GM: Recap for Sam, since he was out last week.

Ellibelli Bannergnome: I got a banner!

GM: Besides that.

Elli: I know! I could make myself look like a big chest full of treasure with Minor Illusion! What do you think, Sam? Carry me!

Sam: No. Harvey can carry you.

Marmolade Ranger-danger: That seems like a lot of work to have a bigger chest.

Elli: Hush, you.

GM: All of this because you won’t say “Tiamat, our mother and strength?”

Elli: Not “won’t.” Can’t. Am physically not able. I can say “For Bahamat! Aieeeeeee!”

Alexeron: No.

Sam: So, I could polymorph you into a rat. Or crow. Then you could go over the walls.

Elli: Oooh! I do have experience with wings.

GM: AND YOU APPROACH THE WALLS YOU SAY?

Elli: Caw. I’m a crow.

GM: Not you. You’re not even a bird yet. Shut up.

Elli: *sticks out her tongue*

GM: It’s a foot thick door.

Adrin Burnlodge: What? That’s insane.

Elli: It’s a Giant’s castle. What did you expect?

GM: You haven’t seen that yet. No meta.

Elli: Oh, when aren’t we meta?

GM: Hmm. I didn’t know that.

Alexeron: What?

GM: It’s evil.

Elli: In this module? No! Say it’s not so.

Sully-cat in his natural habitat – the middle of everything.

Sometime shortly after this picture was taken, the Bellysucker 9000 alarmed for the third time today, claiming it was blocked. I managed to get the alarm to clear, but the wound vac has been extremely pinchy today and uncomfortable today. It was certainly not helping my mood toward the game.

Module spoilers follow. Stop here if you plan to play Hoard of the Dragon Queen.

GM as Talis the White: Sheath your weapons, fools.

Ellibelli Stabby-sneaky: Does she have people with her?

GM: Yes.

Elli: *to the people with Talis* Yeah! Sheath your weapons, fools.

After a long discussion of where everyone is and why Talis the White shouldn’t be casting spells at us.

Elli: We just didn’t want to die horribly in the hall. We’d like to choose where we die horribly.

Marmalade Ranger-danger: S-U-T, S-U-L-B.

GM: What are you doing?

Marmalade: Reminding you that we don’t know how to spell “subtle.”

Adrin: *reveals his face to Talis, his childhood friend* We need to talk, old friend.

GM as Talis: Ah, Adrin. I knew it was you by the amount of collateral damage to my lodge.

GM: For the most part, the rooms in the lodge are very well-appointed.

Elli: Except for the ones that are smoke damaged. *high fives Adrin Burnlodge and Alexeron Farstrider*

GM as Talis: Rezmir follows Severin the Red. He is even more the fool than the lot of you to try to try to raise the Queen of Dragons.

Elli: That’s what we’ve been saying.

Talis the White: I am infinitely more qualified to wear the white mask than Varrom.

Elli: Varrom the so-called white. *writes down the name* I just want to make sure to delivery your regards to the right person when I’m stabbing them.

GM: The name of the town is Parnast.

Elli: Porn-nest?

GM: PAR-NAST

Damn it, Sully Cat. You are not the Spine of the World. GM: Roll Initiative.

Ellibelli Dragon-gnome: What’s the name of this adventure? Whores of the Dragon Queen?

DM: Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Hoard!

Elli: Yeah, I’ll believe there’s treasure in this adventure when I see it.

Elli: Oh, in the last room, we found a Wand of Secrets. The command word for the wand is Rad-nu. It pulses is a trap or secret door is within 30 feet. Who wants it?

DM: It’s more of a throb than a pulse.

Alexeron Farstrider: Not me.

Adrin Magepants: No, thanks.

Marmalade Ranger-danger: Uh, no. I’m good.

Samwise Bardfast: All you, Elli. You keep your throbbing wand.

DM: There are a pair of standing stones. They have a curve at the top. Sort of an arch.

Elli: Are they yellowish?

Alexeron: NO! We are NOT at McDonalds!

Elli: Just checking.

Marmalade: I have Dragons as one of my favored enemies. I use my Primal sense to sense if there are any of my favored enemies nearby.

DM: There are (counts quickly) 10 nearby.

Marmalade: There are 11 Dragons nearby, if we count Ellibelli.

Elli: See. I told you I’m a dragon.

DM: Ellibelli isn’t registering on your dragon-sense.

Marmalade: I know where my bread is buttered.

Sam: I say “Drazir” and run in.

DM: Roll your constitution check.

Sam: (Rolls) 4

Elli: (Sighs) I drag Sam out of the way and lean him by the arrow slit room door.

DM: I’ve got to give it to you, Sam. If at first you don’t succeed, yell Drazir and try again.

DM: These are gargoyles.

Elli: Does one of them look like Michael Dorn? The Michael Dorn Gargoyle was hot?

DM: No, but one looks a little like Gilbert Godfrey.

Marmalade and Elli: (together) I target the one who looks like Gilbert Godfrey first.

Adrin: (Opens the door. Throws a fireball. Closes the Door) TROLLS!

Alexeron: (Opens the door. Casts shatter. Closes the Door) STILL TROLLS!

Alexeron: So, Adrin’s flaming sphere is blocking the door into the entry hall and the trolls are blocking the door out?

DM: Yes. And the door is on fire.

Alexeron: I cast Invisibility and move 5 feet to the right. *pop*

DM: (dice rolling behind the screen) They don’t seem to be able to find you.

DM: Elli, you hear doors opening and closing in the next rooms.

Elli: We’ve got more incoming!

DM: The door into the entryway is on fire from Adrin’s flaming sphere. The flames are licking the ceiling. The Hunting lodge is on fire.

Elli: *singing* The lodge. The lodge. The lodge is on fi-re. (stops) Sam. Among your people, you are known as Samuel Burnleaf. Adrin, from now on, you shall be known by the gnomish name Adrin Burnlodge.

Sam: (Goes up to the second story of the burning lodge)

Harvey Littlefoot: Elli, where should we go?

Elli: Sam should never should be left alone.

Harvey: Upstairs it is.

Elli: I’m sad. I had visions of Harvey and Elli’s Hunting Lodge in the future.
