    Some rules I intend to make a certain male player of mine agree to:
    2981.) You are not allowed to play a gnome sorceress with huge boobies.
    2981b) Especially if said boobies become instrumental in her spellcasting.
    2982) You know what? You're not allowed to play anything with the phrase "huge boobies" attached to their description.
    2982b) Variants thereof - including but not limited to "massive mammaries", "knock-out knockers", "bulging sails" and "tits resembling over-inflated basketballs" - are also forbidden.

    2983: I may no longer enter into RAW debates on the forums and then bring them to my RL group, taking devil's advocate just to kill time and play the bait and switch on my dm so he'll accept the ruling I really want pushed through.
    Best. Thread. Ever!

    2984. Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow! is not a spell, furthermore, it does not make it snow, not even if I'm in fact the druid.
    2985. No, not even if I chant it in latin.
    2986. Or any other language the DM doesn't know.
    2987. Each time I say something in a language different from English I must have a translation ready for the DM.
    2988. Elven wine is not in fact vinegar mixed with water, regardless of what my dwarven cooking teacher said.
    2989. Water Walk does not allow me to walk over elven wine, even though its technically water in its alcohol content.
    2990. If a succubus kidnaps a party member, offering to tape the encounter is not the appropriate course of action.
    2991. Nor is reassuring his/her girlfriend/boyfriend that it will be a sex-ed lesson at worst.
    2992. The fact that I have INT 19 does not mean I can start thinking of infinitely small pieces of something and invent calculus.
    2993. While Oil of Vitriol and Aqua Fortis are alchemical substances, mixing them carefully on a freezing bathtub is not alchemy.
    2994. My character cannot be named Alfred, nor is he to invent modern chemistry based on the discovery of trinitrotoluene by performing alchemy.
    2995. A tesla coil is not something I can make with my Dungeoneering check, despite the word neering being in it and it involving an Engine.
    2996. I cannot call a black clump of doughy materials Rogue 2.0 because it can open doors and blow up traps.
    2997. I must mention it being black powder to the DM before we reach the dungeon.
    2998. Charcoal, fertilizer and sulfur are of limits to any character I make... ever.
    2999. My character can no longer have ranks in craft and diplomacy, running a business is not what my level 12 character should be doing when the world is near its end and he has the McGuffin of world saving atop of Ominous Mount.
    3000. Hegelian philosophy should not be presented to celestial creatures, we don't want Baator to refill.

    3009. I am not allowed to use my Luck domain daily reroll on my hit points for leveling up.
    3010a. My holy symbol may not be a fifth of vodka.

    3011a. My dwarf cleric may not adventure schlozzled, inebriated, tipsy or any other word that means drunk.
    3011b. I also may not pronounce my spells as if my cleric were any of the above. Lay Sliving!
    3012. The NPC's are not just "potential enemies", and I may not target them with flame strikes, especially the commoners.

    3013. I am no longer allowed to taunt the DM in character.
    3013a. If I do so I get what's coming for/to me.
    3014. Luring guards into darkened areas in hopes of getting them eaten by a grue, will instead get me eaten by a grue.
    3014a. Even if I have grue repellant on me.

    3015. may not reference the bible.
    3015a. especially not by naming my cleric Jesus.
    3015b. doubly so if I take leadership and gain a cohort named Judas.
    3015c. if I do so it will end with my character being crucified.
    3015d. If I do the above I won't bribe the paladin with booze to resurrect me .
    3015e. If all that comes to pass I will not then reveal that my cleric was plotting the destruction of the evil empire we are in for irony.

    3022: When another player complains that I am min/maxing, I am not allowed to respond with "Your character is actually built way better than mine, you can start overshadowing me any time you decide to stop playing like a 6 month old monkey with ADD and start putting some thought into your actions for a change."
    3022a: Even if it is true.
    3022b: Even if I have proven this point multiple times over the past few years.
    3022c: Saying "L2P N00b!!!" isn't any better.

    3023: Uttering the line "like that is enough to kill me" causes the damage source to grow and multiply until it IS enough to kill me.

    3024: My character is not allowed to heroically and epically sacrifice himself to save the villain from the rest of the party.
    3024a: Even if said "villain" is much more of a good guy than anyone else on the party and my character knows it.

    3025: My character's (actual, not faked, and permanent) death cannot be a part of any of my long-term plans.

    3026 May not destroy an entire plane to kill a kolbold.
    3026a even punpun.
    3026b mostly because that won't work

    3027 my minions may not out number the followers of all three major gods combined

    3028 may not sell my nemesis into slavery for a copper peace
    3028a especially not a sex slave
    3028b repeatedly, every time we meet.
    3029 when the chaotic evil cleric of the god of destruction takes her under his wing I shall not continue trying to sell her
    3030 may not instead strip her naked and use her as a distraction to get sneak attack.
