It was an off-week in the main city our guild resides in, and our Human Fighter, Charlemagne, and our Dragonborn Bard, Lizardking, decided to barhop across the various taverns in the city. Towards the end of the night, as they’re getting bored with swindling people out of their money with their magic deck of cards, they decide to call on our drunk, belligerent Dragonborn Fighter, Wulgar, to join the fun and see if they can trick him into starting a good old fashioned tavern brawl. Wulgar stumbles into the tavern, proudly wearing his blindingly shiny golden dragonscale armor that he smithed himself. He sits down next to Charlemagne at the bar, as Lizardking is coming back from the bathroom.
Lizardking: Hey Wulgar, see those three guys at the corner of the bar over there? They’ve been talking shit all night. Heard them mouthing off on my way back from the bathroom just now, too.
DM: Roll a persuasion check.
Lizardking: *rolls nat20*
Wulgar: Talking shit? About us?
Lizardking: Yeah, they said your armor is flashy and tacky.
Wulgar: Well THEY’RE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
He then proceeds to start a fight with these three poor humans who have no idea why there’s a belligerent Dragonborn using their bodies as weapons against each other. Charlemagne joins in and the whole tavern either leaves or gets knocked out.
Fast forward to the end of the week, we’ve embarked through some dark woods and encountered two basilisks. During the battle, Lizardking decides to use some stirring words to inspire Wulgar.
“Hey Wulgar! This basilisk is talking shit about your armor!”
I spent about two hours today speaking Swedish at a language café. I know I made lots of mistakes and my pronunciation was probably awful, but it was so much fun! And it boosted my self confidence quite a bit knowing that I can hold a conversation that goes beyond the very basics!
have you ever been to a tea party with a bunch of nut jobs, it's a really lively event.
“Good stranger, I have been attending tea parties with high nobility since early adolescence. Many nobles take to calling the common folk things like ‘low borns’ or ‘simpletons’, but several of those very same people are battier than a heap of guano.”
“The Duke of House Claive is a pompous oaf who ends nearly every sentence with ‘gods above’. A young lord of House Fullton enjoys stirring a few spoonfuls of salt into his tea. The second heiress to House Brandywine has a glass eye that she claims allows her to see into the future… which is nonsense, as she once ‘predicted’ that Lord Chrom’s firstborn would be a boy named ‘Buckley’. And please do not get me started on any of the times Lady Lissa has asked me to accompany her to tea with Maribelle… suffice to say, she once threatened to malice me with her parasol if I ever harmed milady in any way, shape, or form… the very nerve.”
“What I am getting at, good stranger, is that I do not believe I could share tea with stranger company than I already have unless Grima was to invite me over to enjoy a cup of tea and scones with General Orson of Renais and Nergal of the Black Fang… Heavens, what an uncomfortable tea party that would be.“
Somehow despite the fact that I know nothing of the canon events and my sole knowledge of the series consists of copious consumption of fanfic, fanart and amvs I have managed to get myself dragged onto the TodoDeku ship and find myself in love with these dorks.
omg guys, there’s this series of GF shorts named “Shop at Home with Mr. Mystery” which originally aired in November 2015 and is basically a bunch of fake commercials featuring puppet!Stan trying to ged rid of various Mystery Shack junk, and I really regret not watching it sooner because it’s a *freaking treasure*. can’t remember the last time I got this inspired to draw GF shit :D
(Bill and Stan’s phone talk is from this short and this line actually made me freak out for a second because knowing Alex, it’s either a subtle foreshadowing to the finale, or a hint that Bill is still in Stan’s mind :)))
