Don't take my statement as discouragement. Please, continue to actively attempt to exploit and subvert. My statement was made to clarify my position so that you guys understand where I'm coming from. I'm stating outright that I'm going to actively undermine you, not that I'm forbidding you to try.
Fun is ultimately the name of the game. Some people don't have fun when they think that the GM is arbitrarily shooting down their ideas. Others consider it a challenge. I'm going to forbid the attempts that I (arbitrarily) determine don't fit within the spirit of Erfworld, but if something is within the rules, I'll allow it and just change the rules later if I think it's too much. (See perma-stun for an example; dance-fighting zombies led by Tod instead of Bill for another.) Note that Ansom used the Leadership/Foolamancy/Dance Fighting exploit "within the rules" in Book 1; creative combos will be allowed.
Also, responses are going to be somewhat slow this week. I'm on a customer's site, and the hotel wifi sucks, so I won't be checking in and responding as frequently as I normally do.
