We’re playing an underdark campaign; party includes barbarian (me), monk, fighter, and cleric, and we’ve been taken to a large city. We’re not welcomed of course and I’m a CN dwarf barbarian. The cleric, a drow tells me not to get into trouble. Naturally I make my way to the closest tavern.
DM: So you enter the tavern and take a seat at the bar. While you’re waiting on your drinks you hear a group of loud Duergar boasting in the corner.
Me: Do they look tough?
Me: DO THEY LOOK TOUGH?!
DM: yeah they’re pretty huge
Me: I go over to the table and challenge their strength!
Me: I’m a barbarian no one’s tougher then me!
DM: alright so you go over to their table and challenge them all to an arm wrestling contest. Roll for strength for all 3.
Me: Aw yeah! Let’s do this, rolled 16, 19, and 20.
DM: You beat them quite easily, they all howl with laughter and say. “Lugo! Get out here we’ve got a tough guy!” The largest Duergar you’ve ever seen steps through the back door, he’s so huge he shouldn’t really be considered a dwarf. “So you think you’re tough?”
Monk: See! this is why you don’t do this! You’re screwed man.
Me: I ain’t scared lets get it!
DM: Roll strength, my man I’m just saying walking a way is always an option
Me: Rolls a nat 20
DM: Whelp, You square up to arm wrestle and destroy the guy. You slam his hand on the table so hard it breaks the table. The room goes silent all the Duergar in the room just look at you.
Monk: You’re so screwed they’re going to kill us all and it’s all your fault!
DM: The Duergar start cheering and start to carry you off chanting “Bring him to the temple of Asmodeus.
After being taken to this temple they make me a champion of Asmodeus and I get covered in tattoos and become the leader of a sect of barbarian Asmodeus followers. The rest of the party meets up and they all stare at me. The cleric is the last to show up and just goes bananas.
Cleric: What did I fucking say! What did you do?!
Me: I’m huge now, and I kinda lead a pack of Asmodeus worshipers.
Cleric: I fucking hate you so much.
Me: I’m huge though.
The rest of the party just busts out in laughter, me and the cleric now butt heads on everything, it’s great this campaign is going to be hilarious.
