Welcome to all things D and D Story dungeon, where we share amazing Dungeons and Dragons stories with you every two days now, heading inside the dungeon we have how the jealous dragon born ruined a friendship. Tom and Trickle were the best of friends. Drink cool. The dragon born cleric of Lira was the strong one, while Tom, the human barred, was the weird one. Even so, these two were inseparable. So when the call came for adventurers to travel to distant lands to defeat a great death curse plaguing the land, they answered the call together. They traveled to the land of chilled and began their great adventure. Along their travels, they met 1/2 ling by the name of snarl. It is worth mentioning that snore was raised by wolves in the wild. So his views on the world around him were simplistic, to say the least in his mind. You are either predator or prey. You either eight or were eaten. So when during the course of the trio's first big fight together cool whilst being chewed on by a T. Rex was unable to get any of his spells to successfully land, Tom managed to deal a devastating amount of damage to the creature while it was distracted, withdrew goal in its mouth. But it is worth noting that Drew Cool actually landed the killing blow on this monstrosity and not Tom. This is important. Snarl walked up to Tom, pointed at him in full view of school and said, Strongest. This was when things began to go downhill between Tom and your goal. For the next few weeks and months, Snore would stick to his view that Tom was stronger than Joe Cool, and Tom would playfully go along with it over time. This started wearing Andhra Cool. It made him frustrated and jealous emotions that only got worse over time. They still fought side by side through many fights. But a specific pair of fights went on to change the course of these two characters. History forever. However, Before we get to that, there is something we must discuss. At one point during all, this juggle met a beautiful elven woman. Her request when they located the soul longer the source of the death curse. She wanted him to let her study it for a while. He flat out refused, angry at his indignation, the woman revealed her true self as the great Litsch Ville Indra. She attempted to use this revelation to intimidate him into bending her will as she was not going to be turned down so quickly and so easily by a mere dragon born juggle, however, was not going to be swayed. Vallin Dra was not pleased, and after he left, she sent spies to follow the party and find a way to break the spirits of this dragon. Born during the course of a fight. After this trickle became surrounded by enemies, Tom doing his best to think quickly and save his friend cash shatter centered on drug cool. While Tom's assumption that drug would physically survive the act was correct, it was Drew ghouls, emotional state that took the biggest hit here. His best friend had just intentionally dropped a spell on its head. Part of him understood why Tom made the choice. He did, but he still felt betrayed. Shortly after this, Solyndra, having learned a lot about the social dynamics of the party, sent a red major after the party with the instructions Dick Eolas, friend During the fight, Tom was knocked out and was bleeding fast, Trickle still holding his grudge against Tom Cast Spare the dying instead of your wounds. As he passed, he stated. Next time, watch where you cast your spells and rushed to join the fight. The maid seen the opportunity Misty step past the party to end up next to the unconscious Tom. With one swift movement, he staff Tom through the chest. Immediately after Tom bled out and died, his soul was sucked into the so long while the rest of the party did more in the death of Tom. No one knew just how badly this was going to hurt Rygel. In the months following the guilt of being directly responsible for the death of his best friend tour await him internally. As this mental state slowly spiralled into depression, he's used to. The party slowly declined as well. His difficult spell rotation shifted from healing the party to throwing damage as much as he could. Months after this, when deep in the bowels of the Tomb of Annihilation, things came to a head. One of the newer members to the party, Lex, a war forge wizard with a pension for making the smart move but not the wisest move made a drastic mistake. You see, prior to the events above, some hags had acquired the blood of a few members of the party. The affected members were Tom Driscoll, snarl and family adore Vin Fighter, who has gone through some serious stuff at this point as well. But that is another story altogether. As they turned into Send a Stairwell, Drew Cool came face to face with Tom, albeit a smaller, weaker, pitiful version of him created from the blood of Tom Trickle. Not yet processing what was happening attempted to hell Tom to no effect. The rest of the party had not yet realized what was happening as they could see Jer Cool but didn't see. Not Tom, not Tom only had memories up until his death, and he had since been stuck in this dungeon with not Trickle, who told him, Essentially everything. You're cool, new and thought not Tom. New Juggle. Let him die over something so seemingly petty and the words out of not Tom's mouth cut deeper than any knife. Good. You let me die. Trickle, frozen in shock and fear had no response to not Tom's next actions, not Tom began stabbing at him with a small dagger. Lex, who had just come around the corner, saw not Tom's actions and made the logical next step. He stabbed and killed not Tom, this central goal into an intense rage. See, in his mind, Tom was back somehow. And now Lex, who he already didn't like it all, killed his best friend. So dry cool went charging after Lex, while the centre Palin Sedita tried fruitlessly to hold him back, Lex cast invisibility on himself to hide from the rage fueled dragon born while the rest of the party got pulled into combat with a crowd of Mondrian's. After a few seconds and watching his good friend Anders get pin cushioned by arrows, Driscoll snapped out of it and assisted the party. Sedita, who had continued to defend Lex due to their history together, went up to juggle afterwards and asked him if he was good. Now, heavily indicating the sudden feud between him and Lex, who was still not visible to the party, Trickle turned to the center and stated very bluntly, If I see that wizard again, I will kill him. Sedita was very hesitant about trusting the dragon born at this point due to the words he overheard from not Tom on the staircase and his intent to kill Someone who studied have found an extremely important asset to the group. So when they continue down the steps, Sedita made a point to let drug You'll go first to keep an eye on him on the floor below. The entire room was shrouded in a green mist. Trickle went first to investigate and vanished into the mist. He walked into a cage hidden from the party and met, not trickle, where not Tom was a lesser version of himself. Not Trickle seems stronger, as if he was justice. Healthiest, wriggle himself, not Trickle began tearing into Joe Cool about how he was not worthy of his own powers. How he was pathetic for living as he had after Tom's death drew cool. Drop his weapon, one bestowed upon him by his goddess herself. Unable to fully contain the mixture of emotions swirling inside him, not Trickle, picked up his sword and activated something Driscoll was unable to do since the floor above, not Trickles spoke of all drug ALS failings to live in the memory of Tom reaching forward, not Trickle, attempted to cast a spell on Google, who was unwilling to allow this. Even now, you refuse to see the truth? Not sure, Cool said. Disappointed, Lee Trickle pathetically swung with his bare fist. Unable to make any kind of solid contact on the visitor before him, not, Trickle began to shine, a set of golden armor gleaming with every color imaginable and some unknown solidifying in juggles mind that this not true goal was more worthy to Lira than he. Waas drew ghouls, mind began to break, not trickles. Some of the guardian of faith in the figure of Tom Driscoll was unable to successfully defend himself at this point, and slowly, is health dwindled all the while, not trickles words Dunmore than the Guardian ever could. He slumped down onto his knees, his entire existence, slowly coming apart in his own mind. Grief and guilt, self hatred and loathing all crammed into his mind. All this was wearing away at his mind and heart, not trickles, stabbed the sword into the ground next to juggle and step back trickles last remaining health drained away as the spectral Tom looked on in his coma. Lira came to visit, she admonished her cool heavily. He had strayed from the path, let himself become absorbed so much and how he failed his friend that he was no longer living for him but almost living despite him. Tom was a bard, and Lira took great joy in a song, and the joy brought the world. Tom Song didn't die with him. Lira began to raise her voice. It lives on in you. But when you live in anger and hatred, you are silencing a beautiful song. So Lira gave him a choice. Will he right his wrongs and live honorably? For Tom's sake, Trickle accepted. What choices did he really have? Trickle awoke still on the cold stone floor where he had collapsed. Not true goal was still there and reached his hand out to help him up. As he stood, the gleaming armour started to fade from not true goal, as it did so. It formed around your goal instead, not trickle, slowly withered away and you're cool. Felt strong, the healthiest he had in a long time. In the following hours, drew Cool, took his newfound strength and determination and lead his party into the chambers of religious Iraq, where he was instrumental in killing him. Struggle could feel Tom Song with every beat of his heart, and he vowed that as long as he lived, so would Tom's memory and song. Thanks for listening to all things D and D story done, Jim.
