I like it when my players ask for specific skill checks

We're playing a game, and I don't feel like some sort of social contract or immersion of the game is being besmirched when players use the terms the game rules use. Most of the time, it's pretty clear what they're going for anyway. If it's not clear, it's pre ...(read more)

Reminder for DMs: Don't nerf your players, buff your encounters
