"Thought you Ought to Know"
The party was tasked to find a magical artifact that was being kept and used by this snake cult. They find the hidden entrance behind the waterfall and make it through the relatively empty common room and dormitory with no problem. When they reach the doorway to the inner sanctum of the cult this beautiful thing happened.
DM (me): The hallway ends with a large and heavy set of ornate stone double-doors.
Goliath Fgtr (OOC): Ok. I go to open the doors.
Before the player can even try to see it they’re locked…
Moogle Wzd (OOC): I use my Wand of Fireball on the door! BOOM!
DM and G. Ftr (IC and OOC): What!?
The charge is used and she blasts the door and our fighter for a whopping 33 damage, blowing him to the floor and the doors wide open revealing the whole congregation of the cult inside listening to their leader in the auditorium. They all stand and turn to look at the party as the dust settles when…
Elf Rogue: TROOOOLL!!! IN THE DUNGEON!!! TROOOOLL IN THE DUNGEON!!! (OOC)Bluff check!
She rolls for a total of 34 on the check…
DM: *silent cold glare that slowly shifts to stifled hysterical laughter as all but one of the cultists fail their sense motive rolls* The cult leader and all the cultists, save for one, all look to each other and in a screaming frenzy hurriedly dash for the exit.
Cultist#8 who crit succeeded his save: W-wait…we don’t even have a-
Cult Leader: Timothy, what are you doing just standing there babbling like a mad man WHEN THERE’S A BLOODY TROLL IN THE DUNGEON!?
Cultist Timothy begrudgingly follows them out now second guessing himself.
And with that the whole table broke out into hysterics.
