a giant rock

Val D'Ultimo in South Tyrol, Italy

More than 150 years ago this house was built on ground-level. In 1882, a rogue flood caused by a near stream swept away the surroundings, but the cabin has withstood the flood. Surprisingly a giant rock appeared under the cabin, which saved the house and its residents from being swept away.

“Rock made me laugh, I loved him. We spent, oh God, most of the time chatting and laughing and being silly. Just before he died, one of the last things I think that I remember making him laugh was recalling a night in Texas when it was hailing hail so huge, it was like golf-balls. We were running out, getting conked on the head, running around making chocolate martinis. So you can imagine the state we were in.” -Elizabeth Taylor

Its one of our first nights as a group, and we have all gotten aboard the ship safely. Several days later.

DM: suddenly the boat rocks, as giant tentacles shoot up out of the water, starting to snatch up crew members. Its a kraken.

Half elf rogue: I trip it.

DM: You what?

Rogue: I trip the kraken.

Everyone goes silent. The DM Sits there before checking the rules.

DM: You cannot trip it.

Rogue: darn.

Half a minute later it kills the rogue on its first attack.

Our Party, after killing a giant rock worm, decides to drag it all the way back to town. After a whole day of pushing this thing only half way to its destination, our Hunter turns to the Wizard:

H: “What spells have you got prepared? Can’t you levitate this thing back to the town?”

W: “…I’m a Wizard, not a fucking miracle worker!”
