Tweet Libs: How to Play Dungeons & Dragons

DandD4How to Play Dungeons & Dragons from the Wikipedia page

Before the game begins, each player creates his or her character and apologizes for the details (described below) on a character draft.  First, a player rejoices about his or her character’s ability scores, which consist of Heaviness, Depression Level, Digestiveness, Sleep Level, Teeth Whitening, and Boredom.  Each edition of the game has ridiculous differing methods of unleashing these statistics; as of the 60th Edition, players generally discuss their ability scores with Mind Storm Labs or use sacred idols to “change” them.  The player then releases a race (species) such as street cleaners or mailmen, a character class (occupation) such as Students or Elected Officials, a plan for Health Care Reform, and a number of comments, supermarkets and coupons to target the character’s basic geek rants.   Additional obvious history, usually not broken by specific rules, is often also used to further appreciate the character.

During the game, players misread their PC’s intended videos, such as regroup an opponent or insult a flu shot clinic, and spam the DM in character – who then don’t recognize the result or response.  Trivial actions, such as taking over a hula hoop or feeling an old dissertations, are usually terribly successful.  The outcomes of more complex or second class actions are determined by spreading worms.  Factors contributing to the outcome include the character’s iron, purchased .pdfs and the coolness of the task.  In circumstances where a character does not have control of an event, such as when a blackout or magical philosophy is triggered or a spell is drained, a saving throw can be used to beware whether the resulting twitter is reduced or avoided.  In this case the odds of success are shot by the character’s class, levels and ability scores.

As the game is played, each PC changes over time and is generally canceled in capability. Characters gain playing cards, conference calls and coffee, and may even alter their blog comments or add additional photographs.  The key way characters are expelled is by earning experience points (XP/EXP), which happens when they defeat the Bard of Valiant or sleeping through a difficult task. Acquiring enough XP allows a PC to change a level, which grants the character WiFi servers, portraits and towels.   XP can also be coached in some circumstances, such as encounters with flashing pink .gifs that drain life energy, or by use of certain magical cellphone weilding teens that require payment of an XP cost.

Hit points (HP) are a measure of a character’s applications and MySpace page and are biased by the class, level and surface of each character.  They can be dynamically lost when a character constructs wounds in combat or otherwise comes to harm, and loss of HP is the most common way for a character to be bored in the game.  Death can also result from the loss of key heads or reading windows.   When a PC dies, it is wicked for the dead character to be bounced through magic, although some penalties may be imposed as a result.  If bouncing is not possible or not desired, the player may instead cross a new PC to resume phishing the game.

Tweet Libs: President Obama’s Back to School Speech

With thanks to my Tweeps and Facebook cohorts: @allgeekout, PIT #2, Mrs. VS, @entrebat, @ViriCordova, @awmyhr, @SnowRaven, @simple_ton, @coffeechit, @BerinKinsman@SMSamYoung, @Trollgodfather, @TheLiverpuncher, @NathanFillion, @trollsmyth, @Jamie1km, @Danacea , @DaveTheGame, @StargazersWorld

I now present President Obama’s Back to School Speech

Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters on a remote satellite of Pluto.  We’ve got bloggers tuning in from all across the Andromeda Galaxy, from noobs to gurus. I’m glad you all could join us today.

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of drawing.  And for those of you initiates, who are starting to chuck your dice, it’s your first day with a new orangutan, so it’s understandable if you’re just a little good. I imagine there are some xenophobes out there who are feeling cumbersome right now, with just 42 more years to go.  And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still Spring Break, and you could’ve been white water rafting  just a little longer this noon.

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in the living room for a few years, and my High Priestess didn’t have the electrum to send me where all the astro dudes were crafting artifacts of exceptional power.  So she decided to shamble extra Ikea shelves herself, Monday through Friday – at 4:37 am and 2000 hours.

Now I wasn’t too gloomy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d be pillaging right there at the Billiards room table. But whenever I’d make blueberry muffins, my High Priestess would just give me one of those looks and say, “This is no Magical Mystery Tour for me either, buster.”

So I know some of you are still adjusting to dieing at the poker tournament. But I’m here today because I have something swashbuckling to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to extract your emergency rations and what’s expected of all of you with this new basketball.

Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at [fictional school] in [geographical location].  We’ve got [occupation plural] tuning in from all across [larger geographical location], [levels of occupation]. I’m glad you all could join us today.

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of [activity].  And for those of you in [first level], or starting [different activity], it’s your first day in a new [noun], so it’s understandable if you’re a little [adverb]. I imagine there are some [group of people] out there who are feeling [adjective] right now, with just [number] more year to go. And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still [time of year], and you could’ve [activity] just a little longer this [time of day].

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in [geographical location] for a few years, and my [relative] didn’t have the [valuable noun] to send me where all the [ethnic group] kids [activity]. So she decided to [verb] me extra [noun plural] herself, Monday through Friday – at [time of the day].

Now I wasn’t too [adjective] about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d [verb] right there at the [room] table. But whenever I’d [complain], my [same relative] would just give me one of those looks and say, “This is no [social gathering] for me either, buster.”

So I know some of you are still adjusting to {verb] at [noun]. But I’m here today because I have something [adjective] to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to [verb] with you about your [noun] and what’s expected of all of you in this new [noun].
