    Does... does the spell allow you to wake up after catching fire?

    * I may no longer allow the PCs to have any direct interaction with the BBEG before the final confrontation, lest they hit him/her/it with Curse of the Burning Sleep.

    It explicitly wakes you up. But you do wake up on fire, hurt, and likely confused. The Gm made this big show of security being heightened at the noble's house when we tracked him back later. It is unlikely to kill at the level you get it unless your enemy is already wounded, but it is a great way to make sure someone doesn't really escape your wrath.

    To make it even more fun, make a contingency which teleports the party to the BBEG when the spell goes off.

    Have contingency which casts a spell which in turn scans for and thanks to a bit of tinkering triggers magic of a certain type. Rig it to search for and trigger Contingency. Run. Watch as the GM's plan for having the Leaders of the Unholy Magi survive their first encounter with the players gets screwed over.
    An explanation of why MitD being any larger than Huge is implausible.

    It's become...infectious. One 9 (?) year-old is going full world-building and running games of his own (no published adventures, just the books), making his own maps and terrain, painting minis, the whole bit. I think he's going to be pretty good at it. Another 11 year old has gone on a character building spree--working on his 7th character including using UA material and other books. I feel proud for being the catalyst to a new generation.

    I may no longer inflict npcs named Chundarr the Boobarian on the party without forewarning.

    Chundarr may no longer grab a pc, jump 4 meters straight up, and bring them down so hard that the pc's leg flies off.

    Chundarr may no longer use the parties zombie minions as clubs to break ribs and cause pcs to start internall hemmoraging.

    I may no longer come within one luchador stunt of a total party kill with joke npcs.

    Coming soon to an ork karaoke bar near you: Chundarr may no longer turn out to have survived face melting fireballs and a nuclear meltdown in order to force/trick/seduce the pcs to become his/her love interest(s).
