Short D&D, long quote list

July 29, 2004 12:09 am

Had a short D&D session this evening. Didn’t get far, but I think everyone had fun anyway. The party spent some time looting Archimago’s fortress – and Nadrak is serious about this. The poor dominated butler has been sent into the nearest big town, Corwyn, to sell all the valuables as well as the deed to the fortress itself! All this will, of course, be turned over to Nadrak before the spell runs out. In 13 days. Sheesh.   

Then the party hit the road and we had a long, drawn out battle during which the DM learned…or re-learned…a lesson or three. They were attacked in the woods by a band of rogues, which included a pair of spellcasters and a cornugon….

Oh, and Tae – I DO see your point about my retainer looking like a butterfly from the right angle.   

See Sept. 1, 2004 for the current version of the quote list. -Ed.

What lessons did you learn/relearn?

Oh, just things one might think were obvious – like having a list of useful spells handy when your next bandit party has a spellcaster or two. And forgetting that Nadrak had cast anti-magic field around himself, and that Petra’s reflexes make her hard as all get-out to hit. Things anyone with half a brain might know, but apparently I managed to bury that half of my brain under the other half. Ooops.

Maybe you just repressed it all. Anto-magic fields are a bad thing sorceresses. They usually result in many puddles of the spellcaster’s rich, red blood. Does Odette really want to remember moments like that? Where she can see an arm in one corner, her leg in another, and her wings sticking to the ceiling with gooey intestines? Wow. Crunch just got real excited…. in an innocent sort of way.

Oh, no, I definately do want to remember taking on that red dragon!

An anti-magic field wasn’t involved in that, however. So I’m going to accept your explanation, thanks.

You still need Gremlin’s “I’m an extra in my own life” quote. That was great too. 🙂

Oh, yeah! Any idea when that was?
