Just a few mini-stories
Well, if he was a true wizard, he'd just give you transmuted gold which turns to wood an hour later.
Also in the first story, that's not how polymorph works. If he turned into a cat and was KOed, he just reverts back to his original form and the overkill damage spills over to his HP. Unless you did enough overkill damage to wipe out his original HP (unlikely with a punch, even if you're a monk), you're playing by some weird house rules.

@Mhael, Homebrews > Rule logic
@Mhael, unless they were a shifter, not using a spell, like a Hengeyokai. In that case, the health value of the character is the same as if they were human and AC from humanoid form is also taken into account.
@Mhael, my bard in my last campaign got polymorph at level 7 and then spent an entire session without ever getting the opportunity to use it. The next session a new player joined us partway through the Mummy’s Tomb, playing as a Yuan-Ti snake kin cleric named Sssssteffffen (extra letters necessary). The group ran into him while fleeing from a gigantic statue that we were convinced was going to animate at any moment and kill us (we have a bad history with statues in D&D).
So the new player decides to have the cleric cast Summon Food and meet the party in the middle of a dungeon by offering them cake. My bard had been having a bad day, so he snaps “we don’t have time for this”, casts polymorph on the cleric, who fails his wisdom save and turns into a newt, catches the falling lizard out of midair, and pockets it until a fight starts two rooms later.
Ever since, we call the cleric Newt.
@Mhael, there's also no reason for him to roll, unless the cat guy was deliberately trying to dodge the petting
My favourite is a stealth ork with high charisma works just beautifully
@Bad Boi Jesus, “you don’t see me!”
@Bad Boi Jesus, Don't put any points into stealth. Put everything into Intimidate and Bluff.
D&D story. Last Sunday I played my first game of D&D. I was a Dragonborn paladin. This one involves a little paladin spell called Thunderous Smite, it's pretty cool, it knocks enemies back 10 ft on a failed strength save. The party was fighting this necromancer on an encounter made for five people, but only three showed up, so it was dummed down. The necromancer was in combat with the other fighter in the group. I come up behind him with Thunderous Smite and end up knocking him into my ally for 3 damage. So that's how I did 3 points of necromancer damage.
@The Freaking FBI, I have a Goliath barbarian that through a house ruled character creation system has a strength of 22 and an intelligence of 6. He’s super strong but literally retarded, and I traded in the ability to use any weapon (any weapon attack is made without proficiency at a disadvantage) for the monks martial arts feature, plus he has Tavern Brawler and Brawny feats.
My favourite maneuver in combat is to pick up an enemy by the ankles and use them as an improvised weapon against their allies.
@I Are Lebo, Beat a mother fvcker with another mother fvcker.
D&D memes are what I come on here to see.
17 is a prime number... how did you think selling any number of anything for any amount a gold each would result in 17?
If your DM makes you roll to pet a cat, he can't be very good...
