So I DM a game and one of the players is a cat bard who loves to derail every encounter by just convincing the opponents they dont want to fight.
Troll: You little brat! I’ll kill you for that!
Her: I really wish you wouldn’t
Troll: Ok. Well then Ill kill your friends instead! *turns invisible and starts attacking other party members*
Troll: I’ll kill you and take your heads to my king Skalmad! The ruthless Skalmad will rule this land or destroy everthing in his path! Skalmad is the most powerful and awesome leader in all the lands and he will soon be the leader of all!
Her: You seem to have kind of a complex relationship with Skalmad
Troll: He is the great ruler and after I bring him your heads I will be recognized as a loyal fighter!
Her: Oh wait have you ever even met Skalmad? Does he know you exist?
Troll: Well no… I haven’t met him yet but he is very busy destroying everything. And after I kill you he will notice me.
Her: Oh no this doesn’t sound like a very healthy relationship. Your value is not dependent on Skalmads love. I think you really should take a break from this whole Skalmad thing to think about it all. Do you have someone you can talk to about this? How’s your relationship with your father?
Troll: Stops attacking because hes crying too hard
