"storys"

tell a STORY, about when you or your GM totally forgot about some ability, spell, modifier, or WHATEVER during a game. Preferably with shenangians occuring

We Were Lv 5 and the city got attacked by 2 Adult red dragons, We were supposed to flee after an adventure to find parts to fix an experimental Airship, But I just got Wildshape so I cast Call Lightning on myself then turned into a Perriguine Falcon and Kited one of them with my superior Air speed while our gnome !!SCIENCED!! the other one to death, The DM forgot that the dragons had the option to land and cast Dispel magic instead of sticking around in loosing air battles vs a bird thst shoots lightning and an Insane Gnome scientist.

There was this one time, I rigged up a barrel of healing potions along with some fancy mechanisms and a decanter of endless water to a valve. This allowed be to run a hose into my backside and have a constant supply of healing potion pumped into me. At a max rate of +200 hp per turn.

At some point, the DM forgot I could do this, and thus, all attempts by the big bad to wear me down ended disastrously. The final confrontation was hilariously easy, since I was not extremely armored, I just had unlimited hp. I just stood there and stabbed the big bad to death while everyone else did their cute little tactical maneuvers.

That battle ended about four turns in.

We fought against some Ice-Drow (DMs Brainchild) who invaded our city. One encounter was against 6 of them + 1 Ice-Troll. The DM hinted that we should kill the troll fast, since it had a rather devastatink attack it could charge up.
So we killed it rather quickly.

Then the Ice-Drow used their ice-weapons to revive the troll. :( DM's excuse was, that he came up with it on the spot. I don't remember, how we survived...

Oh, and there was this "nice" touch of the ice weapons melting, so we didn't get loot, even though it was +3 or something :(

To be honest, I think more DMs should do the 'the enemy's weapons, though deadly in their hands, are useless and valueless to you' thing, especially in a party of packracts. I remember I managed to convince my group once to get a cart just because it would make more sense that lugging around a dozen crossbows and 20+ swords of various kinds.

So my GM's a bit....massively forgetful of small pieces of the game's rules (this is 3.5e). Anyway it rubbed off on me somewhat and I realized that pirate ships don't have fort saves. We later figured out that ships are immune to effect that requires a fort save.

This was after my character (a Warmage with a homebrewed spell list) cast Blast of Force at a pirate ship and then knocked it prone. We defined prone as lying on the ground and thus within 6 seconds the boat went from floating on the top of the water to the bottom of the ocean floor. GM then cried a bit that his ranged ship battle was ruined. Us players laughed. The end.

P.S There's actually a lot more instances of these kinds of things happening but this one was quite easily my favorite as we knocked a ship prone. It became our mantra and first solution to every situation after.

When designing our first combat encounter after acquiring Imperial Knights (basically giant mechas), the GM chose a lot of Tyranid creatures with acid to erode our very high armor scores.
He forgot the knights're immune to armor reduction. (And I'm pretty sure he built their Dark Heresy rules himself based on the wargame rules.) End result, we punch, rip, burn, and shoot our way through a full-scale invasion force of 'nids without much harm, though it was touch-and-go for a while once their Bio-Titan showed up.

Two words: Adamantine sundering.

A dual-wielding fighter apparently means I can hack through any obstacle in my way.

In one campaign, the GM included some "Tarot Cards" that he'd originally made for a Rifts campaign (note that we were playing 3.5). Some of the cards could be used to change class or race (intended to allow a player to respec a character completely without having to start the *character* over). However... we realised that he never specified that those ones had to be used on OURSELVES (many of the cards could be used on other things or people - one of the cards could only be used on other cards, since its effect was to *reverse* the effect of the card; I'm not entirely sure what the effect would have been for something like "change to a race of your choice", but it never came up). What this led to was us using that card frequently to de-power enemies... usually by turning them into gnomes. First time we did it, we turned a dragon into a gnome (honestly I don't know how we were *supposed* to have won that encounter, it was WELL above our CR level). One of the party members insisted we KEEP the gnome with us - not as a hostage. As a MEMBER OF THE PARTY. -_- Later, I used the card again to turn some other enemy that was terrorizing a major city, into a gnome. However, one of the other PCs was... I forget if he was going to kill it himself, or he was working for it (he ended up basically turning on the party and getting separate sessions IN ADDITION to the main ones, which meant he also got extra exp -_- still not happy about that favoritism). Either way, he was mad, so he came to attack me... and I turned him into a gnome. Shortly after (and note that I was at that moment, a Silver Dragon), the PC who had insisted we adopt the dragon-turned-Gnome pulled me into her demiplane (oh, yeah, she somehow ended up as a demigod of fire). Which is full of fire, and therefore would be hostile territory (Silver Dragons? yeah, fire is BAD for them). So I immediately used a card and became a GOLD Dragon (which admittedly actually was better anyways). We later found out that the ability she used actually requires there to be a "safe" place for "visitors" to go to, so retroactively I didn't HAVE to change... but because I did, I had to stick with it. -_- Needless to say, the GM altered the rules with his Tarot Cards somewhat.

Not exactly relevant, but shortly after, we ended up fighting a recurring boss... and beat him with... shall we say, a rather unusual tactic. One of the cards basically gave us access to 1 of 10 Summons (a la Final Fantasy). Somehow, we had, between us, 3 of one particular Summon. So... all 3 ended up being used (1st one popped his bubble shield thing (an effect from ANOTHER card), 2nd one killed him, but he auto-rezzed due to ANOTHER card, 3rd one finished him off for real). That summon... was Phantom Train. We all joked about how that place (the inside of the PALACE, no less) basically became Grand Central Station.

Oh, by the way, DT, I will be posting a special Halloween comment, if you don't mind. Nothing so horrible it needs to be censored, I assure you. If you want me to not post it, let me know, but I think you'll be entertained by it as well.

It gets a little bit creepy, but it's not too scary, since I have to condense it down to fit in a single comment. No room to really build up the suspense with a one page post, you know?

No offense to DragonTrainer, as this is one helluva cool comic, but the comments are probably a full half of the reason I read this. Every update, I go back to the last update to read the new comments.

I agree. DT has a sort or community here, and it's entertaining to see all the conversations.

I think full credit goes to raxon in that regard though. The pure insanity of his stories makes the rest of us comfortable (if a little disappointed with how mundane ours are in comparison) with sharing our own.

Yeah, this is the first strip I've commented on, precisely because I never thought I had a good enough story since you guys consistently set the bar so dang high.
