    Summary

    Ramlethal clung to the cold metal of the train’s ladder as it thundered along the track. She scanned the frozen valley and the town within it with a calculating gaze.

    Above her, on the train’s top, a one-eyed samurai was more concerned with the figure floating high above the city.

    “Delilah!” She shouted. “If you don’t get down from there, your ass is grounded!”

    Ram sighed, covering her face with a hand. “Miss Baiken, I don’t think that’s character-accurate.”

    “...Shit.”

    Summary

    High school blows, dude. All the classes are boring, everyone thinks everyone else is a loser, and no one even has super powers to help them get through it in one piece.
    Well. No one has super powers in real life, anyway. In Dungeons and Dragons, though—or Midoriya's Nerd Game, if you want to call it that—you can do just about anything you want. Besides get cooler. No one gets cooler from playing D&D. You certainly can't get more friends doing that.
    But dammit if these kids aren't gonna try.

    Summary

    Neptune, in her infinite wisdom, has decided that the best way to increase Lily Points with the other goddesses, is to play a tabletop game with them, but not just any game, but Dungeons and Dragons (3.5e), with Histoire as the Dungeon Master. Join them in their experience of learning and playing the game.
    --------
    All dice rolls are actual dice rolls. Not even the author would know how a combat encounter would end up. No knowledge of 3.5e is required, but would be greatly beneficial to understand some meta-humor. Updates monthly on the 19th, as best as the author can manage.

    Summary


    Murderbot, Thiago, Arada, and Ratthi are characters in a game of D&D, dubiously reskinned for a sci-fi setting.

    How much of a challenge can one boat full of raiders be? How many conflicts of expectation can one session possibly contain? How many tabletop no-nos can possibly fit into 300 words?

    Three drabbles re-imagining the opening scene of Network Effect as a tabletop RPG session going roughly.

    Summary

    Yagi Toshinori stares intently at the character sheet in front of him, brows furrowed in concentration. He only understands about half of what he is reading. Yagi has never played a game like D&D before. The idea never made much sense to him; he already ‘roleplayed' his hero persona while on patrol anyway. The idea of spending his free time pretending to be yet ANOTHER persona sounded kind of exhausting.

    It’s no secret though that Yagi can never say no to where his students are involved. Now, Yagi’s eyes are practically going crossed trying to interpret the character sheets. Armor class? Hit dice? Spell save? It was a completely different language, and he wonders what exactly he is getting himself into. 'I've really got to stop letting that kid talk me into things,' he thinks.

    “I should have done this years ago…”

    Asuka sighed, lowering his hand back to his side and shaking his head. After a moment, he glanced back up.
