So this is basically "Greatest Chat Group Moments" except it doesn't have to be straight from a chat and you probably get the picture already

But yeah share your stories and greatest moments from tabletop games and/or RPGs, from either playing or running - doesn't have to just be DnD, obviously

Really I just wanted to make this thread as a callout for the huge fucking lesbian @Bigredlittlewolf who, during a fight with a sorceress I set up in the first session, asked as her first question: "How hot is she?"

She got hit with a Thunder Wave for her troubles

If you give me an hour or two, I can go home and grab the "this is the only time someone's laughed about cancer" audio clip

Also my gay ass has been trying to get back to this sorceress too.

this evening: the paladin in our group used her shield and the sun to make a makeshift laser pointer to keep a young, playful indrik from hurting anyone else by accident

monday evening: we broke out of prison, burning it down in the process

she has also, as a player, used Conjure Animals to:
1- have badgers shit on stone griffons
2- airdropped horses on her enemies
3- Snakes. so many snakes. too many snakes.

It's a bit quiet, because we recorded it as our first microphone test. But here you go. The gang specifically laughing at cancer.

They’re a new discovery, and they seem to be a mixture of outgoing and shy. Loves things related to art and writing. Somehow writes on mobile
My best story is the time i convinced my DM to let me run a character that was a Necromancing Naturalist Cactus. Using the power of nature to ressurect and control the dead. Dm let me keep the cactus sheet face down for most of the run, so it looked like I just had a skeleton with this obsession with this single cactus.
Three of the party members had Paladin characters, and the other characters were all light aspects/generally against necromancy. They tried numerous times to get rid of my skeleton, and each time either the dm or I managed to thwart them.
Roll into late game. About lv 17-18 or so. We’re in a dungeon belonging to some sort of undead god and one of the paladins makes a risky move to sacrifice my skeleton to the undead god in order to summon it so they could kill it.
And the dice were in their favor.
They took my skeleton.
The DM goes silent while the rest of the team rejoices. Then, DM ominously says;
“You have angered the cactus. Roll for magical protection. Fal, roll magic.”
:3 basically my cactus had a late game spell that was home brewed and let me take control of a living character, sucking the life out of them to either empower or heal the cactus. Useable once per game.
The poor paladin that sacrificed my skeleton was the one who rolled the lowest, and my cactus had a high magic since I invested well into it... so yeah.
I basically stole someone’s character and the rest of my group hated me and my cactus for the rest of the game. XD

This user does not exist. All impressions to the contrary are propaganda pieces and not to be trusted.
My one and only experience with tabletops was an MiB-esque D&D oneshot, where we were supposed to be a bunch of highly experienced lv20s preserving The Masquerade, and we spent the first hour and a half trying to remove an animatronic fortune teller from a bar.

Also got my first TPK, because sometimes you just have the insatiable urge to create an earthquake about 100ft underground and planeshift away because it's 1am, the session lasted about three hours longer than was promised and there was an increasing sentiment that we needed to wrap the session up somehow.

@Z-nogyroP I USED DETECT POISON AND DISEASE I DIDN'T JUST SHOVE THE CHOCOLATE BAR IN MY MOUTH

@Faleep that is... one of the most original character concepts I've ever heard XD what did the paladin's original player do after they got their character stolen?

This was from a recently-completed campaign I was a part of.

Specifically, I played the sorcerer mentioned in the post. This was just one of the many shenanigans we got into.

That same group has started a new campaign (still in dnd 5e) now. In which we have... an edgelord elf wizard, a deadpan dhampir cleric, an overly enthusiastic superhero warforged fighter, and... well, the githyanki hasn't joined us yet (since the player was absent on our first session this past weekend), but pretty sure she's another edgy one/disaster gay. There's at least a little bit of homebrew going around, if the dhampir didn't make that obvious, so we'll see how that goes mechanically. In character though, it's already a wild ride. I will be sure to track shenanigans to share here.

@Bigredlittlewolf basically yeah! XD

@Huntress Wizard they had to make a new character cause unlike everyone else in the campaign they elected to not take on one of the many playable npcs we ran into. They stuck solely to their paladin. Until I yoinked it.
That was the only run I did with that particular group, but they play in a shop I frequent for cards so I see the DM and the players from time to time. The DM occasionally keeps me updated with other shenanigans that happens.
I’ve got another story that didn’t happen in a campaign i was in, but was in a campaign a friend was DM’ing.
My friend basically had a two party run set up, the players were one party and there was an NPC party that he controlled. They two parties became close friends n shit, until about mid game...
When the npc party got attacked by a group of Were-animals. (I say animals cause not a single one of them was a werewolf. There was a tiger, rat, bear, Goat, and I think a hyena? Or maybe a fox.)
The player party knew that the npc party had gotten attacked and went to their aid, and found out the truth during the next full moon.
What my friend did not expect for one of his players, a Huntsman with a few points into animal handling, to look at the DM, say, “my huntsman points to the tiger and shouts, ‘kitty!’ And I was to roll for animal handling.”
And then que the huntsman rolling an 18, plus his like, +4 proficiency in animal handling, against the DM’s 12 +6 for feral resistance.
My friend complained to me about the the damned huntsman tamed the feral were-tiger which was not how that encounter was supposed to go.

@Bug HELL YEAH

we were also allowed to use Revised Ranger which was nice when the Elder Tempest ass-blasted all of us with a Lightning Storm; it meant that Bottle did not instantly shrivel up and die. i'm hoping that future fights will let me do more attacking with both the little dragon and the flying lizard :D Bottle kind of had to be a good little mount and not move around much this fight, so that Ptadri could pick away at the tempest with her bow without getting too close

i was in the same campaign as @Huntress Wizard and i was playing basically the worst character to ever exist, he's a furby rogue with legs and he inflicted 76 damage in a single attack

his mere existence was enough to tilt the elder tempest we were fighting off the face of the planet and at one point he hid as a bonus action by burying himself in the sand and she just couldn't find him

i like running the campaign i do because in the same session i can have my players relax in a spa run by some sapient pipes and a toilet monster, and then have a horrific long-legged abomination stab their adopted child through the eye

@Frostmourne @Z-nogyroP



i love Dungeons and Dragons because in one game i play a paladin who's been looking for her parents for nine years, blames the gods for their disappearance, and has killed one of them already

while in another game i play a wildly flippant tabaxi rogue who climbed a tree and then couldn't get down
