But that's not the type of entitlement I'm talking about at all. Please finish reading before commenting. If we're going with "spot" as the example, I'm talking about the types of players who get their panties in a bunch when you handwave a perception test for the sake of ease, time, fun, and plot, because "what's the point in my perception being so much better than everyone else's if you're just going to handwaive it. It's your job to run the game the way the book tells you to."

Before the internet, the DM/GM was seen as a higher authority than the book. After the internet, lots of players (and I'd argue the worst kind of players) want to see the book as a higher authority than the DM/GM, with the DM/GM just serving as an intermediary so their games can be more homogenized with one universal experience for everyone.... like a video game.

>this is likewise a gross misunderstanding of a certain aspect of the rules: they provide a baseline that is meant to bind both players and the GM
>rules...bind both players and the GM
>rules bind the GM
Gonna have to respectfully disagree with you there champ.

I'd just have the portable hole get harmlessly teleported out the other end. If the players complain, just tell them "Look, the laws of physics are clearly different here, because magic is basically just another school of science, and you are adventurers in a world without the internet (and DEFINAETLY without the d20SRD,) where the most reliable source of information is a hand-copied thousand-year-old tome with missing pages, that you have to bargain with the wizardly librarian to even be able to touch. Having spent 15 years of your real life scrutinizing the metaphysical rules of the suggested setting for a specific edition of D&D, doesn't mean that your characters accurately know exactly how the metaphysics of THIS world work. If you took all that out of character knowledge, assumed it was universally true in all settings, and then tried to use that out-of-character knowledge together with your out-of-character engineering skill (or out-of-character ability to browse GITP and /tg/ for game breaking combos) to intentionally break my game, I don't know what you were expecting. Hope you enjoyed buying a shiny new bag of holding and portable hole for the BBEG while wasting your action in the process."
