>>26659573Disintegration Finesse( Lords of Madness, p. 44) [General] A creature with this feat can use disintegrate effects to affect smaller, more exacting areas.PrerequisiteDEX 13, ability to cast disintegrate as a spell or use it as a spell-like or supernatural ability,BenefitWhen the creature uses disintegrate on a target, it can elect to disintegrate only portions of the target. Against living targets, it still does the normal amount of damage, but any parts of the target it wishes to spare remain unaffected by the spell. The creature could, for example, disintegrate only a target's skeleton, leaving its skull untouched. It also can voluntarily reduce the amount of damage dealt. Against nonliving targets, the creature can use disintegrate to sculpt and reshape the object in any manner desired, as long as the result is no larger in volume or size than the original object. The quality of the result is determined by a Craft (sculpting) check.SpecialIf your campaign uses the Damage to Specifi c Areas variant rule on page 27 of the Dungeon Master's Guide, a creature with this feat can disintegrate a single part of a target's body, such as its hand, arm, head, eyes, ears, feet, legs, and so on, as long as the target is not killed outright by the damage caused by the spell.NormalA disintegrate effect destroys all of a slain creature, an entire object, or one 10-foot cube of nonliving matter.Bonus functionality: It reduces the time sculpting an object down to a Standard action.

>>26655346Yup, that first one.Our DH party actually tried to blow up a heavily reinforced door, failing, only to conclude it wasn't locked.

>>26663202That's simple >Throw bag of flour at foe>Throw torch at foe.>watch as they die a fiery deathWhat i wanna know is>>26660582>I am no longer allowed to bypass dungeons with thermodynamics
>>26665086Dungeons only typically have a single entrance. If you build a bonfire in the mouth of it, you'll suck all the oxygen out of the entire complex and suffocate all the monsters before even entering.
>>26665202Really? Who builds their dungeons with a single entrance? I always write in escape routes, or at least half-inch air tunnels, because that kind of thing does happen in real life and get miners killed.
>>26665268Sure, if you know about it you do something about it, but such things generally aren't specified in adventure modules, and DMs rarely think to counteract it until it's too late.
>>26654793Does this mean if I make an ogre with wizard levels, you'll give me puny things to kill?
>>26660754A -2 sword always comes back.You walk in naked, with no weapons.You still have the ability to pull a sword out of your ass at any time.

>>26660116I had a lich who spent all his time on fire. Good times.
>Just because the Invisibility spell allows for indirect attacks without breaking does not mean I remain invisible when dropping flasks of alchemist's fire on an orc army's encampment from the air>Using Ghost Sound to blare "Ride of the Valkyries" while dropping alchemist's fire on an encamped army while invisible rather defeats the purpose of "stealth bombing">I am not allowed to complain when 80% of the loot we could have gotten winds up destroyed when we burn the place to the ground>I will not exploit the share spells ability to circumvent the limitations of Imbue Familiar With Spell Ability by sharing Arcane Spellsurge so my familiar never actually expends the imbued spells>Nor will I use the above exploit to cast Wings of Flurry so many times that I reduce an entire flock of vrock demons to fine red mist before I've even finished rolling 3/4 of the damage>No matter how scary the basilisk is, I will not hide in the corner under cover of invisibility while my petrification-immune summons do all the fighting
>>26666026Even with the silliness of paying Ride of the Valkyries, these all seem like common sense things to me. Your DM sounds nofunallowed.
>>26666068>implying anything in this thread is actually things that were disallowed and not just silly things that people are claiming they're not allowed to do

>>26675074Make a cleric.Make his motivation to go out, and claim holy land and build the fortold city on the holy landThe holy land is called Roq'nrawl
>>26675117When we play Dungeon the Dragoning I actually use that concept as my cleric. He's usually a teifling and he usually uses a guitar that is also an axe.The other players give no fucks because I happen to be a fairly competant Cleric who heals or turns undead as the situation is required.DM's jimmies are rustled by this habit though. Which is half the reason I do it.
>>26675139Dude, I have to play that at one point
>>26675255My advice is to choose a band you like, find a song you like, and then base your character's appearance, race, and abilities around that song.For Instance: Dio, A Rainbow in the Dark.Since the song has a bitching keyboard in it I forego the usual axe-guitar and go with a keyboard-cleaver (usualy Keytaur set up, but with a cleaver blade running along one side, a handle and a strap. Its basically a 2 handed sword.)The name of the song is about a Rainbow in the Dark, or an Oxymoron as Dio himself called it. So my tiefling had black skin with irridescent scales and tufts of multicolored feathers on his wrists and neck. The song itself is about a guy pining for his love and dealing with feelings of abandonment and hopelessness so my Cleric was searching for the promised land and focused on helping others. His back story involved being seperated from someone he loved.You get the idea. Different band, different songs and you can take the same concept and do radically different things to it.Doesn't even have to be metal, you can use other genres of music. (provided lyrics are involved.)
>>26675553Neat.I will start searching for songs that'd make a decent character.
>I cannot convince the party to abandon the main quest to become a gypsy caravan again.>I cannot sell potions, especially if they don't do anything.>If my class doesn't get access to the spell prestidigitation, I can't have it.>Especially if I have a high Craft(Alchemy) check.>Same goes for mage hand.>If I play a gunslinger, I am limited to either one or two guns, not ten.>I cannot have a cannon, just, no.>I cannot attempt to steal a cannon by having skeletons infiltrate and kill the crew.>Skeletons no longer fit in the barrel of a cannon.>The breech of a cannon is not large enough for a skeleton to jump out of.>My familiar is not to be used as the party's blacksmith, even if it is better than the NPCs>My familiar can no longer have a jump check greater than 20.>No more kobold minions, ever.>No, there are no alchemy ingredients here.>Or gunpowder.>There will never be an Apparatus of the Crab, and no, you can't invent it.>If I have to steal my weapon from a military vehicle, it is banned.>No warforged, especially not in a political game.>No more kobolds that could fight and kill a red dragon with brute strength alone.>If there are two armies at war with each other, they will notice when I start selling secrets to both sides.>No more Halfling Rogues, the party tank doesn't want to be upstaged.
>>26675788If you don't mind it not being metal, viva la vida will be great.A cleric who used to run a theocracy, now he's the only remaining worshiper of his god.
>>26676145I could actually use a pre-existing character for that.And I would definitely make a new character for that. It's a good idea.
>>26675074>I am not allowed to use my mage powers to make an Electric guitar that shoots lightningThat's exactly what I'm doing next session with my bard since the GM let me have a guitar which is also a greataxe
>>26676362if your figurative Axe is also a Literal Axe then lightning bolts are mandantory.
>>26654765not exactly not allowed, but very notorious. My group doesn't know the reference, but they love the character.
>>26676378Yeah, my bard is essentially a cross between Val Hallen and Ruel Stroud from Wakfu.
>I'm not allowed to put a gnomish scope on a rifle>especially if the rifle has a magical range enhancement
>>26676568"Look at those foolish adventurers down there, they'll never make it through all the devious traps in my tower. This world will be mi-">Headsplosion.jpg
>>26676591Even funnier if he tied his life to the structural integrity of his tower.
>>26676591It was pretty much that. During the adventure my character was introduced, none of the party even met him. He was too far away for anyone to spot him. Especially since he was in a darkened area shooting down into a lit cavern.
>>26671340The Pilot character was a complete hippie, not a pacifist hippie but his work station was covered in ash trays and cans of booze, he didn't really shave, and never really buttoned his uniform. His best buddy was the navigator who say next to him and by the time the pilot said "Hold this I'm gonna need both hands for this." he had already taken the bottle or can or flask and was holding it and was probably taking a swig. He was infamous for his lack of proper etiquette but he was a damn good pilot. That said it didn't stop the rouge trader from kicking his ass or the tech priest from chasing him across the ship for "Defiling his precious machines."
>>26654765>"Bling Dude" is not acceptable.love it.
>>26660729and a good one at that.
>>26655633>>I'm not allowed to level solid arguments against engaging in the quest the DM has prepared, even if there is no conceivable advantage to the party either in terms of rewards, or our RP goal>>I'm not allowed to sneak into an Emperor's palace and alter his official documents to reflect border changes favourable to our kingdom>>we're not allowed to follow said Emperor, and murder him in an alley, even if he's possessed by an Evil entity>>I'm not allowed to feel sympathy for mooks, and use my skill as a diplomat to argue for their reasonable treatmentI believe I would find these restrictions disagreeable.
>>26655684>>Defeating the 'clever' boss the GM built specifically to be impossible for me to beat using all my guile and abilities should not involve bullrushing him off a cliff then shooting him on full automatic with my sniper rifle every round until he hits the bottom.>>I'm no longer allowed to spend my money on 'drinking, whoring, gambling and pretty, pretty half orcs' when playing a woman.Why not?

>>26656116>Disintegrate cannot destroy the foundations of buildingsIt can't?So what you gotta use fire, explosions, or ice and a shockwave?

>>26685846>>26685915OH BOYHEREWEGOSo by hook, crook, and random chance, I was invited to play an online game of Deathwatch. Before you ask, I don't have chatlogs. My system ate them, and the group disbanded a few months back, so no real chance of recovery.Anyway Deathwatch. At the time I was invited, the group had been reduced to three; the Blood Angel Assmarine (named Astramael, whom I called Bob), a Space Wolf Rune-Priest (named Vargus, codename DUDE!), and an Ultramarine Watch Captain (named Augustus, dubbed Smurf). My first brilliant plan was to concoct an Angry Marine Apothecary that would yell about people about their sissiness even as he resuscitated them. I was most of the way through the process when I learned that another player would be joining as an apothecary, thereby excessing my position. Without skipping a beat, I converted myself (with GM forewarned) into an Angry Techmarine. My bionic of choice was an arm replacement, received to better connect me to the Omnissiah, which didn't stop me from claiming it "REPLACED MY ARM AFTER I FLIPPED OFF A BLOODTHIRSTER AND HE TOOK EXCEPTION TO MY ATTITUDE".Good with machines and crap with my indoor voice, I so began my journey into infamy. Our first assignment was a double: rescue a Novamarine Apothecary (the other new guy, by the name of Nero, designate NERD) and rough up some Eldar bitch creeping around in Imperial territory.
>>26688662"Why the fuck not?" seconded. Just helped a guy make his first ever character who is, pretty much, a rowdy, big-drinking, muscly elf merc whose idea of a good time is arm-wrestling people bigger than him and winning.
>>26693481Polite request: I would like to hear more of this story, if you have the time.
>>26693481So word came down from the Watch Commander that there was an op to be done to rescue a battle brother and kill Eldar scum. The original Kill-Team of Bob, DUDE!, and Smurf was understaffed for the job, so they called out to the Watch Fortress at large for a volunteer to join them. Freshly inducted as I was, I jumped straight on board, as "ELDAR ARE THE XENOS MOST AWARE OF THEIR HERETICAL BEHAVIOR, AND THUS THE MOST FUN TO TOTALLY WRECK". We gear up for the mission, which with its generous Requisition I purchase a mag of Kraken bolts for AP improvements and grenades. Lots of grenades, in both frag and krak flavors. The GM didn't bother making me track them, so long as I wasn't throwing them constantly. I parsed the exact total, and also bought one lucky Nova grenade. I load the grenades into a case for easy carrying and dub it my "boombox".We ship out to the target world, a no-name backwoods agriworld with enough of a PDF to forestall an invasion of 20 Ork Boys for approximately 5 seconds. The Eldar are apparently hiding in an tunnel network below the surface, which is where the witch and her cohorts are keeping NERD. Despite my desire to deep strike directly into the tunnels, we deploy via Thunderhawk near a cave entrance that leads in the direction we're pretty sure we need to go. Not long after we make it in, we hear sounds of combat. Seems NERD was already fighting, since the Eldar stopped paying attention to him long enough for him to slip his bonds and get his fighting gear. We hustle to the fight and see our man pinned down behind some fallen ceiling by several Guardians. Since we weren't hiding for shit, Initiative gets rolled. The Guardians win by virtue of being fruity fucks, and we spend our first reactions hitting the dirt to dodge Eldar fire. I'm up next, so I slide my boombox behind some cover, tell the team to "WATCH THE BOOMBOX" and haul-assedly dive over to NERD's cover. We exchange pleasantries:(cont.)
>>26693770C'mon man, I need more FUCKING LOUD GODDAMN TITTY PUNCHING JUSTICE.
>>26654817>fucking Daves sister>fucking Dave>fuckingWhy lie on an anonymously image board?
>>26693716DONE.>>26693770>SUP NERD, WE'RE HERE TO SAVE YOU.>"Nerd". This coming from a Techmarine.>...Shut up while I fix your cover.Alas, my turn ends and the others have to go first. Smurf hollers about the Emprah's glory while laying down fire with his bolter while DUDE! and Bob charge into CC to lay wildly about the xenos scum. The first few dice rolls favor us, with two of the four assailants already down. The Gm, of course, responds with the other half of the Guardian patrol chasing NERD showing up and shooting at the poor saps behind the rapidly disintegrating rocks. We take minor hits, I attempt to reinforce the plywood sheets that our cover consists of, and NERD pops some shots that down a Guardian. The rest of the team gets scraped while cleaning house, and a bit more uneventful combat mops up the stragglers.Formal introductions and First Aid all around. NERD laments the loss of his reductor, as the Eldar wanted it for some reason that we never explored, to which I reply, "FUCK THAT. WE ARE NOT LEAVING IMPERIAL TECHNOLOGY IN THE HANDS OF FILTHY, DUMB, XENOS SCUM. WHICH ONE DID YOU LAST SEE IT WITH?" NERD appreciates my enthusiasm for recovering one of his tools of the trade, even as Smurf considers it a waste. Our Watch Captain is voted down, however, because we all despise Eldar above all xenos. I collect the boombox, and we retrace NERD's path through the catacombs.Several uninteresting combats (excluding the grenade mis-throw which almost brought the tunnel down on us) pass, and we return to the cavern NERD was held in. The only thing of note is a baffled Farseer, who we summarily beat the shit out of and tie up as a prisoner. Interrogation efforts by the entire squad come up quite dry, so we just keep her secured. I volunteer to guard her while the rest of the squad. My WP and Fellowship both suck, so my continued attempts to pry information from her fail miserably. Once we're alone, though, I lean in close to her and whisper:(cont.)
>In absolutely zero situations am I allowed to use live dogs as weapons.>>There is also a probation on using live halflings as weapons.
>>26693957IT'S COMING GOD DAMMIT I'M TYPING FROM MEMORY.>>26694098>"Hey baby, you want some fuck?"I made sure in advance the other players were aware of all this, just for the moment of magical realm terror right before my goofass line. As the Eldar witch worked to fashion a response, I shouted "TOO BAD, XENOS RECEIVE ONLY DEATH!" and clubbed her to bits with my servo-arm. Smurf was somewhat rightly pissed about that, but I waved it off as her being useless as a prisoner if she wouldn't tell us anything. Opinion was split on the validity of my theory, so we just went looking for more Eldar to kill, since we were short several dozen very elegant corpses.Oddly, I was never expressly banned from guarding prisoners, though we never really took any more, so it never came up.Exploring the tunnel network was a bitch. It took about 5 rolls just to see if we got any closer to accurately mapping the underground clusterfuck, and constantly blundering into tiny, unsupported Guardian patrols only stretched things out. A session break allowed us to refill Fate, so I won't complain, but I was actually low on frags towards the end. Finally we run across something interesting:A goddamn 35 Magnitude Howling Banshee horde. In other words, all the elegant corpses we thought we'd wasted just getting here. Dice bounced across the digital table as each person hoped they weren't the poor sap about to be mobbed by the horde. Luckily, the banshees rolled low, and I had a plan.It can be safely assumed that HBs need to see And some SM explosives hamper that a bit. So after the rest of the squad made for cover, I got to yell>"NOVA OUT!"
why do gm's not allow things unless it's incredibly immersion breaking?I've never roleplayed seriously but I thought the whole idea was to create a world where you could do whatever you want?
>>26694320The plot thickens...
>>26693988Project any harder and you could grow weed in a bunker.
>>26694342Because allowing between four and six of you to do whatever you want is like herding cats. I could do that, and in general I pride myself on my adaptability to what the players come up with, but some things are so far beyond the pale that they make it difficult to GM.
>>26694387It gets even better.>>26694320So the Nova grenade detonates, hitch-free, we Spess Mahreens are all safely out of painful blinding reach by way of rocks in the way, and the GM rolls for the horde's blindness.7 rounds. Cue hysterical laughter in chat.We jump into Squad Mode, since Bob has the anti-horde ability and Smurf wants to feel useful, and casually pick the banshees apart. Grenades are tossed, Avenger lights plenty of Eldar sluts on fire, and the horde breaks before it even gets its shit together. We start high-fiving each other atop the mound of bodies, victory dancing, when we hear noises from one of the larger tunnels leading from the quite-large cavern.How large is this tunnel? Enough to fit a grav-tank.What pops its head out of the tunnel? A Falcon fucking grav tank, though I would not have been too shocked if a Fire Prism decided to squeeze out instead. Nonetheless, a Falcon. Below ground. Coming for us.The Good: None of us really used our krak grenades (I was certainly flush with them), and several of us still had Kraken bolts, if not many.The Bad: It's a fucking tank, and Kraken bolts won't pierce its cheese-ass Eldar armor reliably. Also, none of us are near cover.The first round opens badly. NERD takes a hit from the main gun, going from full to heavy wounds in one shot, thereby invalidating a slow-and-steady chip damage fight. DUDE! and Smurf both sprint back to our original cover, away from the rest of the squad. Bob tries a jump attack, but whiffs after making it to the rear armor. I do the only thing that makes sense for someone whose Demeanor is "ALWAYS ANGRY ALL THE TIME" and charge the tank with intent to leap atop it.
>>26694558>Charge the tank.Mah niggah
>>26694558The Dice Gods champion me as the reshaper of events, and combined with a smartly spent Fate point, I manage a Punishing (or so, I know it was crazy) Jump test to hitch a ride. The Kill-Team starts acting like one, with Smurf going out to help NERD to cover while DUDE! pops off a helluva Pushed Smite that actually does some damage to the tank. Bob continues to harry the tank's rear armor, though his dice crap out some more and he hits, but doesn't get pen.Meanwhile, I'm dangling off the Falcon as it spins about, left arm holding on for dear life, right arm holding onto my boombox for dear-er life, and servo-arm trying to pry the lid off this can. Thankfully, the crew is dumb enough to send someone up to try and scrape me off. He pops the top, and I crush his skull with my servo-arm in thanks. The tank continues flailing about, taking penalties to shoot that save our asses while we haplessly flail at its retarded 25+ armor on all sides (damn Eldarwank GM), so no-one's doing any real damage.That is, until I dump as much of my boombox down the hatch as the wildly swinging tank permits, which is still a lotta Kraks. I cook off the two frags still on my belt, toss them in too, and yell "FIRE IN THEIR HOLE!" before gracelessly sliding off the tank's hull.The Falcon explodes, quite catastrophically. Bob gets clear before the tank goes; I do not. I take a couple points of crit damage when all is said and done, which is fluffed as the left half of my body taking the brunt. My left leg is recoverable, but my left arm is pretty much shattered beyond repair and will have to join my right as a bionic. My response?>"MY LEFT ARM FOR A XENOS TANK? GOOD TRADE."
>It's called Detect Evil, not "The Gaydar"
>>26694666>666 tripsTHANKS SATAN!>>26694746Watch Command ended up not denying the efficacy of that tactic, but I was banned from such requisitions ever again. Further offscreen deliberation led to my being banned from carrying more than twice the standard loadout and one each of special-purpose grenades. Of course, we were showered with renown for all the damage we did and objectives completed (with GM fiat) so I got myself a Power Fist and never looked back.And that is the story of how Techmarine Manhandalus (me) was banned from carrying excessive amounts of standard issue explosives. That was also when I yelled at for yelling at a non-SM member of the Ordo Xenos as mentioned in >>26682450Silly pencil-pushers.Anyway, I think I'll have to cap my storytiming here, since doing so from memory is kinda draining. I'll save my mentioned antics in a text file, and perhaps next time a thread about fuckass deeds shows up, I'll spin some more yarn of the wild shenanigans of the Angry Techmarine.
>>26694838I have got to give you props. I went into that story thinking that your GM was insane for allowing you to play an Angry Marine, but that was interesting and fun while not being over-the-top faggoty or immersion breaking. If I ever play an Angry Marine, I will have to try to follow your example...
>>26694921Good Angry Marines take careful balance. You have to portray the no indoor voice frothing mad without letting it control the character. Wisecracking can help, as with the exchanges between myself and other notables. Always remember that Angry Marines are still Space Marines, so they're extremely disciplined and will likely line up with other non-Codex chapters. You're not crazy, you don't have tourette's syndrome, and you can guide your anger towards xenos, heretics, and mutants (barring the Primarch's Curse of being just too angry). As with all things born of 4chan, subtle.Act in this way, and the Chapter's honor may yet be restored.
>>26693481I will read this as soon as I'm done marinating chicken for tomorrows dinner.So glad I remembered to come back in the morning.

>>26695825Mind if my neutral Sorcerer steals that if he goes bad?
>>26696097Where will he post the videos?
>>26696136Use magic, make moving sketches, literally post them on boards.
>>26694838Thank you very much for sharing this with us. I enjoyed reading it very much and as I said before I am very glad I remembered to check back this morning.
>>26667880Is it an entertaining read?
>>26696136I'll use my massive charisma and money to employ brilliant young mages and artificers to invent the scryweb. Where you can share and save images, sounds, or whole memories never to be lost, we'll be rich, and famous!
>>26694558>Avenger lights plenty of Eldar sluts on firewhich Marine is this?
>>26679716DR only applies to weapon damage types, not fire.
>>26695462>>-It is even worse form to film the ensuing carnage and upload it to YouTube with the title "Will It Shark?"I laughed out loud.Thank you.
>>26695885>My alchemists are no longer allowed to specialise in "Being the horns"what does that mean?
>>26695885>The GM doesn't care that your backstory says that you're old friends, you can't enter the parliamentary building uninvited.why not? Did they not already know that part of your backstory?
>>26695462>sex cheetaYou've talked about this game before on /tg/, haven't you?
>>26695885>You cannot steamroll your way through a dungeon with bombsIc sombat more omportant then other parts of the RPG in the campaign your playing in so coming up with was to destroy, kill, or bypass the enemy without giving them a chance or getting stuck in is discouraged?
>>26696724"Being the Horns" was how I described my multiple instances of turning into a bull/ram and ramming something, despite not being built for it. Some of the things my character has rammed include giant golems, a mermaid, the aforementioned quetzacoatl, an ice witch, a kender and a colossal red dragon.>>26696732They knew that part of the backstory. It's just that the rest of my backstory involved being thrown out of the principality that this man governed for accidentally setting a Dame's wig on fire and then putting it out with a wedding cake.
>>26696744It was more a deterrence from using bombs in every one of my solutions.
>>26696043>>I am not allowed to make a creature that can break the speed of light with spooge, that's just wrong on so many levelsWhat was this creature, what did you design it to do and how and why was it able to "break the speed of light with spooge"?Please tell me I really want to know and am interested in playing a fleshwarper or something similar but the rules as I understand them don't really give even guidelines when it comes to creating designer creatures and living devices or tools..
>>26696043>I will not play an improvised weapon masterHow did you do this?I've been wanting to make one for a long time. (I've been imagining someone who can fight like Jackie Chan does by using the environment and the things in it as weapons for offence and defence)but I haven't been able to figure out how to make it mechanically effective and everyone I've asked for help with this hasn't known what to do either.What system were you playing in as an "improvised weapon master"?saw rotosh
>>26696043>>At no point am I to upgrade an army's black powder artillery shells with magical nukes without their knowledge or consent.That sounds hilarious.Storytime please.
>>26696847Fighter archetype. Cad.
>>26696757>It's just that the rest of my backstory involved being thrown out of the principality that this man governed for accidentally setting a Dame's wig on fire and then putting it out with a wedding cake.Ohhhhh ok then. Thank you for your explanation.
>>26696847Pathfinder has Improvised Weapon Proficiency and Throw Anything, both of which let you just grab shit and beat people to death with them.Shadowrun has Missile Mastery and Power Throw which turn you into Bullseye.Mutants and Masterminds has (I think) Throwing Mastery, which also turns you into Bullseye and costs like 20 points tops.
>>26696918Oh ok. interesting.why were you banned from playing one?
>>26696997I once killed a dragon with a bag of holding.
>>26696899at that point all you have to worry about is your lack of armor, sneak attack, and uncanny dodge if your a cad, and your lack of being a caster if your a fighter who managed to get throw anything and improvised weapons master some other way.
>>26697035was this just an normal abuse of a bag of holding or did you use the bag itself as an improvised weapon?
>>26697187>Implying that I wouldn't be playing BarbarianI NEED TO KILL FAST AND SWORDS ARE TOO SLOW.
>>26697195I used the bag as an improvised weapon. It was empty at the time and I was rolling really well.
>>26697251Alright, I'm going to ask the obvious question here: Why was your bag of holding empty?
