So this thread is for those of us who love hearing epic Dungeons and Dragons (or any other Pen and Paper game for that matter) stories that you've had and would like to share with the rest of us. Everyone here obviously likes RPGs, so I thought it would be a good venue for us to share some epic stories. This thread is meant only for fun and humor and to hear and tell some extremely epic PnP stories. Go forth and tell us your best.

THE RULES:
1) No massive wall of text. Keep your stories short so that people will read them. You don't need to describe every roll and every detail. Get to the point. Chekhov's gun is a good rule of thumb.

2) Since there is no way that I can check the veracity of your stories, you are honor-bound to only tell stories that are true and that you have directly witnessed. Anyone can come up with a good but fake story.

3) Every week on Saturday, I'll put up a new poll (I hope I can do this, I'm not really sure how the polling mechanics work) with what most people thought were the best stories of that week. I’ll let you guys vote and whoever wins it gets their post put up on the second post of this thread. So it’ll be there for everyone to read and enjoy.

Let me know if you guys come up with anything else I should add to the rules and anything else I should change. Now, tell us your stories! I'll start with a few that I've read elsewhere. They break the rules I've made because I didn't experience them but I thought you guys might enjoy them.


Edit: Can't edit post after 1 week. Still want to hear epic stories.

One that isn't mine and that I found and thought was hilarios.

Play 3.5 D&D. Everyone has decided to roll up monks. We didn’t plan this out, we all showed up with insane kung-fu back-stories, school names, etc. DM quietly puts away the notes for the game he had been planning. We start out in a noodle-shop. Two Monks, one LG, one LE are arguing about the best use of the power bestowed by mastery of Kung-fu. The good one says that kung-fu shows that we all have a place in life. The Evil one believe that kung-fu masters should rest at the top. My character is a drunken master, CN (DM fiat). Saunter over to table. Soon join by the other guy, LN. We can’t agree on anything. Finally say something that lets us stop the philosophic debate. “We should decide this like warriors.” Initiative rolled. Ones all around. Evil dude goes first, by virtue of the improved initiative feat. Attempts to flip table aside dramatically. Rolls a two. Having hurt his hand, he decides a flying kick over the table would be better. Rolls acrobatics and attack. 1, 2. Foot catches side of table, falls onto chair, and flips backwards. I throw my saki at the good dude. He catches it and throws it back. It breaks on my face. I kick table, breaking it in half. The lantern on the table falls over on me and I go jump in the decorative pond outside to put myself out. The good and the neutral monk stare each-other down. The good one attempts to punch him. 1, 2, 1. Trips over table, dislocates own arm. Neutral guy does a back-flip out of the way. Rolls acrobatics, one for the jump, one for the landing. 18, 3. Crashes into nearby empty table. Knocks himself out. This all took slightly less than six seconds. Noddle store guy yells at us for wrecking his shop.

Of the week---you have a short edit window for every post, I hope you realize that. I doubt a mod can change the contents of a "locked-in" post, if it's a software setting.

Edit: Hm, maybe a mod can change the contents of a post; I think I've seen some in-post editing for offensive content before, but not sure where.

Did not realize. Ah well, it was worth a shot. Anyway, I still want to hear some epic stories!
