    In a Silver Age Sentinels game...

    When the Strength focused bruiser character picks up a small car to use as a weapon, my Telekinetic cannot throw a semitruck telekinetically from across the map to crush the zombies so he can focus on the BBEG. This causes hurt feelings.

    Claiming that I did this to support him does not help.

    Especially if I could have just used my invisibility to avoid the zombies.

    After the bruiser loses the melee with the BBEG, I may not go beat the BBEG for him using a combination of Regeneration, Invisibility, and Telekinesis, and then heal him up afterwards.

    The GM realizing I've made the equivalent of a 3.5 Cleric is not acceptable. I'm still not allowed to play Clerics, even in other systems.

    * No part of the following conversation is ever allowed to happen again:
    -When faced with identical beings each one claiming the other is a pirate-
    "See, it's not an illusion, it's actually transmutation. Because, actually, they're sheep who have been transmuted into humans to satisfy some deranged wizard's fantasy of watching sheep engage in a naval battle" - X
    "I think we should take them into separate rooms and interrogate the crap out of them. And by 'interrogate the crap out of them' I mean 'torture them'" - Zahhak
    "And by 'torture them' I mean 'make them have sex with sheep'" - X
    "Because the one who enjoys it, is clearly a sheep" - Zahhak

    * If a PC attempts suicide, it's the DMs fault

    * I don't care if you have the needed spells, we are not going to play Portal in Pathfinder.
    ** Or use those spells to rip out chunks of the enemy ship
    *** And we will especially not make those chunks rain down on the enemy ship
    **** Or launch the enemy ship back at itself

    * I don't care how many years OOC and how many characters had to die researching it, you are not allowed to make a nuclear warhead
    - Not my group, but someone in a different group that one of our party played with literally spent 3 years researching DnD spells and how nuclear warheads worked to make as close of an approximation to a nuclear warhead as possible.

    * I am not allowed to make modern weapons with Wizard spells.
    ** No, a rod of magic missile is not a rifle waiting to happen
    *** Or a sub-machine gun
    **** And taping multiple together does not make a gatling gun
    ***** And under no circumstances am I allowed to attempt to make a flamethrower

    * Low level PCs do not fight the Weeping Angels
    ** Or anything else from Doctor Who
    *** And I am not allowed to design mazes after episodes of Doctor Who
    **** Especially: Silence in the Library, Flesh and Stone, or the God Complex
    ***** I don't care how awesome it is
    ****** You know what, no Doctor Who the week before doing anything DnD related.

    * I am not allowed to crucify mice.

    * It doesn't matter that Geography in the real world includes knowledge of culture, history, and animals, Knowledge (Geography) does not grant me automatic ranks in Knowledge (Nobility and Royalty), Knowledge (History), and Knowledge (Nature)

    * I am not allowed to have a cat launcher
    ** If I ask again, my character will be struck with ball lightning.
    *** As DM, I am not allowed to give my PCs or NPCs cat launchers
    **** This will result in the Dungeon King setting me on fire

    * My penis is not a weapon
    ** It does not grant me bonuses to intimidate
    *** Even if it's shaped like a Q
    **** Especially if it's shaped like a Q

    * I am not allowed to pester the DM endlessly about questions about his worlds geography
    ** I am not allowed to then send him a 5 page essay detailing why his worlds geography makes no sense

    * There is a non-cannon DnD book, whose name I dare not speak, and which I am not allowed to reference in even the most oblique way.

    * My alchemist is not allowed to have a bomb thrower and refer to it as his "N00b tube"

    *** My bombs do not auto-crit if I shove them into the enemies mouth.
    **** I may not take Craft (Science)
    ***** I may not take Craft (Paradox)
    ****** I do not "Know all and see all"
    ******* Especially if I'm playing a blind oracle.
    ******** For that matter, I am not allowed to play blind oracles and carry a shotgun.
    ********* I may not refer to my guns as "My boom-stick"
    ********** I also may not refer to my guns as "My p***s" so that I may shoot enemies in the face with them and call it "The money shot"

    *My bard cannot have ranks in Perform: Sex.
    ** My bard may no longer "roll to seduce" every monster we encounter. It doesn't matter what his Charisma, Bluff, or Diplomacy scores are.
    *** No, the fact that he is a pansexual xenophile nymphomaniac does NOT make it good roleplaying.
    **** I cannot use a recounting of such encounters as my "bardic performance." Attempting to do so will grant penalties to my allies, instead, unless they're trying to harm me in which case they revert to being bonuses and are doubled.
    ***** Any effort to detail such encounters will result in me taking a handful of d4's of damage. Not my character, me.

    As DM, I may not bring my personally modified d4 airsoft gun to sessions.

    I may also not do this as a player.

    * The halfling is no longer allowed to cast sleep spells on itself.
    ** The party is no longer allowed to put a sleeping halfling sorcerer into a children's daycare.
    *** The party will no longer try and steal children from said daycare instead of picking up the sorcerer.

    * My modern setting character may not have any sort of mental disorder causing him to think he's a character in an RPG.
    ** Especially not if the game/system he thinks he's in is different from the one he's actually in.

    Actually, this sounds like an awesome character to play. Now, if only I can get someone else to agree, we're set.

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. ~ Terry Pratchett

    People don't *live* on the Disc anymore than, in less hand-crafted parts of the multiverse, they live on balls. Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they *live* elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the center of their heads. ~Terry Pratchett again

    Anyone knows blue is for sarcas'ing in "Take 10 SAN damage from Dark Orchid" Use of gray may indicate nitpicking Green is sincerity
