Hades suddenly realizes he technically never “claimed” Nico, everyone just figured it out. To fix his mistake and be a good dad whose sone knows he loves him and is proud of him, Hades personally comes to Camp Half Blood with a megaphone and shouts NICO DI ANGELO IS MY SON
We are in a dank cave with water flowing from somewhere. Our Cleric is fighting the last enemy.
Dwarf Cleric: I throw my shield, Captain America style.
Me GM: Ok.
(rolls nat 1)
Me: You throw your shield into the river.
Dwarf: What river?
Me: That one. (Points to map)
He bought another shield.
Dwarf: I throw my shield at a random guy.
Me: (Rolls to determine target.)(Target is himself. Rolls nat 20. To shake things up, I roll on the something happens table. “An old enemy returns…” is what I got.
Me: Holy shit. So…you throw your shield, it curves round, and conks you on the skull. (Rolls max damage possible)
Dwarf: At least I still have my shield.
Me: A river comes crashing down the mountain, and sweeps away your shield. As it fades away, you can see your other shield in the river.
Dwarf: I fight the river.
Me: (rolls nat 1)
Me: The river forms a water elemental, and the water elemental takes both of your shields…
Me: (rolls two nat 20s)
Me: WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK! THIS ELEMENTAL SLAPS YOU AROUND WITH BOTH OF YOUR SHIELDS UNTIL YOU ARE UNCONSCIOUS, AND THEN LEAVES.
Bard: I loot him
A moment of magic. Rather than spend Christmas alone, I spent it on a solo adventure. Make sense? I was having trouble explaining what this meant until this moment happened and I knew I was right. Loneliness is a state of mind. Whereas being my yourself can be a magical experience.
