D&D Inspired Limericks

Today on Facebook, someone posted a limerick based on D&D. This inspired me to write my own:
Allessia was a dwarven cleric of life
Who refused to fight with sword and knife
She called upon her god
“Freya, please give me a nod”
When the Rakshasa said, “Please be my wife!”
Gilfoyle was a young dragonborn man
Who grew up far away from his clan
He threw a rock at the wall
And down, it did fall
From the city he was then banned.
The owlbears came, the situation was dire
When they killed a boy and his sire
Agnes the farm-wife, a-lass
Had a bloodline of dragon, brass
Her magic awakened, she burned them all in fire.
When the king’s coded message was broken
And the party went after the magic token
The gold dragon they freed
Not a drop did they bleed
All thanks to their trickster rogue, Moken.
A hero’s death is a terrible thing
Especially on a mission for the king
Forgetting won’t be hard
Because of the bard
We all just wish she could sing!
It seems this is one of my more popular pages, so I thought I’d add a few more. Enjoy!
The battle at the tower was a classic
With swords, bows, and lots of magic
Lena, an inquisitive rogue
Whose attire was in vogue
Yet, her death was more than tragic!
Flint, the dwarf, was in it for the fight
He faced ten kobolds alone, one night
At short range, ten bows bent
You’d think to Hehl he’d be sent
But only one arrow hit, to his delight!
Taeko wasn’t a tabaxi as everyone thought
She kept herself hidden with the cloak she bought
With her bow she was great
Sending foes to their fate
Until she faced the evil witch and her lot.
