Dungeons & Dragons: "Dang Ol'"
Posted: Monday June 10th, 2013 by

When our friend Dubble J gets excited and rattles off the details of the spell/ability he's using, he starts to sound remarkably like Boomhauer from King of the Hill. It gets worse if we get a couple of beers in him. Words get smooshed together, there are moments of speech compression, G's get ellipted, he includes interesting adages like "dang ol'" and "in yo' face", he repeats himself, and -because he wants to make sure the DM knows exactly what he's doing- there's no paraphrasing.

Last night we came face to face with an adult Green Dragon we've been zeroing in on for the last few sessions. So we were all anxious. The Dragon decided he wanted to taunt us, then he offered us the very thing we're looking for. But, our Lawful Good "I hate chromatics" Dragonborn Paladin was having none of it. Thunk was being eyeballed by Drow. And, Dubble J's character Barrian (a lecherous eladrin with a drug habit) saw gold; so, his path was pretty much set as well.

Because this was a "boss" fight, everyone was popping dailies (except Thunk, who has no dailies). Dubble J hit the point where he was going to to expend an action point as well. What followed was what felt like 10 minutes of non stop talking. The abilities he picked had so many effects and clauses and saves, it was just kind of crazy. Then he started repeating it all when we looked confused.

It was fantastic.
