Jande Utter BS: Dungeons and Dragons (96* d) RE: Utter BS: Dungeons and Dragons 08 May 01


I'm enjoying this thread very much! In my first and so far, only, D&D my character was Lyrra, a 20-yr-old bard. she carries a couple of mysterious magical jewelled items with her and, of course a lyre.

As a first-level, she didn't get to do much in the game except tag along and be part of the concensus discussions. But she made friends with a wizard who gave her some of the spells from his spellbook, and she picked up some treasure, which will come in handy in the future. She also was made a level Two at the end of that adventure.

Getting to play a D&D was a dream come true for me. I enjoyed it emmensely.

Traps? Hmmmm...

The glowing green goop-creatures we ran into in one of the caves tended to dissolve any living flesh like acid. Unfortunately they also tended to follow whoever came too close to them. Fortunately they could be out-run if you were fast enough! Two of us died in the skirmish. Fortunately the Cleric was able to eventually bring us back to life.

For the battle with the green globs, we *did* use figurines to represent us and pieces of green paper were the globs. Proximity was important. The DM placed the figures and paper bits, and we all threw dice to see how close the creatures came to us and to what percentage the warriors/fighters in our group would damage or vanquish the green glob(s) they elected to fight.

I'm looking forward to the next D&D very much!

BTW, thanks for this thread. I'm having a horrible time right now and this cheered me a bit...
