Jason: My queen has line of sight on your knight. Marcus: Roll for initiative. I got six. Jason: Rats. I got four. Marcus: My knight avoids your queen by moving to this space behind a pawn. Jason: Roll to see if you trigger a trap. Marcus: Crud. I rolled a one. Jason: The square was booby-trapped with poison gas! Your knight takes (roll roll) twelve damage! Marcus: He's dead. Can my bishop resurrect him? Jason: You didn't train that spell, remember? You gave your bishops rank-two kind decursing. Marcus: Did I really? I'm so stupid. Paige: Norman chess isn't nerdy enough? Jason: Is anything, really? Marcus: Oh, wait - my knight had a cloak of poison protection! Woohoo!
