Guest Author's Note: "Pinkie Pie may be rubbing off, but a Story Time prompt from those disarming instructions: tell a story of when a book, or other inanimate object, rolled a Charisma check (or equivalent in another system)."

Newbiespud's Note: Got another half of a podcast episode, to be completed next update!

A trap that came with instructions? Uh... would you want to trust that? Cause that sounds pretty suspect, unless maybe it is the instruction book that dungeon guards get at orientation so they know their way around dungeon patrolling without setting off traps themselves. Maybe then.

An inanimate object that rolled Charisma? Can't think of any.

Two words: Intelligent items. Sure, most of them are weapons, but not all of them.

Well I've had the party fight animated objects all the time; chairs, couches, intelligent danging sword, viking armoire... but nothing comes to mind of an instance any of those items had to make a Charisma check.

As for smart dungeon guards, savvy adventurers would target the dim ones. Or go raid their rooms for notes, keys, etc.

Thank you for that wonderful, wonderful idea on what to give my players.

The problem is that smart dungeon guards would not carry the book around. Where would she find it?

I've always liked the Lord Darcy mysteries, in which science doesn't exist but magic is a science. Every spell has its principles. A good "forensic sorcerer" can examine a spell and work out how to counter it. Whether he has the ability is another thing.

For some reason, I'm thinking of that "world's most comfortable chair" from The Tick.

Which, apparently, had nothing to do with Chairface.
