Steve (not his real name, in fact nobody named here is with thier real names, except NPCs) failed pointless intimidate check on the city guards to try and get them to bow down, resulting in them scorning him and baring him from the city we needed to enter. Before we could try to Biplomacy our way back in, he then started a melee with the guards, and I sided against the party. Gasp all you want, but I was lchaotic good and was not about to let my partymembers attack an innocent village. Screw 'party first' policies, I have standards and am not a comunist. Well me and the city guard were outmatched, as they were level 3 warriors, I was a level 1 wu-jin, and the rest of the party was level 1 haxor powergamers. Now there is nothing wrong with powergaming in and of itself, playing to become powerful and wanting cool magic items is fine motivation, but when you hunt down exploits for the sheer purpose of unfair exploitation of the rules, then it's a problem. So after killing 20 guards, having only lost a total of 7 hp in the entire party, my fellow members were about to kill me when a ki lung dragon, a NG dragon, arose from the mansion in the center of town and joined the battle. Turns out this was Ki Lu Fu Kas (say it fast enough and you'll get it...he was in highschool, let it slide. It's still not the worst he's done) whom we were supposed to seek for guidance to find an ancient artifact, and was meant to be an impressive ally who would send us on a quest as a favor to get the privilage of its knowledge. We were basicly on a factfinding mission, there was another group set to actually retrieve it for the Warlord Chin. We were basicly going to be minor servants that as they proved themselves through minor tasks would be trusted later on (higher levels) with more important work. Anyway, Ki Lu Fu Kas wasn't impressed with the random strangers slaughtering his city guard, so he fired his breath weapon no explinations asked. Luckily, turns out he'd been scrying on the situation and saw that I was on the guards side, so he angled is so I was not hit. The end result was 35 acid damage, 18 to the rouge who made reflex, which was enough to kill them all.
The campaigne kind of died there (no pun intended), but it was awesome to finally have a DM who has consequences to the PCs actions. Steve was still a bit psycho for the next two campaignes, but from then on the other players were a lot more hesitant to act all willy nilly and flaunt all rules and atmosphere. Bob had been our previous DM and a PC. Bad idea right from the start. So naturaly everyone else, not being old hands, started thinking the could get away with everything they wanted, no problem. When adam took over, social skills became more important, as did role playing, puzzle solving, and thinking through your actions.
I think therefore I am. This leaves you in a bad spot.
Army inteligence is sadly an oximoron these days. And no General, I did not just call you a cow.
I cut myself shaving with Occam's razor.
