Magic > common sense
Context: We had just been on an adventure in our pirate ship, collecting these cursed items, mostly armour and some weapons, that allow the wielder control over an element. We are then faced with a gauntlet of elemental challenges to navigate our ship through things like storm, rocky reef, icebergs ect. once we cleared that we found ourselves at the foot of a 300 ft cliff with a ship sized hole at the top
Cleric: Well we are stuck
Fighter: We could climb it maybe? Do we have enough rope?
Bard (me): Wait a minute *cleric’s name* you can use your shield to control earth right?
Me: I have an idea, you can make a big, ship shaped ramp up to that opening right?
Cleric: Oh! Yeah! I can. *To DM* I do that
Other fighter: I see where this is going *To DM* I am going to use my artifact to make an ice sled for the ship
Me: *To DM*I am going to use my artifact to make a small tornado rocket booster out the back of the ship
Wizard: *To DM* I summon a big wave to push us up the ramp
So our insane plan works and we make a sick jump off the ramp with our ship into this cave
DM: Well that was interesting. You know I was actually just planning for you to lower the cliff down to the water level. You guys do realize you could have done that instead right?
