His Dice Hate You as Well!

You may remember the character BJ Hunnicut from the hit televison series M*A*S*H* set during the Korean War at a mobile army hospital. After the war BJ returned home and opened his own private practice. Actually, no, that was Trapper John, BJ died when his helicopter was gunned down as he was leaving the country.

Do you know why BJ died? Because his player rolled two natural ones in a row. The DM felt sorry for him and let him roll percentile dice, but BJ's player rolled a miserable 4%. The dice hated BJ, that's why that character died.

Meatball has dice. Meatball's dice hate him as well. His fortunes changed not so long ago when he snared first place in a Minions of the Monster Master contest. Out of over four hundred entries, Meatball (just BJ at the time) was victorious.

He won a zombie-portrait of himself from our own Biscuit. The two were able to trade recipes and antique cookware and Biscuit drew up some new banner artwork. This coincided with a total blog makeover and is also when BJ transformed into the entity now known as "Meatball". This is the first in a series of "Profiles in Minion Auxiliaries". Meatball is such an auxiliary, and should the Minions need, he is ready to be called up at a moment's notice, snakebite kit at the ready.

Go forth to his blog, check out his wonderful goulash, and partake in his members roll call by subscribing as a follower!
