These are funny. But maybe you mean: "Things a Player Character is not allowed to do"?

Strike that.. These are hilarious! :lol:

Well, you wouldn't be the first to almost pass out from asphyxiation while/after reading this *points at self :heh:*

It likely came from here. Most of the things on the original list (The 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army) are true or have been genuinely discussed by his superior officers in anticipation. :)

That is correct. You're not.

[1. Cannot base characters off the Who's drummer Keith Moon.]

We actually had a fight with three orcs based on the Who. (Not an entirely serious campaign).

[74. My thief's battle cry is not "Run And Live"]

I did have a merchant character in Runequest whose battle cry was "Not in the face!"

[271. Tracheotomies are best left to characters with skills in medicine.]

I once played in a champions campaign in which one PC accidentally killed an NPC when two very poor first aid rolls led to a botched, unnecessay tracheotomy.

If only we'd had these rules in play.
