This is more or less how I play, on the rare times when I’m a player and not a GM. After a couple of minutes of people deciding what to do with the mysterious door, I tend to just kick it in. This is probably one of the reasons I end up playing meat shield types a lot. Also, I’d last about 2 minutes in the Tomb of Horrors. ;)
