Got a fun roleplaying moment last session. One of the things the party has been trying to prevent is the giants are trying raise a sleeping god to fight on their side in this big war between the giants & dragons that is crushing the 'small folks' between them. We've been hot of the heels of this cloud giant wizard. Last session, we took her out and a bunch of her lackeys but we couldn't find the McGuffin. We track it to the surface (her lair was a giant sky castle - which we gave as loot to an NPC ally of ours) and had a big chase. The rest of the party got worried that we were being led into a trap. My PC did not care. We were close. We were not missing out on saving the day because we were scared. As a result, he got way ahead of the group (by being a lot reckless).
He got to the god's sleeping place just as the dead wizard's lieutenant woke the sleeping god. So it was me versus a sleeping god, a decently high level cloud giant monk/wizard and low level cloud giant rogue. Not gonna lie. Thought my PC might bite it. Cast Globe of Invulnerability (from a scroll) on himself to make him immune to magic 5th level and below (still expected to get hit from spells from the god that were higher but I did still have a couple castings of Counterpell left to try and deal with that). Cast Blink to reduce incoming physical damage by 50%. Used Burning Hands to light himself of fire so he would heal 1d6/2 per turn just in case - and would light people who hit him with melee weapons on fire. That's when we found out the god had other plans. He needs his magic artifact weapon (which our party recovered a couple of sessions ago - just in case!
- and was now in the hands of our dwarf cleric who was a few rounds behind me) and he 'ported out after speaking some cloud giant to the guy who woke him (which my PC does not speak).
In the end, we learned one important thing from the cloud giant monk/wizard... since it wasn't a titan who woke the god (it would have been had we not taken out the cloud giant wizard last session), the god is now 'mortal' on the prime material plane. IF we can beat him, we can stop the giants for good. But from where my PC sits, he was so terrifying, a god ran at the sight of him. And no one can convince him otherwise.
