Any stories of players getting kidnapped? We've probably had that one before, but it bears repeating after so long, I think.

While you guys discuss that, if anyone needs me, I'll be playing The Phantom Pain while fighting off a cold from hell; a hellcold, if you will.

Well, once this gnome who led a traveling circus was captured and taken by a swarm of primal gnomes (with the actual swarm subtype, actually). They dragged him back to their mud village to worship him as a god because his appearance so closely resembled their idol, a large garden gnome. They then tried to force him to slay a green dragon on their behalf. I may or may not have DMed this when I was feeling silly/sadistic...

Also, good hook to get Luna in, but I foresee a comment about the bumpy railroad.

Dang it, I'm STILL sore about the way Lost ended... ah well, at least that silly campaign I ran that parodied Lost was worth something.

I once allowed myself to get captured by slavers. Why? Because we were looking for the kidnapped daughter of a powerful mafia don who would pay us well for her safe return. So naturally I had the idea of letting myself get taken and the rest of the party follow so we could be led right to the princess.

This plan works.

Trouble was, the party did not come to rescue me like I had told them to. So there I was on the auction block like a piece of art. Well this was perhaps the GM's big mistake, because i'm playing the bard, and what is the bard good at? Giving a Performance. Thus my character starts shaking her assets and putting on a stage show. The auction goes crazy as the bidding price skyrockets like inflation during the Nixon presidency until it devolves into a fight for me.

And that's when I managed to reveal my one-two punch: Suggestion to make the fight turn lethal, and then Escape Artist to get out of my bonds and flee. Haha, that was a lovely mess I left behind...
