The Gazebo

The Gazebo
This is a story of a DM and a paladin (Eric) during a game of AD&D
(true story).


DM: You see a well-groomDM garden. In the middle, on a small hill, you see a gazebo.
ERIC: A gazebo? What color is it?
DM: (Pause) It's white, Eric.
ERIC: How far away is it?
DM: About 50 yards.
ERIC: How big is it?
DM: (Pause) It's about 30 feet across, 15 feet high, with a pointDM top.
ERIC: I use my sword to detect whether it's good.
DM: It's not good, Eric. It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Pause) I call out to it.
DM: It won't answer. It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Pause) I sheathe my sword and draw my bow and arrows. Does it respond in any way?
DM: No, Eric. It's a gazebo!
ERIC: I shoot it with my bow (rolls to hit). What happenDM?
DM: There is now a gazebo with an arrow sticking out of it.
ERIC: (Pause) Wasn't it woundDM?
DM: Of course not, Eric! It's a gazebo!
ERIC: (Whimper) But that was a plus-three arrow!
DM: It's a gazebo, Eric, a gazebo! If you really want to try to destroy it, you could try to chop it wih an axe, I suppose, or you could try to burn it, but I don't know why anybody would even try. It's a @#%$*& gazebo!

ERIC: (Long pause - he has no axe or fire spells) I run away.
DM: (Thoroughly frustratDM) It's too late. You've awakenDM the gazebo, and it catches you and eats you.
ERIC: (Reaching for his dice) Maybe I'll roll up a fire-using mage so I can avenge my paladin...

At this point, the increasingly amusDM fellow party members restorDM a modicum of order by explaining what a gazebo is.

Is Magic Armor Lighter Than Standard Armor of the Same Type?
Yes indeed
No, never!
In 1E yes, in 2E no
Only for encumbrance
Of course it is
Not in my world
