I first played DnD as an adult. My then boyfriend (and now husband) introduced me to his gaming group and we started a new campaign. At some point our Gnome Rogue character found a Rod of Wonder with the command word 'Balo'. Great things happened: he shrunk himself, turned himself green or purple, or sometimes did something useful like send a really buff demon to the Ethereal Plane. Nine years later we are still playing the same campaign, and still use the Rod of Wonder every time we game. It's one of the most delightful things to see our Gnome roll his D100 and wait for the effect, however painful it might be. This tea is an ode to Chaos and the wonder of taking a chance.
