I'm playing a cleric/bard in a D&D 4e campaign. During the last 3 sessions, I have felt the wrath of certain dark forces at work trying to sabotage me and my party.
During the last 3 gaming sessions I have failed on about 80%, no, seriously, of my dice rolls (thank god for not having to roll for heal powers!). I have 3 sets of dice, 2 orange and a red. No matter what order or combination of dice rolling between the different colors of dice, they all turn up with dismal results.
After being blinded in the opening rounds of the major encounter with the big bad boss of death and her minions, I get blinded. I then proceed to roll saves each round to get unblinded. All I need to roll is a 10 or higher. I fail 8 straight save rolls, they aren't even close to 10. I remain blinded the whole fight and a little bit afterwards...
We fight about 2-3 battles per session and I use Hymn of Resurgence and Moment of Glory as my big saving graces to debuff the big bads and give my guys some defense. Well thank god for the automatic buffing from those powers because when I roll attack rolls for these, I usually make sure that the big bad and some significant baddies are hit by it, and when it comes time for the dice attack roll on them it's usually ends up being a 1 to 5 on the dice and sometimes I actually hit ONE and of course it's never the big guy ;( Seriously, I have a decent attack modifier but the dice say "I roll a 3, thank you, have a nice day"
Last session I had to make endurance rolls and although all I needed to roll was a 5 or more I failed 2 of the 3, thus losing some healing surges. Then at the all important adventure turning point to secure an alliance with NPCs, I roll a 5 on my diplomacy thank god for my tons of bonuses and barely squeak by, then after our barbarian accidently killed one of the NPCs in a non lethal test of combat I try to save her by applying my heal skills, I have +11 so no prob right? I roll a 1 and she dies...
Obviously my GM has concocted some sinister evil ritual of hexing on my dice.
How do I remove this baneful crippling affliction??!!
Do I need to cleanse the dice in flames? Or is the only option to "fix" them with the blessed hammer of smashy?
