So I was DMing for the second time ever, and my players are not serious AT ALL. They were exploring some ruins of a supposed castle trying to find a gem called The Lady, after some really bad rolls, the fighter finds a box that everyone assumes the gem is in, but they can’t open it. (They later find out it’s magic.)
They try every key they find, and WON’T STOP ROLLING TO FIND KEYS. I get fed up, and the next time someone finds a key, I say “The spirit of fantasy Steve Harvey appears, slaps you, then both his form and the key disappears. I hate you all, please, stop.”
Bonus: After everyone stops trying keys, the paladin asks me if she can roll to fuck the box. I say no, but she rolls anyway. Chaos ensues.
