    You gotta' let me know, are we human,
    Or are we dancers?
    My signs are vital, my hands are cold,
    And I'm on my knees, begging for the answer,
    Are we human, or are we dancers?

    646) Just because I know the chemical composistion, mixing procedures, and proper handling protocalls of several improvised explosive devices, doesn't mean any of my characters do. Reguardless of Int score, or Craft ranks.
    Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me.

    Granted, if there was a win to be had from this thread, Choco won it back at #157--but there might be a runner-up prize!

    652. The protocol officer will not announce your entry to the throne room in the same manner in which Jeremy Clarkson introduces the Stig, even if any of them apply to your character.
    653. If the DM did not have the foresight to ban 'royal sexual favors' as a reward for rescuing the heir, the DM will have the good grace not to retroactively add a spinster minotaur with a library of bodice-ripper romance novels to the royal family.
    654. However, the DM can and will retroactively remove both the Flaw: Unquenchable Fertility and any merits bought with same.
    655. On an unrelated note, the phrase 'royal sexual favors' is stricken with a curse and no longer audible to anyone with any excuse to be in, or scrying upon, the throne room.

    656. It is not necessary to roleplay sanity loss when playing Call of Chthulu in board game form.
    657. Yes, from this small sample size roleplayed sanity loss corresponds with rolling lots of 6s--no, we are not spending two gaming evenings setting up double-blind roleplaying-while-rolling-d6s trials in order to get a usable sample size.

    658. You cannot loot the bard's amphibracer. You certainly cannot equip it.
    659. You do not need to roll UMD against the DM's rhetorical device.

    661: Yes, you have a class ability that ignores sizes unless it would be advantageous for grappling purposes. You are not allowed to use this to be fine sized and pin the gargantuan boss down (even though the mechanics allow).

    cool Re: 2000 things I'm not allowed to do in an RPG

    670. The list of things my wizard is not allowed to enchant includes (but is not limited to) the following items:

    brassieres (I personally think it would be great to have a bra that could be used to cast "Magic Missile"!)

    socks (I don't know why.)

    wigs (I still think a "wig of the Medusa" is a grand idea, but no-one else seems to concur.)

    bagpipes (I'm told that a homunculus-type critter that has its origin in a set of bagpipes is unacceptable. I feel this is entirely irrational. A wizard with an animated set of bagpipes as a familiar would be quite an asset to the group.)

    tobacco pipe (C'mon! Wouldn't you love to huff a fireball out of an old Meerschaum pipe? That would be classy!)

    dolls (This at least should be considered, I feel, because it's a folkloric tradition! I mean, Vasilissa's doll, for crying out loud! Just because my doll happens to look more like Charlie Mcarthy ...)

    chewing tobacco (My DM maintains that a "chaw of eloquence" is a contradiction of terms. I maintain that it is irony. Besides, remember Marine Boy and his "oxy-gum"? Why does it have to make sense?)

    shoe laces (Now here's a versatile item!)

    teapot (Merlin had one in The Once and Future King! Why can't I? It can serve tea to my friends and spout hot water all over my enemies. I promise it will be nothing like Mrs Potts!)

    Umbrella (Long before this method of transportation was popularized by cinematic classics such as Mary Poppins and Totoro Father Christmas used an umbrella to travel on Christmas Eve! I think that's in Belarus, but I might be mistaken. At any rate, it's no more a cross-cultural feature than a magic carpet or throwing stars, which are widely accepted, and *not* an anachronism!)

    doorbell (In real life I often wish I had a "doorbell of disintegration" that could identify and dispose of encyclopedia salespersons and their ilk. You'd think that would get some support, but nooooooooooo ...)

    chamber pot (My DM does not even want to admit that these items even exist, much less that they can be enchanted. I'd love to bewitch the chamber pot of a certain rival, so that it sings Don't Cry For Me Argentina every time it's being used. Loudly. And then discuss the stock exchange. If things take too long, it ends by playing the Lawrence Welk theme and blowing bubbles.)

    I don't understand the objections whatsoever. My desires are so modest, and so relevant to the momentum of the plot.

    671. If my drunken character is hitting on another PC, it is not appropriate for me (as a player) to grab her player's thigh. Especially when I don't really know that player very well.

    672. In a setting where guards are the equivalent of cops, I will not kill every guard I come across with wanton abandon.

    673. If I ignore Rule #672, I will not act surprised when lots of people want to kill me.
