Strolen: Walking down a Mountain Path
« on: September 22, 2012, 12:50:38 AM »
So there I was, walking down a mountain path on the edge of a sheer drop when I heard the gutteral singing echoing through the area. After I dodged the small avalanche it created I could make out the following:


Murometz: There once was a dwarf named Mourn
Murometz: Who insisted he was never actually born
Murometz: But instead was undead
Murometz: And not right in the head
Murometz: Yet still to the Dwarves Guild was sworn

Murometz: There once was a Dwarf named Mourn,
Murometz: who with-all-his-might blew Grymn's Horn.
Murometz: Not a sound was heard at all, not in the cave not in the hall,
Murometz: but thus Mourn's silent-fart spell was born.


Murometz: There once was a demon named Mourn
Murometz: who famously exclaimed while nibbling corn
Murometz: "Summon me you still may, perhaps even get your way,
Murometz: but i demand rolls-in-the-hay in return"


Following the carefully edited sounds of the limericks I worked my way to the Dwarven Guild hall. After few drinks of their finest I forgot much of what happened. Upon awakening the next morning I found that I had pledged myself to their Guild, got a tattoo of a dwarven hammer on my right arm and apparently lost two or three fights.


So off I go aquesting!

Welcome to the challenge, beardless one. The path is arduous but the rewards are great! Be implacable as granite and keen as steel, and you will perservere.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

I have chose Grothar Rockfury as my Guild name. It has quite a history with me after all. I see my posts using that name going back all the way to 1996 when I ran a PBeM on the interwebs.

1. Write 3 subs (1 stub is allowed to count as 1 sub for this Quest. But only 1 stub allowed, 2 must be subs) on anything Dwarven related
2. Start 1 Dwarven-related topic in Forums for general discussion/discourse (hey, it may lead to another sub for you!)
3. Read, vote, and comment on, 3 Dwarven-related submissions by others (non-member subs allowed. If it don't smell Dwarven, let 'em have it! If it feels Dwarven, invite them to join our guild!)

Had a stall in my quest to do some more graphics. Made a Guilds banner and working on the dwarven and Strolenati one. Muro has a day respite to try and catch up!

1 stub credit for the dwarven graphic that I am not too ashamed to take, and finally put in my first sub that is skirting the 3.25 mark. :) It took me long enough but a win is a win!!!

One more sub to go till dwarven nirvana!

Due to the overwhelming approval of my most recent purely dwarven submission I am able to finally claim that which I sought after for so long. My dwarven blood runs thick and I am proud to finally be a full member of the Dwarven Guild!!
