How to Break Your GM

I GM an often-silly D&D game for two friends. Here is one of our recent email exchanges:

valkryor's character, a halfling, and shishain's character, an eladrin, have recently struck a "friends with benefits" arrangement. In email, there was a short discussion about the characters' preferences, kinks, tendencies, hard limits, and so on. My only contribution to the exchange was:

Me: Saago-say [my NPC] is hiding under the couch in the Green Room. He won't come out.


The conversation then turned to the fact that the characters are being rather delinquent about taking precautions, and it was suggested, by both parties, that a twist in the sub-plot of the game along the lines of an unexpected pregnancy wouldn't be opposed. The following exchange ensued:

Valkryor: I think we just made Clawfoot's day, Shishain. It's like I can hear her cackling from here. ;D


Me: I'm actually trying to lure Saago-say out from under the couch. With bacon. He's not taking it.

(What I'm really doing is trying to figure out eladrin fertility rates. So dice may be involved.)


Me: (Less than five minutes later): OMFG YOU PEOPLE HAVE ME CONSIDERING ELADRIN MALE SPERM COUNT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. I'M SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING, DAMMIT.

I'M JOINING SAAGO-SAY UNDER THE COUCH.


Valkryor: Achievement Unlocked! :D
