This Dungeons and Dragons story come from when I ran a Waterdeep Campaign where the players basically became Pokemon masters, trying to add to the group any of the monsters that they encountered. Hope you guys enjoy!

I handle a crit success as the best possible outcome. Asking a king to give you his kingdom will make him laugh about your joke instead having you thrown into the dungeon for asking something like that. In that dog case i would have simply given them enough time to escape.

I thought the way to deal with this was that on a crit success at taming the impossible you'd just make the creature decide not to kill them and leave :p

Had a game that was loosely set in ancient Greece complete with Mount Olympus housing the gods and all sorts of good stuff. Well my character managed to borrow a magical staff with magic WAY above his current level which included the Wish spell. Now this was Pathfinder so the Wish spell was actually awesome and when the party came upon a huge cave of terrible monsters my character decided to try and blow that Wish spell on trying to tame the Nemean lion. The odds were terribly low and yet it worked. To this day my character has the Nemean Lion basically living outside his mansion in town like a normal housepet and nobody wants to mess with him because of that lol. Of course this was also the character who managed to successfully Charm Monster Cerberus so the party could make their way out of Hades so I think he just had a knack for that kind of magic in regards to animals no matter how potent they were.

Ok, when I ran Dragon Heist, I made Volo sound like Jon Lovitz (a'la Jay Sherman). Also Holy crap there are so many pararelles to my game X3> During the Gralhund Manor piece they approached during the day and managed to get the Groundskeeper on their side (who is an evil cultist) and later the players adopted a rat, the poltergeist and the bronze dragon.

They banished Leif? My players worked with Leif to reopen the taphouse. Literally we are at 6 sessions in now getting the proper licenses and such, and that's with me adding those things to as a reward for side quests I am giving them. My players a weird, as they are assuring me they are having fun.

Why must they put dogs into these games? The players are gonna go completely out of their way to try and keep them as a pet regardless of it’s existence!

Why don't you implement a pet tax. Say that every pet deducts gold from a player do to the animal's basic needs, lets face it animals aren't cheap, so have fun calculating the cost of housing a dragon (unless the dragon is the one doing the calculating).

I was running Mines of Phandelver and my friend rolled up a Druid. This was her first time playing and she asked if she could become friends with some of the wolves. She rolled animal handling, and it was pretty high like a 18 or 19. I told her that one of the wolves stopped barking and looked at her longingly. TLDR Level 1 Druid has a pet wolf that changed sides.

Poor Animal Handling. Never used because most mounts are well-trained and everything else can be done easier with Persuasion by a PC that can talk to animals. Truly the most useless skill.

That's mostly why as the gm you should sometimes ignore some nat 20 because even if you perform at peak things still won't bend to your will its like looking in a room even if you get a nat 20 doesn't suddenly make a treasure chest appear from nowhere

In my group, we have someone who is notorious for taming EVERYTHING. In my game, she has a pet hellhound, in another, she tried to tame a Tabaxi PC, she even tried to tame a dead body that turned out to be a vampire (don't think too hard on that one). You could say that most of her characters are... mentally unstable... or just out right insane.
