A speech was out of the question while under the cone of silence, was he planning an intimidating stare or pose?

That isn’t DM-y enough.

He also soiled and defecated himself.

He might be having trouble making Batman but I bet he would make a spectacular bard. :p

Can this be nominated for a grammy or something? Is there an award for comics? I literally couldn’t stop laughing….

Really it isn’t that bad an idea if done correctly, and I could see a build like this being quite powerful at higher levels, working Intimidation into a Knight build is actually kind of intriguing.

What’s funny is I’ve never seen anyone try this before, and I’ve seen some *very* unique builds over the years where I played lol (best hands down was a Dwarven thief-acrobat that specialized in interrogation…we had some very…interesting sessions lol)

There may be a reason you’ve never seen it before…

Knigths with intimidation are not all that rare, but ones that have a decent enough Cha to use it are. I guess its because they usually try to take up leadership spots in the party, and thera can only be so many…

For your consideration though, paladins actually work great with high cha scores. In my particular party our highest cha characters are tied in our paladin and our *barbarian* and they actually work great together,

Makes a knight, puts all points into charisma. Feels more like the dumb Troll then the dark Knight, really. xD

His Batman antics remind me of Krod.

Assuming they’re playing D&D-like game, the character should have more attribute points than the maximum a single attribute can be raised to…so where are the rest of his points? Clearly not intelligence or wisdom.

Looking back, it seems they’re playing Pathfinder, and while I’m not familiar with character creation there, I’m sure it’s a similar situation.

Also not in Dexterity, Willpower or Wisdom given that he suffered a Spectacular Failure and was Frightened and the spike trap from earlier.

Given his armor and weapon though he must have some decent strength, especially given that he is a Nord, probably invested in Stamina as well going by his normal play style.

Just to share how this builds CAN be used to great effect: Once my party got a quest to rescue some merchants they had been dealing with from a cult that was going to sacrifice them. they where high enough level that individual cultists were not a threath, but they were about to assault a temple full, so they stopped in a nearby hill to plan. They wound up deciding to proceed with stealth and try to thin them out as much as possible before getting detected… but the paladin (ironically their stealth expert so they expected him to take… Read more »

No idea. I have never heard of it and im pretty sure the paladin hasnt either, he was inspired mainly by some WWE antics. Maybe the cleric had seen it.

Can’t speak for others…but I really like it when The Players come up and have a story arc. As a table top RPG lover, I’m dying laughing reading this, If you’ve played with enough people, at some point, someone is going to act like One *LOL*
