It’s my signature move.
But all I have is a printer
I could never get a straight answer
It's my signature move.
In fact, there is still no e-quill.
I'm currently running my players through a D&D adventure titled "Curse of Strahd".
Last session, my players found a journal revealing details about the main villain, Count Strahd Von Zarovich. When they acquired it, I passed the adventure book over--opened up to an illustration depicting the journal's pages--and one of the players proceeded to read. After struggling for a bit, he said, "I'm having a tough time reading this cause it's so cursive."
Yes," I responded. "It's the cursive Strahd."
I had that one chambered and ready for weeks, just waiting for the right moment.
What my players don't know is that I'm also going to include a few other bits of flavor for my them to find as they progress through the game:
sitting in a coffee shop with my girlfriend and 4 yr old daughter. kid's looking at the letters on the coffee cups
Kid: Daddy, why are the letters all smooshed together?
Gf: It's called handwriting.
Kid: What's the last letter? I don't remember it...
Gf: It's an "S". Do you know a word that starts with S?
Gf: And why, of all words, did you use "shit"?
Me: I'm speaking in cursive
This happened tonight at dinner.
Wife: "mom and grandma just printed out their boarding passes"
Me: "what's wrong with cursive?"
Brother in law laughed. Wife a gave me a death look...felt so proud
135 lab students over the semester. How many suckers come to me to sign off their work without having their name at the top of their sign off sheets. So.. as a Dad I have my solution:
I ask my students, "Can I write 'Your Name' on your sign off sheet?"...
In a beautiful cursive flourish I write: YOUR NAME
