Mixing up a squeal of excitement, with a squeal of excrement, is a sure fire way to ruin a chance meeting with an old friend.

Jumping off the side of the docks in nearly 100lbs of plate armor to swim after an escaping thief will result in your expedient sinkage and drowning, no matter how good you are at swimming.



#68



In a supers game attempting to subdue a suicide bomber wearing several lbs of c-4 by tazering him with the super power "electric blast" will not end successfully.

No matter how skilled your character is in combat, or how ingenious their plan, nothing can overcome the shield of GM immunity. (especially when it's strong enough to prevent the rolling of dice)



#70



No matter how laid back the player or forgiving the character, having said god NPC belittle and otherwise act overly un-intimidated by the character will cause a sharp spike in player (and character) frustration level.



#71



Compounding said action with links to "zero fucks given" posters to better portray just how unaffected by your char they are, will in no way alleviate the frustration.

#16 If I (the DM) ever say "Do you really want to do that?"- DON'T DO THAT.

#17 Four ten year olds will quickly turn into an elite adventuring group, given tough enemies to face.

#18 When faking your friend's death, attacking them in broad daylight is NOT the answer.

#19 Doom falls upon all of those who would give the temple of no purpose a purpose.

#20 When the cleric starts the campaign drunk, you know to stack a little more defense into your build.

#21 While the DM is often an evil bastard who is out to kill you, being so paranoid that you take forever to get to the actual battle/trap/danger is just as likely to kill you as whatever trap MIGHT be there. Go to Comment

26: The biggest obstacles to online campaigns are timezones, sleep schedules, technical difficulties, and distractions.

#27 There are days when the dice hate the PCs.  I just love it when low level weenie monsters slaughter my high level character.  Or vice versa being accused of being a killer DM and/or having to save the party from an encounter which should have been a cake walk  (yep, the kobold just rolled another natural 20).



#28 Trying to rob someone the  DM doesn't want you to will result in certain imprisonment or death.



#29  When descibing unique methods of killing an immortal demi-god like villian NPC in most public places will result in awkward glances, people quickly shuffling away from you, and a strange willingness of bystanders to wait for another elevator (or worse another escalator)



#30 Avoiding the adventure that the DM prepared for will result in some pretty strange twists of fate in which you end up on said adventure anyway.

#35 If an entire town is out looking to lynch a suspected murderer... even if you believe he's innocent, when you find him it is best not to go running after him, shouting his name while holding aloft a picture he painted of the victim. He is not likely to believe you have good intentions and might respond poorly.

#64 When the DM asks whether you're standing to the East or West of the mysterious portal, you're on the North side.

#65 There is nothing more useful than a 10-foot pole. Ever.

#66 As a Thief, repeatedly poking fun at the Fighter for having a Cha of 3 in exchange for a Str of 18/00 is a quick way to get your nose remodelled. Go to Comment

Kult, one of the few games where you use a 20 sided dice and it is not a d20system. Kult is also one of those games where I as a GM go the extra mile in graphic and mature content as opposed to CoC. So, over to your submission, I am not a major fan of first-person narratives but this is some fine writing. I became intrigued and wanted to know more about your character and that is a job well done in my book. The fiction section is becoming a place worthy of the citadel. Well done Sil.

Murometz's comment on 2011-02-15 12:15 PM


Gruesome! That is the first word that comes to mind.



I guess the second thought is, "what happens next?", which is my way of saying, I liked the tale. Kept me interested in seeing what Dr. Vile, the fetus-implanter, was up to...

What happened next would be more of a (lengthy) campaign synopsis, the length of a short novel, which I could probably detail in installments if anyone was truly interested... Go to Comment

A very nice 30, and I like the reasoning as well - there's got to be reasons to go into those often-lethal maintenance ducts... :)

Actually, we had a 30 with this theme....



Only, it got to 101.

What about simply adding these to that list? (Also, some of these are duplicate of problems on Scras' list).



Minor issue: legionnaire's disease is caused by a bacterium, not fungus.

They're well written, and some quite inventive.
