84. May not as a GM make a anyplace Named Hazzerd. It most certainly may not be a local Duchy.

85. I cannot make a character code named "The Flying Scotman." Especially if he flies and wears a kilt.

Or allow the local royalty to appoint a pig as a local leader.

Any suspicious-looking cloud could actually be a disguised Flying Carpet upon which Mungo had mounted a heavy-duty Staff of Mind Control in a light ballista frame; the only defense against the Flying Mind Control Staff was a skullcap made of gold foil, which we were more than happy to sell to the other PCs at cost of materials plus a small markup to accommodate the labor that went into the manufacture...

The problem for the GM was that every time she tried to incorporate one of our creations in her game, we would abandon that particular sub-plot and come up with a new one. She finally gave up and just told us to cease and desist after my buddy (a dwarf sorcerer) and I (a half-orc bard) managed to create opposing religions inspired by differing interpretations of a mythological figure that we had based upon Elvis, then set them against each other in a religious war that split the party into fighting on opposing sides.
This just made beer come out my nose! ROFLMAO!!!

86. I am not allowed to study up on theoretical physics for any character concept after I blew up half of new york with the man who runs at the speed of light by arguing any non light object that goes light speed would cause a nuclear reaction.

87. I must not carefully confuse Captain Lethbridge-Stewart (son of the more famous Brigadier) into believing that a professional assassin is the latest incarnation of The Doctor. However, once I have done this, I am permitted to keep it going to avoid being shot by both parties.

88. D&D 3rd - My L14 Wizard does not need to take Improved Initiative solely to prevent the party fighter from ever getting to do anything. Killing the monsters from 900' away by using Maximized Fireball to force 'Save or Die' Fort saves has already made him sad.

89. While DMing D&D Encounters - If the party ever asks the names of three human NPC's who are unnamed in the module I may never again have them introduce themselves by saying "Hi, I'm Larry; this is my brother Darrell; and this is my other brother Darrell."

#90 No longer am I allowed to come to Role Playing parties in a loin cloth and my mom's bra going by the name of Brahzan the Barbarian.
