Gelatinous Cube

A band of adventurers set off to find adventure. And adventure they
found.


The usual band of SCUL space pilots was nowhere to be found, and in
its place, a paladin, a thief, a cleric, an assassin, a wizard, a
few
gay lovers, some assorted nerds, and a dungeon master. And lots of
dice -- very nerdly dice. The most fearsome of which is the dreaded
1,537 mirror-sided deth-die which was constantly spinning to
determine
our fate (not a fair die.)


Repeated saving throw fail against mechanical marred our early
attempts to get the adventure off the ground. We eventually drummed
up
our courage, well met enough to attack a fearsome dino-dragon near
the
edge of the
dam Cambridge system, it was guarding something called the Museum of
Science. We're to understand this "science" forms the basis for
alchemy, but we shall leave this to our wise man on another day. In
the meantime -- there's a dino-dragon what needs slaying! It proved
too much for our meager axes and magic missiles, so the retreat was
sounded, and we scampered off most tail-tuckedly
overpowered.


Our adventures continued to the edge of the great nebula in
Southieshire. Upon seeing our fearsome red dragon-ship, one local
was
heard to remark: "Oh my gwaahd! Lookit the shaahk! Lookit!" The
local
constabulary was keen to give us a slow once over. Q said: "We come
in
peace.
We're nerds!" The constable replied: "Keep on nerding!" and was off
with a friendly wave. Remind me to buy them a pint of the finest
local
ale at the tavern for such upstanding service to the people!


After much general merriment with some girls from the local bawdy
house (how else would they know all the verses and dance to every
song?) and a bit of armor-free riding around, we headed back to our
home Duchy.


Nosepicker's new steed,
UltraSuperMegaMagicalRainbowUnicornSilverMagicWolfWizard.com, was
nearly cloven in twain upon hitting a tiny lady-jumper beetle-toad
along our path. Her carcass was left behind for the next shambling
mound to digest.


Our band of adventurers has returned to our home Duchy and will
spend
the next several rounds restoring hit points lost, and figuring out
how to load the next Dungeon Master's dice.
