What the actual you know what?!

Post Sun Apr 18, 2021 8:22 pm

I had 11 wood golems patrolling a clearing. 11.

A party of 4 level 1 adventurers attacked. I laughed. I was like "You're all rolling up new characters."

I attack their fighter (level 1 human fighter, chain mail, shield, long sword). For FIVE TURNS IN A ROW WITH MULTIPLE ATTACKERS and couldn't get a single d20 to roll over 10. What the actual you know what?!

They won. They ACTUALLY won. I AM CURSED! THE DICE GODS HAVE FORSAKEN ME.

They got lucky this time but next time the dice will make them pay harshly lol. The universe has a way of balancing itself back out. I predict a TPK at the hands of a blind, lame goblin.

I'm still shocked. How?! How could my dice have betrayed me?! I mean the odds on this are insanely unlikely.

Sometimes it really do be like that.

Probability, man. It's weird.

I have a player in one of my campaigns that is and elf fighter/magic-user that always rolls terribly when they need a good roll but always excels with saving throws. They wish their character would just bite the dust already but is somehow oddly invincible. In combat when I roll for enemy attacks they often miss. At this point we are convinced he is the king of failing forward.

So we came super close to a TPK tonight - the fighter went down first, followed by the cleric, then the paladin. With nothing but a druid/scout left, the fight continued. It was 1 wood golem, 1 party member.

Both had grievous wounds. Both were at one hit point.

Both rolled a 3 for initiative.

The druid managed to land a hit, and scored two points of damage.

The wood golem MISSED!

I love this kind of thing, yes, even as a GM!
