How is this DM in this situation going to have me do this? IS it going to work the same this time as it did last? Are they going to say no because it's a second Tuesday and someone on TikTok has convinced them people can't fall down on Second Tuesdays? Oh good, you just wasted a turn.
Bad dming is instilling a table culture thats not just afraid to just talk these things out, but will have to repetitively do so every single time.
My group has an unwritten running list of random things we can do when we want to just go completely off the cuff in whatever game we're playing, and that all just built up over time.
A table shouldn't be relitigating intimidating the peasant every time the party passes through a new town, and when there is something genuinely new to hash out, there shouldn't be this culture where you're arguing yourself out of doing it out of fear for the whims of the DM.
