Initially, I was certain this would fail due to the "screen-capping your own comment isn't content" and "you're a thumbwhore" responses.

More than 450 thumbs and the front page later, I must admit I'm pleasantly surprised. Thanks FJ, this is my first post with more than about 30 thumbs.

I'm making a point of trying to thumb up all D&D story comments. If yours does decently well, screencap it and post it. Or screencap it and post in in spite of how it does. I don't care, but mostly this is my way of throwing up two fingers to anyone who thinks this isn't proper content.

My first ever campaign, about session 7
>Make it to first large city
>Finish off a few quests we had to do, deliver a few packages, etc etc
>Stay at a hotel
>Few more things happen, go to see mayor, average campaign things
>I ask my DM if I can go kill a few thieves in the city
>he says I cant just find thieves like that
>"Okay, I walk outside the church, and yell 'what am I gonna do with all this gold in my pocket'"
>dm thinks for a second, says okay, roll a check
>I feel someone pick pocketing me
>I roll to attack, roll 20
>Swing my mighty longsword around
>Hit a child in the face, kill him instantly
>party surrounded by paladins
>whole party slaughtered by paladins
pretty great first campaign

My best story of Pathfinder
>playing a wizard, new to campaign
>started at level 2, entire party of level 6's and 7's
>spent most of the time horrified for my life
>in jungle of ******* t-rexes and cr-12 jellyfish monsters
>we end up riding some wyverns to our next location
>they fly up above a lake and begin a descent onto said lake, wings tucked in and free falling as fast as possible
>im on the second wyvern(all in a line), with the one carrying the donkey(cavaliers mount) in front
>i think for a little bit, ask about distances between the wyverns and whatnot
>feather fall the front wyvern and leap off of mine to fall away and watch the glorious experience about to befall my friends
>room goes silent for like 5 minutes (for those unsure, feather fall makes any target falling slow to a drastically slower fall speed, low enough that it wouldn't hurt to land anywhere)
>the wyvern in front instantly goes from like mach 2 fall speeds to barely moving, causing a 'pile-up' with wyverns
>the party proceeds to fall around 400 or 500 feet to the lake below, 1d6 damage per 10 feet
>nobody stood a chance, no one survives.
>mfw i tpk'd a group of 5-6 people all level 6-7 with a first level, non damaging spell

The problem with our group is we all agree that any time we want to play it must be for 5hours plus

We get into the swing and don't wanna stop. it means we usually end up planning a campaign months in advance.

It is one of the querks of our group but I love 'em.
Do you have any campaign recommendations for either Pathfinder or D&D?
Our group usually writes our own based on a vote on theme, setting ect so we rarely play proper structured campaigns.

I've read this one, I think from a different player's perspective. Maybe it was a copy cat. The player was Squidbits and one of his party members was a bear who became a high class citizen with a butler.

you can play online. find a group, make online dungeons, play them. D&D is great fun if you have an imagination.

I've got a few stories, but this one is one of my favorites.
>First time playing Pathfinder.
>5 person party: A Suli-Jann Cavalier named Isaac, an Elf Ranger named Zordlon, a Gnome Rogue (Ralnier), a Human Druid (I... forget the name), and a recently deceased Ratfolk Magus (I'll just call him Whiskers)
>Returning to kingdom after mostly successful raid of an Ogre Fortress (went pretty well, except for Whiskers being instantly eviscerated in combat, but that's another story)
>Upon returning, DM gets to work setting up and introducing Whiskers's new character, while Ralnier and the Druid go and hit the shops and tavern.
>Zordlon and Isaac now find themselves bored, with nothing to do. That is, until Isaac pulls out some bottles of whiskey he had grabbed in the fortress.
>They begin talking, and after a few drinks, decide to set up some of the bottles on a nearby fence.
>Isaac and Zordlon begin taking turns shooting at the bottles, trading weapons (Isaac's heavy crossbow and Zordlon's pistol) and drinking as they went. DM is still ignoring them.
>Isaac suddenly has a brilliant idea.
>"Hey, let's let my horse have a turn"
>While everybody else is doing their own thing, Zordlon and Isaac wedge the pistol into the mount's mouth
>"Hey, DM, can you roll an attack for my horse?"
>"Huh? Wha--oh, uh. Sure."
>DM casually tosses the d20
>NAT. TWENTY.
>Crit is then confirmed
>The horse makes a perfect shot. Destroys not one, but two bottles.
>DM still unaware of what we are doing.
>Isaac and Zordlon are dumbfounded, and want to see it again.
>Drunk Isaac orders his horse to shoot again.
>"Hey, can you roll for my horse again?"
>Critical Failure
>Horse no longer has a skull
And that's the story of how our Cavalier lost his first mount.

#110 - applescryatnight ONLINE (01/23/2014) [-]
guys i wanna be a dm for the first time.
im not very experienced, and my friend who played dnd multiple times might have to help me pretty often.
any tips or things i should know?
i have a badass plot im thinking of, one that would start off with the abduction of the main characters who escape a pocket dimension together.

they then go back to stop their abductors, but go to the wrong dimension and are confronted by a mad god who mentally separates them into their own realities, so each of the characters is basically in a coma and thinks they are still awake, while the god ***** with the insecurities and moralities of the characters (not the players, i know that would be a little ****** up) and stuff like that.

so if one player is a paladin, he might be trapped in a world where he continuously has to commit evil acts and is constantly rewarded for doing bad while punished for doing good. the characters only wake up from the coma when they are completely mentally defeated or if they break the hold of the god.

after that i have yet to think up ideas.

im new to this, but i still have months to learn all the rules of dnd and make a story. we are currently playing our first game, and only had a few sessions.
User avatar #123 to #110 - Sabre (01/23/2014) [-]
I haven't read the responses, so this may be some re-cap.
I started DMing for the same group of friends who were playing in the story above; we have one other friend who DMs a second game so he and I and I can each play as well as DM.

Anywho, things I've learnt since starting to DM 3 years ago:

1) Your party WILL surprise you. Try to predict them as best you can, but accept that your best won't be good enough, and be ready to roll with the punches.
2) Be consistent.
3) Your word is law. Do NOT allow your players to railroad you just because they've been playing longer.
4) Pay attention to the interplay between rules 2 and 3. If you make a rule, and then waffle because one of your adventurers objects later on, the guy who got ****** over by your initial ruling is going to be really, and justifiably, angry.
5) Try to minimize homebrew for your players (feel free to modify your own traps/monsters as you see fit). If you allow it, make sure it's YOUR homebrew, not whatever they found on the D20 SRD. That **** tends to be horrifically imbalanced at best.

trust me, i know that my friends have limitless creativity. not all of it is good creativity, but creativity none the less.

i mean, instead of asking questions by intimidation or politeness, one of my friends decided he wanted to convince the townsfolk he was a fire god. it worked.
he got answers, and now we have a squad of gnomes protecting us, so no complaints on that end. im trying to make my story as malleable as possible, so if something extremely weird happens, i can try to go with it.

i plan on being as strict as necessary with rules. i will try to be as fair as possible for all the characters, and im not gonna throw one character a bone and ignore others. of course if it gets too hard i might ease up a bit to make sure everyone is still having fun, but im not gonna bend about rules unnecessarily.

and i dont think imma do a lot of homebrewing. ill keep it simple. and only use homebrewed monsters if its some sort of special boss or something.

All good instinct. Above all else, if your players are having fun, you're succeeding.
I find demanding a fairly detailed backstory helps a lot; it gets players into their character and gives you a good sense of what is and is not in-character.
Be ready to make modifications on the fly if a boss is to hard or easy.
Keep a list of at least half a dozen names of each basic race/gender combination on hand in case you need to introduce a random NPC when it would make sense to do so (this is more important in city environments.

Several of the important contributors to this thread were so sadistic it frightens me. I am not, however, above pilfering their twisted schemes. A good trap is just as memorable as a good boss.

Only advice I could make is have a backup plan. Players may not do what you expect them to.

Hah! Never do what you expect them to is more like it!

Oh man, I know what you mean. One time, my group was playing an evil campaign. We found a merchant's caravan, which we quickly apprehended and pilfered. The DM intended us to use the gold to fund our misadventures, but our lizardfolk had a better idea. See, he was hungry, but hunting children down, as succulent as they were, was pretty suspect. But... What if he didn't need to hunt?
And thus, St. Scaley's Home for Orphans was founded. The rest of the campaign was spent building and managing the orphanage, gaining the townsfolk's trust, keeping the children well fed, and feasting like kings upon the entrails of societies unwanted little mistakes. As we became a more well-known business, more orphans came in, and life went happily ever after for our evil little party.

My players once turned what I intended to be a big scary boss into a pomeranian. He was pissy and angry all the time, biting people and **** , until one of the group's members used a Wished that he "loved everyone."

And I thought that FATAL was messed up.

You might want to read this and have a look at the gallery before saying that anything is less messed up as FATAL.

This **** is small potatoes compared to FATAL shenanigans.
