"Tell a Story: About a time when your GM over acted out a scene"

GMs are usually theatric, since it comes with the territory. Telling stories about your player's potentially untimely death every week. But when has your GM, or player, been... too theatric about something?

I have a blow up doll, specifically to use as my partner while acting out the scenes. Yes, I do go above and beyond. It is actually hilarious for some, and intensely creepy to others. And nobody ever questions my ability to intimidate, especially after I act out a torture scene with it.

Once you've seen a man roofie a blow up doll, mutilate her, torture her, and vivisect her into some form of living furniture, then sell her to an infamous dictator known for killing his subjects on a whim, you will have seen something unusual.

Also, for reference, I think that was the most uncomfortable I have ever seen that group. Suggesting it in order to interrogate someone is one thing, but my character brought home a random girl he roofied, and did this right in front of the woman he was going to interrogate. Breaking bones and setting them, wiring joints to be unable to move, burning decorative patterns into her flesh, all manner of horrible things pantomimed with the doll.

And that poor woman, strapped to the table, watching all of this. I merely said to her, "If you talk, I promise to kill you before I do this to you." I have never seen an NPC talk more readily.

And yes, that character was very, very evil. I got enough roleplaying xp to gain a whole level, on the condition I never use props to act out a torture scene again.

"Theatrical Story Time"

On a much lighter note, I as the DM once pulled out all the stops for a royal wedding between two NPCs. I made a playlist, picked out clothes, wrote up a big ol' guest list, had custom vows, and at the climax of the event I served my players actual cake. I even constructed a calendar system for the setting to ensure it would occur on a significant date, then figured out the equivalent real-world date and held the session at that time.

Good God, man!

You just frightened me more than Raxon!

Just for that, Raxon, I should start telling stories about my favorite character to role-play. He was chaotic neutral, but chaotic evil about sex. Because of that trait, the other players in my group called him "The Pervert." He deserved that nickname, too.

My usual group and I were all set to take out the main villain of the campaign. Apparently, the DM had spent a few weeks practicing this guy's speech (the villain was some sort of cult leader type) for this final confrontation. The entire campaign was well thought out, maps, pages of back story and lore... The works. Anyway, we were going over our battle plan to assault the compound when the wizard notices that the compound was located downstream of a rather large dam. Long story short, through a creative combination of spells and explosives we dropped millions of gallons on the compound and in the process denied the DM the chance to give his epic villain speech.

In our defense, the DM did say that if we did not want a TPK we would have to get creative.

After my character was mind controlled (succubus thingy from story a while back.) I dogeza'd since my character was from the equivalent of japan in the world. That's the best I've got.
