Last night is the hardest I’ve laughed in a long time. I was crying. I couldn’t breathe. It was great.
And it was all thanks to a series of dice flubs me and my friend rolled trying to get our level 8 characters over a 10 foot tall wooden fence. We failed probably a dozen times. Even though we were helping each other. My buddy even spent a panache point, and we still only managed a 2 on our combined skill check. I’m almost certain the DC was only a 10 or something. We never did get over the damn thing. I almost called our wizard over to cast Fly on us.
We’re talking pretty competent heroic characters, too. We’ve defeated a dragon. We had just killed some hellknights like an hour earlier. And yet we were thoroughly and repeatedly defeated by a privacy fence. I’m pretty sure I could have done it in real life if I had to.
I love this game.
