If Dogs Had D&D Characters

Warning: Geeky Entry follows, no library content

In our spare time, Mr. R and I have conversations that are amusing to us, but others might find baffling. In some cases, it is because we are married and that is what happens when you spend too much time with another person. In other cases, it is the meeting of two geeks which creates conversations only other geeks would appreciate.

This past weekend, we discussed what D&D stats our mastiff would have if he was a D&D character. This is what we decided:

Race: Dog
Class: Warrior Mastiff
Armor Class: 2 (because he is a huge baby)
Wisdom: 3 (he just does not understand a lot of things)
Intelligence: 8 (now if he would just listen, that would be something)
Charisma: 10 (I mean look at that cute face!)
Strength: 18
Dexterity: 7
Constitution: 17 (solid as a rock)

He would need some fancy armor to make up for having such a low armor class.

–Jane, wonders what people who are not such geeks talk about for fun

    How ’bout dem Dolphins? Might go all’a da way this year!

    Oh, and could you move the horse off of the couch for the next picture? I can’t see the dog behind it.

    I was going to argue with you about whether low armor classes indicated better defenses, until I remembered that they changed the system in later editions.

    Pause to consider that a) I was going to try to out-geek you with rpg stats, and then b) that I was wrong because I rely on earlier editions of D&D.


    Also, I wish all my geek friends lived near me, so we could hang out. And be geeky. And drink beer.

    I hate to admit that I know this. And it has been a while since I have looked at one of the books so you will have to forgive me if I am wrong. But I believe a character with an intelligience of 8 has to be able to speak so I think you are a little high with that number.

    But a charisma of only 10!? Look at that face! That should be much higher. He definitely has lots of charisma.

    Jenica, you said my two favorite things: drinking beer and being geeky. Wish you were closer!

    Mr. R, agreed that he is cute and could sway people with the cute, but he is not smart enough to use his charisma to influence, hence the low score. About the talking, I am not sure about that rule so I will leave that as well. Honestly, that was a guess.
