    lol, wow, your players need to learn to not get so attached to their characters.

    * I may not, as a mid-20's college male, set my campain in a world I homebrew in extensive detail based on a popular female-targeted tv series I am a rabid fan of in order to try to attract girls to my group.
    ** Doing so in order to give myself and my heterosexual male friends and I a chance to write our own self-insert fanfiction is sad and pathetic, but allowable.
    *** Not keeping the above rated pg-13 or nicer is banned, however.
    **** Doing point 2 in a group that's already gender-mixed may be acceptable, provided I'm not just doing it in order to impress my crush.
    ***** Better yet, pretend this post doesn't exist. I am not allowed to base my campaigns on any tv show. Just to be safe.
    Best. Thread. Ever!

    But reasonably common anyway. There is no clear rule that they are always exact initialisms.

    "Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation": LASER or LABSEOR?
    "Radio detection and ranging": RADAR or RDAR?
    "Completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart": CAPTCHA or CAPTTTTCAHA?
    "Special executive for counter-intelligence, terrorism, revenge, and extortion": SPECTRE or SEFCITRAE?
    The problem with this is that (1) it's okay to drop the little words, like "and" or "by", and (2) it's also okay to use multiple letters from one word if your acronym would be unpronounceable.

    So LASER, RaDAR, and SPECTRE actually follow the rules, since "counter-intelligence" is one word. CAPTTTCHA, however, does have a problem.

    If you are counting the compound word "Counter-intelligence" as one word, then you should also count the compound words from the original MEOW as single words as well. You can't have it both ways.

    I may not ask for a quiet corner in the Temple of Pelor to cast Desecrate to boost my Animate Dead spell. They will be upset with me, even though we're ostensibly on the same side.

    As a DM:

    *If you call for an unnecessary spot check to heighten tensions, you can expect that a natural 20 will be rolled.
    **Thou shalt have a good poker face when the PCs interpret the subsequent "You don't see anything" as "Egads, something invisible, kill it with all your high level spells."
    ***Be consistent. Thus, you can now expect your PCs to cast Glitterdust on a torch to make a gout of flame at least once per session.

    (Yay for the most recent gaming session!)
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. ~ Terry Pratchett

    People don't *live* on the Disc anymore than, in less hand-crafted parts of the multiverse, they live on balls. Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they *live* elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the center of their heads. ~Terry Pratchett again

    * If the player is in the Aldhaven docks district at night, their subsequent death to knives in the dark is 100% justified.

    @V We did warn everyone in Aldhaven to stay out of the Docks at night. If you ever read the obituaries post, we point out explicitly those who died in the docks... at night...

    Similarly, if I am told, "stay out of (insert place here)" and the first thing I do is go there, I will be rolling a new character. Preferably with a higher Wisdom score.
