Obviously your DM saw that your character lacked hatred. He was training him to hone his hatred to become strong enough to overcome his brother.

>> No.38542083

Back when I was around 14-16 there was a time in which I was discovering my fetishes, kinks, and general likes and dislikes when it came to romance/sexuality. There was much masturbation to be had and I probably let my magical realm slip into my art and writing.

Not sure if I ever took it too far, at least where other people could see. I've always been kinda sensitive about not being an asshole. Which might be an asshole thing to say.

Sorry. Have cool art.

>> No.38542114

>"Have you seen THIS MAN?"
You needed more love and sorrow with the hate, anon. And hamfisted screaming.

>Party sets off to track me brother
>A very cringeworthy moment was when we were setting up in the inn in the city and everyone was shooting the shit and laughing and my character was standing on the roof of the inn, staring at the full moon and saying "Soon brother, you will feel my hatred"
>We get tasked by a merchant to help save his kinapped daughter, she was nabbed by a cult

We eventually made up and I stopped being such a gigantic faggot, we played together for a couple of years after that and we're all friends to this day, I kept the same character and I played him melodramatic as a joke after that and I had a few throw backs to my brother and my whiny days while playing.

I kinda basically indoctrinated someone/abunchofpeople into shipping my OTP over the course of two months. The OTP in question consisted of characters in a series that that person was writing a fanfic of. The fic got a huuuuge amount of people following it due to drunkenness, suffering, and lesbians combined with a crazy amount of GLORIOUS COMBAT. My OTP won along side the lesbian ship that was kinda cracky, but made sense within the fic itself.

If you know what I'm talking about, I have no regrets. Red/Blue and White/Black forever.

We had this healer who frequently talked to ghosts and helped them rest, usually, when he accomplished that (killing a murderer, delivering last words, saving a family) the DM made him stumble into treasure.
The DM sent us a ghost to expose the plot. Other guy wants to get it in on all this ectoplasmic loot.
The ghost (death by suicide) finish its speech and jumped out of a cliff.
Player followed.
DM warned him not to.
He does it anyway convinced of treasute.
His character became a pancake and we all was certain that he was drunk, which he wasn't.

More of a group effort and nothing that bad, but I still feel a little guilty about it to this day.

One of the players in our group when we were just starting out decided he wanted to try his hand at DMing. So he sets up a little adventure about a ghost girl tethered to a house by a lake (that he told me later he lifted wholesale from vidya) with the idea being that we'd investigate the spooky house, figure out some riddles and put the girls soul to rest. Apparently he'd written down the puzzles and made some new ones and everything.

We burned down the house within about five minutes of finding it, leaving the DM to stare at us with sad, sad eyes and mumble, "Well, I guess she goes away then."

Poor guy. I still feel bad about that.

I remember trying to play a good character in an otherwise neutral party. One of the players desperately wanted this meteor fragment from this noble because he was an artifacts. The noble never showed it to him and the character went to the guys house disguised as a rival noble and burned down the nobles house. The players had already played out being super desperate to get this meteor fragment and flat out said he would kill someone over artifact related stuff, he threatened me because he thought my illusion was a iron golem earlier. But I never saw him do it. So I had my character ask him what he did when we saw the burning house and told him he should turn himself in. It was pretty that guy of me to meta like that, but I realized it and left the group to enjoy themself.

I was That Guy last Friday.
I was invited to this big event where the regular party members are the BBEG's (they're doing an evil campaign) so the DM invited other players in as a rival adventuring party to infiltrate their fortress and defeat them. PVP-type of deal, right.
The DM and two of the players are neighbors (same apartment building). One of the players is hosting in his place.
He has two rooms in his apartment. I was told that one group would be playing in the living room while the other group would be playing in the bedroom. We would all squeeze into the living room when the rival parties come face to face.
That's how the setup was explained to me beforehand.

That's not what happened though.
One group got put into our host's apartment, the other group got put into the DM's apartment.

The DM has two dogs. Two poorly trained, undisciplined dogs that bark at strangers and try to jump up on people. The DM puts us in a room with his dogs and leaves. The dogs see their master gone and a bunch of strangers they don't recognize. They get territorial.

I have a problem with this; I'm cynophobic.

I ended up being That Guy who freaked and left 'for no reason'.

I once played a profusely racist elf who hated the short races.
I made one of the other players feel so bad he didn't want to play anymore and the GM had to step in and talk with me. To this day I'm ashamed that I didn't notice he wasn't comfortable with it.
