    * Friend Computer likes me. However they do not like like me, and suggesting they do is treason.
    Impulsiveness is not necessarily a good idea for blowing up as many things as possible since patience and the ability to pile up more explosives before wanting to explode them can allows to make explosions with more explosives.
    On the other hand if you were going to run out of explosives then that flaw is a good idea.

    He does insult alphabetically, but on an absolute basis, not an average basis. It doesn’t matter if most of the population has “T” et seq. names, he’ll still have to get the few who don’t in order. For instance he’d have to hit “Abdel Adrian the Bhaalspawn” long before he got to “Arthur Dent” on Earth.

    Yeah, that's one of the things they annoyed me about And Another Thing. Right near the beginning he's abandoned the alphabetical order bit because of how every time he arrived at a planet they'd have everybody lined up in alphabetical order or something, which makes no sense (it doesn't matter if Arthur Gent it's behind Arthur Dent in the queue, he has to go and insult Arthur Denu on the planet Orion 6).

    Also my original reading of the series convinced me that he didn't have access to time travel, and thus never got past the As as people were born too fast for him to catch up. I don't know if they was the intention, but I find it significantly more funny than him flitting across space and time doing it all in complete alphabetical order.

    Given: The PCs are looking for a force of "missing, presumed dead" soldiers on an ancient wrecked space station.

    Given: They've run into increasing numbers of cyber-zombies as the get closer to the Imperial troop ship that's been rammed into the station.

    Given: The PCs got to the ship and killed a batch of cyber-zombies in the half wrecked docking bay.

    * I may not ambush the PCs just because they sealed themselves in a small garage, with only one exit, inside the docking bay, next to the ship with a mad tech-priest and 100+ cyber-zombies in it, because they wanted to 'rest'.

    * I may replace all the cyber-zombies because they did not throw the bodies of their own fallen soldiers down the conviently place bottomless pit.

    * I may not have the werewolf spontaneously turn into a cyber-zombie half way through the rest period just because he spent three rounds during combat being humped with a zomb's spiky nanite injector bits.

    * I may have the werewolf's arm, that got punched off by a zomb, regenerate as an uncontrolled cyber-zombie-arm. Because that's funny.

    * I may not have Commisar Urist McBlammo blow up the space station with anitmatter missiles as a "nuke it from orbit" decision. It's logical, but will kill the PCs.

    * I may have Commisar Urist McBlammo show up dual weilding full-auto grenade launchers and accuse the PCs of cowardice. Because they can outrun him.

    * I will discover if I am allowed to make brain eating, demon worshipping, "awaken the elder evil", mind flayers more sympathetic and safer to deal with than th PCs own command structure.

    If you've nothing to say, say it any way you like. Stylistic innovations, contorted story lines or none, exotic or genderless pronouns, internal inconsistencies, the recipe for preparing your lover as a cannibal banquet: feel free. If what you have to say is important and/or difficult to follow, use the simplest language possible. If the reader doesn't get it then, let it not be your fault.

    * Yes, singing "It's beginning to look a lot like Fishmen" when walking into the Kuo-Toa settlement is racist.

    * I am no longer allowed to have a 600 kilo aboleth rip open a 4 cm thick steel pipe wall, jump 20 meters onto a catwalk, and start tentacle hentai-ing the party gunman and mage. It's a caster with divinations, enchantments, and illusions dang it.


    - Context: Aboleths are pretty hefty castors and there's a divination spell called Luck that gives extra dice. By overcasting, risking perils of the warp, and getting a really good roll, it got to throw 9 extra dice on a jump check. In a system where you roll a max of ten dice, with extra dice going towards better successes and auto-successes. Plus the thing is apparently big enough to be really strong by default too.

    Assuming "tentacle hentai-ing" is a metaphor, I see no reason why you shouldn't do that in whatever edition that is(guessing 5e?).

    If you play 3.5e, I do have this very nice Savant Aboleth I built... Which is more heavy on the "psionic manifesting" than the "tentacle face-smashing", to be honest, but isn't exactly terrible at the latter either.
