    Default You are standing in front of an angry beholder. All you have with you is a small rock

    Throw the rock up as a distraction and duck behind the nearest obstacle.
    Then, probably, lose 1d4 levels, get picked up and thrown followed by a disintegrate...

    Well the solution is obvious; it's the most frequent strategy that all adventurers turn to when they're on their last legs and are unable to escape.

    Go for the eyes.
    Just a random, forgettable NPC doing things an NPC does
    Things that NPCs do include, but are not limited to:

    Having a gold goblet over my head to indicate availability of a quest
    Having a catchphrase that never really catches on
    Having various rewards that are generally not worth the trouble
    Wandering around randomly
    Giving out obvious information if it wasn't obvious enough
    Repeating the same lines over and over again
    Repeating the same lines over and over again

    Roll my bluff check and try and convince the beholder that the rock is really an unsolvable puzzle. Step one to solving the puzzle is to let me go.

    I point to the rock and say, "He did it."

    Then I hurl the rock against a far wall as I say, "And that's for saying you're going to grow up to be bigger than he is."

    Immediately look at the rock in my hand. "I don't care what that dragon said, there is NO way this beholder will believe you are a magical present! Wait- what?! No, I'm done!" Toss the rock towards the beholder. "Wishes smishes, dead is dead!" Run away hoping the beholder is looking at the rock.
    "The body is but a vessel for the soul;
    A puppet which bends to the soul's tyrrany.
    And lo, the body is not eternal,
    For it must feed on the flesh of others,
    Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
    Therefore must the soul
    Deceive, Despise, and Murder men..."

    All I have is a rock?

    I tell the Beholder that I'll take 1000 platinum to put some clothes on.

    look at at the rock, then the beholder. Then ask if this is where I can put my rock down.. Then die..

    Attack the rock, screaming insults about the Lord of Stone. Hopefully the beholder will be soothed by my animosity towards the Lord of Eyes' enemy.

    I ask the beholder if it can smell what my rock is cooking, then interrupt its answer to tell it IT DOESN'T MATTER and drop the People's Elbow on it.

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    I don't want to spoil it but someone gets a rock in the eye.

    I do what I do in all situations for which I am hopelessly outgunned...

    Tell him about my new vegan diet and hope he loses interest.

    If its a red-named angry beholder and female, I said, "Happy Mother's Day!"
    I got a gem of wonder in my pocket for you as a present to calm her down.


    If its a gender neutral regular beholder and I am right in front of it... then one of those instant kill spells, hurl to hell SLA or FOD SLA... I believe that's not susceptible to its anti-magic cone.

    If its gender neutral and red-named; forget it then. Enlarge the rock, hurl it and run away fast behind the rock...

    Default One rock to rule them all!

    Use my Gnomish talents to turn that rock into a boulder. Chuck it at the beholder and hope it's incapacitated enough for me too flee!
