(So I’m playing a character who is basically Batman - hand-to-hand fighter with a cape. We’re at the top of a mountain, and the village we need to reach is hundreds of metres below)
DM: So, how are you going to get down?
Me: I use my shield as a toboggan and slide down
DM: You can’t do that, you’ll just fall. It’s a sheer kilometer drop.
Me: Ok. I use my cape as parachute and glide down.
DM: If you fail this roll, you will die. Like, dead.
Me: Ok. I use my cape as a parachute and glide down the mountain.
DM: You’re out of the game if you fail this roll, you know that?
Me: I use my cape as a parachute and glide down the mountain.
DM (seething): … You successfully glide down the mountain and land safely at the bottom.
