View Full Version : Collectively Generate a GITP D&D Forum post

UPDATE: Post 2 is underway!


This is a simple message board game where we will collectively generate a GITP Post. If it goes well, we'll keep on going!

The rules are simple. The first player picks an edition of D&D (5, 4, 3.5, or Older). The second player generates the post tittle. The next player writes the first sentence, then one by one we add sentences until someone signs off with "Thanks GITP!" or similar.

When it's done, I will compile it and post it to the appropriate forum, and we can watch the response.

Aside from being a fun way to play with the tropes of GITP, this also captures one of my favorite things about the forum, which is reading people random thoughts and the discussions they generate. This will be a fun way of creating interesting conversations. It's not designed to trick anyone, and I will include a link back to this thread in the OP.

I'll kick things off as the first player and pick the EDITION:

3.5

The DM had previously said 'No PVP', but I cast the spell secretly, in a note to the DM, so the other players aren't aware it's on them, which makes it alright.


Comment: there has to be some absurd table drama in there.

Unfortunately the Paladin's player decided that my character's actions labeled him as evil and that he was honour bound to remove the taint of my existence from the world, despite PvP being banned.

The Paladin was so dismayed by his fall from grace, he decided to kill himself right then and there in an attempt to regain his honor and paladinhood.

Of course, my first action was to declare it National Official Burning day, at which point the guards made sure that the Paladin was secure in his straitjacket and tied me to a stake in the town square.

The DM ruled that since today was already National Druid Day, it was illegal to burn me with a wood-based fire.

That sounds good to me. I think we should also try to make it less "trolly." The last one was fun but imagine reacting to it thinking it's genuine you just hate the person posting it. This is apparent in the actual thread.

So my group has started a our first time using gestalt, game, and as I wanted to be a melee fighter I went Paladin and Ranger for heavy armour and dual wielding.
