WEIRD: Let’s Play D&D With Weird Al Yankovich


Grab your accordion and your Hawaiian shirt of safety, this week we’re inviting Weird Al to play Dungeons and Dragons.

There are total songs that I’ve solely heard a number of of occasions, however know the Weird Al cowl as in the event that they had been the unique, and different songs that I’ll begin considering of with the unique lyrics and swap over to Al’s and never ensure when the change occurred. He would be the closest factor now we have to a real trendy bard, and some of the pleasant performers on the market. Personally, I can’t wait to see what Daniel Radcliffe does together with his story this November. Until then although, we’ll relisten to his discography and see if we are able to efficiently sneak him into our subsequent D&D session. I’m fairly certain it will be very doable (and enjoyable) to play D&D with…

Weird Al

Usually I make human individuals into human characters. It is smart, they’re human, and so they have human limitations. I nearly did that with Weird Al, however then – to not get forward of myself – I made a decision about half approach by means of that I needed to offer him the Everybody’s Friend feat, however that has a pre-requisite of Half-Elf characters. And so, Weird Al is a half-elf. It took a bit of remodeling, however I feel it was value the additional time.

From there, he’s a Bard, clearly. Nobody who can get us all to like songs once more, and generally greater than the unique isn’t a Bard. And the best way he makes use of it to spoof, make enjoyable of, and parody is extremely Bard-like. Unfortunately, generally Bard’s skills and spells can really feel somewhat bit imply, which isn’t the Weird Al vibe in any respect. But they’re additionally extremely helpful and also you’ll be ‘Vicious Mockery’ing a nasty man anyway. So it’s cool.

I additionally gave him a degree in Warlock. Having a patron most likely feels loads like being caught in a 32-year album contract. The boons and safety is fairly cool, however generally you wish to see other forms of magic.

His feats all lean actually arduous on his efficiency and customarily good popularity. Performer and Master of Disguise undoubtedly reference his stage presence which might embody total costume modifications.

This music is caught in my head now. That’s actually all it took.

You might discover the dearth of any actual assaults or weapons. That was totally on function, however I did goof by not including his +5 unarmed strike with the 1 HP of harm. But apart from his Bardly skills and spells, I’ve a tough time picturing Weird Al selecting up a weapon in earnest. Maybe he would. Maybe your character ought to in a sport. But for our functions, nah. Instead, I made certain he had his trusty accordion and written permission from all the artists he’ll be writing parodies of.

He’s additionally missing in armor proper now, which wouldn’t essentially be your best option in your subsequent dungeon crawl. But I feel the one proper reply right here can be to ask your DM for a particular Hawaiian shirt of safety merchandise. Will it provide you with away? Yeah. But it’s value it for the joke.

How would you make Weird Al for a D&D setting? Would you play D&D with the true Weird Al if given an opportunity? What present, comedian, film, or sport ought to I make sheets from subsequent time? Let us know within the feedback!

Happy Adventuring!
