2426-2450 [Aug. 17th, 2016|06:31 pm]

2426.  Cleaning out the dungeon doesn't involve dressing up like ghosts and trying to scare them out.
2427.  The positive energy plane doesn't charge a cover charge.
2428.  Not allowed to see if its possible to drown someone in a barrel filled with healing potions.
2429.  Can't apply the holy avenger traits to siege weapons.
2430.  The halfling wizard can't exploit the short rest rules by abusing the use of a papoose.
2431.  A mandingo is not an Australian lycanthrope.
2432.  If I have to guard the AV-8 during the black ops, no entertaining myself with the PA system, ejection seat or cluster munitions.
2433.  I can't fill my yard with adventurer shaped statues to convince people it's a Medusa lair so they fight me with their eyes closed.
2434.  When I'm told a giant version of a creature is acceptable for my animal companion, that doesn't include the tortoise.
2435.  Using dogs to keep late watch is fine, howler monkeys not so much.
2436.  I will not be the sole reason Carnivale is canceled this year.
2437.  If another player's character has all the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder, a Cure Disease spell won't help.
2438.  Not starting the adventure until we have exactly one elf in the party is not Tolkienism.
2439.  Pointing out the gun will break the character's shoulder if fired in that position is not they meant as a trigger warning.
2440.  Scots do not go up faster in direct sunlight faster than vampires.
2441.  My Rogue Trader's crew will notice if she left out Savior Pods to make room for a bigger shoe closet.
2442.  Firepower is not an appropriate substitute for the Fellowship stat.
2443.  We are not sneaking into the Golden Throne disguised as a documentary crew.
2444.  No, I really don't want to know the Profit Factor cost for insurance on my Grand Cruiser is.
2445.  When facing the terrasque can't just gate in a black ball and sit back and watch.
2446.  No complaining after the black ball takes out the terrasque when it starts doing donuts on the treasure pile.
2447.  No threatening the aboleth with telling the Cajun restaurant his location.
2448.  Acererak doesn't care about the Tomb of Horror's Yelp rating.
2449.  Even if my musketeer just tore Richelieu from the French throne, I didn't just break the Cardinal rule.
2450.  If the Storyteller gives me a drama die at about 70 mph and aimed at my face, it wasn't a compliment.

Pardon my ignorance, but what's a black ball?

That's about the only one I didn't get this run, had to Google some of the stuff, couldn't find the one above. Pretty good batch, this one. Though I disagree with the one about Scots not going up in sunlight fast...I speak from experience on that one :P

Black ball is a monster from the Mystara setting in D&D. A six foot tall sphere of annihilation that serves as that setting's boogieman. Anything that touches it goes piff. It was a weapon left over from a God War on the planet.

Ah, that does sound rather effective. And lol at the donuts on the treasure pile.
