|Practical jokes. No matter where in the multiverse you
may be, one thing never changes: practical jokes are a favoured pastime. However, on
the Outer Planes, pranks of this sort tend to be a bit more over-the-top than those found
elsewhere. Presented for your reading pleasure are the ten most humorous practical
jokes the author has observed throughout his planewalking career.
Find a Clueless wizard. Tell him the spell key for getting wild
magic to work on Mechanus is jumping up and down while squawking like a chicken.
Fill your tiefling companion's wineskin with holy water.
Slip a corpse fly charm into your friend's rations.
Wait until the dead of night, then build a brick wall in front of an
oft-used portal. Spent the rest of the day with your ear to the bricks, listening.
Find a store with a fiendish proprietor. Make a purchase, than pay
in silver coins and walk away before the merchant can say anything.
When asked for directions in Sigil, send him around the long way.
Invite both a tanar'ri and a baatezu to dinner in the same restaurant, at
the same table. Don't show up.
Directly before a gladitorial match, serve both combantants roast cranium
rat. Watch them try to work out their differences through calm, intellectual debate.

them. Hand the portal key to the next curious passer-by. See how long it takes
for it to occur to him.
And the No. 1 Planar Practical Joke...
Open a gate to the Abyss beneath an outhouse. Walk away.
