DSA ("Das Schwarze Auge"; english version as TBE, "The Black Eye") is a Pen&Paper RPG set in a high fantasy world. For those of you who are unfamilliar with Pen&Paper: You can create your character, whose traits, stats and skills are noted on a character sheet. The game master then leads the players through various pre- or selfmade adventures. And since it's lead by a human being instead of a computer the possibilities are endless. Several hundred skills can be combined in countless ways, you can travel whole continents and meet many races (most of which playable) and work your way through society. Or you could just challenge the next dwarf to a drinking contest... Your choice.
The most well known Pen&Paper RPG is "Dungeons and Dragons". In contrast to D&D though DSA uses the range of the D20 (20-sided die) in reverse order. The lower the number, the better the outcome. 1 is critcal success, 20 is critical failiure.
In this series I'm going to illustrate our party's funniest or most iconic moments. And since we're not exactly the most common adventurers, we have quite a few of those...
This is when we had just met Tim (Timmanuil
- screw that, nobody can speak or write that name...), played by Gep65
. He's a wizard (crystallomancer) and blacksmith (focused on fine mechanics) and wants to build mechanical golems.
He doesn't bother with picking locks - he just disassembles them - or in this case, the door's hinges...
