Hope Eventually arrives soon
Mon Feb 12, 2018 14:08

When the older girl walked up to the table Parker swallowed a bit. He'd hoped it hadn't been loud. He knew from talking with Gary that Gary had collected quite the array of students to play, for some reason Parker just hadn't assumed it would be older girls. In Parker's mind, DnD was pre-teen boys sitting around drinking soda, and to be honest, that's what he had expected.

As she walked about the table Parker leaned over the Gary as he held onto his Dwarf, "Who did you get to join Gary? How..." Before he could start she brought out her own bag. As she opened them Parker knew he was in for something else, her dice looked beautiful, like a still lake on a moonless night.

Parker sat there as her words of Geek ran through his head. His parents had said they were nerds in school, and Parker had not really thought about if he was one or not, but he had not played before.

Hi, I'm Amber. Amber the Valorous.
Parker was about to stick our his hand when she continued. He began to realize when she looked down at her sheet and said she was muscular that she was talking about her character not herself. Parker was impressed. She knew what she was doing, and from the sounds of it was a fighter. He also felt amazingly uncomfortably out of his element. He wasn't sure what his element was, but right now, it was not this, and both Gary and "Amber" were in it.

"Hi Amber, I'm..." Parker paused trying to think of a name on the spot and could only think of John which didn't sound very Dwarf-like, "Unnamed, as I've never played before so am unsure of how to. But I am a Dwarf who is here to help you all heal." Parker held up his figure, "I also have a big hammer to smite people. That's what clerics do right? Smite?"

Parker put down his character's figure and looked at the character sheet in front of him.

"How long have you been playing Amber the Valorous?" Parker asked, hoping she'd drop some good knowledge for him to pick up in the process.
