So I took the vengeance feat after making my character using the ultimate campaign character builder, after being kidnapped by slavers as a child.
We were level 3 when the Staglord attacked Olegs, the night after he said he would attack in 3 days and did fairly well in the battle. Auchs's head was blown off second turn when our musket master crit, Devon died in one hit when I crit with my orc Skull ram crit during a rage, Akiros surrendered after disarming his opponent, and knocking out the rogue sneaking up on him because he saw the others go down.
That's when the Staglord took the field, and my character recognized him as the slaver who had taken him as a child. He was the last one standing, so we all rushed him. My barbarian hit him first, and hard, but he laughed it off.
The Party hunter and his wolfhound got to attack him but didn't do much damage, and everybody else was still moving to position.
That's when her dropped what was in his hand.
It was a glass orb with a spell that created a duel. The Hunter and his companion were pushed out, leaving just me and the Staglord, and he stepped up and crit me, taking most of my health.
The Musket Master got in range and fired, but it bounced off the spell, and the Arcanist's magic missile couldn't get through, making it clear I was totally alone.
I dropped the orc skull ram (not enough room for a reach weapon in the dueling area) and pulled out this weird magic axe Bokken had given me. I wasn't sure what it did, but previously when I hit it made the wound look rotten and maggots appeared in the wound.
I hit and rolled minimum damage and said out of character "Welp, I'm about to die. "
Then the Staglord missed.
I attacked again 20, but no confirm, then he hit me.
And rolled minimum damage, leaving me at 3 hp.
I attacked, hit him and the DM asked for a luck check, which is very rare. I rolled well, and he told me I suddenly felt like I should say "Doom".
When I did the Staglord's wounds exploded.
I passed the reflex save, but with only 3 hp still went down, my rage stopped and I dropped to -11 hp, but Staglord went negative too.
The dueling spell fell, I was healed, and got to coup De grace the man who had enslaved me.
I've never really liked story feats before, but the dm suggested it when we were making the character. Honestly, it was probably the best night of gaming I've ever had and I just had to share it.
