So in my custom tabletop CoC game, I feature several of the cast from my Heather and Janus Fairytale settings. One of these is Maddie, Elizabeth’s sister. She helped co-manage a tavern by the name of The Nosy Ram, named after Fluff. She was a bit of a source of information for the players, who often visited her establishment.
One of her favorite things to do was to grab a chair and sit with the players, often flipping the chair and sitting backwards on it. A few of them found this hilarious, and the players associated this posture with the character. They also dubbed this after the famous “Riker Maneuver”, in which Will Riker sweeps his leg to it over a chair. So I decided to quickly draw this out for them.
One thing’s for sure; Janus and Heather have a pretty eccentric aunt. Pretty sure she makes Elizabeth facepalm quite a bit, too.
So I’ve not really told or shared my adventures that I’ve been playing with Pathfinder, but I recently started playing The Fally of Plaguestone, an official 2e module that my DM’s friend decided to run. I decided to use the character I made after Yorina’s mom, which clashes but is hilarious with everyone else’s characters. I’m frequently called “The Pope” (gee, I wonder why?) and kind of had a bit of bad luck with some bad rolls. Otherwise, still in one piece and having fun so far.
So the last game we had a big brawl in a bar this evening, and me and my friend decided to clobber a drunk farmer who was starting trouble. The farmer took a chair, called Marios a little lady and whacked Astrian over the head with it. In return, we both whacked him unconscious, before finding out our dwarven host died from poisoning. The DM’s friend mentioned that the bard was playing “banjo music” during this fight, and even requested that I draw this into the final piece. So I obliged and added him. As much as I don’t like things from where I live, I do think this song is extremely fitting to the scene, and can fully imagine it playing while the brawl plays.
What happens next? We’ll find out. It looks like it’ll be quite awhile, though.
