son. I’m still playing with the logistics of how this happens
basically something shitty’ll happen to Ezra’s parents and Kanan will take him in.
so basically from the age of seven he raises Ezra. (Kanan is 21 when he takes Ezra in)
At 8, Ezra asks Kanan if he can play baseball.
Kanan takes up some extra shifts at the bar he works at so he can pay for some good equipment for Ezra.
(Also: side note- the Empire is the controlling force here. There are soldiers all over the place yada yada yada. So same thing pretty muuucchh…I’ll draw out what the Stormtroopers look like.)
(this whole thing is kind of a futuristic-ish au, so it’s not too different, but its on one planet and people are all human etc. Cars still have wheels, so no floating stuff, uhhh…Sabine still blows shit up)
(haven’t fully decided if “the force” is going to be a thing. I think so.)
(okay so I actually just researched if stormtrooper armor would be effective in the real wold so I think they’d look the same. But I kind of want to still change their helmet designs)
So Kanan takes up the extra shifts, and Ezra’s okay with it because staying later with his dad at the bar means he can hang out with Zeb, who is going to be 18-ish at this time. (yeah ages are going to be different bear with me here okay?)
Kanan and Zeb are like, the coolest people Ezra knows. Well, more Zeb.
Then Kanan meets Hera (more on how later) and she hangs around the bar.
Hera’s like undercover working against the Empire but Ezra doesn’t know at first, he just likes Hera because she’s cool and funny and she gives him lollipops.
She also helps him with his homework and makes Kanan happy so Ezra likes her by default.
So by the time Ezra’s nine, Kanan enrolls him in baseball. The coach for his team, unfortunately dies (WTF THERE’S DEATH IN THIS OMG) in an industrial accident (if you understand where that reference is coming from.) so Kanan decides he’s gonna coach (don’t ask him why, he doesn’t know. Probably because Ezra begged him to).
Hera goes to watch one game because Ezra really wanted her to. And she dies of laughter when Kanan starts screeching at Ezra to run home and cheers when his son touches home base.
Ezra’s extra happy after because Hera buys him ice cream.
So more on this in a bit. I’ll get into Sabine next, a bit more on Zeb, and then it’s time for these kids to get older and time for Ezra to get that haircut.
