Dungeons and Dragons: Kenyon Edition

Curse of Kenyon.png

Lord Graham Gund of Castle Kenyon sits atop his sacred Hill, glass in one hand, 2020 plan in the other. Tonight, he’s hosting a gala inside the Kenyon Athletic Center, his ballroom and playpen. A week ago, a single crow tapped upon your window, a crisp envelope caught in its beak. The bird presented you with an invitation to Lord Gund’s weekend extravaganza. Are you brave enough to attend? Grab your polyhedral dice and start rolling to find out…

The Title of Your Memoir According to Your Major

Majors. Everyone has one, maybe even two. Some say they are the most important part of who we are here, at this sweet liberal arts college. They paint a picture of what we like to study, which professor’s house we are desperate to get the invite to and even help with the post-grad job search (maybe). One day, we may look back on all this and use the stuff we learned here to tell our stories. Honestly terrifying to think one of your classmates would have the ego to write a memoir, but definitely not surprising. Well, if you are thinking about divulging your secrets, deepest desires, unconventional childhood or career trajectory, check out these titles for inspiration.

“What is done for fun can be fatal, and feel forever sad.” –A Friend’s Mother

What is Done For Fun

Hello everyone it is I, the Party Goblin. I’m the guy who most recently tricked too many people into believing that Sean Decatur was going to retire after I wrote a late April Fool’s post in which he was replaced by a raccoon. That of course was the endgame of a raccoon-led coup bent on spreading rodent rule across the campus. I didn’t get a lot of sleep the night before.

I’ve discovered through my time at The Thrill that I don’t actually need to come up with ideas. Instead I just make jokes to my Editor-in-Chief Erica Christie, and she comes back and tells me that’s what I’m doing. That’s how I ended up staying for two hours–as long as I possibly could have–at Shock Your Mom, Kenyon’s most naked and clammy party.
