I did play a session based on DC Comics last year. I played Man-Bat because I wanted to avoid speaking in character.

did you make that one?

ALSO how do dungeon masters cope when they make a gigantic enormous cavern filled with pre-planned imagination and the players only see like 1/4th of it, or miss the best demilich riddle or something

fuck that

I'd just make everyone sit down and listen to the story I made up

no, it's by a person named 'saving thrower'

and yeah prepping an elaborately prescribed set of stuff you expect the players to hone right in on is a bit of a theme referred to as railroading. if you ever get to spend any time as a player you might have a better grasp, as a dm, in how to keep things you really want to do with players of your own more fluid. your demilich riddle doesn't really need to be tied to any location, scenario, or npc but can be an option that stays floating in the background of your gigantic enormous cavern that has multiple tenuous points of contact with it. so no matter what stupid shit your players decide to do you might have a vague sense of how the riddle might slot in to it. your players dont know or care. literally anything i ever planned out that i might have foolishly expected my players to intuit in a prescribed way and explore on their own blew up in my face, so over the years i learned to create stuff with a better idea of how to implement it more broadly. and basically every time i ever had something blow up in my face and i had to aggressively improvise ended up being my most memorable experiences as a dm. i think if your players go into your enormous cavern and go straight to your demilich riddle it'll have a short term effect but it'll be way less memorable for you

its easy to think about in video game terms like when you're playing an old open world game and the draw distance in the game is really terrible and the trees and mountains looks like blobs of shit and theres very little detail beyond the area that your character is standing in. where the demilich riddle is isnt on your players minds because its not in front of them. they're interested in the sights and sounds and smells of whats in front of them. things sprout up and reveal themselves when they're within the players view and really dont need to exist except in that vague way mountains and trees and locations exists in the beloved open world 2006 rpg game of the year Oblivion

or just write a story!
