Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Isn't there usually a voting poll for contests?

Sometimes there is, other times there isn't. With this number of subs, it looks like votes/xp will decide it.

The result somewhat surprises, not in terms of the winners but in terms of the actual sub. I've always expected PA to be the first and Sil second based on sub score but then I though A Summer Freeze would be second. But then we're obviously talking about using a different criteria.

The simple "criteria" was XP :)

No quarrels with it either way, just taken a little by surprise since I remembered that quest ranking used to be by avg score.

Congrats to the winners!

A brunette bounds onto the stage and takes a bow.

Alright, hopefully this awards ceremony will go better than the last one. First I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to read my massive wall of text, I'd also like to thank my mother and fa-

She reaches into her pocket to retrieve a long list but is stopped by the bottle that has appeared in her hand.

Ah s**t.

She vanishes in a cloud of purple smoke and glitter.
