that reminds me of one of the first campaigns i ever played in. my character was an assassin who was going to try to take out the king of some generic land. had the ability to polymorph, and a ring of dragonbreath of some weird, sonic variant.
so i transformed into a duck as the king was walking next to the ponds in his courtyard, and blew him to smithereens with one mean quack.
ad&d. the good old days.
