"I wonder..."

Is there a feat somewhere that allows one to dual wield shields? I feel like you might be able to manage a bard build that would allow for a particularly high AC with shields that also serve as cymbals.

In their world, there is most likely a splat book for that feat. Go make that Cymbal-Shield Bard a thing. Now. I want it

"dual wield shields"

For a while during the early beta of 5.0, few was more OP than the barbarian dual veilding spiked shields, in light to no armor. a level 3 could easely have an 30+ ac, and do fairly decent damage. I miss that patch, was in my opinion better than the finished product.

Might have been because the fighter was finally good as something other than "Mister muscle guy smash stuff hard." Aw well

I personally like this version. I prefer that everything be nearly equal instead of having a bunch of min-maxers trying to outpower everyone else.

I am really impressed at how adapting the combat into a Davy Back Fight is coming along so well.

"Tell a story"

Tell a story where your players derailed everything you planned, then derailed the plan you came up with to deal with the results of your first derailing.

Alternatively, tell a story where you derailed the DM so hard that he/she cried.

"Caught everyone flat-footed"

Well they didn't actually derail the way I saved it, but I think this story qualifies, because they derailed themselves...

I made a simple evil sect worshiping Tiamat and the PCs found out, where in the city they were. Instead of the expected kick-in-the-door approach, they actually disguised themselves as cultists visiting from another city. Together with some quite good bluff checks, they got in and kept talking to one of the cultists.
So far, it was still not that bad.

Then the little girl in the party started looking around and lifting up the tapestry on the wall. She looked directly into a crossbow bolt, since there was a slot to shoot through. But still combat didn't ensue. she just apologised, put the tapestry back, and asked the cultist, why there was a guy behind the wall. *awkward*

The actually kept talking to the point, where no one knew what to do now. They actually asked me to let the bad guys attack them.

In the end the Grand master entered, realized, they were heroes and finally they fought.

The best was one guys description: We caught the enemy, DM and finally ourselves flat-footed.

This was the second ill conceived attempt at a god campaign on the GiantITP forums. I'm not exactly sure why I thought this would be any different or better, but I digress.

I was the god of Undeath. My friend was the god of Warhammer 40,000 style Orcs. We fought a war. Eternally. Not because we hated each other, but because we were the only ones worthy of having a fight with.

One person, who was kind of running things decided to introduce demons. Apparently the metal as all hell gods? We were supposed to be intimidated and afraid.

The short version is that the person who created the demons didn't much care for the idea of us using them in our eternal war and decided when we summon them that they turned into goo.

The Orc god ate some and had wicked indigestion. I wasn't going to let him show me up and followed suit. We referred to this as demon jam, and turned it into a delicacy.

I'm not sure if he was literally crying, but it's not outside the realm of possibility.

I know I've read the story before, & I'm pretty sure it was someone else retelling it. Took a look at the dead threads, but didn't get far.

"Correlation"

Sanji basically does the same thing hundreds of episodes/chapters later. It'd make sense in this world if that was some feat or martial artist power ability, and he finds a way to put it on Sanji, but majorly buffed. Also, to quote PurpleeyesWTF,

"Look at it this way. How could this get any stupider then it already is?"
*Zoro (Or in this case, Pearl) Runs up*
"Hey kids, wanna be on fire?"

Acctually, setting yourself on fire is a great idé, provided that you have high enough fire resistance (quite easely to manage, plenty of races have a 5 resistance, have a feat/trait or something to up it to ten, and light yourself up). it's a measly 1d6 of damage, and odds are, noone that grabs you will be fire resistant,

If you are a laweyer worth a damn you should be abel to lawayer that grappling with someone that is on fire is HARD since it hurts, and that your CMD should count as higher against grapes (suggestively that d6 fire damage harder).

Only problem is that being on fire technically can damage your gear, which is why you might want to spring for salamander or dragon-hide pants, or roleplay that awkwardness of always losing your pants during fights...

BRB, just have to make Andrew the awkward, the hugerseed theifling barbarian that keeps losing his pants during fights...

Or just be on fire all the time instead of just combat and refer to the fire as your Hot pants.

My Gnomish Cleric of Fire (drew his divine powers of War straight from the Elemental Plane of Fire) would approve of these messages, even if he never got around to mimicking his Salamander Knight cohort's Heat special quality.
The gestalt Barbarian/Conduit I helped my little sister make had a 4d6 magical flame aura out to 10 feet, but never got to use it on account of mostly fighting shoulder-to-shoulder.
Come to think of it, both those PCs had the full Improved Trip/Knockdown feat chain too.

You know, if you're always on fire I'm not sure you'd need pants. The fire would help keep you warm.

Now you might point out that there are often laws against public nudity, but if you were a guard would YOU mess with a guy who instead of pants has fire?

There is no need for pants and there never was.

After some breif experimenting in Skyrim, I can say yes. Yes they would. And also, I generally use my pockets. Fire doesn't hold things. It just burns them

But what if they're magic pants?
In all seriousness, armor can often take the form of pants, and more AC is a good thing.

"Going by the elemental resist rules of the setting..."

You can resist fire damage by being hotter. So all Sanji has to do is get a feat that lets him be hotter than the fire.

...Seriously, this is the actual explanation: 'his heart burns hotter.' Makes about as much sense as the Lava-Fire thing.
