Gelukkig is dit niet Derk...

Lekker, maar niks met de game te maken.

Gelukkig is dit niet Derk...

Post by Kieron Hellblade » 19 Oct 2013 00:25

I was DM for a game and sent my players to explore a dungeon. Inside the dungeon were "tests" based on the Gods their characters worshiped. When they passed one of these tests, they were given a Magic Flying Carpet.

The Carpet was partially sentient. It couldn't speak, but it responded to commands and could feel basic emotions.

Our resident Wizard was wounded while standing on the Carpet, while the other players were battling enemies on the ground. The Carpet became scared and flew up toward the ceiling, still carrying the bleeding-out Wizard.

It was terrified and wouldn't come down.

Once the fighting was done, time was running out for the Wizard but the other players couldn't coax the Carpet to fly back to the ground. They couldn't reason with it, couldn't reach it to steer it down, and couldn't seem to knock the Wizard off of it.

So naturally they shot at it with crossbows. I was very careful and tried not to smile and show my hand.

"Are you sure you want to shoot it down?" I asked politely.

"Yeah," said our Fighter, "It sucks to lose it, but we have to save (our Wizard)"

They took aim, fired and...

I told them the bolts shot right through the Carpet. Killed the Wizard instantly.

The armour properties of carpet are woefully ineffective.

Needless to say, the Wizard was pissed.

Fighter, you see a longsword. It looks to be enchanted.
(Fighter): I grab it and give it a few swings in the air.

Fighter, as you swing it you realise it is a plus one longsword.
You also realise the handle has the face of a woman crafted of
silver in it, and tears are streaming from her face. They feel wet
on your hand.
(Fighter): I put the new longsword in my scabbard and throw away the old rusty one.

The old longsword clatters away. Fighter, your new sword is
made of a combination of ebony and silver. As it leaves your hand,
you feel a telepathic voice in your mind, "Oh, is that it? A couple
of swipes in the air, then into your scabbard?"
(Fighter): I look at the handle of the new sword and I grab it once again, I think as i try to direct my thoughts into the sword, "No, no, my love, I'm just keeping you for a worthy opponent so you can show me your real strength".

"Oh my", gushes Fighter's sword. "Finally, a real man."

"And you LOVE me!"

~Five minutes later~

Everyone spins around.
(Fighter): I also spin around.

The female troll has bent the bars using a large rock

Fighter, the sword starts crying again and screams in your
head, "Are you LOOKING at another woman!?"
(Fighter): "Erhm, no, this is just a worthy opponent to test your strength on."

"I will cut that bitch's head off. Nobody takes my man."

Cue battle with party vs troll, punctuated by the vengeful screams
of Scornblade.

The scope of this sword has only just begun.

Nu lach je nog, maar als je eenmaal oog in oog (nou ja, meer 'verblindende gloed van de zon' dan een 'oog' natuurlijk) staat met deze vijand en de wolkenzwaarden eenmaal naar beneden komen piep je wel anders.

Ja, want zwaarden gemaakt van wolken staan erom bekend hoe scherp ze zijn.

Er vraagt iemand of je mensen moet waarschuwen als ze een Daily gebruiken op een minion. Iemand beargumenteert dat je dit niet moet doen, het is realistisch en zet de toon. Iemand anders geeft ook zijn mening.
Letting your players spend their daily to take out a minion (and do nothing else) indeed really sets a tone for the game. The tone is fuck you!
