Part 1 here: https://www.reddit.com/r/DnDGreentext/comments/mlvxz4/the_time_the_dice_decided_to_be_stupid_and_then_a/
TLDR for that: The dice were being wonky all around and then a plot twist happens. The session ended mid fight.
Be me in 3.5: Human frenzied berzerker
Be not me: Hombrew warforged necromancer (wizard/cleric blend…somehow), Genasi mage, Human mage, Wood Elf Fighter, NPC Goliath friend(?)
Fight finally resumes
For a quick reminder, I'm flanked by two much stronger frenzied berzerkers who are Jarl and son. Son's betrothed just freed our mage.
Genasi mage uses a maximized spell against the son
Unfortunatley part of it missed, though 72 damage is nothing to sneeze at
Elf Fighter goes in to assist me and starts attacking the old jarl
Back to me, I full attack with my spiked chain
Proceed to roll a 1, 17, and 8
DM graciously ignores crit fails and the two attacks hit
Do 69 damage in total
Human mage casts a fog cloud on top of the three of us
Was visibly confused until I realized there's now a 20% chance for all in it to miss
As such, the Jarl misses half his attacks
He still does 58 damage in total
Still standing but looking hurt
Son then attacks
Misses one attack but still does 31 damage
I am now at -1 hp
However I'm still standing because the Frenzied Berzerker gives you diehard, allowing one to live at up to -10 hp
Goliath ally attempts to shoot into the fog but is talked down by human mage
Genasi mage then turns human mage invisible. She in turn jumps into the fog
Warforged also jumps into the fog
Proceeds to attack with his glaive of spell storing and unloads a combust into the son
Does 66 damage and kills the son
It's my turn again
The dice don't like that we're doing well, so I proceed to roll a 1, 4, and 9
Due to the fog I completely miss everything
DM has me roll reflex save
Proceed to roll a natural 20
Finally some luck
DM says, and I quote: "NOOO"
Turns out the human mage attempted to cast Otiliuke's Resiliant Sphere on me, and I freaking dodged it.
Jarl attacks and I go down.
Rest of the party continues to attack the jarl
Goliath guards start to spill in
Warforged pops out to discover this and has his thralls attack them
Goliath princess is also helping
Genasi throws a fireball at three guards
Fighter gets hit a bunch from the Jarl and retreats, drinking some potions
They eventually take out the scrubs
The Jarl remains standing
Warforged has thralls disarm Jarl
Nat 20 on hit
Nat 20 on strength check
Other thrall grapples the jarl and pins him
Warforged then attacks for the kill
Rolls 34 damage in total, stabbing him in the face
Jarl still freaking lives
Jarl attempts to break free and fails
Warforged stabs him again and ends him
Party starts to retreat out…
To Be Continued….
Thanks to all who are following this lol. Feel free to ask any questions
- So I have to re-write a portion of my campaign thanks to my players.
- Character about to be arrested for murder, will result in inconvenient splitting of the party
- Dual Wielding in 5e
