I almost got my whole group killed because I convinced them to buy hundreds and hundreds of house centipedes to let loose as a trap for a convoy we where supposed to ambush. The guy we bought all those centipedes from sure was happy.

On the other hand, my gnome prankster bard received a lot of askance gazes from the rest of the party when he explained that he always traveled with a chicken.

Then, he helped save the party by bargaining their lives for the chicken.

Eh, that's what a trigger finger gets you. If it had been a combat situation, the GM would have made clear they had a surprise round. Sure, the players were on edge, but blowing stuff up without reasonable cause or further inspection is just dumb.
Positive target identification is important.

Imagining the guest lecturer the following week at the Grand Lodge....

In running a Tier 1-2 table for a certain Special with a Really Big Dragon on the roof a building the PCs have to get into... the PCs are hiding around the corner of the building - peeking around and trying to get up the nerve to run across the courtyard to the buildings entrance.

Cleric to Rogue: "We need a distraction - something to draw the dragons attention away from the door before the rest of us run out there."

Rogue reply's: "Well... I have a chicken."

other players look at Rogue player: "????"

Rogue: "yeah, I picked one up - it's on my equipment sheet - see?"

Cleric to Rogue: "...and ... you're going to use it how?"

Rogue: "I'll throw it at the dragon. She wont be expecting that...."

Fighter: "...yeah, I sure wouldn't be expecting someone to pitch a chicken at me..."

Rogue: "yeah, I'll do that. So I run out here in the courtyard and throw the chicken..."

Overseer judge over loudspeakers announces that "the Really Big Dragon on the Roof" flies away. (totally unrelated to events at the Tier 1-2 table, but great timing!)

Table judge: "Seeing the chicken flying in her direction, the Dragon leaps from the roof and with a crash of her gigantic jaws, snatch's it from the air. Doing a Wing-Over maneuver and with a snap of her huge leathery wings, the giant beast speeds away over the cities rooftops..."

Rogue player sits back with big smile on her face.

Cleric player looks at the table judge, then the other players and says... "Heck, it looks like the dragon just wanted chicken take-out..."

So this was a while ago on my first character

The Mantis' Prey:
So when the medusa surrenders to the characters, my sorcerer cast Suggestion on it to reveal the Red Mantis' plan and for her to reveal herself.

Lo and behold, it was a medusa. I was immediately petrified.

Needless to say I haven't lived it down yet.

The Mantis' Prey:
We made the Knowledge check to know that the Mantis masks have magic properties, and we don't want them used on us. When we encountered that one, we made an Intimidate check to force her to take off the mask (of course not knowing what's underneath). She goes, "really? Sure, I don't mind..." and immediately petrifies a party member.

I mean, who puts a Medusa under a mask? I'm not sure if the author's brilliant or just mean-spirited.

The living grimoire archetype for an inquisitor is already hilarious enough, what with hitting enemies literally with the word of your god. It got better today during a fight when the instigator decided to try and make a run for it. My inquisitor ran after her, noticed he wasn't going to catch up, and decided to try and stop her...

...by throwing his book at her.

I promptly rolled a natural 20, confirmed the crit and knocked her out cold.

After which my inquisitor walked over to the unconscious enemy, picked up his book, dusted it off, and cast returning weapon on it just in case.

This character has now ended another encounter in exactly the same way. Sure, I bought him a bow, but throwing the book is just fun.

The party suspected the Pathfinder we were sent to rescue was being mind controlled after we met him and he insisted everything was fine. So of course my L10 paladin with +22 diplomacy steps forward.

"It's an honor to meet you sir! Let me shake your hand."

Activates wand of protection from evil.

The boss monster spends its first round killing 3/4 NPCs. One of whom was tied to back story, and another of whom was a faction recruitment possibility.

Our Lady of Silver. Just all of it. Played it once, GMed it twice (including last Wednesday), every time it's been one giant cluster*bleep*. Add to that the fact that some of my players were messing with each other. Luckily the fights were trivial and we blew through them, because we were goofing off a lot and had difficulty staying with the scenario. Not because it was boring, but because it lends itself so well to goofiness. The Paladin was wearing a Speedo to a wedding.

He bought a Speedo for the "afterparty." He wore it underneath his armour, but somewhere during the wedding he had to remove his armour to participate in a contest.

Venture-Captain: "We have a spy in this lodge, and I know who. (...) Whatever you do, don't let on his cover has been blown, because we're going to use him to get to his boss."
Player, upon meeting the spy, not two minutes later: "Hey, we know you're a spy, so quit it unless you have a death wish."

I'm not even paraphrasing. I quickly set him straight, otherwise the mission would have been over before it started, but still. He said it wasn't clear, but if you've played the scenario, you know I couldn't have been more clear. To be fair, he was busy rebuilding his character, but still.

Sometimes, these things can't be helped. I'm anticipating having similar issues this weekend at a convention, where I'm scheduled to play or GM five games on Saturday and Sunday. I'm scheduled for every session and won't have much break between sessions, because of how the schedule worked out. And I'll only have 9 hours between end of games Saturday and the start on Sunday, which will include half an hour of driving home each way. So I can easily see myself showing up to a table and having to level up a PC right before we start (especially Sunday morning at 8 AM because of which PCs will be getting the GM credits for Saturday's games).

If you don't mind a suggestion, the last time I was GMing at a convention and knew I'd be playing right afterwards and would have gained a level I prepared a character sheet with the new level and all the GM chronicles already assigned before I left just to avoid giving myself more stress.

Part of the problem is that I'll be mixing playing with GMing, and I don't know which PCs I'll be playing. So I may put the GM credit on a different PC if I already played the PC I want to level up, etc.

I am making plans in advance - for the one I know I want to level up, I already picked out my new feat, spell, etc that I'll gain from that level, so updating the character sheet should be pretty easy.

You don't have to use the new character sheet, if you end up applying credit to someone else. It's just there for if you need it. What's one or two more sheets of paper per PC, compared to the chronicles/ITS/cheat sheets/whatever else you already have?

In a certain slithery special scenario, I was playing the Brawler pregen that was provided. We encountered a Gunslinger. I disarmed his loaded musket and used Martial Flexibility to pick up proficiency, aiming it right back at him. It would be a better story if I hadn't missed with the shot! I did end up hitting him with the musket as an improvised weapon, so there's that.

That is more-or-less exactly what happened. I martial flexed into improved grapple to grab it, and then I was ready to (GM ruled it was not required) switch over to Catch off Guard.

The one that I know I want to level up with GM credits is easy enough to do.

I've only got two evenings left to finish prepping two scenarios I'll be GMing on Saturday, though that's mostly just map drawing, since I'm done reading them.

So I really don't have time to plan in advance for every possible other PC I might play and level up along the way. Especially since 4 of the PCs that I might play on Saturday are only 1 xp away from leveling up, and I won't decide which I'm playing until I see what everyone else brings.

Played that with my Saurian Shaman Halfling Druid. He spent the first encounter trying to calm the rampaging elephant.

Later, my GM and I got into a discussion whether or not a "Giant Frog" was a lizard and applicable for the Standard-speed SNA ability...
At that point, we were fighting a flying enemy and no one had any Fly spells/potions- and all my frog was trying to was grapple.

Oh, same adventure as my previous post:
Player wants to deliver a message to an important person, and flubs his Diplomacy check. He roleplays it well, so eventually I accept and comment, "Okay, well, no promises he'll see it, but I'll leave it with his secretary, Trudy." His eyes go wide and goes, "whoa, that's weird/funny. Our secretary at work is also called Trudy."

I dunno, I've used Trudy as a name for a personal assistant before. It really seems like a stereotypical name for a secretary you see in movies, but I'm glad it's at least somewhat grounded in reality.

I'm reminded of my chef who gets sent on missions just to make sure the party eats healthy while they're traveling. She's also a 300 year old elf who shares her breadth of experience with the party.

But mostly, she gets sent on missions because she's so annoying that Ambrus Valsin doesn't want her around. She just doesn't notice, because she intentionally doesn't roll sense motive checks when people flatter her (despite being very good at it - she is a skill monkey PC, after all).

And run into the waiting spear fighter. Then get taken from behind by the rest of the party.

Later, impersonating a boss, I roll a 1 on a will save and have to flee the dungeon. A boss is coming from behind is, ie, the way i'm running... disguised as his co worker.

Genuine terror "they're killing.. us.. all.. RUUUUUUUN!"
31 bluff.

The party chases a barbarian away. he catches up to us.

"Okay, we're not being paid enough for this. We should split up, I'm going to the safe house. "

32 bluff...

The Exchange

I was playing Gallows of Madness with my Kitsune sorcerer, Genji. I've never really believed that people who hop down deep pits and fight zombies could be the most mentally sound individuals that could function in normal society. So all my characters have certain... Quirks.

Genji's quirk is pyromania.

Some minor spoilers for Gallows of Madness:

Ally: We need that guy alive.
Genji (Kitsune Sorcerer): He tried to kill me. :(
Ally: The mission says we have to rescue him. He's being controlled
Genji: *After rolling emoticon dice* That ceased to be my problem after the second bomb he threw at me. Burning Hands.

For the record, after that attack (that rolled near max damage) the bomb thrower was 2 away from being dead.
