Okay, this month is purely for laughs. i'm not trying to win it, i just want to have a good time and myabe make a few folks grin. i'll let the dungeon master who is creating the map take the reigns.

Hi

My name is Timmy, and i'm 13 years old. i just got the basic set, and i want to be the DM. so i found these random dungeon tables and went about trying to make them work. i think it will be a small dungeon because i only want a few encounters. i know one of them is going to be a spider lair because i have a tarantula and i like spiders because spiders rock! then i want a cave with a elf in it because il ike elfs too.

then i'm going to have a few maze like passages and lots of secret doors because my players always look for them and i want to have a lot. and i want some in the maze because i like mazes too.

and these mazes were made by ant monsters too. not just big ants, but ants with intelligence. okay, so that's it. i'll start on the map tomorrow.

Oh this is going to be good. Timmy sounds like my first dungeon master. (I was 14 at the time, prior to that I was always the DM)

So this is my dungeon. i rolled on the random charts in the old Dungeon Master Guide my uncle JP gave me. i like this book better than the edition i have. this one has a lot more tables and charts but its hard to read because the type is so small. but the artifacts and all the really cool magic items are neat. and the picture on the cover is kewl. it even has a dungeon map but it only describes the first three rooms so thats not really helpful. and they have a spider in that one too. and thats neat because i like spiders.

anyway, i rolled up this dungeon and drew it in pencil and then traced over it. i like to make lots of notes on my map to make sure i don't forget anything. so if it is a little hard to read that's my fault.

i looked at some of my uncles old maps and saw he did the cross hatching around the edges so i decided to do the same thing. i think it looks neat so i'll do that on all my maps from now on.

since the random rolls make it look wierd i figured the caves were built by the formian workers in room 5 and then somebody came and put up the doors later. maybe Helvar the Elf in room 1.

i hope you like it. i worked all day on it.

So hi Timmy,

*sniff*

I've brought my character for today's game.

*adjust glasses; sniff*

And some empty sheet I create with daddy new commodore 64 computer, in case someone forgot his sheet.

*He he he (my dad's better than yours)*

I'm ready to kill some dragon or demon bug with my Robin Hood char.

okay Alu, i'll take your character but you have to explain to me why you have a 16 comeliness and a 5 charisma. there's a negative penalty of 3 for your charisma, so if you rolled a 19 on 3 dice, i would like to know how this happened.

oh, and i'll let you adjust your hit points back up to full. if you are going into my dungeon, you're going to need it. bwa ha! find some other players and you're on. we need a wizard and a thief for the secret doors and traps. and maybe a cleric would do. i don't have any undead in the dungeon but you might need it for healing.

and change your character's name. i think legolas would be better. you would end up knowing the king aragorn in my campaign world. my sister wants to play a dwarf thief with a short bow. she hasn't played ever, so i'm going to be teaching her.

i guess i'll have to bring in a wizard, theodorus the wise, my 18th level character i made last week. he rocks. he'll help you fight the bad guys in this map.

i only have a couple of miniatures that my uncle gave me so your character will probably be represented by the yellow sorry game piece. and i don't have dice. i just have chits in a plastic cup my mom gave me.


(anyone remember the days of chits?.....)

don't worry don. if i win i'll be surprised. there's so many others that are so much better. i can't wait to see all the entries. this one is going to be a tight race. there's so many out there that are better than mine. yes, i'll be honored if i win, but come on.... i've got nothing on some of the others. i probably won't even vote for myself, the others are just that good.

Back again,

I made some changes to Lego(tm) Last:
- first I let him sleep at an inn to get is HP back.
- second in town he saw a little person call Tassleoff of something like that, who sold him is +2 dagger for 5 gp + the map of our last dungeon.
- third I readjust the THAC0 for the sling so it use the Dex attack no-bonus.
- Fourth, You should remember that elves got +2 to comeliness due to sharp magical look and their funny hears.

Lastly, daddy doesn’t want me to use is computer again this week (a little bit of jus on it, so what...).
So you will have to do your sis char and the other player from the guild will have to take 10 minutes before the game to redo their heroes.
Hope to see them soon in case there is some errors. Did U call Pyrou & ana, to come and play, since they talked to you about this senario.

Ciao,
Aru jr.

Hi timmy,

I've thought about your mini problem and I finally found one for my archer.

I dress him up for the future, once he found the crossbow of mass carnage and the helm of true seeing.

hope you like him,
Aru.

P.S.: did you find any other players?

hey!

that gives me a great idea! i didn't think about using my castle lego peices.

so my ssiter rolled up a character. she wants to be a princess of the faries. i told her she could only be a wizard or a warrior or a cleric bu she cried until i said yeah. she's only 10. mom said i should let her play even though i wanted to stay by the rules but mom said i should be nice and not make her play by the rules.

so she's got a 18 charisma and owns a castle. but i told her a dragon stole her crown and she has to find it. she wants it back.

and my best freind wants to play a fighter with a two handed sword and when i told him you were 4th level he said he wanted to be 4th too. and he said he would be married to the farie princess but she doesn't like him so there's not much of a chance that it will happen. so it looks like it will be you, my freind, my little sister, and me as the DM. we'll meet on saturday at my house and play in the basement where my dad has his bar set up. mom bought a bunch of jolt cola and doritos which are my favorite, and twizzlers, which are my favorite snack and we can have fun then.

i'll show you the characters when you get here. thanks for giving me the character sheets. i'll see you later.

For my part, I do see a real big error, if not some treachery:
Half-orc CANNOT get 25 in comeliness. Absolutely NOT (MAX 14).
:(
So do some correction and you can come play for my part:
8)
Comeliness back to 14; AC down to -6 (cause u miss a point) and correct the spelling error (it GRATE axe):x

See U at the table,
Aru.

P.S.: what will be ur Miniature???

Nah old man,

it is you that is the problem, You've lost ur inner child....

YOU are NOW a LOST SOUL :o cursed & damned by the society to get old and crumble to dust.

But I talked with my friends on an emergency reunion (this morning) and we've have found a remove curse scroll.

The only problem is that you must use it before the next full moon or your inner you will be forever lost :?

I post the scroll for u,

Aru.
