Story Time! (Wow, it's been a while.) Any stories about arriving at a new seemingly benign location and immediately finding reason for suspicion? Better yet, a story about being oblivious to the signs?

Well, if it's suspicion...

Every character in pathfinder I play tends to be a bit more on the paranoid side. The very first character I played was a bard named Lem (He was a premade, but I roleplayed him as best as I could). We entered the Prince of Trade's home, and immediately, I started looking around, examining EVERYTHING to see what was going to kill us.

Zombies came in through the windows, and the DM would NOT let me burn the building down to kill everything.

See, that's really unfair of the DM. It's a long-standing unwritten rule of RPGs--If the DM is allowed to use zombies, the PCs are allowed to set everything on fire.

That's just professional courtesy.

Players should ALWAYS be allowed to set things on fire.

Players are going to set things on fire even when they're not allowed to.
Or even when they're not intending to, for that matter.

I mean, I'd just call that a link-in to rule zero of improvising; never say "No", always say "Yes, BUT". It's not the DM refusing to let you do something, it's the DM reminding you of the consequences you should be able to see.

For example; Yes, you can set the house on fire if you'd like, BUT that Noble's Guards who I mentioned earlier are already giving you less-than-friendly looks. No telling what they might do if you pull out a flask of alchemists' fire and start sizing up the curtains.

Looking, got nothing.
Time for a back up survey.
If you could learn one skill from your most recent build, what would it be?

If I get to actually keep said characters statistics and by "skill" you mean "ability", it would have to be Flash of Omniscience. 22 times per day I have a 100% chance to learn a secret I can use to annoy people.
