Be me, relatively new DM running like the 7th session of a homebrew 5e campaign
Be not me, Human AC tank Eldritch Knight, Tiefling Spore Druid, Kobold Rogue, Aaracockra Bloodhunter Werebear, Human Fighter Leeroy Jankens, and finally a Green Dragonborn Wild Magic Sorcerer.
Party riding in a cart to a certain city
A wild displacer beast appears
Fighter tries to calm it down and give it food to leave them alone
Druid and Bloodhunter hear something else moving behind them
Like 3 animal handling
Displacer beast backs off a little
Another displacer beast jumps out from behind the cart and fucks up the Bloodhunter
Leroy goes ham on the first beast, action surge and a crit
Leroy has a homebrew feat that lets him make another turn when he crits or one shots something
Displacer beast is low
Blood hunter is low
Bloodhunter fights anyway because yes
Bard and cleric NPCs start offering ranged support
His player isn't here
I decide he would cast magic missile, so he wouldn't have to deal with the displacer beasts displacement
Roll a d20 for wild surge
Roll a 1
Magic goes wild
Roll a d100
Get a 7
"7-8: You cast Fireball as a 3rd-level spell centered on yourself."
The sorcerer us in the middle of the group
Druid has a homebrew feat that make his nat 1s nat 20s but in the stupidest way possible, so he is flung away from the explosionbecause yes
Bard gets knocked
Sorcerer gets knocked 3 DAMAGE AWAY FROM INSTANT DEATH
Eldritch Knight used Shield Master to Ignore damge
Bloodhunter used EK and his two big fuckoff shields as cover, taking half damage
Cleric takes the blast and doesn't even get knocked
Rogue, Leroy, and first displacer beast were out of range
Displacer Beast 2 is looking fucked up, missing a leg and a tentacle
The Bloodhunter transforms into his werebear form for the first time and scares the shit out of DB number 2 and it GTFOs so fast
Leroy finishes off DB 1 with a screw attack (like metroid) using his sword, slicing it in half
We were all scared shitless but no one died, thank gods
- Players trigger several traps at once, DM is forced to reveal plot twists months early to avoid TPK
- The party’s pet chicken
- Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything Confirmed Subclasses
