Re: Things I May No Longer Do While Playing III: I May Not Iron Heart Surge Rule Zero
* The NPC guides assigned to get us to the adventure site are not then promoted to "trap specialists".
** Even if I have a high bluff and they a low wisdom.
*** The DM... er, kobolds... put a LOT of thought into that trap, and if I were to detect it, bypass it, or otherwise escape it, that would be rude.
**** I AM allowed to suggest that the barbarian bypass the door and greataxe his way in through the wall, since apparently a trap causing the entire building to collapse is sensitive to that sort of thing.
* Slippers of Spider Climbing are a privilege, not a right, and may be revoked if abused.
** Anything that requires holding a mini in midair above the monster, or forcing the DM to think in three dimensions, counts.
*** Attempting to invoke the DM's stupid "but you didn't actually say you were looking up, so you're surprised regardless of what you rolled" rule against the monsters also constitutes abuse.
**** Holding my breath is also a privilege, not a right, and may be revoked if abused.
* Not allowed to defeat a locust swarm with a smoke stick.
** Nor a centipede swarm with a Create Water spell.
*** Not allowed to use Create Water to increase the size class of a water elemental in order to get more XPs.
**** Water elementals are NOT hurt by Purify Food and Drink.
* Rangers may not select "Box Text" as a favored terrain. (They get favored terrain in addition to favored enemy in Pathfinder)
Alstroemeria in Thrair's War of the Final Whisper
GM of A Thin Blue Line
Me: How crazy it gets depends on how much expertise, adroitness, and finesse you navigate the current craziness. Stick the landing and the whole thing could be wrapped up in a bow tomorrow.
Player: In other words... we're pretty much doomed, right?
Me: You're not entirely doomed yet. Now I'll just be sitting back in the corner here, cackling at your next few decisions.
I'm not an evil GM! Honest!
