    Default Things I May No Longer Do While Playing VI: This Isn't A Checklist, We Swear!

    Welcome to the sixth installment in this thread series. As usual, we are always willing to lend a kind ear to your frustrations on things that have been banned, vetoed or just plain killed off at your table. Previous threads are listed below:

    [Any] Things I may no longer do while playing.
    Things I May No Longer Do While Playing II: Stop Making The DM Cry
    Things I May No Longer Do While Playing III: I May Not Iron Heart Surge Rule Zero
    Things I May No Longer Do While Playing IV: The Decanter of Endless Bad Ideas
    Things I May No Longer Do While Playing V: Pun & Pun, Rules-Attorneys at Law

    Note: if you're going to use numbers, please keep the numbering in order. This means:
    1) don't add sub-rules to previous numbers--people will think that number is the current one
    2) look to make sure that the last post isn't a sub-rule to a previous number

    I suggest using asterisks, though, as the first thread did.

    **No, "A wizard could do it better," is not a valid argument for why you should be allowed to play the character.
    ***Not allowed to play a Tier 1 class to make the DM wish he had let me play the other character instead.

    *No longer allowed to choose spells tha might ruin the campaign( it wasn't a powerful spell, just lay of the land)

    *No matter ho much fun is, throwing and batting like balls celestial fire is frowned upon.

    -Even if the monkeys do not really suffer

    *I'm not allowed to name the celestial monkey Kong(summon moster 1), even if he manage to kill a orc leader.

    *Summoning creature just to see their looks while fun might risk the ire of the Dm.


    *A lanter archon must be use as a lantern
    -Even if the character has no grades in knowledge planes, and has never been in celestia.
    -I cannot poke said archon with a stick to make light
    - Hearing a new voice inside your head doesn't mean madness, just that someone might be trying to speak with you.

    -Burning a celestial forest cannot be summarized with Ops
