Comic #1153

1 Lambert: Come on. There has to be a secret dwarven passage under these mountains.
2 GM: Even if there was, you're not dwarves, and it's secret, so you don't know about it anyway!
3 Kyros: Aha! That implies there is one! Let's spend a few weeks searching for it!
4 {GM holding head in frustration}

Just in case you thought that once we got to the Orcrift Mountains we'd manage to cross them within any sort of reasonable time.

2015-07-20 Rerun commentary: You really need to couch your descriptions in uncertain terms when GMing a roleplaying game.

In this case the correct thing for the GM to have said would have been: "You don't see any passage - secret, dwarven, or otherwise. Oh, and you're starting to freeze in the snow."
