For context: my party was fighting a bugbear king, who was also Macho Man Randy Savage. My character had gotten a can of Fantasy Monster Energy from a trader earlier in the campaign, and I had a great plan involving it.
Me: Can I drink my Monster and throw the can at [bugbear king]?
DM: Go ahead, but it’ll be a flat d20
*gets the hit*
DM: …No fucking way. He had 2 hp left, you just knocked him out.
Our tiny, fairly weak bard: I want to slide over to him and put him into a pinfall
DM: Make an athletics check.
*bard just makes the dc*
DM: You roll him onto his back, and pin him
The bugbear gives her a heavyweight champion’s belt, actually a belt of hill giant’s strength, and he promised her that he would reclaim the belt one day.
