    *If in any game where I have nothing under +25 in a social skill at lvl 9, I will not complain when the rest of the party attacks me without warning while I attempt to talk to them about "accidentally" using prestigitation to soil a party members hair while they sleep.

    (The person in question was a girl who was playing a teenage royal half-sea-elf... not a good idea, especially when we hadn't had a good combat for an entire session)

    **As the groups reputation builds I may not request "Open Negotiations" after asking the DM that my reputation would built as the "Silver Tongued Master of Persuasion" and expect not to be attacked on sight.

    Characters in my game are no longer allowed to:
    * Take ranks in Craft (Bodies)
    ** Use Craft (Bodies) to craft a tree made of corpses
    *** Use the heads of said bodies as fruit on the corpse tree

    A certain player in my group is no longer allowed to:
    * Have ideas
    ** Share these ideas with the rest of the party
    *** If he speaks, he is on time out.
    **** Have a dagger that in one hit does more damage than the party fighter and barbarian both doing full attacks.
    ***** Possess, craft, or even know about, Lyres of Building

    I am not allowed to:
    * Accidentally make a gnomish Hitler
    ** Even if we happen to be fighting Jewish stereotypes
    *** Especially if my primary form of attack is bombs that incinerate and gas everything

    I am no longer allowed to ruin the game by accidentally "figuring out" the "plot twist" (which was actually lifted from an old movie) halfway through the first paragraph of the DM's introductory monologue in the first session.
    * Especially if the plot twist happens to be lifted from Zardoz.

    I may no longer convince other players to make dwarven wizards who happen to be twins and fistbump before every fight while shouting "Thunder Twin Powers, activate!"
    *Even if it IS a Forgotten Realms campaign.
    ** ESPECIALLY if it's a Forgotten Realms campaign.

    The Elemental Plane of Water is explicitly endless in all directions, and therefore has negligible (not quite zero though due to being slightly non-uniform) net gravity at all points.

    wouldn't using strikes instead of full-attacks be counterproductive if you're using multi-weapon fighting?
