One of the last bits of art from my first tabletop campaign. I actually did start this sometime in December of 2019, but with pandemic, the group quitting their play sessions and such, I never got around to finishing it. This night was the exception; while on voice chat with the ninja rogue from that same group, I worked on finally finishing this.
The journey’s been long over and it’s an interesting place to be 1 and some years later, but happy hunting, wherever your adventures will take you.
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.
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.
