Here's an ambitious page...

I wonder if this little revelation puts a question to the whole concept of Story Time. Is it possible you could have embellished what was objectively a more mundane sequence of events?

I'm inclined to think all the stories are more legit than not, myself. The tales that come out of tabletop RPGs are the very definition of truth that's stranger than fiction.

Honestly, I think a little embellishment is part of the charm with Story Time.

Not to say we're necessarily fudging numbers where The Great and Powerful Trixie is now taking on sixteen armed guards in a stairwell when the actual event had only two guards. It's the presentation; garnish the story with inspiring prose and detail that turns a fairly ordinary encounter into an exciting one. It's a small embellishment in the same way one would clean up and repaint a house (maybe add some new curtains and a power wall) before sale. The basic house hasn't changed, but wow does it look nicer than before.

You gotta sell it. :D

So it's now Trixie taking on two skilled guards in the cramped stairwell, both armed with MP5 rifles and frag grenades! They got their sights trained on our blue unicorn protagonist because she lost initiative, but Trixie isn't one to back down, concentrating on a spell that'll dazzle and amaze!
