Stupid Items Dungeons and Dragons Players Exploited To Their Limits

It's hard to be a dungeon master. You can spend hours thinking of the perfect campaign, just to have players turn into murder hobos and spend hours fighting geese for bread. But where there is fantasy-fueled absurdity, there are also more emotional D&D moments like this total feels trip of a campaign or this guy's grandmother who fell in love with Dungeons and Dragons while battling cancer.

RPG Creator Points Out The Geographical Absurdity of New Orleans

Co-Creator of Pathfinder @Jameslsutter has enough experience in fantasy cartography to know when a place is supposed to look believable or not. His diagnosis is that Louisiana has done a great job of convincing him that New Orleans exists when in fact it's laid out like a real not my job, "4:30 on a Friday" kind of map-making project. For fans of fantasy, here's a Tumblr thread on the theory surrounding Dwarves' super intelligent beards.

Yes, this particular rabbit hole takes us along for the exploration of dwarves' super beards. It's fun. The thread suggests that dwarves' beards are these intelligent defense mechanisms that evolved due to the stresses of their environment. All that mining for gems and treasures can be risky business without proper face protection. 


Tumblr thread talks about dwarves' beards being intelligent defense mechanisms | deluxeloy Theory: So know dwarves have thing with beards if 's not just cultural standard or mere coincidence if there's reason? See, dwarves like dig lot. They build underground homes, and there's nothing more rewarding them than digging up some gems or valuable metals. But chipping away at all rock and disturbing all earth kicks up lot dust and dirt. If do every day without proper breathing protection

@SaystheFox found some hard times and put that energy into making some magic happen for a kid in their neighborhood. It's probably some of the more wholesome stuff we've seen.
