    Are the attacks in-game or IRL?
    Yes.
    So you need to generate gunpowder in less than 6 seconds in order to produce it in game?
    If I wish to do it inside of a combat round, without provoking attacks of opportunity, yes.
    So, if I need to demonstrate that a lightning bolt does indeed turn water into Hydrogen and Oxygen, do I need to acquire a river and a lightning bolt in those 6 seconds? Or are the 6 seconds only after acquiring all materials my PC already has?

    Or do you mean explaining the theory? In such a case, up to how technical can I get?
    You can explain your theory as much as you like before the DM starts throwing books at you. You get whatever materials are available in the house/shop/school you play at. Not allowed to leave the building to get more. If you DO have access to a high-powered electric generator and some water, then yes, you can pull that off, but need to do it within 6 seconds if you don't want to provoke.

    Generally, it is considered bad manners to attempt an action that requires more time to explain than it does to execute.

    * When the DM says the field of battle contains any weapon in the PHB, that does not mean I can take all of them.
    ** Especially if it means looting small sized Dwarven Urgoshes and Orc Double Axe's.
    *** I no longer allowed to use the PHB weapon list as a check list of what weapon I used to kill things.
    **** My character does not have the title "Doorslayer" "Doorbane" or anything related to smashing doors down.
    ***** If I am an evil kobold paladin, it is assumed I am not a fanatical worshiper of Pelor.
    ****** No longer allowed to dodge bluff checks by using logic.

    * When the water orc barbarian is the voice of reason in the party, there is a problem.
    ** No longer allowed to commandeer an airship and force it to ram two other airships as a means of distraction.
    *** Shouting profanities at the bound elemental is not the best idea.
    **** Airships are destroyed, not killed or slain.

    * As an artificer, I'm not allowed to forget that I have spell scrolls, especially if they could have ended the previous fight in one round.

    * If I am the party wizard, my first reaction to city guards asking us to help them is not to teleport away.

    * No longer allowed to play a bard that is useless to the party (must have been drunk when I built that character)

    well, technically that's what the critical failure is for... If it works, it works by raw and blame the bad railroading skills of the DM. Also did I hear phat lewt and lots of XP?

    *I may not abuse the critical succes and critical failure rules just because I can
    **No, not even If my schtick is being a lucky bastard
    ***not even with the luckstealer, fortune's friend and fatespinner PrC's, the luck domain, surge of fortune etcetera...

    * Trying to rob a party member does not count as joining the campaign.
    ** Even if they robbed you first.
    * Trying to bull-rush a party member into shark-infested water does not count as joining the campaign.
    ** Even if they are a size category larger than you.
    * Trying to Turn a party member's undead familiar does not count as joining the campaign.
    ** Even if you are not a divine caster.

    Me: How crazy it gets depends on how much expertise, adroitness, and finesse you navigate the current craziness. Stick the landing and the whole thing could be wrapped up in a bow tomorrow.
    Player: In other words... we're pretty much doomed, right?
    Me: You're not entirely doomed yet. Now I'll just be sitting back in the corner here, cackling at your next few decisions.

    I'm not an evil GM! Honest!

    *It is in poor taste to use Decanters of Endless Water for purposes other than drinking, washing things, and occasionally knocking down scrawny goblins.

    **Perpetual motion machines, limitless clean energy, hovercraft, orbital rockets, aquaforming, siege engines, steampunk railguns, and other technological marvels may be natural consequences of a society capable of mass-producing Decanters of Endless Water, but I am not allowed to create any of them.
    ***Not even as an artificer.

    *Making the logical conclusion that it would be possible to make a Decanter of Endless Fire simply by changing the mini-gate's destination is frowned upon.

    *Decanters of endless [x], where x is any substance associated with a given elemental or demi-elemental plane of the D&D planescape, are frowned upon in general.
    **Special consideration goes into the frowning upon of Decanters of Endless Gasoline, Whiskey, Oil, Grease, Lube, Gunpowder, Tiny Shards of Glass, Bees, Spiders, Scorpions, Dragons, Sewer Water, Urine, Lasers, and/or Gold.

    *Calling my character Farren d'Hite is fine; calling myself Mr. Farren Hite is not.
    **Even if he is burning through the skies at 200 degrees, he cannot travel at the speed of light.
    ***He will not make a super-sonic man out of you
    ****No, not even with the right acquired template.

    Edit:

    *My character should refrain from "taking samples" of all of the victims of a crazed cannibal "for science," even during a time of widespread starvation
    **In front of the party Paladin

    *When the DM claims that something is physicaly and magically impossible, I may not take this as a challenge

    *likewise I may not consider any statement along the lines of "this is the craziest plan i've ever heard" when not refering to one of my plans as a challenge

    *if my character drives cthullu insane, I have done something horribly horribly wrong (read as right)

    *as a barbarian with an int of 5, I may not come up with plans involving multivariable calculus in any way (with the exception of using a multivariable calculus textbook as an improvised weapon)
    **As a barbarian with an int of 5 I should not be intelegent enough to come up with a plan in the first place
    ***in fact that character should not know what the word plan means
    ****I may not have characters with an int of less than 10



    *if I am not a wizard or artificer, actually even if I am a wizard or artificer, my plan may not involve nuclear fusion

    *If the entire list of equipment for my plan to defeat the BBEG calls for a paperclip, two ball bearings, a rubber band, sovereign glue, duct tape, an axe handle, three sewing needles, and a fork. And it works. I will be beated relentlessly with the DMG.


    * I may not use magic Items to approximate walkie talkies
    **I may never again use the line "This is Sierra Echo Alpha Lima Six reporting Bravo Bravo Echo Golf and 20 Tangos in grid square, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Requesting Foxtrot India Romeo Echo Bravo Alpha Lima Lima. Over." in a D&D session. Even if it makes sense with the "walkie talkies"
    ***I must stop assuming anyone else in my group understands the Military Alphabet
