Zoro's going to have that reaction a lot I think before this fight is done...

I kind of want to start a story time- like I'm obligated to.... But I can't think of something-
OH! I know! I cast summon Raxon!

Or do I have to say Raxon's name three times, like beetlejuice. Not sure...
....
.....
Raxon.

Emily is clearly compensating for a lack of something here. Why Emily, my dear, do I detect a hint of freudian envy?

You see, Cory may have three swords, but that's just wish fulfillment... Come to think of it, I suupose that's what it is for Emily, as well.

"Oh wait I've got one-"

Tell a story about how you bought an expensive piece of gear that other players thought was a waste of money...
Until they saw it in action.

In Star Wars, my mercenary had money to burn, so I bought a jet pack. The other players told me I was nuts and wasting money and could have easily bought a grappling hook. Cue us in a swamp- their grappling hooks weren't working because they couldn't make their rolls to get us out of the muck. I just smirked, kicked in my jet pack, and waited on the high ground for them to ask for help while eating an apple :)
Of course, it's the same reason I always buy the miniaturized long range encrypted hologram com links- why give your game master open license to screw you over by having less capable gear?

Kudos to you for your good fortune, but shame on your GM for not having your jetpack ignite the swamp gases and blow you all to kingdom come. No ill will meant to you, but I can't stand to see a perfectly good opportunity for a giant explosion wasted like that.

"Poor, poor Gyaros."

Protip: If you use a jar of elemental fire as a summoning focus, then jam it deep into the spinneretes of the gigantic monstrous spider god, said deity won't be very happy when the Phoenix errupts 5 rounds later.

I was kinda hoping you did that to Lolth. Can you imagine the look on her face when a lowly mortal dares impose a magical butt plug on her?

It was a home-brewed deific manifestation of the evil moon, and had to be fought on the material, ethereal and shadow planes all at once. As unhappy as Gyaros was when the phoenix first arrived, I think it got really pissed off when my kept casting grease and making charge attacks to ram more jars in. It was, to say the least, the campaign finale, after which the entire moon melted to slag.

Vividly.
As for my story... Hmm. The best I have is my tsundere Pixie Knight (tweaked racials from being a Transmitter's unwilling experiment), who could throw orcs at each other despite being a 6" tall fey with wings. I prefer a friend's story, though, wherein a Druid wildshaped into a rodent played havoc with the Thieves' Guild that had the gall to try holding her captive. Rather than waiting to be rescued, she shrugged off the knockout poison and disappeared into a wall. After a lucky Wild Empathy check on a cat, she chewed through strings on their traps and straps on their unattended armor, soiled the fruit bowls and the larder, persuaded the aforementioned cat to puke in the guildmaster's shoes, and relocated some very expensive earrings to retrieve later. Only then did she bother escaping. And the moral of the story is that a Druid with a rogueish skill selection is not a good lady to piss off.

"Dust of Dryness"

I ran a 3.5 one shot to get some practice DMing, and one of my players asked for some slightly used dust of dryness.

For those unfamiliar with the item, dust of dryness can be sprinkled in a body of water to cause a very large volume of that water (roughly a small lake) to condense into a single, small bead. At any time after that, you can throw the bead against a hard surface to release all of the water at once. (slightly used, by the way, meant he got a bead that he didn't need to create)

The party confronted the boss down at the docks. It was intended for them to have a fight and then the boss would get away so they could confront him again at the finale.

The first player up pulls out his bead of water and smashes at the boss's feet. Washes him straight off the wharf and into the water. Of course, I couldn't have had a more beautiful opportunity for the boss to escape if I planned it, so the mid-session fight was a little ati-climactic, but I tried to make up for it later.

"Small packages huh?"

What if your entire character is the package? Pathfinder has a race called wyrwood- they're animate wooden doll people who turned on the mages who were misusing them and stole the secret of how to make more. Depending on your class- like, say, a rogue- they're also tiny little combat machines that are super hard to deal with.
Short version if the story? I solo wrecked an Orc chief with a sneak attack/called shot to the eyes. No penalties cause I was as small as them :)

"Biiig Bada-boom"

I once played a Halfling Monk that took down a Grey Render single-handedly. It had me dead to rights. I was currently being 'grappled' (in its mouth), and was down to my last hit point. I had gotten ahead of the rest of the party, and there was no way they were going to be in time to bail me out. I knew my character was going to die the next round. So, rather than try to escape from the thing's jaws, I instead rolled one final defiant attack.

Aimed at myself.

Or rather, at the Necklace of Fireballs I was wearing.

If I remember correctly, the ensuing chain-reaction did about 35d6 of damage. I immolated myself, the monster, and pretty much everything in a 10-foot radius.

Hmm... I wonder if I can make necklaces of fireball, and put each bead on a piece of body jewelry...

I could have the single most horrifying bard in existence. I would need to make him a dragonkin or something immune to fire.

"I drop my pants and lift my junk for all to see."

"WHAT."

"I'm not finished! I lift my junk and tear a red bead from one of my piercings, then shove in down his pants."

"...What have you done?"

"Remember when I made those fireball earrings? Well I made about five hundred of them, and put them all over my body."

"Find. You just burned the necromancer to death with a penile piercing. Is there anything else you would like to add?"

"I open my shirt and reveal over fifty more on my chest. I reach up and delicately grasp the ones dangling from my nipples, with an evil grin on my face."

"You are a dragon man. You don't have nipples."

"Remember when I asked about cosmetic surgery, and you said it was rather expensive?"

"No. You didn't. Please, no."

"They're prehensile."

"Nope. Game over. All of them explode and you are crushed to death by the blast pressure."

"Aww, but they had eyes in the tips and everything!"

"Oh dear crap! That's where you had that extra pair of eyes implanted?"

In the series,Zorro was origally supposed to be part of Buggy's crew.You know, the crew of the guy with "warpaint" at his face and elfen shoes? De crew full of jugglers and lion tamers?

I believe Zorro was even supposed to be a recurring villain!

I don't know why Oda mad him a good guy, but I'm very very happy about it. He's still one my favorit characters of the team.

"I'm probably wrong but..."

When it comes to weapons, my experience is that you get what you pay for... but sometimes "inexpensive and disposable" is what you need.

Investing in a single, expensive weapon is just begging for said weapon to get lost, stolen, or damaged... even if the GM isn't trying to target it (initially).

I mean, disarming enemies is the typical "good guy" tactic while if you really are the villain and the hero has a good weapon, you steal it. The GM avoiding that for too long when you've got that Sword of Awesome makes your foes artificially "nice" and/or stupid.

Now if this is a system that offers "protection" for your weapons, like GURPS with the Signature Gear advantage... go ahead. With how Mihawk's weapons perform in the actual one piece, I am assuming the risk of theft or damage is so negligible, it isn't an issue. Zoro's swords on the other hand...

Yet more evidence of Mihawk using Legacy champion. There's a feat that allows them to Sacrifice excess treasure to buff their signature weapon.

"SunBlade"

so one of the games I was running a while back had a guest appearance from one of my coworkers. He decided to run a paladin in the game I was running and had spent almost all of his starting gold on a sunblade. The rest of the party was unimpressed. Until of course they had to fight a grave knight and his army of undead minions.

Later when I ended up building a Gnome paladin I remembered the sunblade and invested in one, since it counted as a short sword as well I was able to wield it quite effectively.

"Instant Fortress"

[thought of this story when I saw the name above me]

I was playing a gnome wizard in a epic level pathfinder game, named Zok. Zok was well... poorly designed for this game since I batmaned him out with all sorts of craft magical items and got thrown into a dudgeon with no downtime and all that to use them with, but zok continued to do his wizardly business, in the background letting the fighters and such melee.

well that was until I was grappled by an illithid. illithids or mindflayers like to eat brains and with my tasty 25+ int Zok was a prime choice. so as I was held grappled in the creatures tenticles, a round away from having my brain ripped out of my skull I resorted to my last defense.
Zok reached into his bag of holding and pulled out a tiny cube that housed an instant fortress. now the instant fortress is nothing to scream about. its an armored house you activate to get a good nights sleep without worrying about things trying to eat you by becoming a giant iron tower. well last round of my life Zok decided that if he was going to die, he was going to take the creature out with him, and so he held the cube directly over the illithid's head and activated it having a giant tower spring into being in a 5x5 corridor squashing it flat. Zok survived though, since the wording on the item said that 'the door opens facing you' Zok just strolled into his fortress. or well tried too. sadly the walls of this particular dungeon were indestructible, so my instant fortress had an instant explosion as it tried to reach maximum size.

and that's why I will always have an instant fortress. be it to crush my enemies moments from death or for the look on people's faces when I activate the fortress within the dragon's mouth.

"I'm totally stealing that idea."

My group's GM has us in an alternate reality/timeline event and is dropping hints that we're going to have to fight Io to force him to split into Bahamut and Tiamat.
