AS a DM, I haave certain rules and regulations that I require of my players. As such, I have no out-of-control PCs, though NPCs may run rampant. The house rules are as follows:
1) THE RULING OF THE DM IS ALWAYS FINAL. 2) Alert the DM if the DM breaks a rule. The DM will review the broken rule and correct the error purely at his own purveiw. 3) Elves are evil. ALWAYS. 4) All elite characters can cast animal friendship as the spell at will, except that it is applicable to animals, beasts, and magical beasts. 5) PCs cannot talk to NPCs about ranks, levels, or alignments (unless the NPC is an outsider of an aligned plane). 6) Epic level CANNOT be achieved without the DM's permission. In this case, epic level refers to class levels, not LA or ECL. 7) All PC suggestions will be immidiatly rejected until review by the DM. Post review, see rule #1. 8) NO WHINING. 9) PCs can be replaced. Be nice. 10) Respect the DM. 11) Respect other PCs. 12) Respect the stuff of others. 13) The only D&D book available to PCs during a play session is the Player's Handbook. 14) D&D is a role-playing game. Play as your character would, not as you would. 15) STAY FOCUSED. You're here to play the game, not to chit-chat.
