Well, this was certainly an interesting bit! I had this very interesting prompt that turned out to be almost a good short story, all drawing inspiration from my online buddies’ DnD group (which I have to chronicle sometime). So, bouncing off of a prompt reply by u/ABitofKindness, I created the following prompt response over 3 or so posts, as there were character limits.
Done in the span of July 20-23, 2020.
Note: My writing for Reddit writing prompts is different for brevity. While this is a good example of my writing, I often omit backstory and several details to create a concise post. Please look at my other works if you’re looking for my more regular style of writing.

Pre Story Notes
To skip a bunch of visual descriptions, I’ll do what I did in the original thread; quickly show the party and outline who is who:
Left to right:
- Pri the rogue bard,
- Ned the necromancer sorceror
- Melarue the half-elf noble fighter
- Fiona, Ned’s girlfriend
- Marios the pope elf.
- Mance the swashbuckling rogue
- Seijun the rogue monk
- Yorina the alchemist trading cleric
- Nora, Yorina and Marios’ friend.
Got a name to a face now? Good! I’ll let you get going without adieu.
