    6277. The GM is to refrain from killing interesting NPCs in ways that cause me to feel responsible. It gets old.
    6277b. If he does so anyway, and the NPC takes a little while to expire, he should expect that I will do everything in my power to prevent it. Including using that astral eavesdropping portal spell I'm so fond of to invent the tracheal bypass. (This was in a freeform.)
    6278. On a slightly different note (and different game), even if I am making sure the group is thinking as one, I need to stop taking so many opportunities to create massively epic stunts that incorporate all the PCs and the occasional NPC. The GM is getting entirely tired of the stunt barrier breaking so regularly.
    6279. I should remember that "I attempt to convince the power-hungry megalomaniac that he doesn't want to become a god because the paperwork is atrocious" will probably not work outside my game group, or even with characters other than the one I just pulled it off with.
    6280. And make sure the character who did it is better with the red tape before he tries it again. For verisimilitude if nothing else.

    Rule #1: When in doubt, try to intimidate the army.

    At the request of a DM I will now sometimes make characters with spiritual beliefs other than atheism in a Faerun based campaign. Mostly because of the points below.

    6282: If I do play an atheist then when forcing a cleric of Kelemvore to explain why there are such harsh penalties for the faithless I cannot have him say, "Okay, I call bull**** on that."
    6283: Especially when the cleric is important to the plot.
    6284: Especially if my character had poor rolls and will most likely die.
    6285: Especially if when he does die he gives Kelemvore a raspberry and says, "Jog on." on the Fugue plane.
    6286: Especially because he'll be fast-tracked into the Wall of the Faithless.
    6287: I cannot demand a Will save to become a Vestige in order to piss off the gods after his judgement has been rendered.
    6288: Even if I roll anyways and get a natural 20, I still can't.
    6289: I cannot have my new character worship the old one as the patron of atheism and then start a church for all of the disgruntled mortals of the world, no matter how hilarious the fallout with the gods might be.

    6307. Not allowed to kill off the extremely annoying plot-critical NPC paladin through manipulation of the rules for the DM's homebrewed plane, clever segregation of IC and OOC knowledge, and a dimension door spell.

    6307b. Especially when playing a good character, even though technically it's not evil since the paladin gets killed indirectly.

    6316: While invading a town if the party bursts into an inn the fighter should attack the enemys rather than killing some cowering children and then getting a drink while the wizard, cleric and bard bullrush the enemy. During this the rogue should not attempt to steal bricks from the wall just because he can and the warlock should not force the animated corpse of a child to attack his parents in order to permanantly scar his former brother
