When my dad was a teenager, he accidentally started working for a restaurant that was a front for the local mafia. He flipped burgers for a semester and then, when he wanted to leave, one of the members pulled a gun on him and said he couldn’t.
“Oh, fuck off,” said the guy’s superior. “Really, man? He just flips burgers, and he’s not even good at it. Let him go, dumbass.”
You’re a sidekick. The new bad guy in town has you and your hero captured. The bad guy walks into the room you two are being held in. Right as your hero begins his monologue explaining how the bad guy will never win, he pulls out a gun and shoots your hero dead on the spot.
As some of you may know, I go to college at Ohio state university. As some of you may have heard, there was a school shooting this morning.
So I guess the place to start is saying I’m safe. Luckily, I didn’t have a class this morning so I was in my dorm when the shooting occurred. The shooting took place right outside my dorm. I woke up to the sound of gun shots, and this email.
Apparently, one guy went in the building and pulled the fire alarm, and when everyone evacuated the shooter drove his car through the crowd, got out and started slashing at people with a machete, and then pulled out a gun. 9 people are hospitalized, thankfully only 1 in critical condition. This is a first hand account from someone there.
The shooter was killed. This is the view from my dorm window. It’s grainy, but you can see a dead body on the a white sheet surrounded by cones.
My friend was in a classroom directly across from the shooting. this is from his snapchat.
Police are still looking for the second accomplice. I haven’t left my dorm. I still have friends locked in their classrooms. This shouldn’t happen.
Me, reading my character sheet after almost dying in a fight with a fire dragon, but managing to make it run away because my DM pulled a chekhov’s gun on me, with several high degree burns etc: Uhm… DM?
Me: I just saw this now… I have resistance to fire? *A second passes, everyone on the table is staring daggers at me.* I’m… Sorry?
