    -when you insult the DM as he's about to roll for how many monsters attack the party? He's going to decide to just go with the max, and probably start it as an ambush. Protip, etc.
    -if the DM pulls out the Call of Cthulu D20 rulebook, things are not going to go as anyone expects. Not even for the DM.

    * Being a mute is a privilege, not a right.
    ** I am not allowed to give my character a snarky animal sidekick just so I can participate in conversations while playing a mute.
    *** If my formerly mute character has been tortured for several years, his first words should be plot significant. "Cheese" does not cut it.

    I know of one acronym I use often in futuristic RPG's, C.A.T.S. (Command and Tactical Support, a unit designation) and a C.A.T.S. M.E.O.W. is just too good to pass up.

    • I may not refer to my animal companion as "Mister Fluffykins" if he is larger than me.
    • Especially if my animal companion is female.
    • If I violate the previous rule, I may not complain if my character gets eaten.
    • I may not attempt to research "Spay/Neuter" as a first-level druid spell.
    • Not even if I attempt to justify it in-game as controlling animal populations to benefit nature overall.
    • If my DM is gullible enough to let me break the previous two rules, I will not use the spell on NPCs.
    • Especially not questgivers, kings, epic wizards, or other important figures.
    • Should the aforementioned powerful NPC roll a natural 1 on his Fortitude save and suffer the spell's effects, I should expect both myself and Mister Fluffykins to die horribly.

    Actually they all do, at least in 3.0. 3.5 edited the spell Mage Hand to not allow targets that weren't nonmagical inanimate objects, and it gave no save DC.

    I'll grant that your book trick is by RAW because dnd fails at physics forever, but the dagger attack is a very debatable thing your dm should never have allowed. Grabbing the nixie explicitly is disallowed. If a spell that doesn't normally call for a dc needs one, the dc isn't something you pull out of your butt. DC's for spells are easily calculable and your dm should never have to ask you for it. Mage Hand, being a 0 level spell, would have a dc of 10+relevant ability modifier+any other bonuses relevant (specialist, spell focus, etc). Unless you have an absurdly high number of miscellaneous bonuses, you're nowhere close to dc 25.

    Hm... You're right. I had been operating under limited information, as at the time that I was playing, I had never even opened the player's handbook. It was my first roleplaying experience and I was using a premade character with very little actual description of my abilites.

    To answer the DC question.
    I had 36 Int (+13), Spell Focus Transmutation, and Greater Spell Focus

    In defense of myself abusing the system. The character was over a decade ago, and I knew very little about the system at the time. I was a friend of a friend who was handed a 20th level character. Not entirely the greatest experience, as I had to figure out the entire system as we went along, and had to contend with a 20th level wizard.

    Fair enough. I just wanted to point out that most of the tricks you pulled are things that don't really work.

    but yeah, if you're playing a 20th level wizard with 36 int and you actually ever cast a 0th-level spell, odds are good that wierdness happens.
