Rolled a nat 20 when sneak attacking something with a crossbow. Rolled a nat 20 on the crit confirmation. DM had me roll again, randomly instigating the insta-kill rule - one we've never before or since opted to use. Nat 20. By this point, the entire table is dead silent. DM asks me to roll one more time. 19.

Sad thing is, I was shooting at an orc.
Shh. My common sense is tingling. . .

How about "Possessing the intelligent tooth of your party-mate"? Oh, and I have a necklace that follows me around whenever I possess someone (Stranger with the Burning Eyes PrC from Frank and K's Tome of Necromancy). So that appeared in his mouth, around his tooth. It was quite a hilarious moment.

Hmm, let's see. I once bluffed my way inside an orc fortress by holding a dead orc corpse in front of the eye slit in the door and speaking gruffly. Then when they opened the door, we fired the ballista we had set up behind the door. The magically reloading, flaming ballista, mind you. So much fun.

A friend and I sold Tenser's Floating Disks with rugs on them as "discount flying carpets".

Leaving town quickly afterward was a mandatory part of the plan...

How about Bluffing a potentially important NPC into thinking her date had touched a six-year old in inappropiate places and then Shattering said date's pants? :D

Got a mug, and every day would contingencsy spell predigtation to lower the water in it by one degree... we then faced the BBEG, I put down the mug, plane shift followed by quicken create water... the second the mug was filled the DM looked at me and said... "What was the point..." I calmly explained that I just got a substance below absolute zero, which would end all thermal energy on the plane... Then demanded XP for all the creatures I had just killed, including the whole party, the BBEG, the Princess, etc....
A player once asked me if there was any way to make a Tarrasque more evil... 3 sessions later he was stoned with D20s as the PC led an exidus out of the path of a Dire Tarrasque of Legendary Wonder.

How'd you manage that from a different plane? Also, can't you only have one Contingency active at one time?

Craft Contingent Spell might have worked, though. That also doesn't have a limit on how long it can be inactive.

And it's a personal thing as well... can't have a contingency of a spell you can't cast on yourself.

Also has to be cast on a creature. The limit is based on Hit Dice, so...

Edit: Perhaps an Animated Object?

A) Physics wise, that doesn't work.  At all.  It's not even wrong.
B) "Prestidigitation cannot deal damage or affect the concentration of spellcasters"
C) Contingent doesn't work like that
D) It's only chill, not cool by some arbitrary temperature
E) Physics are a house rule anyway, given that in DnD the speed of light is instantaneous.
F) How do you cast it from another plane anyway?


I do, however, concede that it does indeed qualify as a literal interpretation of the thread title.

The answer to all those questions can be solved when you understand that our DM didn't have a clue what he was doing, and was trying to railroad a chaotic eivl party into saving the princess... We desided if this didn't work, we'd keep the princess as our own slave...

My CG Silverbrow human bard called out our party's paladin for torturing a kobold. Before then he'd been violating his code of conduct repeatedly without repercussions, and the other characters were chaotic and/or neutral, and in most cases supported the paladin's cruel actions. When he refused to comply with my demands to cease torturing the kobold, I ran deeper into the dungeon, calling out to the kobolds (in draconic) that we were sure were deeper inside, warning them that an evil, fearsome force was coming to get them.

My bard wasn't terribly intelligent, and I enjoyed repeatedly calling out the paladin on his clearly unjust methods. Anyway, I startled the party so much with my actions (I'd convinced them that the caverns were likely full of kobolds), that they chased my bard down and beat him unconscious. The bard left the party and I handed the character sheet over to the DM and told him I created an excellent background for a future BBEG.

Then I brought in a LN necromancer and showed the party what a real evil character was like. Too bad the game didn't last much longer beyond that point, as I'd just started to really enjoy the reversal of roles -- the paladin, whom I could never definitively prove was violating his code of conduct, now had to deal with my character expertly defending his outlandishly evil actions with superior intelligence.

Yeah, that was pretty damned cool.
