our cute little hostage
By - SuperKonsti
Does your party include a warlock who’s singing caused a bar fight, and a dwarf who tried to trick the paladin into digging up a goblin cesspool?
No, but that sounds very interesting
Well for the Kobold part, kobold who ran away from us accidentally fell into his own pit trap and broke its leg. We saved it and chained him because… well something went wrong with our quest and we needed a scapegoat. Later we found a cursed crown, the warlock decided to try it on despite the whole party warning him that putting strange magical items on his head is dumb. He ended up using an inspiration point to undo his action, and we used the Kobold as test subject. We think the crown gives bonus Charisma, but curses you to become super egocentric or something, because that Kobold is now prancing around like a noble of some sort and he get real pissy if you try to remove his crown. We decided to keep him. He is name is King Stockholm.
The cesspool thing is that since a player had to drop out of the campaign last minute and the DM has set everything for 4 PCs, he introduced Sir George, a “paladin” who is the grandchild of a famous hero to act as backup and guide to push us in the right direction. He’s arrogant, a glory hound, not that competent, and we think he’s less of a paladin and more a fancy pants with a nice sword. He immediately rubbed my character the wrong way, a dwarf ranger. So half the out of action interactions is our party screwing with Sir George, including that time we razed a goblin camp, and my dwarf used his knowledge of goblin to find where they would have buried their… well you get what. He then told Sir George goblins often bury valuables around their camps, and that he should dig just over there see if there anything good. Sadly, Sir George was not the type for manual labour, but the barbarian overheard and did dig up the shit.
The bar fight was when our warlock attempted to sing along to the barbarian’s violin in the tavern. He rolled a natural 1, meaning his singing was so bad a few patrons decided to grab him and toss him out. Unfortunately, my dwarf had taken a long to the warlock, so I climbed on the table, and proceeded to flying tackle one of them. Cue the crashing onto the table, the free for all, the warlock running to hide, my dwarf getting surprisingly good rolls and knocking out people left and right. Oh and Sir George during this time, as the self appointed face of the party, had left to introduce himself to the town mayor, and returned just in time to see me tossing an unconscious guy out the door. I did leave the bartender a very good tip.
Oooo, what was the kobolds name? My party named ours Randy.
Bwick... Actually Rick, but he has a lisp
That is great!
Kobolds have short lives
See, but what if the kobold is the barbarian?
The party always needs a mascot
I love it when my players adopt a little monster they come across. It's so cute, cause they treat the NPC like a child or sentient pet. I have a party of 3 right now, and they each have their own NPC: a kobold named Scales, a female goblin named Vria, and a baby drake named Belch.
