Me "you come across a group of powerful wizard cultists. One of them pulls their hood to reveal his head is actually a giant eye. It's the very dangerous cult of vecna! Now, remember, there are only two of you and you're only level 3. What is your course of action?"
The ranger: "......"
The psion: "I roll to attack"
Me: ".. well this was a quick campaign."
@Fun Facts 101, sounds like my party. Level 1 we picked a fight with 2 prison wardens who were level 5 and 8. We somehow won but almost got party wiped.
@Robin the Tactician, I was once in a level 5 campaign and we just met a Solar (who are CR 21 btw) who was giving us a quest to take out some cultists or whatever, when suddenly the barbarian yells "BORED NOW" and charges the Solar with his greataxe, and the wizard decided to support him. Needless to say our party went from 5 to 3 real quick

As a DM, I have no mercy when I explain to the party on their insight check “You sense this wizard is very powerful and based on his age and what wares he has, he is a well ventured traveler.” And then they decide “let’s try to steal one of his magical items!”
Oh no... they killed the dog :(
Only bad DMs.
