Whenever the GM gives you an incomplete or vague answer, assume that something is going to come eat you.

Letting players make their own characters can be dangerous at times, especially if you have someone that knows the rules very well, because it is possible to create an OP character within the rules, so on one hand you cant really punish the player for making an OP character but on the other hand you want to keep everyone else happy....

Minis- Miniature figurines used to show placement of characters and creatures

Summon Lightning- a spell that... well... summons lightning.

GM- The boss of the game.

OP- stands for Overpowered

A truly evil GM gives not a vague answer, but makes you come to your own wrong conclusion, just to mess with you. Making your players do fake spot and listen checks just for moving shadows and creaking floorboards in the next room can make some incredibly tense gameplay without ever having a real threat.

Also, the answer "You don't see anything out of the ordinary" if they roll higher than a 20 on a spot check makes any genre savvy, metagaming player completely paranoid of traps and hiding rogues.

Its D&D and Movie logic. If you don't see a corpse then it isn't dead.

Even if you see a corpse it's no guarantee that it's dead.

And even if it's dead, there's no guarantee it won't come back to life.

...or was that comic book logic?

Now they just don't even know in which direction they have to run.
