Just a reminder that this is not a good idea.RCon wrote:Here's one I wouldn't think the Team should have to post, but it seems we do. When a DM says No, do not go shopping for another DM hoping to get another answer.
For instance, if you ask a DM to rebuild your PC and he/she says No, do not continue to ask other DMs. If you ask for XP to be returned, and the DM says No, do not shop for another DM to say yes. Ditto for items, gold, PrC unlocks, etc.
So what is DM Shopping ?
1. You want to do something and are not sure if it is allowed. You contact a DM and ask if you can do that. The DM does not give you the answer you wanted to hear.
2. You contact another DM and ask the same question - without mentioning that you have already asked someone else. This one gives you the answer you want to hear, so you think you have permission to do it. The second one is unaware that you asked the first one and has quite innocently given you a different answer.
3. If you still don't get the answer you want, then you contact another DM, etc.
This is DM Shopping - do NOT do it. It may well get you Banned
If you have a problem with the first answer and think the Team should reconsider, send a PM to the Dungeon Masters explaining the situation. Include the complete request, the reason for the request, the name of the DM you spoke with, and if possible, a log of the conversation.
