527 – Name Calling

In the D&D games I used to play in back in high school, there was a standing rule that if you called a god’s name often enough on the Outer Planes, they could hear it and might show up to both a) tell you to shut up, and b) unleash their holy wrath upon you. This cropped up a lot when people would say, “Oh, the hell with it!” Hel (one L) is the Norse goddess of death. She never actually showed up, mostly because my fellow gamers and I became very well-acquainted with the follow-up phrase: “I’m saying that Out of Character! I’m saying that Out of Character!”

See you all next time, when we find out what happens when you tick off the God of the Dwarves!

Take care,
