    *I am never, ever allowed the use of the spells Grease and Animate Rope, in combination or otherwise, ever again. Ever.
    *In an associated and perfectly justified ruling, bosses are not to be defeated by sapping their will to live and then removing their organs from their still-weeping husk.
    *In an associated, perfectly justified and pre-emptive ruling, this also goes for mooks of all kinds, NPCs in general, and, look, just anything that it would be possible to defeat in such a manner.
    *And anything that it isn't possible to defeat in such a manner, just in case.

    *If the DM introduces a powerful NPC who is going to stop us from being killed by the hordes of ravenous demons we've drawn to ourselves, we are not to turn them to stone.
    *We are certainly not to use the resulting statue to fight off the demons anyway.
    * "We didn't know it was going to be turned to stone when we activated the Rod of Wonder" is a condemnation, not a legitimate excuse.

    *Animal Husbandry checks are not the solution to every problem, even if I am playing a character based on 8-Bit Theatre's Red Mage.
    *While they are, factually speaking, the beginning of every problem for our enemies, this is no more acceptable.
    *Animal Husbandry isn't even a skill.
    *No, you cannot refluff your Bardic Knowledge checks like that.
    *Nor your Dark Knowledge checks.
    *Animal Husbandry is banned in all forms, for the sake of the DM's mental well-being.

    Of course not! They should have to make it through several rooms worth of puzzles and traps before they find the ring gates.
    Hurray for Portal.

    *I am not allowed to make a level one character that carries an entire party full of level fives.
    *I won't fend off an entire strike force of orcs with one non-damaging spell again.
    *The party does not appreciate my paladin leading them into a death trap simply by virtue of being too LG.


    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.

    The party wakes up underground, in a massive library, with no clue where they are or how they got there.

    Unless you're level is very high or your weapon has the fission quality, you won't do any damage. The strong nuclear force gives them a high D.R

    *Cannot wield a natural weapon that isn't attached to me.
    *No, duct tape will not let me do that.
    *Cannot make a mecha out of the monster's bisected corpses without relevant ranks in nechrotech.
    *Cannot rocket jump using a fireball.
    *Cannot sticky jump using a delayed-blast fireball.
    * Cannot wield 3 swords in each hand and one in my mouth.
    *this dos not mean I can weild 6 swords in one hand and three in my mouth.
    *Jotengrip be dammed, this still applies to battleaxes and all other weapons.

    * I will be rewarded for having the character quirk "draws his sword at the first sign of trouble" in Mousguard, but I should not expect similar results if I try this in shadowrun.
    *Especially if I do this in respone to a troublesome letter.
    *Cannot perform a single-stroke battle with an owl.
    * Not to scream out CRAAAAAAAAAB! if we are just encountering a normally-sized one.
    *Even if we're mice and so it's 5 times our size and ravenous.
    * If we enter a tunnel system, and come to a fork in the path, we cannot use the markings from our pathfinder session to find the right way.
    *This also means we cannot end up in a crossover with them.
    *Especially not as the slime rats from the last session that were kicked and exploded.
    * If the young hotblooded mouse charges into the light, he cannot blame me when he end out sailing through the air into the ocean.
    *It is not in the Nature of a mouse to be able to bisect a serpent in one strike, redwall be damned.
    *Cannot play as a mice who was cursed by a war god to have a fit of rage that killed his family.
    *Perticually if this same mouse is white-furred with read streaks going over his eye, and who wields two fish-hooks in battle.
    *…for frik’s sake, YOU CANNOT BE MOUSE KRATOS!
    *The mousguard rules state it takes 20000 mice to succeed in killing one black bear. This does not mean I can achieve the same thing using 2000000 ravenous tadpoles.
    *It is beyond the ability of mouse society to develop a nuclear bomb for the purpose of killing bearthulhu.
    *not to refer to bears as bearthulhu.
    *Even if one is capable of eating the entire mouselands and dark rituals are held in order to plactate them.
    * No matter what the scale rules indicate, cannot fit a mouse fortress on the back of a moose.

    Well, of course not! Atoms come in swarms, so they're immune to weapon damage anyway.

    On the other hand...
