INT. SOMEWHERE ON THE INTERNET - NIGHT

ROGER, tonight's Dungeon Master, sets the scene for the party's campaign.

ROGER
Reunited and eager for more adventures, your party sets out to retrieve the legendary—

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Wait, before we start, did you see the homebrew cleric domain I sent you?

ROGER
Uh—yeah, it looked fine. But I'm not sure the flavor really fits Zendikar...

LUNA SILVERHAIR
It doesn't make sense for me to still be a cleric of Emeria.

TAM QUICKHANDS
Yeah, Emeria turned out to be Emrakul, and we spent like, a year fighting Eldrazi spawn.

ROGER
Sure—but—there's angels on Zendikar, so why wouldn't you just worship one of—

LUNA SILVERHAIR
After seeing her adoptive parents driven insane by the being they once worshiped, Luna has resolved to only trust the things that have never let her down.

ROGER
Right—um—those being…

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Her cats.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Besides, Van got a familiar, why can't I?

ARCHMAGE VANARESS, WINDSEER OF ONDU
Archimedes, my faithful companion! Prince of falcons, noblest of—

ROGER
Okay, fine, as long as we can start.

Reunited and eager for more adventures, your party sets out to retrieve the Sword of Light and Shadow, an ancient weapon of unimaginable power. The hooded figure in Sea Gate informed you it is currently held by the vampires who infest a nearby sky ruin. Armed with this knowledge—

...You okay there, Justin?

JUSTIN
Yeah.

ROGER
You've been kinda quiet. Have you rolled a new character?

JUSTIN
Yeah.

ROGER
This character sheet just says... "Warrior." Did you mean Fighter?

JUSTIN
No.

ROGER
What's his backstory?

JUSTIN
He's the twin brother of my last character. They had an unbreakable bond and developed a special twin-style of martial arts together. But now his brother is dead, so he'll never use it again.

TAM QUICKHANDS
I said I was sorry!

ROGER
Armed with this knowledge, you set out for the sky ruin.

Everyone make a perception check.

TAM QUICKHANDS
5.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
4.

ARCHMAGE VANARESS, WINDSEER OF ONDU
A 12, forsooth!

ROGER
Justin?

JUSTIN
I fail.

ROGER
The Roil has shifted the land since you were last here. The journey to the sky ruin will not be easy, as you—

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Wait, my familiar rolled 26.

ROGER
...Following the cat, you discover a pass through the rough terrain, and arrive below the floating sky ruin.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Good job, Catsandra!

ROGER
The ruin hovers impossibly overhead. How do you proceed?

TAM QUICKHANDS
Van, don't you have a spell scroll of Fly?

ARCHMAGE VANARESS, WINDSEER OF ONDU
No need for that, my stealthy friend. We shall fly on Archimedes' wings! I gather my power, and cast Enlarge!

ROGER
Enhanced by Zendikar's chaotic magic, the spell grows Archimedes large enough to carry the whole party to the ruin above.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Sweet.

ROGER
You arrive at the entrance to the twisted maze of ruins. Somewhere deep inside, a vicious bloodchief clutches the Sword of Light and Shadow… and waits.

TAM QUICKHANDS
It's like a maze? Can we fly over and look down into it?

ROGER
...Okay, technically yes, but… hold on.

You fly 300 feet over the top of the maze. Looking down, you see the twisted corridors of the ruin, open to the sky above, and culminating in the bloodchief's throne room.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Well, this will be easy.

ROGER
But, you notice a shimmer in the air. The entire ruin is surrounded by a violent, fluctuating wall of air, like a dome. If Archimedes flies in, his wings will be torn apart.

Realizing the way is impassable, you resolve to return to the entrance and fight your way through—

TAM QUICKHANDS
I jump.

ROGER
...What?

TAM QUICKHANDS
I dive off Archimedes into the ruins.

ROGER
You plummet through the wind barrier toward the stone floor. Roll 20d6 falling damage.

TAM QUICKHANDS
At the last moment, I cast Fly from the spell scroll I borrowed from Van.

ROGER
...Fine, you can fly.

ARCHMAGE VANARESS, WINDSEER OF ONDU
Most ingenious!

TAM QUICKHANDS
I fly into the bloodchief's room and steal the Sword of Light and Shadow.

ROGER
He's literally holding the sword in his hands. Besides, he's standing in broad daylight. It's basically impossible to fly into his room without being seen.

TAM QUICKHANDS
I've got +7 to stealth and sleight of hand. Can I roll for it?

ROGER
...Y'know what, sure. If you get a natural 20 on both rolls, you successfully steal the sword. Otherwise, he spots you and multiattacks you to death.

ROGER
You've gotta be kidding me.

LUNA SILVERHAIR
Ha!

TAM QUICKHANDS
I stab him with the Sword of Light and Shadow. He's vulnerable to radiant damage, right?

ROGER
...Yeah. He's dead.

ARCHMAGE VANARESS, WINDSEER OF ONDU
Another relic retrieved!

ROGER
You return to Sea Gate with the sword and impress the whole tavern with your exploits, I guess.

I want everyone to know I worked really hard on that dungeon.

JUSTIN
Cool. See you all next week.
