from Sunday's game

In Monsters! Monsters! you draw a card to see what sort o' vile fiend you are playing. We ended up, among other things, with a Black Hobbit jazz saxophonist, a gender-ambiguous Chinese Fox, a winged skeleton Demon, a female Rock Person with a penchant for kidnapping and enslaving paladins, the world's least effective but most pimpin' Warlock and the above gourmand Dragon.

First they burned down the town the adventurers were using as home base.  This I fully expected.  Then they muscled in on the adventurers' source of oil flasks & holy water.  Reasonable.  Then they burned down the nearby city of thousands.

Good times.

    Ah, I remember my first rampant storm of destruction.

    These moments never grow old. Congrats on a great game!

  3. Sorry, first attempt was typing fail.

    Anyway, "female rock person" is that rock music? Or was she an actual igneous American? Or both?

    /I don't know why I'm so curious

  4. Rock Person = "somewhere between the golem of Prague and the everlovin' blue-eyed Thing"

  5. Well they certainly did not lack for ambition.

  6. "Then they burned down the nearby city of thousands"

    It's the only way to be sure... :)

  7. The really impressive part was that the city-destroying fire had nothing to do with the dragon. It was just the result of amazing con artistry on the part of the fox and the warlock, and of course some luck on the die roll to determine the spread of the blaze.

    I am proud to have been a part of the orgy of destruction.
