"Tell a Story: About a Tradition"

Even if we have Raxon, we're still having one.

Tradition is like fruitcake, it keeps getting served no matter how stale it is. And nothing you can do aside from bringing in a flamethrower can get rid of it.

Tell a story about a tradition your group, or individual members of the group had at your games. For good or ill, for hilarity or annoyance. For pizza or for tacos.

Share your joy/pain with the rest of us.

"Traditions"

Well, whenever we're playing Seventh Sea and someone's dice start repeatedly exploding, someone is bound to suggest that they turn into a dragon. (something something, old game with a character with dragon-based powers, something something dice roll in the hundreds and he spontaneously turned into a dragon)

And the curse/blessing of the Pinkie Pie (one dude has a dice box with pinkie pie on it, and he's got absurd luck. Everyone is very superstitious about it.)

Hmm... Playing one's character theme music whenever a suitably awesome fight scene is going on probably counts...

For the most part, the memes are individual to the game, though.

"Blames Kanti"

This evolved more into a meme between the group I play with than a tradition, to the point we have a quick command button for it on roll20 already.

The story of it origins for this come from this young elf ranger, who has... The most interesting luck regarding his arrows. He sometimes hits the impossible, he sometimes kill the unkillabe, he sometimes sets on fire the godess we are trying to protect, or shoot to the face to the monk with anger issues, or goes all Social movement in front of the peopl who are more than able to kill us, or tries to sleep with the previously named godess and her only immortal follower after "going on a break" with his actual girlfriend back home... And tried to do it with a couple enemies that lead to the death of a Prince who was also teh Chosen One from teh God of Death and member of the party... Between many other mostly "minor" (with that I mean I can't remember) mistakes.

So now, whenever shit goes south in anything or doesn't goes as planned, we just say "*Blames Kanti*"

At this point your DM should just include him into your Pantheon. I can see at least a couple of incredible fun capaigns around that from over here.

None of our traditions are particularly original. Screaming "RULES OF NATURE!" while fighting colossal enemies is a classic, though.

"Traditions"

Not sure if this falls more under a meme or not but whenever we get bored or mad at someone/thing or we're confused about the best thing to do in a fight my friend Mike turns to me and says "Isaiah punch it in the face". This started when we first tried out the game before knowing about the rules(we thought that a twenty-die was used for everything and we didn't really understand AC,to the point where the only difference in damage from a bow to a sword was how well you rolled) where I was a fighter and as shown in the parenthesis it meant I could just as easily use my hands. After my sword broke on and ungodly powerful old man my brother quickly designed when it rotated into his DM turn we decided to have me run at Mike then him kick me up while I jumped off his leg so I could land on his face with my fist,thus breaking my gauntlet and his nose. Due to Mike afterwards constantly suggesting punching it in the face-even when referring to a puzzle later- I've played monks the other two games we played,the time we tried playing 3.5 also while thinking you only use a twenty sided die and currently now that we actually have the rule books and real dice instead of the python code I made. Wow this comment was long winded tell me off I should edit it down a bit.

"Traditions"

Ok, so, in my gaming group, we play a system called "Dungeon World". This system is like a VERY simplified version of DnD. Everything runs on 2d6 (save for damage rolls) and can naturally be a little lax on the roleplay, due to the oversimplification. This leads to various humorous situations in which violence is the only option, due to it being the simplest.

And thus, when I GM, I try to throw some mind benders in there.

For instance, a bounty was placed on an ancient treasure located in this old ruin. Cliched, I know. However, the group of adventurers were wary of any tricks I might play, so they decided to madly dash forward in a fury when they heard a loud screeching noise rapidly approaching from the darkness, deafening them. In their mad dash, they never suspected that it could be a whole lot of everyone's favorite cave dwelling flying rats.

And so, whenever I give an epic buildup to a fight, they look at me before I announce what they see, and all say one thing.

"Bats."

Also, long time follower of this story! I love your storytelling and adaptational humor! Nice work as usual, DragonTrainer!

Every time the party asks what it looks like inside a bar, tavern, or inn the description always includes two hooded figures in the back corner, who when approached reveal themselves to be a part of NEEBLA, the North-Eastern Elves Boys Love Association. Additionally there is usually a woman described as looking like a lesbian, and talking to her typically ends with the nearest party member put under a hold person spell for a good 8 hours. In combat, if someone gets knocked out after charging in, they typically feel like they need to prove themselves in combat against a pride of lions, due to the first situation we had like happening when someone much faster than the rest of the party charged 5 lions alone and lost an arm and a leg in the ensuing mauling.
