This animated Dungeons and Dragons Story comes from a funny Tomb of Annihilation game in which the players investigated an ancient evil in an underground lake and the encounter something down there they weren't quite expecting. Hope you guys enjoy!

Imagine if they found a way to take Whimsey with them on their adventures, and the friendly side was so strong that even the other half of his personality wouldn't kill them, just everything around them.

Clearly the whole point of this encounter is for the various players to have the two splits talking to them randomly, the two drastic sides of the same coin, to confuse them and put them on edge. While they may know what they're dealing with, its erratic behavior will make it seem drastically more terrifying. But the Dice Gods™ can be so hilarious and fickle sometimes.

Am I the only one who got the Hobbit reference when he said “he’s so precious” in an underground lake.
Aeroldoth3 Month ago
Not a hobbit reference. "He's so precious" is something you say to a cute animal, pet or child. Any creature that's especially cute or adorable.

They're not personalities, both of them are people, they just happen to share a body, and 1 of them shouldn't be allowed to front.

"Eventually the players started to gain a mental connection to the creature" Me: I want to tame it. DM: What? No, you cant do that. Its like really smart Me: I. Want. To. Tame. It. DM: Okay, but you'd need do roll really high, and have high charis- Me: Nat 20 + *Sum good charisma* DM: **Sighs** While the other players grow disdain for the entity, wanting it dead, you feel drawn to it. You start talking to the creature in secret and form a bond with it. So strong that the creature is hesitant to possess you or whatever. Me: Woo! new pet! DM: It is *not* a pet! Me: NEW. PET! DM: Uuugghhh

If I was that DM, I would just not allow you to even try. You can't tame something that's MORE INTELLIGENT THAN YOU.

I wonder if puffin forest will ever realize that you can change what the book says. Nothing says the Aboleth had to have such a dopey personality.

What happens if this crazy aboleth passes on his memories to the next generation? Will they realize what happened, and how this aboleth has a dual personality? Will they acquire the dual personality itself?

It looks cute with his animation, but if you know what an aboleth actually looks like it’s kinda creepy and strange to think about. (Also I would like to petition a Official DnD campaign written with all of Puffin’s characters and his drawing style)

I think the Aboleth would be a lot better with 4 telepathic encounters, where they go evil/friendly/e/f, or vice versa. Someone would roll to see which personality came up first, and then which one they'd see at the encounter.

I have an idea: 1. Gain the ability to travel to this Fiction. 2. Learn magic stuff enough to be able to split a single entity into two. 3. Find the Aboleth. *This* Aboleth. 4. Do the magicy thing. 5. Befriend BOTH Aboleths and make them my pawns for my great scheme of controlling the Multiverses and just having as much fun as possible. 6. Also do some time shenanigans and make Abserd all the classes AND make him legit OP. Also make him a part of my Elite Guard. 7. Blame it all on Gregory. 8. Live forever while doing this across as many Fictions and as many Multiverses as possible.

I frickin hated whimsy. My paladin wanted to save whimsy from sage. We finally killed whimsy, reincarnated him as a gnome cleric. And then, we finally killed sage, murder aboleth. At the end, it was actually a really happy experience. Whimsy now works for us in our adventurers guild as a healer. YAY!

Now imagine playing through the original Tomb of Horrors? There are not one, not two, but three false endings to the module before you get to Accerak (who's one of the most weirdly utilized characters in D&D, I mean, a binder can make a pact with him in 3.5).
