Actually, here's a prompt ripe for Story Time that I don't think has been covered before: Prison escapes! That's practically a staple of adventuring. Sure, in context it might be a well of souls in a demonic hellscape instead of the county jail, but the principle's the same.

I was disappointed when I watched the party try to play the whole "guard! Guard! He's sick!" Act. Fortunately, the guards had a plan in place. They had an inmate dressed as a guard, and they had him enter the cell.

We came up with a not stupid plan later, involving the structural integrity of the loading area, and slipping in to modify the supply order. The loading dock collapsed and took a chunk of wall with it. That weakened the structural integrity enough that, with a riot, the prisoners broke down the wall. There were not enough prison guards to handle it.

My mage character in a Shadowrun campaign looked quite young for her age. she was imprisoned in the basement of a child trafficking ring to be sold later. I waited until someone showed up to deliver food.

Then I blasted them with a really good Stunbolt spell. Made a break for it by summoning a forest spirit to act as my shield (naturally the only thing I had was the dress I was wearing). It was tiring to use a lot of spells on the escape, and I was nearly burned out on the drain, but luckily I got far enough where the rest of the party had broken into the house to rescue me. We all escaped before the cops showed up.

Odd, had a story time typed up, and while it was accepted, it didn't actually post. Oh well!

Basically it was a tale of my character imprisoned in the basement of a child trafficking ring. She looked really young for her age, hence her capture. Luckily, the goons that nabbed me didn't think my character was actually a skilled mage.

I waited for the right moment and then used my spells to summon a tree spirit for a shield and blasted my way out. :3

We've got a troll in the dungeon, so I've turned on comment moderation for a while. Your comments may take an hour to show up, or whenever I get around to approving the latest batch.

Honestly, it's kind of exciting. This is something I wanted to try out for a while in an "exercising petty authority" kind of way, but I never had a good reason.

Of the options I had to respond with, the other was to disable guest comments entirely. But most of the commenters here are guests, and I didn't feel like forcing everyone to make accounts and log in just to leave the usual comments. Just keep it in mind.

Ohhh! I thought the ComicFury system broke. XD

That's cool then. Didn't know petty authority needed a reason to do stuff, but that's probably my evil DM side thinking out loud. ;)

I'm glad you picked the first one.
And trolls will be trolls.
Just have to put a stick up their nose, and wack them their own club.(HP)
