No DMs No Gods No Proficiency Bonus
Our paladin (Jhersar) had dropped out of his holy training at a church and uses his paladin skills so little it’s a joke that everyone in the group thinks he’s just a fighter. We happened upon an old temple and he wanted to check it out.
Paladin: I roll a religion check *rolls a 9*
DM: it’s too old and worn for you to make out, and remember you are a shitty, shitty paladin.
Paladin: oh I know, I don’t even have proficiency in religion.
DM: why don’t you have proficiency in religion?!
Paladin: because I’m a shitty paladin!
Warlock: Well I do have proficiency so I’m gonna check *rolls a 4*
DM: you don’t have any idea what god it is either
Warlock: but I have proficiency
DM: yes and Jhersar is a holy man that doesn’t mean shit
