Dungeons and Date Nights

Dungeons & Date Nights is a series by The Geek Lyfe, where DeAngelo Murillo (aka Darth Mexican) and Alexia Berryhill (aka Tardigrade in Space) get together and play Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition! In order to keep things spicy, we take rules that are either featured in the Dungeon Master’s Guide or homebrews, and throw them into play.

The Story So Far

Meet Quartz, a once human rogue whose entire clan was destroyed by unknown assailants, on her 12th birthday. In her dying breath, a mysterious stranger came to her aid, on the agreement that she would perform three favors in return. Seeing no other option, she agreed.

In return, she found her life restored and was given a dire spider companion, named Q. She was promised to have aid when she seeks her revenge on those who destroyed her people. Before her blood dried on the contract, her body changed into a Tiefling. Her skin tone shifted from olive to a deep, rich red. Three thick, jagged horns grew from her skull. Her teeth sharpened. A tail grew, her eyes turned into a black orbs, and a copy of her agreement was seared into her right arm, detailing the contract in a subscript of Infernal.

Twelve years have passed since that fateful night. Quartz and Q find themselves at the small fishing village of Lowdenheim, for the first time since that night her mysterious stranger appeared and asked his first favor. Having no other choice, she traveled into town and accepted a quest to assist the local lord, Dumas.

Quartz was joined by three other adventurers: a drunken monk named Iron Lion, an over confident Paladin named Tybalt, and the reserved Lo. They arrived at Lord Dumas’s manor, and agreed to safeguard his daughter for a single night, while he and his staff travel to a nearby village on an emergency expedition. Only after a few hours of drinking and eating did they begin to experience odd encounters.

While exploring Lord Dumas’s manor, Quartz finds herself assaulted by unnatural creatures, and fights just to survive from one area of the building to the next. Unfortunately, in order to survive, it meant leaving her companions in a dreadful situation.

Lord Dumas’s daughter, Theodosia, pleads for help and Quartz answers the call. As she investigates her room with her friend Lo, Quartz finds out Lo has been keeping a terrible secret. When Quartz confronts Lo, things go awry…

We also want to give a huge shout out to IV Benjamin Arts for creating a fantastic drawing of Quartz! You can find more of his incredible artwork on Facebook and Instagram!
