Some of my favs from the last couple pages.
1273. Any character that makes a seasoned Rifts player flinch is vetoed, and shall never be spoken of again.
Seasoned Rifts Player here. I actually talked my GM into letting me play an Adult Great Horned Dragon with 12 levels of an over powered class called Runecaster.
Or another character who was literally capable of killing everyone in a large city (like New York city) in one round, nearly killing himself in the process, and be back to full MDC (which was just over 4 and a half million) in only 3 minutes, without any gear whatsoever(though a jet pack or other method of getting above the city does help). When he asked for my damage roll his eyes bulged and he coughed when I told him I was doing 456D6x10 MD to each target (oh, the attack auto-hits everything in range regardless of armor or cover and only forcefields or magical shields can block it, it can't do any damage to either. Though, if your within 5 feet of the edge you are allowed 'roll with punch/fall/impact' for half damage), and double damage to undead, stills hits incorporeal or intangible targets and those on the astral plane. No damage to robots, buildings, or anything completely artificial.
He had a thing against incorporeal undead and went into a rage. He's normally a sweet lovable monster who is big into meditation and religious study. No, really, first thing he did after finding himself on earth was study our holy books and send letters to George Lucas telling him all the things he got wrong in the Star Wars universe.
1324. If another player took the Disadvantage: Stutters, I can’t play a K’Kree.
I nearly coughed up a lung laughing at this one.
1437. High recoil guns and roller skates are not an accepted method of transportation.
The visual image there was wonderful. On a similar note: a good knockout punch and the flaw - "levitates while asleep or unconscious" was rather effective. Of course, this is resultant of the guy who's two most notable characters were created in an accident with a microwave and non-dairy creamer. "Do YOU know what happens when you mix a microwave and non-dairy creamer?"
1517. Checking to see if the Mad Slasher is dead is ok, dismembering him with a shotgun is overkill.
The guy who draws Schlock Mercenary does most of his drawing at our local game store. Sometimes he joins us in our crazy games. He made this and put it on the wall, then he published it and they are now available through Warehouse 23 (though they are currently out of stock).
I assume 1549 is a reference to the French castle scene from Monty Python?
On a more general note, I love this list. It really makes me want to get my Red Dwarf game going soon, so we can do this kind of crazy stuff.
Oh, and I was reminded of this list when a friend of mine sent me a pic of a 4chan thread on awesome gaming moments. Party walks into a room, there's a pit in it. Party is supposed to fall in the pit, they solve an easy puzzle, and voila, loot. But no, the guy playing the 8 INT dwarven fighter has other ideas. He states that he sits down, mid-air, and uses his dwarven stubbornness to kill the pit. The GM *very* reluctantly agrees, if he can pull off 2 100's in a row. He does. The pit implodes, leaving him sitting calmly on the floor.
Actually it had nothing to do with that, it was us trying to assassinate a crooked politician in the middle of a modern metropolis in the most noticeable way possible.
There's something TOTALLY wrong about a shugenja (or any spellcaster) who can administer a beatdown with just a stick. Spellcasters are supposed to be physically weak, aren't they?
Most of my mages have some sort of weapon proficiency in case the magic runs out or doesn't work.
"Why does your sorcerer have an adamant bastard sword?"
"Because golems are immune to magic..." *lifts sword* "but not to this."
1567. I don't get to play anybody's Shadow.
Why not? There is a new Mekhet bloodline where you get to basically do exactly that. :-D
Actually, it was him SPECIFICALLY that can't play a shadow.
Don't let the minotaur hug you.
Apparently it IS possible to become the Fortune of Incompetence if you roll badly enough in Legend of the Five Rings.
The flaw 'lecherous' combined with the flaw 'can't lie' makes for a whole lot of getting slapped.
Roosters don't have snooze buttons.
I dunno, hitting it with a large blunt object seems to work pretty well for a snooze alarm :P
To have that kind of mind makes you either genious or idiot and I can't decide what... Either way you seem like a fellow I would like to talk with and I don't usually use lj. So if you want you can mail at me <3 koori at mbnet dot fi
And answer do your question is yes those are my boobs
Just got a new one from our EarthDawn session tonight:
I will not demand Legend Point Awards for backstabbing the rest of the party.
I'm actually in favor of the Mr. B Natural ruling. That would make my GM break down crying.
Today, I got permission from our DM for my rogue to dose the paladin with LSD. I am very excited about this.
That sounds like it could be fun. Let us know what happens :P
1626. I am not allowed to use the list for inspiration.
I'm in the middle of finding someone to run a Red Dwarf RPG campaign, and I intend to do just that :P Especially taking a specialization in defenestration.
These are a few that I've found/been cautioned on/been rockfalled* over by the GM in a campaign I participate in on the weekends.
For reference, this is an epic-level campaign run using D&D v.4.0 rules, and I currently have a lv.27 Dwarf Wizard who has a height complex.
1626 - If my GM offers to give me a feat that grants a +2 bonus on every roll in exchange for always staying in character, with a curse that causes me to fall prone for minimum five rounds when I violate it without a good explanation, my explanation cannot be "Hrun Helmsplitter is partially insane and occasionally mumbles things to himself that make little or no sense to nonwizards. It has to do with the way he was trained."
1627 - Even if she's pulled the same trick five times on this floor of the dungeon, I will not ready an action to hit the Halfling Rogue with a Force Sphere if she says "I think I see something shiny over there" and proceeds to activate a lever to set off a trap at the rest of the party.
1628 - I am not allowed to use chatspeak as my mystic chant when casting with an extra somatic component.
1629 - If my character can more 300 feet in one move action at level one, he is vetoed. (A result of my trying to create a Druid at the beginning of the campaign and noting that if I took a certain wildshape feat I could constantly stay in a form that gave me more speed than any sub-level-20 monster and a base attack higher than the half-orc barbarian)
1630 - Even if it is a natural roll, I cannot have a half-orc barbarian at level 1 with Strength, Charisma, Wisdom, Dexterity, and Constitution of 18 without modifiers and Intelligence of 3 with modifiers. (Yes, this really happened.)
1631 - I am not allowed to research any spell from the Book of Erotic Fantasy. No exceptions. Ever. Especially not the penis-spiders.
1632 - Even if the rules of the rather poorly-written GM-created feat allow it, I cannot use the above mentioned "stay in-character" feat to point out that it's not physically possible for someone to carry 100 feet of rope with them.
1633 - I will not point out that all Water spells break the law of conservation of matter. If I choose to do so I immediately get hit by a Flash Flood spell sent by angry demigods with no save.
1634 - If my Magic Missile spell crits the door I will not complain about the fact that the wood was blown to splinters but the steel-reinforced paneling was left behind.
1635 - Even if the lock is made entirely out of stone and scaled for a Titan I will not have my Dwarf Wizard attempt to pick the lock with the blunt end of his warhammer/staff.
1636 - Any combination of feats that would allow my character to solo the Tarrasque, loot its body, and get back to town within one round is vetoed before it is written down, regardless of the level I attempt to implement it at. I will be locked out of the GM's room if I attempt to sneak said combination into my character.
1637 - I am not allowed to dual-wield Quickened Wands of Magic Missile.
1638 - Talking is a free action. But only on the ground. Attempting to fit ten minutes of dialogue in the amount of space it takes a flying kick to connect from ten feet away is not acceptable.
1639 - I cannot invent the Internet within Faerun. Period.
1640 - I cannot make my Elven interim character 1337 years old just to make meme jokes.
I have quite a few more, but I can't remember them at the moment.
*As in "rocks fall, everyone dies."

Re: Got a few new ones for you.
...crushing everyone to death with rocks in response seems rather harsh o_O Rewinding time, maybe, a "that didn't happen", yeah, but killing everyone, sheesh.
A paladin with NO points in knowledge: religion is just *&(%^&ing STUPID.
Lawful Sarcastic and Chaotic Stupid aren't real alignments either.
No plan should EVER have to rely on a huge geyser of fresh, steaming $#!t at ANY point, for ANY reason.
On a related note, blowing up a city's sewer system probably shouldn't be done either.
Yeah, I mean, who wants to smell poo gas?
Despite all evidence to the contrary, explosions do not solve everything.
Heh, tell that to the Mythbusters.
