Guest Author's Note: "There is no plan except what the players say there is. Most of the time.

Story Time: Any times where a DM took a potential plan more seriously than the players?"

Newbiespud's Note: Got another Spudventure for you! Well, technically it's a Spudless Spudventure, but it's a side-story to The Forgotten Ones that might bite us in the butt later, so that's exciting!

There is a fine line between offering your players a challenge, and trying to destroy them with your machinations. You don't always know when you've crossed it, but it's easy to recognize from outside.

The line is short of when you have finally destroyed them, right?

The best plan of any party The Werefrog was ever in was delivering a fruit basket to the great dragon.

Great Dragons are known to kill those who approach their lairs. However, we needed to go to the lair to ask a favor of the great dragon. Therefore, we needed an excuse to go there. As such, we planned to deliver a basket filled with fruit to the dragon stating we were hired to deliver the basket.

Of course, the entity that hired us to deliver the basket was our party. Yep, we hired ourselves to deliver a basket of fruit to a dragon who lived in the mountains on the opposite side a desert simply to ask him if what he knew of a butter spider.

The GM is smiling. Bad news.

Especially since Sunset is inexperienced and probably going to make a poorly thought out choice.

It's the player mindset. You grow out of it eventually...
Usually...
Sometimes...
Maybe...

A DM has to keep in mind that some players just wanna be nuts because they cannot be such in real life.
