Is it though? Remember that he put all his points into Charisma. Even if he goes for it, Yoff probably doesn’t even have the stats to make it a successful attack. There’s little heroism in flailing angrily at empty air before collapsing.

Groff probably could’ve made it work though.

I would say it’s worth it, take the action, die, then bring back his other (higher level) character to continue the campaign. He’s trying to play a class that doesn’t fit with his play style, and I’ve seen that happen enough times to know how it’s going to end up.

probably still the same level character as his other one. he just rolled and set it up so poorly its useless in everything he wanted it to do.

This would be the point where I’d try to cause as much damage to 2 as possible, get killed, and go into another room to play a different game.

Remember, his character is poorly built (looks like he put all his points into charisma) and with a class he is not familiar with so it wouldn’t surprise me if he is even able to hit 2 or even if he does, he does much damage.

Like we aren’t guilty of the occasional impulsive decision too. Furthermore, I imagine many of us are guilty of being enraged and pouty when that impulsive decision doesn’t work out for us :p

Yeah..definitely worth it! Especially if he rolls a critical fail!

It was at least nice of the DM/GM to let him survive his critical failure of a character…. Of course, this lets the suffering continue longer so the lesson might stick.

3 actually seems to be surprisingly accommodating. Sounds like he’s allowing 1 to re-build his character to allow it to actually do the job he intended it to do.

Why, 3? Just let Yoff die and end this charade.

That. I’m a little bit surprised by myself, but I don’t find this very comical anymore…..but then again….Tim’s the boss 🙂

I don’t know if it’s entirely meant to be comical. It feels more like character development. I mean I could see 3 just trying to get 1 past the batman obsession that he’s had since the beginning of their group (right?). So why not let him get Bat Man out of his system?

But I mean, I find it pretty amusing myself.

Player 3 isn’t immune from cruelty – he just lets it show in different ways.

Player: I want to knock over the basilisk
Me (DM): the thing has EIGHT legs and you’re going to try and knock it over?
Player: yeah.
Me: *rolls saving throw at advantage… Double 1’s* *facepalm* with skills unseen before by any mortal, you tip the basilisk, knocking it prone.
