Context: I don’t remember the player classes because this was a while ago. I’m also not 100% sure on races, for the same reason. But neither of those are really significant to the story. (Also, it’s worth noting that this is only the gist of what happened because this particular D&D game was almost a year ago and I obviously can’t remember every quote) Anyways, my character had found a secret door under a river and was trying to unlock it. Earlier in the game, we had found a town and I managed to either abduct or use my charisma to charm many townspeople to join me, so I had a following of at least 7 NPCs. The rest of my party had moved on ahead while I messed with the door, and had found a field filled with monsters. One of the girls (player 1) got down to 1 HP because they were so dense and needed extra support. However, I believed there was something important that could help us behind the door, so I was going to keep trying to open it.
Player 1 OOC: oh my god I’m going to come over there and fight you just help! we need your townspeople
*She sent her character back to the town to heal up and then drag me back into battle*
Player 1 IC: Come on, we need you to help us.
Me: But there could be something behind the door, if I can just find a way to open it. It could help us get past all these monsters.
Player 1: The door won’t open. Just come with me and we can look at the door later.
*My character glares at hers.*
DM: Roll for charisma.
DM: Your glare deals 1 damage.
Player 1 OOC: But I only had 1 HP!
DM: And you just lost it because of this really intense stare.
