Trying to sway a passionate crowd is probably one of the toughest common social challenges in a game, short of convincing a dragon to part with some of its hoard. You have to use broad, sweeping gestures to speak to a crowd. Such gestures can easily backfire horribly if you miscalculate even slightly, and sometimes they'll completely misinterpret what you're saying anyway.

Playing a crowd as a DM is super-easy. It's basically one character with multiple heads. Actually, yeah; it's the social encounter equivalent of a hydra.

Tell a story about a time you talked up how easy something was going to be, then failed spectacularly when the time came to put your money where your mouth was. Whether it was the fault of cursed dice or because it was actually a terrible idea in the first place, I'll leave that up to you guys.
