Things Mikkel Madsen is Not Allowed to Do:
« on: May 23, 2015, 06:23:54 PM »
Tuuri's going through some books when she finds an old beat-up notebook. Picking it up she reads the handwritten title: "Ting jeg ikke lov til at gøre." (Things I'm not allowed to do.) Curiosity gets the better of her, and she opens it, to find the list below. The items are written in different colored inks, some older, some newer, some items crossed out or amended, all in the same handwriting. Tuuri reads item after item, eyes growing wider and wider, and she realizes that the true puzzle about Mikkel is not how he manages to get fired so often, but how he manages to get hired.

May I suggest adding "I am not allowed to diagnose my superior officers with face cancer"?

Not permitted to diagnose officers with illnesses that do not exist.
Not permitted to diagnose anyone with illnesses that do not exist.
Not permitted to diagnose anyone with illnesses "in late stages of development".
Not permitted to work on new illnesses.
Not permitted to blackmail mages into doing same.

(If there had been any previous missions into the Silent Lands before, I'ld also add "not permitted to redirect missions so as to raid pre-Rash B weaponry sites".)

Not allowed to advise people to take up smoking on the grounds that "Tobacco's a herb, so it's practically medicine!"
If someone advises me to "Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it!", I shall not actually put it in my pipe and smoke it.
Shrapnel wounds do not count as "recieved in the line of duty" if they are the result of my "medicinal alcohol"-still exploding.
The medicinal alcohol I can draw from the medical depot is plenty potent, and there is no need for me to make my own.
