Cards (4 of 25) – “Telephone Poles″

A dreaded card to receive :

How did someone earn one ?  Well, you scored one of these sympathy cards for the distinct misfortune of not just rolling a natural 1, but confirming the Critical Miss with another natural 1.  On the upside, you were reasonably sure that all of the 1’s in that d20 had been “rolled out” and the Law of Averages should immediately start Pezzing out the 20’s.  Or at least giving you better than 17’s.

How frequently were they awarded ?  Frequently enough that I think this may have been one of the first cards of this type created…

Who earned this card most often ?  Usually the person who’d had the worst day at work / school / home before coming to D&D.  These cards were awarded back in the day when we used to drink at D&D, so there was at least one other form of therapy besides getting this sympathy card.

The “Cards” series of posts recalls the special “trophy” business-cards awarded to players during E.G.’s original D&D v.3.5 game several years ago.  This is a weekly post.

    For sure. Like 8 attacks a round. Law of averages.

    Riiiight. I forgot his “on (hand), on, off (hand) , off, on, off, on” attack pattern in a round (with the last on-hand attack coming in at only -4).
