While I normally do not like things where animals might have gotten hurt, this one brings back memories…

Long ago, there was a gnome Illusionist/Thief who shall remain nameless… While adventuring in the module S1 – Tomb of Horrors, the party encountered a room with figures holding up colored disks painted on a walls. Our stalwart party, having arrived via one of those disks from another room (some were illusion-hidden portals to other locations in the tomb), looks around and set a world record at conclusion-jumping ‘Oh! Those disks are portals’.
One was up and out of reach for short people, so they boost the aforementioned gnome up and through….only they weren’t all portals, some were just colored disks on the wall…and no one (including the Illusionist/thief) checked first. The conversation went something like this…
‘Hey <redacted>! We’ll boost you up, and you can check the other side!’
*IMPACT WALL WITH HEAD*
*FALL TO FLOOR*
Apparently that Gnome reincarnated as a cat! 🙂
