13. I am not to give the GM Ideas.

14) Every suicide plan made in rhetoric is not to be taken as a challenge.
15) When the party kills my pet dire-snake, I'm not to respond by hunting down a new one the following day.
16) Dire Snakes are not suitable artillery munitions, regardless of effectiveness.
17) Sitting down to kippers is not an appropriate action after being assailed by 3 werewolves. The appropriate action is to clean up all the blood.
18) When the rest of the party returns home, "I made breakfast" is not the answer they're looking for to the question of "What the hell happened here?!"
19) Personal plans made during guerrilla tactics against an enemy fort shouldn't hinge on casually making a critical success to parry the first scorpion bolt.*
20) My character is an 8 foot tall, ST 25 half-giant. He is NOT a trapdoor spider.
21) [related] Relying on the enemies' fear of windows is not a valid battle strategy.

*It worked by the way.

22. When the GM keeps reminding you that you're about to face a trained military invasion force, you are not allowed to be surprised when they use actual military tactics against you.

23. Also, shut up and listen to the paladin who has training in military tactics so that you can survive the invading military force.

24. "He has evasion" is not a valid reason to throw a fireball at the bad guys that will catch the party Scout, Paladin, and the NPC Samurai ally in the blast.

25. Especially when the NPC Samurai doesn't have evasion.

26. You are also not allowed to be surprised when the NPC Samurai goes down from the fireball after knowing he was low on health.

27. If you break from the group to take on a platoon of archers by yourself and loose 90% of your hit points in one round of combat, your resposne should not be "I can still do this!"

digoraccoon: I have to ask. Were you the Paladin, the fireball-tossing mage, or the GM?

28) I can't drop the HMG to charge the 11 foot tall mutation with my sword just because my sword can get through its armor better.
29) Definitely not when the demo 'expert' /cough/ is using anti-tank missiles on it.

30) “Bottomless Dungeon” does not mean it's a pants-free adventuring environment.

Yeah...my last gaming group was guilty of thinking along those lines.

31. I am not to break the GM with Awesome by snagging the target from a tractor beam as he's passing by using nothing but the Force and a slew of By Your Powers Combined Aid Another checks.

I am the GM. I was pretty dismayed at the mage's actions, but he certainly knows how to play "Chaotic".


32. I am not allowed to create BBEGs based on My Little Pony's "Cutie Mark Crusaders"
33. I'm also not allowed to pick out the party's theme song (Who knew they wouldn't like PeeWee's Playhouse?)

34. In future, it should be noted that 'dungeon crawl' is never to be taken as synonymous with 'dungeon theme party'.
