I want to kill them but they are usually re-occuring characters that the GM gives immunity to whenever we talk to them (they only show up when we're bound, they do their best to run away, are actually high powered characters who will be bosses later) etc.

The game is on hiatus, but if he starts it again and keeps it up I might bring it up next time. Just makes it hard to play a female character without feeling like a fag.

It actually sounds like a good game where the rules are bent slightly so the game doesn't devolve into senseless shit.

This GM is really found of saving throws, he uses them for everything. His reasoning behind it was that my Druidic nature was fighting my Draconic nature. Its been a recurring theme in our sessions that the Druid side just wants to be free while the Dragon just wants money, it seems kinda silly writing it out but its all been his idea. I just wanted to have dragon claws and wings.
The reason I stopped to take the gem was because when he says high DC that usually means its a 25 - 35 range, which is near impossible (once he even said I needed a Nat-20 for one, which I got luckily or it would have killed me), so instead of just dealing with him trying to force me to stop I just did. As for not giving up the Gem how often do you get the chance to kill somone with a giant diamond?

I joined up a game on Roll20, and things are looking pretty solid, but one of the players is playing a Lawful Stupid Monk in Pathfinder. And I don't throw that term around a lot, either. The player is constantly going against reason in order to force everything to be his version of lawful, which seems to be as follows-

-No one is allowed to lie, ever.
-If a strategy to overcome a situation doesn't work, you are obliged to stick to that strategy.
-Improvisation is a bad thing.
-Punishment may only be dealt by any shmuck with a badge who looks sort of like a cop.
-Sneaking is not lawful.
-Only lawful people are allowed to intimidate. Otherwise, it's not right.

It has only been the first session but he's caused problems- It seems like he is trying to make decisions for the entire party, which wouldn't be so bad if they didn't contradict the party's own goals and motivations. Let me be clear here, the rest of the party aren't insane bastards either- we've got a NG Druid, my PC is a NG Rogue/Oracle, a LN Ranger, a TN Bard, and a CN Alchemist, who oddly enough. There was even a point at which the Ranger and the Druid were telling him to loosen up a touch. I don't have a problem with characters being strictly bound to a moral code, but he's playing in a way that directly impedes not only the story but everyone else's fun.

"Yes, I agree that this man should be brought to justice, but bringing a spell caster before the inquisition, (who burn non-sanctioned magic users as witches,) for stealing a crate of mining tools is too extreme. You must understand that the currently established Law is not always in favor of the people it governs. Wasn't your vow to help people in the first place?"

Moral of the story, make sure your PC has reason if they are lawful.

>Other gamer says he's really big into Call of Duty.
>You take his game and break it because of your own past experiences with the game and saying you're sick of Call of Duty fans ruining it for the rest of gamers.

I mean, from the way the guy told the story he could have honestly just being trying to be thoughtful but the GM's past bad experiences and the bad connotations that are mixed in with the word could have caused him to rage.

Again, maybe I'm not checking privilege or something but as a white straight guy who believes in equal rights it's just getting so hard to know what the hell I'm allowed to do without offending people any more.

The wizards were very close-knit people who arrived on the continent and jealously guarded their secrets, and wound up starting to murder one-another to get a hold of their secrets. A single missing book would be enough to have everyone nailed to a wall until it turned up.

As for the elves, the continent was utterly deserted and the original landers were entirely human, and reaching the continent is near-impossible and it's a miracle in itself the first people made it there. I had no issue with him being an elf but the fact was that even if he was one of the original elves it wouldn't be possible.

And yes, and was willing to give summaries if they wanted them.

There, you have your elf players character background without infringing on your setting.

Not immediately, start playing your character along the lines of 'never be taken alive', like plan ways to die gloriusly rather than be captured. Either suicide charges (alchemist fire and thunderstones are rpetty cheap) or straight up knife in the heart.
See how far DM is willing to push just to make a damsel out of you. Call him out on it.
If your character is dead by this point, roll uo next character, female, as whatever you want, roleplay however you want. If he still doesnt cut it out then quit.

It was the one time I wanted to botch the hell out of that roll. I popped the biggest boner when those three dice came up sixes. It was a glorious counterboner to fend off the many creepy advances past and present.

I think the thing that unsettles me the most, thinking back on that game, was that he seemed to "get a rise" every time he got a rise out of toying with a party member. Also that I was his favorite target, but that was probably because my IC and OOC responses were quite emphatic.

Funny thing's happening in the Black Crusade game I'm part of, actually. We've got two mutes, one of whom has a magic mask that gets his meaning across. The other... doesn't. Which means he uses sign language. Yes, he's actually Khornate as fuck and did 52 points of damage with a single swing in the first combat of the game, but I don't think he min-maxed. It was difficult to anyway, given most of us know very little about the 40k lore and the game system. Also, it's rapidly leading to hilarity, so we're all having fun.

Honestly, most of the ponyfags I've encountered have been pretty well behaved, and I'm even found myself enjoying a homebrew campaign one of them invited me to a while back. There being a shapeshifter race kind of swayed me though.

That's at least most of the time. At least 1/4 of the ponyfags are really fucked up, be it emotionally, mentally, physically, or all of the above. I swear the amount of autism I wind up witnessing makes me cringe.

He showed you pedo porn and you laughed? I would think the normal reaction would be anger and maybe a little bit of shock. Who the fuck shows off their fetish like that especially when it's so controversial?

My best guess is that it was one of those really nervous, "Oh god get me out of here" laughs.

I had a pedo friend in college. He never showed me his porn, but if he did, I would be very careful about how I responded. He was also 6'2" and 200 something pounds, and liked to show off his collection of large knives.
Otherwise, a swell guy.

What do yo expect? Their game was shit, because they still had a manchild playing with them.

No, they just ganged up on the shit player, and pretended it was fun roleplaying.

>>28030728
You mean making the best of an otherwise terrible situation?
And as for ganging up, he was trying to kill a party member, albeit an avian one.

It's their very own fault for allowing a problem player at their table in the first place. Also, you can easily read how >>28016933 is a self-entitled problem player himself.

He is part of a shitty group playing a shit game. Which is why he brags about it here on /tg/

I got a story similar to this.

>semi-original scifi military setting
>allied warship warps in and requests fuel from the players
>they panic
>the players run multiple background checks and check multiple databases and deployment schedules to confirm the ship's identity
>after several minutes of arguing they power down their weapons and allow the NPC captain to board their ship
>NPC explains situation in detail and asks for fuel again
>the players finally agree and begin transferring fuel to his ship
>NPC captain is a friendly guy and offers to give the players a tour of his ship since it's a new model they've never seen
>the players panic
>acting captain takes everyone into another room and leaves the NPC at the airlock (with an MP guarding him) while they begin to plan
>acting captain decides to go onto the allied ship alone, orders the other crew to disregard his life and destroy the ship at the first sign of hostilities
>he boards and gets a tour from the NPC captain
>during this time, I'm informed by the players that they are attempting to hack into the ship's systems and monitor everything happening
>we go through the process of getting that done, they are now in the allied ship's servers and literally monitoring everything that is happening
>they stealthily engage their weapon systems again and target the ship, then keep a hand hovered over the FIRE button just waiting for their allies to do something suspicious
>nothing suspicious happens
>tour ends, the acting captain returns to the players ship and the NPCs leave with their fuel
>the players then take the effort to send a transmission to fleet command warning them of the ALLIED SHIP and giving them its warp destination
>mfw all this is happening

You seem unnecessarily irate about this.
You wouldn't happen to be involved, would you?
