Every Party’s Worst Nightmare

I love the wand of wonder. Because it makes the routine exceptional. It’s just fun, even if it disrupts the game. I’m a believer that what makes encounters memorable after the fact is when things don’t go as planned, when the exceptional happens. You can’t force a string of natural 20s or natural 1s, nor can you plan a moment of surprising tactical genius. But you can introduce the wand of wonder or the deck of many things.
