RPGaDAY Day 21: Funniest misinterpretation of a rule
Funniest misinterpretation of a rule in your group?
Hunh. I feel like there's one out there regarding one of my youth players misreading something, but I can't think of it. One thing that came up recently was that in the D&D game I was running, we had a wizard who constantly cast the spell fireball while twin-linking it as a metamagic ability. It was devastating, and basically one-hit-KO'ed the final boss in the last session of my part of the campaign. After the new GM took over, the player tried to cast the double fireball again only to be told rather bluntly that you can't twin-link fireball because it doesn't have a to-hit roll, only a saving throw (all the while the GM is looking a little balefully at me). The players all protested, saying hopefully sarcastically how much they liked me better as a GM...
