So, today, this happened….
Look, okay, I know what you’re thinking, but I swear I didn’t start this! Well… I sort of did. It’s a long story. You see…
Last Night, on Dungeons & Dragons™…
The Company of the Grey Wolf had run into a Lawful Good Dwarven Strike Force who were stubbornly determined to knock them out of the sky, literally. Seems they got the idea somehow that the players were the bad guys for some reason (long story), and they were just the task for to take them down. But things didn’t go that way, thanks to the supernatural charisma of a smooth-talking Sorcerlock? Warlerer? Whatever. They convinced the Dwarves to let them go on one condition… That they give the Dwarves a personal trinket that could later be used to magically track them down should their initial suspicions prove correct. So they gave the Dwarves a trinket and bid them farewell, and I as a DM smiled victoriously knowing that my awesome Dwarven strike force had the plot-macguffin they needed to be able to find the players at an opportune moment in the future. I patted myself on the back for a job well done.
It came back to bite me in the ass.
Two hours later, when faced with the same choice of allowing someone they didn’t trust to go free, Natalie aka @ChaoticRogue, the party Wizard (who typically plays a Rogue – and let’s face it, is one in real life) said “give us a trinket with which to magically track you by should we find we let you go in error later.”
Well, shit. I asked for this. So I just smiled and said “Okay, she gives you her signet ring.”
And that’s how this happened…
Which lead to this…
…and then this…
…and finally this.
Well, I guess that settles it… Looks like Chaotic Rogue Entertainment will be sponsoring an all Rogue D&D live stream for charity at some point in the not too distant future.
Thanks guys. It’s not like I don’t already have a million things on my plate. 😛
But I guess if it is for charity… (Cuz Rogues love giving away money for charity, right?)
Spread the word out people, #Rogues4Charity is a thing now. Get that hashtag trending, cuz it looks like before long we’re doing a live stream and we’ll definitely want everybody to know about it. That’s all for now.
But wait! What does any of this have to do with making my D&D game more fun “By Any Means Necessary?”
It’s for CHARITY. Besides, live streams are fun.
And in any event, I taught you how to convince nobles to hand over signet rings to your Rogue characters without having to steal. Did that not count? Sheesh.*rolls eyes* Everybody’s a critic….
