Minor typo there, mate. "Would've have happened"

Wait, didn't Zoro get his ass kicked down to normal? I think the GM is forgetting part of this equation.

"Tell a Story: Vehicular Playerslaughter"

It's not just guns that kill people. It's also swords, arrows, and fireballs. Occasionally, it's also chariots or other craft, if you can swing the axils the right way.

Share a story about a time when you were successful, or completely failed, to ram or run something over with a vehicle.

Had a guy who tried to do this with the London metro. He had the guys set up rails so he could drive it out of the subway and onto the city streets. The words death toll and collateral damage involved four digits and nine digits, respectively. A player character lost a foot from it.

It was a superby crafted distraction.

(i cant remember the character's first name) Dahl.
from the TriStarBebopLands campaign.
The founder and owner of the Rosewall mercenary company was VERY proficient with his Bulldog (a six shot 12 gauge revolver pistol); BUT was more likely to run you over using the company 'jeep' (our hover car with attached anti-vehicular cannon).

Two or three times if you were unlucky. And we watched him do so more than he fired his pistol (we counted, he fired three shots out of the dam thing).

I was running a super hero campaign, and the group was still getting used to one another (in character). So, when one of them tried to rig a car to crash into a cyborg serial killer in the city, it looked like they were going to very quickly become road kill. Until someone playing a Danny Phantom expy shot a blast at the cyborg and knocked them right out of the path of the oncoming car. It plowed into some dudes house instead.

"Mildly related"

I casted blindness on the enemy's quetzlcoatl mount, which then crashed and had both of them take lots of falling damage.

Well, a friend of mine managed to argue that a truck counted as an improvised weapon with which an unaware target can be backstabbed.

Better yet, it turns out that the Warhammer 40K RPGs have rules for conducting a field of energy over the prow of a battleship, which already ram things like a steam train through a prize pumpkin. Said field is much the same as the sort that let mere swords cut through tank armor or hammers smash through any armor, except that it's on a starship scale.

My current gaming group has a really smart guy who does really dumb things. In a part of the campaign where the party is fighting aerospace fighters by dogfighting them in enchanted flying rowboats with elementally charged cannons mounted on them, this guy decides he's going to leap from his rowboat and land on a passing enemy aircraft (the sort of thing that only happens because things take turns) in order to "kill it" by ramming his greatsword through the cockpit.

He missed, and spent half an hour trying to convince me that he should take less falling damage because he threw his bag of holding in front of him to "break up the surface tension" of the water that they were fighting over.

I would pay to paly with people arguing like that (if they are good sports about it/not obsessing).

Ic an offer better though.
In a dead Scion Campaign, one of the Scions, son of Sun Wokung (ergo Son Goku^^) decided that stopping the huge, amped up basilisk the size of 3-4 buses was best done by dropping a scyscraper on it (by using a mix of boons and huge Strength+Artefact Hammer).
With people inside.

One of the sessions I missed with my main group had an interesting inversion of this. The rest of the party was carrying out a literal info dump via dropping thousands of flyers over a city when they are interrupted by a fleet of helicopters. Our min-maxed wildshaping barbarian decided to take the fight to them by shifting into a bear and jumping into the rotors. After casually tossing the favored soul onto a roof. The DM ran it a a saving throw against death, which of course he passed. So, we had a bear body-slam a chopper that was firing guns and missiles at him. The resulting crash toppled a skyscraper and put a major wrench in the plans I had spent weeks setting up. Kinda worth it, annoyed I missed it.

Ah, this is a memory for me. My first Pathfinder character was one unlucky rogue. He would be cool and stealthy at times, but he had a knack for finding the strangest sources of damage. He had successfully taken damage from a tindertwig (Matches, yes. Even matches), a sparrowhawk, and bees.

At any rate, we were fighting on a merchant ship besieged by pirates. I decided to try climbing the mast and running across to to the other ship. As soo as I reached the end of the mast, a wave forced balance checks on everyone. Crit one at that time of all times forced me into the water.

Then the boats came together. "Take 3d8 boat damage!" was the call. Still survived, if only just.

Well, one of my friend's characters managed to cut off his hand while looting a corpse, then fail an insanely easy tumble check after failing a climb rope check, and broke his neck falling 20 feet.

...were you playing a "everything is mimic's" campaign or something? How does someone just lose a hand looting a corpse?

Does a flying mountain held aloft by the immense telekinetic powers of the villain count as a vehicle?

If not, I've got nothing.

A little while ago, I was a late entry to a D20 Modern group. The DM ruled that to explain my character getting into his quarantined, zombie-infested wasteland, I had to have some sort of flying vehicle. So I picked one out, tweaked the flavour to fit his setting better, and he approved it.

My first game, I screamed in with my Avro Arrow and landed on my little brother's character. You see, flying a supersonic jet interceptor doesn't work very well when your character's vision is so bad you automatically fail all navigation, search, spot, and ranged weapon checks. ALL of them.

My group was at the top of some rapids trying to transport their new, incredibly heavy adamantine chest. Due to an illusion, the paladin, the monk, and the wizard all got caught in the rapids, and ended up at the bottom, where a very hungry Gelatinous Cube was just waiting to engulf them.
The monk player did not like being trapped, and managed to convince the remaining two members of the party that the best way to help their comrades was to ride their chest down the rapids, and ram it into the cube. At this succeeded, and the chest plunged itself into the cube - in the spot where the monk currently was, killing both him and his captor.

Luke kinda made his own balance check more difficult than necessary by standing there.
