Halfway through, and it's been fun so far. It'll be kind of sad to see it go, really...

Somehow, I got talked into attending GameStorm, a gaming convention up in Vancouver, WA this weekend starting today. I don't know if I'll have anything distinctive on me (I'm not a terribly swagtastic individual), but I might have a tiny Applejack pin I can put somewhere. If you're attending/in the area, feel free to hunt me down while I'm wandering around aimlessly.

Really? I'm first to post, this time? Huh.

Story time, then. Tell us about a time when you sang or acted out a performance check.

Okay, this wasn't quite a perform check, but was close enough...

In a 4.0 adventure we had a tiefling bard... At the start of the game, in the tavern, the player accidentally said a really bad pun. I forget the actual pun, but it was bad enough that we said it should count as using the bard at-will power 'Vicious Mockery', which deals 1d6 + Charisma damage if it hits. ...So we rolled it, and it hit. The commoner only had 1 hp due to being a minion, so died. The bard was arrested, under protests of 'I only said...' This killed one of the two guards who came to arrest him. The other took him to the magistrate.

Meanwhile, I got arrested for 'being indecently dressed' due to having taken off my shirt to prove I was male (which originally was questioned because player/character gender differences always confuse people starting out). As we were in a dwarf town, they thought I was female because a. I did not have a beard and b. I wasn't a bard, as dwarves heard that bards can be girly and that would excuse the lack.

Anyway, I was outside the magistrate's office when the bard came up. I asked him what he was being arrested for. "I only said..." Another guard dead. After that, whenever he started saying that line, we would cover his mouth. He kept on trying to explain himself to the court, so we had to do that a few times.

Yesterday, at our gamestore, it was suggested that I pick a new deity since Helm seemed to hate me with what had happened to us recently (I'll save the details on that one for another time). After a few jokes at my character's expense and me being adamant that I was only going to worship a deity with the light domain, Milil was suggested as my replacement. Upon learned that Milil was the god of poetry and song, everyone joked that I should become the singing cleric. While everyone kept pulling out different suggestions, I jokingly rolled my performance check (I got a grand total of 11 if you were curious) and started singing the gypsy bard song.

Apparently my performance check affected reality because the only time anyone noticed what I was doing was when I messed up the second verse. In the midst of me trying to correct myself, they asked me what I was singing. After I told them the name of the song, they stared at me blankly and then went back to talking about something else.

Shame really, the only time they could have found out that I like MLP and they were too concerned with the raging fire we started and the ash cloud that could kill us coming from the volcano that erupted near us. Oh well, their loss.

At the festival where we were looking for a suitor for our nation's queen, the GM played sections of IRL songs that matched each one's personality as their "performance." My character also made an effort. I played "Won't Back Down" and then "I'm a believer" in the second round.

Confound it all! I just got that song out of my head a few hours ago; now it's gonna be another week before I'm free of it!
It is a great song, but under the circumstances I can't fault their priorities. Fire is pretty distracting.
