Had a game where we were in a fight with a black dragon, and the rogue managed to drop on it as it flew by, made strength, acrobatics and grapple checks round after round while stabbing it to death, as we shot at it and threw spells at it. She rode it to the ground as it died, and made another acrobatics check to survive the fall and reduce damage.

The TIE Defender is now canon (again). I can die happy.
It could have gotten there, though, easily, and had with that player in other games. I realize not all players of this type do not wish to contribute to a group effort, but in her case she truly does. Treating her ideas as a puzzle to be solved rather than just a problem to be handled ended up making the game memorable and enjoyable for all the right reasons :P
That was one of the things they'd say to tease her character :)
I GM'd a game in theme similar to we be goblins, except i asked everyone to roll a kobold character. One player, who is known for having a flair for the creative, insisted that her kobold believed it was a minotaur. As the game went on, the other characters (not the players) teased her kobold barbarian about being crazy, because of those beliefs. She played it to the T. She bought a helmet with cow horns on it, and would charge people as part of her raging. She had appropriate rage powers She took the crazy talk, with "one day you'll see!" and really played into the concept. So, I wrote up a PrC for her to take to actually turn into a minotaur while raging (not all at once, it scaled up to a large minotaur by 10th level). I presented it to her, and she accepted it.
I play an inquisitor of Osiris in Mummy's Mask, and just used this spell for the first time, against a cultist. He was interrogating him and he got all smug, which irritated my character...
Funny thing...he took max damage and almost died from it...

I have noticed that a lot of 'native' species here on Agartha seem to have the ability. It's a marvel, really, from a scientific standpoint. Though I imagine magic has far more to do with it than any evolutionary need for it. Or possibly a combination of the two..."
My favorite character of all time was played in a one-on-one format for most of the almost 20 years I got to play him. He was an anti-hero from day one, and those types of characters are still a favorite to play to this day.
I guess the "embarrassment" factor comes from my favorite character not being from a game with other players, in a game that's intended to be at least four people plus DM.
Your example of courage is inspiring. Good luck, and have fun!

Krays' anger melts as he walks forward, and places his had on his master's shoulder, giving him a look of sympathy."Master...I'm sorry for my pointedness. Things are never simple, or straight forward in my service to you. I did not intend to cause you discomfort. I worry not just for the lives of my family and friends, but I worry for your existence as well. I will not ask you to betray any confidences, even if it's to my wife's former master. Please, Master. Tell us what you can. Help us help you, and help me champion your power."
Ephebe will realize over her bond, that Krays does not see Death as just his Master, but as a father-figure or other deeply admired and respected family member. It may be hard for any other creature, but for Krays, he simply loves Death, like Ephebe loves Ryleh. This is where his zealotry comes from, his fire when dealing with those that abuse the powers of death, or attempt to harm his loved ones.
Heh. Sympathy for a giant robed skeleton...
