Really impressed with Cozy Glow for making a grown stallion sweat with fear and managing to get an entire class of teenage students to agree on a single course of action.

Cozy got the other students to think that they're living out one of those "Animal House" style high-school/college comedies, and that this is the ending where the dance party breaks out.

Now I want one of those "where are they now" epilogues with her and the Student 6.

Neighsay invested in the "Stable U" chain of motels in the southern lands. He later became mayor of Tallahorsie on the slogan "We don't care how they do it up Manehatten!"

Oops. Maske that "...how they do it IN Manehatten!"

Ah how the mighty have fallen. X-level wizard takes down 6 pcs and then loses to a mob of commoners, experts, and adepts.

Always remember, quantity is it's own type of quality! Also with no spells left a Wizard is pretty much a commoner who knows things and extra HP.

Back when 5e was still being playtested, some person on a forum complained that you could kill anything if you had enough Commoners armed with crossbows fire at it.

Cue the thread making fun of it with the concept of hectoPeasants, the unit for how many Commoners with crossbows do you need to kill a given creature in one round.

A mid-level wizard can probably kill 1 Commoner per round just with melee attacks, tbf.

This *is* an adventuring school. If the PCs are level 5 in a PC class, even if they're absolutely amazing, I expect a lot of the other students are probably at least level 3 in PC classes.
There might even be some other level 5s, maybe a level 6(!) or two.

I don't know about you, but teenagers are probably the scariest age group.

As a group and a general rule, they're the ones who think they're invincible, rarely stop to think about consequences of personal actions, and particularly susceptible to mob mentality and peer pressure...

I agree completely. They can be anywhere from Rebels without a cause to fighting blindly for God as they've had it explained to them. There are MANY in-between these two extremes, and some are scarier than others.

Had a punk in my neighborhood try and steal a deer statue, from what he didn't realize was a former police officers house. The statue itself was quite heavy and he didn't make it very far before ditching it, but he was arrested and charges were pressed by my neighbours for the theft.

I still think an adult is more dangerous as assholes, sociopaths and psychopaths can get in positions of power as physician, police, politician, military, etc. Teenagers can do stupid things without thinking, adults can do evil things fully aware of it and get away with it.
Guest 28th Jun 2019, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, but that's rare. ALL teenagers are dumb and daring.

No no! It is way more common than you think. In fact one of the reasons that they can get away with doing awful things is because they have many equally evil allies covering each other so people who tries to fight them end in the short end of the stick. Take United Nations for example, their speech is all about human rights and keep peace in areas destroyed by war yet there are thousands of child rape linked cause by their "peacekeeper" forces, human traffic, child prostitution, etc and nobody gets punished. You can't get that if there is only one or another corrupt member in the group, they are the majority but pose as the good guys. Sources:

It almost looks like the yellow mare in panel 4 has a slasher smile on her face. Sure, it's the tail of the pony in front of her, but still...

So the college students are rioting and driving out the administration?

How very topical of you Spud. ;)

"Rage against the MAN!" is not a hard target to focus student attention on.

Especially not when the target has already caused problems.

Getting teenagers (...or anyone really) to work together without arguing: clearly the least realistic aspect of the show.
