Yeah, you CAN do this. But keep in mind, anything you do can lead into the party taking a hard B plot diversion. Like trying to fight a god at level 6 because you killed their favorite NPC. Or in my group’s case, slaughtering a town (of criminals but still an entire town) because someone stole, had forcible sex with, then murdered our donkey. The last two may be out of order, we aren’t sure, but I went with the lesser of the two disturbing ways. And they were criminals so they were armed, this wasn’t just a cutscene “ok you slaughter the town” no this was all live combat. We were level 7 or 8, and we moved like a tactical strike team. Our group had never, and has never again, worked that efficiently together.
It was 4 of us, a Totem of the Bear Barbarian was our point, followed by our Eldritch Knight Fighter, followed by our Circle of Dreams Druid(me), and our Forge Cleric.
@AceWolf456, that sounds like one heck of a session I was once a part of a group that took on and killed and ancient red dragon at lvl 5. We our bard convince him that he wanted to write a song about his ferocity and watch him devour a goat whole. We hid some wild magic reduced rocks on the goat that expanded into boulders upon being hit with acid, so when the dragon swallowed the goat, 6 boulders erupted inside his stomach, crushing all his organs. We then proceeded to destroy his entire cult following of kobold and lizardfolk
@CousinMose, D&D is an absurd game, full of the smartest and dumbest shît. Often both at the same time.
I love it. All TTRPGs really.
@AceWolf456, I've been getting into Call of Cthulhu lately. First time playing a TTRPG that isn't dnd.
