    "...the GOOD news is that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing!"

    Classic! One of my favorite Blackwing lines to date!

    Wow, and I just dropped by.

    Who else is hoping that impact on the door is the newly-restored Allosaurus?

    I deeply approve of this approach to magic.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    Hah! I can honestly say I've never seen someone deliberately botch a UMD check to get this result before! Now let's hope it doesn't burn the ship down.

    Also that might be one of my favorite lines from Blackwing so far.

    Screw the main cast, I want the adventures of Scruffy and Blackwing on a journey to restore their dinosaur friend back to its former glory.

    See, V? This is why we pay attention to our familiars - so they don't blow up our brand-new scroll! Oh, and the ship as well, I suppose...

    Verbal component of the spell/attempt to read the scroll is great

    Great writing as always.

    that is creative. of course, if I were a player, I'd then start making scrolls then intentionally failing the checks while throwing them like grenades to deal damage....
    I'm also on discord as "raziere".

    Ha! I had no idea what the mechanic was that could cause this to happen. That's great.

    A surprisingly ingenious plan, considering it's Blackwing we're talking about.

    It's not. It's the spell scroll misfiring.

    I read this in a public place and almost burst laughing outloud. Great solution, didn't get it at first, found it much funnier when Blackwing considered not knowing wth he was doing good news.

    Check this game out! Or at least give it a thumbs up.
    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    Hah! The wonders of using magic items as explosives is a classic one, in more creative circles, indeed. The rats almost certainly have far fewer hit points than the others, so an area effect was just what they needed.
