Inspiration is one of those mechanics where I severely wish I saw it used more frequently by every 5e DM, but I absolutely sympathize with why they tend not to.

All we're missing is the "Hem hem."

The biggest difference is that Umbridge was never popular.

I liked her: The kitten plates are so cute. I wanted to have them so much.

Don't forget the kitten plates are evil - they warn her of kids doing things she disapproves of.

Inspiration is a double-edged sword. I've seen it used to motiate roleplaying exclusively, but I feel that's unfair for players who simply aren't there to roleplay or aren't good at it. I prefer to use it to motivate not acting the character blatantly out of personality, and acting within the theme of the adventure.

Pfft. When I ran 5e games, I gave out inspiration like popup ads on Dailymotion, with cake and flashing colored text! And my players still wouldn't use it!

They either kept forgetting it was there or they be like "I might have a better use for it later, so I'll just accept getting my face bitten off now by the worg."

All my 5e adventures ended with PCs missing chunks of their faces and all the inspiration points sitting like that pork loin leftovers in the back of your fridge no one eats. :(

Hey! Scars build character! And attracts the ladies!

Clearly you didn't have enough potential TPK scenarios for them to get the value out of spending their Inspiration points, lol
