In the spirit of “expanding the conversation” and all those fun marketing terms, today’s question is:
What is your most memorable encounter in any RPG?
For me, it could be that time when our party was out to recover some sort of orb, which was guarded by a mindflayer, which was way beyond our characters to handle. But then Bryan’s character (name forgotten, sorry bryan!) managed to kick the mindflayer out the window… sending him falling to a much simpler death. Phew!
Or it could be that time when the party was out to rescue the wife of my character, Obre, from a big ol’ fortress. The climactic scene involved Obre teleporting from room to room to escape Lord Krugdhaxal who was trying to steal some knowledge from Obre’s brain, while the rest of the party battled guards in the underground prison that was, incentally, protected by rows and rows of towers casting magic missile every turn. Eventually we figured out that there were amulets being worn by the guards that protected from the towers, and we all managed to regroup and Obre teleported everyone away from the fortress, one by one, before an entire army of guards overwhelmed us all.
