Well, the last That Guy isn't around any more due to his manslaughter conviction, but the current That Guy has an absolutely infuriating habit of mana weaving other people's decks when they're passed to him to cut. He always hides it when a judge is nearby, but he's openly stated he does it to piss people off.

First one ended up date raping a chick the group knew, but they were both equally horrible people so I don't really care about the well-being of the woman in question. She used to deal drugs and still does a lot of them and was an enabler for a friend of mine and now he does a shitload of drugs with her. And he would metagame and make munchkin characters and name them shit like Rand Al'Thor and try to break every game he got involved with because "LOLSOFANNEY" when everyone else stopped thinking it was funny after the first time he accidentally someone's campaign.

The second was a tryhard powergamer that couldn't stop metagaming to save his life and cheated on his rolls.

Then there's one, who doesn't quite count as a that guy since he's not typically that bad, but I've caught him cheating on rolls because he gets WAY too attached to his characters and RP's almost a little too much.

In Character? He's a lolrandum wizard, who has, in the course of the last few sessions:

>Tried to light a blunt on a table of volatile chemicals, leading to the only clue we had of the BBEG's whereabouts dissapearing
>Got 'annoyed' by birds while in town, 'accidently' cast a fireball and killed a flock of pigeons, and proceeded to spend the entire 8 hour session screaming about it
>Flat out said 'no' to almost every quest hook, and claims there's no reason to stay with the party
>Hears the region we're going to has 'bear riders'
>Decides to abandon the quest and go to the complete opposite end of a Russia sized area to try and convince the bear people to revolt
>Whines for hours when the rest of us want to continue to the city we actually need to go to

Out of character is almost worse.
>The pigeon thing, but spent the next session asking if we remembered that time he killed the pigeons
>Tried to bribe several of us OOC if we went with his bear people thing, and threatened to quit if he didn't get his way
>Claimed he had a 'family thing' the night before we had a session planned, and we later found out (from someone else) he was hosting a session
>Made a group consisting of some of our players and several people I've introduced him to, and making the people in our group work around his game

Speaking of the DM, he used to run pure fluff RPGs on camp outs w/ our BSA troop. He's decent enough now, but he used to pull shit like this:

>You're in a room, -description of room-
Can I go through the door?
So what's outside the room?
>You haven't gone through the door yet
Ok, I go through the door
>You run into the door
What, why?
>You never opened it
Fine, I open the door and leave the room
>How do you leave the room?
Through the door I just opened.
>You can't go through the door, it's wooden
Through the doorway then
>Okay, so you're outside now

He made us describe everything in impossible detail, it was excruciating.

And I doubt anyone here cares much about this, and I know no one I know will read this, but it's really nice to get this off of my chest.

Yeah. He was really mad we switched to the new D&D edition, and he had dumped his girlfriend. She told me he was planning a mass shooting but I laughed her off cause I was loyal to my friend and thought she was a whore. Plus he doesn't even own any guns, just a flip-out spring knife thingy he bought to "protect himself" at work.

But yeah, his character died at the table, because he basically committed suicide running in to fight 5 ogres at once. he killed 2, then was BTFO. I got up to go get some more soda, turned back when one of the girls screamed to see him trying to cut his own throat. He didnt hit the right artery or whatever, I hate talking abotu this stuff because blood makes me feel like fainting. But I literally called 911 and bandaged his neck while almost falling uncosncious. A week later he messaged me from some suicide watch place saying he hated me for ruining his death or some retarded shit.


It's only been a few weeks. He's still in the hospital and we haven't played since. I'm still kinda in shock about the whole thing.

Our worst That Guy tried poisoning the group after his character died for being a backstabbing fucktard. His rogue literally tried backstabbing the Paladin because lolreligion, fucked it up and got a chest full of longsword from the paladin and fighter.

So he comes in with brownies the next session along with a new character. Something is wrong right away, the brownies taste like fucking medicine on the first bite. None of us are more than a bite and one of us got sick just from that.

Turned out the shitter ground up a whole bottle of Hydrocodone and Tramadol into the brownie mix as revenge. He got kicked out of the group and the player that got sick stalked him to his ork at Taco Bell, after we all found out from his sister days later, and threw him through a plate glass window.

Man, after suicide, rape, manslaughter, and being greedy about donuts, my that guy stories feel bland in comparison.

-tries to play a homebrewed class that he swore was legit

-tried using literally made up feats that he swore were totally in some splat book somewhere, but couldn't even provide a source

-Came to a session with a character that he "rolled really well on," prompting me to ask him how he had multiple stats over 20. His answer? He rolled d20 for stats, apparently that is how his other group does it, and thought it was the standard. (So he claims)

-played a lawful neutral character and committed wanton murder in the first session

-tries to play races with ridiculous level adjustments without actually dealing with level adjustment

-Fudges dice CONSTANTLY. Always makes an excuse to to play slightly removed from the rest of the group, and thinks holding up his die and showing us that totally legit nat 20 for the fifth time in a row lends any support to his claim

-whenever it isn't his turn, doesn't pay attention and browses fucking imgur on his laptop. No matter how many times I tell him to put away his computer and pay attention, claims he is looking at his character sheet which he always conveniently keeps digital.

-ignores starting wealth spending rules, purposefully misunderstands magic weapon pricing (I can totally afford a +2 keen mithril katana with 5000 gold!"

He isn't that bad a guy outside of anything that can be called a game, but in games he is the biggest fucking cheater I know. When we did D&D over roll20, he insisted on rolling real dice and then showing us the result with his camera rather than just using the built in dice roller.

He's more of a secondary that guy. He only cares about stats, literally every character wields a kukri because of the higher crit ratio. He also doesn't seem to understand what roleplaying is. He either just says what he does out of character (Because he has no character) or he stays silent. And I've yet to get a character with any actual backstory, I've had to yell at him for being 3 sessions in and him still not giving his character a name.

I've talked about Ken the Furry a few times here so some of this may be familiar.

First a description. Ken was fat, like 350+ lbs, had greasy curly blonde hair, and a literal neckbeard, he shaved his face but not his neck. He always had a big tin of off brand cheetos balls and drank Mt Dew by the 2 Liters bottle (most nights he'd drink 2), and for some reason alway carried a six D-Cell Mag Lite Flashlight in his backpack. He smelled of onions and vaseline.

His habits included...

When rolling his dice, he'd hold the flashlight like it was a titantic cock and rub his dice hand on it, moan in what he thought was an erotic tone, and "spew" the dice out like they were his jizz.

When eating his off-brand cheetos he'd never get a paper towel off the roll on the table, he'd wipe them on whatever was handy. Normally his pants or the arms of the chair he'd sit in. This infuriated the host as Ken's chair would develop a crust of nasty cheetos residue.

He sometimes also ate potted meat food product at games. He was especially fond of spreadable meat. The shit looked and smelled like canned dog food. The worst was when he'd bring both and put cheetos balls on his spreadable meat and crackers.

>> No.41902849

On to shit he did in game...

He liked to play little pervy fucks (gnomes when he had to play a standard race) and acted as the sidekick/enabler for other players' bad habits, we had a giantess fetishist and a slave fetishist in the group. Most often some brand of dick-ass thief with a hefty side of magic.

When anything went for races, like the times GM wanted to run GURPS Fantasy, he played his fursona, a giant blue dog. If the GM let him it was a quadruped, but if not he'd make him a dog-man. His fursona's primary attack form was pissing acid.

His most infamous thing was the creation of fairy butt-beads and butt-beads of force. The former is not quite what you think, they weren't butt-beads for fairies, they were butt-beads made from living fairies. He got the idea after capturing a bunch of fairies to sell as slaves with slave fetishist and thought that it was sad that the giantess was sexually frustrated because no one was big enough to fuck her. The latter were made as an attempt to smuggle a magic item into a high security area, he shoved them up his ass to sneak them in. He then used them as "shit covered projectiles" against some guards we needed to contain.

On shit outside of the game...

He pulled the stereotypical creeper bullshit anytime anything vaguely female was around. For awhile though he had a ham planet girlfriend, but she dumped his ass. After she dumped him he showed up at the weekly session with tears in his eyes and cried five or six times during the night. According to the ham beast she caught him trying to hit on her 15 year-old sister (he was 22 at the time).

The last I heard of him was he got arrested for indecent exposure parked outside an adult novelty store shoving a butt-plug in his ass. That incident made the local paper. He got six months in the pokey for that incident. According the sex offender registry, he moved outstate shortly after he got out of jail.

All the other stuff he does is fucking shitty, no doubt, but just for the benefit of the doubt, the first time I played 3.5 the GM told me to roll a d20 for stats. It wasn't until I read the books months later that I found it what you were actually supposed to do.

Neurological in nature, no sensation over large portions of his body. I forget the technical name, although he's told it to us.

Put simply though, he can't feel a lot of his body, and he's constantly checking his hands and looking in a mirror to make sure he hasn't like cut or burned or broken anything.

That Guy crashed the GMs birthday party he wasn't invited to, got drunk in the first 15 minutes, took his shirt off and tried to get pity sex from fat girls and then passed out in a beanbag and puked all over the GMs really nice Star Wars carpet.

So the GM and I decide to clean him up and put him in the laundry room. Midway through lifting him up, he pukes on me, then starts thrashing, hits me, gets up and runs outside to puke again, leaving the GM to clean up this trail of puke through her house.

By about 1am he'd sobered up enough to walk and talk, roped the GM into listening to him complain about his life, then tried to kiss her. She walked out and sat on her bed, he followed, crawled on top of her and when she she said no and called out for me, he smothered her with a pillow.

For 2 weeks after, he left dozens of messages with the GM, saying that it was all the alcohol, he'll never drink again, that I'd planned it from the start and convinced him to drink half the bottle of expensive absinthe I brought, then formulated a conspiracy whereby I drugged him and coached him into doing what he did.

I do. When I build I normally come up with an idea and run with it. Like "I want to wield a really really big hammer" then with that in mind its really easy to see what works to that goal and what does not.

Right now for fun I'm trying to make an immunity canceler character. Oh your immune to fire? take fire damage anyways. What you cant take piercing damage? Well fuck you I'm gonna kill you with a spear. Kinda deal.

My "ability" as you can call it to just know what works with a glance leads to me reaching most of my goals. To be honest I don't understand why the rest of my group cant do it. It seems so easy to me yet they just cant think out side of the box. Before I would pick feats and everyone would groan about how it was useless and I should just get weapon focus. Then 2 levels later that feat enabled me to break the game. I would try to explain why it worked and was good but they just don't get it. Its like they cant see past the feat or class skill itself. They focus on just the feat or skill and don't even try to see how it would fit in with other feats or skills.

I had That Guy as a DM once.

-had two DM PCs, literal dragonloli, and some fucking mary sue rogue who regularly swooped in to save the day (often when it wasn't needed) and one shot things with a fucking whip.

-Tried to use his DM PCs to get into in game relationships with the players

-Basically said fuck rules. Knowledge of the manual didn't really help one, as he basically made up new rules whenever it suited his needs.

-Whenever we threw together funds to buy whatever greasy shit we were eating that week, he would throw in the least, and use the most on himself to ridiculous degrees. For instance, once we through together some money and went to get taco bell, we gave him the money, and he left to go get it in his car, when he came back, he basically gave us each two $1 tacos, and kept literally around 10 assorted items for himself, each of which likely cost more than everybody else's "meal" combined. For comparison, each person threw in about 10 bucks, and he said he would just add in his own funds as needed when he got there. After doing the math at some point later, he literally did not even put in any money himself.

To be continued.

That's a very subjective thing. It entirely depends on what you are trying to do. A feat can go from great to absolutely worthless in moments based on what your gaol is.

Here is one I used in a perma fear build that my group said was a wasted feat.


They said it would rarely if ever be used and was too specific. Normally yes that is the case but as I had done other things that results in every other creature even my ally's become feared it became an important step to removing that fear from my ally's without having to spend gold on items that I wanted to spend elsewhere.

Needless to say, in future sessions we did shit like ordered pizza, but he would also scarf down half the pizza before everybody else had finished their first piece. Gluttonous asshole. (He wasn't even that fat, somehow)

-At a certain point, he just stopped rolling dice for stuff altogether, arbitrary deciding when we got hit or didn't. Occasionally he would have us call high or low, or even or odd or some shit for things like fucking saves. (Instead of rolling a will save to resist being mind controlled for example, he would just have us call even or odd or high or low or some shit, when he was feeling generous and actually let us participate.)

And you might think, "well, maybe he just really wanted to tell a story."

Fucking wrong. His DM style could basically be called "stream of thought DMing," basically throwing us into whatever situation came to mind, in an extremely disjointed manner. One time we went from being in the deepest shithole in the underdark, to being on a pirate ship on the ocean. From a port. In the underdark. To the very above-ground ocean. And then it turns out his rogue DM PC knows the captain, who just happens to be here, in an ocean port in the underdark, after we had essentially been wandering aimlessly for days.
We literally went from traveling a normal road; to investigating a necromancer's keep; to literally falling into the underdark; to some strange demi-plane of some god he probably made up on the spot, where he basically said "look at all this cool stuff, oh shit you are being chased, run away!"; to stumbling back into the underdark, physically, like, there was a door; to the aforementioned pirate ship. All in one session that took about four hours maybe.

The spell list was just not a thing he consulted. His idea of a spell was "what do I want to have happen to that person? Okay, that is a spell now"

It was great until the DM made everything immune to mind effecting. It was forever ago but it was cleric based and through a combination of feats spells and items whenever I made an action everything that was within 120 feet of me regardless of line of sight or walls had to make a DC 62 will save or become feared. Based on their success or failure would determine which stage. Then on top of that if they failed a second time they they had to make a DC 42 fortitude save or die from instantly of fear.

The DM actually made a specific magic item that was "so cheep any farmer could buy one and made them immune to anything that affects their mind unnaturally." Shit pissed me off as it completely invalidated my character as I was starting to get fear piercing to fear things that were naturally immune to fear.

I ended up scraping the character because I couldn't do anything else. One of the players even said "Shoulda just focused on healing like clerics are supposed to do." Doing what the classes are supposed to do isn't fun. I want to take them to strange new places. Its like a giant puzzle. I know what the end result should look like I just got to get everything to fit together to get there.

My DM has a recurring character we have all take not calling "That Girl" because she is constantly fucking shit up just for the fuck of it.

She's a Paladin of Freedom, who is literally on a quest to stir up as much chaos in the world as she can, because chaotic times bring the villainous out more quickly to exploit the chaos, leading for faster resolutions.

In actuality how it works is she's a party girl who literally brews and weaponizes a alcohol, has burned down literally every tavern we have found her at, and has this bizarre habit of throwing sheds at us.

It's kind of fun though, its usually good for a laugh, and it's a good way for the DM to drop plot hooks or information on us as she wanders into our way. But at this point it is clear she is stalking our party because we are the most powerful entities around and she wants to keep an eye on us.

It's nice though, instead of a straight dungeon assault, the party ended up poisoning the morlocks during a feat to take their uranium.

Posted this in a smaller thread, re-posting here for further opinions.

We have just ended a campaign a month ago, and we're currently looking to start one up in about a month.We decided to play some 1-2 session mini adventures to pass the time and experiment.

Well, we decided to play Tomb of Horrors, D&Dnext version. 3 players and I wanted to, the 4th person, Bennet, did not. He didn't say he was against it, he just said that "meat grinder" dungeons weren't his thing. The other players semi-pleaded with him, saying that it's a legendary adventure, and they wanted to try it. I of course wanted to try it too, I was the one who reccomended it. We all know it's super lethal, we just wanted to give it a shot. Bennet then reluctantly agreed.

Last week was our first session.

Bennet and co. found the 1st false entrance, and Bennet imedeately said told the group not to go down it and to continue digging around.
I thought it odd, but whatever, his rogue is just cautious.

Then they got to the giant demon face, Bennet claims right away that no-one should touch it or stick their hand in the mouth.
Now I get it, and I'm mad.

The party gets to the fake tomb room, and Bennet's rogue immediately calls it fake and continues to look for the correct path.
The group is now rolling their eyes along with me.

Final straw: The rolling behemoth trap.
Bennet stops the group and explains that a giant roller trap is about to be sprung.
I stop the game and ask him why he would read/memorize the dungeon before hand, this was supposed to be a nail-biting "how long will they survivie, how far will they get" experience.

Bennet looks me dead in the eyes and said "Why would I play anything that I know I'd lose? I play to win or I don't play at all."

He read the whole dungeon adventure, memorized it, and ruined the experience for the group.

Is he a "That Guy"? We always have chalked his so-serious attitude as "different playstyle", but I'm so mad this time...

Not that they're inherintly the same thing, but you know how I mentioned he has a "different playstyle"?

He likes super-highpowered adventuers with tons of magic gear and such. The core DM and I (the 2ndary DM) tend to like lower-level stuff and low fantasy survivalist stuff. The others in our group are typically middle ground. He's basically the type of guy who wants his DM to be Monty Haul.

Also, he insists that he'll run us through a WoD campaign in the future, because I bought the Vampire core book on a whim. Except he won't run it until he buys Werewolf and Mage, because he wants to run "an epic campaign that has all three books involved". When we warned him that we all just want to play Vampires, and since he's a new DM he should probably just relax and take it easy with one book. He stated that he has no interest in Vampire, but he wants to make a really cool Mage DMPC. Yeah, he wants to DM a WoD campaign just so he can make a Mage, while the rest of us are vamps.

We are not looking forward to that campaign.

Eh, It's just that I if we were going to run this thing ONCE, I wanted it to be pure.

We can never get it back now.

It's in Dungeon Magazine 213.
Also, he AGREED to play it, we have a very open policy in our group, if even one person puts their foot down and says "No, I'm just not into that, lets not." Then we don't do it. After the rest of the group pleaded their case to him, he said it was fine... sure he was a bit huffy, but if he had simply said "No. I don't want to do ToH", then we would have either skipped the idea, or told him to just take a break for 2 weeks while we play it.

His "playstyle" of only playing characters or campaign settings that are really powerfull is exactly why we can't play any of the 40k RPGs... except deathwatch, which our DM and I both don't want to run high-level Deathwatch stuff.

like it or not, but in D&D and PF the cleric IS the healer class
the only others with significant party healing ability that i can think of are alchemist and paladin, with their potions and lay on hands - both have their own focuses on other things, whereas clerics are either shitting out deathbeams or shitting out lifebeams

She literally only failed against my character, but he saw what she was doing to the others in the party and thus began a long (well, like 15 sessions) history of distrust and animosity, which That Guy didn't seem to understand at all.
>"But she didn't succeed on you! Why are you upset?"
Because my character's race is deeply suspicious of mind magic, and reviles the possibility that you'd use it against your allies.
>"But my Diplomacy roll!"
What the fuck are you rolling Diplomacy against another PC, and why the fuck hasn't the GM stopped it.

Oh, and there was the time he decided that his character was the daughter of the God of the Underworld, and could, at level 5, let an ancient evil that had corrupted a god-princess inhabit her mind. And the GM let him get away with that.

That's not illegal and I had no proof he was fucking her since she was 14.

Also I worked with his son-in-law who was 6'11" and was known to be a hell of a bare-knuckle brawler. I didn't know his feelings on the matter and valued my teeth and use of my limbs.

No, alcohol DOES NOT make your personality flip 180 degrees. It removes some inhibitors.
Anything that you do and say when you're drunk is a reflection of who you are on the inside and the morals you have.

You cheat on someone while drunk? No, it wasn't the fucking alcohol: you're a slut and don't value the relationship

You try to rape someone while drunk? You're obviously a pig and only don't do it while sober because you can still remember the consequences

My That Guy met a girl and invited her to our gaming club. She was (and is still) awesome. She also happens to be a huge lesbian.

That Guy was super creepy with her from the start but she didn't seem to notice. Lots of unnecessary contact, always hovering around her awkwardly, sometimes just standing behind her watching while she played.

As soon as she started coming, I started getting messages from his online buddies asking me to confirm if he had a kinky friends-with-benefits deal with this girl and her girlfriend. I didn't know the girls very well at that point so for all I knew it might have been true, so I refused to comment.

Fast forward a few months and this girl is totally sick of That Guy; she's finally cottoned on that he's not just an awkward guy trying to be friendly, and she heard him shit-talking her to the rest of the group.

It turns out that That Guy got jealous that this girl was talking to other people and started insulting / spreading rumours about her when he figured she wasn't giving him enough attention. I guess he thought that if everyone hated her then she'd have to spend time with only him. It just made everyone hate him, and it's destroyed our local card game scene because he was the host and nobody wants to go game with him. No surprise the 'friends with benefits' lesbian threesome thing is just a lot of bullshit he's been feeding his friends.

So now I'm in this awkward position where this girl feels really betrayed and is already super upset, but I know that it's even worse than she thinks and I don't know if I should tell her about all the horrible made up bullshit he's been spreading to his OTHER mates about her and her girlfriend.

Yeah, he likes his video games. Though I don't understand this mentality, even though it's obviously the cause of it. Surely there are loads of team-game video games where teamwork is essential to victory? I can't imagine him playing COD and shooting his teammates for kicks, yet that's what he'll do in D&D.

Maybe you're right, maybe we just re-enforce the fact that it's a communal game, rather than "first to the finish line", though we've told him all this when he's been doing his That Guy behaviour.

He's also the kinda guy that fudges his rolls (if something is 6d4' he'll roll the d4 until he lands a 4 then multiply, e.g. 1+2+1+4x3), "misremembers" spell limitations and gets pissy if he takes any damage.

He was alright the previous sessions, albeit being a murderhobo, but I'm starting to loose hope that he's salvageable. I think he just plays D&D to hang around with us, rather than enjoying the actual game beyond letting off steam stabbing things.

We're taking a week break anyway because a few players are on holiday, so hopefully enough time will have passed that we can talk to him objectively in a fortnight without it being too much of an open wound.

He was a very quiet, smug voiced guy who thought of himself as being like a vulcan. Fucking intelligent, no argument about that, but was also a total asshole about it, and had exactly zero social grace.

When I saw him around campus after taking a break from running games (forever GM), he said "oh, Anon, I'm surprised to see you. I'd figured if any of our friends had dropped out by now it would definitely be you." No hint of humor or insult, he literally just said exactly what was on his mind.

That Guy 1 was just a general jackass. When we said "sure, proxies are fine for casual" he proxied up vintage decks, whenever he lost a game he called the other guy's deck OP or demanded the card he lost to be banned because it was "broken", if he got attacked or targeted at all in multiplayer he bitched about being unfairly singled out, when we ordered food he always tried to shirk his share of the bill, played the race card if somebody said "No I'm not playing with you", etc.

In Magic, it's desirable to draw a fairly even mix of land cards and non-land cards. Mana Weaving attempts to prevent clumps by deliberately spacing your lands out throughout the deck before shuffling. If it works, it's cheating and if it doesn't work it's a waste of time. He rants on and on about how you're doomed to lose if you don't mana weave, and is so dedicated to it that he'll mana weave YOUR deck. And in the process he'll see all your cards and know what you're playing, which is an unfair advantage. Next time I see him pull that against me, I'm just going to go through his deck and clump all his land cards on top and all the non-land cards on bottom before shuffling it. See how he likes it when the shoe's on the other foot.

I ran an Avatar D20 game for a group once. It's a semi-popular 3.5 homebrew that's somewhere out there on the internet, and bending rules are not unlike psionics in how they're handled (but they actually work).

Everyone had a great time and loved it, they were essentially an elite group of benders sent to cross the continent in a time of war and assassinate a prominent general. But midway through the adventure, we get That Girl.

She's a giggly ham planet who heard we were using 3.5 rules, ignored the setting when I tried to explain it, and started begging to be a tattooed monk. I shrugged and said whatever, cause it sounded like something that would fit into the Avatar world, I really didn't care.

She sits with the group and the moment I leave the room to go get a sammich, I can hear her shrill voice giggling and telling the group how she tricked me into letting her play a broken class, and how abusable it was, and jokingly apologizing in advance in that way assholes who want recognition apologize.

Every time she'd do a maneuver or some weird trick, she'd pause for applause or comments while looking around at the group, who were thoroughly unimpressed due to being a bunch of kung fu wizards. And she was surprised and upset when an earthbender soldier trapped her in stone, and was asking how a soldier could cast spells (she was the only monk I've ever seen consistently fail saves).

It was literally like watching a fighter try to show off to a group of mystic theurges.
