Rogue: I steal a trumpet.
DM: *ignores and launches into his Prince speech*
Rogue: Can I steal a trumpet while the prince is talking
DM: No- Well, fine, roll for it.
*Rogue rolls a 3*
DM: Everyone notices. The guy you just tried to steal from offers to sell it to you for 150G.
Rogue: I roll intimidation to persuade him?
*rolls a 3*
By this point, everyone is dying of laughter.
NPC: It’d take more than that to get my trumpet! Listen, the Prince gives me a stable enough income, I need the money to give my wife a pres-
Rogue: Wait, if you get a stable income, why do you still have money issues. Why is it my responsibility to pay for your wife’s present.
NPC: Well- uh, m-my son, he-
Rogue: Your son spent all your money?! Dude you’re a terrible father and husband, just give me your trumpet you’re better off working somewhere else like a bank.
