D&D Ate My Post

I have no blog post today. I have no excuse, except for the fact that I was up late playing D&D with friends and my character may have* ended up molested by gnomes.

I still don't understand 4th Edition D&D rules entirely, but it's good to know that somethings never change.**

(* "may have" in this case can be read as "totally".)

(** Sadly, even with this little encounter, I am probably one of the luckier players in the group if you look at the awkward and/or appalling mishaps which end up happening to our characters.)

    "Sadly, even with this little encounter, I am probably one of the luckier players in the group if you look at the awkward and/or appalling mishaps which end up happening to our characters."

    D&D is all about embarrassing the PCs, right? There used to be (and possibly still is) a game store called B.R. Snasis. I assumed it was the owner's name or somesuch, but one of the employees corrected me. It's short for what always happened to their D&D characters:

    Beaten, robbed, stripped naked and sold into slavery.

    Personally, I think you ought to do *more* D&D posts. Other people's campaigns always interest me.

    I am jealous because my group isn't going to get to have another session until March.

    D&D posts are always fun, so I agree with the "more D&D posts" suggestion above.

    And I'm just not a sadistic enough DM, I guess. Most of the awkward and/or appalling things that happen to my PCs happen after I've asked their players "are you sure that's what you want to do?" Sometimes four or even five times...

    Ah, but that's the beauty of it. Even after four or five increasingly unsubtle warnings, they still go ahead and do something idiotic and/or life-threatening. It's comedy gold, I tell you. :)

    I feel like Fred Savage's character in The Princess Bride: "Molested by gnomes is good."

    Seriously, more D&D stories!

    (And Rich, B.R. Snasis is *gold*!)
