With a group I played with a while ago, we used to play a lot of one- shots when players couldn’t be there. We liked that a lot, so we could try out a lot of different characters and stuff.
Once we got a magic amulet that we needed for a quest, but it appeared to be broken.
BARBARIAN GUY: Wait, hold up. I got a spell for this.
EVERYONE AT THE TABLE: …
BARBARIAN GUY: *takes the amulet* … mending!
DM: And all the people nearby look at the barbarian, astonished, as he stares at and cluthes tightly to the amulet while chanting ‘mending’, and nothing happens- it’s almost as if he thinks he’s some kind of Priest Gnome or something.
BARBARIAN GUY: *facepalms*
