That Guy Thread? That Guy Thread.

Our That Guy's list of annoyances:

1. Constantly talking over DM
2. Constantly breaking mood DM is trying to set
3. Loses interest when it's not his turn
4. Often texts during the time he's not talking but needs to be listening or even when it's his turn
5. Can't keep track of how his character should act, for instance he willingly approaches vampire spawn and asks if they're ok without a hint of fear but when faced with a dragon-wrought kobold his character refuses to fight and just watches
6. Can't take IC criticism of his character's actions and must always argue as if he's out of character instead of coming up with decent in-game defences or rebuttals
7. Can't tell the difference between IC and OOC as he's never paying attention, the more serious role player of our group's character got frustrated and started shouting at him, he then started asking why he was being shouted at and that he hadn't spoken over the DM for a while now
8. Never listens to other characters when they ask him not to do something
9. Asked me to make my character not made at his so he could keep doing what was pissing my character off

>> No.14304534

10. Is now trying to coax my character into killing his by doing exactly what he's been told not to do and generally being a shit because he "doesn't like his character"
11. Plays a halfling rogue with next to no rogue like skills, the druid of the campaign is more effective in most areas of being a rogue as a result of his old job of being a conman
12. Tried to rape an NPC who was their friend because, chaotic lulz
13. Then proceeded to murder the fuck out of her when she refused to have sex with him and went into great detail as to how exactly he cut her up (she was tied up at the time)

But the worst part is that he's always complaining about how bored he is and always gets tired and wants to go to sleep as soon as we start making progress.

Tell me /tg/, is my group wrong? Are his actions not as frustrating as we think they are?

Pic related, it was my reaction to him asking me to completely change my character's mentality so he could keep being a useless shit

He's that guy.

My that guy has drawn the ire of every single player in the game, both out of character and in character. And to this day, he thinks that it's because every one of them is jealous about his freeforming skills, which amounts to cribbing descriptions from Seanbaby's MMA articles and justifying that he 'knows karate' when he does unreasonable things in combat.

Goliath Barbarian doesn't like people interrupting his kills or fights, this might seem dickish but it's partially due to the mental complex of never being good enough and keeping score of kills and heals, etc. and also that the interruptions could be better spent elsewhere, like taking out the guy shooting at the Goliath with a rifle only forty feet away.

Whew, no. No that isn't my THAT GUY. My THAT GUY is playing a speshul snowflake sociopathic Elven Ranger who tries to take his Animal Companion (a laughing hyena) everywhere. EVERYWHERE. The last time I game with him he tried to take the thing into a bar. When the barkeep kindly asked him to leave his animal outside, the Ranger flipped his shit and tried to intimidate the barkeep. Of course, his pitiful ass failed. He brooded in a corner until he got bored that no one was paying attention to him.

>I fucking hate that. If you want people to interact with you, then why would go fuck off in a corner and give everybody the stink eye?

Anyways, we were supposed to visit the local regent of the land in his castle. THAT GUY decides we are taking to long and sneaks...not ask us to go with him...but SNEAKS out of the bar and goes to meet the lord by himself. And of course he takes his stupid fuck off pet with him. The guards kindly ask him to leave his weapons and animal at the gate with them before he goes inside to meet this lord. Of course he has another shit fit towards the guards that are persecuting him. What does he do? His stupid ass STORMS INTO THE CASTLE FULLY ARMED. By then, the DM has had enough of his bullshit so the castle guards naturally attack the stupid fucker. If I remember correctly, his ass was lit up like a cristmas tree by about 25 guards with crossbows. Amazingly enough, he managed to run away from the castle and escaped with his life.

I gamed with a quadruplet of That Guy until I learned better.

TG1: Cheats at dice rolls, "power games" by deliberately misinterpreting various rules until he gets caught, then claims ignorance
TG2: Massive Power Gamer. Complains every single time a rule call is made against him for half an hour. Bitches, moans and manipulates until he has everything, then complains that the game is too easy.
TG3: Deliberate Power Gamer, looks up strategies online to abuse in game. May have in fact been so stupid that he made the mistakes that he claimed were mistakes, instead of outright cheating.
TG4: Mr. Opposite. Goes out of his way to make trouble for the DM and bogart the spotlight at every opportunity. Not very clever, understanding the rules of d&d was too much work, leading to much debate.

I once had several 'that guys' in a large D&D group at university.

I was DMing and due to a large RPG society at university and few people willing to take the time to DM, games typically had a strictly enforced size limit of 6 players.

I didn't see the point so my games always had 9+ players regardless of the quality of my skills.

So these three guys from the Computer Game society come to play, they've read the rules, made decent characters and aren't total dicks. Perfect players right?

Unfortunately not. When it's not their turn they are casually rolling dice and talking quietly with one another, when it is their turn they have pre-rolled all their attacks, skill checks whatever and always get high numbers.

It's 3 sessions later that another player points out they have basically been cheating by constantly rolling and re-rolling attacks and damage until they get the result they want and then when their turn comes claiming that is the 'real' result.

When confronted about this they admit it, refuse to stop doing it as 'the rules don't say I can't' and claim I'm a killer DM if I don't let them do this (note that no PC has died in this game at this point).

So as a result every. single. diceroll. they make has to be made where I can see it. If I didn't see you roll it then you roll again.

I feel like a bastard doing this but since they refuse to trustworthy I felt I had to.

This didn't quit the game though. I still have a great deal of suspicion for anyone who comes to pen and paper RPGs from computer games.

If you have nine players you should just pull out all the stops and be as lethal as possible to them. The books recommend parties of four, so having nine just means you can kill off five a session before worrying about game balance.

When he interupts the game to 'correct' a ruling the DM made. I don't care what the book says. The begnning of the book states: The rules are all optional and the DM has the final say'. If you disagree with the DM, fine, make a note of it and talk to him, privately, after the game. Express your concerns, hear his reasoning, and if he doesn't want to do it the way the book says, shut up and roll with it.

I decided to become That Guy for a game. To explain, the whole group had gotten bored with our GM's antics, he was a faggot, and I was getting pretty tired with his bullshit "haha I'm so much smarter than everyone, look you didn't word your question in exactly the right way so now demons are invading because you're an idiot".

It was Dark Heresy you see. He also had a Chaos Space Marine turn up in an FPS-style boss fight (health kits and melta guns everywhere; when he realised that nobody could use meltalguns the Chaos Marine just came in and starting shooting at the NPC officer we were meant to be guarding. It was surreal, without saying a word this Black Legion Chaos Marine walks in and without saying anything just starts shooting up the place until he falls over and dies).

It was some time after my character had been tied up and beaten by the crew for some reason that I became That Guy. I sat in the back with my laptop playing Castlevania and made no secret that I was doing so. I made no reply on my turns in combat unless someone told me it was my turn. I yawned, stopped buying snacks, and was a total douche.

Some of the other players found it funny. I know it was a pretty pathetic thing to do, but it was hella fun doing it, and DM was a massive prick. Later I stole his group and we all played an awesome DH game exploring the ruins of a lost hive.

7- Has his mutant character brainwash a bunch of human thugs into becoming Xenophobes. Rages when they turn on him.
8- (DnD2e)During a fight, I narrated how enemy blows would bounce off his armour. Insist that I take it back because then he'll have to spend gold to repair his perfect shiny armour.
9- (DnD2e) Wanted the +1Str bonus from being born in a certain province, but didn't want his character, his family or his entire city to have any blacks in it. (Yes, it was a province where the people are black)

That girl that makes a self insert for a Vampire: Dark Ages game and insists that she only feeds on clean shaved young men... in 10th century Norway...

That guy who always makes a character opposite to the agreed upon theme of the game (social character in combat oriented game, combat monster in mystery oriented game, etc.).

That other guy who thinks paladins shouldn't have anything against sacrificing babies if it's legal. They are LAWFUL good after all.

That guy who after two months of playing still doesn't remember the IRC dice bot command to roll NOR can he figure out his dice pool.

That guy who refuses to show the game master his character sheet, assumes he can do stuff without asking the GM (like crafting a hundred+ items without consulting with GM or paying the XP cost).

That guy who spends all game whining about everything and is about as social and assertive as a bag of nails.

That girl who wants us to treat her differently because she is a girl and behaves like we should be amazed that she's playing role playing games with us.

That guy who is constantly drunk. Often to the point where he doesn't contact with what is happening in the game.

Ugh. That guy. The last one i dealt with was playing as a wizard. (Why must they always be spell casters for me?)

Anyway, the mission for our 4 man group was to go to a local crypt where a necromancer was hanging out and causing trouble. All we had to do was stop him from digging people up and causing mayhem.

Simple right?

Well...when we got to the site, the village elder forgot to mention that said crypt was actually a necropolis for a long forgotten race. We didn't have a cleric, so they put me, Mr. Paladin, up front in the fight against the undead. We slug our way through a small army of undead and find a safe spot to break camp.

The room was fairly large, a 20ft.x20ft. room with mirrors placed on the walls roughly 5ft. from each other. "That guy" decided to be a jack ass and launch a fireball at one in order to smash it. Nice try, but it failed, resulting in a reflected fireball hurling at our resident kobold sorcerer. The DM was kind enough to let me make a roll to see if i was able to put my shield in front of the little guy in time.

I passed my check and stopped the fireball in time. The player using the kobold looked at me & smiled. The beginning of a true bro bond was forming. continuing in next post.

So we made our way through the necropolis, coming across a small altar adjacent to the hallway leading to the necro's lab. (Altar on the left, lab on the right.)

We had our rogue scope the altar for normal traps while our jackass wizard checked for any arcane traps. The wizard found a magical aura on the back of the altar while the rogue found a floor trap a few feet away from it. The wizard wanted to poke it but the group voted to leave it alone.

That and we told him if he died because he poked the traps, we'd leave him there to rot.

Moving on...We made it to the lab and found the necro working on a huge flesh golem. When the necro heard us come in, he was furious that we killed so many of his children to get to him. Dude was whacked out of his gourd. The kobold struck up a conversation with him about his work, which started to calm him down and make him a little more reasonable.

The wizard decided to be a jackass yet again and smash a few vials belonging to the necromancer and claimed "Lol, chaotic neutral!" before casting ~Expeditious Retreat~ and leaving us there.

The necromancer flipped out and woke his latest project up. We could have fought the thing & it's master, but that was akin to jumping into a pool full of razor blades. We hauled ass outta there.

While we were running down the hallway, the kobold remembered the trap and decided he'd to cast a grease spell on the floor when he got close enough. Me & the rogue made it around the corner leading to the exit when the spell was cast. Instead of letting him sacrifice himself for the team, we both grabbed the little guy and yanked him to us right when the flesh golem & it's master (who was riding on the shoulder of the thing) stepped into the grease.

>All according to plan

The golem slid upright & face first into a wall and bounced backwards off of it and into the magical trap. The necro rigged an exploding arcane trap to fuck up anyone who came to mess with it. The golem soaked a bit of the damage but set off the second trap, which turned out to be a false floor that unlocked when the first trap went off, opening up to a pit full of spikes. It flailed to keep it's balance and fell in backwards, causing it and the necromancer to get impaled on said spikes.

We didn't mean to kill him, but me, the kobold & the rogue bro fisted at the end result of teamwork.

What happened to the wizard you ask? He bitched at the DM and wanted to know if he made it out of the crypt or not. Well....the DM decided to look him dead in the eye and say "Remember that blind corner you took on the way out? A grue was right there. Guess what happened to you? You were most likely eaten by him."
Never in my life have i tasted tears that were so delicious.

Our last That Guy was an irritating, impatient faggot who tried to steer the party around when he felt we were wasting time deciding a course of action.

He started ordering us around and complaining constantly like a bitch.

One time, we were planning a ship voyage that would take us about a month. We needed to hire a crew for our ship and purchase supplies, and spent maybe 20-15 minutes discussing how we were going to pay for it. That Guy wandered off to the dock, walked up to the first guy he met and said "Durr I need to hire a crew and am willing to pay top dollar, hurr, can you recommend me a good captain, derp derp derp." Idiot had no subtlety and flaunted his money like a fool, so of course the guy he was talking to tried to con him. He said he was a captain and he could crew our ship for just 9 GOLD PIECES A DAY PER SAILOR. Idiot was like "DURR SURE WHATEVER LET'S JUST GO." It would have cost us, like, thousands of gold and he didn't care. When I pointed that out and everyone said there was no way in hell we were paying such a stupid amount, he threw a fit and quit in a rage, then came back into the channel a few minutes later (IRC) and posted a tl;dr bulleted list of complaints and insults that none of us cared about because he was a useless faggot.

His character was some special snowflake with an enchanted shield that had a demon bound to it or something, and he talked to it constantly like a creeper, and acted like we had any reason to trust him. He tried to do a bunch of stupid shit with some class feature that gave him minor telekinetic powers, like picking a lock when he had no lockpicking skill and his ability wasn't actually able to do things like that anyway.

God what a prick that guy was.

Also, when we started pointing out that he was being bossy, he admitted that he was going to make it his responsibility to keep the game moving at a faster pace. Like he had any authority. We had no in-character reason to allow him to lead us because he was so fucking untrustworthy, and he was totally oblivious to that.

He also kept putting smileys in his posts as if that would make him sound friendly and reasonable, when it made him sound more like a condescending weasel with a shit-eating grin. Thought he could fool us with honeyed words.

I am my groups That Guy.

I realise it, but I disagree that its a problem.

The thing that makes me that guy is that I always try to take things in the game personal with my character.

If a general feels the need to command his army, even though its not my place, I will walk up to his tent and tell him what he should do.

If a dragon comes and saves us and turns into a beautiful maiden, you bet your ass I'm going to hit on her.

Why? Because fuck the npcs and setting of the world. I set out to be the god damn hero people write stories about, not random adventurer who came to town #2981374

The only problem is that nobody else in the group does this, so I am that guy who tries to devour the spotlight.

When I was DMing, the party druid cast Flaming Sphere and burned down two streets of thatched houses, some of which were owned by local gang members. I thought that some kids crying in the next house along from the flames would be a nice touch, add another level to the encounter (they'd have been easy to rescue), maybe make the druid player less rash in future.

He does nothing about the kids and keeps attacking NPC thugs, while out of character having a go at me and the other players for backing me. I didn't feel like breaking out Deus Ex Let You Feel Good About Yourself, so the kids died. Which just caused more rage.

In the two week gap until the next session he did not shut the fuck up about it and raised it in conversation every time the subject got remotely close (i.e. anything mildly /tg/ related) until I got pissed off and retconned the whole bloody thing.

In truth, the necromancer NE was better company than the druid NG.

>Wizards? HAR!
Assumes wizards are all old and wear pointy hats. Though while funny, he claims them all as wise old weak men and got real mad when one of them kung fu flicked his feet from under him with his staff. The DM rolled a 20, what could have been done?

(He also thought that wizards only cast fire, ice and thunder as spells. We educated him on this, though.)

>Fighter? DUR LOL!
Assumes fighters can only use sword and shield and can't touch casters or magic.
Gets mad when the fighter gets magical weapons and then when the fighter dodges his spell. Despite knowing about the evasion feat, he argues about how he is a spell caster and that fighters are weak.

>Bard? HUR LOL!
Assumes Bards only play the harp and run away all the time.
Gets mad when Bard flying uppercuts his character in the chin and puts him on his ass. Argues endlessly when Bards are able to use magic he cannot.

>Ranger? HURDUR!
Assumes that they are an elf specific class and that they are only good with bows and arrows.
Gets mad when the ranger of the group deals more damage then he does and has magical powers. Argues endlessly about how rangers are non magic users and cannot learn it.

>Sorcerers?
"Weak spell casters", apparently. Argued about how Charisma wasn't for spells. He also claimed that the sorcerer MUST BE EVIL AND HAVE CAULDRONS!!!1

>Barbarians?
Assumes that they are all retarded. Though we all laughed at the though of one becoming illiterate upon multi-classing and how, thankfully, this does not in fact happen, our That Guy thinks that barbarians can't multi-class because they are RETARDS XD.
Emphasizes on how he tricks barbarians with magic and how they flee in terror of his magical might.

We have a buddy who is really inventive in our group. He pulls ideas and tricks out of his head real quick, but they're like a masterful weeks planning, only they're made in seconds.

That Guy hates him. That Guy is the only one who hates him. That Guy is a typical That Guy anyway.
That Guy tries to counter one of our genius bros tricks with his own, shat out one which he made up on the spot because he thought it sounded clever and because it would make our genius look like an idiot.

Basically, this is how it normally goes:
>Enemy is about to fuck shit up, he's over there!
>Group hero uses Dimensional Door to teleport the Barbarian above the bad guy. The Barb lands on him and saves the day, sort of.
This is the common kind of stuff. There are much better examples. But no, That Guy decides that this time...:
>Hero about to solve problem?
>use telekinesis/geas to yank/control the guy next to crane release lever to use/knock him into the crane release lever to drop the create in the jaws of the crane onto the other bad guys?
>NOPE.tiff.bz2

That Guy was as furious as a tiger who just got it's favorite meat stolen. Essentially, as That guy was RPing a fem, she was like a dream piece of meat to That Guy.
Clever bro was a little mad too, but what can you expect. So were we.

We asked That Guy why he did it, expecting him to be an assassin or something without telling us, so's to add to the shock and awe. If so we were all prepared to laugh. Unfortunately he didn't answer us and instead asked why the DM killed his character. In the obnoxious hail of spittle that assaulted him, the DM tried to explain and calm shit down.

We all confirmed in front of him that he attacked our bro for no reason other than jealousy and tried to move on and work out what to do with That Guy. That Guy tried to argue about why he did what he did after we declared him guilty of being a dick; something about our bro being a secret evil assassin or something.

Much rage happened. Eventual subsidence. He re-rolled. His new character was just his old one with the name reversed.

The next game was pretty fun, aside form That Guy, trying to screw us over as if we didn't know why he tried to kill bro before. He pulled the same stunts over and over. We ended up handing him over to the guards, since this time we rolled good guys.

That Guy got pissy.

This time, he tried to mess the rest of us up because we had built on our own characters traits in Role Playing fashion, e.i: Ranger letting himself being thrown by the fighter- FF8 Angelo Cannon style and the like.

He waltzes into rooms where enemies are going to be like nothing bad will happen to him. (And due to concealment and stuff from some warlock thing and curses, they probably won't.)

To start with his car was a 90s era Ford mustang that we had effectionally named "Shittyshitybangbang" because it back fired at least once a week. The car was falling to pieces, exposed wires littered that dashboard, and I can remember at least one time were it stalled in the middle of the freeway. He had the keys to his car but had to hot wire it every single time to make it start because it was such a peice of shit. The back seat was covered in discarded magic cards and trash. The front seat was littered with discarded fast food wrappers and for some strange reason he had an axe and a rope in his trunk at all times.

How he got the money for it I'll never know because as far as I knew he never worked a day in his life. Despite playing a netdeck and possesing an encyclopedic knowledge of the game I stomped him every single week with a Jund devour deck.

>> No.14309628

Hold the die by opposite corners and spin it. You can buy/make litte devices that do the same.

>> No.14309646

>>14309531
I believe if you can't spin them on a corner, they are generally weighted. Of course, this depends on how weighted they are, as well as your ability to spin things.
The only time I had any experience whatsoever with unfair dice was entirely by accident and wholly hilarious. I was at my friend's (incredibly disorganised) house for WHFB, and we scrounged up all the dice we could find. I always roll the see-through red dice when casting spells, and I kept getting Irresistible Force (double 6's) at an unbelievable level. It turned out that one of the dice we found had 6's on every side, but looked just like all of the other red dice. It was amazing it took us an entire game to figure it out, but we had some laughs by the end.

Similarly, I have one die that's nothing but 2s and 6s. During a game, I decided to make a series of rolls using that die (which was also red) and a normal white die. The game went on for several minutes afterward with nobody noticing. After taking those few minutes to make sure, I told everybody and showed them the die. We laughed about it a bit and decided to just move on.

I still have it and sometimes, though rarely, pull it out and roll it for shits and giggles.

I know a guy who has a d3 that he used once to troll a player in a Deadlands game. He did it to me, too: handed it to me to make a roll and I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't roll anything above a 3 after like six tries.

A six-sided d3, by the way.

>Second session goes AFK halfway through, we go on without him and use him as bait for the plaguebringer

>First time GMing Deathwatch.
>Space Hulk mission
>No non-combat interaction, maybe one skill-check
>Fights every 10 yards or so

That Guy.

Have you seen Superbad? Do you remember Seth? Picture related.

Imagine you knew someone who looked and acted exactly like Seth, and possessed the nickname Nacho.

Now, imagine he ALWAYS plays rogue/thief type characters, minmaxes as much as humanly possible, tries to steal everything ever, and because he's a huge fan of Jack Black he yells DECAPITATIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON out loud whenever someone gets decapitated (Brutal Legend reference). He plays elves and stuff as well, for example AN ELF WITH A DARK PAST WHO SOLD HALF HIS SOUL TO THE SHADOWFEL, et cetera. He also talks about WoW a lot and constantly mentions how Blood Elves are the most awesome race ever. He often likes going off on his own to 'scout ahead' and do a shitload of checks.

Let's see, had one that guy during an online game:

When it wasn't his turn, and sometimes when it was, would go afk for as much as an hour to, quite literally, do housework. We'd ask him where he was, and he'd say that he was vacuuming, or doing laundry, or whatever.

He'd get mad when I'd tell him that he had to make a roll to do something and even more mad when I wouldn't tell him a DC.

He'd always play female characters so he could act like a bimbo/lesbian and try to fuck his way out of roleplay encounters because that was what he thought roleplaying was.

When he wasn't allowed to play a female character, he'd play weird stuff, or stuff that he didn't know how it worked.

Claimed that he didn't know how to cast spells in 3.5e, but almost always played spellcasters and then complain when he would nearly die.

>Constantly railroading party even when they try to derail.
>Constantly talking about how if he ever played a mage in anyone elses game he would rape them with shitty spell compliments.
>Mispronounces words Lich as Lick. Origins and Oh Ridge in's.
>Bitches when we come up with clever ways to go around his traps / fight his monsters.
>Offers ridiculous amounts of "bonus" xp to anyone who can describe a kill with disturbing accuracy.
>gets so fucking high during games he forgets what hes doing.

Other things he played included the Sniper in TF2, a sniper in CS:S, and a sniper in CoD)
>He says he loved watching and would constantly ask if he could get in on the next round (they were short little games), we would try to start a new game when he was busy looking up Dropkick Murphys vids on youtube (we all had to be subjected to his horrible taste in music, and there was one song in particular he would play ever fucking meeting - an emotional audio steamer that he had an attachment to because his girlfriend of a week left him several months before)
>The teacher supervising us takes out an old dusty zombie game box and TG fucking flips shit because the first L4D had just come out so he was obsessed with zombies
>We all make silent, pleading expressions to the teacher, but the guy was a little sadistic and decided to push the game on us more
>TG constantly shook the table to the point where I would actually sit at another one where I could see and approach only for my turn
>TG would sing along to his shitty song loudly and stomp on the floor with his feet while sitting in his seat backwards
>TG would ultimately be an asshat that treated everything like an FPS on Steam and not actually RP anything

I'm so glad I decided not to play the DnD game one of the other guys in the club set up, because TG was there. Apparently he played a barbarian named Conan and only spoke like Arnold.
