So I was having a conversation w/ a friend about interesting DnD moments, he decides to tell me about the one player who fulfilled his role a little differently.
Him: So the guy creates a Half Orc Rogue, okay?
Me: O-Kay… Different but it could work…
Him: The thing is, he puts no points into Stealth.
Him: Instead, he only does intimidation. He cranked the points really high. So whenever he needed to perform a stealth check, he’d just walk up to the people he’s sneaking by and yell “YOU CANT SEE GROG!!!” and because of his intimidation points, the people would just respond in fear, “I can’t see you! I can’t see you”.
Increasingly obscure lycanthropes with correspondingly obscure weaknesses. The wereocelot can only be slain by tungsten alloys. The wereokapi can only be slain by wood from a stage used to perform musical theater. The wereherring can only be slain by a hydraulic press.
A couple weeks ago my spouse and I celebrated Dia de los Dinosaurios with this one-page rules-light RPG that we designed. I was the party T-Rex and I failed at almost everything I did: highlights included smashing my face into a steel garage door and rolling off the roof of an occupied building.
