D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4

Day 4: First dragon your character slew (or some other powerful monster).

It was hardly the accomplishment of a lone adventurer. Rather, it was the combined efforts of a barge full of travelers crossing Whyestil Lake. A pair of mercenaries, one experienced and the other with a blade that had tasted naught but the blood of goblins thus far, were seeking treasure in the Vesve Forest. Alongside a dozen or so other passengers and the scant guard detail that the ship's captain had hired for the journey, the pair successfully fended off the fearsome attack of a dragon turtle. Though they were unable to slay the beast, it only managed to eat half of the barge's passengers before it fled below the surface, and the ship arrived at its destination otherwise unmolested. They were heroes for the day.

I'm not sure how that happened exactly, except that my dad was rolling for a lot of guards who were attacking it at the same time my character was. Rolling that many d20s was bound to produce some critical hits, right? Honestly, he probably fudged the dice a bit as well, or at least had it retreat earlier than it needed to. Still, at the time it was a huge accomplishment.
