So, today is going to be quick since I'm a bit busier at work than normal which is where I usually get the chance to write these. Also, today I want this to be about you guys more than me. So fresh off of yesterday's topic on "wasting" your combat round, I want to ask you guys to share the stories of your favorite combat experiences you've ever had in game.
It doesn't matter if you were the GM, the Player, or just an observer that got to control an NPC. Lets hear the stories!
For me, I have two.
The first I mentioned yesterday, playing my rich boy ship captain William Hydesmythe III. The ship was under attack and no less than 3 people were all trying to take William down as the crew defended the ship. Faced with three opponents (and needing to look good) William just couldn't figure out how to deal with all three people at once so...he took a step back, lowered his sword tip to the ground and brought his other hand to his chin going. "Hold up a second, I need to figure out how I want to kill you three." Two rounds later, all three were dead and William didn't have a scratch on him. Everyone was really amused by that action too which was awesome.
The second is from a Dark Heresy game I am in. The three PCs (there are 4 of us, but one is rarely at table due to having to run the store) are a Psyker named Atellus, an Arbiter named Saris, and a Scum named Derrick (my character). In a fight with 18 special operations mercenaries instead of tactics we all just waltzed in. The highlights being Saris simply standing there, bouncing shots off his armor/toughness bonus while slowly killing people, which quickly became a Crowning Moment of Awesome when someone tried to unload a shotgun into his back. Saris looked over his shoulder and said "No!" the GM rolled 100 and the gun jammed.
The other highlight of the fight was the Psyker grinning at a man as he slowly reloaded his meat hammer (triple barrel shotgun). 2 rounds of loading later, someone else gets shot, the Psyker resumes to grin at a man frozen in fear and begins to slowly load shells in again.
So what about you? What are your favorite moments gaming has given you over the combat table?
