Colorblind heroes and other stories

Written by Expy - Published on July 16, 2008

Make them laugh!

We’re all passionate about D&D and roleplaying and we all have a blast talking about the game.  I know my friends and I have a good laugh every time we play.

Why not instill a little laughter on purpose?  Every DM is always looking for a quirk for that new NPC.  Why not a joke-telling NPC?  I’m sure you can come up with something funny. Even if it’s not that funny, your players will definitely remember the NPC because stories stick.

Dragon stories

Personally I am fond of dragons and dragon stories.  Here are a few random ones:

  • Colorblind adventurers know how hard it is to fight a brown dragon.  You never know if they going to spew gas or spit fire.
  • No matter what color they are, all depressed dragons feel blue.
  • Green dragon story
  • White dragon story

Have fun

I guess the point of this is: have fun.  In game, out of character, player, DM, just have fun and enjoy the ride!

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    In one of my campaigns I created a young dragon that was a “lucky clumsy dragon”. In that if he were walking through the forest while being stalked by an enemy band, he would find the only fallen tree to trip over landing on his chest and forcing a breath of fire to be realealed. Consequently incinerating the enemy, and having the dragon clueless that he was bieng stalked.

    That’s a good concept. Dragons are already tough enough to defeat, what are you going to do if they’re lucky too?

    I guess I could throw in a dislexic wizard, or a studdering spell caster, better yet a ranger who has allergies. There are a lot of ways to have fun in a campaign. (as he laughs sinisterly). I could even create a paladin with terets (YOU &^%$$, oh sorry my queen i was not refering to you. even though we um…seem to be the only ones here.)
