During character creation me and a friend of mine (although we didn’t know eachother that well at the time) had trouble coming up with character names. I’ll call the friend L. This is old enough that it’s somewhat paraphrased.
DM: Do you want me to use a character name generator?
DM: Ok Isaac you get Zebulon Bean.
Me: *Laughs* What kinda name is Zebulon Bean?
DM: IDK. Ok and L you get… omg you got Rose Bean.
Me: OMG we’re siblings!
L: No! Twins!
She rolls low for IQ and agility but high for beauty. I roll the opposite.
L: I got the looks!
Me: But I got the brains!
DM: What is your occupation? *Reads a list of options*
DM: Ok, what kind of farmers?
L: WEED FARMERS
DM: Sorry but I can’t allow drug references.
Me: “WHEAT” FARMERS
DM: Ok. You both start with a pound of “wheat.”
Later we agreed that the twins would be able to telepathically communicate and so we set up a skype chat so we could send messages without metagaming the rest of the party. However it ended up being this:
for like 10 pages.
DM: You walk toward the hut. You see a door.
Me: I kick the door down.
DM: You… what?
Me: I kick the door down.
DM: You aren’t even going to try opening it regularly?
Me: Nope. I kick the door down.
DM: Fine. You kick the door down, startling the poor innocent wizard inside. You know it was unlocked right?
So now neither Zebulon or Rose can enter a room without kicking the door down.
Later, we encounter a cave. The rest of the party is dealing with stuff outside
DM: You enter the cave. There’s a small path and a large opening. Both are dark. There is also some kind of orb in the center.
Me: I sneak down the small path.
DM: Ok. At the end you see it open into a larger area, it’s too dark to see anything, but gold is spilling out of it.
L: I touch the orb.
DM: The cavern lights up, revealing a big dragon facing you. Zebulon, the path you took has placed you behind the dragon.
Me: I use my grappling hook to hook onto the ceiling above the dragon but behind its head.
L: Oh hi Mr. Dragon.
Dragon: Who are you. What are you doing here? Are you alone.
L: *Manages to befriend the dragon and gain its trust by claiming she’s alone and I’m just stuck to the ceiling behind its head the whole time. We learn it’s trapped in its part of the room.*
Me: *Sneaks back out the pathway.*
Me: *Walks up* Oh hi Rose. Oh wow that’s a big dragon.
Dragon: Who are you? Did you hear anything?
Me: Ummmm…. Nooooooooooooo…….. Also I’m Zebulon. hi.
Background: I find it amusing to refer to Evard’s Black Tentacles as either Evard’s Black Tentacles of Forced Intrusion (because reference) or simply the Hentai spell.
Starting the session with recap:
DM (me): And right where we left off you all were caught in the Hentai spell fyi, your characters have no clue what that is.
Beat (the Bard)’s player: it’s an elvish term
Me, laughing: alright, an elvish term meaning porn, only used by the BDSM community though
Beat’s player: it is weirdly common amount high elves though
me: not that they will admit it.
later, the party has regrouped with the npcs who are stuck in the same place as the party and are updating them on what happened. Two of them actually knew the castor who temporarily captured the main party because they all went to wizard college together, but one is MIA and the other is asking the party for information to see what has changed about the castor.
Arden (Warlock): and she cast Hentai on us
I start to switch out of character before realizing
Arden’s player: She’s an elf she’d know what it is.
Nai (NPC): I’m very aware of that. I think P'hol has access to that through the guild.
Everyone cracks up as I realize what I said.
Nai: Not that they would ever use it.
Arden: You never know with the quiet ones.
Nai: No, P'hol is definitely not the type.
Arden’s Player: Oh shit, I thought that was out of character.
This work was a commission for a friend from my server who wanted a mix of screenshots and artwork and a heartwarming message to the world. He asked me that I share it where I can … so, here it is. ^_^/ It was quite the journey, wasn’t it?
