My first experience with a full-sized dragon and its hoard did not turn out well.

See, there was this cursed sword we desperately needed. It was in the middle of a dracolich's hoard. Said dracolich was many levels higher than us.

Our attempts to sneak the item out while it was sleeping resulted in its awakening. I handed off the item to my party members, who took off running at maximum speed... leaving me, without any actions left, standing alone in the dracolich's hoard.

The only way I managed to survive was by immediately grabbing hold of the most valuable gem in the hoard and using it as a shield, creating an incredibly tense, 45-minute-long Mexican standoff. I barely got out with my life, and many valuables lighter.

Never before had I been so committed to acting perfectly in-character, and very rarely since.

First encouter with a dragon.

Teammate cheated by accident(We were very very new to DnD) and claimed he got an immediate reation for eatch taregt the dragon hit... with it's burst attack. So it hit everyone.

Cue him doing stupid amounts of damage to the thing and pretty much killing it alone. We know it was wrong now, but we still like to joke about it... that and our invisible rouge getting killed by an axe wielding skeleton by pulling the belt off our swordmage.
