Doing the right thing isn't always easy, but then, that's why we call them heroes.
Tell a story about the time a character when above&and beyond the call.
(In the interests of modesty, it doesn't have to be about one of your PCs. Though it can be)
Mentioned this earlier but... the guy sacrificed himself to kill a lunar god and became a giant velociraptor constellation as a consolation.
Sounds like a pretty good... constellation prize.
Some times to do damage, you gotta eat damage. Sometimes spectacularly.
Tell a story about a time you or someone in your view decided to damn the damage to himself, and just went for it. And hopefully survived, cause everyone loves a happy ending.
(Does not necessarily have to be combat based. And yes, someone asked for a story before me, but mine feels more appropriate to this comic.)
It was my first game of d&d ever, 4th edition. I was playing an eladrin rogue, and through events involving me, attempting to hide a dagger uncomfortably, and a horribly derailed storyline, we ended up fighting the guards of a hamlet. Ended up killing them all, my only real contribution was leaping off a building to do a flying kick to the guard captain. I took more falling damage than I dealt to the guy, it wasn't exactly spectacular. We were only 1st level after all.
I think I've already told the tale of the elven rogue who ate each and every trap laid between her and the lich's philactery. Funny enough, that didn't kill her. What killed her was the troll the group found later that decided that the over-protected mage (surrounded by a warrior and two NPC paladins) was too much a hassle and used its rake attack on her.
I lit an entire cave of vampires on fire while the party was still inside. Everyone almost died, but at least I got 30+ vampire kills out of it.

The wee men are precious!
During a one-shot with a homebrew run by a friend I was playing a burly swordsman type. One of the enemies we faced basically had 3 skills to him. He could place a mark on an opponent which meant any damage HE took would affect those with the mark. He could also teleport and had a healing trick.
After a prolonged battle against our party's healer, I caught up to the fight and decided to wade in. I was immediately marked and the GM looked smug, preparing to kite me to death.
The only thing was he couldn't IMMEDIATELY teleport away, and I asked him a simple question 'who has more health, him or me?'
Our healer realised what I was on about and began removing their mark again before I poured everything I had into a series of attacks on the enemy.
It certainly helped that my character was a combat nut and just laughed as every wound he poured onto the guy appeared on his own body. The look on the GM's face was glorious too ^^
