I run an open table. If you can make it to a session, that's super-keen. If you miss four runs in a row that's unfortunate but you're not treated any differently than any of the regulars. Last night we saw an unforeseen conseuquence of this laid back policy: the least human party I've ever seen. I don't mean only the people play dwarves, elves and halfling showed up. Rather, I mean that more than half the party were animals. As you might recall Carl and Nick died last run and inexplicably ended up with a pet white ape and grizzly bear respectively. The only other player to show up last night currently plays a dire wolf. The marching order scribbled on my notes reads something like this:
The party also ambushed a completely harmless Oaf (a neutral demi-giant race with silly cartoon-style stupidity) who was trying to find his lost bag of gold. They killed him and found the gold. Poor stupid bastard.
