>>17626215>our party's first Gelatinous Cube encounter of the game
DM- The tunnel is quite dark. You see what looks like a shimmering wall just around the corner
player1- I reach out my had and inspect the shimmering wall!
Player1 instantly sucked in, and paralyzed.
Player2 hastily tosses a grappling hook at player1 inside the cube to pull him out. Rope dissolves far too quickly.
Player3 decides his fort save is good enough, and DIVES INTO THE CUBE TO RESCUE PLAYER1.
Player3 is now paralyzed
Player4 Thinks this plan had merit. DIVES IN TO SAVE PLAYER1 AND PLAYER3.
I toss a scorching ray at it (and mentally begin preparing the requiems my bard will soon be singing)
Player4 actually managed to not get paralyzed and convinced the DM to let us get away with using a swim check inside the cube to move. He starts pushing Player1 out of the cube.
Pushes Player1 successfully out of the cube!
Cube's turn. Shuffles forward 5 feet, sucks Player1 back in.
That was a really messy, silly fight. We survived, and probably shouldn't have.
