I absolutely love D&D. One of my first games, my party and I walked out of a tavern (very start of the game) and I felt this need to do a spot check. I spotted a foot on the roof of the tavern, and instead of thinking it over, my entire group and I decided to hunt the guy down. We managed to take out a lvl 6 rogue (who had healing pots too DX) by sheer luck. Haha!
Orc must have been wasted out of his mind to lose that grapple check. Not trying to be sexist or anything, just saying druids don't usually have the stats or nack for that sort of thing.
I got a dwarf druid named Gorignak Vorm (translated it means Rock Mold ), he's pretty useless as combat caster (probably cuz casters aren't my thing) but he makes awesome utility druid. "Ogres on the cliff start throwing rocks at the party, what do you do?" My response... *casts rock to mud and continues on our way* I play him like hes some sorta Avatar: the last airbender spinoff, trying to master all four elements and such.
I know its a weird thing but thats why I liked it so much. I mean dwarfs get a bonus to wisdom so why not!
His deity was his pet rock with googly eyes painted on it. Occasionally the groups rogue would steal it and plant it places, like in somebody's purse. He also had a badger animal companion which he purchased full plate barding for.
That must be the greatest Deity ever. And for some reason, the badger reminds me of my friend's halfling rogue. He had his ranger friend tame a dire weasel for him. So now instead of a riding dog, he has a dire weasel to get around. xD
Lol, we had a halfling ranger do a similar thing but her mounts kept dieing so she gave up and bought an exotic saddle and put it on my half-orc barbarain's shoulder, so I had a halfling turret of sorts. She'd fire off like three arrows a round and I'd cream what was left.
The idea was a great one up until a T-rex landed a bite on me, I took the damage but she got swallowed. Now that I think back on it, we should have probably gotten her a seat belt or something...
Haha, yes xD And the best is the moments when your leader doesn't know what the hell is going on and just decides to attack and kill... and everyone gets hurt... even the rangers who run out the door xD
If you're leader doesn't know whats going on, he's not a very good leader now is he? Yeah, my groups learned to keep an eye on me for such reasons... especially after I willingly got possessed by demon.
Lol, no need to break a good sterotype especially if the sandwiches are good. And yeah the chick in our group brought in cupcakes and other snacks whenever she showed up. We even took a picture of one of em when she came in with like toffy sprinkled ones topped with bacon.
I think its just me, but I take dungeons way more seriously. I guess cuz you can find way more deadly things in a dungeon than you can in a bar ^.^ I can see what you mean tho. The wizard that I play with acts like everything is a bar fight, even if he cant do shiz with his strength....XD
Meatsheilds are really fun to play, BECAUSE of that factor. I usually end up being a magic user tho (most times a Cleric) because A) Without a cleric you die. and B) nobody ever wants to be a magic user. At least in my party, that is. Half of the fun is when people do stupid stuff tho (and dont die because of it) So many memories....
