Yikes. Nat ones are never good news. :shock: Firing a crossbow into his own foot? OW! :? That's one great way to break your own foot. :shock:

I was part of a group once that needed an extra player for a night or two, so we advertised for one. The one we got was a munchkin. :( His character gloried in the name of Stan the Indestructible because he had insanely magical armour that protected him from physical damage, magical damage, and poison. He figured - what does it matter that I'm using a rusty dagger that only does 3 damage, tops, if no-one can hurt me! :evil: Not surprisingly, the rest of us (especially the DM) hated him. :evil:

After a couple of hours, the DM finally had enough. Stan was standing at the bottom of a mountain, looking up at the evil wizard on top. With many a mwa-ha-ha and a twirling of moustaches, the evil wizard pressed the plunger on his magical equivalent of TNT (home-brew, don't ask), and collapsed the mountain on top of Stan. :twisted: In this home-brew, 0 is still barely conscious and -10 is still dead. So Stan poked his head out from under the rubble, saying "I have -9 HPs! I'm still alive!" :D

...and then, as a final act of evilness, the falling evil wizard threw an enraged tomcat at Stan, which clawed his face for damage of 2 HP. :twisted:

Scratch one munchkin! :twisted:

That right there is a HILARIOUS visual.

We had a regular playing in a D&D campaign years ago, who did that. Built his character for maximum damage/to hit ratio. Back in the days of 2nd Edition, there were kits you could add to a class. So said person made an Elf Blade Singer. So back then, Elves had +1 with longswords (and bows). As a blade singer, it was an additional like +2 or +3. And of course, the first magic +1 longsword we find, he demands to take. I know I mentioned it before, somewhere (maybe even in this thread?) about having the lack of artist abilities - and using Kenzer's "Knights of the Dinner Table" panels to make my own - but in there, I think it mentions said player. We had another player, who did the same thing - for every game - whether it was Neverwinter Nights, MechWarriors, or D&D (I know his is in there - as the one with the bracers) - this is the last one (I think), but it links all the previous ones: http://neverendingnights.com/archives/1014

It's a literal "documentation" of how our D&D games were week to week...

My own drawings, based on our D&D games back then can be found on the Neverending Nights' facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Neverending ... 3792121866

I have been drawing the "face" those characters are based off for a long time. I learned from Farside, which was one of the first comics I tried to mimic (because the art was pretty simple). Back in High School, I used to do similar art, that I called "The Wallgroup" based on myself and my high school friends, because we literally claimed a wall in the hallway as ours, and hung out there during breaks and lunch, and it's where we'd meet before and after school (I should dig up the mug I gave everyone for Christmas way back when, with that art on it). It evolved into this character I draw of myself all the time (ironically, just drew it today on someone's card for their 15th anniversary working at my job).

I should explain some of the photos... because out of context they sort of lose their meaning... so continuing...

In this one, the druid (or wizard?) sent their familiar, a cat, to try and listen to the bad guy... For some reason I can't remember, I drew the bag guy as Cartman from Southpark

This is the generic joke, Rainyn was played by Paul... and the joke of "coming out of the closet"....
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B24AB9B

During one of our adventures we met Mind Flayers, and... it didn't go well...

Critical 1 failure... again... https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AE19F27

This one is about our friend Jeremy, who played a Paladin. He was very reclusive. Never went out on dates or anything. Went on a dating site and finally got a date. So we played once without him... The other character was a swashbuckler, played by Chad. The Swashbuckler in the game is a "Lady's Man"...

During an Oriental Adventures campaign we found a small village with three huts... or... hutts?
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5ADB80F2

Generic pun - We found evidence of Lizard people (and in San Diego, as I am sure as other places that touch borders with Mexico), there's a sign about beware of people running across the freeway that resembles this (but has a whole family)...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AF50F4A

Generic pun - during a Yuan-ti encounter we find a pyramid, which I drew to look like a 4 sided dice (D4)...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AD83FAE

Generic pun - he wanted to find a Roc (which is a giant eagle like creature; think The Hobbit)...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AE01374

Generic pun - my wife and I worked at a sunglass company called Dragon; and it turns out the gem my wife's character needed was rumored to be guarded by a dragon...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5ADEE52A

Generic pun - we needed to start a revolution. There's a place in Mexico called "Revolution" (think tons of tequila and drunk people)...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5ADFEF25

Generic pun - spoofing Playboy...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AF67680

Found a magical helmet...?
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AEF368D

When we changed from 2nd to 3rd Edition, and suddenly some skills couldn't be done...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B220DE8

Paul (our DM) had a HORRIBLE knack for giving characters names that sounded too much like something else...
This one was a Dwarf he named "Gaydar" (so we joked "He has a GAY raDAR?")
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B2283DF

Here's a few others...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AEAD4AC
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B2267D2

This has to do with one of those characters, who we tricked into taking a cursed chest...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AE0EB00

Christi played our Cleric; a Cleric of the God, Eth (who was a forgotten God)... she had a stone in her palm that was supposedly connected to the god, if I remember correctly... and the joke is that the character is Paul's character, Rainyn (stuck on the Palm Pilot where Paul used to keep his character)...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B242165

A nod to EverQuest, an MMO we all used to play...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AF37CF8
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5B26C91A

Paul hated the Avenger, Hawkeye...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AE8A873

One of our haunted adventures... actually tried to draw something creepy...
https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5AE05F8D

Our friend Adam used to strike a pose, where we all called him, "Big Gay Adam" (and the wife even made a calendar, because she had enough photos of him in said pose). This is the pose when he joined our campaign with his character...

:lol: The "pie-rat" skewering a cherry on his tiny cutlass, and using a fork as the mast for his sail. ;) Very cute!

By the way, even though I can reply to posts, suddenly I can't start a thread of my own. :? Ever time I try to start one, I get this:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Incorrect string value: '\xEF\xBB\xBF\x0A\x0A[...' for column 'post_text' at row 1 [1366]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.
That's not the first time I've seen this, either. :( What's going on?

Hmm, it's about 4 hours later and I can post a new thread again. :) But still... any idea what the issue could be?

Probably something on the host side (our provider that we use - Arvixe).
