  • damn i missed the tavern keeper pole. I have a tavern keeper that my players are always hunting for in every world. The tavern keeper has a really bad stutter and is half deaf so always mishears everything, then takes a while to answer a question that's not the players question. Often the players spend the entire session searching all the taverns in the nearest city.

  • 3:41:20 Jester makes an Arcane looking circle, what I imagine is that it has very pretty, flowery looking sigils that at first look sort of like a "real" arcane circle... ...but after about 30 seconds of looking at it you realize that all the runes are dick shaped. It is an arcane circle of dicks. Dickromancy.

  • Laura Bailey's improv humor with her sending spells is on par with "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" She is practically daring ANYONE to try not to laugh, and I love it. Her "Do-do-do-doo, hmm-hmm donuts!" line had me rolling with laughter for several minutes.

  • Theory & Questions: Is Jester a Quasi-deity or the daughter of a Quasi-deity? The Traveler is known as the Giver of Gifts, but a famous proverb states to "beware the gifts of the Traveler". Who else "bring many Gifts"? The goddamned Gentleman. I am almost 100% sure he is not Evil but also almost 100% sure he is not Good either. The Traveler is on the wrong side of the Divine Gate preventing Gods, from physically crossing into the Prime Material Plane. Did he cross? Was he there all along? Are the Prime Deities back? Are the Betrayer Gods back? PS: I am the only one thinking Luxon is a Sleeping Primordial Titan of Light or/and Rebirth?

  • Huh, I didn't expect that Fjord would go the path of a Paladin. I actually expected him to still be a Warlock, just not being a Kraken Warlock (or whatever he previously was), but being an Archfey or Celestial one... I'm wondering if he's just now multiclassing into Paladin (while retaining his Warlock powers, powered by the Wildmother) or if his Warlock-Levels are slowly being transformed into Paladin levels or something even more Homebrew...

    Memento MoriMemento Mori26 gün önce
    • Maybe he will find his true self in service of the Wildmother and will become a Celestial or Archfey Warlock 😊
