    * If my players gave a plan involving electricity, I may not ask for their intended current, voltage, the resistivity of their chosen medium, and so on.
    ** Cannot use this as justification for their plan to fail, even if I can show exactly why.
    *** It is especially bad form to show that a) the voltage is high enough to reach them and B) the current is high enough to kill them.
    **** Cannot follow this up by pointing out that 90% of their electronics have also suffered damage.
    ***** Most of all, the plan cannot fail because the villain stuck capacitors and inductors at various locations in the building not connected to a power supply just in case.

    I'll be running either Legend of the Five Rings or a homebrew Sci-Fi setting later this year, if the players are smart they'll pick the second and exploit every advantage the system gives them (say, highly accurate lasers, a variety of cybernetic implants, or a mesh-network computer infrastructure). At which point I'll hardball by applying engineering principles to the bad guy's hideout.

    * Cannot run a Sci-Fi setting with no psionics and no AGI.

    **I may not play a Battlerager named Leeroy.

    ***Playing a warlock who can speak lots of languages is fine. Being the party face and using charisma skills on everything is expected. Constantly trying to intimidate people when said warlock is a little girl is pushing it.
