Of the Spooniness of Bards
featured on Dec. 8, 2005 contributed by Jerry Swain

My friends and I were playing a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, and at the time were attempting to flank a group of orcs that were planning to attack a nearby city. The group consisted of a amazoness fighter, a gnomish tinkerer (me), and two wonderfully ditzy people: a dancer who always wore bells, and a rather stupid bard.

Passing through a forest, we were accosted by fairies/pixies. After a lengthy bit of mind games on their part, they finally made their presence known by turning the ground beneath us into quicksand. Only two of us, myself and the bard, made it out thanks to a saving throw (hyuk). Anyway, while trying to figure out how to get my friends out, the warrioress yelled "There's a rope in my backpack! Throw it to me!" to the bard.

The bard proceeds to throw the backpack in the face of the warrioress.
