Why do I bother? The loud mouth dwarf mocks and shouts at everything that has an ear, probably hoping to torture them. This is probably why they sent her out to do a man’s job, just couldn’t stand her. I’m not even sure why we are tolerating her. Constantly falling down in the most obvious of traps, fighting everyone and everything, and always trying to prove herself to no one in particular. I don’t get it.
Then there’s the lumbering oaf of a tank, Arneth, who cannot make less noise than an entire Orc and Goblin army while they bicker at each other. Oh, and she likes to fall down into the obvious traps too!
After it was time for everyone to awake, we decided to explore an opening we encountered awhile back but decided to go another route at the time. The doltish dwarf idiotically announced that there might be horses down there. Ha ha! I honestly hope it was for comic relief because… wow. Maybe it’s common knowledge in munchkinland that all goblins keep their horses in a basement like environment?
Anyways, the ranger decided it would be a good idea to announce our presence to the entirety of world as he threw a torch he got from the wall down the stairs into the place we were hoping to sneak into. Wonderful. Because of this public service announcement, the “horses” were waiting in ambush and managed to surround me. I deftly Fey Stepped away and was mocked for “running away”. I swear, these people would do good to have some sort of battle strategy before carelessly charging into the unknown. Like, the cloth wearing wizard should not be in melee.
Once we defeated the gelatinous goo, we further explored the area. For some reason, the only person to have activated a trap, the armor clad human, completely forgot about that and managed to find yet another trap. At this point, it was amusing. The sounds she made were priceless. After we remembered about the traps, we decided to check for them. Our most nimble of rogues, Nixie, actually fell into an already activated trap while searching for others. Really? She should probably find a new profession.
A few traps and corners later, we fought the biggest creature of the area. By ‘we’, I mean me and the half-elf. The others thought it was a good idea to be in random holes. I think I even saw the bow carrying elf jump into one purposefully… At least I hope it was on purpose.
After this, I wanted to just relax and meditate but everyone else thought it would be a good idea to explore an area that literally told us not to go in. What a great idea! We entered to find nothing of interest until another blob-like creature began to attack us. Once the creature was nearly dead, our RANGED ARCHER decided to drop his bow, pull out this melee weapon that I’ve never seen before, and literally CHARGE the blob. I was awestruck at the stupidity of the scene. After his complete and utter failure, we finally killed the thing.
Looking around, I could not see our human tank anywhere until I peered in the water. She was hurt and struggling to stay afloat. Disregarding my negative emotions, I quickly reached down and pulled her out and brought her to safety. Maybe I’m coming around to like these guys. It’s obvious they need me, perhaps one day they’ll come around to realize that too.
