** [[UpToEleven Taken even further]] in his ''Epic Rant''. As the title implies, it's a meandering (but entertaining) '''four part''' mess of topics, starting off as a discussion of super hero role-playing games, then going on to discuss things like ''RPG/CallOfCthulhu'' or ''Babylon5'', ending on Spoony talking about a video game based on ''LordOfTheRings''.

* RockFallsEveryoneDies: In ''Shadowrun: The Code'', Spoony recounts that he had to kill off the entire party because the game had gone too far OffTheRails in a way that wasn't salvageable. He asserts that the DM sometimes must assert authority and reign the players in, if just to remind them who runs the game.

* RockFallsEveryoneDies: The conclusion to ''Shadowrun: The Code'' because the game had gone too far OffTheRails by that point. Spoony asserted that the DM sometimes must assert authority and reign the players in, if just to remind them who runs the game.

** The ''Literature/ThievesWorld'' campaign went way off-script. Spoony's original plan was for the [=PCs=] to slowly work their way into Tempus Thales' "favor" and assist him in overthrowing the city. After [[ATragedyOfImpulsiveness a textbook example of why not to interrupt the DM]], the campaign turns into horrifically EscalatingWar of atrocities between Thales and the party.

After Then one of the players [[ATragedyOfImpulsiveness a textbook example of why not to interrupt impulsively interrupted the DM]], DM and unknowingly threw an acid flask at Tempus' face]], rolling a CriticalHit. Spoony elected to let it happen and bent the rules so the acid permanently damaged Tempus[[note]]Tempus is normally supposed to be NighInvulnerable with a HealingFactor, but Spoony decided that the crit had to do ''something'' and gave him facial scars that wouldn't heal. Spoony justified it by stating that Tempus' humiliation made him lose favor with his god, who wouldn't heal him.[[/note]], so the campaign turns turned into horrifically a horrific EscalatingWar of atrocities between Thales and the party.

** Pretty much all of the ''Literature/ThievesWorld'' campaign. Spoony's original plan was for the [=PCs=] to slowly work their way into Tempus Thales' "favor" and assist him in overthrowing the city. After [[ATragedyOfImpulsiveness a textbook example of why not to interrupt the DM]] (see WhamLine), the campaign turns into horrifically EscalatingWar of atrocities between Thales and the party.
** At [[WebVideo/D20Live ConBravo]], Big Mike's original plan was to have the party, upon seeing that the BigBad was a [[spoiler:''Colossal Black Dragon'']], to go get an army of reinforcements. Instead, Spoony throws some insults at him and [[spoiler: the Party ends up killing the Dragon without getting hit, much to Mike's surprise.]]

* ThrowTheDogABone: When recounting the ''Thieves World'' campaign, Spoony mentions that he decided to bend the rules and let the players "win" against Tempus Thales because they worked so hard over the course of the campaign.

** This is where his own alias comes from--his character "Tandem the Spoony" was so named because he wanted a cognomen that was a real adjective, but an incredibly obscure one.[[note]]In case you were wondering, "spoony" means "indiscriminately amorous"; the kind of person who will hit on his or her preferred gender, regardless of race, creed, (old) age, influence, power, etc. And considering that Tandem got kicked off Olympus for sellping with Zeus' daughter, it's incredibly accurate[[/note]]

* GetOut: Spoony's reaction to a player who wanted to make an Abberant Monster vampire who selectively fed on adolescent children undercover as a school counselor in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade''. That same player also happened to be the leader of the {{Villain Protagonist}}s of ''Shadowrun: The Code'', who attacked museum guards and blew up a city block because their faces were seen during a heist, in a setting where the characters could probably evade identification by changing their faces with plastic surgery.

When the player insisted that he wasn't just {{Troll}}ing and actually wanted to play the character, Spoony responded "Then you're ''really'' a freak and I ''really'' want you out of here!"

** Spoony proves himself to be this again in ''Nightstake'', when he rolls straight 10s on 6 10-sided dice to stake Invisible Jason's [[VampireTheMasquerade Assamite]] [[GratuitousNinja Ninja]] vampire with [[BulletTime Cele]][[SuperSpeed rity]] through the chest with a thrown sharpened police nightstick; the odds of this succeding being literally {{Million To One|Chance}}
