Maybe you other gamers out there can help me out with a peculiar problem I'm having:

This weekend, I'm getting together with an old playgroup for a standalone followup to the campaign we finished a while back. Two of my party members - a Paladin and a Warlord - have somehow managed to anger every god we've ever encountered in the intervening time. I'm not yet sure what the fallout of that is going to be.

I'm playing an illusionist Wizard in this group. What should I do?

I say you should Pray. Pray and hope the gods only smite the Paladin and Warlord. Also, invisibility for the chance they might not see you.

While it mostly depends on the DM, I see two viable options for you:
1. Distance yourself as far away from this unfortunate pair as you can
2. Anger the remaining gods. I see two results:
a. The more unfriendly gods might just duke it out due to proximity
b. Cataclysmic lulz
Either way, best of luck.

If we were going for the lulz i would make illusions of the gods making angry faces at your party members.

Inform the DM beforehand you will be cantripping the voices and faces of the angered gods at the DM's narrative leisure. Watch the leaders squirm in anticipation of your prank, and gain favour with gods (DM-inclusive) by helping to chastise these mortal upstarts!

Don't look at angry deities as something to avoid, but an opportunity! See, if the god is the aggressor, you are justified in slaying them and drinking deeply of their divine essence, thus fueling your own magnificent power. After the first or second god, the paladin should be able to count as their own divine patron. Maybe come up with a custom feat to reflect the power they get from themselves.

Someone takes suggestions from the comments box, though last I checked, Dash wasn't a Warlord.

As for what you should do with your wizard - you have the perfect opportunity to screw with the two by creating illusions of said Gods. Alternatively, if you don't want these two to die for whatever reasons, you could fake siding with the Gods at some point, then double-cross them and help kill them when they're vulnerable.

Maybe she took a feat that lets her use inspiring word once per day?
