I just want to say, last game session, I planar wild-shaped into a Celestial Allosaurus buffed with StrongJaw. Hitting as colossal with smite evil up was... glorious.

:D


Last session, I tripped the lead cultist while he was flanked by the fighter and rogue.

Glorious.

Last session my 3rd level witch found a bag with a dire rat in it and gave it to the unaware party cleric as a gift.

Glorious.

I had one session where I was playing a bard who had a rival way back when they were younger who beat him up and stole of my bard's songs. Years later the rival had become famous playing my bards songs, so during an extremely large and important concert I knocked him out (with my fist!) and ended up replacing him and got to play my very own songs showing off my own band which had an illusionist to work the lights...

and it was glorious


I had a game session in which, even with negs, my halfling cleric stole the underwear of an armed guard with hands tied and a bag over her head.
AND IT WAS GLORIOUS!

Wasn't that from "This is Spinal Tap?"

2 sessions ago i grappled a player drug him up a 50 foot pole then dropped him on his head killing him.

it was glorious!

Last session (and the one before), the PCs rode into battle on a gigantic beetle they had buffed with barkskin and mage armor. The besieging army could barely affect the thing with those defenses up and it made mincemeat of their opposition that I, as the DM, ran as realistically as I could but to no avail.

And it was glorious.


This thread.

GLORIOUS!

Just having that celestial allosaurus tear a Daughter of Urgathoa to shreds in one round was glorious. If ever an undead experienced fear, it was then.


I entered that stage with only petty revenge in mind, I left that stage as a legend.

Last session my barbarian broke free of a floor turned to mud then stone again pluss force shackles around my feet, and almost single handedly killed an improved invisible spellcasting giant despite miss chanse while the rest of the party was stuck, disabled, dead or dying.

...and it was glorious.


Last session I approved two new brothels and a garrison. Oh yeah and we build a new castle. And we built more roads and farms. Yay. Isn't Kingmaker glorious?


In a fallen future RPG (sorry not Pathfinder. DON'T KILL ME PLEASE!), I once played a doctor who had to try to heal a character who had recently taken a grenade to the chest (!!). It just so happened that I double criticled my roll (no joke)...
...not only did he somehow miraculously survive having his chest explode and all his organs in pieces, but I patched him up and he was back and fighting within minutes.
...with no scars either.
...and it was glorious.


Another member of our party cast Glitter Dust at the invisible creature, I was caught in the area and failed my save. The big bad invisible thing nearly 1 rounded me.

Umm, and it was deadly?


My player's all bought opium for their characters then fought a giant crocodile skeleton inside a giant mushroom.

And it was glorious.


This one time, I played a halfling elemental (air) sorcerer who bluff/diplomacy/forgery'd his way into inheriting a kingdom from a dying king. Then, with the experience I gained from doing so, I leveled and bought the leadership feat, building a half-elf bard who was *almost* as crafty as I was for my cohort. I then tapped into a little of the royal treasury to ensure this bard's loyalty for life (bard was expecting, like, 20 gold for services rendered... I gave him 3,000) and sent him on a quest throughout the kingdom to spread the glory of my name, and to talk badly about the captain of the guard, who thought he was next in line to become king and was trying to stir trouble and challenge my legitimacy...

And it was glorious!


In a Champions game (don't kill me!) I played a brick with a high presence. One evening on a secluded beach, while he was lost in thought, his ex-girlfriend (a member of our super team) came along and was being her usual provocative-but-coy self so he made a presence attack and told her to "Get naked!" and rolled so high on his presence attack that she very well would have if not for the comic book code we enforce. We all rolled on the floor laughing.

It was glorious.


When we were on the verge of a TPK at the hands of a colossal dire crocodile, when our ranger cast charm animal and it failed its DC12 will save. My alchemist buffed it and healed it with infusions and we sent it into our enemy camp.

And it was glorious.


Session before last in a CC game...

CC Spoiler:
Our group was fighting Gibs and we didn't quite know what we were up against. He had picked up the war razor. My bard successfully cast daze on him in an attempt to have the rest of the party knock the weapon out of his hand. That didn't work. They all missed. *sigh* So next round I cast grease on the weapon and he dropped it. After that we were able to take him out with nonlethal damage very effectively.

And it was glorious.


One session I thought we were going to have to kill an Avatar of Lolth. When there was no one between her and I, I said "Screw it", switched my judgements, and charged.

63 points of damage after adding the crit up and subtracting her DR.

Glorious.


On Fading Suns session, when the invading enemy fleet was closing to the planet we were on, I convinced the current owner of the planet to sell it to representative of another faction that was neutral. Due to political reasons enemy had no interest in starting the war with the buyers, yet. And I managed to get some decent lands on the planet and some contracts as a fee for organizing the transaction.

And it was glorious.

I just had a tasty jacket potato filled with butter, cheese, onion and garlic.

And it was glorious.


last session the 5 lvl party was fighting a flesh golem, the cavalier/ bard used his tactician ability to share a feat with the magus and the elf ranger also flanking the golem, 7 attacks of opportunity (mostly crits)after, only on the cavalier´s turn, the golem was history

and it was glorious!!


The party was captured and gearless, someone broke apart the crippled wizards wheelchair for clubs, and then the fighter used said wizard as a meat shield.

And it was despicable?


Last session I gave a rousing speech and defied an avatar of Zon-Kuthon, then critted my save vs its contagion attack. Party proceeded to destroy it.

And it was glorious.

Silver Crusade

Last session my rogue was so awesome that he stole the king's socks from his feet while he was still wearing his shoes.

And it was glorious.

In our last session our GM pitted our 7th-level party against a CR 14 BBEG.

When the rest of the party tried and failed to vanquish him with excellent team tactics and a half dozen buffs, my summoner called forth a swarm of lantern archons and took the bastard out.

It was glorious.

Yesterday's session I ran down a burning roof and hurled myself into the air 70 feet above the ground against a greater cyclops. I grabbed his horn as I flew by, swirled around his head and landed with my feet squarely on his shoulders, holding my pistol to his head I fired a single shot - BOOM! The brute had a thick skull, so it took another shot before he slowly fell over. As he neared the ground I leapt from his shoulders and landed gracefully besides him as his corpse hit the ground.

And it was Glorious!

Last session, we were attempting to recover a phylactery from a palace tower. We ended up cornered outside the vault, grappled by black tentacles, and facing imminent death. Our fighter had nearly been slain and made her massive damage death save by 1. I managed to use good ol' Lvl 1 liberating command as an immediate action to break my grapple, move to the Urgathoaan evil cleric, and stone shape the floor beneath her. She and her wizard companion proceeded to fall through the floor in the tower we were in. Our rogue pick-pocketed a scroll of teleport from the lich in the room, passed it to our wizard who then transported our team (minus me) and the lich (with phylactery in hand) to a church of Iomede where they dealt with him swiftly upon arriving. I then wildhsaped into an air elemental and broke through the window and flew to them with great haste using tree stride through the forest. Our daring escape was...

GLORIOUS!


Last night, my 'combat support' rogue jumped out and scared a ridiculously tough guard, making him stumble backwards into a square threatened by a viscious F-Rogue, and a Ronin Sword Saint with Iajutsu ready.

It was glorious.

Or as I like to say, Magnificent.


In one session I ran, a players Knight was on his last legs, 2hp remaining, in a climatic struggle saving a frontier town frame raiders. It was raining, the town was in flames, and he was routing the orcs. It happened that due to the chaos of battle, he ended up in the path of an ogre on its way out of Dodge. He decided that he couldn't out run the ogre so he made a valiant last stand and charged, and crit at Max damage for the win.

Glorious.


Today, two of my players, a level 5 paladin and a 1/rogue-4/cleric went back to back and slaughtered 20 orcs.

On the 7th or so round of combat the gunslinger finished off the dire tiger and help blast away the mob.

Glorious

Same game, the gunslinger would have been reached by the tiger but the monk blocked it for a round, buying him the time he needed.


Last session my new magus got a critical hit on a rival with a spellstriking Vampiric Touch on a bastard sword, dropping him from full hp to stone dead with one blow, ripping his spirit out and devouring it. It was glorious!


I called upon the holy grace of the great Goddess Sheyln to imbue our party tank with luck and it changed a botch to a critical hit, killing the enemy that had been giving us so much trouble.

And it was glorious.

CoCT Spoiler:
My 13th-level bard, aka Blackjack, soloed the CR 15 Trifaccia. I showed up to the Sczarni fight invisible, took a couple rounds to buff, and when Trifaccia showed up and challenged the paladin, I appeared from invis and took up the challenge. I opened with shocking image, which bought me enough time to read a scroll of dance of a thousand cuts. Then I proceeded to dismantle him. And it was glorious.
