    Ah, now I see. He and I both read IV as four both times. If it had been written I.V. it would've been clearer.

    * Not allowed to use the transport helicopter as a weapon in an assassination mission.
    ** Especially if it means we have to ram it into the hotel penthouse.
    * Yes, the hotel is on an artificial island in the middle of the ocean and there probably is a military harbor nearby. No, it does not mean we can go there to hijack any ship.
    ** That goes double for nuclear submarines with ballistic missiles.
    *** Aircraft carriers are still ships and I may not circumvent this rule by hijacking anything on the carrier.
    * Kidnapping the obvious enemy agents that are pretending to be a couple and tying them up in their own room is fine. Killing them afterwards is unnecessary. ESPECIALLY after finishing the mission.
    ** No, I cannot dispose of their corpses by chopping them up and dissolving the chunks in a bath tub filled with acid.
    *** No, I cannot have acid anyway.
    **** If I have to kill the enemy agents, I will do it with a lethal injection or other subtle way, not by shooting them with their own pistols.
    ***** Throwing the bodies out the window afterwards will not help us make it look like a suicide, especially when they have bullet holes in their heads and no weapons nearby.
    * Taking control of the security station and reprogramming the sentry guns to kill our targets is a good idea. Shooting the VIP that has to survive just to wound him and divert suspicion from the faction he represents is questionable.
    * If I play poker with the president of the North American Republic, I will not convince him to sell me fighter airplanes cheaply. Especially if the mission involves killing him the next day.
    * No more heavy drinking during assassination missions.



    * Not allowed to call our party the B Team.

    God, we had the best black ops EVER.

    So, looking at the thread titles that have received two votes:

    • Things I May No Longer Do While Playing IV: Discord is NOT the BBEG
    • Things I May No Longer Do While Playing IV: This Thread Powered by Decanters of Endless Water
    • Things I May No Longer Do While Playing JJJ: It Doesn't Work That Way


    Shall we commence voting, now that we've hit 50?

    My vote goes for "Discord is NOT the BBEG."

    *May not dig a shaft from the top of a mountain almost to a planet's mantle, create a diving bell with Decanters of Endless Water on the bottom and launch into orbit on a steam powered cannon.
    **May not use it as a base while I work with the party wizard to teleport large sheets of steel into orbit in order to make an interstellar ship.
    ***May not name said ship the spellship Enterprise, use alter self to give my gnome large ears, and start quoting the rules of acquisition.
    ****If I do I will have a run in with the Ferengi Commerce Authority who will have all my possessions confiscated, without returning me to the primary world in our campaign first.

    Kelb, that sentence contains both Glasya and Fierna. Even if he said, "in order to kill them and banish their souls forever," it'd manage to be unclean :p
