Anyway, *crack knuckles* where's my sword, theres a dragon that needs me to give him the ole what-for. Anyone up for dragon steaks?

Yes, but I also have the advantage of being female. :D *wins*

Also, I would like a fillet, medium rare. Thanks. What sides are you serving?

And you never answered how old you though I was. :(

Yes, Shimavak, you get bonus points. Whee! :D

EDIT: Disregard the question about age.

Also, don't you feel slightly ashamed for swearing at me now? :P

Aww, hell. Who am I kidding?

I'm serving whatever the hell I cut off of that abomination. It'll be a surprise.

And just because you're younger then me doesn't change the fact that you're a ball crushing bitch.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be back in five.

How about: Cruelty is in the eyes of the bee holder.

In which case, I don't think any of us are in a position to judge cruelty at the moment. That is, unless, of course, the dragon happens to be one of those dragons that has bees in its mouth and when it opens its mouth it shoots bees at you.

That would kind-of suck then.

Eh, this thread doesn't exist for the intros. It exists for the side conversations on disturbing word choice, emasculation and abdomens.

Hrm, which is worse, a dragon that shoots flame, or bees?

Hrm, which is worse, a dragon that shoots flame, or bees?


"Breath Weapon (Cone of Bees): A honeycomb dragon can, as an attack action, spew angry bees in a 30 foot cone. This attack does (age category+3)d8 of piercing damage to all within the area of effect (half damage on successful reflex save), and engulfs all targets that failed their save in bees (treat as a "Swarm, Bees (medium)" occupying the space of each affected target). The bees dissipate at the end of 3 rounds.

A honeycomb dragon must wait 1d4 rounds after using its cone of bees before it can use the breath weapon again.

If a target of the Cone of Bees is already engulfed in bees from a previous Cone of Bees attack, the attack simply renews the duration of the swarm, but the durations do not stack nor does the attack create a second swarm."

Is it bad that this rules mechanic immediately popped into my head, unbidden?

I have played way too much D&D in my life.

Impressive. I haven't played much D&D at all (unless you include Baldur's Gate), but that's good stuff.

Unless you're in the cone of bees. :shock:

For reference, as far as I know, D&D has no honeycomb dragon. I just made that mechanic up just now.

Which is the part that kindof frightens me.

I don't think it does either, but it should.
Quick, someone get a campaign revolving around honeycomb dragons!

I have friends who would TOTALLY play that. I'm not into RPGs much though...strategy is SO much more fun and rewarding in my opinion.

Hmm...according to me D&D-junkie-bud, you can't have hybrid dragons, there's only dragons and half-dragons. What the fuck is the other half in a half dragon, anyway? Is it just missing? I can't imagine a dragon with half of its body missing would be particularly deadly.

well this isnt exactly D&D. its d20, it IS based in Faerun, but as for the geography and inhabitants, its all out of kenneths head.

so rule books be damned. i will have my flaming bees dragon.

AND IT WILL BE A MOUNT. BECAUSE HOW COOL IS A WARMAGE ON A DRAGON WITH FLAMING BEES?! VERY DAMN COOL (how you like that one? eh? *prod*)

...I'm just about bored enough. Do you want me to stat swarm-host dragons up?

Maybe a Honeycomb Dragon and an Ant-Maw Dragon....

And then maybe one that's a host to a HellWasp swarm... (Your flaming bee dragon, perhaps, without even having to hybridize)

The other half is....anything else. Human. Troll. Horse. Monkey. Whatever.

Dragons can shapechange, they can pretty much get Jiggy with anything.

Half-dragon is a template that's applied to whatever the other half of the mating was.

God, now you're reminding me of why I don't hang out with my D&D friends often.


Because they talk about their hobby? I know, isn't it scandalous?

Parkaboy, why don't we instead talk about <popular sporting event> or <celebrity pairing of the month>, as that would be far more socially acceptable and therefore better.

No, I wasn't talking about casual conversation, I was talking about actually attending the games. And what turns me off of it is not talking about it in conversation, but the fact that you need to make up/modify the rules whenever you want to do ANYTHING interesting. I want to be able to light a house on fire from thirty paces without having to spend three hours listening to a debate on whether the character they have created for me is "balanced" with the rest of the party, and whether he is too powerful or not powerful enough, if so. Give me an army and some vague instructions any day. Today, for example, would be nice.

yeeeeah, it is =/ creativity is more important in a GM than "knowing the rules" - sure rules help but you know what? ITS A FRIGGIN GAME. you arent going to get ticketed or thrown in jail by the nerd police if you bend the rules to fit your situation. god forbid you make your own and some some brain activity other than "hurhur i can read..."

have some fun with it. its like people on WoW that get their panties in wads over every little thing. sheesh, people. lighten up.

Nerd: I swear I wasn't going to use a d20 for my spot check officer. I was only joking.
Officer: Be that as it may, you do realize that you ran an illegal round back there, and failed to yield at a marked initiated check. I'm afraid that I have no choice but to cite you. You may chose to do an evasion check, but be warned that I roll 20s on my spot check, and should I catch you--which I will--I will not hesitate to cast stun on you.

I run into the same kind of people in multiplayer starcraft. I'm far from gosu (actually being good), I'm actually pretty bad. I play protoss, and whenever I select it, people groan and say "oh, damn, I was hoping for a hard game". Then I beat them (often; I usually play against others at my skill level), and they say, "Well protoss is overpowered, everyone knows that." Bastards.
