I just love how my players react to this EVERY time. Funny part is, the rogue hears this a LOT.
Yes, there's nothing like throwing out that line after a hard boss.
If you really want to watch the DM's gears turn, reply "sensually".
You go to the orc and press your massive greatsword against it and lean in, whispering softly into its ear with your hot breath and say
"I want my weapon in your throat" before forcing it into its mouth, down to the hilt.
Now excuse me, I need to go take a shower. I feel dirty.
I knocked a bad guy off a 200' cliff last session in what I'm pretty sure was my absolute best move I'll ever experience having in D&D, and I'm still a little salty that didn't kill him lol.
That's where rule of cool needs to come into play IMO.
The rouge in the campaign I’m running: I do a sick backflip and stab it in the Timberwolf’s head!
The others: *I dig my hands into the Changeling’s wound and tear it in half*
HDYWTDT’s is the greatest thing Matt Mercer ever gave us
No matter your opinions on Matt and CR are, I feel like everyone can appreciate the beauty of getting to describe a big kill in bloody and gruesome fashion. It’s so hype, and a perfect thing for dnd
Agreed. I used to shy away from using this in my groups, since people I've met have not cared too much for CR's influence and gave me shit for it. But it's just great, and seeing my players light up is what it's really about. We're all having a great time and it's always a big moment when I get to say it, so it stays at my table for sure
i kiss him gently
Actually, one of my players walked up to a lich and french kissed it, only to stab it violently in its throat afterwards.
We were all like "Yeah.. you... go girl..."
The exchange our Paladin had with the DM in our last session (fighting a dragon):
Paladin: Ok, so for my first attack I rolled a 25. Does that hit?
DM: Yes. Roll damage.
Paladin: That's 18 damage! And now for my second attack...
DM: How do you want to do this?
Paladin: And now for my second attack...
DM: Stop, stop, its already dead!
It's always hype when you hear those words, because it means you get to go buck wild on how you want to beat the enemy. Whether lethally or non lethally.
Me last session when I landed the killing blow on the dragon! Sneak attack, you are my only friend.
"I drive my Glaive through his torso, pinning him with his back on the ground. I then punch that yellow faced bastard's skull into mush.".
My DM asks this excessively. I did 3 damage to a swarm and got asked "how do you do this", since apparently I killed one of the rats in the swarm. It slows down combat to a crawl, and when everything is epic, nothing is.
You should only ask it for either the final kill in the encounter, or a major one like the big bad
That’s just something you should mention to your DM
Me: "I stab him through the chest with my glaive, lifting him up into the air before planting the glaive into the ground, I then use my fingers to gouge out their eyes before ripping their head apart"
Dm, horrified: "Uh... sure"
Nah that sounds fucking metal
I could never see myself running a game and NOT giving out the how do you want to do this. It’s so much fun for the whole table.
I can safely say I would never have expected to see a reference to Scottish football appear in a subreddit for dnd memes.
For me as a DM, they’re the best words to say as well.
I’m playing an echo knight, and my DM narrated, when he got his powers, that he could see past memories in his echo when it was summoned. So every time my DM asks this question, which is pretty often because I’m the DPS of the group, it’s always some horrifying image from my fighter’s past flickering through the echo before it slices them through.
Using Pathfinder smiting rules, I preceded my attack roll with a "YOU WILL BE PUNISHED IN THE NAME OF THE MOON!" because I'm playing a lunar divine hunter paladin. Every arrow I hit ended up hitting for +30 damage.
"Her crescent bow shone as if lit by a full moon, arrows shot gleaming like they were covered in moondust. They exploded as they hit the lich, who fell defeated, covered in silvery lunar glitter."
My favorite "chose how he dies" answer was "I hit his toe and he died of blood loss"
mah mercer effect oh noooo
