Can we have a THAT GUY/GRRL thread, please, /tg/?

Post your horror stories of munchkinism, weeaboos, piss poor character development, bad DMing and other assorted faggotry. I want to get my blood good and angered up.

D&D 3e.

We had a THAT GUY, albeit a rather uninteresting one.

Whilst we were pursuing a bunch of NPCs during a military coup, we were lured into a building that a group of assassins set on fire. Reasoning that if they failed, the building would kill us, and if they succeeded, the building would destroy the evidence, they attacked.

Our Druid turned into an octopus.

In the middle of a burning building.

While being attacked by assassins.

Just to see what'd happen.

To be fair, he later ended up summoning a bison that tore shit through a bunch of Roman legionnaire-type soldiers that outnumbered and outclassed us.

Tried to run a 5-7th level one-off using Castles Forlorn in Ravenloft. These two kids were there, loved to play queer-style. One insisted on playing an Athasian half-giant who could use his massive penis as a whip / mancatcher-type device, while the other was a quickling with a 9000 Dexterity. Half-giant brought all this Lysol and ended up huffing it through rags with the quickling kid right before the bone golem TPKed everyone.

my only THAT GUY experience was an old D&D game we tried (wheel of time i think... or something)

he railroaded us like you would not believe it - and since the girl player rolled poorly and made charisma her dumpstat (5), then said "one night you all get drunk... now she looks a lot prettier, cha 16" - but never removed that bonus from her after that.

also if you dared do anything he didn't want you to do he'd punish you in game quite a lot

to him players were just dice rolling machines that he narrated to.

The gaming club at the large midwestern state college I went to was basically a bunch of THAT GUY/GIRL types. The office reeked of BO and the floor was covered with trash and the neckbeards were regularly caught by janitors or security trying to sleep in it overnight.

1) Fat creepy guy who would drop by campaigns he wasn't in(we got free conference rooms through the club - worth the occasional 'visitor') and linger in the doorway flashing everyone creepy smiles.
2) (Autistic?) 6 foot 400 lb black guy. He'd sit in the club's office playing video games and humming to himself. If anyone he didn't know stopped into the office he STARE at them angrily.
3) TWO girls with facial hair. One had an actual beard, the other had muttonchop side burns ;_;
4) Fat 50 year old guy with a jew fro. Graduated in the 80's and never stopped hanging around campus.
5) Creepy 28 year old guy whose face could have been taken from a textbook entry about fetal alcohol syndrome. Wore trenchcoats regardless of the season. Dated a 17 year old freshman and was always trying to start a 2nd gaming club because he hated the president.

>DM's girlfriend. Unlikely to change since she had that 'keep-a-nigga-baby' with him.

>Whinges at us to 'get on with it' while we're working out stat/equipment stuff because she's too pigshit thick to do it herself and gets the DM to kit her out.

>Nearly cries when she rolls poorly until the DM has to make some pathetic attempt to 'remember' some stat modifiers that she had 'forgotten' in order for her to succeed at the roll. If the roll was too poor even for this she has been known to outright demand a re-roll.

>Attached her character to my character as some kind of forced big brother/little sister relationship. All fine and dandy until my GF decided she wanted to play. THAT GURL whinges that I'll end up with a romantic sub-plot with my GF's character and she'll lose her big brother. I would never do this because of reasons.

I once tried to dm a game by introducing my friends to D&D. but didn't have many players. 'That guy' got wind of it and asked to join. So I told him that if he could come up with a character I found interesting I would let him play...
so he asks for examples of possible motivations so I started listing off possible bare bones motivations... He said "i'll pick that one" no character description.
following this he starts talking about all these munchkin character concepts he has (to use in a sub-optimal predominantly newbie group) so I told him that character stats weren't as important as the real concept.
he then got mad, called me a hypocrite and referenced some 'stormwind falacy', that one can make an optimal character and still role play.

I call bullshit on his argument on the premise I have yet to hear anything about characters from him that are not purely stat based, he would have over shadowed the rest of the group, and none even remotely fit the campaign.

I accept there are outliers, but giving arguments in their favour will just be copy pasted by munchkins

I have two;
First was a thatgurl. With 8 players I didn't take the time to actually look at the charsheets. She played a LG sorceress with 2 hp. Okay. I managed to not kill her outright. Then they sneak into the kings bed chamber to give him a birthday present (youp, that was a mission I gave them) and they're surprised by a maid. One of the other players tries to talk to the maid and then the LG sorceress announces that she stabs the maid. To death.
LG
One of the other players threw the sorc off the balcony and killed her. I was strangely fine with that too.

Second was a that guy. I was doing an introductory run to RPG's for a gaming club. One of the guys who showed up had played a lot and just wanted to be introduced to someone else who played DnD. I had characters ready to play, but he wanted to make his own to better get into character. I thought, might get more powerful than the others but fuckit. Won't matter much.
He wasn't. 4 hp on lvl 2. I had a few opponents who wouldn't outright kill him on a hit and it was a dungeon crawl with a few RP oppertunities buildt into it.
His character verbally abuses the other characters, is a sneaky bastard and steals anything he can get his hands on; And when we're done I find out that he thought he was RP'ing CG. He was bossing the other new players around, doing retarded shit. He did anything he could to be viewed as an unlikable douche.
I don't think he'll get an invite to come back.

My THAT GUY happens to be both my best friend and the best roleplayer in my gaming group. Sometimes he'll make a great character that I will enjoy running campaigns with, however, more often than not, his character kills my love for a game and makes me can a campaign that I started.

Our list includes, but is not limited to:
1. A two-headed quadrupedal fish girl that does not have any concept of civility.
2. A diaper-wearing Changeling with no less than seven different syndromes, the character's name and talents are ripped directly off of Hester, a girl originating from the film The Orphan.
3. A hulking soul-eating monstergirl that was the princess of a destroyed kingdom of light that apparently has some group of reality-warping villains chasing after her.
4. A depressed, drug-addicted circus performer. The ONE time I thought this guy would make the right character, since we were playing Exalted, he does something COMPLETELY FUCKING DIFFERENT.
5. A warforged (but-not-a-warforged) that was created by a woman that ruled over her own demiplane. She wields hedge clippers in combat and has three souls that control her body. This is a character that he decided would be suitable in a backwards-ass, grimdark world.
6. A monstergirl character that has apparently already dreamed everything that could ever be dreamed in a period of somewhere around two decades. She is antisocial and has a laundry list of abilities when I told the players that most abilities they would use would be made up "on the fly."

Couldn't play without the guy, but god damn, THOSE CHARACTERS.

I've had two groups where everyone wanted to be the little girl. In the first it was okay, because it was a magical girl parody game.
In the second it was not. I don't mind one or two players being young adults, Kids going through puberty and coming of age. That's traditional for a fantasy story. But what I do mind is every single player being a child. And an incredibly skilled little girl at that.

There's nothing that makes me facepalm more than having a munchkin play a 14 year old girl that's a skilled Mage. Except when everyone else is doing the same, and the ST's Mary Sue is also a 13 year old Mage with four dots of Adamantine Hand in two or three Arcana. And is the Heirarch's daughter, and the executioner.
Oh, and using bows and katanas in broad daylight in a big city. In a library, at that.
And when the little girl let herself get bitten by a "loli vampire" and moaned sexually.

People who call me the THAT GUY in my groups has never seen my other groups.

Children being stronger than adults, and weapons used in broad daylight--archaic ones at that. My two biggest pet peeves.

It was a low-level group and I wanted to let them fuck over the world without meaning to.
They were hired by a noble to get a sweet gem from some goblins who had stolen it from a caravan. After they had done so the dude checked out the gem for a little while and then hired them to deliver it to the King as a surprise present. They were to hide it under the king's pillow so that he found it when he went to bed.

The gem was a recepticle for a Magic Jar spell and the king was imprisoned in the gem. The necromancer who had hired them took control over the kings body and made the country hell on earth during a few weeks of strange military actions and tactical decisions made to allow unspeakable evils into the capitol.

I may do a lot of shit that /tg/ calls creepy, but here's the thing.
All those times my characters get raped? All those times they have sex, and shit like that?
That's basically me cybering with the ST. That's not in the middle of play. I've never raped another player.

I keep my fetishes where they belong, and when something does cross over--Lace recently got raped by some dykes--then it's just the repercussions that the other players deal with, not the actions.
Then again, Lace wasn't raped so I could get off. That happened for the sweet, sweet taste of Hate Crime Milestone Vitriol. Not much is sexy about a teenage girl's steel toed boot breaking your little pansy jaw for daring to be slightly homosexual in the deep south of Louisiana.

My party's THAT GUY was named Paul. He's an alumni of our college who looks like Alan Moore, walks like he has a peg leg, and talks like Porky Pig. He played what might be the worst Dragonborn Warlord ever. Always needed to smash things in the face and moonlight as the tank when he freaking sucked at it. Also, he tried to sleep with everything while playing his character like an avenging angel. He assumed the party leader role until eventually we just started circumventing his dumb plans. I also had to grit my teeth and save his character from death in the middle of a public arena which resulted in my character's near-death based on a backstory of being a wanted criminal in that nation.

The game died last year, but we're starting another specifically avoiding the gaming club which he got involved through last time.

Mmmmmnooope. I don't play female characters because I don't feel I could play them accurately, I'd either fall onto stereotypes or make them a man in all but biology.

Anyway, to be totally serious. The problem was with you, not the group. I've spent time with the group, they're all fine.

In this thread alone you've gone on about your fetishes and their involvement in your gaming, no matter how discreet you make it that's a red light to me. On top of which you spanked your cat until it was sexually exicted then told the internet about it.

It's bad enough doing something pretty shady to begin with but TELLING PEOPLE about it is where the whole thing makes people distrust your judgement if not your character. At best you're dense and at worst you're creepy.

Because you willingly told us in this thread about your rape play, I'm leaning towards creepy.

You misunderstand me.
We all split up for things, because the game runs whenever there are players present.

So while Joan and Barlowe go do INVESTIGATIVE things, Lace goes on his date with his girlfriend. Afterwards, Lace got hate crimed when he tried to make friends with two dykes who took offense to him wearing a skirt.
They threatened him, broke his face up, made him do a striptease, and one of them had sex with him. Then they stuck a pipe in his ass and peed on him, writing obscenities and slurs with a sharpie.
At no point was any other player present for this. This all took place in PM. The only thing that the other characters know is that Lace got raped by some bitches, had his face kicked in, and is walking funny. Oh, and they tied him to a toilet, so Lace was missing for a day.
Also they flushed his bowling tickets down the toilet, the fucking dykes.

Now, despite what /tg/ might think, none of that got me off. Now the repercussions come into play. Lace is going to be a little more clingy, and afraid, and he's going to want to stick close to Joan and Barlowe. He doesn't know what Natalie will think, and is going to hide it. He was worried that Kathleen would be upset, because she says not to have sex with anyone but the person you love.

The thing is, none of the other players mind that this stuff happens, because I don't drag them into it. That's the thing about it.
When you're THAT GUY it's not WHAT you do (in most cases, because seriously monstergirls and furries and shit puts you close to THAT GUY), it's HOW you do it. If you aren't making the other players uncomfortable, you're not THAT GUY.

Oh yeah! That guy, the guy who decided to play a female from a race that had no genders. I told him multiple times that the race in question (stone-skinned mountain dwelling giants) had no genders, and that a 'female' looked just like a male. He didn't get it, and when he did, he played him like a stereotypical gay man to seem more 'ladylike'. Dragging around a poof was starting to bring down the rest of the group, a ghoul scout, a human knight (me) and an elf bard, but I thought it was funny. Until he started to flirt with me. At first it was a lol, but it started to get very weird, very fast, culminating in him trying to have sex with me in a back alley. We had to kill him (he was rolling very well, and was sparing no detail as he tore off my armour) and 'that guy' ragequitted. The ghoul's player (the group's only female) never let me forget it.

>If this is another internet group I think I've played with this guy as well, he too is great assuming they are who I think they might be.
Probably not. But he's a good roleplayer, despite all his faults. Once kept hugging on an NPC even after she started freaking out and telling him to get the fuck off her. I even threw up my hands and had her start crying and he kept going.
Autistic as hell, but he can get into character real good. Has trouble picking out what's actually going on, though. Skips whole lines of text, but then again I'll admit I've done the same.

You realize that was a joke, right? And it's something that animal people do to keep a cat happy. They even sell paddles for it. Look it up on Youtube.

I have a guy who makes the same character over and over again
A BADASS ANTISOCIAL LONER WHO HAS NO MORALS BECAUSE HE'S SO LOL-LOOK-HOW-EDGY-AND-GRITTY-I-AM. This isn't so bad, as I can deal with the same shit character, but then he also likes to this... this thing. It's so incredibly annoying, and kinda hard to describe. You see, he has this disgusting face with a massive mouth and nostrils. He always makes these noises, such as
>SHAK SHAK SHAK SHAK
when he's going to stab something, and it's not the noises that are so bad, it's mainly how he either blows air on me, or spit goes everywhere.
Not only this, but he constantly puts people down. When our bro got a black belt, nothing. Not a word of praise. He told him that he could buy one of those belts on ebay, and that our bro had just wasted much of his life.
He also likes to 'troll' our group. He tells the guy that goes to church how awesome atheism is, he tells the girls to goback2kitchen, and won't stop going on about how dumb morals are and how anarchy is the way to live.
He also power games, outright argues with the DM over fucking item prices, outright argues with the DM about trap detection DCs, and outright argues with the DM over anything that doesn't go his way. He steals from the group constantly, uses out of character knowledge, and always makes these broken as hell characters that are hard to kill/get rid of.
The worst part though? The thing I hate the most. He knows that he is doing this shit. He fucking knows. So every time people get unified to do something about it, it's like he can sense it. He starts to act all pathetic and lonely and shit, so people feel sorry for him. I'm glad we got to subtract his ass from our group.

Edward, you're fagging up the place. Of course, that's how you get off, such is the nature of trolling, but let me tell you a THAT GUY story to answer the quoted question.

So I ST old World of Darkness games, and I'm rather partial to Mage, although anything aside from some of the niche games are fine (hell, I've been tempted to try Gypsies). At the time there were two players, and we were looking to add more. One of these players is possibly the gayest man I know (and I live in San Francisco) whose every single character had to have some connection to the Fae or fairies and was already pretty That Guy-ish, but within tolerable levels. The other was my girlfriend, who I hardly feel unbiased enough to comment on save that she always likes to play the generic "headstrong female" types, does a pretty good job of it, and can't ST her way out of a hat.

We found two new players. The first was so weeaboo, he was actually Asian. Every single character was an anime reference, but my AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT MIND was either able to ignore the reference entirely, or make it alright. For example, he wanted to play the Black Mage from Final Fantasy in a Mage game, so I made up some backstory about him forming a pact with a demon, the demon eating his face in exchange for power, and him having to hide the shadowy remnants of his countenance under large hats or hoodies lest he get paradox if people find out.

>> No.12420772

>>12420760
Now the second, Edward, is the person I'd like to interest you in. Our first game together was Mage, but his only WoD experience up until that point was with Werewolf; it showed, as he constantly played generic faceless hit-punchy characters, ranging from an army brat to a bland assassin to probably the most comically inept Abyssal in Exalted I've ever seen. I was alright for this, the other players needed a tank/comic relief/idiocy magnet, and he did that to a T. But the character for the purposes of our little story came about when he had the brilliant idea to try something different.

First off, this character was female. That was fine, I said, I've never been in the business of turning down characters based on gender or backstory. But wait, he claimed, there's more. She was also the victim of a rape, perpetrated while she was working for the Technocracy. Again, I decided to give it a go, wondering how he'd play this differently.

To put it bluntly, he hated men. All men. He had constant traumatic experiences, he would fly off the handle if any NPC or PC would make a lewd remark, and ended up being on the run from the law after crushing a cop's skull when his eyes inadvertently flickered to his character's large rack. And yes, he did specify that they were D cups.

Now why was this bad? The whole game ended up being about HIS bullshit. The other players were, with possible exception of the weeabasian, better roleplayers, but his constant freaking the fuck out and killing/maiming folks made the entire game about players trying to solve his shit.

Basically, Edward, you take an exercise that is meant for the enjoyment of all and turn it into a personal passion play for you at best, or a horrible masturbation fantasy at worst. You are THAT GUY. In your heart of hearts, you know it.

Now deal with it.

Except I'm nothing like that guy. Even if my characters have been raped--which happens... nowhere near as much as /tg/ thinks--I've never made a game about me. The most I've done to make a game 'about me' is drive the plot forward when other players are dragging their feet and not sure about what to do.

I've never personally experienced the sort of situation where two players get "intimate" for lack of a better word through the game. That is to say, no intimate character interaction or players getting intimate over character interaction.

And I'm sure some of you might have seen or experienced situations where it all works out okay, where a guy and a girl or any same sex pairing you like come to some mutal understanding that is also tasteful. Good for you.

But I frankly would prefer to avoid romantic involvement in a game entirely, unless I was extremely confident it wouldn't get weird and even then I wouldn't want to give or hear explicit details. I neither want to experience nor witness some creepy one sided crush or a pair of neckbeards getting worked up as their perfect lesbian avatars get kinky.

I don't have a problem with lesbians, I have a problem with taking up game time with creepy embaressing shit and secretly am afraid I might say that then end up a hypocrite.

I once ran a campaign where the minotaurs were invading the lands of the free peoples. Think of it like LOTR, but minotaurs instead of orcs. We'd just gotten a new sourcebook which had a bunch of different races in it, and everyone was eager to try it out. I said fine, but no one can be a minotaur. And it makes sense: if an orc in LOTR had marched through the gates of Minas Tirith, he'd have been shot, no questions asked. So it would be ridiculous to have a minotaur in the party, even if he was LG or whatever.

Players show up for the game, and I look over their character sheets. THAT GUY has a minotaur. No, I tell him, you're going to have to change it. We argue for five minutes, and finally he agrees, poring over the sourcebook again. I figure he's just going to munchkin it up with some weird race I've never heard of, but whatever, I'll fit it in.

Game starts. The half-elf and the dwarf are walking down the trail, doing some roleplaying, when they see a shadow in the trees. I ask THAT GUY to describe his character.

It's a fucking minotaur. I facepalm. The half-elf draws his bow, nocks an arrow.... Two round later there is a dead minotaur (and a ten silver bounty to be collected).

THAT GUY is pissed, but I say that's totally fair. I warned him, after all. So the rest of the party meets while he rolls up a new guy. New guy emerges from the trees.

It's a fucking minotaur.

THAT GUY for me was black. I don't say that as an "Oh, BLACK people, amirite?" kinda way, cause that's stupid, just... black guy roleplaying is rare, is all.

Anyway, he was a fucking tool. It was a Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0 game, he was one of three solos (the other two were really nice, and one played it SO DAMN WELL I cannot even describe it to you, and this thread isn't about good players) and not a combat round went by when he didn't whine about SOMETHING, dragging the whole game down. It got to the point where I was singing "Onward, Christian Soldiers" very loudly just to have something to do.

One session his Solo had just beheaded a Nomad, and was using some rule to justify cutting it off REALLY quickly. He'd done it, he just wanted that extra millisecond, even though the rules didn't really say that he could. It got to the point where the GM was asking him if he wanted to play any more, and THAT GUY was just ignoring him and bitching.

Eventually we changed to a different game (http://www.midcoast.com/~ricekrwc/zefrs/) and a different GM. We begged the new guy not to let THAT GUY in, but apparently he was really contrite or something. He showed up one session, and didn't show up for a while. One time he did show up, we were playing Red Dragon Inn (GM was away) and he didn't join in or talk to us, he just sat there. He showed up one more time, but everyone ignored him and he went home.

Why'd we put up with him for so long? Put simply, he was a master of being Passive-Aggressive. I only wish I'd been able to tell him what I thought of him, but the only time I've seen him was at a fa/tg/uy con, and I just ignored him.

I don't think he understood why.

New player a cleric comes to play because the DM asked him, he has a horse, he described it and named it etc doing pretty decent job. Because of the plot his horse gets eaten by displace beasts.

So he goes “Alright I’ll just have to buy a new horse so that we could move on.”

The party goes to the local place to do that and has a talk with the appropriate merchant who will get the horse next day they pay him the price in advance and come back for the horse next day.

During the night THAT GUY rogue sneaks out, finds the guy who is bringing the new horse, kills him takes the party’s money steals the horse and sells it to the first guy he meets on the street for a few pennies.

Next day

Party looks for the guy and the new horse, Rogue come too the guy is nowhere to be seen.

Hm. Seeing a lot of deleted posts from some Edward person in this thread.

But, if he's going to sling the first mud, well, turnabout is fair play. And hearing the other side of the story might be interesting.

I'm doing that now, actually.

anyway, hm. where to start? I mean, Ed really did start out as a decent person, in my group. Which was the one which began around magical girl roleplaying. I'm not sure exactly how he ended up doing things which got everyone else involved to hate him ,but he managed it over a period of several months. We're talking people going from a group where everyone's cool with the guy, to maybe one person dislikes or antagonizes him (which would be me, I'll be honest), to a slow loss of every ally he had. Seriously. He had people who were originally defending and agreeing with him to the point they hated him more than the person they were defending him from.

Maybe I should split things into little case studies and go from there. I've got several, and probably won't post them in chronological order. So far as I can remember, I'll list the major incidents.

Ed being fairly normal in a wierd magical girl game with a first-time GM. ED GMing his own game everyone likes, Ed bitching and nagging GMs into a loss of the will to run their games. Ed insisting his view and approach is the only correct one (you know this from any WoD thread he posts in, though), Ed proves he's a bit of a creepy internet stalker type, and lastly, where Ed goes more or less batshit and throws a group into endless shitstorms until forcibly removed.

My first session of D&D ever, I had to play a level 7 fighter who was apparently left in front of the local leader of a town, about to confess his crimes. My awesome group allowed me to know this, fuck you all.

First thing I asked, "How close am I to the king/whatever?" DM looked at me, nonchalantly and said, maybe 5-6feet. I don't think this group had been around too much violence...

I immediately rolled 20 initiative and stabbed the king. Then I fought off 2 guards and killed the halfling cleric pc who turned me in, before jumping out the window. The group, especially the cleric looked at me like WTF, the others started laughing though.

"Is there a blacksmith or something near by?" "Uh yea you passed one in the way to town" I immediately ran into the woods and back to the BS while people and guards freaked out at my previous locale. Then I stole some armor, and a cool new sword.

This followed up with me killing a few more of my pc friends when they tried to catch me.

Sounds corny now but it was GLORIOUS for my first game.

Ok. We'll start with Edward coming off as an internet-stalker, or at least a really weird creep.

This one's easier to see in hindsight, really. Anyway, when the group started, we had a girl playing with us. Since this game is online on IRC, we only know this because she said as much. Now at some point, she and Ed have an altercation over PM, and she says she's a horrible person. Ed decides to play the white night and send her an e-mail saying she's a good person and all that sort of stuff. She replies to say that it cheered her up a bit. Now, here's where it gets kinda weird. He decides to make this a daily thing, and starts sending her daily self-affirmation mails, or something. I forget when we first heard of this, but I think nobody thought much of it. In hindsight, though, it's pretty weird.

So, the next step of Edward's misadventures in love is, naturally, on Valentine's day. When the majority of the group plays FATAL. Interestingly, it was the girl's suggestion. I am That guy for the time-being as I decide to sit it out, and be a very angry, huffy prude and call everyone out for being completely debauched perverts. Pretty dick of me, bit I really don't need my image of everyone shattered by statements of sexual antics involving everyone else. ...And using the names I know the players by, and not the characters they were playing, no less.

Anyway, sometime after that, Ed confesses his love for the girl. Of course, she'd told us quite recently how a similar situation involving online love happened, and ended poorly. Ed is at least smart enough to immediately apologize. The girl disappears off the face of the internet a short time later.

Continuing.

At some point, Ed admits that maybe he's the reason one of our players disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Because he confessed his love to her, etc etc. He goes on to explain that to him ,there's multiple kinds of love, and this love was the love between mentor and student, or some other appreciation, and not of a romantic sort. Didn't stop him from subtly playing favorites in games.

during the ensuing, and fairly heated, discussion, Ed lets drop that he continued those daily emails after she'd disappeared. Which was months ago. This sets off a red flag, as it's just...kind of creepy. We took some effort to convince him that if she did leave because of him, what he was doing is probably some sort of harassment, and he really should stop.

As it later turned out, the girl involved in this just quit the group in a fit of depression or the like. She'd even warned us a few times that she tended not to stick with a single group too long for such reasons.

Ok, there's that one. It's about as objective as possible to tell it, and maybe isn't that bad of things, though it's definitely some darn strange behavior. I do recall Ed was posting advice on /tg/ about why it's cool to be friend zone'd which was also downright creepy, and refused to believe such until told by someone who had the authority of being female. You know, the whole, "if you're her friend, you can slowly make her love you" sort of thing that tends not to even sound very romantic.

To be fair, they weren't REALLY playing FATAL. They were just doing raunchy freeform with a GM providing some plot and a few requests for rolls. Said GM was a volunteer from /tg/. They did roll characters using the FATAL character generation program.

I highly suspect that this is, however, about as close as possible anyone is likely to get to the true FATAL experience, as nobody can understand that goddamn ruleset well enough to actually GM it.

I honestly do feel kind of bad for begin a complete ass and raining on their parade, so to speak, but goddamn, some stuff just rubs me the wrong way.

As for Ed sparking a hate-spiral that ended with him getting booted form our group...I really can't say as much about it as anyone would like. Not off the top of my head, anyway. I think that I've forgotten the details is actually merciful.

A very short account was that it tended to involve him, as often as possible, bringing up topics we though we'd yelled at one-another about and moved on, and started a whole fresh yelling-match. Also, a lot of harassing everyone with "Why do you hate me?" Of course, when told, he'd tend to defend himself by flatly denying any wrongdoing and basically pointing the blame at the person he asked. Let me tell you, when you see a guy as at least partially responsible for some bad blood, but he keeps saying it ain't him and you're totally and completely to blame, it starts to REALLY piss you off. Especially when you admit wrongdoing and apologize, and the other party absolutely refuses to, which in my opinion is downright insulting, after a while.

So, as all this is going on, Edward also somehow gets everyone who used to like him to hate him as well. I don't really know the details, because they're mostly in PMs. It got to the point where the guy who was friendliest with Ed hated him more than I did.

I do know that it ended without a ban. Edward is deathly afraid of being banned from a chat, so if you threaten one, he logs off ASAP so you can't catch him. He was told, in no uncertain terms, that he seemed to be the root cause of the eternal shitstorms plaguing the channel and preventing civil conversation from happening, much less any games. He was also told to leave, and never return, on pain of being banned.

Well ,eventually, he gets banned. See, he shows up in another channel, by coincidence, and sees some of us there. He immediately starts up the same old routine. "Why do you hate me?" And so-on. He got booted from that channel. ...only to do the dumbest thing possible, which was to come back to the original channel ,where he was told he'd get his ass banned if we could see it. He hung around long enough to get banned. 'nuff said there.

...Of course, he also sent emails to most of us, in which he also continued his "why do you hate me?" and "it ain't me, it's you" stuff. Guy just HAD to have the last word.

It was night time and we set up camp in a forest as we were still traveling to the location that our quest takes place in. My character makes a snide comment about how the dwarf isn't intelligent enough to make fire for the camp

You know what he fucking did? He tried to rape my character. He asked the DM if it was ok and he was like "god damn it.........fuck."

No, but back when you could set things on fire in WH40K it was common for a Tyranid player to set a Carnifex on fire before it went into melee because it had a chance of burning the enemy. A commom tactic of That Guy from back in the day, and such a horrendus abuse of the rules that it prompted a nerf on the species that present day Carnifexi are still feeling, being lackluster point-for-point compared to the other faction's equivilents.

The one and only time I took my Grey Knights to my FLGS I was fighting That Guy, who insisted that I use all of the outdated codex rules, except for the ones that benefited me. No Machine Spirit on the land Raider, no Rending on the Assault Cannons, no ranged protection with Storm Shields, but the GKGM's Nemesis Force Weapon still followed the recent 'Eternal Warriors are immune to Instant Death including Force Weapons' rules.

Then I stuck wheels, treads, and a motor on the Land Raider and gave it to my nephew for his grade five science project in which everyone in class had to make a motorized something. Most of them put a frame and wheels on their pencil boxes with K-nex. I heard shit was rather cash for him as they had to pull stuff, go over obsticles, up inclines, etc

Player wise the most THAT GUY I've had to play with was one guy that ended up joining our group after we had a few campaigns down already.. And than immediately tried to become the leader and ignore all established character development. It was essentially, random dude walks in and than starts shouting orders at you. His backstory involved telling off and shutting down other player characters (without any of their knowledge), and his stats were all impossibly high rolls - think nat 18-20's on everything.

GM wise, had a GM that literally the first three sessions of a game were us RPing walking down different corridors. Seriously, we would be presented with a hallway and told to walk down in, nothing else. If we tried to ever break from the railroad or do something unexpected one of three things would happen - he would tell us blatantly "No." and just ignore it magically, troopers would suddenly step in and start threatening us.. Or anti-tank weaponry would drop from the ceiling and take aim on us until we agree to follow the predetermined GM path.

Played a game with a guy named Piggy in college (he also wore a pig hat in a sort of failed ironic look)

Our DM decided for fun to have us fight a guy that polymorphes people. Piggy got polymorphed and insisted he be polymorphed into a pig. DM relents, and Piggy is turned into a pig. The instant this happens Piggy starts to squeal as loud as he can, as fast as he can irl. We tried to calm him down but he paused long enough to say we had to stop him in game.

Here's a creepy story of a that guy.

At our college club we had a few nonstudent club members come by. One of them was an older guy with a bad haircut, bags under his eyes, BO, and a distinctive red jacket. I saw him a few times but never played with him. My friend however did. He played in a game with this creepy guy and a transfer girl. According to him the creepy guy would be overprotective of the girl's character, and when she asked questions he would lean up close to her to answer questions. Anyways he was always getting into her personal space and in character followed her all over.

Now my experience with this guy was when I was working in the college bookstore and the person I worked with was a young attractive woman. He came in. I didn't really pay attention until the woman came up to me and said 'Do you mind if I stay here until that guy leaves? He tried to follow me into the back room' Alerted to this guy now I kept my eye on him. He would pace back and forth pretending to look at merchandise but he would also glance up at the register. He got less then 5 bucks worth of stuff and left.

He would occasionally come back, look around and leave.

You should have counter-trolled by bringing up the fact that there's no way in fuck a ninja would have been carrying a katana.

our that guy is my friend matt. Last year's fall semester started with my friend running D&D fourth Edition, i was fine with it, Matt rolled up a "doppelganger temptress" and listed his diety as "Queen Dopple-Poppulus" in a reference to Sea Lab 2020. I instantly frowned. Needless to say, my Goliath, and everyone else's character was hit one, and every NPC was hit on as well.

Next game i played with him in was a CoC mini campaign. He rolled up "Haley Comet" a secretary/astronomer/detective who was 17 years old. She also was described as "blonde and big tits". She proceeded to be so fucking annoying that at some point my character, the only one with a gun, shot her. She didn't die, but was knocked unconscious, which had everyone let out a relieved sigh. She lost her mind and the DM didn't allow him to ever make another character again.

He also played in my Dark Heresy campaign. Every time we were going to play, he would invited all his magic playing friends who weren't in the campaign and were only into fucking with my group when we played. He also rolled "his first ever male character" who was a imperial worlder adept, who he made into a total bro who lipped off to everyone. I targetted him relentlessly the whole time the campaign was working.

He's not invited back to anyone's games in my gaming circle anymore.

I like this concept, but not his execution.

Making real life or death choices part of every campaign spices it up so much. There was one campaign with a "nice guy" DM who's dungeons only had minor traps, monsters were always easy-balanced and he always let players out of bad decisions. It basically made us feel immortal, which made the game boring as fuck.

I once played with a guy who went through three different shitty characters in quick succession. One was a Bothan, one was a Wookiee, and one was a Gungan. The dipshit actually tried to use one of those characters, don't remember which, to take out the Coruscant Jedi Temple, alone, without the Force.
Had this infuriating tendency to already be in places - like, he'd play someone infiltrating our facilities, but he'd start his character inside the place he was infiltrating, near whatever his target was.

His Gungan character when captured pulled a 'booma' out of thin air and swallowed it to commit suicide. Shenanigans happened.

My gamin' group doesn't have a THAT GUY, but my DM sort-of became THAT GUY when we played Monopoly with a friend we hadn't seen for 2 years who moved back to town. During setup he states, "We had a tradition in my house of cheating, but it wasn't really much of a tradition since it was just me." Okay, red light, but how can he cheat, he's not even banker? Game starts and he knows the price of houses and hotels for every property, by memory. This is going to be one of those things, isn't it? Yep. He's buying everything he lands on. Second time around the board he lands on my square when I'm not looking and passes his turn, since I guess I can't charge him when it's no longer his turn. The game went on and he started monopolizing the board, hoteling up and such, making a lot of money.

Anyway everyone else started cutting me retardedly good deals. I got Boardwalk and sold it for its asking price, plus one of the lowest level properties to someone else. DM just raged and raged. I think part of it was because they were girls and he's kind of inept around women.

Well, all of my characters have as one of their main motivations "be competent in a wide variety of situations, and be really good at your job". So long as my character has no IC reason NOT to, he does what makes him effective.

Our THAT GUY was new to the group, and new to an ongoing campaign (DND3.5). He didn't really know what he wanted to play, so I helped him whip up something... a Curst Fighter. Effectively immortal character, but it can still drop in battle, so it's not as broken as it sounds.

Anyway, before meeting the party, he first meets up with BBEG. BBEG obviously outclasses him, but doesn't want to fight, he wants THAT GUY to do him a favor, and take some explosives in to the city. BBEG talks about how the people in the city are bad, and how they opress all his BBEMinions, and shit.

Despite being MUSTACHE TWIRLINGLY EVIL, THAT GUY buys BBEGs crap hook line in sinker. No 'bluff check' or 'sense motive'... THAT GUY just DECIDED he was on board for some terrorism. (keep in mind he already knew full well the rest of the party was in the city, and this was their enemy.)

So, he goes in to the city, and the bomb he was carrying blows up. BBEG set a secret timer on it, because he's EVIL. But, THAT GUY doesn't die, he just regenerates really slow. So he gets picked up by the town guard, and arrested when they figure out he was responsible for the kaboom.

Enter the rest of the party, and the BGGG (Big Great Good Guy) of the city. BGGG isn't mad, just wants to know what happens, yadda yadda, softball way for this guy to say he was tricked and join the party for some revenge on Mustache Twirling, Betraying, Minion Enslaving and Beating BBEG.

After arguing my head in to the table about this for around twenty minutes, and giving him every conceivable way to talk his way to freedom, THAT GUY was still bound in chains, and no one in their right mind would trust this guy out on his own.

"Well... if I let you go... will you at least promise not to do it (commit a terrorist act that kills innocent civilians) again?" says BGGG.

It ALWAYS ends in a rage and trolling fest. ALWAYS. At least 2/3rds of the time the campaign is derailed into "Me vs. the rest of the party".

Apparently it's unfair for your player-controlled BBEG to set up a mining operation to earn money to hire kobolds to set traps around town to delay the players while I go dungeoncrawl for macguffins, because I gain exponential advantages as my power level increases (I gain level -> I can get more powerful minions or collect gold from more dangerous and thus more profitable locations).

Lots of people do have a hate on optimised characters, or players who influence the plot/progress of the campaign.
The proper response to both of these is some combination of "haters gonna hate", "u jelly?", and "lolumad".
Reason? Their hate can't be stopped by your actions one way or another, unless you deliberately make yourself bad at things - at which point you're being emotionally blackmailed into being a weakling. It's bullying and it's BS, so ignore it.

Of course people get angry when you have more power than they do, but the solution to this isn't for you to have less power - the solution is for other people to just fucking deal with not being as good as they want to be. Escalating an IC matter of weakness to OOC because umad is immature and petty.

Acting righteous, or morally right, for enforcing equality is bs. It's making excuses to justify your hatred and anger for being weak, without acknowledging that you (and your weakness) are the problems, not other people.
It's not "playing the right way", it's not "doing right by other players", it's not "playing properly", "being social", "respecting etiquette", or "not being a douche". It is, in fact, you with your IC doing better than other people with their IC, them getting jealous and resentful, and them lashing out because of it.

Mechanically competent is not the same as 'built to be perfect.' When a character outpaces everyone by a wide margin, and the player says 'Boo hoo, fuck you,' He's a bad player.

Unless you can explain the others being INcompetent as explicitly their fault, there is no reason you should be that far above them simply by being 'competent.'

Furthermore, if you escalate any IC issue to OOC, to cover up your own emotional weaknesses, you have no right to complain when I then escalate the OOC issue to real life and kick you out of the game group.

As a result of these flaws in the personality of people who hate min-maxing, I feel no need to change MY fun or bend MY playstyle to suit theirs, and neither should you.
I don't respect the emotions of someone who lashes out and drops rocks, or who demands I change my playstyle to suit them, when the real issue is that they just can't deal with how much they suck at D&D.

So yes, I'm being disrespectful and acting against your fun, but you deserve it. Haters gonna hate, and I will minmax.

All players are supposed to have influence on the campaign. If you monopolize that by knowing the rules better than everyone else and making the perfect 'build,' you are indeed that guy.

>Unless you can explain the others being INcompetent as explicitly their fault, there is no reason you should be that far above them simply by being 'competent.'
Actually, a firm grasp of the rule and properly building your character has a MUCH higher than linear rate of returns. Similarly, being a dumbass and building haphazardly can lead to you being a complete and utter gimp.
Simply being competent when the players around you play haphazardly makes you absurdly powerful compared to them.

I don't play Barbs for that reason - being mechanically competent with them isn't much different to just being average. Contrast Clerics, Druids, Wizards, Sorcerors, and even Rangers and Bards. To say nothing of Psionics.

D&D is a damn complex game, and if you play it well, you pull WAY ahead of those around you.

Yeah, and I could have taken the additional necromancer variant that gave my raised dead a +4 strength and +4 dex, on top of the +2 Str they gotfrom corpse crafter.

I didn't, though, because I realized that having 12 skeletons with 24 strength and 20 dex would probably unbalance the game in my favor.

You having fun is your own problem, not mine.
You will have fun being weak and I will have fun being strong.
If you aren't having fun, then too fucking bad, get over it and have fun.

>All players are supposed to have influence on the campaign.
Not everyone has the desire to drive the campaign.
For those that do, some have hang-ups or mental blocks, or other self-made rules that prevent them from doing any more than just whining. I ignore those because it's not MY problem if someone deliberately gimps their campaign-driving ability then whines that they can't drive the campaign.
Other players will drive the campaign in stupid directions, and pull your character with them. For these, I want power to override them for the obvious reason.
Also, other players' characters can talk to your character. You're allowed (and encouraged) to listen to your party, even if you're more powerful than they are.
Campaign-moving is also a valuable reward and motivation of being good - you are better at the game, you get more ability to control it.
Finally, I like controlling campaigns, probably more than the other players. I really like it, while the other players are just mildly interested. So, for the group to have the optimal amount of fun in moving the campaign, I make most of the decisions.

Not all players are supposed to have equal influence, and I am fine with that.

>But if the DM's giving you the greenlight, you HAVE to start addressing the other players in the voice of A Pimp Named Slickback.
Um, why?
I don't gloat over my character's mechanical abilities or my plot control. They're just things I have that are fun to have, not a means to be better than someone else, or an excuse to demean the players at the table.

The players are not my bitches, they are players - human beings whose respect is 4th on my list of priorities, right behind "Don't do anything fucking retarded", "Keep a consistent IC", and "Be mechanically competent".

The only players I have a problem with are the ones who whine and bitch and demand DM vetos and demand rocksfalls and who act higher-than-thou or morally righteous. Aforementioned haters are gonna hate.

My personal favorite method is to create a terrain-heavy map, and have a battle with something like 40 zombies. Harmless to most skilled adventurers, the temptation to show off is just too strong for the power gamer.

Inevitably, he'll wade in and start swinging instead of using the terrain to his advantage. Surrounded, he will now be unable, in most cases, to escape. Then, start rolling. Eventually, natural 20's will happen, and suddenly he'll be getting clobbered by 'harmless' undead.

I actually had a PALADIN get hit with three 20's in a row by a zombie that physically could not harm him. I didn't make it stick, but he learned his lesson.

Then fucking DO IT. Unbalancing the game in the favor of the strongest is the entire POINT of game balance, and half the point of having a game TO balance.
Jesus christ, if I had a Diablo II zoomancer in my party the campaign would be SO much more interesting, mainly because I'd have to work with the zoomancer to do what needs to be doing and to make some type of deals of mutual benefits with him, resulting in my plot being more intertwined with that of another main character (which is GOOD, it makes for good stories).

The only downside is that your zoomancer would run into a disproportionate amount of ladders and pits, but fuck, that's what tensor's is for and I've got tensor's. I run the utility box that keeps the zombie lawnmower chewin', the zombie lawnmower chews.
I'd like that. It'd be a mechanically competent group of two people co-operating and that would be awesome.

>The reason why you hate That Guy for ruining your campaign is.. well, the same reason why they hate you for ruining theirs.
No, I hate that the campaign was ruined. I don't hate THAT GUY for doing it. Identify your emotions and don't pin blame on others.

The world revolves around whoever it revolves around. You can use your ability to influence the world's orbit, but regardless of what happens, you shall shut up and deal with it.

>Which is a common thought powergamers tend to have.
Wanting power for everyone equally is unfair to the people who want it more, or who work harder for it.
In the end, there is no absolute moral 'best' for how much campaign-driving or mechanical power a player SHOULD have. So, rather than argue from that perspective, I instead do this:
I shall play my way
And haters shall hate.

>which brings us back to 'don't be surprised if they tell you to fuck off.' When you routinely make games not fun, they'll likely stop playing with you.

There are two opinions I could have here.
If bad stuff deliberately targets the minmaxers then lolnope.jpg, I ain't playin' there.
If chaotic stuff happens to everyone equally, I'm honestly interested at how I can be competent and optimised for chaos, and adapt to the changing conditions. It'd be kind of interesting.
Most likely it'd be "stall with diplomacy until random chance gives you the opportunity to kill everyone" before the other players can do so first!

>My personal favorite method is to create a terrain-heavy map, and have a battle with something like 40 zombies. Harmless to most skilled adventurers, the temptation to show off is just too strong for the power gamer.
A power gamer who deliberately gets himself surrounded by something that kills you when it surrounds you, when he quite clearly has a way to not get surrounded, is a retard (or roleplaying a WIS6 character).

>Skeleton guy here. If I wanted play a solo game, I'd just go play a solo game. I'm playing with a group because I want to PLAY with a GROUP.
Being powerful and plot controlling doesn't mean solo. Mostly because there are other players. I like group-play mostly for the social aspect, but it's nice when you get some involved teamwork or involved competition - something that tests your brainmeats and your ability to adapt.

>Always getting your way is just as boring as never getting it.
I disagree, mostly because 'my way' leads to fun times and adventure. ;)

>If I don't need or want a party, why did I even bother joining one?
Maybe you wanted their company?

>I bet you use a lot of you lolPlotControl powers to prevent anyone from going on sidequests to gain abnormalities and power to put them on a level with you. Because you can.
Heh. If I have an IC reason to suspect they're planning to kill me then I'll do that, otherwise no - I'll just whore the EXP like a mad boss as always.

Solution: buy a ball. Or, if you have no money, perhaps you can convince someone who doesn't know you to give a ball. Or you might steal a ball. Perhaps you can earn a ball somehow?
Jesus christ, the respect and admiration of your 'peers' isn't everything - 80% of the time, it conflicts with other more important stuff, for 50% of the rest you just lie, and for the 10% overall remaining you just suck it up and deal with it.
