Much like Twilight, I initially thought this sequence would go much differently, with Twilight using her spells to make a laughingstock of this otherwise climactic sequence. So let this be a public service announcement: Regularly review your character sheets.

In other news, the fourth session of Fallout is Dragons up. It has a parody of So Many Wonders, a city of gold, and a boss fight against a giant dragon in it, so there's that.

My party frequently believed they could do anything with enough rope and strength. That was until a single spike pit all but TPK'd them. I use 1d50's in my system, and they ALL rolled 1's. Yup...

I nearly TPK'd my party with a knock-knock joke.

The joke couldn't have been that bad.

Technically, no joke was made. :3

It was a trap door that had a giant door knocker and a sign that said to knock twice. You do so and the door's magic mouth responds with "Who's There?"

It was an obvious set up for the PCs to make a lame knock-knock joke, and indeed making such a joke would unlock the door. Failure to make the joke allowed the door's two "eyes" to strike you with ray spells.

Not one PC dared to make a knock-knock joke! D:

It didn't even have to be a good one. As long as there was an attempt at humor, the door would open. But no, they instead used brute force against the door, getting blasted with spells the entire time (eventually they disable both eyes, but by then all the PCs were down to single digit HP and the cleric was out of healing spells). They began damaging the door to force it open, but stopped because they didn't want to damage their weapons attacking a masterwork iron door (no one in the party had blunt weapons at the time and they were all 12th level).

They gave up and went another path. :(
And this is the same group that habitually makes jokes on anything. When I revealed how the door could easily be opened, they kicked themselves. Hard.

*knock knock* (door, in a sow, rolling voice) "Who's there" (me, casually) "Bob" "Bob who?" "Bob Barry Ian" *killed*
