whenever somebody says like “so what did you do today?” just look off into the distance and say “the right thing”

Then stare right into their eyes and say, “I hope”


making HONEST ANTAGONISTS who believe they’re in the right and firmly believe in what they’re doing is SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING than making them “crazy” because of some outside influence. make villains who believe they are the protagonists

I played once with a “killer DM,” though he would’ve said that he was just being realistic with our chances. I also like playing low-wisdom characters, so my death toll was significantly higher than anyone else. This is a story of one of those incredibly foolish characters.

Our (almost entirely evil) party got what seemed like a cushy gig, providing extra security for a merchant’s ship. All we’ve got to do is help the sailors repel any attacks, and we get a nice paycheck on top of getting taken in the direction we needed to go.

Unfortunately, it turns out this particular merchant was, for whatever reason, the favorite target of several different local pirates. And since the captain absolutely refused to lower the colors marking us as that merchant’s ship, we were literally getting attacked every single day. The party was getting incredibly frustrated and was trying to figure out how to get our money without risking our necks any more. That’s when the mother of all pirate ships found us.

To say that this pirate ship had us outgunned would be an understatement. It was easily three times our size, had a full complement of ballistae, and we had reason to believe they had a couple of wizards on board as well. The captain lowered the sails and ran up the white flag. We were boarded.

The rest of the party saw this as a golden opportunity to escape this crap job. I wanted to join them in surrendering, but as I looked down at my character sheet, I fixed my eye on my alignment: Lawful Evil. I resigned myself to rolling up a new character as I stepped up to the pirate captain.

"Excuse me," I said. "I was hired as security for this ship. So, I’m contractually obligated to try to stop you. Here goes." **ahem** "Stop, please?"

In game and around the table, there was a moment of absolute silence. The DM had me roll for it, and I just knew that my time was up. “Seven.”

DM ponders for a moment. The pirate captain looks me square in the eye. “Dammit, son, that was ballsy. You ever want to consider piracy, come find me.” He handed me a scrap of paper with his name hastily scrawled on it, and the pirates left.

look at this cop-hating suffragette kitty 

cats were actually used pretty frequently in anti-suffragette art. The idea was that women demanding votes was as fanciful as cats demanding votes. (The whole slippery-slope “if we give women the vote what’s next? animals??” mentality) You can read more about it here
