The all-drow high casualty game continued and two worn rogues and a fighter came across a lovely chest just waiting for them to open it and take what was inside on a bridge made of spiderweb. Hooray!

Three abysmal arcane knowledge checks later, it was evident that not a single one of them had ever heard of such a thing as a mimic and even when the chest attempted (and failed) to attack them... they concluded it was indeed a cursed chest and walked away. Because mimics have a movement speed half of that of a drow they made their unwitting escape at a casual pace. The total loss was 1 hit point and the appearance of competence.

I'm not exactly sure who to pity...but it's probably the mimic.

@Sharp-Claw: I would suggest the GM, who didn't get to play with the mimic as she thought she would :(

So... it's a baldurs gate?
I have both 1 & 2 advanced versions (steam sales), but first the character creator scared me (I had no idea what I was doing took me few DAYS of trial and error to make a character) and then tutorial pretty much alienated me so hard. I know it's a classic and probably amazing game, but I don't think I'm ready for it.

hahaha, I do love a hopelessly inept party.

This would be me if I were ever a Rogue type that people depended on for perception....

@Guest: Actual straight up Dungeons & Dragons in this case :) But yeah, I can see Baldur's Gate character creation being a bit overwhelming (but the game is good, I promise)

@screamingViking: That is the best party, let's be real. Just a bit hard to prepare for, as a DM.

@Trewestriandta: In the best of cases there are other team mates who can help you out. Or, like in a game that I'm playing, the people with the worst perception stats (yours truly being one of them) keep rolling like gods whenever it's perception time. And only perception time.
