Things I Am No Longer Allowed To Do In A Game

Recommended Posts

Inspired by "Things Mr. Welch Is No Longer Allowed To Do In An RPG". You may put multiple things in the same post, and you can give examples from any genre of game. Please remember the 2-post rule.

 

I'll start us off:

  • No matter how precisely I call my shots, I cannot perform eye surgery with a laser weapon.
  • Or any kind of surgery.
  • Or with any weapon.
  • Cannot start a Communist Party in Ancient Rome.
  • The main export of my neighbour's city is not criminals.
  • Character names must be pronounceable.
  • Cannot say "Zvlkx" is pronounced "Steve".

    • Regardless of how high a level my thief is, attempting to steal body parts will be noticed.
    • Shrinking spells are not stronger than the Pauli exclusion principle.
    • I am not allowed to make antipopes.
    • Despite containing all the necessary elements, cannot transmute dead enemies into fuel.
    • Despite containing all the necessary elements, cannot transmute live enemies into fuel.
    • Despite containing all the necessary elements, cannot transmute NPCs into fuel.
    • Despite containing all the necessary elements, cannot transmute PCs into fuel.
    • The RSPCA does not care about cruelty to orcs and neither should my druid.
    • Cannot have the flaw "Allergic to the vacuum of space".

    I am no longer allowed to eliminate the opposition's air, naval and ground assets with a mere shotgun and explosive FRAG-12 shells. :-(

  • No part of the elven anatomy produces sugar, and as such I am no longer allowed to check "just to make sure".

     

    I am no longer allowed to make characters that are direct copies of characters from VALVe games.

     

    Especially GLaDOS.

     

    Not allowed to answer "yes" to "friend or foe?".

     

    The silver lining of a cloud is metaphorical. I am not allowed to mine nor sell clouds.

     

    Not allowed to forge my own signature.

     

    Cannot use complex numbers in my stats.
