this. It's not going in order because I came up with the munchkin one first. Expect more in the coming days. I'm sure the other ones will be obvious.

1) Be positive
2) It's okay for other people to like different styles of play
3) Getting mad about discussions on the internet is a waste of energy
4) Don't feed the trolls.
5) Stay Classy
All in all I feel this is a good list. Now I just need to force it on everyone else out there and the edition wars will be over! Muwahaha! (note to self, villain laugh needs work)

Down time used to be a thing. Moreso in older editions of the vaunted D&D where it could take weeks to heal up regardless of whether or not you had a cleric available. Even without the healing rules there was an implication of time space between adventures for the characters to do other things. Like training and getting into other sorts of trouble. Also item crafting in certain editions. Which does create a slightly more sensible leveling curve. Rather than zero to hero in a few weeks or months it takes longer. Also makes more sense in the story related portion of things as to why adventurers don't drop dead from adrenaline poisoning. Is that a thing? Adrenaline poisoning? I don't know enough about biology to know if that is possible but it seems like something that would happen if adventurers lived the lives they have "on screen" all the time.

You know you've arrived as a DM when you can freak your players out over the most innocent of things. It's all a matter of presentation. Like today's motivator. I even went so far as to draw lines on the picture to assure myself there weren't any overlaps. It helps, but if you don't have lines to guide you, it can mess with your eyes significantly. With players in this medium you need to mess with their imaginations more than their eyes.

"Take ten 1st level warriors, in melee with 10 straw dummies (medium inanimate objects, AC5).
The warriors make their 1 attack per round, for 2 minutes (20 rounds); the dummies make no attacks during this time. If, after 2 minutes of battering straw dummies, any of the warriors are dead or dying then the GM must butter his fumble rules and eat them." This wise man was not me. It was a poster on the Order of the Stick forums
Quotes from my saturday evening game:
Pliny: (( I am totally being carried. Why walk when I can ride? ))
Iki: (( can I take the queen's head? ))
LooneyGM: (( if you want ))
Iki: (( woo! ))
Iki: (( I will show it to the people when we return. ))
Haruhi: (( that's our bloodthirsty iki ))
Iki: (( and then hang it over the dining room table. ))
Iki: (( I think there's space over the mantel still... ))
Pliny: (( You only get to do that if you contact a taxidermist! Or the magical equivalent ))
Pliny: (( I'm putting my hoof down on this, I don't want bug dripping on the table! ))
LooneyGM: (( everything is sandwiches with haruhi, isn't it? ))
Haruhi: (( yes. yes it is. ))
I'kishaeila: "...I'm torn on whether i want them having fun killing monsters without us."
I'kishaeila: "And if something... AWFUL... should befall Tellas... I want to be there to laugh."
I'kishaeila: I GAVE YOU LIFE, AND I MEANT FOR YOU TO BE A CAKE.
* I'kishaeila smacks the cake with the spoon as hard as s he can.
Pliny: (( The cake says: You're not my REAL Mom! ))
Pliny: "I really want to know what to blue robed man is up to."
Haruhi: (( Turns out he's Gilderoy Lockhart ))
Boddywynn: (( lol, what did she put in it? ))
Pliny: (( Catnip, and apparently lightning ))
Pliny: (( Damage resist in the hoooouse ))
Pliny: (( Yeah that was awful. I won't say that again. ))
Haruhi: (( all I did was kill your buddy, why all this hostility? ))
Pliny: (( Best friends forever damage! ))
Iki: (( ... he SNEEZED on me? ))
LooneyGM: (( no, it comes out of his arm ))
Iki: (( who sneezes out of their ARM? ))
Haruhi: "I don't know if I want to fly through yellow fog"
Haruhi: "best case scenario it smells awful. Worst case scenario we die."
Haruhi: "I want healzors."
* Haruhi stares at Pliny until he gives healzors
*Pliny inquires if anyone would like traveling music
*Pliny starts singing traveling music before anyone can object
Haruhi: (( lol massive cleavage ))
Haruhi: (( you really BUST 'em up with that ))
* I'kishaeila punches the DM.
I'kishaeila: 1 more xp!
LooneyDM: (( no, no xp for punching the DM ))
I'kishaeila: (( he has XPs ))
LooneyDM: (( I am not an xp pinata ))
* I'kishaeila CHOPS OFF THE TOP.
I'kishaeila: (( it has a short stack now! ))
Boddiwyn: (( as long as we dont get lost, tally ho! ))
Iki: (( if I find out I've gelded the tower... ))
Iki: (( I will feel awkward. yes. Definitely awkward. ))
Pliny: (( Ha ha, we left them with instructions to keep things tidy. We're gonna come back and find a rug in the middle of the room, draped over a huge pile of junk that they tried to sweep under it ))
Rush: "Is I'kishaelia alright?"
Boddiwyn: "She hasnt started screaming yet, so I assume so."
