Does flirting with a character in game make me more likely to have her fall for me in real life, or is it as pathetic and awkward as pic related?

>> No.52313170

Honestly, Its a pretty big issue to tackle.

Pretty basic answer is, don't try to seduce some one in game with the intent to seduce them in real life. It's pretty bad, even if you both are mutually doing it, it alienates the other players.

>> No.52313199

You could instead attempt to ask them to go to grab pizza or ice cream, everyone likes food. If she's not interested it's not problem.

>> No.52313244

>Does flirting with a character in game make me more likely to have her fall for me in real life
That is unlikely to work. Unless the other person is self inserting hardcore and is about as socially awkward as you.

>>52313199 would be the better play.

>>52313170 also raises a good point.

>> No.52313320

>pathetic and awkward as pic related?

Sam is a god tier roleplayer, he's playing the Cassanova desperately in love pretty well. Once he found out he has a daughter he got over his love interest fast and started acting normally with her. As for your question, no it doesn't. It's a roleplaying game, so everyone roleplays on the table. Just talk to her outside of the session. You don't shit where you eat, and you don't flirt where you roleplay.

Since you're familiar with Critical Role, good in character flirting is Sam and Pike, where it comes as hilariously pathetic and desperate and done for laughs. Bad OOC flirting posed as in character flirting is Orion/Tiberius with Marisha/Keyleth where it ended up as being creepy and resulted in Orion getting booted off.

>> No.52313353

Just ask her to hang out together some other time, OP. Don't railroad your other friends into spectating on some kind of weird quasi-date. Even if it "goes well" and she reciprocates your feelings, it's a little rude.

It's pathetic and awkward, especially if it means you can't separate reality from a fucking tabletop game.

The tragedy is that Tiberius is a unique and endearing character... Played by an obnoxious That Guy. It's a shame really, because without Orion, Tiberius Stormwind from Draconia is a cool concept and a foil to Keyleth.

One thing I'll give Orion, I wonder if he specifically pulled his surname from the fallacy of the same name, in order to stave off people claiming he powergamed which he did

Only major problem I have with Keyleth is they build alot of plans around her in stressful sessions, and they go to shit because Marisha had one too many during the break.

>> No.52314325

Short answer: No, that's a terrible idea.

Long answer:
Flirting with her in character won't necessarily work against you, but you need to make it as obvious as you can that it's all happening in the context of the game.
You don't want her thinking you're only doing this because she's the girl at the table, so make sure there's actually a fun/entertaining reason for your character to do it. You're going to need to learn to read the room (which, I'll admit is going to be difficult for any of us from this Cambodian Claymation Congregation), if the rest of the party isn't enjoying it then the odds are she's not comfortable.

If you can pull it off in a way that is enjoyable for everyone involved, then there's no reason that should work against your efforts to bone her in real life.
Girls like guys who are good at things and are fun to be around. This includes being funny. So this applies to anything you could roleplay in an entertaining way - I'd suggest playing the party leader/charismatic face. Shows you've got some level of confidence, but still gives you a chance to have fun with it.
Basicsally, flirting with her in character won't hurt your chances with her any more than other roleplaying, if done correctly. However, if you fuck it up it'll backfire.

It's more because they never, ever do more than gloss over spell descriptions - or worse; she seems more familiar with Pathfinder spells than 5e spells.

It's purposefully left ambiguous. Officially they "parted ways" on mutual terms. On Orion's personal YouTube channel, he had a video (that's now private/deleted/etc.) titled "Why I Left Critical Role." He's a professional voice actor and if it was publicly announced he was kicked from the show for being an asshole, it would hurt his career.

Most likely scenario is that he was asked to leave because he would fudge dice rolls, lie about his Sorcerer points, metagame, and generally be an unpleasant person with occasional moments of hostility towards the other players.

Could you please tell me at around what episode that happens?

>> No.52318704

Orion started to miss sessions after the episode they found the Behir next to Whitestone. 3 episodes later, Matt announced his departure. So around episodes 26-29, I believe.

>> No.52318736


His last episode is 27.

He fudges dice in way too many episodes to point out, but a memorable one is the Trial of the Take episodes.

Memorable moments of him acting like an asshole OOC is the end of the K'Varn fight. (Really, the K'Varn fight is the beginning of the end for Orion as a player in the game.)

Metagames in too many episodes to give examples of every one but memorable moments are whichever episode they discover that K'Varn is a Beholder and the episodes leading up to his departure when he prepares to fight the Briarwoods in Whitestone by trying to research Liches and buying every mirror in Emon so he can laser beam vampires for instakills.

Marisha gets that way pretty often, which either means she's that girl or she can't handle liquor that well.

True, somehow I didn't realize that. I do love the whole Don Quixote thing Taryon has going though.

I mean most of Sam's characters are pretty similar. Obby Scanlan and Taryon have pretty similar character traits when you brush off the new coat of paint he gives them each time.
Don't get me wrong, they're all pretty good, but I'd just like to see him try something new once. Something slightly more serious or grounded, maybe.

Well, interaction instead of doing nothing makes it more likely to have her fall for you you. And successful in-game flirting is positive reinforcement.
However, it's probably gonna be pathetic and ankward (as is asking 4chan about it). And some people aren't comfortable at all with roleplaying romance, but in that case you should notice it quickly.

But hey man, go for it. If it works you'll have gained a girlfriend, if it doesn't you'll have roleplayed and hopefully gone better at flirting.
