The Invisible Giant

Posted on September 27, 2016

About twenty years ago I helped organize a convention where we held a D&D Tournament every year. Each team of players were given the same character sheets and the exact same module. The games were run by a group of DMs who were coached to reward roleplaying as well as problem solving.

I, without thinking, throw the rope to the Monk while yelling, "Catch!" and jump down the well with the other…
