Playing dungeons and dragons with a dragon.

This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.

Playing dungeons and dragons with a dragon.

So as a few of y'all might know already, I'm a humongous nerd. And I love to play dungeons and dragons with my family, and we almost always bring a Beardie along for the ride, so I figured it'd be fun to share some photos of Daisy hanging out with us at our last Session. :lol: [Click image to enlarge]

Hi there,

I have a friend who plays too. Maybe you'll find a way to incorporate daisy into the gameplay :) might add a fun element.

"You turn a corner and face... a bearded dragon."
"A giant bearded dragon?"
"No, a normal sized one."
"Awww, that's cute. I bend over to pick it up."
"Roll for outcome, please."
<Rolls a 2>
"There's a puff of dust-colored smoke and suddenly you're looking UP at the bearded dragon. You've been turned into a cricket."
"RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!!!!!"

:D

Oh yes, my character's Familiar often takes the form of a Beardie. Or a duck. Lol

I Recently started Dungeon Mastering my own campaign and I actually had this be a random encounter, in which one of the players was nearly eaten by a rather friendly but hungry Beardie. It was fun, my players enjoyed that little round. :)

It went a little something like this:

"Roll a perception check, You see in the bushes a small lizardlike creature basking in it. Despite the fact that the shadowfell has no sun, it appears to be happily basking. What are you going to do?"
"It's giant I'm guessing?"
"Nope! It's a normal sized, adorable little Beardie."
Lyklore (a eladarin-elf cleric) "well then," he walks up to it and pets it "aww, what a cute little harmless lizard! You're so cuuuute!".
The Beardie gives a sideways head Glare at you.
"Then When you petted it, a huge puff of smoke erupted from around it. The dragon is now 50 feet tall it seems, but wait, the rest of your party is also giant! You are now 2 inches tall!."
"The dragon starts eyeing you hungrily, you wonder if 2-inch tall elves are a staple food for ShadowFell Beardies."
Lyklore Panics and scurries up his friend's boot.
The Beardie follows and jumps up to grab the tiny elf with its tongue.
It head bobs in triumph.
My character, a shadow mage (sorcerer subclass) eventually casts a spell that regains Lyklore's size, now at normal size, but with a adorable Beardie gnawing on his arm.

I loved playing out that encounter. :lol:

Another encounter in my campaign was when a NPC mentioned they had a Animal that they needed to rehome, and that animal was the same Beardie from before.
Another PC decided to adopt the dragon and make him her familiar, Named Loki, toootally not based off of any existing animals or anything....

I would love to try bringing my girl for a game. I've never had a regular D&D group, the one group I do people bring pets (i.e. dogs). Maybe when it's summer next year I can try to bring Devlyn along. It could be nice to have a game outside in the shade for humans and a sunny spot for a dragon on a leash.
1 dragon Devlyn, 1 tree frog Charlie, 1 cat Greysie, & lots of plants
