45 minutes and three dailies spent on that boat trip...

No podcasts this week, mainly because I had cause to get pretty sad, but also because Session 50, hopefully tomorrow night, is a bit of a doozy to plan.

Mind control.
Got any good stories about it?

That comment made me giggle more than I should've.

Mind control... Ah, yes. You see, I used to have that one PC, who was essentially Tibbs, but successful. Running a worldwide organized crime syndicate, dealing with drugs, assassinations, smuggling, all that kinda stuff, outside the knowlege of the other PC's. But that's not the point. The point is, said character was rather fond of abusing mind-control nanotech to do his bidding and secretly injected with them everyone they met including random passerbys.(Also, outside the party's knowlege). So, when the Season 1's Big Bad mr. Evil's plan to take over the world and then take over other worlds, we were kinda' outnumberd... Severely outnumbered. Also, not quite able to get into five different places in the world in the span of an hour. So, I go and trigger the enthrallment and we're watching what ensues from the monitors in big bad lairs.
A:"Wait, what the hell is going on?"
Me:"I'd assume people in said locations inclooding the mooks are turning into mindless flesh puppets dead set on stopping mr. Evil."
B:"Yeah, we kinda' see that, but why?"
Me:"I'm innocent I swear."
There was also the fact that I almost commited a near TPK when they found out who was the leader of above mentioned syndicate, by setting them against one another in mind control mode.

How about a failed mind control attempt. Our party's "Dwarf" (Goliath) Barbarian had just recently received a sentient hammer name Whelm that hate Vampires. It is then we come to a town living in fear of said undead. We wind up fighting them, and kicking their ashes. The leader flees out a tunnel(and our cleric's daylight spell) persuade by the Barbarian. Suddenly, it spins around and attempts to charm the "Dwarf." The player just points to his sheet where rage is written and says, "No." Enraged. Barbarians are immune to charm.

Fighting the Boss of an Illithid dungeon. An Elder Brain, of course. I'm the cleric. The rest of the party fails their will saves...and become completely controlled by the Elder Brain.

So here I am, against both the rest of the party AND a boss meant to go against all of us. I summon a celestial lion. ...I win the fight. Clerics can be overpowered.
