I just really felt the need to share this. This is why roll20 is a meme at this point. Most games aren't this bad, but this is an example of a no go zone. Post more no go zones, so we show new people where not to play.

I feel like Mythweavers doesn't get enough flak on here, it's just as fucking awful as Roll20. I once played a Mass Effect game where one of the players rolled up a 'male' Asari who had been genetically experimented on giving them 'super powerful biotics' and also a penis apparently. The GM thought it was the most fucking incredibly original idea he'd ever heard and wanked the guy off incessantly.

I just want to play a grizzled Krogan merc who mutters he's too old for this shit whenever they get in a firefight. Is that too much to ask?

>> No.53032132

You're going to find those players everywhere you go, Mythweavers isn't special for that.
That said, you're only telling your side of the story. Maybe it was an eloquently written character and you're just sperging out because it disagrees with your headcanon and you didn't get the spotlight. Maybe it's just as shitty a character as you say, who knows. You do sound like yet another boring "I play human fighters exclusively and shit on everything else for being speshul snowflake" player though.

>concept that disregards the lore entirely.
It doesn't, though. It specifically incorporates the fact that Asari are female only in order to make itself more speshul.

You may not like the way that it interacts with the lore, but it's certainly not disregarding it. Not that Mass Effect has worthwhile lore in the first place, but that's more an overarching issue than with this particular case of terrible characters.

Heavy Industry anon, and the Cotton Gin was easier to operate with fewer laborers. Slaves were only 'free labor' in the sense that they only cost food, shelter, and the wages of overseers.

Reducing the number of slaves in your field while increasing or keeping the same output sound good? How about being able to build railways or manufacture stuff locally instead of having to buy stuff from distant northern manufactories?

Another strategy is to play a system that's not popular.

I imagine putting GURPS as your system would be a great filter for the kind of people like OP's link.

First character was a bad attempt at being PTSD-ridden. For a kid that didn't really understand even the vague ideas of shellshock that I do now, that basically meant being over-indulgently emotional. That might've been fine, if not for the fact that he ended up being the plotpoint, the excuse for the party to get dragged off somewhere else when he started feeling bad.

I hate it, and I hate myself for it. Though literally every character I have played since then has been far, far better, it still haunts me that the first game that I played, and honestly the last game I played with more than idle friends, was such a failure because I had yet to learn that sadness does not equal character. On some level, I think it's even turned me off from trying to play normal human fighters again because of how badly I fucked up.

My history prof had a saying that went.

"When you start off in school, they tell you that the American Civil War was about slavery. Then you get to college and find out, no, it was a bout economics and industrialization and states rights. And then you go into graduate school and you spend thirty years reading primary reference documents in cold archives and looking at battlefields and you discover that it really was about slavery after all."

So you aren't wrong, it's like saying that the movement that became white evangelicalism in the 60s formed as a reaction to sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

Well basically it was about only upholding the ideals of the founding fathers at first, with economic issues in the background, then the slavery part got thrust into the foreground. So it was kind of both, among a bunch of other things.

Basically if it sounds simple, it's not. Though it could also be what people at the time thought it was, like how late medieval people viewed the various wars going on as things of passion and honor rather than understanding the economics and politics behind them. History can get so dry it forgets the element of human error and perspective.

When I was sixteen I played a Chevalier whose wife died and was trying to do everything possible to bring her back to the living world. He suffered a mental breakdown when he realized that he was being strung along and then fell to an evil alignment as he began to use unholy means to resurrect her.

Long story short and several human sacrifices later, he succeeded, but she immediately killed herself upon seeing what her husband had degenerated into and used special means to prevent a future resurrection. My character then left the group after finally losing it all and probably became a wraith or something.

Actually, the founding fathers ideals thing was more complex than that - the North saw themselves as upholding it because they wanted to maintain the Union, while the South saw it as fighting against tyranny as their forefathers did. So both saw themselves as keeping with the ideals of the past.

Slavery had been hotly debated before the war, but it wasn't the same hot button issue in the early years of it. It's not as if every slave-owning state seceded (several 'border states' stayed with the Union), and remember the South seceded because of Lincoln's election. The concern about slave states or not slave states was more a concern about lack of representation in the government by both sides.
