YMMV / Things Mr. Welch Is No Longer Allowed to Do in an RPG

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: While Mr. Welch is clearly a Loonie, there are plenty of cases where the rules seem simply designed to insure the GM can railroad the campaign. For example:
    410. If the NPC is on the cover of the rulebook, I can't kill him.
  • Crazy Awesome: Can you imagine dealing with just one of the situations he's barred from?
  • Genius Bonus:
    1189. A stagehand does not get a better sneak bonus than ninjas. note 
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Entry 132 is "There is no such feat called 'Death Blossom'". In Overwatch, Death Blossom is the name of Reaper's ultimate attack.
    • Entries 171 ("My character's dying words are not allowed to be 'Hastur, Hastur, Hastur.'") and 336 ("Cannot start a Cthuhlu character with a pre-existing hatred of books, altars and cutlery.") were both written before the story of Old Man Henderson was posted.
    • Kerillian from Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide is an elf with a Scottish accent, which Mr. Welch is forbidden from playing.
    188. I cannot play an elf with a Scottish accent, nor a Cajun dwarf.
    • Entry 958, prohibiting him to use shotgunchucks, has become even more hilarious since Sun Wukong from RWBY has been shown to use shotgunchucks.
