"You attempt to pickpocket the man, but accidentally pull down his pants instead."

"You reach out to push the orc off the bridge, but instead lightly caress his back. He is uncomfortable."

"You try to stab the guard, but you stab your crotch instead. Roll fortitude."

"You say your name is Bob and not Jim. Your lie is misinterpreted and they now believe you are a serial killer."

"You swing your axe, but it slips from your fingers and sails across the room."

"In an attempt to dodge the incoming arrows, you jump into the swarm.”

"You bull rush the enemy but miss and jump off of the cliff."

"You try to land on your feet but you land on your sword instead."

"While providing first aid, your hand slips and you stab him in the heart. He dies instantly."

Statue of a Kore

The expression of the face, intricately sculpted and styled hair, and closely curving chiton are remarkable, and in many places the coloured paint survives, as well as the decorations of the chiton; rosettes, swastikas, stars, and meanders.

Parian marble, found in Merenda (ancient Myrrhinous), Attica.

Stood above the grave of Phtasikleia, and was sculpted by Ariston of Paros.

550-40 BC, Ripe Archaic Style (NAM Athens, 4889)
