As the title says, those moment from your games you can't forget because they were either awesome, horrible or hilarious.

Congratulations, you have doomed the world">mfwWell then, /tg/, contribute whatever you remember.
This one time I was playing a samuroo in 4e (was hard but we bent it) and our fabulous monk got stuck in an enemy camp scouting (he stole an outfit) got confronted by a patrol, and he rolled diplomacy, natural. twenty. I uhh lost my ring, (he was in an empty room mind you) and he then proceeded to roll another twenty on the one sentry, and hit a one the other, which then he rolled diplomacy after the sentry said what the hell? And he replied "you look tense, i was giving you a backrub" it was glorious after he got caught later after pulling the same trick, two others died in the assault. (On phone sorry for no greentext
>>31058610Or so i think it was 4e. It was a while, but the story stuck with, we also made a fight club in our basement. Spent weeks finding materials to complete the thunderdome. But it was perfect

>>31061303We just decided to continue the game tommorow without him as it happened about a minute or two ago.
Posting from phone at work so let's see how this goes.Party consists of:> Self proclaimed "she bitch" elf sorcerer with a carriage> Human summoner played by a semi-cheaty min-maxer (good guy though)> Dwarven bard who played bagpipes (mp3 of Scotland the Brave every combat)> Elf druid with a gorilla pet> Party was traveling using the sorcerer's carriage when they are attacked by two young black dragons, barely old enough to fly.>A few arrows, a few direct damage spells, both sides are taking hits.> Sorcerer is staying in her carriage> Finally decided to help out by sticking her head out the window and casting fear> 1 fails and starts an escape> Party cleans up the other dragon> "We're gonna kill the other one too"Now, I'll work with players and bend the rules once in a while when it suits me.> Summoner: "I'll have my eidolon chuck the gorilla at the flying dragon"> Me: "There is no way you have the strength to throw him that far!"> Sorcerer: "What if I levitate the gorilla so the eidolon only has to push him in the right direction?"> Let them roll it as a touch attack with -4 for improvised weapon> Druid rolls> Table silences> Missed by one! > Groans everywhere> Bard: "Hey, did you add my bard song?"> Cheers> Gorilla connects and pummels the dragon into the groundIt is now known in our group as the "Ape Cannon"
>>31061329Hey I'm very inexperienced at D&D (I don't even know most of the vocabulary) but am willing to learn and have some fun, any way I might be able to join?

>>31061361Sorry, the session is homebrew system at my place. His ragequit was literally leaving my house tantruming like a little child that didn't get his happy meal.
>>31061429Delicious tears of rage. I'd like to lick them from his baby cheeks.
>>31061417Indeed, just like a wizard.

>>31061361Check the game finder thread over at >>31049867 - there's bound to be a fair few people running D&D games.
>>31063601>Kill 5 rats with potatoesWere they Irish or something?
>>31058610Samurai are actually easy to play in 4e.Fighter, Warlord or Ranger, weapon of choice - FullBlade or GreatSpear or Bows depending on the type of samurai you want to be, Samurai theme and background. It's in Dragon Magazine #404.Just fluff and style it as you choose, roleplay as a samurai and so on. It even allows for you to be a Ronin or a Bushi, and there are weaponstyles or feats that augment your at-wills and make you more like a samurai if you so choose.
>>31064803Obviously not since they died after receiving the potato.
>>31064929I'm thinking of starting D&D (since I'm often on /tg/ but actually never plays tabletop games).Which one is best, 3,5 or 4?
>>31065207>I'm often on /tg/>Which one is best, 3.5 or 4?Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
> Playing a pretty standard group, pally, rogue, barbarian, something-magic-y.> Our dwarf barbarian had... Little in the way in personality.> AKA- illogical hatred of all wood.> He manages to trigger a million traps, learns no lessons.> Survives because... Luck I guess. Pure luck.> We happen upon a room with four chests.> Pally restrains the dwarf because, at this point, it borders upon evil or at least retarded to keep endangering the lot of us.> Restrains him via solid, disorienting, whack to the head.> I check, no traps.> One for each of us.

>>31065207If you're on /tg/ often, you must've seen one of the thousands of threads arguing about that question. The basic answer? Neither. If you want unnecessarily complex game where balance is low priority, 3.5. If you want a system that excels in tactical combat but de-emphasizes actual roleplaying, 4e. In all likelyhood, you shouldn't want D&D at all.
>>31065227I just lurk, sorry.>>31065348>If you're on /tg/ often, you must've seen one of the thousands of threads arguing about that questionTo be totally and utterly honest, I'm here mostly for the story threads, because I like them.Anyway, I guess I'd rather have 3.5 than 4.If I wanted tactical combat, I would be playing something else.
How my party (actually, it was just one player) defeated the BBEG in less than a round (more or less.)Our tale begins at level four, in 3.5. Starts as a two person game. elven monk and a half-orc fighter. We are later joined by a human ranger.One night, we're playing at the ranger's house. His room is the entirety of the 3rd story, a big loft-type deal. Nice and comfortable. Just so happens his brother is in from out of town. Not wanting to shun his brother, he asks if he can join in for a session. I okay it. Brother rolls up a human assassin named Scorpius.Dude his hilarious. His character is literally a caricature of everything wrong with many players.Anyway. They chase after the McGuffin for literally 10 levels, finally cornering it. The McGuffin was a relic of Pelor known as the Sunstone, stolen by a fallen angel. The angel was passing it on to the First Vampire. This dude was so old, only sunlight could kill him, and once he had the Sunstone, it granted immunity to that as well because reasons.>Players watch as the Sunstone gets handed off, from hiding>Vampire starts making preparations to unleash his army of ghosts>Monk has an idea to stop him>Fighter has a different idea to stop him>Ranger tries to mediate>This happens anytime a plan needs to be made>theshitiputupwith.png>Assassin passes me a note>I nod and tell him to roll>Another note, another roll>Rest of the party didn't even notice him leave>Assassin steps out and challenges the Vampire>Rest of the party shits bricks>"I'm not the best of men, but even I, a taker-of-lives, cannot abide the mindless slaughter your reign shall bring!">More bricks are shit>"Fool! I have become TRULY immortal! Behold!" Vampire lord pulls a lever, opening up the roof to let in the light of the sun>Bursts into flames and dies like a bitch>Party's face when the assassin pickpocketed the McGuffin while they were busy arguingBest moment of the entire campaign.
>>31063368No sense of right and wrong...
>>31065618>"Fool! I have become TRULY immortal! Behold!" Vampire lord pulls a lever, opening up the roof to let in the light of the sun>Bursts into flames and dies like a bitch>Party's face when the assassin pickpocketed the McGuffin while they were busy arguingAnd not a single fuck was given that day.
>>31064929I went look for that one but issue not found!
>>31065744I was more thinking of some kind of borderline suicidal behaviour, with a lot of collateral damage.>saves a town from bandits by leveling the mountain with a giant explosion>the land cannot be cultivated anymore due to the ashes>the sun is blocked forever, slowly turning the inhabitants in tall, pale people>water cannot be consumed due to the ashes>but at least, the bandits are deadSomething like that really strikes me as wizard-like.
>>Playing a treasure planet inspired Space Adventures game using pathfinder rules>>We are being pursued in our open topped skyship by another open topped skyship at very high speeds>>we have no cannons or effective anti vehicle ranged weapons>>ask the GM roughly how fast we are going, and get ambiguous FAST answer>>tell sorcerer my idea after roughing out some calculations on a napkin>>sorcerer summons a horse>>immediately behind our ship so it isnt caught in our inertial field>>enemy ship collides with horse at relativistic velocity>> no more pursuit>> sorcerer summons nothing but horses the rest of the campaign
>>31061410I imagine that the golem was sentient and overzealous to do it's job. It was the first time it's master let it work on it's own and it was so excited and nervous to show him he could. Then he fucking fell off. Nerves, man.
Not mine, but it's a story I know. It's from a livestream.

>PCs uncover a plot to massacre a school the next day>find out along the way there's a kid who shits out rubies going to the school>they completely abandon their plan to stop the massacre and focus on kidnapping this child>party druid uses a magic mask to disguise himself as a teacher, goes and finds the kid>it's his birthday>druid tells him he's got a present for him in the staff room>tries to knock him out, accidentally kills him instead>teacher sees, she gets knocked out>party hides the kid's body in a gift-wrapped box>leaves school, tries to give the box to a lollipop lady>she opens it, screams and the druid tries to knock her out but accidentally kills her again>knocks out the other lollipop lady>books itThat was the only session for which only the women showed up. Other highlights include castrating another party member and selling him to a Dwarven circus, and nearly getting TPKd by low-level zombies.

Also, pay attention in biology class.
I'm gonna go archive this because stories and FUCK QUEST SHIT.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31058461/
>>31069647I'm not sure if organo-metallic compounds like potassium compounds count as metal...? If nothing else, I know that all muscles have calcium and sodium ions to trigger contraction, so his heart'd stop.Still, kind of a dick move.
>>31070027Yeah, it was a bit of a stretch, but as you say, there's no way that effect wouldn't kill someone somehow.I felt a little bad for screwing up an entire campaign made by a guy who was way better at preparing things than thinking on his feet before the whole conflict gained any momentum though.

Next session another friend of ours joined the group as another psyker, so I wrote him into the story in a random escape pod that landed in the ruins.>new psyker friend is told he's going to be introduced as landing in an escape pod with amnesia.>he decides to make a big entrance, prepares Call Item minor power>main group advances through the ruins after hearing a huge explosion and finds the escape pod>they advance on it, weapons ready (actually really proud of their roleplaying because they genuinely acted like they didn't know what was up)>New!Psyker uses Spectral Hands to tear the door off the escape pod and emerges in a Euro-Vision style cloud of mist and light>he walks down the ramp and announces out of character he's using Call Item - succeeds and produces a pot of hot coffee>"Does anyone want some...COFFEE!?!?">everyone at the table has a giggle because nobody knew what the fuck he'd decided to prepare and we were not expecting coffee>Old!Psyker player waits for the laughter to calm down and then quietly says 'I use Spasm'.>everyone pisses themselves laughing as he casts it and New!Psyker drops to the ground twitching>assassin player puts a las-round through the coffee pot and announces 'threat neutralized' as the Arbitrator cuffs the New!Psyker>takes them ten minutes to 'work out' that he's on their side
>>31072339With two psykers now shitting up the party, we continue.>2psykers>lmao 2psykers>players encounter a mercenary patrol and have a brief skirmish with them>new!Psyker decides at one point that his best option when confronted with a bayonet charge is to use Call Creatures>he's expecting a cloud of bats, or a swarm of rats>I tell him it succeeded and there's no immediate result>he's fairly unhappy as his character gets stabbed, uses Spectral Hands to drop a steel girder on the Merc the next turn>encounter finishes and they keep going>I've been counting down a stat on my notepad since he cast Call Creature>as the players are attempting to lower each other down a shaft with some rope I announce that the Called Creatures have finally reached them>a horde of zombies>desperate vertical fight against plague zombies fall down the shaft in an attempt to get the players ensues>my players finally begin to hate me
I've got two from the same campaign. It was an odd trip, two season of nautical shenanigans.>First Season event>We're coming up on some creepy, abandoned, goblin-infested castle in the middle of a lake>the pirates we were racing against got there first>our ship was a catamaran>our brilliant plan was forged by the group's Ranger/Barbarian (only took the barbarian level to keep up with the Fighter/Barbarian half-orc who consistently outdid him with only his fists and a shiv)>we throw a sheet over an animated chair (it was domesticated by the Halfling bard through seven consecutive ride checks)>make spooky ghost noises as we drift towards the docking area>entire enemy crew comes out and takes a gander>enemy captain shoots it>doesn't break the chair's hardness>it's still dancing around, covered in a sheet, while we all make spooky ghost noises from hiding>for some fucking reason, this works and the pirates disperse back inside the keep and let our ship get close enough for us to sneak into the ruin>after a running fight to the roof through goblins and pirates, the Fighter/Barbarian jumps off the roof with the Pirate captain and uses him as a landing pad for a 50ft drop
>>31072139>>31072339>>31072449Anyone actually reading these?>capture: classes solved
>>31072479Yeah. I love stories involving psykers and wizards. Please continue, if you got any more that is.
>>31072469>Second season>BBEG has occupied a town we rebuilt with the treasure from the previous season>all the townies rounded up in a big wooden fence>Ranger comes up with another stellar plan>Using the skull of a dragon we had recently killed (had to kill it for the Fighter/Barbarian to get his brains back from faeries), and pieces of our catamaran, we constructed a fake dragon>Through use of Major Image and Ghost Sound, we had a fairly convincing Black Dragon>And with enough PCs/NPCs, we could even fill out the full attack to boot.>So we roll up on the trapped villagers and their guards>all but one guard fail their saving throws>the one guard who did succeed is vaporized thanks to a Rod of Wonder fire from the mouth of the "dragon".>townies begin to stampede against the fencing, breaking it down and trampling the guards between them and the nearby woods>we continue advancing to the BBEG's agent who we had nicknamed Megatron>Megatron makes the save, Starscream (his assistant) does not>Meg's something like a pure Barbarian 12 or something>we end up whaling on him for the better part of four hours, with occasional Rod of Wonder mishaps (stream of flowers, that sort of thing)>he finally dies>BBEG talks through the corpse like a puppet, trying to be threatening>no one takes him seriously as we're in the post-battle high>cocksucking motions are made when the BBEG speaksStill waiting on Season 3: Desert Edition.
>>31072517Roger that, it gets pretty damn good. There was a lot of campaign, but these are the highlights I remember.>>31072449>source of zombies is finally determined and the players spend some time piecing together this conspiracy of a xeno-substance being laced into rations (secretly manufacture in places like the dead hive) and distributed from a Merchant Guild House elsewhere on he planet>party heads over to the Guild House Manor, way out in the fucking sticks, and land their hired Ornithopter on the front lawn>time to walk up to the front door>a servitor butler lets them in and its immediately obvious the place has seen better days>all the doors, including the exit, are dead bolted shut, trapping them>the servitor is the only interactive thing and leads them through the mansion based on a logic map I wrote up - certain questions/phrases lead to certain chambers. With enough patience you can work out the pattern and get it to take you to the 'boss room'>players lack patience, of course, and New!Psyker uses Spectral Hands to hurl the Servitor against a wall to 'make him talk'>Servitor expires>players are trapped for 6 hours, taking fatigue points as they get hungry>finally a new Servitor appears from a small hatch>exactly the same as the old one>they realize they can't brute force it>[hatred intensifies]>finally get to the private study of the Guild House Leader>he's been killed and his corpse booby trapped to release a warp daemon>the house becomes he epicentre of a major warp event and the players get the fight they've been whinging for all session>barely survive as they fight their way clear of the Manor with the evidence they've managed to obtainGood times.
I could tell a really long greentext story, but I only need one sentence for the moment that everything changed.Supa Dimenshun Stompa mode engaged.
>>31071974Mind dumping that?>>31061351"Fire the ape cannon!"Dubstep made entirely with ape noises begins to play.
>>31072809>Macross-themed tomfooleryThis requires expanding on, Anon.
>>31072723This one was more of a moment of awesome>third act of the campaign>stuff is coming together, the players are raiding the lair of a Chaos Cult for the final pieces of the puzzle with the support of Arbitrators>pretty much all of the Arbitrator NPCs die, except for one they christen Agent Benson. He becomes a DMPC (I keep the basic NPC Arbitrator stats)>shit starts to get real as booby-trap daemons begin appearing and the Cult Magus elite guard are wrecking face>the party is fighting daemons and elite cultists over three storeys of underground ruins - a basement level with a hole in the floor of the upper level and a mezzanine balcony above that>one of the elite cultists leaps up from the basement level using a grapnel hook onto the upper floor and hurls him into the basement (full of daemons)>daemon claws the New!Psyker in the face, mutilating him and forcing him to burn a fate point>party abandons him, falling back>Agent Benson doesn't run, dropping down from the Mezzanine level on a grapnel zip-line - as he plunges past the elite heretic, he blasts him with his combat shotgun and kills him>lands on the basement level next to New!Psyker, and hooks the grapnel into his belt>activates the retrieval button, New!Psyker gets dragged up towards the ceilingNow, that sounds like a lot of stuff for one combat action - but it was basically half-action to fire the grapnel onto the ceiling while stepping off the mezzanine, half action to fire the combat shotgun and a free action to hook the thing into New!Psyker's belt. Plus, I figured it could also represent New!Psyker's burnt fate point.>its generally accepted that this was awesome and that Agent Benson has essentially sacrificed himself>daemons and heretics have another round before anyone can act>tear off Agent Benson's arm but don't quite kill him. cont'd, this one is long.
>>31073101>Agent Benson drops to his knees, leveling his auto-pistol and firing a full auto burst at the daemon that took his arm>he *will* die next turn>Friend Arbitrator's turn comes up>he announces he's firing his grapnel down into the basement from the mezzanine>aims at Agent Benson's armoured back>I rule that if he causes a wound to Benson, that means the grapnel has succesfully penetrated the armour and hooked on>Benson is 3 wounds from death>Friend Arbitrator hits and rolls for damage>1 wound>Agent Benson's lung is punctured but he's not dead>Friend Arbitrator reels in the grapnel, dragging Agent Benson clear of the daemons's claws>they manage to escape with their wounded and Agent Benson lives long enough to be retired from play after they take him to an Imperial Hospitalis.
>>31073179Last one for this campaign.>players have unravelled the whole conspiracy with the xeno-crop, linking it to the Planetary Governor planning to raise a brain-washed army from the planet's population and secede from the Imperial.>they manage to stealth aboard his orbital Governer's Palace/fortress>get all the way to his State Room, which is a gigantic observation deck - fully half of the floor is part of a giant dome of triangular glass panels reinforced with steel girders through which you can look down on the planet>they confront the Governor and execute him even as he tells them he had no choice>the sound of live power armour fills the State Room>a Chaos Space Marine emerges from the shadows in the corner and, in response to the expected 'WHO ARE YOU?" from the players, says 'My name is Alpharius' (not THE Alpharius just that whole Alpha Legion thing where they're all Alpharius)>boss battle music and shit getting real>Old!Psyker gets initiative and decides to open the proceedings with FIREBALLS TO THE FACE - I'm concerned he's going to actually one-shot the big bad, because I've been constantly under-estimating how stronk his fucking powers are>rolls a 9>oh shit>rolls for phenomena - its less than 75, everyone breaths a sigh of relief>I look up the result of 61>I start laughing>I can't stop>it's Banshee Howl>A deafening keening sounds out for a kilometre, shattering glass and forcing everyone in the area to make a Toughness test or be deafended for 1d10 rounds>shattering glass>SHATTERING GLASS>the glass dome shatters and the entire party + 'Alpharius' is flushed into space.>campaign ends with the party asphyxiating in space and the players screaming at each other
In a WFRP game, I was playing a Light Wizard in a party that got the shit end of the mutation stick. Each character had a mutation tree the GM had customized thematically, ie: steampunk Chaos-cyborg, Slaaneshi hermaphroditic valkyrie, shadow-twisting vampire, and myself, the glowing crystalline eye-beaming duplicator. Did I mention I had a permanent clone? Important factoid, that.So, we had found this McGuffin ritual that would remove the taint of Chaos from our bodies and souls, but would bring us to the end of our mutation tree (DM left that part out). I was the first to use it, as I was the only one who could cast it and was pretty mutated. It left me with the permanent clone, but less insanity points and a clean soul. The next equinox, when could next cast the ritual, I did so twice, seeing as there were two of me. Also, many of our PCs were advancing in their mutation trees and we knew that if they went too far... POP! Demon time. We decided to do the ritual a safe distance outside of town, to the North- and Southeast. Time comes to make the casting roll, and I cast successfully... but roll triple 7. DM rolls Perils... Demonic Possession for 1 minute. So, now there is a Demon in my head, which is running two bodies, which are each casting an incredibly powerful ritual. What is said Demon to do? Open two gates to the Realms of the Ruinous Powers, of course.A tidal wave of Demons pour out of two holes in reality. Through a long series of events that require too long to explain, an alliance of undead lead by our vampire PC and steampunk airships and automatons led by our aforementioned cyborg PC stomp out the Demons and close the gates, but not before the most important trade hub in the region is destroyed. These two forces maintain their alliance and slowly, but methodically, take over the world. None put up a real fight until the elves wielding High Magic flew in on Dragons, but even they fell to the armies of undead and machines.
>>31073630Humanity was enslaved and kept as both cattle to feed the vampire overlords and sources of innovation - for both the undead and the machine mind stagnate over time, and the two PCs were smart enough to know that. Intelligent belligerents were monitored, and, if found suiting, selected for advancement through undeath or machine Chaos mutations.And that's how my rolling a triple 7 ended a campaign and forged the most oppressive hellhole of a setting I've seen in years! :D
>>31073630>>31073685Have you ever read or watched Vampire Hunter D?
>>31073374Oh god, that's almost even better than The Molotov Incident from the DH campaign I'm in.
Playing through the old Against the Giants modules. I was playing a centaur ranger with the Giant Killer kit (2e) so I was pretty fucking overpowered, which become even more accentuated when we found a Ring of Three Wishes. I got to use one of them, as I was one of the three characters who retrieved it, and I got the ability to cast a variant of the Lightning Bolt spell.Anyway, we progress through the campaign until we reach the Fire Giant stronghold. We sneak in, harass and pick them off a couple at a time, slowly whittling down their numbers (we were like level 9, the suggested level for the module was 14 I think, so we had to be damn careful.) Anyway, while a couple of the other PCs are doing scouting and being sneaky and shit, I with nothing better to do, start going through all the accumulated crap and the character sheets of my henchmen.One of them was a Hedge Wizard and he had mostly buffs and utility spells. I saw that on his spell list, he had both Enlarge/Reduce and Fly.After looking up how multiple castings of Reduce stacked, I had my henchman cast it on me as many times as he could, bringing my height to something like half an inch. He then cast Fly on me, I used my Ring of Invisibility, and I flew into the stronghold through a crack in the door.I made a beeline for the king's room, and found him sitting on his throne. I proceeded to fly up his nose, and charge up a lightning bolt. The way the DM ruled it worked was that I could cast up to 5d6 worth of lightning bolts per level per day, but only 10d6 per round unless I "charged" them and released them in a burst next round, so at level 9 I got 45d6 worth of lightning bolts per day. After charging up all 45, I released the charge and pretty much vaporized his head.
>>31072139>rolls phenomena, gets Banshee Howl>entire town flees into the desertI'd like to make a sides joke here because I laughed for real.Shit like that is why I'm on /tg/ despite never playing Tabletop Games.
>>31065928Actually the ashes would probably be good fertilizer....

>>31074796Still.... good.... fertilizer.... plus theres magic, and with magic you ain't gotta explain shit....

Alright /tg/, this is my first time posting any of my stories.>playing 2E with my girlfriend and her familyGirlfriend: Level 4 elf thiefGF's younger brother: Level 3 dwarf fighterGF's older sister: Level 4 human crusader clericMe: Level 4 human mage>dungeon crawling in a base full of orc led by human/hobgoblin commanders>find a magic portal and half the party goes through because we are being chased>huge ass wererat hauling ass after us, not giving two shits about anything we throw at itNow, the session before we had managed by an exceptional roll to find a scroll of disintegrate.>disintegrate the rat and run through the portal>level 7 wizard desperately fighting my party after being woken up>still dies on the first blow from our dwarf fighter (max damage crit)>guards burst into the room, just orcs, get their asses handed to themEveryone settles in and fortifies the place, I yank a wand out of the wall to deactivate the portal while everyone investigates the room.>get a wonderful idea>flash the wand in and out, receive the face of an orc>grab the mattresses from the guard room and drive my collection of short swords through it (I had picked up a few along the way)>prop up a matress against a pile of corpses>wandI wound up with roughly 5 dead orcs before any of them succeeded in making it through. When they did, I had our dwarf fighter kick the matress which to the frustration of the DM managed to kill another 3. I wound up taking the other matress and using it like a porcupine as I crossed a field, dropping to the ground and covering myself with it. One of the orcs who attacked me during that time failed his intelligence roll with a 20 and twice, wound up staring at me the first time, and on the second the DM decided it forgot how to breath. At the end of the session he was just shaking his head in frustration as I had managed to kill over 20 orcs by driving swords through matresses.
>>31065348There's pathfinder which is 3.5 if 3.5 was good.
>>31071111>>31071531GLORIOUS!Here's a screencap of it

>>31079196Complete moron.But he has redeeming moments. He used gold from a quest to open and pay for a small hospital in the first town we came into, since it lacked a dedicated healer.He tries, bless him.
I once ran a one shot 3.5 game with 2 players that played as Half Orc Half Brothers. It was glorious. They made Dul and Lud, who after shenanigans in the tribe got banished. To redeem themselves they had to find "The Heart of the World" which was a fake item made up by the elders. More shenanigans ensued.
>>31073179>they manage to escape with their wounded and Agent Benson lives long enough to be retired from play after they take him to an Imperial Hospitalis.Best ending.>>31074019>The Molotov IncidentInformation. NOW.Anyway, I've already told the story of how the party's Idolatrix Magos managed to make himself achieve escape velocity, by accident. However, I haven't told the story (which happened today) of how my character died.>be playing psyker, with a twist (he's an amnesiac Genestealer Magus)>halfway through current boss fight.

>>31081225>Fail agility test to bounce off the shield, end up falling underneath a terminator. Fuck.>Not enough infamy to burn. Fuck. Dead....back at base.'So then brothers, after I scraped their scum friend off my boots bottom I turned and said, "Looks like that heretic came to a flat stop!" You should've seen their faces brothers.'Sorry about your character though.
>>31082944Nah, the GM worked out that the Thousand Sons Sorceror's warpy bolter should've been a little more overpowered than it actually was.That's right, the rest of the party killed that Grey Knight Terminator. They killed him good. And the fleshshaper has scraped my remains up and is intending to use them and the body of the Grey Knight to make a flesh-puppet.
>>31080004Well, at least he's not a jerk.He seems to be a likable fool.

>>31063601I feel like you've told us this story already. The only thing I don't like is this story sounds so xD LOLSORANDUM that I just can't see that happening. Couldn't the Gm have just said the potatoes aren't heavy enough to set off pressure plated traps?
>>31084815It was more of a cutaway than a proper mission. Just an excuse to have some other characters go off and do something while mine was brought up to speed during the drive.Then later:>we're fighting a coven of witches>the main witch transforms into a giant beast form that is being constantly fed power by its underlings>underlings are standing on balconies around the room just out of reach>I leap up and aim for the balcony with my sword, hoping to cut it down and take care of all the witches on it in one attack>I roll a critical success>I not only cut down the balcony on one wall, but I cause it to dislodge, swing down and slam into the balcony on the other side of the room>2/3rds of the witches have been taken out in one move

>>31085026but then you'd have to describe each and every movement within the room, and detail exactly how much pressure you put into every step, otherwise how does the DM know you put enough pressure on the trap to set it off?
>>31087041Pretty sure just about any pressure trap is made for small humanoids and above, unless you can reduce your weight to that of a potato.
>>31085026Not that guy but the potatos aren't just being placed on the traps, they're being thrown at them. So the weight doesn't really matter since they have enough force to set off traps.
>>31089260If it was a stone floor that the pressure trap was in, wouldn't it just splatter against the stone? I don't know if potatoes would splat but I don't think it would apply enough force to move a slab of stone downwards even if it was thrown pretty hard.

>>31089561Potatoes aren't in the habit of going splat unless they're rotten, even if you do hurl them really hard. Even the ones that are going green and about to sprout still have about as much substance to them as a rock of the same size.

>>31060929A little late in the day for this but Touch of Golden Ice does DEX not CON damage. Still just as useful though!
