iirc, it's an 1/day Bard class feature that lets them sustain up to 10 people by singing in lieu of food or water. That the Drow fuel their cities with righteous metal was proposed as an alternative theory to mushroom growth and "Lloth does it".

"We're Back" Movie references. BBEG has a fear of crows or being alone. Not sure which. Surrounding himself with a fear carnival and traveling town to town, he went about scaring people to make him not feel alone.

His good guy brother conversely made a dream machine to hear the wishes of children and try to bring joy to the world. For some dumb reason, the children's strongest wishes were to have Dinosaurs show up.

Good guy bro makes a machine to go back in time and made a crazy ass breakfast cereal that made them smart enough to make crappy songs and talk without the desire to eat people.

The crow quotes are from near the end of the movie where the BBEG is literally devoured by crows once he's alone. The "Dawn of time" thing is a lyric from a dumb song the T-rex sings during a parade he's trying to hide in.

Tanks, well, old tanks, not so sure about modern ones, have slits on the sides at eye level, and they carry spare ammunition inside the tank itself.

If he rolled well enough, I would, in fact, rule that he'd fired an arrow with such precision that it had slipped through one of the slits and punctured one of the spare shells in such a way that it went off, taking the rest of the spares, the tank crew, and the tank itself with it.

He was afraid of crows because they took his eye, and they were always near, so he kept the scares near him or something.

If the players in your campaign are all set with having a retarded setting where logic and physics hold no purchase then go ahead. It's still stupid as hell and not worth posting as an "epic" story.

Besides, a fantasy universe where nuke arrows can be created with magic is different to a predefined, somewhat serious universe where a basic human kills an rabid behemoth in power armour with an ordinary brick.

That's still just as stupid, even if that happened the arrow would not have enough force to puncture the casing of a tank shell.

If you throw a brick hard enough at a dudes head you could kill them
its not that hard

>> No.27343037


I'm not saying I wouldn't disallow 'dumb' things for 'realism', I'm saying that if a DM wants to do that, it is literally none of your business that he does, and getting butthurt at a story about that or the very idea that something doesn't align perfectly with your personal rules and expectations for the game is kinda sad.

And as you can see, there are ways you can do your little arrow scenario. Smaug had a weak spot right over his heart, and the human dood's arrow was super cool magiked, for a very classic example.

Entirely off-topic, but I hated that guy's character. About the third time he asked if he'd ever told me the definition of insanity, I wanted to reach into my computer and punch him.

Don't get me wrong, he had the best writing of all the characters in the game, he just grated on me for whatever reason.

The only monologue he ever made that legitimately took me by surprise was when he told why he knew the definition of insanity, but it only really surprised me up until he mentioned that he killed the guy that told him the definition. That last time, shortly before you kill him, I actually paused it and talked to my screen and said, "Yes. You did. And I'm just about sick and fucking tired of hearing it and I swear, I'm about ready to walk up to you, take that piddly ass little peashooter from you, wrestle you to the ground, shove it up your ass, and empty it."

Eh, I think you can claim leeway when the material in question is old, or from a discontinued product line. Honestly, a lot of the free rpgs I see posted in share threads are under some kind of copyright, with no permission given to be shared anywhere.
