From 4chan’s traditional game’s board comes this amusing orcish anecdote:
Reminds me of a friend’s character from a D&D game a while back. He was a half-orc barbarian who was absolutely convinced that he was a wizard. He had an arsenal of “spells” such as “Blind” (kicking dirt in the enemy’s face), “Inside-Out Man” (a slash to the enemy’s gut), and “Invisible Head” (decapitation).
Best of all was his familiar, who’s name was “Rock”. Rock was just an ordinary rock…but not to him. It was sort of an explanation for his Wisdom score, though, which was actually very high. His Intelligence, not so much.
I believe he ended up heroically sacrificing himself one day, though, by swallowing several vials of Oil of Impact, setting himself on fire, and hugging a Mind Flayer. He had explained that it was his best but most dangerous magic, “Me Bomb”.
That’s awesome. I would use that as an NPC, but I already showed my players…
It actually seems like something that would fit with an aggressive Bard-type, as well. Arcane Spell Failure? Hah! I’ll show you the somatic component for “Invisible Head”!
this is quite possibly the greatest thing i have ever heard of. *thumbs up*
This is really awesome I love it but it was really creepy when I got on and found out I had already posted or my evil same named twin or some such(and on the same day too) anyways Awesome Gm post.
this is so funny, next time we play, i may have to use this idea.
When I said got on I really meant stumbled
Rules. one. and. two.
/TG/ IS NOT /B/
4CHAN HAS BOARDS OTHER THAN /B/!!!???!?!!1?
You must surely be mistaken.
1. Gee, it sure is links to dead threads around here! Next time try an archive.
2. Rules 1 and 2 only apply to raids
3. What is “/B/” and “/TG/”? i’ve heard of “/b/” and “/tg/”, but not “/B/” or “/TG/”
3Â½. CAPS LOCK MAY BE CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL, BUT EVEN WITH CRUISE CONTROL YOU STILL HAVE TO STEER.
B& for mod sass
So an Orc with a parrot on his shoulder walks into a bar. Bartender says “Hey whered you get that thing?” the parrot says “Durotar! they got ‘em all over!”

Bloody great funny thing is its totaly orc
and with there mantality it would make sense to them in that way
This reminds me of a character I made once. He was a rogue who didn’t believe in magic, but pretended to be a wizard in order to get court mage or court advisory positions at castles. He believed that all mages were charlatans and he was just upholding that proud tradition.
In order to evoke his magic he learned pyrotechnics. He had roman candles and fireworks up the sleeves of his asbestos cloak and he would yell out spell names as he fired them off.
One time his cart with all of his… spell components was trapped in an enemy portcullis and the party had to escape without it. He shed a tear, stood up, turned toward his trusty cart and yelled “FIREBALL!” as he launched a particularly powerful firework right at it. The resulting explosion demolished half the keep and made the enemy soldiers take it seriously when he then yelled “Death Arrows!” and fired a roman candle in their direction. This bought the party the time they needed to beat a hasty retreat.
That was a great session. Though replenishing his components was pretty rough.
I really hates you guys.
That is so awesome, I feel compelling to give that player a level worth of x.p. in all my campaigns. Should he ever play in one of my games, that player will definitely be one higher.
