Ahhh, Player Characters. If its not a plan that sounds stupid, then something is very wrong.

Gamers have all sorts of idiosyncrasies. Some of us have lucky dice we save for emergencies, some of us pre roll out all the 1s, , and some of us will make a particular face or gesture when we think we have a "brilliant " idea.

I hope there weren't too many people who watched the clip I linked to a couple strips ago. It's worth the wait, trust me.

Don't go look for it.

Wait for Wednesday, then go back and see the original version.

It's worth the wait.

""If it's stupid and it works, it ain't stupid.""

One of the best things about tabletop games, especially if you have a DM that's willing to improvise or bend the rules, is the ability to do things outside of what's just listed in your abilities list on your character sheet. Not only does this leave room for hilarious scenes, but gives the chance for player characters to come up with Scooby Doo levels of tricks, traps, and plans.

Tell a story about a time where you or another character came up with a strategy or plan that was, at best, completely absurd or insane. Bonus points if it actually WORKED.

"Because it was funny"

So there I was. In a WoD Mage game with my character'a girlfriend being hauled off by two demonic spirits. There was a short snack break and I went over the combat rules again because my brain was currently working like a sieve. When I read the improvised weapon rules. I had that precise grin. We get back to the table and I announce that I am going to grapple the one with a head like an alligator. I pass the hold check by one. It would have been higher but there's this thing you can do to do multiple actions if you split your dice. I cast my spell. Then proceeded to beat up the other Demon with the demon I was holding. XD And thanks to the durability rules I had an object which did +12 damage because of the Demon's own toughness. And every hit surpassed their stamina so they were both stunned. I maintain my character found the repeated crunches very satisfying. Mage smash puny demons. XD Not practical, but damn satisfying.

To quote a different webcomic:

42. "They'll never expect this" means "I want to try something stupid."

43. If it's stupid and it works, it's still stupid and you're lucky.

"It's either stupid or brilliant"

Star Wars D20; party is a jedi hunter team of (mostly) Imperial Inquisition; I'm playing a career military pilot attached to their team to fly the damn ship around and provide firepower. Character is big, strong, and straightforward to a fault. The Inquisitors have managed to get betrayed by their superior who's trying to steal credit for their work, and are in a jail cell on board a Star Destroyer; I'm back with the ship in the hangar, which was remotely locked down. The team's slicer manages to get us out of the ship, and while trying to rescue our teammates in the Inquisition's cells, we manage to sneak our way into an evidence locker full of dangerous contraband. I load up a hover sled with all sorts of goodies, including a tripod mounted heavy repeating blaster... set up, plugged in, and ready to fire.

The DM is usually a good sport and figured he'd let us grab some small items (like explosives!), but he wanted to know how I wouldn't immediately raise an alarm walking around towing that.

"I put evidence tags on everything. A Stormtrooper is really going to interfere with an inquisition officer bringing evidence?"
