Tawmis's "Neverending Nights" inspired me to start this. ;) I hope they make you laugh! :)

jTop Twenty Things Not to Say to a Dragon
(written 18 March, 2005)

20. "Whoops! Was that YOUR egg I just trod on?"
19. "Is that a knight in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?"
18. "Open up and say ah!"
17. "You can't see me when I'm invisible, can you?"
16. "Anybody got a light?"
15. "Hi! My name is Arvath Dragonkiller. What's yours?"
14. "When was the last time you had a really good meal?"
13. "Ahhh, bite me!"
12. "Your momma was a flame thrower!"
11. "Why of course these are dragonskin pants!"
10. "Now I know why the Dragon's Breath in Spielburg smells so bad. "
9. "The dwarves are coming! (And hobbits too)!"
8. "You know, wrinkle cream might get rid of your scaly-skin problem. "
7. "You don't mind if I go through your treasure horde, do you?"
6. "Smoking heroes can be hazardous to your health. "
5. "So you're like, evolved from a lizard, right?"
4. "Take that, you wicked fiend!" (throwing a small bucket of water at it)
3. "I hope I give you fatal heartburn!" (while he's swallowing you whole)
2. "Aw c'mon. How tough do you think a dragon THAT old is? What's he gonna do, hit me with his walking stick?"
1. "Come and get me, you foul-smelling, bad-tempered, gas burner!"

I was a paladin who spoke Draconian in a campaign once. It did not help me.

ME: "It's over, everyone, I got this. *ahem* Excuse me, Brother Dragon. May we borrow that golden gauntlet you're sitting on?"
DM: "Do a persuasion check."
ME: "Twenty!"
DM: "The dragon is impressed with your accent. It still attacks. Roll for initiative."

1. "Daddy needs a new pair of boots!"
2. "Clearly you have so much treasure, you can part with some of it!"
3. "Bet that tooth would make for a magical sword..."
4. "Smaug was a wuss."
5. "Tiamat? She has five heads and still can't even think straight."

Of that list, I think rolling a 21-30 is worse that even a 100 or an 11-20.

Tarrasques should be feared by mortal, immortal, living, dead, undead, and by other Tarrasques.

Oh? How are they worse than "Tiamat, her entire consort guard, and six companies of Bone Devils"? ;)

Because - everything about the Tarasque is horrible. Spells reflect off of it, like 95% of the time. Getting close to it, gets you cut apart.

It's a massive size. There's just... nothing good about them.

As we know at least Raist could drive Tiamat back. :)

Ugh, they sound horrible! And 2-6 of them??? :shock: Is there any way to defeat a Tarrasque?

Uhm... maybe I shouldn't have asked. Here:

Seven Ways to Kill a Tarrasque (and yes, I read the whole thing) :P
Funniest Ways to Kill the Tarrasque ;)

(One of which was Greater Teleporting the Tarrasque several thousand feet into the air... it was almost a complete party wipe and I was down to my last spell. I got past his SR, he failed the save, and we both went straight up. I used Freedom of Movement to get away from his grip and Feather Fell the entire distance. Once the Tarrasque hit the ground, our Wizard wished him into the sun! :lol: And yes, the party did yell at me for not just Greater Teleporting them away from the Tarrasque.) ;)

Did you ever have to face that thing (not for real, of course!)?

I defeated a couple of Tarrasques, but only in Neverwinter Nights (in Horde of the Underdark). They're really wusses in HotU.

A lot of things in NWN are toned down, because it's a solo person (unless you have one handy NPC with you).

As for the Tarra - never had to face one. Don't think I was ever in a D&D campaign where the DM felt we were ready without it being a total party wipe.
