You couldn't afford me, darling.

Though for cute, red-headed halflings, I may be tempted to say 'the first one is always free.'.

I am no longer allowed to advocate the murder of all of the prisoners.

Even if everyone else I've seen both conscious and imprisoned was a demon.

Even if most of them successfully killed me.

I am no longer allowed to propose character builds with more than four arms.

This includes combinations of hair and tentacles.

I am no longer allowed to say, "No, we shouldn't kill the little girl", because we all now know that all little girls we run into in PFS scenarios are either: halfing alchemists in disguise, demons in disguise, winter witches in disguise...

you get the point!

Grand Lodge 4/5 Venture-Agent, Nevada—Las Vegas aka kinevon

Am I still allowed to say the wight's a wimp?

Every time I GM him, he dies without hitting anyone, even if he manages to make an attack. Yet I hear where he manages to kill off someone else's PCs. :(

Spoiler:
1) He starts prone, and if you aren't within a 5' step of him, he won't vbe able to get an attack off in the first round.

2) His attack bonus if only +4, and he goes against normal AC, so anyone who is close to him when he reacts and stands up should have an AC that is at least 15, if not higher.

So, unless the party gets unlucky, and the GM rolls high, and the PCs attacking him roll low, he is unlikely to get an attack, much less heiut anyone, on average.

Sorry, ran this last night, and the person who got close enough to get a response from him was just far enough away to be outside of 5' range. :( Maybe I should have had him 5' step toward the fighter and ready an attack, instead? Of course, then the archers would have brought him down while he was readied.

Oh, well, I get another chance with him in October, at VirtuaCon '13.

Spoiler:
Bwhahaha!

don't open:
Explosive runes! (I told you not to open this spoiler)


Spoiler:
Last time I played, he one shotted a pc. Then that pc got up and one shotted another pc. I wouldn't call him a wuss after that.

I am no longer allowed to use multiple castings of Mount to abuse falling object rules and drop horses on creatures with low Reflex Saves.

I may not refer to the tengu as a giant chicken, a chicken I tell you, a giant chicken!

I am not allowed to attack the darkness.

"Get off my lawn!" is not a verbal component of Hand of the Apprentice, even when playing Ezren.

I am not allowed to sell "oops" insurance (especially in Riddleport).

It does if you have a convenient balcony. It's a little hard on the horse, but, eh.

I am no longer allowed to use the terms "sheath" "long" "hard" or "grasp" while having a conversation with an intelligent longsword that I happened to be holding. Or the terms "holding" or "hands" for that matter...

Are you sure? Because I'm pretty sure that it is supposed to work like that.

I am not allowed to drink a potion to give myself a temporary wizard level and memorize all "baleful polymorph" spells (Blackmoor, not PFS, but good)

I am not allowed to have my animal companion sit on the Paracountess to keep her out of the way so we can fight.

I am no allowed to wander about the fight invisibly looking for a good opening near the barbarian with the greataxe.

I cannot, under any circumstances, cast a burning hands spell at the two rogues caught in the web trap because they'll "totally make the save."

I am not allowed to breathe acid at the bad guy without warning party members I have that power.

Flutter is no longer allowed to belly rub the rust monsters.

Flutter is not allowed to break the scenario.

Ugthar the spine crusher and Tenpotinmo the wizard breaking a scenario make DM's reconsider PFS. Flutter breaking the scenario makes them reconsider life.

I am no longer allowed to build Muscle Wizards, be they powered by martial prowess, arcane might or cult of Personality.

I am no longer allowed to throw monkey wrenches in the GM's plot by killing a vital NPC and myself by falling down a set of stairs, off a ladder or balcony.

I am no longer allowed to suggest that we do things simple and straightforward, as the party will then devolve into Machiavellian scheming as something has to be up if I'm making reasonable suggestions.

I am no longer allowed to pull out an item of minor importance that the group picked up ages ago and use it to solve the complex puzzle the GM just laid out for us because he forgot we had it.

I am forever banned from having an actual chess game against the Half Ogre's player instead of simply role playing it.

I am no longer allowed to work with the GM and have the party find out I was the BBEG the whole time, and have me take over as the GM brings in the reoccurring villan to aid the party in the final battle.

I just really liked this thread, sooo...

I am no longer allowed to name the ogre we tamed.

I am especially not allowed to name the ogre we tamed "Leroy."

The party is also pretty clear that I am not allowed to tame ogres.

From a GM perspective, I am not allowed to have the dark stalker bad guy taunt the PCs for not buying oils of Daylight, even if it is in-character.

I am no longer allowed to tell the party that a piece of information is unimportant just because I didn't make my knowledge roll (I am the Master of All Things Arcane, and I know EVERYTHING that is important!)

I am no longer allowed to tell Kyra that she "obviously" doesn't know enough about religion.

Also, I am no longer allowed to be the party Face, even though I am trained in Diplomacy, and even have an Ioun Stone to boost my diplomacy score up to an amazing.... +0.

No, really, you do really want to just give us the Macguffin. It is a minor thing, nothing someone with your limited abilities would be concerend with

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (1) + 0 = 1

SIGH

Oh, balderdash, I say! This is absolutely a fine and scholarly list of the most amusing actions to take or plans to make. If you are letting a little thing like GM adjudication get in your way, you sir, are a lazy defeatist! ;)

As a side note, I am no longer allowed to insist that my cure wands are suppositories.

But that's why my Cleric PCs are named Fonzie, Richie, and Pottsie, so I can tell the other players to, "Sit on it!" if they want to get healed. ;)

Spoiler:
None of the above is true, it just seemed like a funny thing to write. My apologies if it offended anyone.
