Tell us a story about a time the GM gave your character the job of convincing the other PC's of something.

I AM that DM: of course, I didn't disclose to everyone else the exact sort of game we were playing, and I made the compulsive liar the one who had to convince the others. Needless to say, they thought he was lying his ass off: after all, would YOU believe a complusive liar if he said he saw a person's internal organs explode out of guy's stomach, only for those same self organs to strangle two other people without visibly being manipulated?

The best part was, I had been leading the game up to be a sort of steampunk crime game, where the characters were trying to make a gang; I waited three sessions before throwing anything eldritch at them, and when I did, well...

The convincer utterly failed to be even slightly believed (it was an ultra easy roll, too...), and and the rest of the party ended up touching some obviously evil stuff to spite him. It was only when the convincer's hand physically detached* and tried to kill the party that everyone realized shit had gotten real.

*Of course, it was only in their minds; in reality, they ended up cutting off the poor bastard's hand in a fit of madness. Yeaaahh... I gave his character some buffs afterwards because I felt kinda guilty.

I love sadistic GMs. They make the world of gaming go round.

Thing was, it wasn't even sadistic; they had several other warnings other than the poor sap, some of which were VERY obvious, but they were the sort of players who simply rush into a location and try to shoot everyone, without planning.

In hindsight, I should've hit them with an original Gygax module; at least it would've made them more willing to think.

I'm playing a Bard named Bard Simpleton. Yes, the epitome of idiot bards, he was. Even after he received a dragon egg (long, awkward story) and receiving a +10 to his maturity/int score (With this character, they were pretty much interchangeable), no one would believe him when he said the Sorcerer was turning evil.

Of course, this lead to the team almost getting a TPK when the Sorcerer proved me right.
