Huge Nerds

I am not afraid to admit that I am a huge nerd.  I married a huge nerd, my family is a family of nerds, and most of my friends are afflicted with nerdiness in one way or another.

And so it should come as no surprise that tonight we engaged in that most nerdly of pursuits: Dungeons and Dragons.  Er...technically, we played Pathfinder (a new system that is essentially an improvement on D&D 3.5...some just call it 3.75).  Not sure if that makes it less nerdy, or more so.

In any case, Andrew was our fearless leader and managed to whip up a quick adventure for us in very short order while we spent waaayy too long updating our characters from the last adventure (or making a new one in my case- I wanted to try a ranger).

I won't do a play by play, but I WILL say that we somehow managed to avoid some hurdles set up by Andrew almost entirely, and that we kicked the crap out of some monsters far more easily than a party of our size and level should have managed.  Mostly through blind luck.  We even killed one of the most dangerous, evil, and ancient beings on the planet through judicious use of fire, dolphins, and gravity.

But let's face it, this entire blog post is merely an excuse to post a picture of one of the monsters from tonight. Who we walloped in good order.  Keep in mind that he may LOOK cute and cuddly, but he reduced my Badger (Booger) to 0 hit points in one blow.
(Actually an Earth Elemental.  Big and scary.)
