Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Instead of "After sneaking into the lair, you come to a door; you open it and …goblin warriors! Roll for initiative! Kill them all!" I would like to see "After sneaking into the lair, you come to a door; you open it and …there are goblin mothers with goblin babies! Everyone is screaming in terror at you, the murderhobos who have broken into their home! What do you do?"


There is a game all about this! (Sort of. Its satirical.)

Here is another trope-busting method that has always worked and will always work.

After the gamemaster concludes the ten minute soliloquy expounding on the wonders and manifest benefits of the trope, you say: "I stab it with my sword" and roll the dice.

I did something similar. The traveling heroes were attacked by robbers, fought back and quickly got the upper hand. The robbers ran away, but one stayed behind, sobbing over a loved one who was severely wounded. None of them looked well-nourished.

Most recently I've been messing with gods in D&D. My brother's character in my game is a dwarf paladin who has a homebrew god my brother came up with called the Voice. The Voice is me, so, I can tell him to do whatever in a given situation and I really love it (because, naturally, I'm CN aligned), though he also uses it to metagame in hilarious ways himself.


This is great!


If either of you are into webcomics, Forgath occasionally dips into this in Goblins. His deity is Herbert the DM.

That's really clever; I like it.

I myself have always wondered who builds secret lairs... I've contemplated doing an mini-campaign in which the PCs are FBI agents or similar and uncover the massive logistical footprint of a "secret" lair construction project.
