Here’s a fun april fools day prank you can do. Sneak into my room and place thousands of dollars everywhere. Just on everything. Cover my things with an insane amount of money. Make it a real hassle to clean up. The more money the better the prank.
Context: my party of a Rogue, Druid, and Bard had just taken taken down a white dragon in a mining town and were in the process of looting it when I decided that they shouldn’t be able to carry around a whole dragon skin so I sent in someone to stop them.
Me: from inside the mine runs out a huge, burly half-orc covered in soot. He looks at you three, and says “we’ll take it from here.”
Rogue, standing on the carcass: This is our kill. We will do with it as we please.
*Rogue fails a persuasion roll*
Half-Orc: You killed it on my land, it is my dragon. You can keep what you’ve taken so far, but the rest belongs to the mine.
Gold-hungry Rogue: You can have it, for 50,000 gold.
*fails persuasion* *Druid fails to charm the Half-Orc*
Half-Orc: This is MY dragon.
Cocky Rogue: I’ll fight you for it.
*The party is all level 3 at this point, so I make the Half-Orc a Champion*
Half-Orc: *laughs* [Miner]! Bring me my greatsword!
They fight, and the Rogue is of course KO’d instantly. The Bard heals him and as he stands up with blood running down his face.
Sonofabitch Rogue: That was a great fight. We’ll give it to you for 15,000.
I stare at him in disbelief.
Me: Roll persuasion with disadvantage ‘cause he just kicked your ass.
The Rogue rolls a 19 and a 20. And this war hero who has killed a Pit Fiend and a Adult Blue Dragon gives the scrawny, greedy, arrogant Half-Elf 15,000 gold worth in silver bars from his own mine.
I knocked everyone’s drink over from how hard I slammed my head on the table.
