Another double-length comic, celebrating 10 * 2.

Stories-in-the-comments time! In today's comic, the DM is playing up a romance between Spike and Rarity, an NPC and a PC. If you like, tell a story about an in-character romance and how it played out (or where it ended horribly, if applicable).

Twilight's making the right call here on just ignoring Spike/DM.

Once we all had to climb a ladder that we had to jump across a row of spikes to latch on to. My impatient friend jumped right on my back after I got on and the gay jokes just started everywhere across the table.In the end my cleric passed his religion check for "Shunning away these new found feelings" and he failed his endurance for...well...just take a wild guess.

Honestly it would have been awkward or odd, but we all took it as a joke, and staying (Only slightly) mature about it made it worth it in the end.

My gaming group seems to mostly avoid role-playing relationships, but one incident springs to mind. We had a long-running campaign where a particular recurring NPC sorcerer was described as "the sexiest man alive" and was very promiscuous. Female members of our party had to make periodic will saves (or intervention by a more resilient friend) to avoid becoming besotted with him. It became a bit of a meme with the group.
Fifteen or so levels later, it was discovered that my (male) bard had developed a HIGHER charisma stat than him. So the next time I met the sorcerer... I seduced him. After some tittering from the group and my loudly and hastily clarifying my IRL heterosexuality vs. what my character was doing, the rest of the party had to agree that the narcissistic sex gods would be perfectly compatible.
Some implied sex occurred and we agreed never to speak of it again.

I sometimes play as a female character just because noone in our team does. Once I played as a young doctoress (in a sci-fi setting), and the mafia-godfather guy (also a PC) started romancing me (lol). After a few adventures, we got married and since then, the two characters sometimes appear as NPC-s.

My friend and I play a 4th ed campaign where he's a Fighter and I'm a Warlord. Both are dragonborn. She split a man's head wide open (crit =D) with her great axe and he bought her a drink that night. They're slowly becoming a battle couple.

Way back around the end of 3.5, I once had a character get involved in a "I'll give you whatever you want" test by a god, against his will (giant flaming eyes and promises of power do not scream "good"). In the contest, he joined up with the rest of the party, and saved one member from a Succubus' draining kiss. She fled, but he failed his save against suggestion to accept another kiss. I roleplayed this so that he was heavily attracted to her for the rest of the day, and since he hadn't asked the god for anything specific, he decided to ask about getting to know that succubus. She became an NPC, turned into a human Warlock (deriving her power from her own old demon-self), and joined the group just so she could get revenge against the deity. The suggestion then wore off, and awkwardness and much teasing commenced for the rest of the campaign about the ex-Succubus NPC and my char. :P
