Roll on the Random Encounter table

>Be me, forever DM but I don't mind

>Early Pandemic, get bored and start a Friday Roll20 session with a bunch of rando's, request newbies since I like teaching people.

>Waterdeep: Dragon Heist from the top, never run it before, never played it before, seems pretty sweet.

>Have a group that fluctuates between 4-5 but always civil at the table, good group of people.

>Some drama outside the table but don't involve myself, let them work it out since it isn't related to DND.

>Decide to incorporate random city encounters for some SHENANIGANS

>First mistake.

>Youngest player recently came into money, throws a handful of GOLD COINS on the ground, starts a riot amongst vagrants. Can't go back to that party of the city anymore.

>10. Bird poo splatters on PC's shoulder. Same PC rolls this one THREE TIMES. Hilarious each time.

>13. An elderly NPC is being led forcefully down an alley, a discrete knife held in their back.

>Adopt baby for bar, make other adopted child the baby sitter, no questions asked.

Tonight is my last session with this campaign and this party. Told party to wait until tonight to make any decisions on staying or going for future campaign. First campaign I've ever gotten to finish. Some of their decisions have been questionable, but somehow they have all survived. Most level headed group I have ever played with. I'll miss any of them that decide to leave, and continue to bring shenanigans to any who stay.
