Purposeful Piercing Damage
Context: A tutorial level before we get started on the actual campaign. The loot after the Final Boss is the random trinkets they’ll carry over into the canon campaign, and one in particular was the single teardrop earring made of a real tear from the Player’s Manual. This was given to our druid by our paladin who insisted it would look better on them.
Half-Elf Druid (OOC): I don’t think Iota actually has pierced ears?
Tiefling Warlock: I can help you pierce it.
Half-Elf Druid: Yeah! If this goes wrong I’ll be screaming bloody murder.
DM: Like that scene in the parent trap?
Half-Elf Druid (OOC): EXACTLY like that.
DM: Okay, I am going to have to make you roll for this. Fuck, what would that even be, medicine?
Tiefling Warlock(OOC): I have high medicine stats I think.
DM: Alright, fuck it, still covered in the goo from the slime monster you’ve just killed, in a dank, moldy tower, you go to pierce Iota’s ear- Medicine check please
Half-Elf Druid (OOC): I heat up the metal to cauterize the wound.
DM: Okay, medicine check with advantage
Tiefling Warlock: 19 - HAVE AT THEE EARLOBE
DM: You have successfully pierced Iota’s ear holy SHIT
