Content of the article: "Sorcerer plays dead too good"
be me: yuan-ti pureblood sorcerer
be not me: DM, half elf palidan, human fighter
party is clearing out a bad guy hide out where some priests are about to perform a ritual on a prisoner
sorcerer stands by staircase, melting priest's with burning hands who try to run up the staircase to get help
dm asks sorcerer to join him in private chat
dm: "roll me two 15 constitution saving throws"
rolls an 8 and 11
dm: "someone comes down the stairs, stabs you in the back and you take 68 damage.." (sorcerers base hp is 36)
dm: "…but 56 of that is poison damage which you are immune to because of your race"
dm: "you can trick your attacker into thinking your dead, but you'll have to trick your party as well."
lightbulb.exe, imma Lannisters send there regards this mofo
dm: "on your turn you can take an action or roll a deception roll disguised as a death saving throw to continue to play dead"
rejoin party chat, fighters mad
one round of combat ensue, dm asks sorcerer to roll a "death saving throw"
rolls 12 +7 deception proficiency
fighter gets mad at dm (our dm rolls our death throws and doesnt tell us the result to keep up the suspense)
sorcerer starts sweating about how hes going to tell the dm his deception rolls.
another round of combat, paladin cleans up the last couple of priests while the fighter turns his attention towards the sorcerer's "killer"
still sweating, sorcerer rolls a secret deception roll, passes
bad guy attacks fighter, dropping fighter to 13 hp
sorcerer: oops.exe, my friends are going to die while I lie on the floor totally not dead
fighter attacks, then uses an action surge to attack again
bad guy is bloodied
paladin runs in and kills the bad guy
party runs to sorcerer to heal him.
sorcerer sits ups: "guys I'm fine! I'm sorry"
dm: secretly upset that the sorcerer blundered his opportunity to be a bad ass
sorcerer: literally the most healthy member of the party because he just lied on the floor for the entire combat
First time posting, but I hope it gave you guys a chuckle 😀
- An uninteresting title about a death/undeath themed party
- Help with combat balance
- My party is doing too much damage relative to enemy hit points.
