No! Don't encourage rule breaking. The foundry is designed to work with certain mission and story types. They aren't here for massive mob combat, not here for RP environments, or dialogue-tree click and wins. The missions are designed for a mixture of dialogue and 3-5 combat encounters. To do otherwise is to raise the specter of rule breaking. We aren't here to push the envelope of storytelling, that is Cryptic's job. Our job as foundry authors is to provide the best stories which fit within the EULA rules of content creation.
