Great story with a even nicer twist. I have to remeber this birlliant application of the glamour spell. Maybe I can use it next time.

Alright.

>Gonna play DnD for the first time
>It's 4th ed, unaware of its reputation
>Puts some thought into making a nice old lady cleric, detailing her family and background etc.
>Time to roleplay, hooray!

DM: You are outside a ruined tower. You have come here to stop the goblins who have been stealing from the nearby town.
Me: (thinking) Killing goblins eh? Shouldn't take long. Then we go back to town as heroes and the actual campaign will start.

>We charge in
>We fight goblins
>For hours
>At midnight or so they are all dead

DM: Good, you've cleared out the first floor.

2nd session

>We go up the stairs
>More goblins
>There is a strange dotted square marked on the battlemap
>We fight
>And fight
>After too many hours we win
>Asks DM about square

DM: Oh, that was a trap but I forgot about it.

3rd session

>We go up the stairs
>Even more goblins
>FIght fight fight
>At long last they are dead
>Everyone finds magic weapons perfectly suited to their respective classes

Me: What? Why weren't the goblins using these weapons against us?
DM: Uh...
Me: And the goblins must have stolen these weapons from someone. Shouldn't we return them to their rightful owners?
DM: Uh...
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

Congratulation, you have found yourself a group of roll gamers. It can be fun once in a while, if you treat it more as a tactical tabletop that as a roleplay game. But we had this discussion several times already. Since then I have taken a look at some systems that focus on roleplaying and character interaction instead of endless rolling sprees.

Might I suggest MSF High?

It's an online forum RP that takes place in the titular magical Highschool for Heros, a tropetastic setting placed in the orginal Mahou Galaxy.
I was just talking with one of the Moderators the other day and he mentioned how he'd like more roleplayers then fight grinders...

...And if all else fails, there are always the beautiful plant Borg women!

I'm the DM in the majority of my playgroups.

Last year I ran fantasy campaign using GURPS (more detailed but also more flexible than DnD).

The party is adventuring to a town in the south, wandering through some woods. Come to a bridge taxed by Barbarian outlaws.

Knight, wizard, and dwarf mechanic stay in woods; female elf and female healer approach the bridge to talk the group out of a tax.

The women roll incredibly well for charisma-like checks; the Barbarians permit them to cross the bridge.

Once on the other side, the girls remember that they left their dudes stranded in the woods on the other side!

Dwarf Mechanic puts on his battlesuit and mangles the barbarians anyway.

With everyone across, the rest of the barbarian clan emerges from the woods (including a Hill Giant) and begin epic chase scene 8)
