Episode 844: The Parent Trap

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

For a spot of fun in any roleplaying campaign: Introduce the embarrassing parents of one of the PCs. After all, everyone has parents, right?

And a word of advice to players: Make sure you specify orphan on your character sheet.

(And a secret additional word of advice to GMs: An orphan is merely someone who doesn't know where their parents are at the moment.)

(Secret additional bonus advice for GMs running games where the PC manages to establish that yes, their parents really are dead: Zombie. Vampire. Lich. 'nuff said.)
