My group of players are amazing, but most of them haven’t played before.
I’m running this weird homebrew/Dragonlance mixture of a world, and I sent them down into Xak Tsaroth because the organization they worked for wanted to see what was left.
So, they get there, things are going fine. They find the ruins of where an old dragon’s lair was, which is mostly caved in. They’re outside of the room, down a hallway.
“We’re going to send the bards down, they’re going to sneak!”
The two bards (and one rogue, I think) like Parks and Rec. They began to sing ‘Don’t be suspicious’. As they go down the hallway, I make them roll progressive sneak checks.
At the same time, they all roll fails. At least one 1, and nothing above 5. When it had all started, I’d asked how they were walking down the tunnel. They were in a row.
Player 1: Shit!
Player 2: Well, fuck!
Player 3: TITS
The first one falls, and the other two trip over each other. A loud crashing of armour and weapons, making the rest of the group cringe and the enemies start coming.
I’m still laughing over this. We discussed getting tshirts made.
