What is this world coming to when you can't even have a good game of D&D without being attacked by Rogues who take your swords!

Well, and their car, playstation, and wallets.

It was a critical hit.

An upstate game of “Dungeons & Dragons” went from fantasy to nightmare when a real-life gang of bandits crashed the party and robbed the players of their wallets, phones — and swords, according to news reports.

A trio of marauders armed with a shotgun and a “machete-style knife” entered a Niagara Falls home through an unlocked side door Monday night and interrupted three men and a woman playing the classic tabletop role-playing game, the Niagara Gazette reports.

One of the rogues held the gun to a player’s neck and demanded the adventurers hand over their phones and wallets — while the thieves also helped themselves to a Playstation 4, “several swords” and the keys to one victim’s car.

“We have your IDs, we know where you live — call the police and we will kill you,” they told the woman before absconding with the loot, according to the Gazette.

I am an avid player and DM for over 25 years, and all I can say is should a roll better on your Perception check.

If they had swords then they were LARPing, which is very different from DND, what dorks!

On the bright side maybe that Guy will buy an Xbox one instead!

They should've casted a Barrier.

It was in a home.

My old DM had a man-cave we used to play in. It had several swords and a really nice axe on the wall.

I'm old, but I knew several guys in that scene who had decorative swords and other such they didn't use for gaming. So maybe the alpha geek was hosting and the robbers took the home decor.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the thieves rolled a multiplier and successfully executed an ambush.

That sucks. Pretty sure a pet dog increases your castles defenses, primarily through detection and perception passives innate to their species.
