Please tell me you just didn't do that.....

Sometimes in DnD I just want to reach over and slap a player, but then there are those times where they pull the dumbest move ever and even though it fucks up my original plans it makes me happy because now I can make the real pain begin. Ok if I lost you (Which I more than likely did) let me explain.



The players had just entered the Shadow lands on their final Assault against the Lord of Shadows and his minions, everything was going good until they came up to a large swamp blocking their path, now the groups Shugenja (Eddie) threw a rock into the swamp which quickly melted. The group figured People + Swamp = Dead people. As they sat there trying to figure out how to get across the swamp the Shugenja launches a damn Fireball! Well I don't think I need to go into a science lesson on what happens when fire ignites swamp gas -.-, this causes a huge explosion and a large pillar of black smoke to rise up from the burning lake of fire. As they figure out how to handle the fire the groups Naga Totemist (Kristen) feels the vibration of a large group of mounted Calvary coming towards them (looks like the smoke signal got someone’s attention. So the Naga Totemist, Human Incarnate(Matt), Human Monk(Rosen), Human Thief(James), Human Ninja(Kevin), and Avatar of Vengeance(Beth) all bolt leaving the Shugenja and War Mage(Will) alone. Now the Shugenja flew into the air trying to use the fire pillar as cover while the War Mage tried repeatedly to cast ray of frost on the fire to put it out. Well it looks bad for the War Mage when the Ninja turns and begins to charge the horsemen, while that is happening the Shugenja levitates the War Mage near her. Stopping short of the horsemen the Ninja uses his special Gorgons Fang Mask to spew out a cloud of smoke, turning the horses to stone and launching the Soldiers into the fiery swamp. Once the coast is clear the Shugenja come back down to earth and lets the mage fall as a joke then tries to use feather fall but fails horridly and pushes the mage into the fire as well. The group acts quick enough to save him but all but a few small strands of clothing are destroyed. This pisses off the War Mage but his rage is cut short by the screeching of 4 shadow wyverns. Now with part of the swamp gone the group begins to cross is, the thief spots a hidden door way in the ground (All but the mage go down into the secret passage. The War Mage is captured and taken away while the rest of the group explores an underground tunnel. While exploring the tunnel the come across a room with a large pool in the center, under the water is a large iron chest. The Totemist thinking on his feet searches the room and thanks to 5 lucky search checks presses a few buttons and pulls a leaver to purify the water, it was dissolving acid to skin before he did all that. Once that is done the Shugenja moves the water with control water so the thief can do his thing. Inside the chest is a single medium sized bag with 2 figures in it, a small wolf and a dragon. Well the thief being the untrusting bastard that he is gives it to the Shugenja, who reaches in and is instantly pulled into the bag and changed into another figurine. The Naga picked it up and tried to free the Shugenja and was pulled into the bag, Totemist same thing, Avatar of vengeance same thing, the thief them takes the bag and turns it inside out >.<, this sucks to no avail because it was a cursed bag of holding. Now since he did this it caused a massive rip in the space time continuum sending everyone tearing through time and space until they arrive back in their world 20 years later, the entire world is now covered in shadow....now they are all there, naked without any items. Except for the Totemist who is currently stuck in Limbo O.o.

Just a few notes:
1) The names in the ( ) next to the class are the players names not the characters.

2) Some people would say that it is impossible to turn a bag of holding inside out, not me. I think it is a cool idea that if they are able to turn the bag inside out and cross the pocket dimension in the bag with the material plain it is more freedom for me to cause more chaos for them.
