Share stories of betraying the party.

>> No.54370177

I don't have much. Once I sold a guy health potions while he was dying.

Then there was the time I turned the party into team rocket members and got a bunch of children killed.

I think that's it.

DM did not see us backing out of the fight by sacrificing our friend and had to come up with another way for us to get info and better gear.

Rouge was a dick to me in and out of game. Fuck her.

It made sense at the time, since the DM wasn't really giving us any clues as to how we were supposed to go back to "our timeline."

It was my first real campaign and mistakes were definitely made, though.

I've told this story a couple of times before:

>Testing out a homebrew system one of the guys in the group wrote up, I'm the GM.
>Had originally planned to run a 1-2shot, but the little plot ran longer than I thought, and the players got attached to the characters, so I was cobbling a campaign together as we went.
>But characters get rather powerful, and I start dropping hints of a larger, bigger plot, and an eventual BBEG to confront, whose agents they start stumbling across and interfering with their plans.
>As a siding to that, they go beat up a dragon and steal a very powerful staff the giant lizard has in his possession.
>Dragon is bloodied, but manages to escape, and hits one of the characters, a mage with a really nasty wasting curse as a bit of vengeance for being robbed before flying away to become a villain in a later campaign set in the world. (Another round of stories entirely)
>Curse hits the mage Celene.
>She starts dying, slowly, and in great pain.
>Rest of group is looking for a cure, and because I'm a sadistic bastard of a ref, run into some very good leads about the main villain right around that time.
>Go after the villain leads.
>Celene is really dying now, even a cure would probably be too late.
>Her player comes up with a way out which I hadn't considered; namely turning into a liche.
>However, in character she doesn't know the appropriate rituals to do so.
>Contacts the BBEG's men for the lore she needs.
>BBEG is willing to offer her the spells and help with some of the components if she would turn down the wards on the PC's fortified manor on a specific date.
>Dude shows up personally and wipes out 3 of the 5 remaining loyalist memebers, and the campaign ends on that note; the next one would feature the same world but different characters, and the two survivors were retired into NPCs.

Surprisingly, it didn't go down that badly OOC. It was more emotional and tragic among the group mood than "holy shit Erin, you killed us all".

Well, character became another NPC villain, which got killed in a campaign about 4 years after the betrayal. Erin herself would go on to play an archer type in the next campaign whose worst transgression against the party was to run off alone to defend a village when the group had decided they needed to defend a temple that was under attack in the same general area.

>Once I sold a guy health potions while he was dying.
This is my favorite, and the exact reason I enjoy running games in WFRP or others that include detailed body systems damage.

You can always get one of your players with it. Some dumb boatman wanders away from his mates, gets clubbed twice and a knife stuck in his gut, except the assailant isn't interested in killing him, but merely selling him a Cure-All Salve of Wonderous Properties.

Game set in whfb universe (2nd ed) with the game of thrones rpg ruleset.

I came in as a squire to an NPC knight along another's party member.

I began to ingratiate myself by assisting them how and whenever I could. I was very good in a battlefield, but one on one Albrecht was very good.

He ended up convincing a baron he was a undercover witch hunter through a great deal of luck, as well as being in the right place at the right time.

Albrecht fended off a platoon of bat riders singlehandedly after attempting a difficult shadow school spell and being possessed by a demon. Just prior to this he heroically shoved the barons favourite daughter back into the keep with instructions to lock the door behind her.

So I think might be more fair to say the demon fended off a platoon of bat riders. The possession wore off after a few minutes and aside from some brimstone and being on a bat 150 feet above the raging battle down below he was "fine"


He showed his true colours by selling them out, and taking the runefang he had recovered back to his patron, a noble lady seeking to claim the province with a ruenfang reinforcing her claim.

The party actually fought over my characters integrity, one half saying we had done nothing wrong, and the other claiming I was a heretic and worse.

I was actually the enforcer of a thieves guild and making a HUGE power play to go legit as the spy master of this noble lady.

I betrayed a) my old thief guild members, murdering them in cold blood b) the party, leaving them to die and later on orchestrating an ambush that led to a players death, and c) betraying the players who believed I was legit a witch hunter and on the trail of apostates they had encountered.

I worked with the DM and created an NPC the party and associates loved, and when it was too good to pass up I sold them out and made them HATE Albrecht. One of the players still says he was the best villain he ever encountered.

So he was a special snowflake but I had created him alongside the DM to make a special breed of bastard for the party to love, and hate, and feel a surge of triumph when their suspicions were found to be correct.

He had such a strong emotive response to the party.

He was also incredibly fragile, with 2 stamina (or 6 wounds)

He was a powerful shadow mage, who had seduced and converted a trained shadowmage to become his tutor within the thieves guild many fronts.

I think the DM was building up to a chaos taint of some kind in his birth but we never got there.

He was fun to play, shucking outfits and personalities all the time.

He has a powerful rep in the underworld but because we played with such upstanding knights they had no idea who he was, so he'd let the illusion slip now and again when dealing with slippery folks.

Ahh he was fun.

His replacement ended up being stronger than a giant and winning the title of emperor via arena battles.

Was a silly game, but enjoyable.

54372889

Campaign: the School of Mysteries.Set in modern-day London. System was GURPS with each of us having some sort of 20 or 30 point supernatural power.

I played a lanky eurotrash-looking pharmaceutical research worker. My supernatural ability was fairly tame: predict the future with some small degree of accuracy.

But I also had bought a good amount of money in character generation. The other characters were poor, so we used my apartment as our headquarters. The place was, naturally, bugged from head to toe. Hidden cameras were also installed. GeneSys Corp knew everything. Whenever the party came back from a quest with a new "artifact," in the next 24 hours it would either be replaced with a clone or stolen somehow.

I was also working to collect the DNA of the party members. One of them (who believed he was a reincarnated knight from the middle ages) was wounded in combat and hospitalized. He had no idea how to read or write, so I was complicit in signing his medical forms, including consent in having a retrovirus containing magical snake DNA from a beast we fought injected into him.

Sir Bedwyr slowly began to grow scales. His eyes became slits. His voice gradually got raspier and hissing. Throughout this, he trusted me implicitly and shouted down anyone who doubted my loyalty to the party.

Eventually, the DM PC used his "astral vision" to catch me typing a status report to my superiors at GeneSys. Since my time with the group was ending, the DM let my character have a final "redemption mission" where he basically double crossed GeneSys and managed to escape their BioBorg construct and get on a train to safety. This was apparently the happiest ending of any PC that ever played in that campaign. He was brought back as an NPC at some point in the future to give the party a hint before disappearing again.

Dude decided to set fire to a holy tree
so we retaliated and attacked his city stronghold.
In venegence he left open his portal to the southern continent the other end of which is connected to a kingdom down there which he overthrew in the name of the armies of darkness.
now said armies are threatening to spill out into our homeland and let our kingdom get conquered and possibly jeopardize our religion and allies in doing so.

got mind controlled by the big bad and shot another PC in the back of head execution style.
they survived because it was ruled to resolve like an normal attack instead of an execution (He put a Makarov up to the back of the unsuspecting character's head and pulled the trigger.)

They've been plotting all week on how to get back at each other. I'm honestly delighted that our pirate themed campaign has been nothing but fighting, bloodshed, wenches, drinking and looting. Not sure how I want to handle things if the rogue decides to kill the fighter though (which is incredibly likely).

The DM likes DCC modules, and doesn't even slightly enjoy the DCC system. To be fair, the modules are -fucking excellent- if you like "hippie van art" fantasy with robots riding unicorns and fighting demons and shit. He uses ACKS(Adventurer conqueror king system) because he hates, hates and hates some more the constant rolling on tables. From what he told me, he ran DCC for two years(2012-2013) when it came out and ran into "rolling on tables" fatigue. Having to flip through a book to roll on tables for every single crit, fumble and spell casting can get -very- tiresome, apparently.

I don't like party betrayal much unless it really makes sense. Like if the other players can walk away not being pissed its a good one.

This is not one of those. It was shadowrun and the Face and Combat monster troll didn't get along. Mostly it was one sided as the face was dismissive of the trolls intelligence and insulted him constantly, ignored his plans, and generally tried to pick fights. The troll, however, was very mission focused and pay focused so he didn't actually let the face piss him off enough to attack. Then it happened. The mission was over and the face followed the troll to his home, planted a bomb in his motorcycle, and when the troll got on it next he detonated it. The troll survived and the face was there to gloat at him before walking over to the battered troll and putting a bullet into his head....which the troll also survived. What followed was the troll beating the face to absolute death slowly over a few rounds as the face kept trying to pump bullets into him, ending with the troll just holding him in a fire while strangling him to death.

Moral of the story don't try and betray the guy who can soak LMG rounds to the chest.

I have one, but it's not so much the 'party' as one player.

See, we were playing a Marvel game set in Japan. Because I wanted to take a backseat for once, I agreed with the DM to play an unusual character. One of the PCs was the latest iteration of the Silver Samurai, and I was playing his ancestral sword. Or rather, the spirit of the ancestral sword, who could manifest and appear as a Japanese maiden when she willed it. Effectively, she bonded with the wielder to grant him certain advantages, but could also independently manifest to cast spells and defend herself.

The thing is, a few sessions in, problems started to arise. The main thing was that I could not stand the player I was supposed to be working with. But for the good of the campaign, I didn't say anything.

Then things got interesting. We started fighting the Hand (there's a revenge plot somewhere that's too complicated to go into) the ninjas who get beaten up by every superhero ever, and who disintegrate when they die. The leader of the Hand, however, was an older man who always hung back from the fights and basically watched his loyal death-ninjas be slaughtered. He actually seemed to be pretty amused by the whole thing. Wondering exactly what's up with that, my PC manifested away from the fight to confront him directly.

The ninja master tells her that actually, he's been watching *her*. And then he starts to flirt with her. At this point, I'm thinking that, well, a sword-spirit who isn't happy with her master certainly won't mind reciprocating a little. Anyway, the campaign rolls on, and eventually it becomes a torrid affair. Like, my heroine is literally sneaking away mid-battle to make out with him, and it reaches a point when she's briefly teleported to the Hand's stronghold for an all-out, all-night long fucking.

At this point, the ninja master makes his pitch. Basically, if she lets him wield her instead, they'd be unstoppable! Not to mention all the personal pleasures and advantages she'd enjoy as his wife. Since she's more-or-less completely corrupted by this point, she says "Yes".

So when the supposed final battle with the Hand rolls around, and the enemy phanlax of evil ninjas and demon-spirits confronts the hero, the villain is very, very surprised when the ninja master mounts a brief coup. One wing of the enemy turns on the other, and my heroine promptly rushes to his side, complete with a new, evil costume. The other PCs are rather confused by this change of events, but the PC she's supposed to be working with is absolutely blindsided. Like, I'm pretty sure the player had no idea what was going on, until my sword-maiden transformed back and shared a long, passionate kiss with her lover.

After that, with his new girl in tow, the ninja master basically went "I'm in charge now. I could kill you all, but why bother? You've delivered me everything I wanted."

I got NPC'ed after that (by agreement with the DM) but the Silver Samurai had a crisis of faith - he went on a quest to find a new power source, which doubled as character development for him. I mean, I know this wasn't really justifiable on my part, but it was honestly extremely fun. I do feel a little bad about it, even though I made sure not to fuck over the party specifically.

>ruled that drinking acid inflicts way more damage than having it thrown on you.
Don't get me wrong, drinking acid will seriously fuck you up.
But as soon as it is in your stomach the internal damage is a bit mitigated, because your stomach is designed to hold acid.
Now before you start hating on me, this is DnD where barbarians can "tank" swords and arrows, so a bit of acid should not do so much.
I am not an expert in any way on acid burns, but the larger the surface area covered in acid, the more damage it will do.
So "only" having your esophagus and mouth burned seems less or equal to being soaked by it to me.

>> No.54404130

>>54404058
>because your stomach is designed to hold acid.
It's designed to withstand a 0.5-1.0% solution of HCl - by constantly secreting mucus to keep that weak solution away from the cells. For reference, what we call "concentrated" HCl is somewhere around 37%.

Acid concentrated and/or strong enough to quickly burn skin would rapidly eat through that. Don't overestimate the body.

>> No.54404132

>>54404058
It would still do full damage or at least 90% damage, since you did not actively try to evade it and you are not trying to get it off your skin and face before it melts it all off.

The acid not only will hurt your stomach, but your mouth and throat, too.

Quite the understatement. Swallowing concentrated acid results in necrosis and internal bleeding. Death is usually the consequence. Your insides almost literally get digested and cooked (from the heat released by the chemical reactions).

I'd imagine these bubbling green fantasy acids are nastier still than industrial grade HCl or H2SO4, given that they eat through almost anything in seconds.

I'm not saying that my scrawny ass can hold acid, but we are talking about a DnD barbarian here.

After the first gulp, even a barbarian will notice something is wrong and stop drinking.

So is getting hit by a couple of arrows while not wearing armour, but that doesn't seem to bother most barbarians.

This conversion reminds me of a something completely off topic, but surprise story time.
>I'm playing a barb that is defending a keep from a horde of undead, but we are safe because we high walls and a strong gate.
>Some kind of ninja undead climbs over the walls and dashes to the gate to unlock it for the horde outside, with me on hot pursuit.

>Keep running at full speed and just "tank" the caltrops, because if he opens the gate we are all fucked.

>My party got the undead ninja, but i'm still salty about that fucking caltrop.
>The mage can do all kind of reality bending shit, but a barb stepping on caltrop stops him in his tracks.

To get back to the our topic. Getting hit by acid does as much damage as getting hit by a Greatsword, so clearly DnD acid is strong as fuck.
But most barbarians can shrug off a couple of greatsword hits without even wearing armour, so fuck logic.
Wizards can bend reality, barbs are Hercules and can take most kind of damage.

I remember someone saying that one's HP is just a way of representing the ability to avoid lethal damage. AC is a way of dodging damage all together, but if it does manage to hit a high HP character, you might visualise it as them just stopping the blade with their arms. Yeah they are hurting and hit, but it didn't hit any lethal spots.

At least that's how I usually see it. So 'tanking' greatsword hits in my eyes doesn't mean he's literally standing there getting whacked, but he's using his body to catch the blows in places that don't hurt as much.

Opposing to this, actually ingesting an acid is going to truly fuck you up. It's the same as if the Barbarian would let someone wilfully plunge a low-damage dagger right into his heart. He would still die, even though he has a lot of hitpoints, because he's not trying to actively avoid lethal damage.

But yeah again, that's just my interpretation and in no way RAW. Seems logical to me.

I agree. It also avoids weird situations where it becomes truly impossible to assassinate a sleeping character, just because they leveled up enough. PF tried to avoid this with coup de grace autocrits and death saves, but this was still a rather poor jury-rig. It's the old debate of HP as literal "meat points" or as luck, fatigue, fate etc.

Well, there's one particularly nasty time where I played a necromancer who was a little too close to going off the deep end AT CHARGEN.

My character was nice and affable so no one really realized his methods were cruel (if effective) and he was pretty good at diplomacy. I don't know what the GM was thinking but after taking down the leaders of an orphanage putting the children to use for "street urchin" duties (pickpocketing on the streets, stealing expensive food/drink from vendors, etc), the party just said "well SOMEONE has to take care of the orphans now!".

Anyway my character being a kooky spooky + a place full of young test subjects (apprentices if they could handle casting) + the party being fond of this new hub town = army of pint-sized deathsingers.

It came to a head when we stormed the palace in search of a cursed amulet the King had (basically made you a super-wraith with psionic and mind control powers, but drove you insane). I tipped my hand like "here's what I've been doing" and besides the party's SHOCK of children exploding mind-controlled guards they didn't think much of it.

Until we got to the amulet. Everyone wanted to destroy it. There were about 15 tots with high-level spells and a cultist-like devotion to my necromancer.
>inb4 "just cut through them!"
Since the party was mostly Lawful they didn't want to try and fight through the children, so my character made away with the amulet.

Overall, it was real fun.
