Worst Rogue Ever - Part I

Worst Rogue Ever - Part I

Who’s ready for the weekend?! I know I’m looking forward to some Dungeons & Dragons adventuring this weekend. Perhaps one day I’ll share one of my own adventures or misadventure more likely. For now though, I have a story about a terribly bad rogue, and yes, there are more stories to follow this one as he was really quite awful at his job.

For some background on these short stories, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans. As for you Positivity Camp fans, there will be a new one next week. It’s already written, so it’s a guarantee ;)

Positivity Camp Part XXXIV

Positivity Camp Part XXXIV

Hello! It’s the news you’ve been waiting for! Positivity Camp is back! I hit a bit of a slump with what to do with Daniel and all, but I’m back and have the next three Positivity Camps done! Next week will be another random Dungeons & Dragons misadventure story as I work on mixing it up each week, but hey, at least after that you’ll have some confirmed camp stories to look forward to ;)

If you’re new, Positivity Camp is a short…ha…ha….story…hahahahahaha… Ah, well. It was supposed to be a short 3-4 blog story that has evolved into a much longer piece. As you can see by the title, it is now up to number 34 and it is still going. What can I say? The story needed fleshed out more and I couldn’t end it in three blogs. So, if you’re looking for a fun read on a twisted tale about a camp that bans the use of negative sounding words and the effect it has on its campers, then feel free to check it out from the beginning. Enjoy!


Sometimes, The Mighty Fall

Sometimes, The Mighty Fall

Do you ever have someone bail on you due to crazy things like family, work, or some other event? Well, this week’s story is about what can happen when a group of adventurers leaves a friend behind. In the case of this story, it’s about what happens when a group leaves a heavy hitter behind.

I’m getting ahead of myself! If you’re new to the blog, welcome! I switch back and forth between standalone short tales of D&D campaigns and the ongoing story of Positivity Camp - a tale of a terrible camp that puts restrictions on words they deem too negative and the struggle of Daniel and Wendy as they fight to shut it down.

For some background on these short stories, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans or check out Positivity Camp. Next week will continue with Daniel’s attempt at escaping the camp.

Backstory for this week’s short tale: In this particular party, there was a wizard (Alanari Light Bringer), a Fighter, a barbarian, and a super OP samurai half-orc (created by a player who had been playing D&D since the 80’s and knew how to make OP characters that were fully within the rules). Only Alanari and the OP samurai could deal heavy damage. (The samurai had an AC of 30. To put that into perspective, an AC of 24-25 was considered good. It took bosses luck to be able to hit the guy. On top of that, the samurai could deal an average of 14-15 damage a turn, which was unreal for simply hitting something. He also carried a weapon with a perk that syphoned life from enemies it hit.) Alanari did not join his companions on the following quest due to...scheduling complications (If a person couldn’t make it to a gaming session, their character couldn’t participate).


Hodor & Dannok

Ready to make your day even better? I’m diving back into the misadventures of Hodor the Barbarian. This short story once again comes from the Dungeons & Dragons realm. (For some background on these short stories, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans, and for a quick refresher, check out my blog Hodor VS Illusion.)

Next week will continue with more from Positivity Camp. Will the campers successfully sneak out of House Joy?  

As a disclaimer, I did not name Hodor. Once again, that was all on Billy.

Positivity Camp Part XXXII

Positivity Camp Part XXXII

Friday is back again and I've brought a story along with it! Well, it's a continuation of a story, but that still counts, right? Regardless, here is the next chapter of Positivity Camp!

Next Friday I'll have another story about the incredibly strong but incredibly dull witted Hodor (I seriously did not name him that!), a Dungeons & Dragons short story. To learn more of what that is about, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans.


Hodor VS Illusion

Hodor VS Illusion

Who’s ready for the weekend?! I know I am! This week is another short story from the Dungeons & Dragons realm. (For some background on these short stories, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans.) As for you Positivity Camp fans, there will be a new one next week.  

For this short story, there is a little bit of background needed. The character this one is about is named Hodor. He is a barbarian with some serious strength, but his intelligence is not so good. Basically, everything this character does involves a random skill check. This is just one of the many misadventures of the barbarian known as Hodor.

Also, as a disclaimer, I DID NOT NAME THIS CHARACTER! Too soon, Billy. Too soon. (Billy being the one who did name this character.)

Positivity Camp Part XXXI

Positivity Camp Part XXXI

It’s FRIDAY!!! I know I’m excited about that! Hopefully you are having an awesome day or will be soon. This week we are back to more woe and misery at Positivity Camp as the campers are sent to their cabins without s’mores. How cruel is that?

Next week will be another random Dungeons & Dragons or D20 campaign story of great success or great failure. To learn more of what that is about, check out my blog Role-Playing Shenanigans.


Barbarian vs Door

Barbarian vs Door

Hello and happy Friday! Are you ready for another stand-alone story from the real of Dungeons & Dragons? Then this is the blog for you! I alternate between stand-alone stories from D&D and d20 players and a short story called Positivity Camp. For you fans of the second, it’ll be back next week.

Teaser: Night has fallen on the camp and Daniel isn’t tired. Will he be successful in sneaking his fellow campers out of House Joy’s cabin, or will they be caught and subjected to more disturbing positivity videos?

Also, the photo is of a completely random hamster. Photo courtesy Hossam M. Omar.


Positivity Camp Part XXX

Who’s ready for more adventures from Daniel and Wendy? Well, mostly just Daniel as Wendy is still absent…

If you’re new to the blog, welcome! While you are more than welcome to read the story below, I should warn you it may not make sense unless you go back to the beginning. What started out as a ‘short story’ has become a main staple of this blog. The story below is one of woe as campers are trapped at a camp that bans words that are considered negative. Daniel and Wendy battle against the counselors, trying to defeat them without breaking the rules.

Next week will be back to more random misadventures in different Dungeons & Dragons campaigns or D20 tabletop games. Why do I share these? Because the hilarious fails of others and occasional epic wins are both fun and entertaining both to write and to read :) Until next week, here is the next part of Positivity Camp!

 


Cool, Calm, and Collected

Cool, Calm, and Collected

Things are finally returning to normal around here. I have a lot of books I want to craft, but there’s no rush to do them. It’s been nice having a slower week. I did complete five books this week, and I’m working on a new display case for them. I’ll post photos soon to Twitter, Facebook, and Etsy (for the ones that are for sale).

You know what time it is now…short story time! I hope you enjoy this week’s tale :)
