Oof, when the player who always does a crazy plan says that your plan is crazy, you know it's either true chaos or pure stupid.

Tell a story of when even crazy calls it crazy.

While this did’t happen to me personally, I watched a long running D&D campaign where the group came up with the loopiest plan to deal with a camp full of cultist paladins and clerics: sneak in under the cover of darkness while a nearby orc camp is raising hell as a distraction. When they reached the leaders tent, the sorcerer twin cast polymorph while the bard dimension door-Ed himself and the kenku tagalong into the air. The end result: the kenku and the ranger both turned into a Brachiosaurus and dropped right on top of the enemy warlock guarding the leaders tent, smashing him into a fine mist while the ranger went on a rampage. Even the guy playing the orc barbarian (who by the way once spent five minutes trying to steal a hedgehog...don’t ask) thought the plan was nuttier than a can of cashews, but these dumb asses still managed to pull it off without a hitch

I doubt they properly modeled the fact that a Brachiosaurus dropping from any height will break multiple bones and most likely die of internal bleeding.

They were the kind of animal that only falls over once in their life time.

Nope. This campaign tends to go by rule of cool as long as no one tried to blatantly break the laws of reality over their knee or go over the DM’s head.

P.S. To whoever is moderating this, sorry for the repeat comment. 😅. Only just figured out how to reply.

In the same way that a peasant railgun doesn't yield lethal momentum despite being able to bucket brigade an object literal miles in 6 seconds with enough peasants, physics in 3.5e bears only a passing resemblance to reality. If you have never used a summoned celestial bison to flatten a troublesome villain with a bad reflex save, are you REALLY a munchkin?

Agreed. And I have one more story to share about this same group. First some context: group of demons collectively known as Yugaloth had subverted the guard and the the ruling body of the city of Alavast. They were looking for two things; the mask the players had in their possession, which once housed a fragment of a gods soul, and access to the crystalline structure hanging over the city which housed the skull of that same god.

After one of their employees had been kidnapped by one of these demons, the players needed to sneak into the high district to rescue her. The solution? Dress up as the royal procession of a Yuan-Ti prince (I.e. their info broker) and talk their way past the guards.

A couple of high bluff checks and an absurdly high intimidation role later, the guards are all but wetting themselves as they let these snake people go through. Afterward, everyone agreed that should not have worked as well as it did. Especially considering the hodgepodge costumes they were wearing. A prime example being the kobold ranger, who had painted himself green and glued a couple of snake puppets to his shoulders that were piloted by his friend familiars.

Or just drown them with Force Cage and Create Water. Seriously, there's dozens of ways to do absurd results if you're willing to discard verisimilitude. But where's the fun in a cheap and easy method?
