Narrated D&D Story: The Player Who Managed To Outsmart The Dungeon Master And The Entire Party

The Player Who Managed To Outsmart The Dungeon Master And The Entire Party
u/MuffledPhosphor on /rpghorrorstories says:
In our gaming group we continued this general
attitude of weeding out the weaklings. If
you were creating a character and said, “Hey,
can you pass the Pla–“, that’s as far as
you got because the Player’s Handbook was
already in the air coming straight for your
head. If you got hit then you got laughed
at. We did lots of things like that. We were
a very unforgiving group. On the plus side,
things like these kept everyone very focused.
We never had to wait around for people to
make up their mind about what their PC was
doing since everyone was formulating their
plan of action while the DM did his thing
with everyone else.
Now, with everyone having their own agenda
and whatnot, we devised a system of passing
notes to the GM for performing actions which
we were keeping secret from the rest of the
players. Mostly this was mundane things like
robbing random houses in town at night, picking
the pocket of an NPC, popping off to the outfitter
to stock up on arrows, or off to the temple
to load up on healing potions. So notes were
being passed constantly and we kept our private
affairs private, unless your note when awry
and someone else saw it. We didn’t roll dice
to see if other players “noticed” your behavior.
It was simple. “Bob the Barbarian wanders
off. Cedric the Cleric, you’re shagging the
barmaid? Great. Roll a save vs. poison or
get the clap.” And so on.
Another thing that we did, which will become
important later, was that if your character
died the rest of us looted the body and then
we burned your character sheet. Temples didn’t
raise the dead for a modest fee. If the party
didn’t have Resurrection or Raise Dead, your
body would rot where it dropped. That’s just
how we rolled.
In this campaign we had one new player, the
DM’s cousin and the rest of us were regulars.
Altogether there were six of us in our party
playing our tried and true characters. Mine
was the now infamous Roghan the Red, a human
fighter/assassin although nobody knew he was
an assassin. Or that’s how I liked to play
it, anyway. I always thought it was silly
that “assassins” ran around looking like assassins.
That kind of defeated the purpose of being
stealthy and what not. And given the way the
game mechanics worked, I found that trying
to murder people with 1d4 dmg was ludicrous,
so I tended to use a bastard sword. It was
For this gaming session we were starting that
most legendary of modules, the one that every
playing group ran once they got high enough
in level: (S3) The Expedition to the Barrier
Peaks. Everybody liked the idea of having
grenades, power armor, and blaster pistols.
I mean, why not, right?
The backdrop was the default intro. King Genericus
or whatever his name was calls out for brave
mercenaries adventurers to find out where
all the weird monsters are coming from that
are eating his taxpayer base. We were the
motley crew which showed up. That explained
why most of us didn’t know each other.
So it begins.
The DM decided that this module was for a
much larger group, so he let everyone else
make a second character rather than have him
run a bunch of redshirts. I say “everyone
else”, because he had something against my
character in general and me in particular,
I came to discover. Plus I was a fifth level
fighter and tenth level assassin, so he figured
I didn’t need another char since I was already
“level 15”.
Everyone else was Good™. LG unless contraindicated
by class restrictions, like the druid or thief
(Rogue wasn’t a thing yet). But since I was
an assassin, I was NE. I played the char as
pretty much pure neutral aside from the whole
“murder for hire” thing, but I never saw that
as any different from what PCs did all the
time anyway. But I digress.
The very first thing out of the DM’s mouth
when we all sat down was to tell his cousin’s
paladin “He’s Evil!” while pointing at me.
Needless to say, I was a bit put out about
this. I’m not one for rules lawyering, but
we’d all pretty much understood that things
like the paladin’s detect evil ability were
conscious effects (*meaning you had to specifically
tell the DM you were using it for it to work),
and that it really only worked when the target
actually had evil intent. Since the new precedent
was that he detected my PC’s general evilness
I realized very quickly that this would completely
overshadow specific instances of evil intent
in the future. This was where he screwed the
pooch. If he hadn’t done this, then the ending
would have been completely different and he
had no one to blame but himself.
Immediately this put everyone else, who each
had two characters at level 10, against me
for no other reason than my alignment. Never
mind the fact that I’d played with the rest
of them for a couple years and we got along
fine. They knew which side their bread was
buttered on, though, and since the DM and
his cousin had their eye on me, it would serve
the rest of them right to keep an eye on my
PC as well. To his credit, however, the DM
neglected to actually inform anyone that my
primary class was assassin. I was, after all,
a hulking brute with an 18/83 strength wearing
plate mail and carrying a Sword of Sharpness,
so my ability to do assassin things was entirely
outside of their notice.
Right from the start they had me on point,
but that didn’t bother me much. We got to
the crashed spaceship, got inside the top
level, and started to explore. There were
a few fights where they made me tank and didn’t
bother helping me with healing. They saved
their spells and made me use up some of my
healing potions. We were poisoned by gas at
one point during which I discovered that one
of the other player’s throwaway characters
had a +1 Periapt of Proof Against Poisons.
I didn’t steal it right away, but I made a
note of that for later. Shortly thereafter
we found one of the keycards that allowed
us access to the elevator. The DM wasn’t at
all clear about describing things, so when
he had everyone open a door with the keycard
and all pile in, I was just happy I wasn’t
on point anymore. Then the doors close and
the rest of the party is hell and gone, leaving
me all alone with no way to rejoin them.
During the course of the next hour or so,
the rest of the party explores several rooms
while I’m left to my own devices. I got into
fights with three random encounters while
the main party didn’t. I survived. Go me.
During my exploration I found a grey keycard,
however, so I’m happy I can rejoin the party.
But I don’t. Instead I try and loot other
rooms where I’m at and that’s when the DM
makes his fatal mistake.
While I was rummaging through what I presumed
to be an alchemist’s lab, I discover a wonderful
powder which grants infravision, a few mild
poisons, some jars of strong acid, and then
the mother of all poisons. It is very important
to point out at this juncture that the stats
of the poison I found were a munchkiny attempt
to permanently take me out. The DM ruled that
the sweet smelling green powder which I subsequently
tasted was a very powerful nerve agent. He
informed me that because I tasted it I had
to make a save vs. poison at a -10. I rolled
a 20 and was very gleeful, then he rolls again
and informs me I have 3 HP left. Yes. You
heard that correct. This poison is so toxic
that if you make your save you only have 1d4
HP left.
So I’m pretty pissed off at this point, but
I have a ton of this poison so I put it away
for a rainy day, drink the last of my healing
potions, and try and survive until the end
of this module. I really wasn’t paying attention
after this point. Pleading self preservation
due to low HP (which nobody heals, thanks
guys), I offer fire support with my bow and
avoid melee the rest of the game. We played
every day after school for a week to finish
this beast of a module. There was a lot to
it. The Paladin got his power armor. The other
fighter got his blaster rifle and grenades.
And they tried to give me the shaft. And on
the way home I pick one fellow’s pocket of
one item, which I replace with an nearly identical
appearing item. Because I swap a gemstone
for valuable gemstone, the DM doesn’t put
up too much of a fuss when I pilfer the cleric’s
At the very end we were at an inn licking
our wounds and splitting up the treasure.
This is where the DM got too clever for his
own good.
Being a somewhat realistic minded bunch, it
was standard practice not to wear armor or
carry heavy weapons in towns. The DM made
a point to bring this to everyone’s awareness.
For the after-party nobody was armed with
anything more dangerous than a dagger and
nobody had any armor. Except maybe the mages
with their magical bracers and wizard robes,
but that barely counts as armor.
I ask very quickly if there is time for me
to buy wine for the party. I had to spend
500gp on a cask of wine enough for all of
us (more punishment for being Evil™, I suppose).
I then hand the wine over to the innkeeper’s
wife and pay her extra not to drink it when
she pours it into jugs and serves it to the
party. Yes. I did that.
So we all write quick notes about what we
are bringing to the party. I pass a note to
the DM about checking the other players but
there are no surprises. Nobody brings any
serious weapons since there are weapons in
the loot on the table anyway, and the last
thing anybody is expecting is a fight. I write
my note and pass it to him and I made a note
on the back which I will point out later.
I had three daggers, all magical, my +2 Ring
of Protection, and my newly pilfered Periapt.
The DM’s cousin’s other character, the same
cleric I lifted the periapt off of, arrives
late with a bag of holding and adds its contents
to the pile of treasures we’re all going to
pick from. I immediately recognize my sword
of sharpness, my +3 Plate Mail, my bow and
magic arrows, and all my other valuables which
I had left up in my room. The DM reasoned
that since I steal from the other players
that it’s only fair they get to go through
my stuff and take whatever they want. Since
I’m outnumbered and outgunned by a dozen level
15+ wizards, clerics, rangers, bards, and
druids, I really don’t have much choice in
the matter.
Me being me, I make an attempt to point out
the unfairness, but the DM overrules me. Not
unexpected, I suppose at this point. He pushes
on with the party and they plan to drink the
wine I bought while they split up all my money
and things between themselves and have a good
So they toast on it, and we all drink. A few
of the players were a little leery since it
was my wine, but when they see me drink they
all drink as well. I was counting on that.
That is, after all, the purpose of a toast,
to slosh the wine between all the cups so
everyone drinks the same thing.
And I stop everyone at that point and announce
to the entire group, “Everyone make a save
against poison at -10.”
There was a moment of intense consternation,
then the DM reads the back of the note I gave
him earlier and realizes wtf I just did to
everyone. Or, rather, what he did to everyone.
With that nerve toxin in the wine, everybody
needs a very high saving throw just to survive
with 1d4 HP. The Paladin died. His cleric
died. The ranger died. The druid died. The
bard, died (I hate bards, so Yay!), everyone
died. The only ones who made their roll were
the thief and one of the wizards. Everyone
else died instantly.
Then it was my turn to roll a save. The DM
looked pretty smug since he was sure I couldn’t
get another natural twenty. But I didn’t need
to. I had the Periapt, so I only needed to
make a regular save with no negative modifier.
I think I rolled an 11 of something stupid.
Passed easily. He gave me 1 HP left just to
be a dick, I suppose. Before anyone else realized
they needed to do anything, I threw a poisoned
dagger at the wizard and jumped the thief.
Wizard died. Thief died. And that was that.
It turns out it actually is easy to kill people
with a dagger when they only have 4 HP. I
think my STR bonus damage was higher than
their hit points. They never had a chance.
I wish at the time that I knew the phrase
“hoist on his own petard”, because it would
have been fitting. He never expected me to
do anything like that with something he had
made up just to get me.
I wasn’t just a good assassin. I was a great
He never gave me my experience points for
killing all those high level monsters, either.
But I did burn their character sheets. That
point was non-negotiable. They didn’t like
it, but that was how we rolled.
I hope you guys enjoyed the story. I personally
do not like Dungeon Masters who make the party
aware of player’s alignment because he does
not like it. They need to man up and state
it upfront. That’s how you get back at a jerk
DM and party.
We take our leave and promise to come back
with more amazing Dungeons and Dragons content.

    This just sounds like a toxic environment for everyone. If only because of the DM. Like, hardcore shit can be done fine. But adding a prick as a DM just makes it a shitty, hostile time

  • September 23, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    Holy cow. I was expecting a “paladin being overly suspicious of the evil dude” revenge story, but I quickly hated everyone BUT the rogue. How does that work?

    After playing D&D for 11 years I have to say this is the saddest display of pettiness I have ever seen, that goes for everyone in the story the exception being the author.

  • September 27, 2019 at 3:55 am

    Wow. What a complete asshole party and DM.

  • September 27, 2019 at 8:22 am

    Why would anyone bother playing with a DM or group that shitty

    Me: Why would a group of friends be so insecure and horrible to each other? Do they even understand the point of D&D?
    Narrator: "We played every day after school."
    Me: Oh, duh, high schoolers.

  • September 27, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    This story sounds really made up, cause i've been in a party who hates my characters periodically, cause i'm a wizard player and:
    -A) my party hates magic for no real reason;
    -B) my DM hates magic to its core, in fact he never even considered to learn how it works(and blamed me for using broken spells, like scry) and used homemade spells, or more correctly, spells created at the moment, giving his npcs really powerful powers. Also everytime i tried to search for magic books, he never let me get one, and i searched in capitals, strongholds, dungeons, but while my party members got money and equip, i did get nothing. And for the records, i even got a 32 on my perception skill check to search for a magic book in the capital library, the biggest library in our campaign setting, and no magic book was found. He literally said: there's no magic book here. I was quite frustrated for his actions, just like when he complained with me for using scry on an unknown npc. Well, he complained about everything that spell is, and prohibited me to use it or switch it for another spell, literally making one of my two spells per level useless and trash.

  • September 27, 2019 at 11:45 pm

    Sounds like the group and this player were dicks…

  • September 28, 2019 at 11:01 am

    …I'm still not clear as to how it was the DM did this to himself? Also, I would have just barred that guy from playing that character in the first place. This is just the kind of story that really turns me off multiplayer games in general.

  • September 28, 2019 at 11:05 am

    That's how you get back at a jerk DM and party
    …I mean, it sounds like everyone was a jerk in this story, it's what makes is so boring.

  • September 28, 2019 at 11:59 am

    I would've burnt the sheets in a small bowl and used it to warm up my hands, then put out the fire, clean the bowl, and leave.

  • September 28, 2019 at 4:08 pm

    Wow…and I thought my group was a group of dickheads because when our party went to a brodel they took advantage of me going to the bathroom to traumatize my pet velociraptor by having my PC go have sex with a half orc and yelling his name during the act. I'm the party's healer, let's see who heals them now. Asshoels

  • September 28, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    So… As I understand it:
    He's a douchebag in a group of douches, acting like douches until he kills all the other douches' characters because his douche DM more or less changed his interpretation of the Paladin's ability…?

    And after killing his own party, he thinks he's the hero that beat the DM….?

    Must be nice to be a 14 year old edgelord of a kid who's "secretly an assassin", stealing from his own group, killing his own friends, derailing everything and then ending the entire campaign on the worst note, and then still somehow feel good about himself.
    The only thing he'd have to mention would be attempted rape on NPC's and he'd have hit every single "Get the fuck out of my mom's basement!"-Red Flags there is in D&D.

  • September 30, 2019 at 6:44 am

    So being evil is not even that bad in D&D there could be villains in a party to do good as a way to right their wrongs and the good guy is there just to make sure they do nothing to bad. Because a lot play a grey to a dark all ready only some play pure good.

  • September 30, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    It’s weird when you hear the same story on multiple channels but in different voices

  • October 1, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    So you killed your entire team, because you didn’t get heals?
    DnD is about having fun, team building, and overcoming obstacles.
    So I bet you weren’t able to play with them again? Or the dm?
    Do you think the other players had fun that game?

  • October 1, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    Neckbeard got revenge against other Neckbeards, the only way anybody could possibly win this is if they were all forced to only play with each other from now on so the rest of us don't have to put up with their elitist bullshit

    I mean… that is like a teacher who hates you because of reasons. Honestly, that DM had that coming and it is nice that you were able to pull that off. But I am sure he made your character die shortly after this because… well… that DM hates you.

    I don't understand the point of DnD if it's not fun. Why would you even play if people in the group were being jerks?

    That doesn’t seem any fun

    You were all evil IRL, actually. The kinds of people you never talk to if you can help it.

    One of my friends was new to DMing, and I made a rogue who has the habit of stealing and wishes to become a merchant with tragic back story if coarse. I missed the first two sections and I gave some ideas of how my character could be added it. Such as running from a a resent shop lifting or something that makes sense. Yeah no, I was added in after being a pussy because I couldn’t defeat a week ass dragon. The party also noticed this strange entry after they convince the dragon to just live. It was like a two sentence argument and no roll was needed. Non of us had the heart to tell her that she couldn’t dm. I wasn’t aloud to steal or play out my character the way she was made. Her alinement went from chaotic good to just evil. I feel I wasted a character,

    So I played a campaign for a few months run by my Brother. Started off alright, I was playing something new to me to try out, but he eventually died because the group were all new and were unaware that they weren't invincible. (I protected one of the players that was close to going down, and died for it. Level 6 Warlock, mostly full hp, taken down in one hit. Okay then, thats fine, shit happens.

    Fast forward to my next character, Drow Rogue/Paladin. Twisted sense of Laws and justice, meant to help the players learn about being more than just murder hobos, and also teach them to form proper plans. This is where I start realising there might be more bias towards me than I thought.

    The players were fine, the Bard (the guy I protected) was nice to me and stuff, usually had my back on a lot of things. My Brother however, he seemed to have something against Rogues, accused me of minmaxing (I wasn't even close to minmaxing yet, if I continued to play I would've minmaxed the fuck out of the next character), and decided one of the PHB (5e) features was op and tried to take it away (Sneak attack).

    Forget that the barbarian did my highest damage twice in one around, forget that he took half as much damage and had twice my hitpoints, no sneak attack (2d6) was too much for me to have. So I had to justify having sneak attack. I had to explain several times that I'm following a reasonable sense of Law. (Character wanted to take something from a merchant, I found out, I tried to stop him. Party turns against me, including the merchant group). After dealing with THAT mess, I try and help a guard (I'm LN, but I'm chasing a group of blatantly CE cultists), the guard arrests me and refuses to let me go despite confirming the identities of assassins. Of the Cultists. Okay.

    Combat encounter, group of Kenkus (Bird people). They don't have pack tactics, and my brother removed flanking from the mechanics. He then proceeds to give the four of them advantage against me, because I'm surrounded. Cool. Just kill him then. All four roll above 20 (AC was 20), and do 40 damage (my hp). Their modifier was around +3. That means all four rolled at least 17 or higher. Maybe I was unlucky, maybe he fudged the rolls, because he said all of them hit, who knows. Fine, I manage to live somehow, but my brother continues to think that I'm too op.

    One last thing I noticed, everyone in the party was getting awesome equipment tailored to them. Magic swords, magic armour, rings, a Gryphon Mount, while I was sitting there like "It's cool, I'll stick with my regular shortsword, and my regular studded leather armour". And for those not familiar with 5e, investigation is often the skill used to find loot which is Int based and something I took as a skill BECAUSE most of the others didn't think of int as important. The characters with negative intelligence refused to let me look, and would then take all the loot they DID find instead of sharing. So there's that problem.

    Screwed over by the DM on many occasions, such as tailored loot, encounters, and abilities (tried to remove my abilities).
    Screwed over by players, such as not loot sharing, being murder hobos, being no better than bandits.

    They were also Neutral/Good characters. Not one of them was evil.

    Shouldn't have cucked you over, if you wanna kill a member of the party kill the whole bunch
