516. No matter how good a visual it is, I am not to use a circular metal shield to basically snowboard down the side of a step pyramid.

516-a: All visuals drawn from surfing, snowboarding, or surfboarding should be restricted to cases when that's what you're actually doing. Some leeway may be made for hover-boards.

520. Not encouraged to roll initiative against mushrooms
521. Not allowed to loose initiative to mushroom
522. Not allowed to loose initiative to flowers either
523. A petrified PC is not a toy.
523a. Not allowed to suggest the cleric use stone shape to improve petrified PC's appearance.
523b. Not allowed to encourage petrified PC's bird familiar to "do what comes naturally", even if it surely must want some revenge.

523d. Not allowed to use magical water to grow flowers on petrified PC.
523e. Not even while humming the Rabbit of Seville.
