During yesterday's session (D&D 3.5), the wizard in our party, a servant of Vecna, convinced a couple of red slaadi (also servants of Vecna) to allow our party to cross the acid lake they inhabited...the price? They implant an egg in me. One week later, I fell ill, so I was rushed to a nearby fortress. A wizard there informed us that in one day, the blue slaad inside me would eat its way out and devour me alive. Everyone in my party wanted to cut me open on the spot and kill the slaad to save me, but I convinced them to allow me to give birth to it; after all, it was my child!
So I was dressed in magical robes which would heal minor wounds, and everyone gathered around me. There were two clerics (one NPC and one PC) with healing spells prepared, and my other party members with healing potions to pour down my throat, and the wizard from my party gave me twelve extra hit points and extra constitution. The DM decided at this point that since the rules simply state that the slaad's parent dies, the slaad would simply do claw and bite attacks to me, devouring twenty pounds of meat per round. He also told us that the slaad would not be satisfied until it had consumed my body weight in flesh: 205 pounds of meat (I'm a half-orc).
So for about ten rounds I was brought to the brink of death by the slaad (I had about 80 hit points total) while it ate my flesh, and then immediately healed to full health by my friends. Role-playing wise, we imagined my flesh was being continually regrown by the healing spells and potions, while the slaad continued to devour it at the same rate. Finally, after its hunger had been sated, it crawled out of the gaping cavity in my stomach, gave an adorable croak, and settled down to sleep beside me.
So now I have two characters: my half-orc fighter and my slaad, which I'll probably level in barbarian. I just wanted to share this story because I figured it was fairly unique. Has anyone else had similar experiences of giving birth to strange creatures or keeping strange creatures as pets?
Also, does anyone have any advice or ideas as to how I should roleplay and develop my slaad as a character? Name suggestions? Class suggestions? Etc.?
The two rangers in my party will help me learn to care for the slaad and train him, the cleric will help me instill him with good ethics and values, and the wizard (Vecna's servant) will probably try to corrupt him.
but healing spells do not regenerate only regenerate spell do it and is a Lv 7 spell = cleric lv 13 if you was lv 8 maybe the cleric not had that spell
Oma, it was flavorful and the DM allowed it. That's what is important, not "You should have died!"
This story is kind of awesome. Completely ridiculous, but awesome.
Awesome. Regeneration would've been the more appropriate spell, sure. But awesome anyway. And unique. I allow stuff (like this) if it's good thinking.
