Last real D&D session (Thursday two weeks ago) ended with us uncovering a Djiin in a bottle, everyone gets one wish. Last attempted session we started making our wishes. Sort-of…
Nobody wanted to make a wish after our dwarf rogue went (first). The Greedy Little Bastard™ wished his necklace to be enchanted to increase his Move Silently, Hide, Crit, and Charisma. Which he got. At the cost of all his hair. While wearing the necklace he’s completely bald and his hair won’t grow back. When he takes it off, it starts growing normally.
Well… nobody else wanted to risk something embarrassingly stupid happening to them, but everyone has to make a wish (So said the DM). We ended the session with the decision that we’d put our character’s wishes on our facebook group and the DM would dish them out accordingly.
So far my two are the only two to have wished for anything:
My monk was originally going to pass on his wish. He’s a monk, he’s perfectly fine with what he has (which is literally the clothes on his back, an Amulet of True Sight, and a quarter staff). But the DM stated we had to make one, and later he suggested I wish for…
- The ability to grow an extra set of fully-functional human arms at will from an appropriate part of his body.
His fighting style/strategy is to get buffed by the cleric (+4 strength, then a size increase) after which he grapples the fuck out of everything (Upwards +12 to grapple, I think, the sheet isn’t near me, but it’s crazy good).
Not only could I grapple my foes like a boss, but I’d also get an extra attack per round (So suggested the DM when he was pitching the extra arms idea to me).
Of course, to avoid having arms grow out my ass or small halfling arms (or epic but unwanted bear arms) I included stipulations regarding the form, functionality and general location of the arms (And the fact I can grow them at will as, probably, a full round action/whatever it is to draw a weapon). Hopefully the DM was truthful in that he trolled the dwarf because of his overbearing greediness.
My cleric actually had a wish planned. He’s a battle-cleric (Healing and Strength domains). He focuses primarily on damage/tanking, and buffing allies (my monk primarily). But he’s always right there in the middle of the fray. The general idea of his wish is
- For a greater understanding of his deity’s (Pelor) divine powers.
Initially it was intended to be access to both domain spells rather than one per spell level. But then I thought I’d go for something different. Being a cleric I already have the ability to lose prepared spells to cast healing spells in their place, but I’m often using up the spells before the chance arises. Instead I asked for a sort of third spell list, made up of only healing spells of a selected level, that doesn’t count towards my spells per day. It frees me up to not select healing spells as prepared spells, giving me a little more flexibility with my spell lists.
(To make better sense of the above paragraph… Healing spells equal to spells-per-day of one level, that is not counted against my spells per day. Meaning if I cast 6 1st level spells, I can also cast 6 1st Level Healing spells without it counting against spells per day.)
