DungeonPunk Counter-Manifesto

The DungeonPunk Counter-Manifesto
  1. If it's in a Dungeon and needs your help, it's a trap.
  2. Use the environment. That's what it's there for.
  3. Them fearing you is half the battle. You'd better look the part, punk.
  4. The Rules are your friend, as is the weapon of your choice. Never forget that.
  5. The Dungeon Master isn't your friend. And shouldn't be.
  6. If you can't beat it alone, cooperate with the pack. Nothing's changing? Flee.
  7. It's not called an adventure, it's called a sandbox. The sandbox is not your friend.
  8. Everything comes with a price. If the price is right, do it.
  9. Trust the thief to do his job. It will also mean he's stealing from you. If you are the thief, deny that.
  10. Trust the fighter to do his job. If you're the fighter: do your job!
  11. Be nice to the magic-user, he might get powerful (if he lives). If you're the magic-user, write down their names now, misdirect fire balls later.
  12. Believe! If you're the cleric: make them.
  13. Remember: demi-humans might not have a soul.
  14. Your life being cheap doesn't mean they shouldn't pay.
  15. And it's all right, if you can get away with it. 
  16. You owe no one.
  17. Use your brain.
If you have any more of those, please post them in the comments.

A World of DungeonPunk

Live is cheap in the world of DungeonPunk. Corrupting humanity was easy enough, now the Monsters are in charge. Not that they changed that much, but they take what they want. And so should you, punk. The world lies in ruins and is yours to take. A club is cheap enough, take one and go for the dungeons. Killing is easy enough, you see that every day on the streets of the slums you call your home. Take your friends. Who else is going to cover your back? If the authorities are coming for you, let them feel your anger. If you're lucky, they'll fear you someday in the future. If you live that long. Now go and loot. Gold can buy you a new arm, a magical sword even or a shiny new armor, but finally it will buy you freedom. And always remember: a Cleric will stitch you together every time, but a Mage will make you better.

This had to happen. I had no choice in it. Read the whole story here.
