[GASP AND SCREECHING] LET THE DREAM BEGIN! YOU ARE SO GULLIBLE. BYE BOYS!
BYE CARLY. DID YOU SEE HOW CLOSE WE WERE?
I FELT IT.

  1. 2:37: I'm fairly sure that putting on an amulet wards no attached check. Since the character is a level 15 ranger, their arcana is probably high enough to use an amulet. Plus, arcana checks are usually used to identify magical objects, not to handle them.
    3:47: Assuming they made a charisma saving throw here, neither of them added their bonus. If they really have been on this campaign for 6 months they should have a high enough charisma modifier to beat lower roles.
    5:21: Couple things wrong here. The dragon wouldn't be able to notice them without rolling for perception (probably with disadvantage since it has been sleeping). If the dragon rolls high enough to notice the two it still would be able to instantly kill them. They all have to roll initiative first. Even if the dragon rolled highest initiative it still can't kill them right away. the the dragon must make an attack, and since it'd probably be some kind of mouth-projected attack. Even after that, the two players would have to make their dexterity saving throws, and if they succeed, they wouldn't even be damaged at all. If they failed their saving throws then it still wouldn't be powerful enough to insta-kill. Players who have campaigned for six months most definitely have enough hit points to withstand this attack. If the dragon made another attack, like bite, it would have to roll for accuracy and damage. see, the players would still have armor class. Armor only adds small bonuses to armor class. Take out the armor, and the armor class is still there. No matter what attack the dragon chooses to do (assuming it rolled the highest initiative), it has a chance of not even hitting them. In addition to that, the dragon can't kill them immediately even if it made a critical hit with maximum damage.

  2. I object to the player knowledge used and quest items from a different group being brought to a new group without consulting the dm.😄😄😄

  3. As a Druid I am very disappointed in your dragon racism…
    slowly shakes head in a disappointed manner

  4. Poor Matt
    I can’t trip and break a leg because I fly
    And I can’t get a critical fail because I’m a halfling

  5. In d&d, you don't have to roll for what your character says or do. You act like your character, so the dice dont count. You tool dice for attack rolls, saving throws, death saves, etc.

  6. While I am an avid lover of both d&d and Studio C, I cannot condone this injustice. Without further adieu, let us begin.
    -Gold Dragons are lawful good. It wouldn't kill good-aligned characters.
    -You didn't roll for damage against the characters, neither did you say what it was using or if it bypassed their armor class or not.
    -You don't need to roll a dice to say that your character does something. Unless you are activating a magical item, you simply use an action to activate its magical property.
    -Dragons do not possess any psionic abilities unless they are a subrace or otherwise.
    -Adam didn't say what maturity the dragon was. There's wyrmling, young, adult, and ancient, with ancient being the most powerful.

    Overall, the sketch was fun. Please make more of these, as many of us avid nerds drool for more!

  7. Obviously not a case like this, but my sister loves to play D&D. The whole family plays every other Sunday afternoon.

  8. Something tells me the "GUILD OF ADVENTURERS!" are actually evil. They raid a golden dragon's lair, try and take down unicorns, and associate with dark wizards. This clearly isn't a good-aligned party.

  9. This is horribly inaccurate to a real game of dnd the got stuff done in the game instead of spending hours laughing about stupid things one of the players did

  10. I wonder what edition they’re playing it looks like 4th edition

    Edit: nevermind 3rd edition based on the roleplay

  11. I don’t think I’ve ever rolled to smile before. They role a lot more than any campaign I’ve ever played.

  12. I think this is funny because in my group of friends playing D&D, there’s only one guy…the rest of us are girls😂💀

  13. This is so accurate. The whole time I was glaring at the screen, I hate people like this but well done

  14. Mallory (in sexy voice): You are so…
    Me: YESSSS!!!!
    Mallory (no longer in sexy voice): …gullible.
    Me: *screams, throws my iPad at the wall.

  15. The subtitles…"I trust we have the proper magical amulets to protect us from the dragon's CYANIC abilities" is driving me crazy…

  16. i'm trying to imagine what would happen if one of these people tried to play with my party. they're just so serious while everyone else is setting towns on fire and the dm is questioning their life choises

  17. As a Chaotic Neutral Elf Rogue, I disapprove of these players falling for the classic ploy of the women. The original plan was correct all along, rob and run. Obviously their Wisdom stat was far too low.

  18. Adam's face when they're about to kiss 😂 Like Jason was funny but the fact that Adam was able to hold the same facial expression for almost 30 seconds while everyone around him was doing something that makes people laugh is truly amazing

  19. 5:20 before he rolled for the dragon he should have made Matt and Jason roll a stealth check if this was proper D&D

  20. I mean okay that was pretty funny but let's be honest, lots of girls play d&d. Including myself there's two in our group, and many podcasts have Lady players. Plus, nothing keeps the male players from rping as girls. Nott the Brave is an example.

  21. Also, they play dnd kinda wrong. You don’t need to roll for the simplest things, unless you are a cruel dm. Players don’t dictate what a roll does.

  22. Ok, if anyone here plays dnd
    Don't play like this

    The girl, should've been informed on what level her character was
    Not just automatically have a level 15 character, the dm should determine how many levels the character can have
    For all we know, the rest of the party was only level 6
    So the dungeon Master should've delt with that

    .

    The boys, should've treated her as if she was just another player

    .

    And the girl
    She just ruined their whole campaign & just left

  23. Robbing a lawful good Gold Dragon while it sleeps, tricking other PCs into giving you their magic items, and critical failures that result in hilarious outcomes?

    Studio C did their homework 🙂

    …Except for the Gold Dragons being evil part. That was weird.

  24. Are the captions fan-made or did she actually say "cyanic" (relating to cyan, the color) and not "psionic" (relating to psychic/paranormal ability) – 2:20

  25. I thought for a moment she was going to say that golden (brass) dragons are lawful good and I too would have been in love

  26. What dm accepts that someone got gear outside of their campaign that they didn’t see! Like abengline will return with the sword of the litch king and a staff worth 1000000 gp
