(More than) 750 things Mr. Welch can no longer do in an RPG is a list of actions PCs (personified as "Mr. Welch") should never take in a role-playing game. While many of the entries are based on actual games, other entries are entirely fictional. Inspired by "Skippy's List: The 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army", the RPG-specific list was originally posted as "1,150 things Mr. Welch can no longer do during an RPG" on TheGlen's blog, which he copied to RPGnet in the thread "250 things Mr. Welch can no longer do in a RPG". The list was subsequently expanded by many authors across several threads, most recently "750 things Mr. Welch can no longer do in a RPG". A similar list from the perspective of a GM is "1001 things Mr. Raymond can't do when he GMs". 750 things Mr. Welch can no longer do in a RPG:

  554. Not allowed to make a character that will have 30 strength by the time they're level 13 using Savage Species progressions and wield a large greatsword as an ancestral relic with a huge greatclub as a backup weapon just because she has monkey grip and can easily afford the -2 to the attack roll ever again.
  555. Not allowed to make a Lythari Psion with Vow of Poverty who gains the Saint template ever again.
  556. No, the Woodling cannot cast Shillelagh on her arm even though her natural slam attack does do the same damage as a club wielded by someone of her size category.

  569. Greatsword sledding is not (and never will be!) a professional sport.

  1002. When the game starts with the local Baron chasing you into a dungeon, doubling back to loot the Baron's castle while he's not home may upset the GM.

  1023. If I want to change the plan, I shouldn't be last in initiative, even if I am captain.
  1024. I should not walk in and out of the prison with our captain, even if it’s the easiest way. Everyone else wants a turn to be the star.
  1025. My 'Irish' accent shouldn’t continually slip into ‘Real Pirate’, even if I am one.

  1063. Full-throated Wookiee roars are not appropriate in a fantasy game, and they are certainly not Dwarfish mating calls.

  1072. I am not to summon Thoqqua to undermine the castle's foundations even if I think that the king's a jerk.
  1073. It is against the rules to summon non-flying creatures 30 ft. above another person. Celestial Bison are not 'flying creatures'. Neither are Celestial Whales, even they are aerodynamic, and references from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will not change anyone's minds.

  1075. Neither Pulchritude nor Girth are game-relevant statistics.
