Shoeless Joe the Dwarf
Our group’s main fighter was an oxe wielding dwarf (actually an
axe welding dwarf but he pronounces it like oxe). On our first adventure we
fought an ogre in the mud. The ogre was taking a mud bath. The dwarf got his
foot stuck in the mud and pulled his foot out one boot less. Later in the day
we fought giant rats in a garbage heap. The dwarf was standing in the garbage
pile and managed to fumble and cut off his own toes from his bootless foot. Now
he is limping and moving even slower than a full toed dwarf in tow, that’s
slow. To complete his bad day he is in combat with another ogre on a bridge
over hot lava. Is there any other kind of lava other than HOT? The ogre knocks
the dwarf out, grabs him and runs off. The rest of the group shuffles their way
slowly and carefully across the bridge spanning HOT lava and chases the ogre.
By the time they catch up the ogre has the dwarf tied up and dangling over a
cliff and demanding a ransom. The picture says it all!
