View Full Version : M&m Wwgcp?

2010-04-29, 05:33 AM
I was stating a Gelatinous Cube as a PC for a game, and as a special theme, I wanted the GC to be a Bard. The first instrument I thought of was the bagpipes, but it didn't make sense for the GC, so I wanted to have a sidekick to play it. Some kind of unholy bagpipes that are fueled by souls and only undead can play on. But it misses the point of a GCB (Gelatinous Cube Bard).

So like I said in the title, what would Gelatinous Cube play?

I assume they can make pseudopods of a sort, so a particularly dextrous cube could work most percussion instruments fairly well.

Perform: Wobbling noises. :smalltongue:

At the very least, they should be able to slowly exert push/pull to extend/contract an object. So maybe an accordian?

Well... it's a bit of a stretch, but in a novel by a Sci-fi author who's name gets censored by the forum, there was a race of alien amoeba who made sounds by forming large membranes and then stretching and contracting them.

So, basically, play the drums.

Play the Kettle Drum.

Bum-bum bum-bum bum-bum. "RAMMING SPEED!" <GLORP>

Failing that, definitely the cello.
