''Things Mr. Welch Is Not Allowed To Do In An RPG'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ó a list of things Mr. Welch, poster boy for TheLoonie, has been banned from doing in TabletopGames. It is ''[[ArchivePanic long]]'' (2,200 items at last count), imaginative, full of {{Defied Trope}}s, and often really funny.

The original list of 25 debuted in 2005 on a Livejournal entry by [=TheGlen=], but has since been updated every few weeks in blocks of 25. According to the author, the list contains jokes related to over fifty different roleplaying games, the majority of which regard the various editions of ''DungeonsAndDragons''. Other games that appear frequently include ''StarWars'', ''Deadlands'', ''Cyberpunk 2020'', ''7th Sea'', ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', ''Aeon Trinity'', ''Iron Claw'', ''{{Robotech}}'' and ''{{GURPS}}''.

Read the full list here:

* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/16735.html Numbers 1 - 500]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/89715.html Numbers 501 - 1000]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/131998.html Numbers 1001 - 1500]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/282764.html Numbers 1501 - 2000]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/389635.html Numbers 2001 - 2200]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/262011.html]] or [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/402080.html]] If you want to see it broken down by game system, start here and click the right arrow. In some cases, this reveals jokes that wouldn't otherwise be obvious.

Compare ''Literature/SkippysList'', "Things Runs-Like-Hell is not allowed to do in the Garou Nation" (which is ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' specific). It turns out Skippy and Mr Welch knew each other in real life but didn't know that each of them had written these lists they were both fans of until they were invited to attend a convention together.

Compare and contrast the ''EvilOverlordList'', which is more about becoming DangerouslyGenreSavvy. Another earlier list by Mr Welch can be found [[http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/off-topic/35334-00-ways-annoy-wargamers.html here]] ''100 Ways to Annoy War Gamers.''

--> 460. I'd better have a real good excuse for being a necromancer if I'm lawful good.
--> 476. The alignment of [[KidsAreCruel 2 years olds]] is not automatically NeutralEvil.
--> 863. Even if there is no alignment in Traveller, giving feuding [[TechnologyLevels TL]]1 tribes [[TechnologyLevels TL]]12 weapons and putting the results on PPV is just wrong.

* DeadpanSnarker:
--> 2072. Power Word Sarcasm is not a real spell.

--> 50. Not allowed to use thermodynamic science to asphyxiate the orcs' cave instead of exploring it first.

* DungeonmastersGirlfriend: Apparently the cause of strife more than once.
--> 421. I will not convince the GM's noob GF to play a psychotic combat monster.
--> 435. No bribing the DM's new GF with chocolate so he'll go easy on us.
--> 1347. Hooking up with the gamer chick the Storyteller was angling for gets me banned from the game.
--> 1905. No nailing the GM's girlfriend's character.
** [[InvertedTrope It works in favor of the players as well.]]
--> 2077. If I abandon the game for alone time with my fiance, my PC dies. Ask me if I freaking care.
--> 2078. Just because the DM prefers D&D to alone time with a smoking hot fiance doesn't mean the party gets to question his gender preference.
* EatMe:
--> 2093. Can't trick the dragon into swallowing a shrunken dire porcupine and then ending the spell while he swallows.
* EnemyToAllLivingThings:
--> 688. Even if the rules allow it, my Paladin cannot have the flaw: Hatred- All living things.
* EpicFail:
--> 1708. No bringing up the time we were nearly [[TotalPartyKill TPK'd]] by a jerboa.
* EpicFlail:
--> 1139. My weapon is a +3 Flaming Flail. Not my Great Balls of Fire.

--> 1. Cannot base characters off TheWho's drummer Keith Moon.
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
--> 231. I am not allowed to do anything that would make a Sith Lord cry.
** He also seems to have a particular dislike for pedophiles.
--> 1520. I will tell the noobs the storyteller wasn't joking about kicking people in the jewels for macking on jailbait.
--> 1665. I will not forget to uncuff the pedophile from outside the car before driving back to the station.
--> 1823. Despite what you'd think, taking out a child molester with extreme prejudice doesn't restore my humanity.
* EveryBulletIsATracer:
--> 545. No going 100% tracer round on the HMG just because I like the pretty colors.
* EveryCarIsAPinto:
--> 1482. Even if Detroit can do it, I can't add the trait "Randomly bursts into flame" to my car.

* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins:
--> 635. Arguments cannot end with the statement "Alright, we'll settle this like penguins!"
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Don't get bitten when he's around.
--> 27. I am not to shoot every corpse in the head to make sure they aren't a zombie in {{Twilight 2000}}.
--> 443. Zombies are not infectious in D&D. So I should stop shooting [=PCs=] in the head if they are bitten.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks:
--> 107. There is no such game as Wereshark the Buffet.
* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels:
--> 56. No matter how well I roll, a squirrel cannot carry a horse and rider at full sprint.
--> 442. When told to be subtle, playing [[TroubledButCute a foul mouthed chain smoking squirrel]] [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay is not a good choice]].
--> 719. A fluffy tail does not add to my comliness if I'm already 1' tall, furry and a squirrel.
--> 999. I can't [[WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory train squirrel mobs]] to [[GrapplingWithGrapplingRules abuse the grapple rules]].
* EverythingsSmellierWithSkunks:
--> 1036. My druid can't summon or change into a skunk. No seriously, it's not allowed in the rulebook.
* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask:
--> 2033. Even if the rules allow it, I can't conduct a television interview and maintain a choke hold at the same time.
* ExperiencePoints: Has more than a few ideas of how to earn more.
--> 108. No, I do not get XP for every single crewman on that Star Destroyer.
--> 530. I cannot earn bonus XP for 'catching air' with an MBT. So stop trying.
--> 643. Even if the rules allow it, I can't gain 1,000,000 XP with one forged check.
--> 676. My character's primary purpose in the party is not to just leech 1/6 of all the XP.
--> 1132. There will be no more debating how much XP Mr. Tumnus would be worth.
--> 1177. I will stop asking {{NPC}}s how much XP they are worth.

--> 1678. I don't get any XP for anything I killed in a flashback.
* {{Expy}}: The #1 entry prevents him from basing characters on [[TheWho Keith Moon]].

--> 452. Not allowed to convince the entire party to base the group only off Gary Oldman characters.
--> 493. I will not base any Media character off [[BloomCounty Milo Bloom]].
--> 1721. The minute the GM figures out my Inquisitor is [[LawAndOrder Lennie Briscoe]], he dies.
--> 2124. The DM will notice if the entire party is named after the Houston Texans offensive line.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:F-J]]
* FailedASpotCheck:
--> 722. Can't intentionally fail all my secret door checks so I don't have to play Tomb of Horrors again.
* FanDisservice:
--> 366. Female minotaurs do not have udders. This issue is closed.
--> 1278. An elf wardancer chick in nothing but body paint is totally hot. A Vesten berserker in nothing but body paint not so much.
--> 1283. For the last time, the elf wears the [[{{Meido}} maid]] disguise and the troll wears the bouncer disguise.
--> 1328. The very concept of a Hutt lap dancer will earn me a dark side point.
--> 1378. We will limit the total amount of conversation on the topic of "Hot Gnome on Gnome action."
--> 2163. Before starting an underwear clad pillow fight, I must first make sure the party is not all dwarves.
* FanonDiscontinuity: [[invoked]]
--> 1297. There is a 100xp penalty every time we remind the GM of the BionicSix.
--> 1559. Any mention of [[Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial Life Day]] gets everybody a dark side point.
* {{Fartillery}}:
--> 177. Stinking Cloud is a privilege, not a right.
--> 1812. Not using any emission from the barbarian as flamethrower fuel.
* FatBastard
--> 53. Not allowed to start a drow character weighing more than a quarter ton.
* {{Fetish}}:
--> 2009. I will make sure when the GM asks what my fetish is if he means voodoo bag or brunettes with short hair.
* FluffyTamer:
--> 2113. I can't saddle break: A dire troll, a Kodiak warjack, or the Butcher.
* FollowTheLeader: Similar in style to ''Literature/SkippysList'' of the "[[http://skippyslist.com/list/ 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army]]", though Mr. Welch has claimed repeatedly the resemblance was not intentional. This list has also inspired people to make threads in forums, which are quickly filled up by other people being TheLoonie.
** In fact, Skippy and Welch happen to know each other unrelated to these lists from their regular lives. They just didn't realize they were respectively the writers of these lists until their internet fame got them invited to the same event.
** [[http://axelslist.blogspot.com/ This blog]] is a variant containing things that have one of the aforementioned inspired people wrote, specifically referencing Mr. Welch and Skippy.

* GameBreaker: Numerous times In-Universe.
--> 69. There is more to wizardry than magic missile. Even if I can do 200 damage automatic with no save.
--> 1452. Despite it's phenomenal success rate, a multi-melta is not the solution to all my problems.
--> 2082. No matter how successful, our party has to be more than a wizard and 5 pikemen.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Subverted
--> 360. I must remind the GM that my Blessed can Raise Dead before he runs another murder mystery again.
* GangstaStyle: The page quote.
--> 1033. Holding the hand crossbow sideways 'gangsta style' does not add to my intimidate check.
* GargleBlaster:
--> 2047. Dwarven ale does not double as jet fuel, industrial solvent or colic medicine.
* GatlingGood:
--> 160. I will not load any gatling weapon with nothing but paint rounds.

* GenderBender: [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Restricted to male or female.]]

--> 181. I cannot quote Shakespeare in Crinos.
* GenkiGirl / {{Keet}}: This seems to be how he plays elves.
--> 48. The elf is restricted to decaf for the rest of the adventure.
* GiantFlyer
--> 2122. The reason elves live in forests is not to protect them from eagles that swoop down and grab them up.

* {{GMPC}}:
--> 13. Must not murder canon {{NPC}}s in their sleep, no matter how cliche they are.
--> 832. I will not run up my bar tab and then skip out leaving the DM's super {{NPC}} to foot the bill.
--> 1982. If the GM's pet NPC has tons of PlotArmor, can't use her for cover.
* AGodIsYou:
--> 158. I will not declare myself a god just so I can grant myself spells.
--> 169. I am neither the pagan god nor goddess of fertility.
--> 575. Even if I'm a near immortal demi-god with the power to create entire worlds with a thought, still bad to throw a party when Dad's away without permission.
--> 723. If my character is related to a god, it can't be as a parent.
* GodTest: Inverted
--> 1959. No using the time machine to make Christ the keynote speaker at an atheist convention.

* GoingCommando:
--> 88. My bard does not get a bonus to perform if she is obviously not wearing anything under her tabard.
* {{Golem}}: Adds a few more the Monster Manual "forgot".
--> 455. Styrofoam is not an appropriate component for golems.
--> 691. No matter what the kids say, animated balloon animals is a poor use of the Create Golem feat.
--> 967. There is no such thing as a Tequila Golem.
--> 2061. Note to self: Pinata golems are a bad idea.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: German, Dutch, Japanese(-sounding [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign gibberish]])...
* GrievousHarmWithABody:
--> 106. I do not have weapon proficiency in cat.

--> 345. I don't have weapon proficiency in elf, either.
--> 519. Dual wielding party members is also frowned upon.

--> 248. There is no Halfling god of groin shots.
--> 1457. I will remember the Japanese response to uncomfortable situations is to giggle, not a kick in the kiwis.

* GroundhogDayLoop:
--> 1193. I will avoid making wishes that lock the game in an infinite time loop.

--> 224. I cannot insinuate elf chicks are all easy, even though you never hear about a half gnome do you?
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl:
--> 1749. If my character is a hard drinking, hard partying Muslim chick, it's vetoed if she's clearly my Ex.
* HealingHands: Which are apparently rather... ''naughty''.
--> 1272. My Paladin can be charged with sexual harassment if he doesn't watch exactly where he lays on hands.
* HealingShiv:
--> 1702. Even if it's historical[ly] accurate, can't try to heal someone by cutting them.
* HellBentForLeather:
--> 822. If everybody in the room is in black leather, we're in the thieves' guild. Not a fetish club.
* HeroInsurance:
--> 17. Collateral Damage Man is not an appropriate name for a super hero.
--> 1792. Let's keep the collateral damage to under a billion dollars.
* HeWhoMustNotBeHeard:
--> 201. My thief is prohibited from speaking solely in Cant.
* HighlyVisibleNinja:
--> 1189. A stagehand does not get a better sneak bonus than ninjas.
--> 1839. Even if the rules say otherwise, a huge back banner with an arrow pointing down at me causes a penalty to stealth checks.

--> 2122. The reason elves live in forests is not to protect them from eagles that swoop down and grab them up.
--> 2167. The answer is never "Dwarven River Dance".
* HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct:
--> 228. I cannot use my time machine to [[YouNeedToGetLaid hire Hitler a hooker]] in 1920, thus avoiding WW2.
--> 1317. My character will refrain from appearing with Hitler in any history books. Especially if I'm chasing him with a wheat thresher.
* HitPoints:
--> 31. The backup trap handler is not whoever has the most HP at the time.
--> 824. The back up trap handler is not the guy with the lowest INT.

--> 1887. If I use the leap skill to individually jump over every goon in the room, when I reach the other side I can't demand to be made royalty.
* HumanShield:
--> 376. The barbarian must remember that 'human shield' is a figure of speech.
--> 546. Dead party members, while effective, are not [[JumpingOnAGrenade appropriate anti-grenade measures]].
* HypocriticalHumor: Welch apparently hates [[{{Munchkin}} powergamers]] enough to get told not to do various things that horribly mess up their game plans... and then just a bit further on he'll get admonished against using a horrifying GameBreaker [[invoked]]build/weapon/tactic/etc. of his own. (Granted, those tactics are usually [[CrazyAwesome highly]] [[RefugeInAudacity imaginative]].)
--> 897. Any action causing the powergamer to storm off, while actually appreciated, is frowned upon.
** He also "not allowed to call the power run game 'generic dungeon hack and slash 7'", so presumably he more or less hates playing a tabletop game just for the statics rather than Role playing.
** A few items on his list qualify as well:
--> 268. Mr. Welch is not allowed to speak in third person.
--> 506. Mjy Vjikjing Skjald wjill njot tjake ljibjertjies wjith thje rjunjic ajlphjabjet.

* IKnowYourTrueName:
--> 1438. You can't find true names in a phone book.

--> 14. Ogres are not kosher.
--> 19. Drow are not good eating.
--> 55. Before facing the dragon, not allowed to glaze the elf.
--> 156. When one person forgets to buy rations eating the half-elf is not our first option.
--> 162. What ever monster we just killed is not to be tonight's dinner.
--> 1433. [[{{Macross}} Zentradi]] are not good eating.
--> 1649. I can't free the cannibals' prisoners by starting a food fight with them.
--> 1671. Before entering the dungeon I will take off the "I'm with tasty -->" tabard.

--> 431. We will not implement any battle plan that includes the underlined words "And hope they miss a lot."
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon:
--> 1058. When I get to the custom weapons creation section, I will keep turning those pages.
* ImprobableWeaponUser / ImprovisedWeapon:
--> 425. Chainsaws and butter churns filled with bees do not use the same weapon skill.
--> 1680. The point of the Improvised Weapon Skill is not to see how many different things I can kill people with.
--> 1915. The following are not acceptable specialties for a weapon master: Mustard Gas, Cheese Grater, Sardonicism.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe:
--> 114. The Demilich only falls for getting stuffed in the bag of holding once.
--> 786. No I cannot keep the drow priestess we just found as a pet.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Guilty so many times.
--> 92. The name of the weapon shop is not "Bloodbath and Beyond".
--> 205. My 3rd ed. Red Wizard is not allowed to start a business named Thay Co.
--> 485. My Mossad agent's battlecry is not "Torah, Torah, Torah"
--> 751. If the party has to pose as classical German composers, I will not declare "I'll be Bach".
--> 783: The following are not acceptable Ironclaw characters: Mortal Wombat, Dalai llama, Boom Orangutan.
--> 1458. The ability to mimic other people's luck powers does not make me a karma chameleon.
--> 1573. Attempting to woo the Space Elf Clown does not turn the adventure into a Harlequin romance.
--> 1657. My halberdier is not guisarmed and dangerous.
--> 1660. Even if we just stole all their alkaline chemicals, that does not mean [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs all their base belongs to us]].
* InescapableAmbush: Even if he casts Glassee on the door.
--> 1293. I can't avoid plot mandated ambushes no matter how hard I try.
--> 1404. I will not spoil the adventure's mandatory ambush by using the cheesy tactic of a "scout".
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals
--> 35. I am not allowed to convince the entire party to play R2 units.
* ISurrenderSuckers:
--> 18. When surrendering I am to hand the sword over HILT first.
* IThoughtThatWas:
--> 1333. I will tell the noob [[{{Twilight 2000}} the game]] is about post nuclear Europe and not [[Literature/{{Twilight}} love struck vampires]] before we start.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The alternate link in the main article that sorts the list by game makes certain jokes and certain prohibitions more obvious for example:
--> 346. I most certainly don't have weapon proficiency in a Phased-plasma rifle in the forty watt range.
** Makes more sense when you know he tried it in a 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons game. In his defense, the Dungeon Master's Guide does contain rules for a limited selection of sci-fi weapons just in case the DM wants to humor this type of request or incorporate them as strange artifacts into a game.
* JackassGenie:
--> 568. My first wish cannot be 'I wish you grant all my wishes to the spirit and letter of the wish.'
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique:
--> 2071. Even if the Corporation prefers PC terminology, an interrogation is not 'kinetic information retrieval'.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:K-O]]
* KarmaMeter:
--> 174. There is no use of [[WilliamShatner Shatner's]] spoken word album that doesn't require a humanity check.

* KonamiCode:
--> 403. My rigger does not get a bonus if his log in code is up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, A, B, A, B, Start. [[note]](That's because [[ComicallyMissingThePoint he entered it wrong)]][[/note]]

* LastWords: Abused.
--> 1335. I can not filibuster in the middle of my dying speech to buy the cleric more time.
* LawfulStupidChaoticStupid: He tries to make up his own alignments, but gets turned down each time. Most of the time, though, ChaoticStupid describes him ''far'' too well...
--> 122. The paladin's alignment is not Lawful Anal.
--> 445. I will not admonish my fellow paladin with "a little less lawful, a little more good."
--> 651. My alignment is not Sarcastic Good.
--> 742. Apparently Chaotic Angry and Neutral Hungry aren't real alignments either.
--> 1059. Even if the villain is LawfulEvil, slapping a cease and desist order on him isn't going to work.
--> 1420. Doing 50 in a 45 does not cause an alignment check for the paladin.
--> 2103. Even if he is LawfulEvil, the villain isn't going to respond to a jury summons.
* LeastRhymableWord:

--> 744. My second wish can't be for a new, more open minded genie to grant my remaining wishes.
* LoadBearingBoss:
--> 1046. We can't stabilize the dying villain before we make our escape just in case he was a load bearing villain.
* LogicBomb: Back to the genie.
--> 199. My third wish cannot be 'I wish you wouldn't grant this wish.'
* TheLoonie: If only fictional examples of this kind of player could be quite so dedicated to it... but he doesn't seem to like competition.
--> 1088. I cannot try and throw large blunt objects at [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Malkavians]], [[DungeonsAndDragons kobolds]] or [[{{Dragonlance}} kender]]. [[InAndOutOfCharacter Or their players.]]

* LoveableSexManiac: Quite possibly Welch himself, given the number of sex-related things.
--> 51. No longer allowed to use the time machine for booty calls.
--> 125. Lingerie can only snap coincidentally so many times per day.
--> 661. The line on my character sheet for 'Sex' is not for keeping score.
--> 972. "Threesome" is not a specialty of the seduction skill.
--> 1240. No matter what the dice say, I didnít just seduce [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun Li. And Cammy.]]

--> 510. After a bloody battle, I will not celebrate by lying down and making carnage angels.
--> 1662. No starting a mosh pit in a leper colony.

--> 104. Nor is there a +1 Longsword,+ 5 against party members.

--> 1167. I can stop rolling at 7x dead.
--> 1257. No, the answer to the problem is not to make a gatling gun out of bazookas.
--> 1357. Preliminary saturation carpet bombing is not automatically Plan A.
--> 1517. Checking to see if the Mad Slasher is dead is ok, dismembering him with a shotgun is overkill.

--> 1606. If my fireballs always form a mushroom cloud, time to tone it down a bit.

* TourettesShitcockSyndrome:
--> 189. Tourette's is not a flaw, it is a reason to kill the character at creation.
* TranslationConvention: Unsurprisingly, this only happens in movies.
--> 10. Just because my character and I can speak German, doesn't mean the GM can.
* TrojanHorse:
--> 1231. No matter how low Orc intelligence, they aren't going to fall for a large wooden horse outside the gates of Mordor.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Welch is not allowed to invoke it in-universe.

''Things Mr. Welch Is Not Allowed To Do In An RPG'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ó a list of things Mr. Welch, poster boy for TheLoonie, has been banned from doing in TabletopGames. It is ''[[ArchivePanic long]]'' (2,200 items at last count), imaginative, full of {{Defied Trope}}s, and often really funny.

The original list of 25 debuted in 2005 on a Livejournal entry by [=TheGlen=], but has since been updated every few weeks in blocks of 25. According to the author, the list contains jokes related to over fifty different roleplaying games, the majority of which regard the various editions of ''DungeonsAndDragons''. Other games that appear frequently include ''StarWars'', ''Deadlands'', ''Cyberpunk 2020'', ''7th Sea'', ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', ''Aeon Trinity'', ''Iron Claw'', ''{{Robotech}}'' and ''{{GURPS}}''.

Read the full list here:

* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/16735.html Numbers 1 - 500]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/89715.html Numbers 501 - 1000]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/131998.html Numbers 1001 - 1500]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/282764.html Numbers 1501 - 2000]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/389635.html Numbers 2001 - 2200]]
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/262011.html]] or [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/402080.html]] If you want to see it broken down by game system, start here and click the right arrow. In some cases, this reveals jokes that wouldn't otherwise be obvious.

Compare ''Literature/SkippysList'', "Things Runs-Like-Hell is not allowed to do in the Garou Nation" (which is ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' specific). It turns out Skippy and Mr Welch knew each other in real life but didn't know that each of them had written these lists they were both fans of until they were invited to attend a convention together.

Compare and contrast the ''EvilOverlordList'', which is more about becoming DangerouslyGenreSavvy. Another earlier list by Mr Welch can be found [[http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/off-topic/35334-00-ways-annoy-wargamers.html here]] ''100 Ways to Annoy War Gamers.''

* CaffeineBulletTime:
--> 48. The elf is restricted to decaf for the rest of the adventure.
--> 242. Not allowed to give quicklings Mountain Dew.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> 640. There is a limit to the number of adjectives I can attach to an uppercut.
--> 1094. My wizard does not need to [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} shout out the name of what he's summoning every time he picks a creature]].
* {{Calvinball}}:
--> 781. My tribe's trial by combat ritual is not best described as "Calvinball with axes."
* {{Cameo}}:
--> 952. [[Film/DarkCity Kiefer Sutherland does not make numerous cameos in my character's background telling him he's destined for greatness.]]
--> 1199. StanLee does not have to make a cameo appearance in every single adventure.
* CampStraight:
--> 90. My swashbuckling fop cannot take the flaw Dark Secret: Not Gay.
* CaptainObvious:
--> 720. Don't have to include the line "And then stab them a lot" in the plan; it's already assumed.
* CarFu:
--> 687. I cannot backstab anybody with a Buick Skylark.
--> 1789. Doesn't matter what the map says, can't drive a sports car through the villain's lair.
* TheCasanova / ReallyGetsAround:
--> 362. It is very unlikely my half-ogre and the half-elf, half-dragon, tiefling and aasimar have the same dad.
--> 1849. [[LanguageEqualsThought There is too an elven word for "monogamy".]]
--> 1908. No matter what the rules say, my psychotic racist character doesn't get a permanent persuasion bonus just because she puts out.
* CastFullOfGay:
--> 1756. Despite what the module says, not every woman in this campaign is a closeted lesbian.
--> 1850. [[LanguageEqualsThought There is also an elven word for "heterosexual".]]
* CatapultToGlory:
--> 843. It doesn't matter how high his hit points or damage reduction are, we aren't sending the dwarf into battle via catapult.
* ChainsawGood:
--> 240. Any character with more than three skills specializing in chainsaw is vetoed.
--> 618. No matter how much my humanity loss, a chainsaw is not [[GearsOfWar a substitute for a bayonet]].
* CharacterAlignment:[[invoked]]
--> 122. The paladin's alignment is not [[LawfulStupid Lawful Anal]].
--> 218. No matter my alignment, organizing halfling pit fights is a violation.
--> 413. The ChaoticNeutral alignment [[ChaoticStupid is forever closed to me]].
--> 460. I'd better have a real good excuse for being a necromancer if I'm lawful good.
--> 476. The alignment of [[KidsAreCruel 2 years olds]] is not automatically NeutralEvil.
--> 863. Even if there is no alignment in Traveller, giving feuding [[TechnologyLevels TL]]1 tribes [[TechnologyLevels TL]]12 weapons and putting the results on PPV is just wrong.
--> 1683. Killing the orc horde by drowning them all at once is heroic. Killing them by drowning them one at a time is an alignment check.
--> 1929. Creator/AynRand has no affect on my alignment.
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys:
--> 637. German characters do not get a +4 racial bonus to intimidate French characters.
--> 1555. No matter how well I roll on my Intimidate check, France won't surrender.
* CherryTapping: Acceptable in and of itself, but...

* CleopatraNose
--> 42. Having a big nose adds nothing to my seduction check.
* CoastGuard
--> 61. Can only taunt the ranger about his lack of swimming after my USCG E8 saves him.
* CombatMedic: Plan A ó don't get hurt.
--> 233. If I am the medtech [[NotThatKindOfDoctor it is generally assumed I am going to have skill in medicine]].
--> 271. [[InstantDramaJustAddTracheotomy Tracheotomies]] are best left to characters with skills in medicine.
--> 498. A firefight is not the best time to tell the party my Medtech has a fear of blood.
--> 520. Under no circumstances is my medical droid allowed [[NotWhatItLooksLike a groin-mounted rectal thermometer]].
--> 1349. I will not program the medical droid for ďaggressive dentistry.Ē
--> 1909. Combat boots don't give bonuses to CPR checks.
* CombatPragmatist:
--> 80. When accepting a challenge for a duel, I must allow the other guy time to find a pistol.
--> 194. When the other guy picks swords for the choice of weapons, that does not leave me pistols.
--> 363. When challenged to a showdown, I'm meant to face him at 10 paces with pistols, not 10 blocks with a Sharpe's Big .50.
--> 692. The [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk Dr. Jones]] [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim School of Swordfighting]] is not an appropriate Swordsman's School.
--> 767. When challenged to a high noon shoot-out, that means in the time zone I'm currently in.

--> 1462. Dwarves do not have the racial ability to merge into a larger, more powerful dwarf.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike:
--> 523. When I'm rescued the correct response is "thank you" not "took your freaking time!"
* ConspicuouslyPublicAssassination:
--> 1779. Using [[NukeEm nuclear weapons]] in assassinations is just being lazy.
* ContagiousPowers:
--> 950. The ability to give superpowers to characters is acceptable. Naming the character Captain Franchise is not.
* ContractualBossImmunity:
--> 1062. Even if I think of something the Demi-lich isn't immune to, he's immune to it.
--> 1790. Can't find the villain just by casting power word stun in the bar [[ExploitedTrope and seeing who's still standing]].
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment:
--> 604. If my alignment forbids torture, that includes Gnomish Poetry Slams.
* CountingBullets:
--> 1528. I can't ask the bad guy if I fired 40,000 rounds or just 39,999.
* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: Minus the Clean, Pretty, and Reliable part, of course.
--> 1909. Combat boots don't give bonuses to CPR checks.
* CrazyCatLady:
--> 1632. I will not blow all my starting cash on just housecats.
* CreatorsPet: [[invoked]]Knows how to take advantage of them.
--> 1982. If the GM's pet NPC has tons of PlotArmor, can't use her for cover.

--> 1480. I will not add the restriction "only to cook eggs" to any of my super powers.
* CrossOver
--> No longer allowed to recreate the Death Star Trench Run out of genre.
* CrowdSong:
--> 940. I will not abuse the Exemplary virtue to set up highly choreographed dance routines with random crowds.
* CutenessProximity:
--> 2053. If the GM is a woman, can't play a space otter to gain cute points.
* CuttingTheKnot: To think outside of the box, it seems he cuts his way out with a chainsaw.
--> 367. No using excessive firepower to force the plot along.
--> 400. Check the door means to listen at it, not put several rounds through it.
--> 417. The solution to all my problems is not Crinos.
--> 580. A sledgehammer does not give any bonus to my search for secret doors roll.
--> 608. The answer to 'who's got point?' is not the fireball.
--> 694. Search the old castle means enter it, not level it with artillery and dig through the rubble.
--> 1019. Even if we have more ammo than fuel, I still have to cut down the tree with the chainsaw, not the HMG.
--> 1267. The lockpicking kit must be more than a sawed off shotgun.
--> 1439. If the top floor is too well defended, can't just blow off the next to top floor.
--> 1843. Can't land the drop pod on the villain.
--> 1907. No putting the villain's fake bio on Match.com and letting the stalkers do my work for me.
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul:
--> 348. The rest of the party appreciates it if I don't start the game in Cyberpsychosis.
--> 369. Not supposed to stop the soon to be cyberpsycho by disassembling him earlier in the adventure.
--> 1515. The Pope does not have cyberpsychosis.
* TheDandy:
--> 90. My swashbuckling fop cannot take the flaw Dark Secret: Not Gay.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: For his [=GMs=], at least.
--> 336. Cannot start a Cthuhlu character with a pre-existing hatred of [[TomeOfEldritchLore books]], altars and cutlery.
--> 840. Even if it would have immediately solved the last six adventures, I won't throw dynamite in every well I come across.
--> 977. Disable plot device is not a real skill.
--> 1046. We canít stabilize the dying villain before we make our escape just in case he was a load bearing villain.
* DatingCatwoman:
--> 1673. I will not start dating another character's archenemy.
* DeadGuyPuppet:
--> 813. Taking the orc warlord's skull as a trophy is acceptable. Not as a hand puppet.
* DeaderThanDead:
--> 2032. If I ever trick the DM into telling us the only way to make money mining is to work the shaft, all my characters die. Not just in this game either.
--> 552. If my character's drow wife finds I let my niece appear in a Gnomes Gone Wild Video, my death will not even warrant a saving throw.
* DeadpanSnarker:
--> 2072. Power Word Sarcasm is not a real spell.
* DealWithTheDevil:
--> 1570. No signing infernal contracts in disappearing ink.
--> 1597. Devils don't appreciate natural 20's on a bargain check.
* DeathBySex:
--> 835. I cannot lure out the [[SerialKiller Psycho Killer]] into an ambush by having sex with another character.
* DefiedTrope / EnforcedTrope: The [=GMs=] to what he does.
* DespairEventHorizon: Caused one in the player themselves.
--> 1903. No ruining the game by informing the DM [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers the Yellow Power Ranger]] is dead.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu:
--> 411. It is bad form to shoot a god while he's monologuing.
--> 1513. I will not shoot a Great Old One just to say I did it.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu:
--> 1421. Gods don't tap out.
* DoppelgangerSpin:
--> 1501. I will not take the mirror image spell literally and just shoot the wizard that's not left handed.
* DoubleEntendre
--> 45. My character names are not allowed to be double entendres.
* DropTheHammer:
--> 1372. Even if the rules allow it, I cannot have a monofilament sledgehammer.
--> 2028. Even if the rules allow it, a called shot to the eyes with a sledgehammer isn't very practical.
* DungeonBypass: A good number of the entries on the list. These include but are certainly not limited to...
--> 38. When investigating evil {{cult}}ists not allowed to just torch the decrepit mansion from the outside.
--> 50. Not allowed to use thermodynamic science to asphyxiate the orcs' cave instead of exploring it first.
--> 694. Search the old castle means enter it, not level it with artillery and dig through the rubble.
--> 1661. Cleaning out the dungeon means more than just backing up a cement truck to the window.
--> 1715. Can't just wizard lock the villain's throne room and come back in two weeks after he's starved to death.
--> 2096. We aren't looking at the various kingdoms' tax rates before deciding where to dungeon crawl.
--> 2114. I can't clear out a dungeon by just throwing a ball down the entrance and telling the Nomad warjack to fetch.
* DungeonmastersGirlfriend: Apparently the cause of strife more than once.
--> 421. I will not convince the GM's noob GF to play a psychotic combat monster.
--> 435. No bribing the DM's new GF with chocolate so he'll go easy on us.
--> 1347. Hooking up with the gamer chick the Storyteller was angling for gets me banned from the game.
--> 1905. No nailing the GM's girlfriend's character.
** [[InvertedTrope It works in favor of the players as well.]]
--> 2077. If I abandon the game for alone time with my fiance, my PC dies. Ask me if I freaking care.
--> 2078. Just because the DM prefers D&D to alone time with a smoking hot fiance doesn't mean the party gets to question his gender preference.
* EatMe:
--> 2093. Can't trick the dragon into swallowing a shrunken dire porcupine and then ending the spell while he swallows.
* EnemyToAllLivingThings:
--> 688. Even if the rules allow it, my Paladin cannot have the flaw: Hatred- All living things.
* EpicFail:
--> 1708. No bringing up the time we were nearly [[TotalPartyKill TPK'd]] by a jerboa.
* EpicFlail:
--> 1139. My weapon is a +3 Flaming Flail. Not my Great Balls of Fire.

--> 1665. I will not forget to uncuff the pedophile from outside the car before driving back to the station.
--> 1823. Despite what you'd think, taking out a child molester with extreme prejudice doesn't restore my humanity.
* EveryBulletIsATracer:
--> 545. No going 100% tracer round on the HMG just because I like the pretty colors.
* EveryCarIsAPinto:

--> 635. Arguments cannot end with the statement "Alright, we'll settle this like penguins!"
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Don't get bitten when he's around.
--> 27. I am not to shoot every corpse in the head to make sure they aren't a zombie in {{Twilight 2000}}.
--> 443. Zombies are not infectious in D&D. So I should stop shooting [=PCs=] in the head if they are bitten.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks:
--> 107. There is no such game as Wereshark the Buffet.
* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels:
--> 56. No matter how well I roll, a squirrel cannot carry a horse and rider at full sprint.
--> 442. When told to be subtle, playing [[TroubledButCute a foul mouthed chain smoking squirrel]] [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay is not a good choice]].
--> 719. A fluffy tail does not add to my comliness if I'm already 1' tall, furry and a squirrel.

--> 530. I cannot earn bonus XP for 'catching air' with an MBT. So stop trying.
--> 643. Even if the rules allow it, I can't gain 1,000,000 XP with one forged check.
--> 676. My character's primary purpose in the party is not to just leech 1/6 of all the XP.
--> 1132. There will be no more debating how much XP Mr. Tumnus would be worth.
--> 1177. I will stop asking {{NPC}}s how much XP they are worth.
--> 1215. If I'm just a few XP from 16th level, I can't just cast fireballs at random forests until I hit something.
--> 1678. I don't get any XP for anything I killed in a flashback.

[[folder:F-J]]
* FailedASpotCheck:
--> 722. Can't intentionally fail all my secret door checks so I don't have to play Tomb of Horrors again.
* FanDisservice:
--> 366. Female minotaurs do not have udders. This issue is closed.
--> 1278. An elf wardancer chick in nothing but body paint is totally hot. A Vesten berserker in nothing but body paint not so much.
--> 1283. For the last time, the elf wears the [[{{Meido}} maid]] disguise and the troll wears the bouncer disguise.
--> 1328. The very concept of a Hutt lap dancer will earn me a dark side point.
--> 1378. We will limit the total amount of conversation on the topic of "Hot Gnome on Gnome action."
--> 2163. Before starting an underwear clad pillow fight, I must first make sure the party is not all dwarves.
* FanonDiscontinuity: [[invoked]]
--> 1297. There is a 100xp penalty every time we remind the GM of the BionicSix.
--> 1559. Any mention of [[Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial Life Day]] gets everybody a dark side point.

* FatBastard
--> 53. Not allowed to start a drow character weighing more than a quarter ton.
* {{Fetish}}:
--> 2009. I will make sure when the GM asks what my fetish is if he means voodoo bag or brunettes with short hair.
* FluffyTamer:
--> 2113. I can't saddle break: A dire troll, a Kodiak warjack, or the Butcher.
* FollowTheLeader: Similar in style to ''Literature/SkippysList'' of the "[[http://skippyslist.com/list/ 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army]]", though Mr. Welch has claimed repeatedly the resemblance was not intentional. This list has also inspired people to make threads in forums, which are quickly filled up by other people being TheLoonie.
** In fact, Skippy and Welch happen to know each other unrelated to these lists from their regular lives. They just didn't realize they were respectively the writers of these lists until their internet fame got them invited to the same event.
** [[http://axelslist.blogspot.com/ This blog]] is a variant containing things that have one of the aforementioned inspired people wrote, specifically referencing Mr. Welch and Skippy.

--> 69. There is more to wizardry than magic missile. Even if I can do 200 damage automatic with no save.
--> 1452. Despite it's phenomenal success rate, a multi-melta is not the solution to all my problems.
--> 2082. No matter how successful, our party has to be more than a wizard and 5 pikemen.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Subverted
--> 360. I must remind the GM that my Blessed can Raise Dead before he runs another murder mystery again.
* GangstaStyle: The page quote.

* AGodIsYou:
--> 158. I will not declare myself a god just so I can grant myself spells.
--> 169. I am neither the pagan god nor goddess of fertility.
--> 575. Even if I'm a near immortal demi-god with the power to create entire worlds with a thought, still bad to throw a party when Dad's away without permission.
--> 723. If my character is related to a god, it can't be as a parent.
* GodTest: Inverted
--> 1959. No using the time machine to make Christ the keynote speaker at an atheist convention.

--> 201. My thief is prohibited from speaking solely in Cant.
* HighlyVisibleNinja:
--> 1189. A stagehand does not get a better sneak bonus than ninjas.

* HumanShield:
--> 376. The barbarian must remember that 'human shield' is a figure of speech.
--> 546. Dead party members, while effective, are not [[JumpingOnAGrenade appropriate anti-grenade measures]].
* HypocriticalHumor: Welch apparently hates [[{{Munchkin}} powergamers]] enough to get told not to do various things that horribly mess up their game plans... and then just a bit further on he'll get admonished against using a horrifying GameBreaker [[invoked]]build/weapon/tactic/etc. of his own. (Granted, those tactics are usually [[CrazyAwesome highly]] [[RefugeInAudacity imaginative]].)
--> 897. Any action causing the powergamer to storm off, while actually appreciated, is frowned upon.
** He also "not allowed to call the power run game 'generic dungeon hack and slash 7'", so presumably he more or less hates playing a tabletop game just for the statics rather than Role playing.
** A few items on his list qualify as well:

--> 506. Mjy Vjikjing Skjald wjill njot tjake ljibjertjies wjith thje rjunjic ajlphjabjet.

* ICallItVera:
--> 73. Not allowed to name my cudgel Ceremonial Whoopass Stick.
--> 524. I will not ask my gun for advice.

* IKnowYourTrueName:
--> 1438. You can't find true names in a phone book.
* ImAHumanitarian: Apparently, Mr. Welch finds every playable race tasty to some degree. That, or he's played too much ''{{Nethack}}''.
--> 14. Ogres are not kosher.
--> 19. Drow are not good eating.
--> 55. Before facing the dragon, not allowed to glaze the elf.
--> 156. When one person forgets to buy rations eating the half-elf is not our first option.

--> 431. We will not implement any battle plan that includes the underlined words "And hope they miss a lot."

--> 1058. When I get to the custom weapons creation section, I will keep turning those pages.
* ImprobableWeaponUser / ImprovisedWeapon:
--> 425. Chainsaws and butter churns filled with bees do not use the same weapon skill.
--> 1680. The point of the Improvised Weapon Skill is not to see how many different things I can kill people with.
--> 1915. The following are not acceptable specialties for a weapon master: Mustard Gas, Cheese Grater, Sardonicism.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe:
--> 114. The Demilich only falls for getting stuffed in the bag of holding once.

--> 783: The following are not acceptable Ironclaw characters: Mortal Wombat, Dalai llama, Boom Orangutan.
--> 1458. The ability to mimic other people's luck powers does not make me a karma chameleon.
--> 1573. Attempting to woo the Space Elf Clown does not turn the adventure into a Harlequin romance.
--> 1657. My halberdier is not guisarmed and dangerous.
--> 1660. Even if we just stole all their alkaline chemicals, that does not mean [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs all their base belongs to us]].
* InescapableAmbush: Even if he casts Glassee on the door.
--> 1293. I can't avoid plot mandated ambushes no matter how hard I try.

* ISurrenderSuckers:
--> 18. When surrendering I am to hand the sword over HILT first.
* IThoughtThatWas:
--> 1333. I will tell the noob [[{{Twilight 2000}} the game]] is about post nuclear Europe and not [[Literature/{{Twilight}} love struck vampires]] before we start.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The alternate link in the main article that sorts the list by game makes certain jokes and certain prohibitions more obvious for example:
--> 346. I most certainly don't have weapon proficiency in a Phased-plasma rifle in the forty watt range.
** Makes more sense when you know he tried it in a 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons game. In his defense, the Dungeon Master's Guide does contain rules for a limited selection of sci-fi weapons just in case the DM wants to humor this type of request or incorporate them as strange artifacts into a game.
* JackassGenie:
--> 568. My first wish cannot be 'I wish you grant all my wishes to the spirit and letter of the wish.'
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique:
--> 2071. Even if the Corporation prefers PC terminology, an interrogation is not 'kinetic information retrieval'.

--> 445. I will not admonish my fellow paladin with "a little less lawful, a little more good."
--> 651. My alignment is not Sarcastic Good.

--> 51. No longer allowed to use the time machine for booty calls.
--> 125. Lingerie can only snap coincidentally so many times per day.
--> 661. The line on my character sheet for 'Sex' is not for keeping score.

* MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness:
--> 1817. Can't target the starship's radiator.
** Although he was being silly, and treating a starship as though it were an automobile, a realistic spacecraft would have to have large radiator panels to dissipate all its waste heat, and [[http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/spacewardefense.php#radiators destroying them would cripple the spacecraft]].

* PlayerKilling:
--> 104. Nor is there a +1 Longsword,+ 5 against party members.

--> 1213. No, we can't see if the party can beat Temple of Elemental Evil in under an hour.
* StalkerWithACrush
--> 1805. I won't mention a celebrity that causes another gamer to go all stalker. Sorry in advance Jeannie Mai.
* STDImmunity:
--> 588. Paladins are immune to [=STDs=], but if I take advantage of this ability, I lose it. Wonderful paradox, isn't it?
* StoneWall: Denied.
--> 2082. No matter how successful, our party has to be more than a wizard and 5 pikemen.

--> 1464. Cannot use the requisition skill to get a beach house in the Virgin islands, even if Congress can.
--> 1773. Can't use a wish spell to make the last ''StarWars'' trilogy not suck.
--> 1782. I will remember we're playing 4th edition and stop using my imagination.
--> 2159. Just because my media only put the bare minimum into his journalistic skills doesn't mean he starts at MSNBC.
* TakingYouWithMe: Instead of a bomb, he uses a Great Old One.
--> 171. My character's dying words are not allowed to be "Hastur, Hastur, Hastur."

--> 901. In the middle of the Black Ops a diversion is not blowing off the top twenty floors of the building.
--> 1016. Even if spells are [[VancianMagic use them or lose them]], I will not waste Meteor Swarms on a goblin.
--> 1167. I can stop rolling at 7x dead.
--> 1257. No, the answer to the problem is not to make a gatling gun out of bazookas.
--> 1357. Preliminary saturation carpet bombing is not automatically Plan A.
--> 1517. Checking to see if the Mad Slasher is dead is ok, dismembering him with a shotgun is overkill.

* TokenMinority:
--> 518. Affirmative Action does not require me to play a drow.
* TourettesShitcockSyndrome:
--> 189. Tourette's is not a flaw, it is a reason to kill the character at creation.
* TranslationConvention: Unsurprisingly, this only happens in movies.
--> 10. Just because my character and I can speak German, doesn't mean the GM can.
* TrojanHorse:
--> 1231. No matter how low Orc intelligence, they aren't going to fall for a large wooden horse outside the gates of Mordor.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Welch is not allowed to invoke it in-universe.

* VirginSacrifice:
--> 401. When a virgin sacrifice is demanded I will not look knowingly at the paladin, netrunner or Hermetic.

* WeaponOfXSlaying
--> 206. I cannot forge a +1 sword of Brad's Min/Maxed Paladin/Monk Slaying.
* WeNeedADistraction: Greatly limited.
--> 450. When told to distract the villainess, they didn't mean with a surprise marriage proposal.
--> 678. Distract the bad guy does not mean with a recreation of the Apollo landing.
--> 1667. When told to distract the bad guy they didn't mean by playing Wham over their commlinks.

* {{Whatevermancy}}:
--> 334. Pinball is not a specialization [[TheWho for wizards]].
--> 578. Rectomancy is not a school of magic.

--> 1191. Super powers that are only useful to art majors are vetoed.
--> 1210. I will keep rolling until I get a superpower I can actually use.

* WhipItGood: ''Not'' the WeaponOfChoice of the Goddess of Marriage.
* {{Whoring}} / CripplingOverspecialization:
--> 69. There is more to wizardry than magic missile. Even if I can do 200 damage automatic with no save.

* YouAllMeetInAnInn: Not good enough for him.
--> 212. If the party always starts the adventure in a tavern, I cannot opt to start in a brothel.

''Things Mr. Welch Is Not Allowed To Do In An RPG'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ó a list of things Mr. Welch, poster boy for TheLoonie, has been banned from doing in TabletopGames. It is ''[[ArchivePanic long]]'' (2,150 items at last count), imaginative, full of {{Defied Trope}}s, and often really funny.
