    To paraphrase SMBC...

    "How dare you! With who were you cheating on me!? You ****ing bastard!!"

    High-WIS answer: "Baby, I love you! I'd never cheat on you!"

    High-INT answer: "You mean 'with whom'."

    The gods created the first organism, and set it into a suitable environment, which over billions of years and with the aid of divine presence, eventually emerged in their image. What's so hard about that?

    Yes, but it's doing it at level 1, when you have single digit hit points, that makes it inadvisable. Granted, the fact that that character hasn't miraculously died yet is a good part of the aforementioned worship, given the stupid things he's done.

    That said,
    *Grappling two ogres in order to throw them into a river of lava is something best done at high levels, not Level 1. (To be fair, those ogres couldn't roll above a 5 to save their lives...)

    Also, newBlazingAngel, is everything alright? That one's oddly specific, and a bit worrying.

    It's based off this writer who did something similar. I frankly have no idea who, could have even been a false memory on my part. I in no way plan to commit suicide and don't have the attention span to leave behind many home written game modules.

    It's the GM's fault, really, s/he failed to remember Evil Overlord item #26:

    No matter how attractive certain members of the rebellion are, there is probably someone just as attractive who is not desperate to kill me.

    * If big bad is a woman I have to remind the DM that I can use Smite Evil on anything, before she attempts to rape me.

    (I heard of a guy who did this once).

    * If male character is trying o buy their freedom by offering BBEG night with female character, I can reveal BBEG is gay and have him drag said male character to his bedchambers. However, making this face while doing so is crossing the line.
    ** So is quoting that picture.

    I once tried to deal with this by houseruling that Smite Evil can only be used with weapons capable of drawing blood.

    And it... well... you can probably already guess how that turned out.

    I had decided that the language of the Orcs in my campaign is Klingon (since I had a Klingon-English dictionary lying around. Don't ask.) They managed to capture an orc and started questioning him. He spat out answers in his guttural language. They thought he was threatening them, until one cast "Comprehend Languages" and found out he was simply asking where the bathroom was…
