If it gets to the point where your players back up their actions with documents that could be admissible in a court of law, you may have gone too deep.

The "flourishes with my hair" clause was a last-minute addition and now my favorite part. I imagine Rarity being very particular about what a swish means.

This actually brings up an important detail about my D&D group's GM that is hilariously bad--

Our GM hates note taking. When someone gets a fancy non-magical magic item, he will write the abilities/powers on an index card and give it to the player. His standing house-rule is that if you don't have the abilities written down somewhere, then you don't have them. Because he doesn't write them down. Your note card is basically it.

Which tends to lead to the occasional lost non-magical magic item when a player looses an index card somewhere.

But on the other hand, players like me are pretty well organized and translate the index cards to digital files and then print out a list to attach to the character sheet. I've not only not lost an item, but I have screwed the GM's plans a few times because I have powers on some items he didn't remember. Like the longbow I have that grants me the Spring attack feat (don't ask) so I was kiting between two hidden spots on either side of a doorway and never ending my turn IN the doorway. Thus the enemy archers can't hit me and they have to spend two rounds to reach the doorway, where I popped out to surprise them with a sneak attack and jump back into hiding.

And recently he forgot I hired a Battle Accountant to start a business with my followers. But I have the index card he wrote with the NPC's stats. Now I can make money without adventuring. This annoys him greatly when I pass up danger to instead attend business meetings with clients. :3

Couldn't the archers just have readied an action to fire when you left cover?

I thought Spring Attack was Melee only?

On archers and readied actions: Our GM isn't clever with enemy tactics. The enemy archers went after melee PCs and just ignored my slow assault from cover. >.>

On Spring Attack: Correct, Spring Attack is melee only. I even ran that by him to ensure it wasn't an odd typo on his part, but no, he was sure that I can have the feat for this bow.

Shot on the Run is the ranged equivalent. I think the only difference is pre-reqs which don't matter since it's granted by an item.

A Battle Accountant?

I'm picturing a nerdy Viking busy calculating how much their recent pillage offsets their initial venture costs while the others are busy celebrating and getting drunk.
