We tried to be 'Good necromancers' and managed to fuck it up so hard that we became the villains. Drow were invading a city, and we were trying to stop them. Using an ancient nexus of necromantic power, we created an army of the dead, two thousands strong, with three large flesh golems.

Then we exhausted said Nexus and used the power to teleport this army.

To the wrong city.

Massive undead army literally pops up out of nowhere during the king's parade, everybody starts screaming, the five guys in necromantic robes at the head of the army start trying to calm people down by screaming at them, which just makes things worse (we completely flunked every diplomacy and intimidate roll because nobody had those skills), they get attacked by guards and defend themselves using nonlethal chain lightning, making the populace even more terrified. A local death cult took this to be a sign from their god and started summoning even more undead while whispering prayers to the five necromancers.

Before you know it the city is burning, the guard has been decimated, there have been thousands of casualties, and five mages are standing in the centre of the ruins, next to a fountain that has been desecrated, avoiding each other's gaze.

I had to wing out a surprise boss fight against someone one of the player pissed off while they were on a time limit.

I had no stats planned at all for this guy and I winged it out. It worked out fine except for the fact that since they were on a time limit, a character ended up losing her arm.

I swear this isn't intentional, but the two main females character caused a lot more issues than the male cast. Like, one have a really high intelligence score but is so bad at decision making she might as well be a Gainax protagonist. So pic related I suppose.

Party splits, half of us are talking to a skeleton stuck in a spiderweb while the other half battles giant flaming spiders around a corner where we can't see or hear them. They come sprinting back around and tell us there's a bunch of spider eggs. Then they talk to the skeleton, roll better than us, and go off to act on whatever the skeleton told them about. It was treasure and a magic sword none of them could use. Meanwhile I and another player start setting up this elaborate defense for all the spider eggs when they hatch. This trap involves coffins shoved into place, rags soaked in oil, both of us using our daily breath weapon on them, etc. Turns out there were only 3 eggs. So the other half gets the treasure from the skeleton we were talking to, gets a magic sword none of them can use, and doesn't waste all their time on an overkill defense which never even got used.

I'm not sure who's the stupid ones, the ones who led us to believe we were about to be swarmed by spiders or we who never went to confirm this.

I want to be a part of this party. A lot.

"Janeway did it and got away with it" Is never a good guideline.

>> No.40309027

You could also look at a lot of TNG, especially the early episodes. Or DS9 but there it was usually done by people who knew how to get away with shit like that.

>> No.40309092


Yeah, but in TNG Picard at least moralised on it for 45 minutes before doing it anyway, and in DS9 there was war on.

It's telling that no ST Captain got promoted up and out of that command chair quite as quickly as Janeway did. Only Kirk comes close (most likely because the rest of starfleet never beleived half the shit he claimed happened to him, and the other half involved him starting diplomatic incidents.) and in Kirks case he would forever find ways to sneak back onto whatever Enterprise they had running and take command.

>> No.40309193


This is hilarious. How the hell did he make it out of Academy? Pretty sure "wiping out villages" is covered in Cultural Sensitivity training.


IIRC couldn't this statement really apply to *any* of the captains? I'm particularly thinking TOS, TNG, and VOY, and tbf I haven't sat down and binge-watched Star Trek for a while, but IIRC it's pretty much been a tradition for as long as the prime directive has been a thing that it's been treated by more of a guideline by the alternatively hot headed or philosophical captain in a pinch.

Or more often just not brought up by anyone in episodes where it probably would apply but would complicate things too much to discuss.

As I recall the Prime directive was originally about not playing god and screwing around with less technologically developed cultures.

But as time passed, the Federation used it as a 'it's not our problem' get-out-of-moral-dilemmas ticket that they waved around at anything and everyone.

While some of the situations the show covered did have some pretty complex issues surrounding them, the prime directive was usually broken as a consequence of fixing a screwup.

I'm sure there's a wiki with 'list of prime directive violations' or something you could look over.

The party halfling disguise himself as a young elven girl (who was the daughter of a duke, who the halfling killed, starting a rebellion). The party disguised themselves as merchants, taking themselves to the king to tell about the rebellion, and reuinite the "daughter" with her mother, and also say that the duke is dead.
Then, the evil mage dude controlling the king tried to comfort the grieving widow, but the duchess said no. So then they hatched a plan where they invited the mage into the duchess's room at night (she was elsewhere), and then pushed the mage out the window and interrogated him in their wagon, revealing that the evil mage was evil!

We stole all the things from an off-the-books, highly secret, probably definitely illegal magical artifacts auction.

See, the thing was, that wasn't the run. The run was a personal thing for one of the team members - he wanted a guy killed, and that guy happened to be the owner of the mansion that the auction was going down at. The guy also happened to be a stupidly powerful mage.

The whole... stealing unknown and probably definitely illegal magical artifacts was a "well shit niqqa we ain't a charity, you want our help you gotta pay us" type of deal.

The run itself was elaborately planned - it took like, three IRL sessions, each a week apart due to cross-country players and an international GM - and went down as expected. We had four people planted inside the manor (there was an above-board auction taking place as a smoke screen, one of our guys went in as part of a news crew covering that event; our mage went in super-invisible; and our physad was the +1 of a contact that had a legitimate in) and a sniper on a hillside 1 km away, covering the front of the building. There were minor complications - fucking Ares C-level and a Firewatch escort showing up for the black auction, what the fuck? And our inside woman (whom the physad was attached to) being made as "suspicious" by the head mage.

Then we put an ODST - Orbital Drop Shock Troll - through the second-floor window, just as planned. Turns out 200kg of surprise airborne troll does funny things to a mage! Everything from there proceeded like clockwork.

'Cept for the, uh, Force 12 Guardian Spirit. I mean, we knew about it - we'd be literally retarded not to - but we thought it was bound to the mage that was, at this moment, pinned to a wall by an arrow (to the throat) with the remains of a once-live grenade where his head used to be, not to the manor itself. So that was somewhat harrowing. (Thank fuck for EX-Ex.)

>Not throwing a rock down there with a string, pulling it back up, and then intimidating it to tell you how far down it was.

>> No.40319801

The rest of our inside crew got to pretending to be panicked civilians and stole as much shit as they could while the troll (who was the guy who wanted this hit) made a very loud exit (it's hard to be subtle when your bow fires explosive telephone poles at people), with the sniper providing covering fire. We had to put down the Guardian Spirit twice (it was either that or demolish the manor, possibly brick-by-brick, and we weren't really looking to committing war crimes - hey, like I said, we were here to kill ONE guy, not torch a manor full of random civilians with white phosphorous - tonight) and kill a couple of watchdog hellhounds (but no other people were actually killed!).

Like I said, clockwork.

So after that, we snapped pictures of the take and split.

To cut a long story short (we left the loot with our mage, who then slipped into the astral without telling anyone, or telling anyone why, and then her body started doing Exorcist-y things, which made us ALL think "Shedim", so then we had to call in a favor and hire an exorcist crew and... it was a long and stressful night), our take was some random low-power shit, a singing sword that would probably piss off the exorcist team if they knew we had it ("piss off" as in "hey so, the Vatican City's black ops hit squad has called a Crusade on us"), two Rings of Luck, and The Everlasting Flower.

Did I mention it was a long and stressful night? Pretty sure our sniper/hacker lost like, a couple dozen years off his (admittedly long - fucking elves) lifespan.

Have you ever been to an actual archaeological site? It's more like finding an old painting - or fucking wallpaper - in "some random room". People decorate shit all the time, even meaningless corridors. Even in published modules, going all the way back to the seventies.
Players need to learn how to prioritize shit like that or they are (at least in my games) >going< to fucking die. Quickly.

In the last session I skinned a fellow party member alive...

I'm playing a necromancer/bard, so I've kinda been trying to fill the freaky/annoying niche in our party...

apparently I did one or both of these too well (or simply too much).

One player's main character died a few sessions ago (talked shit to some dragons, rest of the party told him not too). He's been on something like cruise-control ever since.

His new character was something of a non-entity in the party.

The rest of the group was being kinda mean to my bard/necromancer and it hurt his feelings so he started just zapping his wand of sunburst that does 6d6 damage and blinds everyone in 80 foot radius, including allies, including himself.

Why didn't you just tell him what would happen instead of letting him take a flamer?

Party just started but so far the most retarded thing our Party has done is the Paladin's fault. Ok. And a little bit of mine.

Who busted onto the deck of the slave ship we had been captured by, and demanded all, oh, twenty some slaver pirates to fucking surrender.

Goddamn. Fucking. Brilliant.

We had a surprise round too, but this retard rolled top int and shouted, and the DM ruled we lost the surprise round.

And so they start turning the fucking ships cannons at us, so while all this chaos is happening, the party's sacred fist (me), charges and punches down the ship's mast, kicking it so it falls on all the pirates. It crashes into the other mast, brings that one down too, oh, and the sails get set on fire by the torches the pirates had to light their cannon fuses. The ship is now a shitshow (it seemed like a good idea at the time...). but at least cannons aren't being fired at us, and i smashed a few pirates with the mast...

The Paladin did redeem themselves by rolling ridiculously well and cutting the Ogre Pirate captain in two with just two attacks, but now we're stranded at sea.

Because some idiot kicked down the sails.

So uh.

That happened.

Stole the A-Team Van, getting in a high speed chase with undead on fucking motorcycles, and my Poison-Dusk-Lizardman ranger ended up getting an M240B. I genuinely don't know how the fuck that happened.

I don't remember off the top of my head.

He was basically Not!Teddy Roosevelt with levels in Barbarian, which we didn't know until we busted in to kill him.

>Players need to learn how to prioritize shit like that
The thing is, many players have been conditioned to think that everything that is mentioned is immediately relevant and everything that is immediately relevant is mentioned.

I recently ran a short-lived 3e D&D game, which featured at one point a cluster of rooms in a dungeon which contained some items of religious importance. Now, the characters were all from the same place, which was far away from their current location, and completely disconnected from the current location. It had been stated before that there were many things that they would be unfamiliar with. One of these rooms contained a stone altar which had carvings of strange fishman beings on the side and a basin with holy water on top. Instantly every player with knowledge religion rolled their dice and announced their score, without being prompted. I reminded them that they wouldn't have any way of recognizing this based on their own personal knowledge and that they would have to research, to which they replied, "why would you even mention it then?" It's worth noting as well that the party included a character which was described as essentially a bookworm, and the player of this character was one of the ones with that response.

myself, a druid, and my partner, a thief, are trapped in an alleyway being pursued by guards after having accidentally burned down a store with a Molotov cocktail. We were trapped on both ends of the alley and our only escape route was up so I turn into a tree so that the thief can climb up into an above window, he then ties a rope around me as a tree so that he can pull me up as well. however once I turned back into a human the rope was caught around my neck and I was being hung twenty feet in the air. Broke my character's neck
