From the Ashes

The personal blog of a 20-something Haligonian. Lately I have been very interested in MCU, The Hobbit, and my perennial favourite, cat memes. New into my nerdly mix has been me playing Dungeons and Dragons, and with the new edition that has come out, I will be posting my shenanigans as both a player and a DM.

Meet the 3.5 campaign cast!
Penelope Sheppard grew up in Oeble, in the Border Kingdoms of Faerun. Her family ran a rather successful farm, and Penelope knew she was destined for something greater when she felt a hum of power every time she picked up a scythe. After an unfortunate incident involving sheep, farm hands, and lots of death, she knew definitively at the age of 23 that she was favoured by Myrkul, the god of the dead, despite the fact that the god himself was dead.
After a chance encounter with the chaos gnome bard known as Slappy as she was making her escape from town, Penelope followed the bard and his adventuring party to a cave in the Qurth forest. She had arrived too late to meet her musical hero, as she arrived at the cave during the final moments of Slappy’s funeral. She did find kindred spirits in his adventuring party, as their cleric worshipped Myrkul and was eager to reform His church in Faerun.
With the cleric was a war troll, an alienist caster, a wildly beautiful sorcerer, a ninja, and other party members that seemed to come and go in a band of adventurer’s that couldn’t really decide on a name for themselves, but was currently going by Myrkul’s Marauders based on the persuasiveness of the cleric.
Known for being a loose cannon and having a rather large attachment to her keen scythe, Penelope is the cheeriest sort of chaotic evil, and jumps at the chance to send souls to her god, much to the cleric’s chagrin. Despite having devoted none of her spellcasting ability to healing spells, she ironically has the highest Heal skill out of all the Myrkul’s Marauders.

  • DM: So you're going to tell (the dead NPC boyfriend's) parents about his death?
  • Me: I was planning on getting breakfast?
  • Cleric of Myrkul: (meta gaming) Wow, your grief holds no bounds.

Cleric of Myrkul is crapping out on his Search checks, we pop out the phone with YouTube and play U2 song “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”. Cleric gives a death glare.

  • Penelope: (after critting with flesh ripper on the fire giant) Mind if I get a selfie with your damage?
  • Alienist caster: this is like the most evil Oprah ever. You get a flesh ripper, you get a flesh ripper, YOU ALL GET FLESH RIPPERS!
  • DM: there are many thousands of coins (in the red dragon hoard)
  • Player: which is slowly disappearing into the extra-dimensional space that is Marissa's cleavage.

Felicity Smoak and Barry Allen are so adorably awkward, it’s awesome.
