Come and let out some steam. When did a tha/tg/uy or tha/tg/m really rustle your jimmies? Give me your worst.

I'll start with a case I need to get off my chest. The story of the only person I've ever kicked out of my group, and how he nearly made me lose my self-control.

> Me, the foreverGM of 6+ years in our group, running a homebrew game and setting (steam/diesel-fantasy) for the past two years
> Group mostly consists of friends, overall great in general
> Our secondary GM, a wholehearted roleplayer, goes really deep into his characters
> Secondary GM's girlfriend, rather shy but learning to act out better IC, breaks /tg/ stereotypes and never causes any trouble
> Our occasional drawfag, has more great character ideas than there's time for him to use them - often ends up switching character due to this
> Our smar/tg/uy (a member of mensa), always taking notes and theorizing about the game's direction, expresses in-depth interest towards the game setting
> Our current host, a chill dude with mostly vidya-inspired characters, but well integrated into the setting and always passed through me.
> Most recent addition to our group, my brother, who joined out of curiosity, as he prefers WW-era and modern rpgs. Legit roleplayer, but tricked me into letting him play a TV-character rip-off. It actually has turned out OK.
> Occasional long-distance player through Skype and roll20, interacting is somewhat awkward but a great roleplayer with original character ideas.
> Then, the antagonist of my story... Let's call him Mark.

> Mark, the Tha/tg/uy. The guy who used to host our sessions, and our Warhammer games (both 40K and FB). The guy who brought collective munchies. The guy who always loved my game and setting, was eager to play and continue the story.

> Regardless of these redeeming qualities, he succeeds at being the epitome of a tha/tg/uy, one thing he has succeeded better at than anything else. His qualities include, but are not limited to:

> Large size, accompanied by poor hygiene and BO.
> In his 30's and still lives at parents' place, never been in a relationship. Can't interact normally with the group's girls, super awkward pervy jokes and ideas during the game.
> Whiteknight and SJW, unless we're talking religions, which brings us to...
> ...fedora-tipping level atheism.
> Is a brony, awkward attempts at spreading "the magic of friendship", while the secondary GM's gf is the only other group member watching the show.
> A really poor roleplayer, losing interest in the game almost as soon as anything directly involving his character was over, which he just waved anyway out of combat
> Spent time watching anime/videos on his phone, or designing his own wargame, his own totally not-WHFB. (God forgive, he's now considering making his own RPG based on his not-WHFB world too, and wants to GM D&D.)
> Generally talking off-topic and not paying attention while other's were roleplaying, once even going to sleep on a mattress in the middle of combat - and his turn was coming right up.
> Brings up politics and religion often during conversations, causing unneeded discomfort and shame with his ignorant and outright stupid arguments.
> All character-ideas are poor attempts at being "cool" and "original", most often not even fitting the setting I've provided him info about. The worst one probably was something along the following lines "the sole survivor of an alien race that crash-landed on Earth, that looks like a bright-colored pony that talks and walks on two legs..."

> Has a history of disagreements and similiar behavior under the secondary GM, to the point where he ended up kicking Mark out of his own campaign. Mark is still pissy about it, even though it was his own fault, as he couldn't take a hint even back then
> Plays Bretonnia in WHFB, complains how underpowered they are, and has sold away all his other armies.
> Plays Tau, Eldar and Iron Hands in 40K, claims that Tau (especially riptides, every time a new "top cheese" unit" appears) aren't even that good, due to his immense experience of tournaments. And we're talking casual games.
> Has played since 3rd edition, still can't play for damn, thinks that my BA are broken good, and doesn't take advice due to "wanting play in his own style". Has a huge boner for LoW-choices.
> Non-rp /tg/-related points are also relevant because he actively brings them up too in conversations during the sessions, and won't shut up about them

If I would fear that a tha/tg/uy would peruse /tg/ and see my storytime regarding him, I would cover my shit up and stay as anonymous as possible. Luckily Mark isn't a fa/tg/uy.

>>41931079
Man, scerew that guy. Luckily you get to choose your game company, at least somewhat. The only FLGS in my area closed it's doors forever last winter. Now there's even fewer active Warhams-players, and the only host in the area is Mark, since I don't count in the one sub-par condition table and terrains at my parents' place.
Though I did get most of it off of Mark at a steal price (10€ for the 6'x4' table, terrain was free).

He did apologize to the whole and even wrote an apology letter. If he was sincere, that should count for something.

I would be willing to give him another chance in the group. The thing is, those three who really wanted him out, have made it clear that they just can't stand playing with him anymore. And bluntly put, the group has been much more integrated, with no underlying tones of feuding. Also, a 3-to-1 change would hardly be worth it anyway.

At least Mark still has the D&D group ran by a wholly another GM, the player base basically consisting of him and the three players who stood neutral in his case, and as of late, me. D&D as a more combat-oriented game seems to fit him better, though it's not reinforcing his roleplaying skills really.

Though, he's made a request that I'd run some games with my system (which he reeeally loves) for the smaller group where he's playing. I just might do it, because I could introduce my system to the GM of the group. And like you said, he DID apologize, and probably really meant it.

>>41935172
I know that it would have been all the better story had he sperged out at the kick-out note, making me snap too. Some players thought that it would have been interesting to see it actually happen, nobody never having me seen really angry at anyone.

Just as I said to them, sorry to disappoint you.

I think you did the right thing.
Give him some time to develop on his own and bring up the opportunity in a few months with the other players (Don't contact him unless the response is positive).
If they say no, the answer is no, but if they say yes, give him another chance.

>> No.41935781

>>41935287
It comes down to a one-person charity case or three friends, and as you note, it's working better without him.

It's sad - HE'S sad - but triage is a reality of roleplaying games. Don't hurt your group to give him another chance to grow; that's on him, ultimately, and it's not worth dragging down others to toss him a lifeline.

Running throwaways for him is fine, but don't bring him back. Even if the three against are willing to trust you, the bad feelings are probably going to remain and get agitated every time he slips, and that's just no way to be.

I honestly don't understand why you could fear that.
If you have a problem with somebody, take them aside, IM them, call them (ie. communicate in a somewhat private setting) and tell them. If they're good people or smart, they'll probably understand your problem and try to reach some sort of compromise or understanding. If they are not, why give a fuck? Tell them your problem, kick them if neccessary.
Any way, the only problem is them reading your making fun of them to strangers. Which is, of course, not the most decent thing, but again: If they did something worth telling, they ain't better.

tl;dr talk to them. Reach understanding or fuck 'em.

Gather round ye fa/tg/guys and ca/tg/girls, I've a tale of RP gone wrong.

I joined this 5e game on Roll20 and at first it seemed great. The world was fleshed out, the DM was helpful in making my character since I'd never played 5e before, he even helped me make a custom archetype for my rogue. Nothing super fancy, from the moment I saw the "Investigation" skill I wanted to make a Private Investigator Rogue. The archetype gave me bonuses to investigate, insight, some other small bonuses. Helped me make a backstory where my PC was the Sherlock Holmes of his home city. Not super LG, but more likely to follow the law than not, especially when in lands controlled by his King or other such civilized places.

The party has been assembled by a demigod to investigate "something." He doesn't know what's going on, but all the cults are up to something at the same time, old gods are stirring, etc. We've been assembled to gather ancient artifacts, basically stockpiling magic for whatever is about to go down. I joined in a few sessions in, so my character was introduced as reinforcements sent by said demigod to replace PCs who went their own way. (I was told the players were actively working against the group or just not playing along well and had been asked to leave, plus another one or two who had just stopped showing up.)

Said demigod had a mansion in a pocket dimension which was our homebase between missions; we each had a suite of rooms, and you could only get to this place through a magic circle that required a set of coordinates. Seemed incredibly safe. Of course that only lasts for so long because this is a PnP game.

Pic is PC in his fancy aristocrat clothing

>> No.41938240

>>41938041
I almost feel like it spoils the story, but I feel compelled to tell you that three of the other players were personal, IRL friends of the DM. Disregard this until later.

One of the other PCs is a notorious bounty hunter/contract killer who has little patience for people. Not someone a law abiding PI would normally associate with, but the world might be coming to an end so we make exceptions, right? This guy repeatedly demonstrates his joy of killing, going so far as to hang the heads of slain enemies from his belt. He plans on keeping the heads and boiling the meat off of them so he can collect the skulls. My point being, he's a dangerous psychopath. He also has a sword/dagger combo he fights with as a Ranger, which he inherited from his father. They're important to him.

Shit happens, we're the only two to make it out of a dungeon. Soon after we end up being picked up by some guys. Since my first action upon joining this group was to go help bust this guy out of jail I'm pretty concerned we're on our way to jail, but instead they bring us to Someone Important. She asks us what we've been doing in town, and I use all my smarmy aristocrat charm (despite being in my underworld incognito clothes) to deflect her questions. We retrieved an Artifact while down there and while I'm not sure what it does I'm pretty sure boss would be mad if we go blabbing to everyone what we're up to.

Contract Killer of course tells her all about how we went down looking for artifacts, and attempts to show her the stone. The stone happens to be in the pocket of our dead ally, whose body we shoved into a Bag of Holding so we could res her, and the player forgot. So he's searching through his bag for it with the DM telling him he can't find it. He ends up partially dumping the bag out, causing a dead body and many severed heads to roll out onto the floor... as well as a magic bard instrument we'd retrieved. I snatch it up and show her "the artifact."

Damn, forgot the pic.

Someone Important looks a little green at all the severed heads and what looks to be an only partially dressed dragonborn woman coming out of this savage dragonborn's BoH, but turns to me presenting the instrument and smiles faintly. "That's some artifact." I nod solemnly, glad I have a high ass bluff. I'm ready for us to bid her farewell and be on our way, even inviting her to my home for entertainment some time, when the contract killer, hereby known as CK, opens up his mouth.

Cutting it short, he blurts out we were here under orders by the demigod. She clearly knows who we are talking about, and thanks us for the information. CK asks for payment since she found the information so informative, and I groan thinking we're about to get locked in a basement. To our surprise she pays us, saying it's a drop in the ocean for her. Well then.

We take our wealth and scatter to the winds for a week in-game. When we tune back in the session is beginning at dinner. The DM asks us what we bring to dinner. Clearly something is going to happen at this dinner. He's hinted at it during the week, and asking that is a tip-off. I sigh and say "Just my magic stuff that needs attunement. Why would I bring all my gear and weapons to dinner in this place that's in another dimension and has been safe for more than a month in-game?" He agrees with my logic and we continue. Lo and behold baddies teleport into the middle of dinner. Dinner consisted of me, CK, and two NPC groups. One was super high level, another was a couple levels ahead of us but nowhere near the bad guys' level. One of the bad guys is a lich, who throws a spell of some kind. DM does some rolls, has me roll a d100. I get hit, knocking me into the low teens for health.

Demigod looks at them grimly, looks to us, and suddenly screeches "Run!" before exploding into light. We take advantage of a sun appearing in the room and run the fuck away.

This... is where things go poorly for me. I forgot to mention this, but CK was late. He ended up not showing up until roughly 45 minutes into the session. You'll... *sigh* You will know when he gets into the game.

As I said, I left all my shit in my room. It is not on the way to the teleporting room. How unfortunate. So I'm running with not even a dagger on me, just magic Glamour armor, magic brass knuckles, an Ion Stone, and the Artifact which happens to summon an Earth Elemental. The elemental can change size without changing stats, I have a psychic link with it so I control it on its turn, and the stone also let's me cast Shape Stone as many times as I like. Pretty badass Artifact, but not 100% useful atm. I did summon the elemental and send it to my room to fetch my shit, but that didn't work of course. Bugger everything.

So CK and I are running down the hallway, and the slightly higher level group of npcs is running behind us when one of the bad fuckers steps out of thin air between us. Npc group skids to a halt, and I go oh fuck, I need to distract this bitch.
"Hey, CK is running next to me, right?"
>Yeah, sure. Slightly ahead of you maybe.
"Ok. I grab a random dagger off his belt and throw it at her to distract her."
>Sure, give me a roll.

By some miracle I hit her. Yay- oh it went through her and suddenly I took the damage? Well that sucks. Almost as much as having a whole 5 health left does. I hope I don't sneeze too hard or trip and slam into a wall. Anyway, what the DM didn't tell me is that while CK should have had multiple daggers on him because he'd looted some and Rangers start out with multiple daggers, CK's player neglected to fill this in on his sheet. The DM could only find one fucking dagger on him. The one he inherited. Again, CK's player wasn't here, so he couldn't stop this and the DM let it happen without warning me. I wasn't aware of this until after I'd thrown it. Fuckin great.

We finally make it to the teleport room with the guy who casts the spell asking us what the hell is going on, why is the mansion shaking, HOW does a mansion not in a real dimension shake, etc. "Shut the fuck up and teleport us. Make sure you get my horses and dogs, too." He manages to cast the spell just as that bitch steps out of nothing and cuts his head off. I guess having your head detached from your body makes your concentration waver, because instead of putting us in my home city we end up at a circle that's overgrown by a dirt path.

Player (DM's second friend) who died in the dungeon's new PC walks up, turns out she's a ditzy hippie. Also turns out my animals were teleported into weird places. The horses are fine, but one dog is in a tree and the other is under ground. She ends up following us because she thinks I mistreat my animals or something, whatever, it's a reason for her to stick with the group. Now that we're not about to die CK, played by the DM quite well I'd say, grabs me and shoves me against a tree asking why he shouldn't kill me right now for losing his dagger. I point out whoever just assaulted a fucking pocket dimension is probably after us as well, and I tell him that I lost way more shit than he did and I plan on going to get it back. First we get back to my home city, gear up, have the guy who runs the portal there send us back, and retrieve our shit. Not the best plan, but I wanted my shit back bad.

We follow the path to a nearby town where we pick up the rest of the new PCs. One of them is my personal friend who I brought into the game to fill our roster, one of them is a random off Roll20, the last is the DM's third friend who made a character who is a part of the world's elite and notorious assassin guild. Go figure. It's about this time CK's player arrives. His exact fucking words, "I had a bad day at work today, I hope none of you fuckers piss off CK. I'm sorry if you do, cuz you're probably dead."

Cue nervous laughter from everyone.
"What?"
>DM tells him.
"Well, I'm sorry dude. Hope you have a second character rolled up." Did not sound sorry. I did not.

He goes super aggro on me, slamming me into a table suddenly. I have my magic brass knuckles but I don't want to get into a fight when I have less than 10 health. I summon an elemental at max size and order it to restrain him while I talk sense into him/run away screaming. I manage to squeak out of the fight with 2 health left, with the echo of him screaming about me getting his dagger back right now bouncing around my skull. All my money was with my shit (I asked the DM this time and he decreed I had no money) so I went looking around for lucrative jobs I could use to buy my way back home. Found a guy who could open a portal for 500g, the best paying gig atm was a caravan guard for 5g. Wellp.

It was about this time that CK and CK's assassin bro came over and get us. "We've got a job, you're coming with us. Shut up and do it." Despite the bard being helpful and giving me some HP I still don't want to get into it, and there's nothing for me to gain here anyway so I go with him. Assassin Bro, AB from now on, has a gig in the nearby city of mages. CK has just been invited to join AB's association and is helping him with the gig. There's a portal set up so we'll be dropped off nearby. Side note: The town we're in is the staging ground for several of the area's clans to form a joint army to assault the city we're going to for reasons.

So we get to the city, and CK uses me as a cover to get inside the city. Despite CK and AB being incredibly obtuse to the guards and filling out their paperwork absurdly, we're allowed into the city. Once inside I find a stable for my animals. While in the stable CK harasses me some more, with more promises to kill my ass soon. He wrote down he was my retainer, so he kicks me out of the stable and does it himself to keep up appearances.

I hope people are enjoying this, I realize it's a lot more detail and story time than these threads usually are but I have a hard time not being a writefag.

Right, so I join the group outside and we wait on him. CK is a green dragonborn. CK comes out of the stables a red dragonborn. I whisper the DM and ask if he's dripping wet and he has me roll him a perception. Yeah, he's dripping wet. Fuck. So we get to a council thing or something and wait awhile before a council of mages comes out to see us. We tell them of the impending attack, but they don't believe us. Who would attack the city of mages? They're fucking mages. It's never happened before, it'll never happen now. I found out from sleuthing the city was to be attacked because they were harboring a mage (they had a sanctuary law for all magic users) who had caused the farmlands of those clans to die from a botched spell of some kind. I asked if they had some spare paper for me, I could sketch them out the key people who were talking as well as some angelic person who came to tell the clans to knock it off, but the clans told her it had nothing to do with her group and to fuck off.

So I explain this to the council, and I sketch the people I'm discussing perfectly (Investigator Archetype feature. I used the shit out of that.) and they grudgingly believe us. But are still not worried because they can repel any attack. At this point the hippie speaks up, giving a speech about how as the leaders it's their job to protect the lives of everyone in the city and they shouldn't be so nonchalant.

While she blabbers I scribble a note in the book I was given, something along the lines of "Those two fuckers are hired assassins here to kill someone, and have repeatedly threatened to kill me. Please help." I pass the book up to the guy with the pencil as a bookmark. He opens it, reads it, and says, "So, which one of you is the hired killer?"

They could probably hear my facepalm over my mic.

But the point is, I'm not sure if he has what it takes to be a GM for real. He has a lot of conviction, but I don't know would his players have enough conviction to stand him as the GM.

Nah, I was playing a PI and that was my image for him in rough, street-level clothes.

Mmk, let's get a recap going.
Contract Killer (CK) is crazy.
Assassin Bro (AB) is an assassin. Also crazy.
Hippie is a hippie.
Those three are all personal, IRL friends of the GM.
In a desperate bid to save some npcs I pulled a dagger off CK's belt and chucked it at a bbeg. It was his priceless family heirloom.
I've been told multiple times IC and warned OoC that CK is going to kill me.
AB has a contract that he's brought CK in on, and the rest of have been dragged along to a mage city.
Said mage city is ruled by a council of powahful wizzerds. Any magic users can seek sanctuary in this city, regardless of what crime they've committed.
A few members of the party have enough of a conscience that we decide to tell said council they're about to be attacked. They wave it off.
I decide to take this opportunity to maybe save my ass. I am subtle as a mother fucker, I'd say, but it does me little good.

The great and powerful apparent Necromancer faction of the council looks up from my plee to save my life and asks, "So, which one of you is the hired killer?"

AB looks up, bored. "I am."
>Oh, we know you are. We knew the moment you entered the city. Who is the other one?
CK looks at AB, looks at Necrofucker, then shrugs and says, "Me."
AB asks, "How did you know?"
>Those cards you filled in at customs? They magically correct whatever you write to be the truth.
"So are you going to stop us?"
>No.
One of our other players, who happens to be playing something interesting revolving around his sword (more on that later) speaks up. "So, are you going to do anything about the attack?"
>No. We can handle whatever they can do.
I speak up because I'm stupid I guess. "No one has attacked you before, right?"
>That is correct.
"Because they fear your ability to rain fireballs on their heads, right?"
>Yes. We have hundreds of mages in this city, any attack would fail.
"So don't you think they've probably got a way to negate the magic?"
>lolno they're stupid country hicks
I kind of tuned out at that point for some reason.

So we tried. And failed. At least we tried. At this point CK and AB go off on a magical friendship adventure I guess, doing so privately. I go looking for someone to portal me home so I can attempt to gear up and assault the mansion for my shit. And his dagger. We find a guy who will do it for cheap, and I'm able to bum some money off another player which I'll return when we get to my place. Go figure, the portal spell suddenly takes half an hour to get ready. Weird how that works.

I'm still curious how the armies actually planned on attacking. I'm guessing pic related.

Still boggles my mind how the protectors of the city, those who offer sanctuary to any magic users, are completely ok with hired killers who are on assignment in the city to wander around killing people.

So we're chillin in the magic shop, waiting for the spell to finish, when CK and AB come back and grab the hippie. They ask her for help with their target. She says sure, what do they need her to do?

"We need you to distract him with your feminine wiles so we can kill him."
"Ok."
>wat
"But in return you help me get that stone the guy has."
>double wat
"Ok, sure. I've been planning on killing him anyway."
>Woah, hold on, first off how is the hippie who begged and cried for the city to take the imminent attack seriously because the thought of people dying was too much for her, how is that woman ok with helping to murder someone? And how does she even know I have the artifact? I've never taken it out of my pocket.
It actually just occurred to me, even CK shouldn't have known I had it. I mean sure, he was with us when we retrieved it but we had no idea what it did until I went to our resident good lich and he helped me figure it out. So, yeah. Meta as fuck, right?
"Hey, you're not part of this conversation. Quit meta-gaming."
>I'm pointing out how I'm being metaed against, and that's where to draw the line?
"Guess we'll take this to a private room. Be right back."

We'd been using a voice system that allowed you to create individual rooms in the channel, and they went to a private one to continue that mess. So the three of them leave, murder the shit out of some old shop-keep, and come back. The portal's ready now! Go figure! So we're getting ready to go, when CK speaks up.

CK "Look, we can both go, you and me, and go check on them."
>So you can kill me when we're alone. Ok.

At this point other player joins in, says let's all go and check on the animals together. CK and AB say sure, let's all leave our weapons here as a show of good faith. Sword guy agrees and plants his sword in the ground. The rest of us hum and haw and don't do it. As we're going, CK and AB say, "We'll wait here for you." Yeah, that's not obvious. Leave your weapons, we'll watch them! Ok.

We arrive at the stables, and the stablemaster is miraculously still attached to his head. Swears up and down he's never seen me or my animals before. Going inside the animals aren't there, but there is blood on the ground. Druid is utterly pissed. We race back to the shop after her, and they're gone. As is dude's sword. Shocker.

I was ok with him IC threatening to kill me because the dagger was inherited from his dad and was apparently a nice dagger. Not magical or anything, but nice. I was not ok with him actually planning on doing it though. Instead of bitching about it I resolved to do something about it IC, since that's how RP should work. No one is going to just allow themselves to be killed.

>>41951163
Anywho, we arrive at the shop and find them gone, along with dude's sword. Druid is so enraged at this point she wildshapes into a bear. A big bear. Rolls to track them and crits it, so she's off like a shot with the rest of us following her. We find them at a bar, combat ensues. AB has a flute that makes anyone who hears it Frightened of him if they fail a Wisdom save. I fail it, which is a shame. The elemental I summoned does not, which makes me giggle. He plays the flute, and then, while I can't approach him, he walks up to me.
"Give me the stone."
>Oh, I'll give you something. Thanks for moving into range. I hit him with my magic brass knuckles.
These fuckers were extremely expensive because they take my fists, which do d4 from tavern brawler, and turns them into 2d6+everything else. Both fists. Bard went right before me and hit him with a paralyzing spell of some kind, giving me advantage which canceled out the disadvantage of being frightened. Clobbered the shit out of this guy. On my elemental's turn I direct it to restrain him or gently tap him. It crits and wallops him into negatives.
Meanwhile the druid has CK on the ground. The bard was able to hit him with the paralyze spell as well since it was cast at higher spell slot, so she knocked him over, put a paw on his chest, and roared in his face. He may or may not have peed his pants.

Mmk, so the druid's got CK on the ground, AB is bleeding out, I say the plan now is to tie them up and question them, and maybe turn them in to the police since, again, hired fucking killers. Before any of us has a turn to tie AB up the druid turns back into a hippie and heals him. Well shit. His turn happens next and suddenly he's invisible. Double shit. So we question CK about the animals, and he deflects it onto again pointing out hippie helped him kill someone. Sometime during this, AB apparently steals the stone out of my pocket.

>Wait, what?
"Yeah, he stole it."
>I don't even get a perception roll?
"He's invisible."
>Invisible. Not a ghost. How's he even know what pocket it's in? *I* don't know what pocket it's in.
"But he's invisible."
>Look, I don't need to see someone to feel them grab my dick.
"Ok fine, roll."

I rolled pretty good. Good enough I thought I had it in the bag. AB rolls privately to the GM, and surprise surprise he happened to beat my high ass roll despite having no idea where I keep the stone. It's pretty late and this is a clusterfuck, so the GM says the guards have arrived outside of the bar.

>>41951384
I forgot to mention, and I found this amusing, they stole sword dude's sword. Turns out sword dude is an Eldritch Knight, so he just calmly summons his sword back and smiles at them.

>The guards are outside of the bar?
"Yeah, this was a pretty loud fight and they're outside. Some of them are starting to enter now."
>Ok. I calmly turn to them, put my hands up, and say "Thank goodness you're finally here. If you could just arrest us all I'm sure we can sort this mess out in jail. Careful, there's an invisible person around somewhere."
The bard agrees, and puts his hands up. The Eldritch Knight agrees and puts his hands up. Hippie, CK, and AB all bitch. Hippie's player says, "Dude, are you serious? This doesn't sound like a fun direction to go in." Even the DM asks if we'd prefer to run.
>Not really. I've done nothing wrong, and where can we run anyway? There's a second story sure, but we're in a city of magic users who can scry.

Game is called there, DM and his friends go back to that private room. The other two players and I discuss what just happened. I felt bad for how things turned out, but I laid out my reasons and they both agreed it was the logical thing IC and OoC for me to do. EK headed off for bed, and I went to let my dogs out. When I came back I'd been banned from the channel and removed from the game, no messages. My friend the bard had as well, again no messages.

Chummin the waters, eh?

When I arrived in the game I was sent to the town they were dicking around in to get CK out of jail. He'd been arrested because he went to the morgue to check on his handler who had been killed, and the coroners said something or he was wanted or something, I don't recall. Regardless, he killed all the coroners and a couple guards, earning him a spot in jail with an execution scheduled. It's mine and the other new player's job to get him out.

As part of my PI backstory I have a badge of office, allowing me some clout with the police. Lets me look at crime scenes, they're more trusting of me, etc. I use this to find out where he is, we hook up with the other players, and thanks to new player being a cleric of a trickster guard we're able to explain we're there to transfer CK to another, better jail. On the way out we ask for his things, and go get them. One of which is that fucking dagger. Ugh.

While there we ask the clerk if he had anything else. He's not sure, and says we'd probably know better than he. The guy with me is AB's player, playing his old character. A witch hunter or something. Fights with polearms, has the feat, etc. He sees a wicked looking polearm and grabs it. "This was his." Crit fail on the clerk's insight, and it's now ours.

Fast forward a bit, we're investigating the sewers based on rumors that shit's down there. It's why we were sent to this town by the demigod in the first place. End up fighting oozes, and he ruins his polearm pretty recklessly. I think the player wanted an excuse to use it, even though the PC is an evil hunter and knew the polearm was infernal and had some bad mojo.

As we go through the tunnel system the sewers open up onto we discover an advance outpost for Drow and fight our way through. The entire time he's using this polearm, and the entire time, unbeknownst to us, it's corrupting his mind. The will saves come faster and faster, and eventually he starts to fail some. The polearm is exacerbating the character's murderous traits, until eventually he ends up killing a pixie that was his friend and none of us outright noticed. Final boss fight comes and it's a Drow priestess/mage. She's got a portal to hell set up, and a tub of blood for something or other. We kill her, defeat the demon, and he has one more will save. Fails it spectacularly.

So he walks over and dips the polearm into the pool of blood.
>(Well that can't be good.) You ok buddy?
Silence. We divvy up the loot while he walks around doing odd things. Eventually he comes over to us, and stops in front of hippie's PC. It's a sorceress. No word, no nothing, he finishes her off since we were low health from the boss fight we just went through. Just plunges the polearm through her throat. Laughs, walks over to the portal, and hops through.
>Oh fuck.

So yeah, AB's PC killed Hippie's PC and then walked off into the hellset. It all made sense, but at the same time it happened because his character, who is against evil, used an obviously evil/cursed polearm, so that kind of makes him a That Guy, right?

Entirely possible I suppose. I wouldn't even be against that if it was done well. It's hard for GMs to keep the group on a path, so if the players are given clues about how the GM wants them to proceed that could help everyone's enjoyment.

One of the movies has her not looking like a child and with an eyepatch? Maybe I need to watch more of them.

I think I'm actually a bit of That Guy atm. A friend of mine is running a game and one of their players had to roll up a new character. In the backstory they decided to add a royal family into the already established world, of which they're a part, and the evil uncle is having assassins sent after the PC cuz reasons. My friend is pissed that a whole new faction was added and that she now has to think of how to fit in assassins coming after this PC. Which is where I come in.

I've never played this particular game before and wanted to give it a shot. Friend helped me make a character, and the next game they start up I'll be joining. Friend needed another player to fill a slot in current game while a player goes on vacation for a few weeks so I said sure, I'd join in. Friend and I were talking and I asked if there was anything I could do to make Friend's life easier. Friend joked that I could kill aforementioned PC so they didn't have to think about assassination attempts, and then thought on it and seriously asked me if I would.

>mfw I have to kill a player in a system I've never played before in such a way that the group doesn't immediately kill me for it

Or happen to 'find' notes on a ritual of some kind that turns bad/gives you a reason to put the caster down (demon summoning, necromancy, whatever's seen as bad in the setting).

Or happen to carry a healing potion and a flask of alchemist's fire/something similar close to each other (because you need to keep both close at hand, you understand). Talk it through with your GM before it happens, and make him make you roll for it.

Or go scouting and miss a trap/set up one/prepare a piece of stone to fall down/...

I can understand if someone wants to stay back in a fight with a less combat-oriented character, but outright running away? Gee. Unless the character really has a reason for that, that's just being a douche.
Unless of course we're talking about a really low-power game, where anything above the regular mook is too much for the PCs to handle. Which I don't believe has been the case here.

Having taken part to a D&D 5th ed campaign, to see where the game has gone to, this summer I know your predicament
Funny fact, Mark plays the group's main wizard
Cantrips are a fun idea to allow full-time casters, but I don't like the idea of unlimited effective damage spells that shadow even some real low-level spells. They're supposed to be minor tricks, and the damage should be accordant. Just an opinion, of course.
I have only ever played the '83 D&D and AD&D 2nd ed

Can't talk about own experiences, since there's no X-Wing players around here. Not that we'd have an FLGS either, anymore. But what I've figured out is that quite many players have migrated from Warhams to X-Wing in the late years. Might have an impact on the stereotype of the player base.
