BRIEF VORNHEIM SPOILERS - STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY.
Everyone rebuilt their character for tonight's game.
Tim made a warforged. For those in the know, that is basically a magic metal robot. His class was a mentalist (or something like that,) which basically meant that he was a psychic magic metal robot. Tim played him very much like C3-PO, but not meaning to. I had to point it out to him - though I still dont' think he believed me - even though he had named the character THREE.
So the guys were in a bad guy's house in Vayniris - straight outta Vornheim. They were in the middle of a fight in the entryway. It was a big room, and the PCs were nicely spread out - all far away from each other. One was even running into the next room - the kitchen - chasing a minion. You know - perfect 4e split the party set-up. It was so perfect that Wil Wheaton's ghost almost materialized.
Well, I took that moment to have a nasty creature of Zak's pop out of a doorway and go for the closest character - which was the Cleric of Pelor - Sunny. The creature's attack ignored her armor and dissolved Sunny's scale mail into goo with one strike. I was happy with myself. Rarely does anything like that happen in 4e. A player's possessions are pretty sacrosanct. Only a real bastard would melt someone's armor.
Heh Heh Heh.
Tim's eyes bugged out. His turn was next. His magic robot took one look at the metal dissolving beast and ran out of the room. He ran out into the road and continued running down the road.
Everyone else busted out laughing uncontrollably. I started laughing so hard . . . I laughed so hard . . . well . . . I laughed so hard that I farted.
I think no one heard because of the laughter. I said sorry, but no one responded - I think because of all the noise form laughing. I hope it was because no one heard any of it.
Oh well. They all know now - or soon will. But dammit - it was worth a fart. It was damn funny.
This is why I role play.
Well, not to have an excuse to fart in public - but - well . . . I should probably just shut up now.
