Character du Jour: Zyla Notswallow

“Ok, time to introduce your new character.”
“A gorgeous female elf approaches your table. ‘I’m Swallow’.”
“Pardon?”
“I’m Swallow!”
“Oh, I thought you said…….. never mind.”
“Look, you can’t call a character Swallow. Especially not a hot elf.”
“Why not?”
“It’s in the rules. You just can’t. Pick another name.”
“Ok. Zyla then. And she’s wearing all black. She’s a Cleric of the Raven Queen.”
“Pleased to meet you, Zyla Notswallow. Would you like to join our table. We have need of a Cleric.”
“Waitaminute. You were going to call a Goth Elf death chick Swallow?”
“Look, drop it, ok? It’s Zyla. Her name’s Zyla.”

Gamers can be so juvenile. It’s like playing in Wayne’s World sometimes…….


Zyla using her Cloud of…… uhhhh…… Fireflies. Whatever.

    I’ve had similar issues before. Calling a druid “Wood” or a necromancer “Bone” are apparently bad ideas as well.

    I really hope her material component for that spell she’s casting is SPARKLES!
