We’re pushing for two more stretch goals in the last hours of the campaign
Manufacturing a run of custom D20s to match the D6s
Adding a rainbow colour combo to the manufactured run of Dragon Bagons
Pledges have picked up speed in the last two days, so we have a fighting chance.
So, I’m in a campaign where everyone starts as level 0 commoners and we all flail around trying not to die horribly for as long as possible. Somehow, amidst all this carnage, an unexpected hero joined us.
DM: you are ambushed by three angry Gnolls. What do you do?
Dwarf herder (me): *looks through inventory* wait…I have a sow?
DM: Yep. You’re a herder.
Herder: Imma try and get her to attack the Gnolls.
*rolls a d20 and gets an 18*
DM: ok, she attacks. Roll a d4 for damage.
Herder: *rolls 4*
DM:….your pig kills the Gnoll.
Herder: I’m naming this sow Suzan the Battle Pig. Good job, Suzan!
Herder: *dies by another angry Gnoll*
Me: wait, can Suzan still fight?
DM: roll persuasion to see if your other character can convince her to help.
Me: *rolls nat20*
DM: Suzan is filled with rage and discovers an insatiable hunger for Gnoll flesh. She now attacks with a d6.
Suzan: *kills the remaining Gnoll boss and Gnoll magician*
Me: Suzan is gonna eat the Gnolls
DM:…ok, she eats the big one and gains 5XP and one point of luck. She’s too full to eat the other one.
Me: Suzan carries the magic Gnoll with her.
~~~~one short rest later~~~~
Me: can Suzan eat her Gnoll now?
DM:….oh right, you did say you carried that. Sure.
As Suzan eats the magic Gnoll, she feels a rush of magical energy in her mind. Her brain is rebuilt by this magic so that she has….
*rolls d20 and gets a 15*
Oh, for fu–Suzan has 15 intelligence now and the ability to cast spells. Congratulations.
A completely normal D&D campaign, but you add just one extra item to the game. It’s a gun. Not a fantasy appropriate magic gun, not a primitive 14th century gun. Just a real, anachronistic, 2017 magnum in this high fantasy setting.
Additionally, the gun has one bullet, and will kill most creatures instantly, no rolling required. Do not inform the players about any of it’s mechanics. When asked about how OP the weapon is, reply with “dude you just shot him with a gun, what did you expect.” and move on.
