If you've played Dragonlance and you hear the Kender in your party say "Oops."

No, never played Dragonlance (and I don't know what a Kender is). What is it? :?

But "Oops..." Well... that's never good. :twisted:

Oh dear.... yes, I had a feeling that kender were somewhat alike to halflings, insofar as picking locks, defeating traps and "borrowing" other people's stuff goes. :lol:

It's their immunity to fear and overzealous curiosity that is the main problem! :lol:

Even More Favourite D&D Last Words

Fighting a four armed troll can be certain death...

(We played D&D last night... and that troll reduced me to -5 HP... though the Paladin did Lay on Hands, brought me up to 5, then the Cleric healed me for another 15)...

Even Yet MORE Favourite D&D Last Words

31. "Turbolaser artillery? They couldn't hit the broadside of a Star Destroyer from this dist-"

32. "What do you mean, that was the baby dragon we just killed? Where are the parents?"

33. "Nah, it can't be him. I'm sure there's lotsa smelly barbarians named 'Thor.' "

34. "The vampire can't hurt me. I'm holding up my holy symbol to drive him away."

35. "Yeah, right. It's a gas spore. Just hold your breath when you kill it, that's all."

36. "Well, if I remember correctly, the maximum amount of damage from falling any distance is 20 D6, and I've got 180 hit points, so I jump off the cliff to get away from the monsters, and I'll still have at least 60 hit points when I land!"

37. "Boy, it's a good thing you forgot about all those gold pieces I was carrying in my backpack when I jumped that crevice!"

38. "A fire elemental? Excellent! I take out my pack of marshmallows and roast 'em over it."

39. "He wouldn't do that. He just likes shaking a lot of dice around to psych us out."

40. "To hell with listening at the door! I just rip it open!"

In my previous campaign I ran in my D&D world, during the Age of Exploration, early on in the game, I mentioned the party seeing a spherical thing, with eye stalks floating above the ground, near the canyon path they had to cross. My wife, the only one among the players, who is super familiar with D&D was like, "We have got to hide! Now! That thing is bad news!" Now normally I strongly disapprove of meta gaming (having outside knowledge, your character would not be familiar with) - but I chuckled, because it was merely a gas spore, but they were all super panicked based on my wife's reaction. :lol:

My last campaign, once again, the party's wizard was not able to play, so I had him abducted by the NPC - when the party got to a door with magical runes on it and couldn't figure out to decipher it - the dwarf touched the door and got his soul trapped in a jar. So he was forced to play a captive NPC for awhile, until the party was able to free his soul from it's binding. :lol:

:lol: Gas spore = beholder? Not necessarily. ;)

Uh-oh... first rule of adventuring: never touch unfamiliar glowing runes. :lol:

Gas Spores look exactly like Beholders. That's the trick of them.

Eh? Gas spores (from that illustration, anyway) don't have a big mouth full of sharp teeth... ;)

That is the main difference... Though, there are some drawn with a mouth...

But generally speaking, there's no mouth and this is how they look in 5th edition (so it's more clear that it's not eye stalks at the top, but fungus, but impossible to really tell at a distance)...
