    It's interesting to me, how D&D is ostensibly, or at least popularly, "medieval (European) fantasy" when it seems more to take place in an analogue to the early Renaissance, yet with distinctly post-Westphalian concepts and structure. The strange union of late feudal polities and modern-lens political and military writing is unique and in its own way charming.

    From what I remember of most D&D settings, they're freelancers unless they belong to specific organisations which are generally limited in scope and / or area of influence, such as the Knights of Solamnia.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    So for something inspired by KanColle, how did it all conclude?
    It would take too long to summarize the whole sequence of events, but anyway: They destroyed Yathaiocta, the Lovecraftian monstrosity whose emanations allowed shipgirls and all sorts of weird stuff to exist. The "final boss" was IJN Satsuki, who had been the PCs' main NPC ally throughout the whole campaign, and she basically got them to do everything she needed to complete her plot to kill herself and all other things born of Yathaiocta. Only two shipgirls survived: HMS Cyclops, who the PCs liked a lot and went through great efforts to protect, and IJN Kisaragi, who basically blackmailed her sister into ensuring she survived at the end.

    It was pretty ridiculous, but having "bullshit alien abomination powers" at hand allowed me to come up with all sorts of different challenges, and some very spectacular encounters.

    D&D has always been more of a fantasy analogue of the American Wild West with medieval trappings.

    Yeah, after comparing it to Faerun itself and how I've treated them implicitly during my games, that's the answer I arrived at. They're more like superheroes; good guys that work on their own but help law enforcement.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Reminds me of a game where I was trying to climb over a wall. Only needed to roll an 8, failed 5 times in a row, 2 times so bad that I knocked the wind out of myself falling down, wasting a turn.

Is that right?

    One of the homebrew subclasses I was working on was basically done in January's Unearthed Arcana

    I was making a 'Circle of Decay' and they came out with 'Circle of Spores' and tied it to mushrooms for much more thematic fit

    I just wanted my blight droods...
