    Actually, in most games I have been in, that would have counted -- win through roleplay is just as good of a win as combat, though usually results in less loot. Sometimes.

    *Opening spell of polymorph other is frowned upon.
    **Doubly so when the target cannot make saving throw to maintain current identity.
    ***Especially when it is a Troll to butterfly morph.
    ****Cannot then allow anyone to take up entomology as a new hobby.

    *Chain lightning in an enclosed space is a Bad Idea.
    **Doubly so when more than half the party wears metal armor.
    ***Cannot complain when both full plate wearing paladin and cleric won't heal you later in the round.

    *When fighting vampires, tag teaming bless water and create water elemental using the same water source will result in DM face-palms and higher than normal grapple checks.
    **When succeeding in those checks, it is poor form to gloat.
    ***Especially to the boss who sired them.

    Failure to comply with these guidelines gets you what you apparently asked for...
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    *Batman is an acceptable place to start for a character concept. Bat-Mite, on the other hand, is not.
    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    Is there any precedent for this? Because that's what I thought too but the DM didn't think it made sense so I dropped it. We play pathfinder.

    This type of confrontation was a standard in all our games [AD&D, 3.0, and 3.5; Star Wars (both old d10 and new d20); and Vampire the Masquerade]. I have not played Pathfinder, but I would think that victory is victory no matter how you slice it. And not getting bashed in is a victory. While we might not get the loot we might have had if we had just gone in magic missiles blazing, we usually ended up with an information resource if not a outright ally. Frankly, this was typically worth a lot more than gold or magic items, but that was how we did our games. (Mileage may very.)

    It probably depends on how your GM wants to run the game, but I would find it rather odd if talking my way out of a fight didn't count as a victory. (Of course, we always had skills (or equivalent) that we could base a character personality that was likely to be able to try that.) *shrug* If it bugs you it might be a good idea to talk it over with your GM a bit more to find out what [her] rational is, but it is [his] game and in the end, you will know better next time in either case.

    I wish you luck in figuring it out!
