#RPGaDay 2016: Day 4 Most Impressive Thing Another Character has Done
Today's topic is the most impression thing another character has done. I was in a Hackmaster campaign where we were fighting against some cult of undead evil. Our party was down in a crypt facing off against a group of skeletons.
Our group was low level and outmatched. We must have been playing Hackmaster Basic because I remember rules for exploding dice. Our dwarf cleric smashed into the first skeleton with his mace. He kept hitting the max on his exploding dice rolls for damage and dealt over 40 points to the skeleton, which immediately crumpled to the ground. Instead of running we figured we had a shot so we stayed to fight the rest of the skeletons. Of course the dwarf cleric was killed and we all ran away, but his mighty blow was talked about for ages.
