Crazy PCs

Recommended Posts

Of late, my PCs have been getting very ... creative ... about solving problems. Often in wacky or odd ways. Post what your PCs did to get around a tough problem, and enjoy the fun!

We negotiated for some Jedi artifacts with a collector, and all we have to do is kill the local Imperial governor and his 6 lieutenants.   In 2 days.  We're on the enslaved Kashyyk in the Empire period.

 

We're getting around it by throwing a lavish party with a twist.  I'll let you know how it goes if we actually pull it off, but the GM was genuinely impressed by the idea and our plan to make it all happen.  We did happen to score a large pile of credits which will evaporate to pull this off, so I don't expect we'll see this solution twice.  Of course arming several bands of local wookiees is going to help.

The Out of Ashes group is prone to trying to get out of trouble by lying to it. It's worked pretty well so far... until one of them pulled a red lightsaber in front of two-thirds of the station's security force. They did not, in fact, lie their way out of that. They couldn't lie to the Jedi Master who's on his way, either.

Given how injured they are after the fight with the security guards, things are going to get interesting.

Break into a guarded warehouse to find a case, only the case was in a ship belonging to an organization one of the PCs worked for.  Stole the ship and case and on the way to return the case, they built a fake case to give to the employer.  The employer figures out the case is a fake and orders the PCs killed.  During the firefight, an assassin droid is taken out by the Wookie Sharpshooter autofiring his bowcaster and in reply, a journeyman bounty hunter fires his disruptor rifle to vaporize the Wookie's leg.  The employer escapes and is shot down during the ensuing chase.  When they inspect the crash site, there is no body.

When their ship was locked down at the spaceport, my players captured the spaceport administrator in his office, where the slicer promptly broke into his personal terminal, found his weird Toydarian porn stash, and threatened to transmit it to his wife over holocomms unless he reversed the lockdown.

Not to mention in the same session, our pilot driving a hijacked landspeeder indoors, through hallways that just barely fit its width (the friction was creating sparks at the sides), all to scatter the spaceport security that had cornered the others.

"This, is a tempest soldier, the finest genetically bred warrior this empire has to offer. I will put this target next to you and have him shoot it as a demostration of his power and accuacy (gesturing to the titan with what is effectively a starship cannon)

 

"Yes, that would be a good demostration"

(Tempest shoots and misses with a double dispair result, the shot was aimed at our talker, but missed dramatically, puncturing throw several layers of blast resistant wall to hit  the main power core to the station causing a gigantic power failure pitching the underground lab into complete darkness)

"Most, impressive."

And that was how Preditor Squadron took out a entire ultra advanced underground lab fortress housing the tempest project. Without firing a single shot or even breaking cover!

They took the dead bodies of the pirates they had killed and propped them up in a turbolift, then hid on top of the turbolift as it went up and waited for the doors to open expecting there to be enemies there who would open fire on the dead bodies thinking it was them.  There weren't any, they were elsewhere, but the amount of detail they went into setting the corpses up...

In the campaign i was running it was about 15 years after order 66 and the party had their mentor as Gardulla the Hutt (whom was force sensitive herself). In the campaign there was a rival Sith Lord and Apprentice i had custom made to be the enemies of the group of 4 force users and 1 droid. Only one of the players was a Padawan that survived order 66, while the rest discovered their force sensitivity in the campaign.

The first time they met the Sith Apprentice she had basically walked into Gardulla's chamber and waited for them to return from their current mission. I had no plans on a fight breaking out, just an introduction. As the way i built the Apprentice was as an Aggressor with the influence power. So she primarily used fear and influence to fight rather than her sabers.

One of the party members was a Kaleesh and ultimately a fight breaks out. The PC's lose with their lives intact (except the droid that she cut to pieces, but was rebuilt). As the Apprentice was strutting out all quiet and cool one of the party members said something out loud in character, but he meant to say above-board. "BYE BYE OCIFFER!" so the Sith just whipped around, used influence to make him go unconcious and stormed out of the room angrily.

This particular party got into a lot of shenanigans, especially the player who was the Droid.

My players charmed a Star Destroyer to death.

 

To introduce a new player to the game, I built him a one-off character before he sank his teeth into his own. It was security droid built as a Colonist Marshal. 

 

This was the end of a big story arc that culminated in the party infiltrating a Gladiator-class SD. Once they realized the entire ship was a giant lab dedicated to nefarious experiments on all living creatures, they decided to scuttle the whole thing. They planted explosives and leaked gas all over the ship to ensure max damage.

 

Since he was a one-off character, the droid stayed behind to make sure the officers didn't escape to thwart their plans. He also had packed his chassis as full of explosives as possible. As the crew blasted their way out in a stolen Lambda, the Computers check to set off the chain reaction failed.

 

It was up to the droid. I told him he could use any skill he wanted, if he could justify it. With a flip of a Destiny point, there was now a manual trigger button on his paneling. He calmly walked over to the lead scientist and with an easily passed Charm check, simply said, "Please push this."

This happened in one of the first sessions I did, The PCs got into a bar fight and the klatoonian heavy PC threw a bottle into one guys face (forgot his name but we will call him bob), that bottle shattered and stuck into bobs face then as if that guy hasnt had enough the klatoonian PC decides to make a improvised weapon out of the poor guy... picking bob up and accidentally dropping him on himself (Failed check) and then successfully succeeding to pick him up a second time and throw him into his friend who was wielding a vibroknife impaling bob and knocking his friend down

 

TLDR: guy got bottle thrown at him that shattered and stuck in face, then got picked up and dropped then picked up again and thrown at friend wielding vibroknife who unintentionally impaled him.

 

btw, these 2 PCs surrendered and survived with just 1 or 2 wounds left but it was hilarious at the time

My team acquired a starship by the Marshal character managing to convince local authorities that the ship was evidence in an ongoing Imperial Investigation. This was just after the team Bounty Hunter had taken the dead option on a dead or alive bounty on the owner of the ship.

 

This in and of itself would not be so bad, except the owner they'd taken out was someone they'd just done a highly illegal job for and needed to keep him quiet about their involvement in the job; mostly as he tried to set them up and betray them.

I drove my players (and characters) over the edge by accident once.  They were hunting a dark side force user (they knew he was a dark jedi) and had followed clues to a hotel he was staying at.  They talked to the desk clerk, found out he checked in a couple days ago, but swore he hadn't left the room since.  They broke into the room, bad guy wasn't there, and they found evidence that he had been coming and going often.  They almost went dark interrogating the poor desk clerk (who knew nothing), sure he was covering for the bad guy.  It took a while before someone realized that every time he left, he must have waved his hand and said, "you didn't see me".
