    I suspect that you meant poisoned the well, and that auto text or auto correct has struck you from behind by surprise.

    So, does that Sneak Attack make auto-correct a Rogue or an Assassin?

    A rogue, autocorrect is Chaotic Neutral so it can’t be an assassin.

    You would be correct.
    I'd just like to point out that saying that something unsupported is the case unless someone else can prove that it is not is an utter failure of logic. - Kish

    Shame rogue's don't get spells, you could have had the chance to cast Magic Moth, Speak with Dad, or Direball. Though you could still be pretty useful. You'd never worry about running out of food if you're liberal with Canning Action, your Evasion would be improved with Stroke of Duck, and as an assassin, you could really hinder people with Deaf Strike.

    Maybe the Giant should do a second selection of "Misspelled" comics!

    5e has an Arcane Trickster who does. And Rogue/Thief has Use Magic Device at level 13.

    That would be Mireball: lots of mud in a 20' radius.

    Stroke of Duck takes us to close to NSFW / not family friendly for us to continue this digression. The Canning action might be useful in a survival situation, to be sure.

    Okay, now I'm statting out a mireball in 3.5. Should be easy enough, I just need to decide what is being substituted for the fire. Too bad there's isn't a paraelemental plane for mud.

    Think about how many virulent homophobes have turned out to be gay. Same thing really.

    So I got thinking on slang names for illicit Bonsai. I keep going into weed, grass, bud, etc but dwarves don't hate plants, they hate trees. There have to be some good tree/drug jokes out there, right? Best I came up with:

    Getting into bonsai as a first time user - "Branching out"

    Having a long growing bonsai - "Putting a ring on it"

    Mom found your bonsai stash - "Getting stumped"

    I assumed she was gay. That said, I'm in the camp of "it doesn't matter, unless Rich decides it does" If we find out its that she's gay, cool. If we find out it's something else, I'm cool with that, too.

    I just enjoy imagining that it is something very silly. Like Bonsai or preferring cider to beer.

    Put me in the camp where Minrah enjoys/does something a bit out of the ordinary for Dwarves:
    * She secretly likes listening to Elvish poetry.
    * She adores being outside, under the open sky.
    * She doesn't like partners with beards.
    * She loves horses and would like to learn to ride someday.
    * Beautiful carved gems don't do anything for her.
    * She's scared of total darkness, despite her darkvision.
    * She doesn't care about money or amassing wealth.

    There's lots of possibilities. Which would actually cause her to worry or have social anxiety?

    I dunno, though I could see her going through the motions of oohing and aahing like everyone else over some large carved gem that is being displayed, while secretly wondering if there's something wrong with her since, to her, it's just a big sparkly stone, so what's the big deal?

    I played a half-orc cleric with this exact description. Despite having darkvision, he would always prepare a ton of light spells in case he was ever in a particularly... shadowy situation. I'm pretty sure the first magic item he ever got was an everburning torch.

    Oddly, and completely coincidentally, he was not the only character in the party with a fear of the dark. So at least he had some company.

    Dark vision has a 60 foot limit, well within the charge range of a deep crow.

    If the characters aren't afraid of the dark, the GM obviously isn't putting the right (wrong) things in the dark.

    OK, so as has been explained in this very thread, Minrah probably won't be trans...but #1194 is such an accidental trans mood.

    Wanting to be a certain way, and being told you inherently can't be? "And the best part is[...]only knows that part of you"? I'm pretty sure I've said those exact words, post transition.

    And I'm really sure I've said "not one of them thinks of me as a dumb town guard" with a few words switched out.

    Plus:
    : Preach it, sister!
    "I already am, because I'm a cleric."

    Yeah, whether or not Rich intends it, she certainly comes across to me like a trans woman who is very excited about affirming her gender, and enthusiastic about being who she is. It's nice to see that in a character, even if it probably won't be confirmed one way or the other.
