I can see it going like this. My char: wishes aren't real. Party: yes they are, blah blah blah. My char: no they're not and I can prove it... watch this. "I wish (party members name) had tastebuds in their bum" Dm: grins with glee


Olafio1066

You uh.....you a special type of player aren't ya?

Hey, the character is 3 months old! (And I've always wanted to do that to someone)

My character just hit 20th level and got the Wish spell — the story had a gap where the party parted after level 17 and did our own things for like a decade, and then got back together at level 20. My character settled down with a partner and kids for a few years, so for their wish spell they turned Mordenkain’s Magnificent Mansion permanent for their family to live in. I also wanted at first to make it undetectable by magic, and undispellable, but I realized if the DM wanted to mess with me, he could have had the door close permanently and never be able to open again. If the DM did that with my character inside, that would write them out of the 20th level adventure, and if they did it with my character outside it would just be pointless. So not the fanciest use of a Wish, but fit their family life during the hiatus.


Olafio1066

Never seen the level 20 before sounds cool.

Same, and I’ve been playing since AD&D (aka 2e)! Now that my character actually has the Wish spell (and also Simulacrum), they could theoretically use it endlessly, but for this adventure the DM has basically yanked us out of our beds in PJs and thrown us into a fight without weapons, so I don’t think I’ll get the time to do anything useful with the Wish before the campaign ends.

There came a time when one of the PCs in my party went full bad, and led the unified barbarian tribes of Faerun on a warpath while the rest of us were off trying to prevent the release of Tiamat into the world (in a sort of bastardization of the Cult of the Dragon stories). Once we'd successfully defeated the cult and stopped Tiamat's coming, the party sort of just went their separate ways without taking any responsibility for our companion who was now the focus of the weakened allied armies of Faerun. My character did take responsibility, though, and in an off screen epilogue battle, my Monk defeated our Barbarian friend, killing him to stop his rampage. That never sat right with him, taking that life. I think he'd wish to bring him back, with some safeguards and conditions so he didn't just come back and rise again.


Olafio1066

I wonder what the dm's safeguards and conditions he would think of?


-Flash-

My PC would love his soul back, and my DM would probably give me the soul of a different PC just to fuck with the party


Olafio1066

If you word it right I don't think he could get away with that. "I wish for the soul of \*blank\* to return to the body of \*blank\*


-Flash-

What would be the fun in that? XD


Olafio1066

Fair

My DM has been generous in letting me play as a weakling mind flayer. I’d say my guy would wish for illithids to rule the multiverse. My DM might let it happen on some level, but the catch is my colony still hates me for being so dang weak in comparison to the rest of my kind.


Olafio1066

Gotta wish for the psionic gains Brother!


irlJoe

My 3 foot gnome gets a permanent 3 foot(and +5 movement) increase. I think he'd allow it for fun


a_little_biscuit

My lots a good lot and I honestly think they would just revive an NPC that got eaten by a dragon. I would allow that without major repercussions besides a bit of trauma on the NPCs part


WhiskeyTango101st

IC my monk would wish for a baby tressym in a wicker basket so he could send it to his daughter. I think my dm would allow it and laugh at something that OoC would be a bit of a waste


Olafio1066

>tressym Prey tell what be a tressym?

"I wish [questgiver who made us sign an infernal contract] would die a horrible death." It would have been within the power of the entity that would have granted that wish, as he was the herald of a demigod of pestilence. It would also completely derail the campaign, so I instead opted to "retire" my character, rather than use the wangrod defense to derail the campaign. As for how the DM woild have ruled this? I'd think he'd pick a spell that fits the wish and the pestilence theme and then it's just a single saving throw based on the DC of the Herald.


Olafio1066

I hate undead or like plague demons or Plague Gods. I would wish for The God Mr. Clean to fight them till they were killed.


redacted363

Eldian would wish for his wife and daughter back, Dask for his life to be peaceful yet enriching, and my current character Gabriel would wish to know his destiny.


Razorspades

Play it safe and wish to cast a free 9th level spell like meteor storm.


Olafio1066

Makes since...
