Breaking the Game

It happens from time to time, sometimes a player finds a rule and exploits it to the point the GM bans that rule and sometimes the players make something the GM never expects ruining the plans, this is what we like to call breaking the game. I've seen it happen a couple of times mostly just the story which any good GM should be able to fix pretty easily, but occasionally there is a rule that goes unnoticed by most but when found by a player and exploited can effectively ruin all of the GM's plan... The rules are not perfect and as a GM you always need to be prepared otherwise you may be out of luck if you come across a player who either unknowingly or knowingly breaks your game/story/campaign.

Heh, heh. I had a guy who I was playing with, and when we got into a town he just claimed, out of the blue, that his character was actually the leader of two prominent cults, a king, a lord, and a famous assassin... all at once. Needless to say, this falls into the category you mentioned of things banned by the GM. XD

The Dark Heresy game I recently finished... Well, I've ranted about our absurd combat builds enough on earlier pages. Rocket Tag: The Campaign was fun even before we became the pilots for giant robots.
My Little Inferno had a few incidents too, but I believe I've related those as well - Weasel VS the mother bear, the semi-provoked murder of a wealthy pony and massacre of half her house staff, et cetera... Textbook case of bloodthirsty/ incompetent characters inadvertently tearing down the GM's plans every step of the way, and Luna forgive me, I loved every minute of it.
