    * Pyrotechnics does not allow me to create a dragon firework that explodes somewhere over Bywater.
    ** And I'm not allowed to try and play "catch up" on halflings by stealing their stuff while they're watching the show.
    * "Smite Good" refers to alignment, not effectiveness.
    * Flash photography against the vampire in the party is not on.

    I believe he was talking about the points he was adding. But anyways, in our present situation, our de facto first rule in Shadowrun is :

    Plan B : Add 20kg of high explosives.

    It as worked spectacularly for the time being.

    * In Shadowrun, Plan A must never be use 20kg of high explosives. It derails the plot and any further plans from the DM.
    **Faking the explosion is, on the other hand, perfectly fine.

    *I am encouraged to role play dialog between myself and any folowers that I controll. However if the dialog sounds like this I am to be hit in the head with a bat, repeatedly.
    "Tangos in building ahead!. Ryans, and Macniel lay down covering fire from that defelade, Kowalski, breach the door, Sanovich and Montigleoni with me"
    "sir yes sir"
    "tangos at three o clock in the alley"
    "Kowalski Status report!"
    "Wizard three this is charlie six, you are cleared to engage"

    *I may not create or utilize a magical equivalent of walkie talkies
    **I may not speak in military phonetics on them
    ***I may not use them to direct artillery fire, call for reinforcements, or call in air strikes

    *I may use thrown weapons that explode, I may not use them to clear rooms prior to my entry
    ** I may not shout "Grenade!" or "Frag Out!" while doing so.

    *If I create another spec ops team equiped with automatic crossbows, vials of alchemist fire, magical communications gear, and trained in aquatic insertions I will be beated with a golf club.
    **No more D&D seal teams.

    *If I convince the other pcs to go along with me and create a party of awakened penguin artificers, I am awesome.
    **If their names are Skipper, Kowalski, Ricco, and Private, I will be sued for copyright infringement. and will still be awesome.

    ******Under no circumstances if the above rules are broken may he start a fight by hitting an opponent with a decisive unarmed strike channeling an appropriate Cure/Inflict spell while inspiring courage.

    *Charm Persons Stomatic Component is not a hand wave.

    *Neither is Suggestions.

    *Even if I have that skill trick that let's me disguise my casting.

    *If I have that skill trick, I may not know Suggestion or Charm person.

    *More so if there are Warforged in the party.

    *And I am absolutely not permitted to be able to silence either spell.

    *Ignoring the rules so that I can wave my hand and cast the spell and then inform the guards that these are not the warforged they are looking for and that I can go about my business will cause the guards to all suddenly have mind blank and the ability to auto detect what I'm doing, then to attack.
