making of tenacious d

Probably should have seen the signs .

So we’re playing a session in which we have to stop a cult from raising an ancient evil/demon/abomination god via gathering its pieces that were turned into various items. Naturally, because the story would have been lame without the cult getting the items, the final encounter was to be to stop them from completing the ritual. However, the party’s NG Bard actually went and hampered our attempts to do so, for reasons they wouldn’t share.
When the cult succeeds, and the God starts monologuing, the Bard interrupted him.

Bard: Wait! Wait! Waaaaaaiiiiit, you motherfucker! We challenge you to a rock off! Give us one chance to rock your socks off.

Barbarian OOC while the Wizard is laughing: YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT YOU LET THIS BASTARD GET SUMMONED JUST SO YOU COULD MAKE A TENACIOUS D REFERENCE?!

Bard (OOC): Hey, DM was practically asking for it when they said one of his body parts was made into a pick.

DM: a +4 CURSED HEAVY WAR PICK, not a guitar pick

Bard (OOC): don’t care, still effectively a Pick of Destiny.
