    ME: "Okay, so I'm going to use a Steal action to plant an item on this self-righteous prick, and I get to activate it when I plant it because of a talent I have."
    GM: "What are you planting on him?"
    ME: "Immovable rod."
    GM: "Wait, he's a dragon. He's not wearing clothes. WHERE are you planting it?"
    ME: "Well I AM behind him..."
    GM: "You mean you're going to shove it up his-"
    ME: "Don't think of it as a steal action. Think of it as actualizing a metaphor."

    But what if your secret identity is as a crazy dude with lots of "secret identities" that are obviously just him in a different shirt? That way no one will suspect him as the secret identity of the superhero--everyone knows that Bob's really bad at disguise.

    **In AQ, a Lich is a necromancer who turns themselves into any kind of sentient free willed undead and then rips out and binds part of their anima, life force(not soul) to objects to create phylacteries. a Locus is an other undead creature being used as a phylactery.
    ***The Strongest Form of the Sharingan is the Rinnegan-Rinne is the japanese word for Samsara, the cycle of Reincarnation believed in by Hindus and Buddhists.

    * roller skates don't exist in pathfinder, no matter how many gnomes, artificers, engineers, or wizards i bribe.
    ** if by some miracle i create roller skates, i may not immediately transform them into rocket roller skates and strap them to livestock.
    *** "but c'mon, it'd be frickin' hilarious!" is not a valid argument in favor of terminal velocity bull charges.

    * cow bombs? i'm gonna get fragged by like, ALL the druids.
    ** the only way to weaponize livestock is to add battle barding to them. not use them as trebuchet ammo.

    *I may no longer create Coffee-lock NPC's.
    *I Definitely may not create a Coffee-lock PC
    *And I "Definitely" may not stitch the two of them to create a PC/NPC hybrid with (2x)unlimited spell slots.

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.

There's a finite amount of diamond, especially easily accessible diamond, on the Prime Material, and every time someone casts a raise dead, resurrection, or restoration spell, some of it is permanently and irrevocably destroyed. But the amount needed for material components is determined by value, not by mass, so by artificially inflating the price of diamond, DeBeerds reduces the actual amount of it required for casting spells, and so helps to stave off "peak diamond".

    DeBeerds also sponsors most of the legendary dwarven gemcutters, whose art likewise increases the price per weight of diamond.

    Next time you die, and the cleric only needs a couple of fancy cut stones to bring you back instead of a bushel basket full of carbon gravel, you can thank DeBeerds.

    no kidding, i actually employed that to get out of an encounter that went pear-shaped for us. we were playing whfrp2e and were in a bakery: on one side, nurgle cultists. on the other, and blocking the exit, a plaguebearer. judging our chances as "nil", i kicked up a flour dust storm and lit my lighter, judging "catastrophic explosion and firestorm" as slightly less lethal than our current predicament. we didn't get out intact, but we managed to run out of a blown-out wall singed, sore, and alive. the cultists died on the spot, and the plaguebearer chased us slowly for a few turns before disappearing back into the winds of magic.

    the dm was so impressed he didn't even ban that tactic, he really thought we were about to tpk.

    ******** I may no longer buy 200 goats before going to the dungeon.
    ********* buying 10000 chickens is not valid either.
    that, however, i am banned. just like i'm banned most animal summons, over traps or not. now, this isn't me, but it was from a teammate.

    *summoning blue whales in tight dungeon corridors to shut off pursuit? not fair play at all. also alignment shifts.

    As a general rule I've found out that pulling out such tactics when a tpk looks likely not only doesn't get them banned, but also gives them a decent chance of succeeding. However pulling out such tactics when everything is fine results in shifty looks, and the plan either banned or stopped working via something that you didn't know about but of course was there all along.
