Just Like Captain Hook, A Pathfinder Short

Tick Tock…Tick Tock…

It seems that crocodiles and pirate captains have a destiny outside of Disney films and stories. Our resident pirate queen, a queen is higher than a captain and she was captaining our ship last night, discovered this destiny in spades.

Captain HookThe photo is the pirate queen being comforted by stickbot with the nemesis of all pirate captains and queens, a crocodile. Over the course of many games, our pirate queen has vanquished many a foe without any problems. To the point that something like an combat check 13 crocodile was an afterthought, as in after I roll my fist full of dice I will think about discarding the crocodile and continue on with my turn…

wait…

what just happened…

I’ll reroll…

….

Silence as our resident pirate queen had her hand wiped. Yep, had to cough up her entire hand of cards to the crocodile who proceeded to return to the deck from whence he or she came. We began to eye our pirate queen, she was mortal after all. Vowing vengeance for her lost hand she went after the crocodile who reappeared two turns later…

No longer an after thought, our pirate queen mustered all of her resources, except a blessing she was saving for a rainy day, and rolled…

FUCK!

She rerolled with gusto…

Silence again…

The crocodile took her other hand. Not even Captain Hook lost two hands to his nemesis. The good news, there was a cleric on hand to heal her wounds, but the shame of losing twice to the “lowly” crocodile stung. Stung so much…

that when she encountered the crocodile today, she spent the blessing, and defeated the crocodile.

Moral of story, there isn’t one, just play your damn blessings and don’t assume a lowly “crocodile” is ever a “lowly” crocodile. They will take off both your hands given a chance. 🙂
