Next week I'll switch over to a writing question I received a while back: How do you form a good writing group? Until then, I hope you enjoy this awesome tale!
As told by DM’s Idea Dump / @shortSorcerer - Bert (changeling sorcerer)
The firbolgs stirred restlessly. Travelers had come to their forest and lit a fire. It mattered not that this fire was a small campfire. The fact remained: This was their forest, and they weren’t going to give anyone the chance to cause a wildfire.
As they reached the camp, they spotted a humanoid cat and fired some arrows at it. It howled from the impact and took cover. A kid came out of a tent and demanded we leave them alone. We laughed at his pitiful attempt to send us away. He looked annoyed, and then he erupted in flame! He was entirely ablaze and somehow fucking cool with it!
Naturally, we ran from the fire-demon-child.
Someone cried out in pain, waking Bert from his sleep. It sounded like either the tabaxi monk or the rogue kitsune. Grumbling softly, he cautiously opened the tent flap to see a group of firbolgs with bows. He closed the tent flap and shapeshifted into an eleven-year-old with a harmonica; then he left the tent.
The firbolgs looked at him but didn’t immediately open fire.
“Hey! Leave us alone,” Bert shouted at them. His attempt at pursuassion failed.
The firbolgs laughed. “No."
Feeling annoyed, Bert invoked tides of chaos. Besides being more intimidating, this also made him catch on fire as wild magic was also invoked. As a result, he caught fire as he glared at the firbolgs. They ran from him in terror.
Naturally, Bert fainted from the burn damage. Low level sorcerers aren’t meant to be on fire.
