[[My players made the mistake of letting me run a campaign on April Fool’s Day]]
Me: As you’re walking through the woods, you notice how eerily quiet everything is. Suddenly out of the corner of your eye, you see a shape about 30 feet back. You can tell it’s a human, but something about it makes you uneasy. Before you can do anything, however, it gets down on all fours and breaks into a sprint.
Sorcerer: (figured it out) …oh my god, you didn’t.
Me: Your instincts tell you to run, but he’s quickly gaining on you. As he gets closer, you can see he’s brandishing a knife and has blood on his face– no, there’s blood everywhere. He lunges for you, shouting out, “SHIA SURPRISE!”
The entire party: *exasperated groaning*
