Why is /tg/ so afraid of characters or concepts seeming 'fetishy'? Is there really such an epidemic of weirdos joining your group and using it as a venue to play out their fantasies?

I've been in many different gaming groups in my time and I've never once run into someone like that. I realize this evidence is anectodal but given how prevalent this "fetish player" scourge seems to be on /tg/ it seems unusual that I've yet to encounter this problem.

>> No.22303801

I know I would accept any character that fit the setting as long as I thought the guy was not doing it for fetish reasons and it seemed like it would not cause problems for the game or other players.

>> No.22303827

This, the problem doesn't lie in the concept itself, but in the player who gets visibly aroused by his character and related shenanigans. It's just skeevy, is all.

>> No.22303844

This is what I'm asking about. You guys keep talking about 'that guy' who is getting aroused at the table but I just don't believe it exists with such ubiquity.

>> No.22303965

Because we're confusing. Fetish fulfillment, Mary Sues, freeform powerwank, and "that-guy" behavior are things we claim not to want, but at the same time we have monstergirl threads.

Anyway, lesbo space nuns fetish dump is a go.

>> No.22303988

Because trolls are quick to latch onto anything sex-related and turn it into a trolling contest instead of a proper thread.

Now, combine that with the fact that every person who posts here about fetishes in games is also a "denizen of the internet" and you should figure it out.

Also, some really obnoxious people who go into fetish RP gave the whole thing a bad name.

>> No.22304021

It's still happening; there was a thread yesterday. The holiday season has sped up the board, so there isn't one all the time I think, and maybe interest is waning.

>> No.22304048

Because if most people put sexuality into a game, it isnt usually a problem, thus no one will talk about it

The only reason it seems to exist in such a great number is because the people who end up causing these kinds of problems are the people who take it too far and end up becoming the subject of what essentially become 'old wives' tales'.

I have a barbarian character who has every visual quality in his appearance that would turn me on (if you -really- have to know, check the spoiler at the end), and yet - apart from some behind-the-scenes banter with my equally gay GM - not once when I describe him or show artwork of my character to the other players do I emphasize that fact. It's a matter that is put out of the way of the game, in the back of my mind during the actual session.

But even if that subject came up because of the game's tone, I don't write in all of my own personal turn-ons as qualities for my characters. If my barbarian were to be forced into a situation by someone that I would personally submit to because the idea of it turned me on, he would more likely try to bash the perpetrator's head in with his own two fists because he's no-one's plaything. Just because a character is an extension of some part of -myself- does NOT mean that the character is -just like me-.

The way I see it, it's part of the human condition - many people want to look down upon those who do not conform to a social norm, whether it is through pity, ridicule, or discrimination. Because there are people out there who are unable to suppress their sexual feelings at the gaming table, their fellow players have turned their backs on them and given us these stories. It's kind of sad, now that I think about it.

The character is a bear, as in a stout, hairy man.

Tabletop games are fantasy and wish-fulfillment. We accept this and enjoy it.

However, there are certain aspects we do not enjoy. There are those who want to be brave, or charismatic, or powerful, or brilliant, or any number of things. We quite like those.

There are those who want to be more powerful than everyone else, who want to be sadistic, who want to be fetish fuel. These are generally not welcome at the table.

Some players fail to see the distinction and bring the wrong kind of fantasy to the table, ruining the fun of others.

It's actually quite simple.

She's the commissar's wife, as I recall, so no luck there.
I want to know where they got/how they made that plasma pistol. That thing looks sweet.

I'm pretty sure there's a thread archived on suptg where she posted most of those pics and some costume advice. I don't remember the title though.

Gilding is the word you're looking for.
