YES!

Another oppotunity for my pointless ramblings.

But first, I'm going to mow my lawn. See you in 2 hours or so.

A bard story? I've got one...

A long time ago when I was first learning to DM (way back before 4.0 was a thing and 3.5 was still going strong), I was visting some friends out of state. And I suggested doing a one shot to introduce a few of them to the game. They asked me what they should do, and I said "oh, you can make your character's just about anyone! Just try to keep party balance in mind. I mean, you wouldn't want to all be bards, am I right?"

"Hey guys, let's all be bards!"

"Me and my big mouth."

So the 4 of them started working on a party of first level bards. I honestly can't remember everything about the party anymore, but one of them was a gnome whose instrument of choice was the flute... which doubled as a blow pipe. And one was a half orc whose instrument was a triangle. And he had 18 strength. And his motto was "I punch things. Really hard. And they die."

It got pretty silly.

Unfortunately, the one shot didn't really happen, but the making of characters was fun enough in its own right.

My most famous pony character is a pegasus that fights monsters for a living. THat is...

...not all, actually. I also made her hilariously bad at household chores, terrified of sociopaths, AND ironically enough not one to take lead in the bedroom. Also she's a child by rape (but her mother loves her so she's only slightly traumatized), and grew up ina manehatten ghetto. Currently she's married to a unicorn with her own slew of problems.

I don't like one-dimensional characters.

Freeform forum. Although I did make a BESM sheet for her for fun... but that basically dissappeared due to a forum crash.

I was a bard in a campain and my DM wanted me to actually say things for my attacks that have words. I kept shouting "YOUR MOTHER WAS A NICE LADY" and when I rolled a twenty he made it so one enemy broke into tears, another has a mental breakdown, and the last one's head exploded. Twas an interesting day.

I laughed far harder at this than I should have.
