> Be Me, playing in a mostly homebrewed campaign
> Be Large 6'0 Dragonborn Paladin, pledged to be the anti-paladin, sworn to revenge and dedicated to murder the gods who once killed his family.
> Be party, tasked with clearing the ruins of a castle by killing ghosts, ghouls, and banshees inside
> Enter the first room of the castle, party can't see inside very well. Using candles to see shadows of ghosts.
> Struggling to hit targets, ghosts are weak, but so hard to hit. Finally hit the ghosts and kill them.
> Party groans, lots of ghosts left to fight.
> Enter second room, two ghosts sitting at table, dice in between them.
>Stop the party from attacking. Hatch a much better plan.
>Walk into the room pretending to be chill with the ghosts, calling out in a "Spoooooky" accent of common "Hey boys! Deal me in!"
> DM asks for performance check.
> Nat 20.
>Absolutely nail my ghost act, pulling off a perfect ghostly voice and appear "Ghostly and non threatening"
> Ghosts welcome me into the game, offering me the dice. No fucking clue what they're playing. Roll 3 of the dice on the table and look back at them.
> Ghosts look kinda confused, nod their heads anyway.
>Pass dice toward ghosts.
> Ghosts pass hands through the dice, never picking them up but rolling them over.
>Roll all 5.
> Ends on a 2,3,5,2,1,
> Not sure what to do with the dice.
> Ghost re-rolls the 2.
> Don't understand what is happening. WTF are the rules.
> Re-rolls the 2 into a 4, ghost cheers.
> Everything clicks.
>Ghosts are playing fucking YAHTZEE
>Motherfucker just rolled a large straight and won.
> Play the ghosts in Yahtzee instead of fighting them because character never turns down a chance to gamble and fighting ghosts is lame.
> Ghosts win the game.
> Ghost is so excited that he finally won the game against a "normal" person he feels free for the first time.
> Ghost thanks me and he and his gambling buddies leave us in peace.
>Still shocked this worked, party laughing their ass off.
>Beat some ghosts by being a gambling addict.
