Now would be a good time to share a story about spectacular failures in death-pit navigation.

In other news, I'm going to staying in Portland for several weeks starting today, which means I'll be in town for Northwest Bronyfest. I'd like to do something cool and Friendship is Dragons-related at the meetup, but I have zero ideas. Any thoughts?

Let's run a real My Little Pony adventure for a lucky party at the Bronyfest. Also, we should just meet up and chat. It's what friends do. ;)

Peoplehave missed you at the D&D game too, you seattle-lubber.

Um, you do know that I don't need to roll for basic flight right? Just flying in adverse conditions, in combat, or when performing tricky maneuvers.

Also, spikes can also do the trick. Fun times making this one group I was DMing for deal with them.

Basically, they were in a two-room dungeon. There were two sets of doors leading to the next room. The Warlord tries to stealth and peek into the next room, despite the other players yelling at him. His Perception check reveals a pit trap in the room just after the door he was opening. He gets spotted, so they slam the door shut and wait for people to come to them.

My players sat at my table for five minutes in silence as I just sat there with my arms crossed, grinning. They realized there was no way the people in there were leaving their room, so they came up with a new plan.

The goliath paladin(the party tank, basically) would go in through the door the warlord had been spotted at while the rest of the party would go through the other set of doors. He'd distract the enemies while the rest of the party swung around for a pincer.

Needless to say, he burst through the door and leaped over the pit trap, yelling challenges the whole way. He immediately takes a frost bolt to the chest, knocking him backwards onto the spike pi
