Just wanted to quickly share a great “Defy Danger + Cha” roll that was used in my game last Thursday.
We were working a Dwarven Cleric into our party, and had spent some time figuring out how he ended up in a market place. After a series of questions, the Cleric revealed that the head of the Market was a very tall woman who “took a liking” to him. He described her as tall, tough, and not particularly pretty, but with “a beautiful singing voice”.
It turned out to be a somewhat uncomfortable engagement (“awww, my little dwarfy-warfy” kind of fawning), and the Cleric eventually sought out the help of our Wizard in making his escape. One invisibility spell later, and he was hiding in the trees when she released the hounds.
There was a poor attempt to distract the dogs, followed by a poor attempt to scare her off, and finally it seemed there was no escape. The Wizard and the Cleric would have to take on two guards, two dogs, and a very angry, very hurt brawny woman.
That’s when the Dwarven Cleric decided to sing.
Defy Danger + Cha, for the win.
He gained his freedom, but both of them ended up banned from the market for life.
