Once upon a time...
Maleficent: so I can turn into a dragon and burn the forests on purpose
James uh uh yes as a matter of fact
666 dislikes now.
Why did Aurora feel glad to see Philip again at 4:11?
Only one prince can kill a dragon
Maleficent: I go up to the top of my tower. Can I see Prince Philip?
DM: *rolls die* Yes, he's sitting atop his white horse, holding a Shield and a Sword. Flora, Fauna and Merryweather are with him, too. They're headed for King Stephan's castle.
Maleficent: Gonna pay them back for what they did to my Familiar... Are there any rock formations, narrow ledges, cliffs, precipices and/or caves he'll have to ride through or cross over or ride under in order to reach the castle?
DM: Yes, there is.
Maleficent: Okay, then I use "Call Lightning" to take control of the overhead storm and try to strike down a bunch of debris on top of him.
DM: Uh, why not just strike him with the attack?
Maleficent: He had no Sword or Shield when I caught him, which means that they were probably given to him by those little pixies. And knowing them (and YOU) that Shield probably has enchantments tailored to giving him resistances against my spells specifically.
Philip: Hey, isn't that meta gaming?!
DM: *rolls die* Nah, her Int check checks out. Plus, it's a pretty reasonable assumption given her centuries-long enmity with the Three Good Faeries.
Maleficent: Yeah, so he'd probably get halved damage at best from Call Lightning, but I bet you that Shield provides him no resistances against falling debris!
DM: Fair enough. *rolls die* Rocks fall, Philip. What do you do?
Philip: I raise my Shield above my head and try to protect myself and Samson as well as I can.
DM: *rolls die* Very well done. Maleficent? What do you do?
Maleficent: Another Lightning strike! I try to raze the road ahead of him!
DM: *rolls die* Philip, the road ahead of you is struck by a bolt of lightning, the very ground crumbles and falls down a deep abyss.
Philip: Cr*p! Uh, I hit the breaks and try to hurriedly find the narrowest spot in the fissure and then I get Manson to jump across to the other side from that spot!
DM: *rolls die* Manson rears back but you manage to get him under control, you guide him down the abyss to a ledge and you leap across unscathed! The castle is not far off now.
Maleficent: I cast "Wall of Thorns" on the bridge leading over into the castle!
Philip: Uh, that spell only has a range of 120 ft. There's literally NO WAY you can cast it all the way from your castle to King Stephan's castle.
DM: Actually, thanks to her staff, she can. However, the increased range and AOE of the Wall of Thorns cast with her staff costs her an 8th level spell slot rather than a 6th.
Philip: What the f*ck kinda broken-a**, homebrew sh*t items have you given her?!
Maleficent: Pretty sure the boy with the magic Sword and Shield has no room to complain.
DM: Right. *rolls die* A thick wall/forest of brambly bushes covered in dagger-long thorns instantly sprouts from the ground on the castle bridge, cutting you off from the building.
Philip: Urgh... Can this sword cast "Horrid Wilting"?
Philip: Yeah, f*cking figures! I swear, you've given her the most broken-a** items but my stuff, that was tailor-made to combat her stuff, btw, just plain sucks... Urgh, fine, I try to cut my way through the Wall of Thorns, but I also keep my Shield up to push branches and stuff out of the way.
DM: *repeatedly rolls die* Hm... Okay, Manson got a bit hurt by the ordeal, but with the help of the Three Good Faeries you manage to cut your way through.
Maleficent: WHAT?! No, he doesn't! That Wall of Thorns would've killed him long before he got through! There's literally no way he did that without dying, or at the very least getting hurt! Even if he's able to slowly move through the Wall of Thorns, the branches regrow if you try to cut them down!
DM: If you're using a non-magical sword, sure, but-
Maleficent: -but this is a Sword tailored to cutting through my spells, yeah, yeah, I gotcha...
Philip: Yes! Suck it!
DM: Okay, Philip, you're finally crossing the bridge and heading into King Stephan's castle-
Maleficent: Oh no he's not! I use "Teleport"! I put myself between him and the castle!
Philip: Teleport is not on the Druid's spell list!
DM: *rolls die* A swirling will-o-the-wisp strikes the bridge right ahead of you, Philip. Flames burst forth and there, among the flames, stands Maleficent, dark and foreboding.
Philip: ʷᵉˡˡ ˢʰ*ᵗ...
Maleficent: Okay, consider the following an Intimidation check to get him warmed up for what's to come: "Now shall you deal with me, o Prince! And all the powers of HELL!"
DM: ᴰᵃᵐⁿ, ᵗʰᵃᵗ ʷᵃˢ ᵃ ᵖʳᵉᵗᵗʸ ˢʷᵉᵉᵗ ˡᶦⁿᵉ...
Philip: ᵈᶦᵈ ˢʰᵉ ʲᵘˢᵗ ˢᵃʸ "ʰ*ˡˡ" ʷᶦᵗʰᵒᵘᵗ ᵍᵉᵗᵗᶦⁿᵍ ᶜᵉⁿˢᵒʳᵉᵈ...ˀ
Maleficent: Following the Intimidation check I use "True Polymorph" to transform into a Dragon! And the first thing I do as a Dragon is reinforce my Intimidation check with "Frightful Presence"!
DM: *repeatedly rolls die* ...Philip. You're intimidated.
Philip: You don't say?! Also, how many levels in how many classes has she taken?!
DM: Yes, you're demoralized, but not frightened.
Philip: Right then... Charge!
Maleficent: Oh that's absolutely precious. Fire Breath!
Philip: Don't fail me now, Shield!
DM: *rolls die* You block the jet of flames, but it knocks you out of Samson's saddle!
Maleficent: Again! Fire Breath!
Philip: Time to get the f*ck outta dodge!
DM: *rolls die* You manage to evade the stream of searing flames yet again, but they destroy the bridge leading forward. You're standing on the ledge. What do you do?
Philip: Can I actually reach her from my current position?
DM: Well... no...
Philip: Then I fail to see what I'm supposed to do?!
Maleficent: Well, isn't that a terrible pity? Seeing as the good Prince here is running out of options, I'll go with another Fire Breath followed by a Bite attack!
Philip: Uh, I block the Fire Breath with my Shield and then dodge the Bite attack by throwing myself into the Wall of Thorns to break sight!
DM: *roll die* Hmm, complete whiff on the Bite Attack. Maleficent? You lost sight of him. For all you know, he may have been turned to ashes by the Fire Breath attack.
Maleficent: Ah... I peer into the brambles and see if I can see his charred bones.
Philip: When her head gets closer to me, I attack her twice, plus extra action for another attack!
DM: *rolls* The first attack lands right across the Dragon's snout! The following two attacks unfortunately doesn't make it past her AC. Maleficent? Your turn.
Maleficent: Double Bite attack!
DM: *rolls* Hmm, nope, that Shield gives him a way too high AC.
Philip: I use the Wall of Thorns to break line of sight again and await my next opportunity.
Maleficent: Fine! I use Fire Breath again! I'm setting this whole damn Wall of Thorns on fire!
Philip: Oh cr*p.
DM: *rolls die* "Oh cr*p" is right! You're standing in the middle of an inferno!
Philip: Okay, I pull back! I try to find a safe space!
DM: You back up to a steep cliff. Flora calls for you to climb up.
Philip: Not like I've got any choice now, do I? I climb like my life depended on it.
Maleficent: Can I see him now?
DM: Yes, you can. He's just reached the top of a very steep cliff surrounded by burning thorns.
Maleficent: I lunge! I use double Bite attacks!
Philip: I fight defensively, trying to hit her whenever her head gets close!
DM: Mmhm... *repeatedly rolls die* ...blasted ACs... Nevertheless, she's got you on the ropes, Philip. Though neither of you manage to draw blood, she's pushed you to the other edge of the steep cliff. *roll die* You almost slip off and fall down into the brambly inferno below.
Maleficent: I take the opportunity! I use my last Fire Breath!
Philip: I try to block it!
DM: *rolls die* Uh-oh... You managed to avoid damage, but your Shield was knocked out of your grasp and falls down into the raging fires below.
Maleficent: Hah! You're dead!
Philip: What about the Three Faeries? Can they help?
DM: Hmm... *rolls die thrice* Yes, each one of them cast a blessing upon your Sword.
Maleficent: I rear up to do a lunging Bite attack!
Philip: I throw the Sword at her when she rears up, trying to hit her in the heart!
DM: Uh, okay, just a sec. *rolls die* Whoa... Nat 20... *rolls dices* Oh... Oh f*ck... F*****CK that's A LOT of damage! Uhm, sorry, Mal, but this is, as they say, "it" for you...
Maleficent: It's not over until it's over! I did a lunging Bite attack! Did it hit or not?! If I'm going down, I'm at least going to try to take him with me!
Philip: I try to dodge!
DM: D'uh, obviously! *rolls die* As the Dragon lunges at you, you leap aside. The monster tumbles past you and over the cliff, down into the roaring flames beneath the cliff. Seconds later the fires die down and at the bottom of the cliff you see Maleficent's empty robes pinned to the ground by your Sword, the sacred brilliance of its blade swiftly turns an accursed black as the seething evil in Maleficent's impaled heart defiles the very weapon that pieced it.
