Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Thanks for inviting me, Chris.  I'm really looking forward to it.   What's the game, what do you need, what are the house rules?

Greg settles into a chair, looking around the room, basking in the glow of  the impending game.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Cassander turns his chair around and sits down, leaning forward on the chair back.  "My first names Greek, even though I'm not.  Wierd parents.  I know it sounds like a girls name but it's really the guy version of Cassandra.  You can just call me Caz.  Glad you're joining us Greg.  Hey. We have Mountain Dew."  Cassander helped himself to a cup of the drink and took a sip.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Now that I think about it, Cassander, it makes perfect sense.   Still very cool, though.    My name is pretty mundane, by comparison.  It was kind of a hand-me-down from an aunt whose son Greg turned out to be born as her daughter Lisa. 
He grins.
My mother was stuck for a name for various reasons, and asked "Hey, JoAnne, if you're not using that name, can I grab it?"   The rest as they say, is history.

Also, I have to say that I'm gratified to see there are still fans of Mountain Dew, nectar of the gods, elixer of life (or at least gaming).  I've been drinking the stuff since I was six and haven't slowed down since.

"Cassander, that means 'brother of heroes' doesn't it? You planning to be that in the game?" Dan says, happily leaning back on his chair.

I hope that we don't have to play characters based on our names!   I'm not sure, but I think "Greg" either means "talkative" or "like a monk".   Both of which are true enough in real life, so I'd just as soon avoid them here.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Cassander gives Dan a feigned shocked expression.  "How can you game without the Dew?  It's like an unwritten law."  He raises one hand as if quoting a regulation.  "When thou has pen and paper upon which thy character resides and before thou dice rollest, thou will partake of the Dew lest thy dice roll poorly."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
"Acutally, Greg means watchful and vigilant in Greek" he said, surprisingly knowledgeable about this. "As for dew, I really prefer water"

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Well, it's ALL Greek to me.   Perhaps I wasn't vigilant enough after all, I missed that meaning.

He grins.

And as far as water vs. Dew, I can only paraphrase the quote:
"You're offering my water?  I said I was thirsty, not dirty."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Dan gives a counter-grin. "For things other than water I can only quote Idiocracy:

Brawndo's got what plants crave!
What is that?
It's got electrolytes!
What are electrolytes?
I dunno... but they're what plants crave!"

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
John chuckled at the group, if they were this livly now he'd hate to see what happened when they were up on Mountain Dew "You all can have the Dew, I brought some Pepsi for myself."

He paused too look over at the hat in question "Dude... if you make any bigger you can use it for hide or disguies checks..." he said with a shake of his head and a look on his face that suggested he was barely holding back from laughing.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
He looked in thought from that random piece. "Hmm, if I add more feathers to each side and make a pulley system, I can get the hat to fly!" He said, and promptly reached for the rubber.

John raised a hand to say something and opened his mouth to speak, closed his mouth again and shook his head. "Why do I get the feeling we have a Gnome machinist with us..."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
"I'm a human bard, not a gnome" He said in an annoyed tone. He did so hate gnomes and dwarves. Maybe he'd get to kick a few when the game starts?

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
John nodded sagely "Hmm, human bard... maybe you could make a native american headdress, lots of feathers and it would be really big, especially if you threw some gryphon slash great eagle feathers on it too.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
"Didn't I just say that like a few seconds ago? Enough feathers for wings, like those norse helmet things. Except more like a pimp hat" Dan suddenly imagines a Norse Pimp and shudders.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
John shudders as well at the thought, but continues on the hat "You were saying a lot of feathers on the hat. I was saying make a hat out of nothing but feathers."

"Make sure to include a strap if you do that, otherwise, it could end up flying away."

Sarah grabs a glass of Dew.

"That would be itchy and useless, as well as tacky" He replied, wiping off rubber giblets from the paper.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
John actually burst out laughing at the comment that a headdress would be tacky while a viking helm with wings the size of an eagle would not. "Hoo, I needed that. Good luck with your hat man, I'd just suggest you make it small enough for it to fit through a door otherwise you'll have to take it off when preforming inside or going in a dungeon." He patted his character sheet which lay face down on the table "I've got mine drawn but I'd want to wait until we start to show it."

"Or we might have to start using it like a car rack, storing our travelling gear on top of it." Cassander added, with a grin.  "Or it could be used as the top of a crude shelter.  We could turn it over and use it as a boat if we need to cross water.  The possibilities are endless."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Hmmmm,  "A Bard Named Slickback".   Be sure to take Tower Shield proficiency, so you can get the best use of that hat. 

Greg smiles.

"Haha, nice. Maybe I could attach swords to the edges and attack by twirling?" He laughed at this, and thought about how it might be useful for surrounding attackers.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Yes, your hat would certainly be "brimming" with possibilities.

Greg nods, very deadpan.

He continues to get out gaming books and such.

As Christopher makes his final preparations and listens to the conversation, he adds "Do you guys like the candles? I noticed them at a old antiques place and thought they were pretty neat"

He gestures towards the two silver dragons who look like they are breathing out candle light.

"Yeah, they're cool. I like all those statues of dragons you see in the shop windows, got a few myself" He leant back a bit further.
