We railroaded the DM once, to let us keep the tarrasque. See, you can pretty easily dominate it for weeks at a time on a single cast. It was of great help against Atropus, the undead planet.

It doesn't compare to a pet tarrasque, but we got our DM to let us keep an owlbear cub. With a ranger and a druid in the party, training it was a breeze. We then made it into the mascot of our fledgling nation.

Strange, but the same thing happened to us just a couple weeks ago. Only difference is that our "ranger" is technically an inquisitor built like a ranger and our druid has wood for the trees.

We also convinced our DM for that campaign to let us hold a massive roleplayed festival to attract suitors for our new queen. It's happening Thursday, and there's gonna be a bard-off, a jousting tournament, and a melee.

A bard-off... never had one of those. I once incited a riot when I was being sold into slavery. Apparently ranks in dance ARE useful for certain combat situations!

I have a similar story. Our party ended up being caught and carried away by a bunch of rocs. Fighting them wasn't doing our party any good, so, I had the ingenious idea of using my ranger's animal empathy to pacify the one carrying me (lucky that they're just overgrown birds, not actual magical creatures).

Seeing how successful I was, the other two rangers followed suit, and that became the start of our wondrous zoo.

My party just got a full grown owlbear by biting one and then diplomacying it. ...They are darakhuls (intelligent ghouls). I think they have plans to train it as a siegeowlbear.
