Superstitious dungeoneers

There’s a good post on Dungeons and Digressions about superstitious dungeoneers, which I’m linking to here so that I’ll remember to use it later. These are my favorites:

  • 8. A torch that touches the ground means someone will be injured or killed soon.
  • 9. A bell heard underground is, well, not good.
  • 10. At least one coin should always be left behind when treasure is recovered.
  • 11. If you see a bat you should change your weapon.
  • 22. If someone’s head gets chopped off near you, you should kick it far away lest you suffer the same fate.
  • 25. Knock three times on a shield after discussing someone’s death.

(I’m also a fan of the index card posts.)

Thanks for the shout out - it’s always nice to know someone has found something useful or of interest. :)

Thanks for the inspiration. I’m putting together a weeknight OD&D game, with the intent of running adventures we can finish in 2-3 hours. The index card format should fit the bill pretty well.
