Background: Going through a cave and finding a giant 150ft metal plated stone door with Celestial on the door. Me, a gnome cleric who knows celestial, and the human bard, and the dragonborn rouge are trying to figure out the riddle written on the door.
Me: *Reading the text on the door to the group* The riddle in says, “When you have me, you want to share me. When you share me, you don’t have me. What am I?”
*whole group thinks for a while*
Rogue: *shrugs* I dunno
Bard: I know what it is! The answer is a secret!
Me: Wooooow, just because we can’t figure it out and you did, you don’t want to share it with us. RUDE.
Bard: No no no, I’m saying that the answer’s a secret!
Me: I know you know, geez, then why don’t you tell us! *getting irritated*
Rogue: *snorts as she understood what was going on a while ago*
Bard: *After approx. 5 minutes of trying to tell me the answer he gives up* Sigh.. what I’m trying to say is that the answer is, quote ‘a secret’ end quote.
Me: OH. Why didn’t you say so earlier? *says ‘a secret’ in celestial*
DM: The door swings open and lights flicker on inside past the door.
Later we barely pass the skills challenge (we only passed because of the bard) and was one fail away from dying after trying to loot the chest we found in the room past said door. We proceeded to roll amazingly for the loot we found in the chest. Bard: That was more trouble than it was worth I swear. (As the bard took most of the damage from traps and everything else in the cave in general).
