It’s D&D* day today! It’s finally here! And in a strange topsy-turvy turn of events, I’m going to be the most experienced player at the table tonight! I’m the pretend sit-in expert.
Unfortunately, I’m probably also the most likely one to die tragically and in an untimely manner just because of my brotherly/sisterly, love/hate thing that I’ve got going on with the DM**. (I’m the sister, btw.) But hey, it’s all part of the fun. If I die, I’ll just create another kick-ass character for the next time.
Although sadly my imagination is quite lacking in that department just because I love my little Halfling so much. She’s basically entirely modelled from Zhyria, my former D&D character (and one of the few characters I played who wasn’t a stripper) except for the fact that this character, Summer De Light, is a drag queen.
I love the irony of her name. She is not going to be delightful in any way, shape or form. I’m seeing more of an entirely dark-sided Bianca Del Rio type; except not as funny because I do not have those kinds of skills!
The makeup will be fabulous though.
*Dungeons & Dragons. An RPG***. I played before; then I stopped. Now I’m starting again with a different group entirely composed of myself and first-timers. In the next few days I’ll post a link with more information for anyone who’s interested, but be warned: this is just the tip of the ice-berg.
**Dungeon Master. The dude who runs the game. He gives us our set-up, plot, obstacles, direction and also tries to kill us at every available opportunity. Curse you, Dungeon Master!!
