489. Not allowed to inject the most expendable member of the team with the nanites I found that probably contain the memories of the alien chief engineer so that said PC can fix the main power plant.
Sounds like you need; Higher Purpose: For the Greater Good, and Callous.

I think it's a reference to the "Night of the Long Knives." Wikipedia link.

It is. I originally pitched it with my tongue buried in my cheek, but the moment I mentioned it the prospective GM paled and went "uh... nope!"

Something for my players in the upcoming Marvel Reboot Shadowguard game:

496. You are not to attempt to pacify the Soviet super-robot trashing New York City with Hostess® Fruit Pies! It doesn't have a mouth or taste buds, so it can't enjoy them.

497 Don't petrify a beholder that's uphill.

498 Slimes and oozes don't make great pets

498 Just because you have a Slime in a jar you can't claim to be packing an oozie.

499. May not play an anti paladin that honors Imoadae (Lawful good goddess of war) and Callistria (Chaotic neutral goddess of vengeance and lust) and join a good party, sincerely helping to defeat evil, even if there's a good backstory.

What if I offer Hostess Fruit Pies to a villain to get him to fight the robot?
