316: don't get the new players used to a (new) playing system by dropping them near creatures that are usually 'just monsters' (unintelligent, destructive, maneaters) then get them arrested and hauled off to a biased, bribable court for killing the 'monster'.

That sounds like a serious case of "The GM forgot to do any kind of exposition or pregame presentation".

Well, there was a pyramid article that talked about Sorcery Levels or something like that, which equated directly to Tech Levels, and the GM has freedom to decide whether spells of a given SL exist in his game. For the moment, assuming he does permit it, you're still effectively SL 10 rather than TL 10. That might be splitting hairs, but who knows, your GM might actually treat the two subjects differently. For example, he might balk at the idea that 'technology' has any part in chimerization.

That "GM" has the habit of dropping us through a portal in our 'come as you are' gear - one of us made a lucky role and was at the target range with ammo purchase and her just repaired gun in hand.

Your GM would hate me. My job used to entail wearing body armor and carrying a loaded weapon for up to 70 hours a week.

That "GM" probably has a habit of losing players from their games, too...

I could comment about this, but there aren't any polite words about the GM that offer the same level of understanding of my opinion of him as the ones that would get me an infraction.

I've found through these threads that I'd like several of the players, and a few of the GMs.

317. The guy being a real not die no matter what immortal with fast regeneration does not justify me selling his blood and organs without permission to shady wizards for fast cash

318. With that said selling his testicles as asphodeics is going way too far.

Never used it, but I considered having a character with those traits and crafting skills specializing in bone carving.
