I can only offer my continued regrets that my availability and Kain's are mutually exclusive. If my other thing on Saturdays falls through, I'd love to join you guys.
Look just kill and eat your friends and join my game already. I'll even let you start at 2nd level.

I have no idea what I did that was unexpected. Everything seemed so straight forward.
Well first off I thought you'd go south first. Then I thought maybe you would coup de grace or knock extra-unconscious the guy in the bed, rather than just try to steal his jewelry right off him. THEN I thought you either running away, possibly joining with Margaret to ambush Krusk and Nebin before they could leave the island, or else get knocked out and...well...that would be spoilers.
You turning around to fight back, half-dead, and succeeding was the last thing I expected. Granted I stupidly failed to make use of Krusk's rage in any instance and Nebin simply failed to prepare any real combat spells aside from his acid splash
cantrip and color spray
, but it still managed to be both the most unexpected twist and overall leading to perhaps the most fun adventuring to come. But I think the best part is that it's a result of the player's action, not something I just made
happen. Storytelling as Gygax intended, I think.
