Things You are No Longer Allowed to Do in an RPG:

 1101 Tuefel Hunden IV, Fri, 17th Aug '12 9:12:23 AM from Wandering. Relationship Status: [TOP SECRET]
Watchmen of the Apocalypse
I am not permitted to sacrifice the Halfing to appease the god of the dice rolls.
"Who watches the watchmen?"

  • If awoken in the middle of the night while the rest of the party is asleep, killing them "just in case they were possessed in their sleep" is not the proper thing to do.
    • If the party goes to sleep without anyone standing watch, must remind them to do so.
      • May not volunteer for first watch.
  • "YA RLY" is not an acceptable Bond One-Liner.

  • I will stop picking the pockets of my party members when they aren't looking.
  • I will not pick their pockets when they ARE looking. Even if I CAN do it without them noticing.
  • I will not refuse to pay people too dangerous to steal from.
  • I will not replace the paladins valuable gold(plated?) holy "symbol pendant thing" with a painted piece of wood/copper.
  • Holy water is not alchoholic no matter what my alignment is.

My players have amassed a decent one in only three sessions. Here's what they've been glared at over so far:

1.Cannot be Jedi Master Yoda.
2:You are neither Luke nor Anakin Skywalker.
3:Cannot use Larcany checks to steal virginity, pride, integrity, or will to live.
3a:You cannot use Larceny checks to steal the ability to cast spells.
4:Cannot use a Bluff check to convince someone you killed them.\ 5: Not allowed to make a seduction check on every sentient being you see.
6: Not allowed to make a seduction check on inanimate objects.\ 7: I don't care what your Athletics score is, you're not punching a hole in a two-foot-thick concrete wall.
8:Bates will always roll exactly 1 more than Jaysin. No matter the circumstance. (This happened no less than eight times during the first two sessions.)
9:You can invoke obscure rules to harm an enemy, but not to harm your team-mate. Even if he is being a dick.
10: Just because I allow a PVP scene at the beginning of the game does not give you free reign to treat this as a game of Munchkin.
11: Your assassin is not Kirby nor Mega Man; he doesn't gain an enemy's powers by eating them.
12: I don't care what your Athletics score is, you are forbidden from tossing an ally who is a foot taller than you.
13: Not allowed to ride a Fairy Companion the size of your hand.
14: Remember Rule Zero, because the GM and the other player are both veteran gamers and will find the actual written rule that says you can't do a given action.
15: You may not design a custom hooker.
16: Not allowed to say "quick, hide behind the pile of dead bards" while the bard is in the room.
17: Not allowed to take hookers to masquerades.
18: Not allowed to mention Slenderman while gaming unless you want to switch to Call of Cthulhu.

  • Bosses do not exist in Star Wars Saga if Jedis are in the party.
    • Especially if said Jedi(s) know Force Grip bcause lolturndenial on a d20+16 roll is as broken as that boss's spine.

Ahhh... Star wars games.

So horribly unbalanced.

I swear it's like the designers threw darts at a board.

SO MUCH ACTION ECONOMY FAILURE.

At first, I thought Spoony's advice to make the party all Jedi or no Jedi was just full of it and such. Not really.

But that's over now and I made it clear in no uncertain terms that I am never going near that system ever again.

Its not too bad if you play without Force sensitives in your party. But characters do get stupidly overpowered starting at mid level and every class has ways to basically snap the balance over their collective knee.

I'm in a Star Wars campaign, playing as the Sith for our party. I'm not the most overpowered member of our party. That would be our gunship that our GM foolishly let us have. We now have plans to solve all of our problems with that glorious gunship.

Yeah, I shattered space battle difficulty after the GM gave us a windfall of funds to upgrade our ship and I took the Ace Pilot prestige class.

Eight words to explain why I hate Star Wars Saga.

Level 3 Jedi beats level 9 boss solo.

Actually, I'll do you one better; two words.

Force Grip.

Holy water is not alchoholic no matter what my alignment is.

Your GM just doesn't know how to manage a party.
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

Fresh from Gen Con:

  • If the theme of the game is supposed to be "Japanese High School dating drama, " crossovers with Breaking Bad and Marble Hornets are forbidden awesome. Yeah

We were playing a game called called Gx B, which is designed to emulate Japanese dating sims. One player takes turns taking each player on a date, while the other players jump in with strange situations and NPC's to try and screw those dates up. My friend Jake played the main character, turned her into a total slut who kept giving her number to other guys while she was out on dates, up to and including "Antonio, the world's most famous extra" and Slender Man. Evebntually, she settled down with the tough guy at school and started a meth lab, ended up killing Antonio when she ran into him in a police costume for his next big role, and apparently made good on her promise to sleep with Slendy.

It's supposed to emulate Japanese games.

Of course it's weird.

Regarding another player in a Dark Heresy campaign: I don't care about the typo on that chart, you are not playing a nine year old assassin with a collection of blades and guns that weigh more than him twice over.

Watchmen of the Apocalypse
Not allowed to snipe the story critical villain from a klick away with with anti-material rifle I saved enough to purchase. No not even with incendiary explosive round
"Who watches the watchmen?"

  • No matter what the dice say, not allowed to kill a major recurring villain and completely derail the plot. Especially if I'm the Bard.
  • When the GM said "Bard gets to pick the music, " that wasn't encouragement to set the campaign to Tenacious D.
  • Not allowed to attach a bayonet of any shape to my bardic instrument, especially if it's bagpipes.
  • My bardic instrument is not a musical Tesla coil.
  • No matter what the rules say, not allowed to charge ten rings with the Fire and Brimstone spell and set them all to fire with the same keyword, doing upwards of sixty damage in one turn at level one.

Those were all for DQ.

Legend:
  • Even though Legend doesn't have an alignment system, the Paladin's battle cry is not "smoke meth, hail Satan!"

GURPS:
  • Not allowed to take the disadvantages that simulate kleptomania, sociopathy, etc. "because that's how Player Characters are expected to act anyway."

I (and my entire party) are no longer allowed to kill every single shop owner aligned with the enemy and raid their shop, making stupid amounts of money in a very short time.

As a GM I'm not allowed to use sniper rifle, bulletproof vest and high vantage point while referring to the same enemy.

I think there's no point in signatures.
