An old roman 20 sided die made of glass found in a tomb from the 2nd century AD sells for almost $18,000

For $18,000 that thing better roll at least eight XX’s per 4-hour gaming session.

TRENDS MALE ADVENTURERS HATE BUT FEMALE ADVENTURERS LOVE

Deathcut Armor - Guys like a girl to look soft and touchable, not like we would receive 1d10+CHA necrotic damage if we tried to snuggle up.

Putting a Cloaked Weapon enchantment on your light blade - Makes us wonder, what else are you trying to hide from us? Your blade should be natural-looking.

Diadem of Acuity - We hate feeling like you’re constantly scrutinizing us.

Goblin Stompers - Being able to shift when an attack misses you? You may think that playing hard-to-get is cute, but it’s actually just frustrating for us!

A Rimefire Griffon mount - Maybe we’re just old-fashioned, but it can be a real blow to a dude’s ego when a girl has a more exotic mount than he does.

Speaking Abyssal in bed - This one’s just scary as fuck, to be honest.

you finally sneak into the dragon’s cave and find his treasure chest. you open it and there is just a macaroni drawing by the dragon’s son.

The idea of this haunts me.

REBLOGGED 4 U MY FELLOW D&D LADIES

I recently decided to write/run a dragon-centric campaign, and as such have resigned myself to this fate for the next several months, possibly years.

OH HEY GUYS GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS
THAT’S RIGHT, IT’S TIME FOR A PACIFIC RIM/D&D AU:
Hermann is a Wizard – he spends all his spare time studying the systems of natural laws so he can expand his compendium of carefully-crafted spells, which he executes with precision.
Newt is a Sorcerer – his innate skills are substantial, but no match for the uncontainable Wild magic he seeks to wield. (His battle cry is probably “Oops!”)
The martial fighters in the party don’t think much of them until 5th level, when they’re like, “Oh, did you need that monster banished to its native plane of existence? Bam, done, you’re all welcome, and uh, don’t worry about your eyebrows, Raleigh, they’ll grow back. Probably.”

I did my best to make this slideshow amusing, but also genuinely informative for people who were curious about D&D.

If you enjoy this slideshow, you may also enjoy my two previous slideshows, and you should also check out my D&D tag.

If you enjoyed this slideshow and you ship Johnlock, you might want to read On The Ice, which goes into greater detail about how an actual gaming session proceeds, and also features plenty of smut.

I was on NW Nerdcast!

Would you like to hear me talk about…my first time?

(That is, my first time playing D&D?)

Then hop on over to the NW Nerdcast blog and download Episode Four! The host identifies me by some weird, other name which seemed to my parents like a good idea at the time. Just ignore that.

And if you’re a history buff, check out this episode of the Star-Trek-and-sex-toys podcast Look At His Butt from way back in 2008, where I went by Echo and discussed my Star Trek fandom activities.

Hope you enjoy!

euglossia-watsonia asked: OH MY GOD I am very pleased that you have a tumblr. Your fics are amazing! On The Ice is one of my all time faves.

Thank you, darling! Since I posted On The Ice, I’ve seen fantasy/medieval Sherlock fanart popping up — not related to my fic, but just other peeps who placed the characters in that sort of universe. I think the idea of John as a Paladin (or Cleric) and Sherlock as a Bard (or Sorcerer) is mind-bogglingly awesome, but that’s probably because I’m a nerd.

Anyway, here’s one of my favorites, by Xeora on DeviantArt. It’s not an illustration for On The Ice, but it could be.
