>Be me, DM from Hell throws a dragon at 4th level party
>Be not me, Gentle DM who coddles his players
>Our current adventure party was level 4 last night as they wandered haphazardly into Thundertree looking for a druid…
>Running into some Blights and Ash Zombies had them wasting a few spells without much care as they flaunted their power.
>One of the party members (our Monk) knew there was potentially a dragon named Venomfang in the tower.
>He kept this fact a secret because he has a vendetta and wanted to kill the dragon more than you can imagine!
>When they approached the building the rogue (who happens to be a Tabaxi) scouted ahead stealthily.
>He decided to climb the tower looking in archery murder holes ends up climbing whole tower to broken roof 40 feet up.
>The remainder of the party gets anxious and decides to chance sneaking in, finding nothing but dusty furniture and a door…
>Just as the rogue was peeking over the top of the tower, the cleric decided to open an inner door……….
>At the same instant both players saw a young green dragon laying on his small treasure pile.
>The dragon spotted the cleric and leapt to his feet with a roar!
>Next thing you know, the monk pushed past the cleric and sprang into action attacking the dragon bare handed! HAHA!
>Long story short, they had a knock down drag out brawl. Nearly everyone in the party died, but somehow managed to survive.
>I decided that Venomfang was holding his breath-weapon as a last resort, assuming he could easily dispatch this party of youngster.
>When he got down to half his HP damage the party landed a few critical hits, and in a panic the dragon decided to flee.
>Oddly enough, just before the dragon took flight, the Tabaxi rogue did an acrobatic leap onto the dragon's back (not knowing Venomfang was taking off).
>The dragon got to 60 feet in the air when the fighter used his Eldritch Knight spell ability and cast Sleep on the dragon.
>His roll was 1 point higher than the dragon's remaining HP. Soooo…
>The dragon fell asleep and fell from the sky…The rogue also fell, but had one more hit point then the dragon, thus not falling asleep.
>Fortunately there was a 30-foot tall tree right next to them as they fell, and the rogue made an exceptional save on his Acrobatics check.
>Taking half damage, he landed in the tree.
>Unfortunately for the dragon, the fall damage was too much and he was incapacitated.
>Topping it off, the cleric ran out and slammed the dragon skull with his Warhammer.
>Thus ended one of my best gaming nights ever!!!
