Quick background: One of our players (Jason) had just changed characters from a massive and strong sailor minotaur (named Tosdar) to a gnome rogue. Our DM helped facilitate the change by allowing Tosdar to purchase a ship and leave the party. After a mission with the new set up, our group gets back into town and decides to pursue a new goal in which we need a ship.
Others in this discussion include a player with a gnome druid named Rella (Mike) and a player with tiefling bard (with very high persuasion and intimidation) named Eleeo.
Rella: Hey! Let’s see if Tosdar is still at the docks and get him to give us a lift!
(Insert rolls here to determine if he was still at the dock and if he even wanted to go.)
Tosdar OOC: He is still at the docks but he isn’t ready to leave. He still needs a crew and supplies and that’ll take like five days before he’s ready.
Eleeo: (rolls a 31 to persuade him) Are you suuuuure it’s going to take that long?
Tosdar: …..ok, maybe two days….
Eleeo OOC: (rolls 33 for potential intimidate) What if I try to intimidate you and use thamaturgy to make my eyes glow red and make my voice boom?
Tosdar OOC: Then he would jump on his boat and sail away NOW just to try to get away from you.
Rella OOC: OH OH! You know when people jump on like the tip of the boat and kick it up in the air and turn it around?! That’s what Tosdar would do with the massive ship and just sail out.
Tosdar OOC: This isn’t Moana, Mike.
Eleeo OOC: No, Jason… (whispers) This is Mooooooo-ana.

Taako/Kravitz!!!: “This wasn’t supposed to happen.”
“Wait-wait he said
WHAT to you?” The raven queen’s ghostly, blackened figure spoke. She was
nothing but a summoned shadow, billowy and ominously standing in front of her
favorite (her only) reaper after his return from the crystal kingdom.
“…he said…and I quote, ‘let me get that name, tho, so I
know how to credit you in the tentacle porn I’m about to make with your body’“
Kravtiz flushed, his skin felt almost…hot and alive under his cheeks which
was impossible since he had no body heat or heart beat but boy was this a close
feeling. He looked down as the ghostly figure with wide white, bird eyes
“HAHAHA I dear GOD” the Queen of the dead almost doubled
over in laughter. “And that’s the one you’re off to make a house visit?
“I have to! They died 8 more times and their souls never
made it here. It is my duty to protect and enforce the natural laws of life and
death” Kravtiz argued like the good reaper he was but the laughs were
overlapping his excuses.
The Raven queen shook her head and with a spectral, gaseous
tendril wiped under her gaping white eye. “Oh suuuuure Kravtiz, this is only to
really crack down on them like you did while you were a crystal creature, no
you really showed them heh-heh, what for when you let them go and allowed a
spirit to remain in the material realm.” She snickered. “This clearly has
nothing to do with the fact a very attractive wizard completely caught you off
guard and perhaps exposed a rather awful fetish.”
Kravtiz pinched the bridge of his nose, “This wasn’t
supposed to happen” he started to undo his summoning rune, making the
communication between him and his goddess staticy and fuzzy. “Goodbye my
goddess I have to get ready to get to the bottom of this.”
“Oh I hope you do get to the bottom of your date and don’t
do anything I wouldn’t do~!” The Raven Queen continued to laugh as she saw
right through her reaper. Kravtiz was a man of profession but now that he had
been thrown off his high horse he was being led right down the ever so tempted
path of love.
