When the Gnome Panics
The party (an Elf rouge, Gnome wizard, and Human paladin) enter into the sacred garden-temple of a powerful religious order.
Elf: do I see any flowers?
DM: Yes. The gilded pathway is surrounded by flowers and trees in every color and shade from around the world.
Elf: I find the prettiest and pick it.
DM: A temple priestess sees you do this with great consternation. She calls out, “What are you doing there? Do not pick the flowers!” and approaches angrily. What do you do?
*the group panics and argues*
Gnome: I cast minor illusion and make bugs pour out of my mouth.
DM: The priestess screams.
Human: “I cant go back to jail!”
Elf: I run into the trees and use mask of the wilds!
Gnome: I cast invisibility on myself.
The Human paladin is left behind and arrested for public disturbance.
