Stupid D&D Tricks

Youre all WRONG!
My group is in the process of updating their 7th-level characters to 18th level. I'll be running Bastion of Broken Souls for them.

Anyway, my son bought a number of magic items for his Rog10/Shd8, of which the following stood out:

Cloak of Arachnidae
Belt of Giant Strength +6
Gloves of Dexterity

We got to talking, and realized that all he needs is a wandlike object, Bracers of Web, and he becomes . . .

TA DA!!!!

The Amazing Spider-Gnome!

We can't be the only ones who do this stuff, can we?

A friend of mine had a Blue Goblin Psion/Monk/SoulKnife who was built around the idea of Yoda, with the blue glowy sword and everything.

I once played The Tick as a paladin in blued-steel plate armor in a party with a Cloak of the Bat-wearing Bruce Wayne ripoff. :)

Monk with boots of striding and springing and a ring of jumping.

Roughly, doubles your movement rate (already high as a monk) and allows you to jump that distance also.

DEATH FROM ABOVE!!

Oh, just specialise with evocation (fireballs especially) and use levitation ring - voila, Lina Inverse herself.

A friend of mine was playing an ogre barbarian with an INT of 4. His greeting to new people? "Are you food?"

(You asked for D&D, so I can't include the Cyborg duo of Beany and Cecil :) )

Stupid D&D tricks?

Bag of Rats--get the Advanced Cleave (or whatever) feat, drop a bag of rats in the combat, and...well...you can figure out the rest of the horrible truth.

-and THAT'S why I don't go to the WotC forums D

It's generally called the "Bucket of Snails" trick, and you need Whirlwind attack as well as Great Cleave.

I hear the bag of rats version a lot more often. They're less likely to die in dry weather before you get a chance to great cleave 'em, too.
