Story time! Any stories about making "open-ended" rulings, letting the players decide how to interpret it?

...all I can honestly think of is well played...very well played, Discord.

Also, first.

I avoid open ended instructuctions like plague.

Usually *open ended* just means *findind the most ludicrous and stupid way to barely not doing what you are supposed to do while pretending the opposite*

In my experience, "open-ended" means "wander around aimlessly and discover the best way to shoot the entire party in the foot." So rather similar to your experience, yes.

Well, I'm pretty sure that that's exactly what Discord is trying to do here.

Except Discord wants things to roll out of hand by doing this ... I (and I guess my fellow GM) don't.

Yeah, ludicrous aimless wandering shooting yourself in the foot pretending the opposite party.

If I were cursed, I'd try to get better because I would want to help Twi in this situation. I think all the drama of the curses played themselves out.

Amen Digo, amen. I wouldn't be surprised if in the next few pages Twilight finally snaps, tells everyone to shut up then goes on a massive "The reason you suck" speech to everyone and their 'hilarious' curses they haven't shut up about for more than 60 seconds with for the past 3 hours. That might be the point where Dash goes "You know what, she's right, screw this trainwreck I'm out of here." and leaves
