I think the second page of that is my favorite, particularly the survival section.

My favorite use of skills comes from my middle school bff.


DM's younger brother:
So what do we know about this ring thing that everyone's looking for?

DM:
Does anyone have mythological history?

DM's younger brother:
Yeah. <rolls> 16.

DM:
Okay, you know that the ring of the elves is a blue sapphire set in gold, and blessed with powerful magic. It has the ability to turn the user invisible at will, but is also said to be cursed. About 100 years ago, it was used by the princess of Rivendale to escape the war of the trolls, and she was last seen in Laketown, but she died mysteriously.

DM's younger brother:
Just kidding I don't have history. Let's go to Laketown guys.

If you have a creative DM though, he'll find ways to make you pay for that.

Oh look. It just so happens that younger brother's treasure was cursed and somehow they missed that. Or "Did you fireproof you're clothes because the guy carrying a lamp just tripped. No? Well -1 to Charisma for you due to scarring then."

Or, better yet, "Oh, did I say Laketown? Because that is what you remembered when you didn't know anything. Unfortunately, you find nothing there but upset the local guards and get thrown in jail. They have helped themselves to your gold."

As you're walking through the town you spot a young pickpocket. You covertly follow him back to his headquarters, which looks to be the head of the thieves guild. You introduce yourself, and immediately everyone there recognizes that you should be your leader. Just then the town guard rushes in and arrests everyone. Of course all there point to you as being their leader. You are now in jail, set to be hung tomorrow.

>you are in a locked cell with no possessions.
