Last week the table-top gaming club was playing dungeons and dragons; this is the main game they play in the club. Since all of their character’s characteristics and traits are random some rather funny combinations occur like: Cunningham being a 3-foot female gnome, a smaller human who usually lives in forests or caves. The story for this particular game is that every club member’s character met in a tavern.

“This is how most dungeons and dragons games start out and then we add the character’s main quest,” senior and club leader Zack Horn said.

The character’s quest in this storyline is to travel to Cunningham’s father’s palace to acquire fame and riches. When the game left off from last week one of the members died off and the other characters were resting by a bonfire on the plains. After everyone rolls for to see who’s turn is up first and the game begins. Tensions rise when 6 kenkus (humanoid raven monsters) jump out from the bushes. Dominic, a club member, rolls first to attack the first kenku and fails. Josh, another club member, is thrown unconscious by one of the monsters by rolling a 1. It was Cunningham’s turn next and he rolled a nineteen and got to kill two kenkus in a single blow.

“It was an epic move that Cunningham pulled,” senior Steven Delaney said.

After the other 3 kenkus were killed off, Josh’s character finally wakes up. Most of the characters had very low health after the attack since their characters were so low-leveled. The bell rings for first block when the game finishes and all the club members pack up to leave. The game still continues every Tuesday and Thursday and the club members say they are still having fun.

“Yeah, I really enjoy this club a lot it means a lot to me,” senior Frank Kuzara said.
