You know, there are male ballet dancers. I guess they still wear leotards though?

Nobody with a moustache that fine could be a bad ballerina!

Despite his peg leg? I suppose he could get a prosthetic skate, but he'd still lose finesse from the lack of articulation.

...

Then again, Kuma shows that cybernetics have come a loooong way in this world.

Are you kidding? A peg leg is perfect for staying on point. Dude could spin for hours.

Little known fact. Male ballet dancers? Can be pretty badass. I'm not even kidding. Was watching a thing and he did a pretty convincing job as a professional wrestler.

Although after reexamining my last statement I realize this may not be the best argument.

Do you have any idea how strong your legs and feet have to be to balance on the tip of one toe? How strong your upper body needs to be to pick a woman up, hold her out in front of you, and physically throw her ten feet away? In sweltering heat, with blinding lights in your face? Stages get very, very hot.

You have to be pretty badass to do all that in front of hundreds or thousands of people.

Who stole the GM's line in the last panel? It was Zoro, wasn't it?

"The Botch"

Ah, yes: the botch. The crit fail. The glitch...

The reason my first RPG character ever died. I was playing Werewolf the Apocalypse at a convention. Two hours into the session, we were fighting an unseen enemy. My character Gabriel managed to get through the hole we made in the ceiling.

... then the dice took a turn for the worse. I botched the next THREE rolls on perception, attacking blindly, and my soak roll.

Ever since that, I've been a part of a number of games where a roll was botched. Usually we all band together and overrule the GM's decision because as player's we're much more cruel and amused by the result.

After all, what's more amusing: a fighter in heavy armor getting bit by a centipede-looking bug and having only a slight itch? Or saying that the fighter now has diarrhea while we have an entire day's ride on horseback ahead of us.

my SO has the gift of glorious botching skills, up to (and including):
- shooting a nurse hiding in a dark corner a room away when aiming for the assassin standing right in front of her, outlined by the light of the doorway.
- Shapeshifting her bones to the outside of her body.
- ramming her claws into a concrete wall with super strength (botched hit), forcing the shattered remains into her fingers (botched soak) and then slowly bleeding to near death (botched medicine) "It's only a flesh wound."

My most memorable botch was in a game I was running - when I learned that my players have no subtlety - one of them was possessed by daemon weapons and was absolutely chewing through everything, until a rank-and-file Arbite (Dark Heresy) got into melee with him. On an 80 or less to hit, with double attacks, two weapons, swift attacks, and several rerolls, 13 consecutive missed attacks, which resulted in him being disarmed and taken down hard. At which point I learned the valuable lesson "Never let my players anywhere near anything that could give them power, even if they really, really shouldn't want to use it"

"Missed with the ceiling and caused a storm of magical arrows"

Got two stories.

First campaign I was in with my current group I was playing a chaotic evil drow rogue, and we had somehow wound up in a cave system and angered a silver dragon to the point where it wanted to eat us dead.

We've gone five rounds, and the dragon isn't appearing to get any closer to dead, so my rogue starts climbing the wall to the ceiling. That took six rounds, even with the clever use of improvised climbing gear and levitation to speed up the climbing, and dealing with the dwarf paladin hurling rocks and insults at him for being "a lily livered coward!" for two of those turns, my rogue finally spidermans his way up the cavern wall and across the ceiling to begin knocking stalagmites off the ceiling. He critically lost his grip and rode the stalgmite down, and with a 3/4 chance of hitting the dragon, he still missed it on the d4 roll. The dwarf got a lucky crit and crushed the dragon's head in the next round though. then the ceiling started coming down collapsed part of the floor and a dragon that suspiciously looked like Tiamat flew away through the new skylight in the floor and mountain.




The second story of a botched roll comes from the previous campaign we were on. Drow chaotic good cleric (long story short he got raised by moon elf slaves that escaped from the destruction of Ched Nasad, took pity on him and dragged him along to the surface),anyway the DM had us going through brightstone keep and we managed to end up breaking time, also logic due to my character managing to bluff the lady of pain into giving us the rogue back after she had the brilliant idea of praying to her for help. As a result of breaking time we ended up flung far into the future during a second spellplague.

Due to this we ended up splitting the party with my character riding ahead with the dragon member of the group to return to waterdeep in the hope that our employer, a warforged golem that had retired to become a tavern owner was still alive and kicking. Part way there the rogue and fighter got into an argument and were fighting with improvised weapons, one of whom critted and broke the other's toe with a rock. My cleric's god decided to inform him that his party members were being idiots, and so he shot an arrow imbued with a healing spell into the air in the wild hope of it possibly hitting his idiot party members (critical success), which due to the spellplauge (which we were only now starting to realize) the countryside was afflicted with a storm of magnificent proportions that rained down arrows imbued with multiple elements (fire, ice, shadow, lightning and generic healing spells). This marked one of the many times in our campaigns that a natural 20 has caused more problems than it was worth, resulting in the rest of the party hiding under the cart while the dragon and the cleric hid in a cave with a mural depicting Lo.... and a few thousand whelps of metallic and chromatic natures, but that's a story for another occasion.

I remember a time when the critical failures were on the other side of the DM screen. I do not recall what we were fighting, precisely, but one of them managed to get into melee with our mage (not as bad as it sounds, dude was CRAZAAY) and got in a full attack.

Rolls were, as I recall:
1, 1, 2, 1.

The DM declared that the monster simply exploded on the spot at that point.

What's this? A story time NOT started by the ineffable Raxon? [see title for more details]
