I remember several times we tried this plan among the players. It usually work best disguised as something else though...

But usually, it was to backstab the villain, not the players. Even if one time, the villain was a player :p

I've got... nothing relevent for this discussion topic. I'm sure Raxon's comment will be hilarious and over the top though.

I've mentioned my super before. I have also mentioned how his plan of beat them all in the face USUALLY worked.

then there was the time i had a d6/8 hd Skald RUN INTO MELEE WITH THE BARBARIAN. I fell over TWICE in one game. That was fun.

I dunno. The party never allows my looney characters to be the party face.

On the other hand, I have had a mage loaded to the gill with an at will, on demand teleport ability. That can be similar in effect to the clone spamming. Especially when teleportation is a free action, and I have a feat that lets me counterattack when attacked with any one round spell.

It could potentially be awesome, with me teleporting all over, provoking aoo, and countering with magic missile. The sad reality is that I just didn't have the AC for it.

So basically, I had something tactically similar to supreme cleave, except it required me to be attacked before I could kill them and move on to the next one.

The key word here is mage. Yes, it was a wizard. No, he did not have a lot of hp. It ended poorly in combat.

Yeah, but only because I misread the situation.
Basically, the airship we started the game on turned out to actually be run by some crazy cultists.
I thought they were just going to keep people 'in check' while they finished their ritual, and maybe took some valuables for good measure.
So I (successfully) talked them into letting me go to the bathroom, which included indeed having to explain how I wasn't with the loudmouth and the brute, then used a racial ability to make them forget I had done so.
But the plan (to get away from the guards so I could create some opportunities for the less sneaky members) fell apart when, through some questions from a confused GM, it turned out the situation was a lot more 'urgent' than I had thought.
Still ended up being useful (I was an assassin, so attacking from hiding gave pretty decent bonuses) but it was a lot of RL work for not that big an in-game benefit.
