Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition
About two weeks ago, my local D&D group encountered a young white dragon, blocking their path through the mountain pass. Half the group managed to sneak past it - the dragon itself was awake and watching their progress, but for reasons unknown it was letting them pass.|
There was not enough space to let the oxcart through, and the dragon was staring pointedly at the ox pulling the cart. Gunnvor Gaidasdottir, who was raised in a village where her family raised oxen for sale, was fiercely protective of the beast.
Trekkiegirl: "I'm going to try to Intimidate it. Scare it away."
Roommate: "Uh, it's a dragon, I don't think--"
Trekkiegirl: "No, it'll be cool, I can swear at it in Draconic. I know Draconic."
"I roll Intimidate against a dragon"
