"Tell a Story: Never Get Between 2 Munchkins"

When titans war, mortal s tremble.

Share a story about when you or someone else accidentally got in the way when super powerful players went no holds barred. It doesn't even need to be PvP.

Not two munchkins, but I DID have a PC of mine deliberately piss off and start fighting an enemy NPC who was very deliberately overpowered. My DM (with a little help from moi) created a race of monsters called Eugir, which are basically warmongering rhino-people the size of elephants (so none of this 'technically medium' Loxodon stuff- these guys are BIG). He uses them as your standard "You can negotiate or run. Fighting is a bad idea" set dressing.

I, however, was playing a low-wisdom Cleric of the God of Eternal War. So OF COURSE I picked a fight with the giant war-rhino-man!

Kashak managed to survive, because he was just looking to fight, not necessarily win. Endless war means nobody dies, after all.

Well, there's the time my party was fighting a storm giant. The cleric had min/maxed for AC, and the wizard was a power gamer. The DM had the storm giant pick up the cleric and throw him at the wizard.

I mean, generally AC covers grappling too. Though I think it's a touch attack to engage grappling, so it could get around certain builds I suppose.

Definitely depends on the game. 5e, you just immediately make an athletics check opposed by their athletics or acrobatics.

Just realized I had one of my own.

There was a D&D group a friend of mine brought me to, they met curing lunch in highschool, and they were "hard geeks." Like, heavy metal, but they're idiots at the same time without looking like regular geeks. I ended up getting sick of their shit pretty quick and never returned after a few encounters.

They had a home brew where you rolled a D100 a few times, and you got what super powers you got.

I got flying, fire control, and kinetic control. So I could fly, null all physical and fire damage, throw fire and demolish anything with a punch.

I was basically a knock off Superman.

So, after having a surprise fight with a dragon I womped, back in town I encounter some effing random NPC who treats me like s$#@. So I said that I give him the middle finger. The Effing drawf starts attacking me, botches his first roll and his axe desintegrates, so now we're punching each other in the middle of the street.

My buddy comes back from getting some chow and asks what's up, and is told, "Your friend is fighting your old character, Dwarf WhatsHisName." "Oh, man! He's in trouble!"

And I'm just lackadasically punching this dwarf out with megaton fists in the middle of a city street because they wouldn't let me just 1HKO him with a concussive force "Because dwarves are immune to unconciousness." And I'm taking zero damage because the dwarf doesn't have a weapon anymore. And they wouldn't let me just cut through the BS rolling to the obvious conclusion of the fight.

My participation in the game ended very quickly after that.

Should have just crotch kicked or some duck-low-and-upper-cut and see how they argue the dwarf doesn't go flying away.

Gordon should have attacked from a distance. He forgot about theses two's reach.
