Said it before and I'll say it again. One of these days I wanna carry around a bag of Googly eyes and just make the world a funnier place
@Midnite St0rm, this is one of those things you really want to do, but end up not doing it (or at least take a really long time to actually do it)
@Midnite St0rm, story time! I was playing D&D with a bunch of friends, and one of them was new to the game. He played the character Dave the Rogue. Now, Dave ended up being given a magic staff of randomness (similar to the Wabbajack for those of you familiar with Skyrim). He wanted to find out exactly what it did, so he decided to use it on the nearest thing he could find: a rock.
Our DM chuckles, rolls some dice and says “You’ve blinded the rock.” This was met with laughter by the party, especially Dave. His character wasn’t that intelligent, So he says “If I blinded the rock, it must be alive!” So he asks the DM if he can keep it as a pet rock, and that’s the story of how Larry the Pet Rock became our newest party member (part 2 to follow shortly)
@HFSA, eventually Dave grew to love Larry. He got some medieval versions of googly eyes to give Larry some character.
Now, at some point in a later session we were trying to break into a wizard’s study in a castle. Dave decided to check for traps by throwing Larry through the window to the study. Turns out there was a magic trap indeed, because Larry was instantly vaporized into a pile of ash.
Dave started crying, so much so that he was too distracted to focus on the mission at hand, so we left him weeping over a pile of ash, which he consequently put into a pouch to carry Larry’s memory with him. (Part 3 to follow)
@HFSA, towards the end of the session, our Druid gets real quiet for a bit, and we ask him what’s up. He says, in a low voice... “I know the spell ‘Reincarnation’...” long story short, our DM lets Larry get resurrected by our Druid. He was resurrected as a Gnome Barbarian. A blind gnome barbarian. With enchanted Giant-àss googly eyes instead of real eyes that lets him use blindsight.
@HFSA, oh, and there’s a part 4. Almost forgot. This is how it actually applies to your original comment lol. Larry the Barbarian died valiantly. Well, not so valiantly. We sacrificed him to hungry plants. But in his memory, a party member gave the guy who plays Dave a real rock with googly eyes. This inspired him to go on Amazon and purchase 700 googly eyes, which he proceeded to hand out to everyone in our D&D group, and his friends outside the nerd groups too. We all decided to put them on our baseball caps, and now all over the university campus we see people with googly eyes on their hats, and we immediately know where they got them. He’s even started putting them on posters and stuff around campus to freak people out. It’s getting out of hand, and it’s great. Anyways. That’s the end of my story.
@HFSA, 110284820271019/10 definitely worth the read. That was an amazing story. Which Uni is this might I ask?
@Midnite St0rm, Brandon University
