The "Common" language bugs me. Always has. Total cop-out.

That, and everyone running around towns with wild animal companions, armed and armoured everywhere, etc.

I have run games where, when the party finally killed off the main baddie, they had to get out of town fast, because the badguy was a prominent personage in town, and they just murdered him… Time for a hemp necktie party.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Most fantasy role-playing games are set in medieval or ancient times, except with the added fictional element of fantasy. Yet many FRPs get the "medieval" part wrong, and make egregious historical mistakes. Which ones bother you the most?
