#RPGaDay 2016 Day 23: Share One of Your 'Worst Luck' Stories
Again, today's post has to do with Hackmaster. This is not so much a 'Worst Luck' story as it is a 'I Rolled Poorly but Everyone Had a Good Laugh" story. After our campaign using the original Hackmaster rules, we started a new one using Hackmaster Basic. I created another thief who had somewhat better skills. One skill that I purchased was monster lore. We were on a boat and were examining an empty crate. The crate had been used to smuggle a giant scorpion, which was now loose on the boat. Our PCs did not know what the monster was yet. I rolled against my monster lore skill to try and deduce what the monster was from looking at the crate. I failed miserably and the GM told me that I definitely thought that the monster was a manticore. We proceeded to run around the boat shouting "Manticore, there is a manticore on the loose!" That became our rallying cry for the rest of the campaign.
