    68 KB My Local D&D:encounters Group Has a Pussy Anonymous 09/26/10(Sun)13:31 No.12231166  
    There is one person at my group who has whined a few times about how much he hates fourth edition because he can't heal without healing surges. The rest of the group is in very good shape despite the next encounter being the fifth that adventuring day. He chose the pre-generated sorcerer.

    The man is an idiot. Not only did he hit allies with area attacks, and tried to do so while they were away from the table, he managed to lose all of his surges and all but 7 of his hit points, all the while saying "this is why I hate fourth edition."

    Which of the following plans do you think will be the best method to antagonize him?

    * Give an in-character speech about how my warlord has seen people without his wicked powers survive much worse and that cursing the world for his incompetence is pathetic.
    * Instruct a friend to ignore him for the purpose of area attacks. If he complains, tell him he didn't have a problem endangering others, so the tactician will treat him as disposable.
    * Allow him to die to his own incompetence, then humiliate his body.

    While I agree with him that 4th sucks, I would just not play. As he chose to play, and appears to suck at gaming anyway, you should fuck with him as much as possible.
    >> Knight of our Black Annaiys 09/26/10(Sun)13:48 No.12231331

    >Not passive-aggressive

    Your ideas were:

    1. Give a stupid, smug fucking flowery in-character speech.
    >What are you, fucking 15?

    2. Scheming with another player to turn one of the D-bag's offenses back on him and then shrug, no doubt with a 100% punchable, shit-eating grin, and claim that "Hey, you did it to me."
    >What are you, fucking 10?

    3. Let him die then poop on his body, hurrhurr.
    >What are you, fucking 5? And autistic?

    Cut the shit, you pimply, faggot, there's a reason you can only get a gaming group with people as bad as this guy.

    You're just as bad.

    I'm going to second that the first idea is a great on on the principle of roleplaying and such. It'll handle thje in-character side of things. And it's an amusing way to gainsay his OOC bitching about the game, by treating it as IC. This is not at all a bad way to handle this sort of thing, as putting some in-game consequences to certain kinds of player behavior can work.

    beyond that, I do suggest at least some talking to him OOC, as the issue is mostly an out-of-character one in which this guy is bitching for the sake of bitching. It'll reinforce any in-game yelling at him for his shortcomings and that if he wants to stay alive, he would do well to get a better sense of tactics and such. Basically, say it OOC too so he knows you're upset with him in general. And you can add stuff like asking him why he's playing a game he so vocally dislikes. My group kind of kicked a guy out from any games with certain systems because he wouldn't stop griping about said system during play.

    I feel your pain. We got a guy that brings his kid with him to the encounters and they both suck. The dude plays a sorceror and at least stays in the back, he just doesn't get team work at all. The kid plays a fighter or paladin I forget which because he apparently took a level of corpse. As the healer I tried to keep him on his feet, but quickly decided to keep the more valuable players alive instead.

    "I'm charging this guy!"
    "But you'll take two OA's if you do and you only have 7 hp left..."
    "Don't worry, it'll be FUN!"

    Also, he forgot to equip armor.

    I want to lay into him, but he is just a kid and doesn't listen anyways.

    Ya know, it's not really about being "super witty", it's a simple fact that you're just as much of a douche-bag as him if you purposely antagonize him for no reason. Everyone hates trolls, and being a troll is exactly what the OP is proposing.

    So, don't feed the troll, do it right and call the troll a cunt and tell him to man the fuck up and just tell the douche to go away.

    Speaking of which... OP, stop being a god damn cunt and man the fuck up and just tell the douche to go the hell away.

    If you start screwing up your game just to get even with one player than inevitably it starts being a game just between you two.

    You mentioned other players in your post, make the game about the ones that came to enjoy it, not about the piece of shit whining about it.

    Hey OP, why don't you stop being a passive-aggressive faggot, and talk to your player. He might not like playing 4th edition, but if the whole group wants to play 4e, instruct him that it's better to play with friends in a game you don't like than to not play at all.

    This works for everyone and everything, and you should remember this when you get a group of friends that wants to play, say 2nd edition AD&D, when you want to play Medieval Fantasy Superheroes.

    It would also do you a kindness to choose your gaming friends better. For if you can't stand them, why fucking be with them? You can get more friends.

    I just installed IWD, since to my own embarassment I never played any of them (I was too much into RTS back then). Trying a solo run with a human Ranger, see how far I get. FINAL DESTINATION FOR YOU MY TEEGEEZ!

    This one is valid. Someone complaining about the game doesn't want to play it. If you have the compasssion, I would suggest introducing him to things that might increase the usefulness of his healing surges. There are potions that offer regen for bloodied characters that last for the encounter (no books here, but its in the Adv Vault) so for five minutes he can keep healing with the one surge. We have these for the guys who end an encounter below 1/4hp, since a 50(ish) gp potion will get them to half. My Warden had one at all times, in a wineskin so it would never shatter. SO, you could offer game mechanics advice which would make his character more effective thus helping him out which might make him a better player and a better gamer and have more fun, thereby he may actually stop sucking the proverbial cock.

    Correct use of punctuation in both of the posts you made fun of. I can tell which one is the true Knight simply because he has a tenth grade education or higher. Still spells like an Ameri-Fag half the time, but can't blame someone for that.

    Captcha is a troll, too?

    the second post he made fun of was me.

    You complemented my education but still got it wrong, broski. >>12231673 and >>12231676 are both fake, but hilariously well-done fakes.

    He meant me.

    The magnificent thing about this is that there is NO means with which to divine the actual, original, me.

    Only myself and Joseph will know. Whenever that glorious basket of sex gets his tight ass online today, that is.

    It's not Joseph, it's Josep. Surprised you remembered that, though.

    Oh shit... We're a copy of a copy of a copy without an original? Motherfucker this thread just went full memetic mutation, Ghost in the Shell style...

    Oh no... It's mutating further!!!

    On second thought, I'll just be leaving this thread...

    Okay, well, we got some good lulz out of that, but seriously, OP, don't act like a bitch, just tell him, without being a hostile ass, that he's really screweing up the game for other people, and that he needs either to stop complaining and start playing smart/cooperating as a team, or to just quit the group and play somewhere else.

    Doing anything like what you're suggesting is just being a smug, inflammatory asshat.

    Actual Knight, (lol-Scíath-in-space) here, giving legitimate advice.

    Granted, the OP probably already aborted this crack-addicted miscarriage of a thread.
