    I was trying to set it up as my character's sort of introduction-catchphrase, my equivalent to Madmartigan's "Greatest swordsman in the world," that The Spoony One stole homaged for his absurdly-lucky bard, Tandem the Spoony. It apparently wore pretty thin on the DM eventually, after I introduced myself that way to too many NPCs. Said DM may also be a little aggravated with my bard in general, because I've over-optimized him a bit.

    Of course it's in character, the only GM I've had that I'd be willing to flirt with is married so he's off the table. Not that he or his wife would have a problem with us doing it IC, no matter the gender of the PCs or NPCs (the group is at least 50% bi/pan, with at least one gender identity of '**** your categories').

    * No longer allowed to sheninagan "Lesser Planar Ally" as a 3rd level spell castable at 8th level.
    * Even if it's technically true (Pathfinder Psychic with the Rebirth Discipline) declaring "I was a necromancer in a past life! I can fix him!" is probably not the best way to handle the near death of the barbarian.
    * Just because the spell "Explode Head" does not have the Evil tag does not mean it doesn't cause the entire battle to stop when you psychically detonate a guy's head and slice up his friends with the bone fragments.
    * There is no such thing as "developing an allergy to detect evil" and I cannot ask that it not be cast on me without getting funny looks. Especially after blowing up someone's head.
    * If I defend my head exploding ways with "well, it was that or force him to fight his literal worst nightmare until it killed him.", I should probably expect detect Evil.
    * Should not stick my tongue out because Phantasmal Killer still doesn't have the Evil tag.

    * Not allowed to take a flaw to represent the delusion that my bard must dress as a pompous rich fop for his magic to work.
    * Not allowed to play a human Alchemist raised by Gnomes. Especially if Pathfinder allows it.
    * Not allowed to play a druid raised by ocelots. Despite precedent.

    *the beatstick can no longer tame wild animals by supplexing them and saying "stop! bad critter!".
    ** despite the dice saying so.
    *** if he tamed the velociraptor pack's alpha, we can't name it "beta".
    **** we can't get more attached to "beta" than to most npc's.
    ***** this goes for all animal companions we pick up along the way. (including underpaid security guards, rogue electricians, random children, foxes...)

    *just because i said i'd name my character in an npc's honor after a heroic sacrifice, i can't do it again.
    ** "frankalice" is already a long name. no need to add to its length by adding names and titles.
    *** what's with you and doctors with oddball names and too many titles? we'll only end up calling them "doc".
    regarding my choice of sustenance:

    * It is certainly not a requirement for my cleric.
    ** Despite any 'real world precedence' I can come up with.

    * Even if it's rules legal in 3.5, cannot play a cleric who devoutly worships agnosticism.
    ** Transhumanism is definitely banned.
    *** As are determinism, deceit, communism, and the big bang.

    * Even if all evidence points towards it being the winning team, cannot begin worshipping the Elder Gods.
    ** Especially cannot begin the game worshipping the Elder Gods. With the Cleric class and Accolyte background.
    *** Warlocks are not wimps for only dealing with Great Old Ones. Which in my experience is just the most popular pact, while I like the Infernal Pact for it being classic everyone seems to go for Cthulhu.

    * Cannot sterilise the bard.
    I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and generally play in the former genre. Due to this, I generally expect the laws of physics to apply to games, and work from that perspective.

    I'd have thought Deceit would be allowed for a Trickery-domain cleric...

    *Nietzschean clerics of the Will to Power and/or the Übermensch are right out.

    **The reason the bard can't be sterilized may not be that worldwide population growth would decline too steeply as a result, leading to economic catastrophe.
    ***Nor may the reason be that doing so would constitute a form of genocide against the world's population of half-humans.
