can some one please translate what he says in the first speech bubble
We were cooks for 10 years and been in 300 resturaunts. Back then, we'd get fired for getting into fights.
TONIGHT! WE DINE! IN HELL!
Meh, the baratie is on the edge of the grandline. So more like they dine at charon's place.
Judging by the way they're talking, it sounds pretty hellish to me.
Does Paddy have some accent that I am incapable of recognizing, or is he just talking like a little kid with a speech impediment?
Perhaps he's just incapable of closing his mouth? I like to read his lines imagining a guy trying to speak with his mouth wide open facing into a strong wind, if that helps.
I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be Elmer Fudd.
I claim it. Anybody who's tried 5th Edition: Tell your stories!
Well, for quite a while, I've been part of a play test/5th ed. campaign (we transitioned as soon as the PHB came out). Honestly, the people who game with me are.... insane. For instance, a Kender who was apparently walking around with a dead dwarf in her pockets. Who proceded to use the corpse to distract a slime. Or Pit-Jumping Saete, who decided to jump down a pit she couldn't see the bottom of, and ended up breaking her legs and sitting out most of a fight. And who I nearly killed by pulling on a rope REALLY hard (STR 20, +2 in athletics), and the time when I effectively wrestled a god and won. using the same character. at level THREE!
That's not the kind of thing that you can just mention. "Oh, got Jesus in a choke hold." You've won the prize: your reward? Elaboration.
Really, I don't think it would be that hard to get Jesus in a chokehold; I can't see him resisting. He'd forgive & make you repent, is all.
...it all makes sense now; Jesus was a Diplomancer.
Still want that story, though.
My group initially started with the playtest of fifth then sorta fell back to pathfinder, when the starter box came out (and now the phb) we decided to give it another go.
It went really well, we kept picking some of the toughest fights well before we should have. For instance we ignored the goblin camp and instead picked a fight with mercenaries. I was playing the fighter, I was knocked out and thanks to the cleric got back up 3 times in one fight. At low level that happened a lot. Later on when we gained a couple of levels and were level 3 I could take a beating and thanks to armor and shields I became a walking battle turtle.
We beat the dragon in the adventure at level 4 just barely, although it did fall on our sorcerer and cleric and almost kill them. Also our halfling rouge spent most of the game playing the most dangerous game of pika-boo I have ever seen. Mostly stab and hide.
We have built out characters from the PHB and this saturday will begin our first game from the official version, our current group is made of a tiefling bard entertainer, half elf sorcerer sage, dragon born barbarian outlander (plays bagpipes), and wood elf monk outlander (I play the flute the kind satyres play) we might end up forming a band, seeing as the only one without proficiency in an instrument still has a really nice charisma score.
A panpipe-playing Monk and a bagpipe-playing Barbarian? Excellent.
