[up] Is troll meat even edible?

[up] One special character in Warhammer is a goblin who ate some raw troll meat. Given the regenerative rate of trolls, this rapidly led to chronic indigestion.

If I find some trolls when scouting the dungeon I am not to run out screaming "TROLLS In the dungeon! I thought you'd like to know." And then calmly proceed into said dungeon as if nothing had happened.
Right at that moment, somewhere off in whatever non-space the denizens of canceled game lines live, a Technocrat fist-bumped an Etherite.

  • My bard cannot play death metal, even if it is on a lute and even if he's an orc.
    • No orc bards.

Not allowed to play a Tiefling heavy metal bard whose guitar is also an axe and on fire in a campaign set in feudal Japan. Because he's underpowered.

Even though it is physically possible (see: Van Canto), I may not play a Bard who does his bard songs a capella by perfectly imitating the sound of a heavily distorted guitar.

WHAT HAS SCIENCE WROUGHT
  • My necromancer does not have to pray to recharge his spells. He's an arcane caster.
    • Even if he did, said prayer is not "The Blackest Night falls from the skies,/ The darkness grows as all light dies./ We crave your hearts and your demise,/ By my black hand, the dead shall rise!"
      • And his (unnecessary) holy symbol is not a lantern made of obsidian!

[up] We have a running gag in my group of saying "well, mission accomplished." "But what about [unresolved plot point with potentially disastrous ramifications]?" "Well, I don't think we have to worry about that. Let's go back to town and have cake!" -credits roll- Today is AAAAALRIIIIIGHT for toniiiiight!

  • Even if my character is based on Tolkien's ents, he still has to choose a battle cry he can feasibly rattle off in one combat round.
  • Tanning beds do not deal aggravated damage to vampires. End of story.
  • When asked to infiltrate a building with my shapeshifting powers, I am not to simply jump out of a plane directly above it and assume the form of a vertical steel rod.
  • If my Paranoia character ever volunteers to leave the room again, the team leader is coming with him.
    • And the loyalty officer.
    • And the comm officer, who will not be me this time.

A little late, but:

No orc bards.

Get another GM. Mine let me count it as playing my drum when I hit foes over the head with it. (This was the basis for the story with which I won the second TV Tropes writing contest.)

Oh, the shenanigans you can get up to with a melee-based Psycher in Warhammer 40k Black Crusade...

  • No longer allowed to attack on the first turn of a boss battle if it would immediately end the combat.
  • Can't refer to myself as the best marksman of the party if I'm wielding a sword, regardless of the fact that I can charge farther than anyone else in the party can shoot.
  • If I'm missing an arm, alone, and too unnerved by the two Grey Knights to approach them, and less than a full round of combat later they've both been killing in single attacks and I haven't taken any wounds, something is getting nerfed.

[up][up] I was in a very short-lived D&D game where I was one of two bards in the party. I was a half-elf, David was a half-orc. We had a scene where I recruited him into our adventuring party by narrowly beating him in an epic rock-off.

[up] Arrows can cross canyons, a charge cannot. I hope.

My half-orc bard is the party leader. Admittedly, his Perform is Oratory, so yes, he verbally brow-beats the enemy (and sometimes his allies), but I'd like to see some pansy elf talk a magma elemental into helping the party. cool

[up] Depends on the width of the canyon, and more importantly, the Jump/Acrobatics check needed. The DC is equal to the number of feet to cross ... so at epic levels, it is entirely possible to have a mount, or even just the party member, leap over the canyon before the arrow.

On the subject of Black Crusade, regarding me as a GM. No longer allowed to mention the affects of Primordial Annihilation. The panic attacks and weeping slow things down.

Another player in my BattleTech group: Constantly irritating an allied officer, who happens to be the most affable member of the formation you are working together with to bring down the local nuke happy cyborgs, is just unwise. Specifically researching his culture to find his Berzerk Button is even worse. Not taking into account that he is 8 feet fall, weighs about 250 pounds, carries a scaled down railgun as a pistol and that his fists are deadly enough that they should have their own Legality rating is just plain stupid. The spook in the party was right when he said you were lucky to get away with a broken jaw.

Unless it's targeted towards another triceratops, I would hope.

Because if you can't do that, what's the point of wildshape?tongue

Scare the gaming group by making them fight 2 CR 5 demons at level 2. Also do not freak the hell out of them by killing them then telling them it was an illusion.
