Our merry band of adventurers are partying it up at the Black Pig after scoring an embarrassment of wealth from Princess Snowfall-at-Dusk, when out of the corner of Aranna’s (AJ) eye, she notices Veleris (EB), a former love-interest (and a pickpocket). She avoids eye contact. Orlan (HA), glances over and sees his ex-sergeant, Darrak (AB) sharing drinks with Veleris. Orlan, too, avoids eye contact. Finally, Purple Nurple (OR) sees Darrak as well, someone he and Emma Frog (EC) had shared a prison cell with.
We start today’s session with me teaching the kids about the “Five-Man Band” trope, a useful tool for storytelling and playing RPGs when you have a group working together. We didn’t plan it, but by fate of the dice, our merry band of adventurers have fallen into the necessary roles for a “Five-Man Band”.
Veleris (EB) is the sneaky one. Emma Frog (EC) is the weird magical one. Aranna’s (AJ) plays the “face”, the talkative one.
