"Tell a Story: Technicaly innocent"

Gamers LOVE semantics. It's what sets casuals apart from the manipulative masters. Nothing says a Role Player more that saying something like, "Technically, I'm not the one who stole your money..."

Share a story of a time someone was guilty as sin, but was technically completely innocent.

Not quite a case where the player was guilty, but they were tasked with rescuing a pixie from a haunted fort. They confronted the ghost and successfully rescued the pixie. On their way back, through the forest that surrounded the fort, they were confronted by the tribe of elves that ruled the forest. The Pixie had been spying on them (for the person that hired the heroes to rescue her) and only ran to the fort to escape their pursuit.

The Elves only wanted the pixie and were willing to let the rest of the heroes go. The paladin offered a one-on-one sword duel with the Elf Lord on the promise that if he won they could have the pixie. The Elves laughed at that because she was by their laws already theirs and the paladin had to wager his sword (which was a special artifact bound to his soul) before the Elf Lord agreed. Meanwhile, the Rogue is addressing the GM 'Technically, I am the one one freed her from the fort, and the one keeping hold of her, and I didn't agree to this.' Luckily for them the paladin won the duel, because otherwise his semantics would have been worth nothing to the elves.

Our party's bard in 3.5 saved the rest of us from being eaten by a giant squid. By feeding it an entire orphanage instead, Pied Piper-style. He told the orphans he was taking them to SeaWorld.

Of course, we got back to town to discover that the orphanage was secretly a halfling drug cartel ruling the town with an iron fist, and it was actually a good thing, but the bard had no way of knowing that at the time.
