Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays! It's a day early, but what do you want? I don't update on Christmas day this year. By the time this comes out, I'll be on a train down to Portland anyway.

Special effort made or not, I hope you all enjoy your holiday season!

Merry Christmas! Today, tell a story about a Christmas campaign, or a a game you played with some Christmas elements added.

I would tell an amusing story about Raxon, but he holes up and doesn't go out during December. At least, not out in public. He has a very good reason for it. He's afraid of Santa Claus.

Because Santa has an army of elves. Bear in mind that Santa is real in this setting... Here we have one of the most powerful beings on the planet, who screams and runs when he comes face to face with a salvation army bell ringer.

In a "Teen Titans" supers campaign, the players ended up in a WWF arena fighting the bad guys, but they got an assist from "Raging Santa"-- A Christmas theme wrestler. XD

They actually liked that one, it was funny.

Santa is time traveled from an alternate Future Raxon. He doesn't get along with this timelines copy because he's still making the potentially universe destroying mistakes that Santa himself remembers making.

I run a Christmas D&D camp each year for Guardian Games for 12-15 year olds. Last year the players ended up rescuing Santa's workshop and toys from Tiamat's treasure hoard. They also found a Rod of Magnificent Wonder in her hoard (which is a Rod of Wonder of epic proportions, utterly irresistible in its effects).

The kids grabbed it and a lot of extra treasure, which ended up waking up Tiamat. She chased them through the astral sea and was about to devour them, when a player fired the Rod of Magnificent Wonder at her. They rolled a 54 and I read the effect...

"The target changes to a random alignment."

They rolled a 4, and the evil dragon goddess of greed, envy and chromatic dragons changed to Lawful Good.

An hour later the kids were flying on the back of a happy and helpful Tiamat over the campaign setting and giving out presents to all the world.
Digo 24th Dec 2013, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
My players did that once, but the artifact they used destroyed half the world and killed Bahamut in the process. But hey, a good-aligned Tiamat knew how to bake cookies for the party.

Hey, I should write a parody of the Grinch about that. The first Christmas camp *did* have the Grinch as the enemy, and he could only speak in rhyme. He also could only hear rhyme. His dialogue was so much fun to act out. Ended up narrating the entire session in seus-like-verse.

Absolutely. My home's in Portland, but my college is in Corvallis. I run D&D camps for Guardian games each Summer and Winter. They're a lot of fun. My table's got 8 kids this time (16 signed up, so we ended up bringing in an extra DM and dividing them into two groups). It's a nice break, usually I run for a table of 10.

I am still running my first compaign, but in it there is an ancient deity known only as 'The Bard.' Now, The Bard is giving everyone Christmas-esque gifts (pretty good ones, too) in the time between games. However, the items are all cursed in some way or another. For instance, a pirate cutlass that has a 'summon wraith for 1 turn' type ability, but when it sees select characters it will try to possess the user.

I am going to see how it pans out.

Santa Claus knows literally everything you've ever done, he constantly watches every single sentient being on the planet. He is omniscient, capable of stopping time (in order to deliver presents to 6 billion people in 24 hours you'd have to be), has control over magical animals, has an army of elves at his command, and access to the single greatest factory known to mankind. He's also immortal (at least from aging), and stealthy enough to land a sleigh full of loot on your roof, break into your house, mess with your stuff, intentionally leave something so you know he's been there, and escape, without you waking up, noticing him, or being able to trace him at all.

The only reason not to be scared of Santa is that he obviously wishes you no ill will, because if he did, then there's no reason for you to still be alive.

In our Mutants and Masterminds campaign, a villainous wizard literally turned the world into a stop motion Christmas special, because the heroes wouldn't be allowed to use physical violence then, and couldn't stop him.

I haven't used him yet, but I made a Half-Giant Lich Favored Soul villain with a sleigh pulled by fiendish reindeer with Fly as a special ability, and barding covered with silver bells of Animate Greater Undead. He has THE Bag of Holding, Boots of Elvenkind, an Amulet of Awareness...
All because I remembered that Animate Greater Undead can make incorporeal undead as the line "bells on bobtails ring/ making spirits rise" and it sparked my evil. One day, he shall be unleashed, and his broken spell list shall dominate as he thwacks PCs in the face with the ultimate bag of Holding.

Merry Christmas one and all!

Story time, have you ever frustrated the DM with an ability combo that was so broken that they just gave up on the encounter?
Raxon 24th Dec 2013, 6:22 AM edit delete reply
Raxon
Yes.

At will teleport. Portal spell. Summon pillow.

Soooo broken.

And before you ask, summon pillow is a cantrip, and deals no damage. Seemingly harmless.

However, when you suddenly have something in your face, you are pretty much automatically caught off guard. Turns out it's capable of allowing me to repeatedly cast it, flank them, attack, for lots of extra damage.

Portal, well... let's just say that arrows go in, and I can send them back with the other portal. Very broken, but only effective against ranged weapons.

The teleport spell? How about repeatedly teleporting your enemy fifty feet into the air and jumping back five feet? Yup. All kinds of broken.

In our Pony Tales game "Shadow Walkers", we had been taken into the lair of a hobo boss with a Darwinian outlook who was attacking the city. Our diplomancer was pretending to be a luchador, and challenged the boss to a one on one duel.

As stupid as this sounds, the diplomancer had a broken strategy. I don't remember all the specifics, but they went something as follows:
1. The diplomancer would summon a guardian to block all attacks to the diplomancer. Nothing can attack something that a guardian has blocked.
2. On his next turn, he would summon...another guardian to block the attacks to the first one.

This meant that as long as the guardians lasted at least one turn, the diplomancer was free to whittle the boss down without repercussion.

...The DM basically said he won the fight, that we were now seen as "recruit material", and that he never wanted to see that combo again.

No. My players never use anything broken because they know I will turn it right back at them with a future encounter. :)

In an older game, my Hexblade Irriel had a combo going with one of the hunters. It wasn't quite one of these, but it annoyed the DM quite a bit because we pretty much tag teamed a boss he'd intended to take hours, and took it down with a one two hit.

We both rolled well on initiative, Ranger first. Ranger marked the boss enemy, rolled crit, and used an ability (I forget which) that allowed him to do lots of damage. Burned an action point, hit again. Bloodied. The boss went into some super transformation and became a super sized mega dwarf.

My hexblade does a spin and a twirl and another attack, cuts him down to size between a nice ability that was enhanced because he was bloodied, followed by an action point burn and a beheading. Well, be-ankling, technically.

The DM was pissed, and the rest of the party laughed while they wrapped up the minions. What was supposed to be a two hour long encounter didn't last a single round.

(He made up for it by having the next room a killbox though. >.> Dwarves had set up a bunch of rapid fire ballista and boxes to keep us from hitting up. If not for fire spells we might've been murdered. >.>)

I wasn't the one playing,but I am telling a story for another.The DM was stupid(There was load-bearing doors just to rail road them)In any event,all of them were hugely powered up,but the person who told us this story played a Half-Giant Factotum who,at second level,could deal 800 Damage once per day.They killed a dragon without trying.

Wait, in 4e constructs aren't immune to Fortitude-check abilities? I would think it would at least be immune to poison damage.
Kynrasian 24th Dec 2013, 9:16 AM edit delete reply
Kynrasian
It might be immune to poison for all we know, but the damage here was never specified as poison. "Ongoing 5" simply means that every turn you take 5 damage, but it can be of any type: fire, cold, lightning, etc including poison or even untyped (facsimile of a potentially fatal wound).

And Fortitude in 4e is a flat 10 + Strength or Constitution modifier (whichever's higher) that represents the ability to ignore pain or impact.

Also, it may be that timberwolves have more in common with treants than contructs.
Hemka 24th Dec 2013, 12:15 PM edit delete reply
On Angel's extended stat block it says the ongoing is poison type, so I would argue it would be immune to that ongoing damage. Wish I had books for 4e, I mostly play Pathfinder. Treants are immune to sleep and poison in PF too :) Don't give up so easily PM!
Kynrasian 24th Dec 2013, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
Kynrasian
Treants aren't immune to poison in 4e, so it's still possible it was ruled as a treant or a nature spirit.

Chances are that since it's being called "Timber Wolf" in the comic that it's not necessarily based on any of the things we've been comparing it to. Evidently, whatever it is, it wasn't immune to any of the effects that were applied to it.

Not that that couldn't have changed as necessary, but that's not a trick you pull unless you can do it without skipping a beat.

Well I don't have a holiday story (Xmas wise at least) but I do have a Thanksgiving story (I figure they're both holidays so it's a small loophole) I remember when I first played D&D on my Basic Game about 9 years ago (suddenly I feel old) I remember the adventurers got the BBEG (A Black Dragon)after an intense battle the dragon was pretty much defeated and one more blow would've beaten him but it was his turn and none of his attacks seemed it would really threaten the players (I wanted to spice things up however)so I made it so the dragon was a sore loser and going to self-destruct. Everyone had to make a reflex roll or be caught in the blast everyone failed and the dragon took half the party (2 player) down with him. However I had made it since the cleric was still there he could talk to them as ghost NPC's if we ever needed help. Good Times, it's amazing to think how far I've come DMing from Games with "exploding Dragons and very limited plot other than fight after fight" to now still it's been a fun ride.

Also Merry Christmas to all

I actually posted this one to /tg/ the other night, but I figured I'd repost it here. Too lazy to take it out of greentext, though, so keep that in mind. Strap in, folks, this is a bit of a long one.

"Last night, our GM decided it would be fun to do a stupid little holiday special module in order to take a break from the main plot.

This led to a wonderful module where nothing went wrong and everyone had a holly jolly time.

...well, WE did at least. GM ended up dealing with Murphy's Law all night.

Friends, brothers, /tg/men and women alike: This is the story of how the Brotherhood of Momotaurus saved Bromas.

For future reference-this was in Pathfinder.

>The Brotherhood joined when it was brought together by a mysterious benefactor to capture something called “The Scion of Prometheus”
>Now, they are taking the scion-named Derek-along with them on their journey
>The party consists of:
>Gene Ericson, knight of the lands of Brodea
>He befriended fire
>Abunai, bearded halfling rogue
>He likes to piss on things and dance
>Maig Sitruss, samurai and chef from the lands ruled by Urob Utcher, played by myself
>He wins most of his fights by dropkicking
>Tabris, shadow wizard
>Probably the only sane one of the party
>Link, hero of time
>He tried being grimdark. It didn't work
>El Dorito, masked wrestler from another world
>He grapples dinosaurs
>Clarence, the bookkeep
>Snarky intern with patience like a rock

>They are employed by Percival, a very touchy wizard that communicates via a green rock
>He doesn't like the Brotherhood. At all
>Derek, a strange boy with the power to summon a god, joins them on the adventure
>He mainly burns things and wins fights with his stand/persona/god
>They are stalked by a bomber named Yoshikage, played by GM's friend
>He puts bombs in everything
>EVERYTHING
>The party is paranoid like hell
>The GM is a fairly understanding guy with a tendency to accept any and all nat 20s as the best possible outcome and never goes back on his word when it comes to the game
>He doesn't like to railroad. It will be his downfall

>A decision is made to create a holiday special for the party before the next module
>”The Night Before Bromas”
>The module is planned by the GM and I, but the bomber decides to have his say before the module begins
>Link's player is unable to attend but has the GM promise that Link will not be harmed during the module
>This can only end well

>The party crashlands in a Brodean colony known as Broville
>They are separated during the crash
>Group 1 fights off a pair of evil snowmen before entering Broville
>A quick history on Brodeans
>Brodeans are a very friendly peoples
>They seek to make whoever they meet their bros
>They place a heavy emphasis on fighting and friendship in their culture
>Bromas has a creature known as Manra Claws-
>-who is a flying, talking, magical pro wrestling bear-
>-bringing a stuffed teddy bear to good boys and girls every year
>The good boys and girls then fight the teddy bear in order to befriend it
>There is much feasting and merriment
>The bad kids get nothing but salad

>The party reunites with its missing members, but a note is attached to one of them
>Everyone remembers the last time the party got a mysterious note
>It was a bomb that blew up in Gene's face
>Party immediately defuses the bomb
>Party then checks to see if the town is a bomb
>GM is dumbfounded

>Gene challenges his bretheren to a drinking competition
>Wins
>Gains a beer stein that allows him to make anyone who loses to him in a drinking competition agree to whatever terms he makes no matter what
>Party gains a plus two bonus towards fortitude by eating a Brodean feast of Chicken Wings and Nachos
>This can only end well

>We go further into the town
>Kids are throwing snowballs, isn't that ni
>The snowballs have acid in them
>A “gift” from the bomber
>Party manages to avoid the snowballs and get the kids to run off
>Highlights include Maig tossing an orange at a snowball and Tabris attempting and failing to distract the kids with rock and roll

>Party approaches a giant Christmas-er, Bromas tree
>Snowman shows up
>Percy fires an energy blast from the rock at the snowman
>Turns out the snowman was the only thing keeping the macguffin of the module safe from Mr. Freeze and those vegans from Scott Pilgrim
>I could not make this up if I tried

>The party is tasked with stopping Mr. Freeze
>We begin to travel up into the tree
>Random ornaments fall on us, including Team Rocket
>Not. If. I. Tried.
>We come across one of the mascots of Bromas
>A giant grizzly bear that talks
>We have to defeat it to get past
>Gene chooses to challenge it, making it promise to help us if it loses
>Has a plus two boost to the roll thanks to the feast
>Wins by 1
>Bear joins the party
>GM is dumbfounded

>Party continues further up
>See Santa Claus and the Ice Wizard from Santa Claus is Coming to Town fall off the tree
>Pause for a moment
>Continue up
>Come to a floor with two bells attached
>Maig pushes one
>Gets shocked

>Suddenly remembers Link, while not being played, is still in the module
>Picks him up, pushes the bell with him
>A giant blade drops down and bounces off of Link because the GM promised no harm to him
>GM never goes back on his word
>Party proceeds to use Link as a human shield to finish the puzzle
>GM is dumbfounded

>Party continues up the tree
>Reaches the location of Mr. Freeze and his Vegans
>Turns out the macguffin is an order of wings from Buffalo Wild Wings
>That give superpowers
>Maig rushes in to stop Mr. Freeze
>Rest of the party works to distract Vegans

>Maig tries to distract Mr. Freeze while he wait on his order while Abunai tries to steal the wings using his cape of disappearing and reappearing
>This fails miserably and Mr. Freeze eats the wings
>He and Vegans ascend to the top of the tree to get a second macguffin
>Party-say it with me now-continues up the tree
>Video game consoles drop on us
>Party collects them with the intent of using them to forge a “Next Gen Blade” in the future

>They reach the top of the tree
>Villains explain their motivations
>”We hate Bromas and Manra Claws because we never got anything good”
>Gene: “Wait. Vegans. You get your powers from stuff like salad. Wouldn't your whole powers be owed to Manr-”
>Gene is knocked back
>Final battle start


>Party fights vegans
>Clarence creates a vision of the Vegan Police and kills one of them instantly
>Bear tosses the second one's salad

Generally, a GM who gives you overpowered NPC allies is either inexperienced or setting you up for something utterly Machiavellian.
