Got this one player.
In Pathfinder, his character meets the Lady of a small island, basically a city state. She's a widow, has problems with local monsters. PCs defeat monsters, save Lady. She sees the opportunity to ally with some powerful strangers, offers to marry one of the PCs, any one. This guy steps forward, the wedding is great, he's the new local Lord. Huzzah.
Same player, Modern day setting. Meets vice-president of 'everything but shoes' inc. Her dad owns the place, so she is essentially 21st century Princess. He manages to score a date, then plays the same 'How can I serve you, M'lady' shit that worked in Pathfinder. Shot down with extreme prejudice, blames GM (me).

Two of my male players wrote slightly romantic shipping for two characters they played with non-graphic implication that they had sex. Thing is, it's not even offensive I just feel very odd about it, because one of them write fanfics and other one is just very passionate about character development.
Real kicker is that they both are very straight dudes, have female partners and we live in Russia, for fuck sake.

Everyone fantasizes about various relationships, not just their most ideal ones. The only people who don't are those who are entwined in true love, or the closest thing to it anyway, and therefore cannot even think to consider their love manifesting another way.

The thing about it in gaming is that for the most part people either keep it to themselves or a bit of their loneliness or fantasy, or both, slips out at the table and they will flirt with the idea of relationships experienced vicariously through their own character.

Being straight, a writer, being passionate about character development -- those have nothing to do with anything. It's just about getting to live some of the fantasy we all have in the privacy of our minds.

Wew lad

As for the statistics about living longer and being healthier/happier, these statistics are VERY dishonest. They only look at married men. This means that all other men are in the "unmarried" category. That includes divorcees. So you're efffectively selecting for only happy marriages and saying that .... happily married people are happier.

Now if you split men in the "never married" and "has been married" category, don't be surprised if the life expectancy of the latter category suddenly drops.

d&d (and 5e in particular) doesn't have a lot of specific mechanics for roleplaying because mechanics actively hinder roleplaying and turn it into a weird clunky slog of "social combat" and it's dumb. roleplaying works better w/ dm fiat, and the deception/insight/persuasion/performance skills are there to ease that along

Of course DnD doesn't stop or prevent roleplaying. System has very little do with it. The fact remains, though, that people who play DnD are much more likely to be content rolling dice to hit orcs and play a wargame rather than get engaged in roleplaying. If you compare how much roleplaying is in an average party of 5e players vs a group of people playing L5R or Changeling: the Lost, I think the difference is obvious.

i think that's pretty subjective. most of the people i know who play 5e got into it through the adventure zone, cr, friends at the table, etc etc and play it specifically for the roleplaying. even had some people dip out of groups when the games were too focused on combat and survival and didn't have any real opportunities to engage w/ storylines in a meaningful way

That's explicitly NOT how you're supposed to play L5R though?
You can't just say "I do thing, using my best attribute"
You're supposed to describe what you're doing (or failing that, how you're doing it) then the DM adjudicates which ring that act would apply to.
Then you roll, and depending on successes and strife it's rarely ever a straightforward "you succeed at no consequence".
That's how it's ideally played, if I'm understanding the system.

You're the one acting like a child, you can't accept the flaws in the systems you enjoy. Of them, AD&D and HERO are the worst offenders, AD&D has all the failings of old editions of D&D and D&D in general such as being terrible if you want a story beyond "kill shit get money repeat". You can do it but it takes so much houseruling or ignoring of the core rulebook you might as well play something better suited to roleplaying and player-guided narrative. HERO is as I said a bloated mess with options for the sake of options (which is a problem older editions of D&D - particularly 3.5 - had). The skill list is full of shit that could be rolled together and it has stats that could easily be derived instead.

I don't hardly play anything that's been officially published, and I hate traditional fantasy as a genre. Generic, catch-all systems (i.e. GURPS) have never once played well in my experience.

For years I basically played asexual characters who were pretty no nonsense about reaching their goals. Past couple of years started actually romancing npcs en shit. Honestly makes for a better experience. Don't be pussies my dm is my bro and I don't let that stop me

That was an awkward experience. Especially since the GM was clearly inexperienced with romance outside of television and media. Shame I can't tell the story since I know he uses /tg/

I get you man. I don't have much experience in romance either but it felt a little rushed on my end and a bit like fan fiction which considering he admits to taking inspiration for Critical Roll I can see. But god bless his little heart though and I guess it could be argued that the NPC was a little mentally unwell seeing the events that happened to her in the game and me being the only other PC that actively went out of their way to make them feel better.

HIERO is a universal system, and I'm well aware of that, which is just another nail in the coffin for it. I'm in 6 games right now, two of which I run, none of which are your shit systems or any edition of D&D.

Related to OP:
As a mature player, how do you deal with an immature GM?

>> No.73895746

>>73895641
I'm a greybeard and my kids all play.
If you are playing where the GM is younger or flat-out immature, you need to stay in their zone as you can while still having fun.
They are uncomfortable with romance? Be very subtle about it, or give it a miss until they grow up a bit.
They are really obsessive about RAW/their own houserules/edition wars = focus on having fun for now and, again, wait for a bit of maturity.
My threshold for people under 20 is much greater than people over it, of course.

I thought prison gays were just men that fuck men because they can't get a woman.

assuming that's 200 million adults overall, that'd be about 9 million adults identifying as LGBT, or roughly one NYC of gays
that's nowhere near the 191 million of straights, but I'd be hesitant to say it's uncommon
we also have to remember that many people are straight up in denial of their LGBT proclivities, like the guy who's obviously checking out everybody's dick in the gym showers, but then immediately claims he loves pussy
