Dennis

Aw crap Dennis, 'e pulled a bad one, get over here!



Dennis Because of course there's an NPC, I reasoned that I wouldn't be morally able to play with these cards, unless my DM canon didn't have a way of saving everyone.

I mean... a sidequest would fix any card, it depends on the DM, but I needed my way to "solve" the worst cards for my part, so this is my way! :D

We have Dennis. A great healer of renown, his Goddess tasked him with being a great healer for the city, offering his services free of charge, and She would gift him the ability to cast Wish without fear of weakness, for it to be used to help others.

And then I moved into town.

So, how I call Dennis, is that my ear tears off from the side of my head (see Advanced Earsend), and flies off to find him at his usual home or office. It may comically bat against a door or window to be let out when it takes off, but off we send it in search of our beloved Dennis.

Now, as luck would have it, and as natural response to my repeatedly calling him, you have 30 minutes by the way, that's my gig, you've gotta survive a draw for 30 minutes. But anyways, Dennis has at least four teleports prepped, and a wish spell. So generally speaking, after my ear flies off for a while, Dennis appears in a puff of smoke, something comical happens, and he 'wishes that you had never drawn a card', and *poof*, we're back to before you drew the card, or as though you had never drawn it. And so the day is saved. Unless you're the second person to draw a bad card that day. At which point, Dennis works at the cleric's office two doors down from my shop, every Thursday. He lives in the north end tho, so you could check his regular office too. But yah, Dennis knows what it means when a flying ear shows up, so it's all good. Also I could tie a note to it, like if we needed.


Also, my character happens to have a pile of Unicorn cards, which just happened to have be sitting on a shelf in a cave somewhere, who knew! And yah, that's a desperate times kinda thing, and also a lead-in to having printouts of those with something like 'I was saved from the ______ card with this' on the back, and have those available at faires and conventions and stuff, just to make sure I can save people and they don't get sad and stuff. Gotta be able to save 'em all lol.

But yah Dennis, he's the guy.

Tho all that said, I've also had the opposite, where when someone draws a card from the deck, they don't *want* to be saved. They drew from a deck of many things, and the consequences were accepted, they did not want to be cheesed into safety. And that's all fine and good too, it's up to them at that point.

But yah, I've got Dennis otherwise, he's good.
