220: When a portal to Hell has been opened, I should not immediately start pelting old musty shoes through it.
221: After killing Hells doorman and the party is trying to figure out what to do with his stuff and pondering what happens when you kill a demon in hell, I should not attempt to filch his clearly evil bastard sword.
221a: This is doubly true if you're character has a history of taking unholy items...
221b: And when one of the other party members is a Vatican priest/diplomat/weaponmaster/psychopath who already considers you an abomination.

222) I am not allowed to create an alternate history in which the Industrial Revolution was actually a Magical Revolution, and computers are actually spirits of knowledge, them base the entire scenario on the fact that "viruses" which "corrupt" computer programs can become strong enough to materialize as demons.

Actually, by the time they materialize, a big ol' sword (or perhaps a Metatronic Generator flavored as a Gauss Gun) would do equally well.

Because it takes IT away from secular materialists and hands it over to the religious?

223) In a Supers game, "I have normal human strength" is a perfectly good reason not to chuck cars around. "One of my sponsors is an insurance company" just gets funny looks from the GM.
