    Was with a guy who was pro teir l33t. All he would do is seek out powerful tomes of text and be a dick to the party. So in the ultimate dick move i told anouther party member about a wizard with a book of 1,000 spells all of which were equally powerful. The party member told the dick and he immdiatly set out for it. The dungeon was a single room breeze and he had the book. He opened it up to find it was filled with 1,000 different varities of suicide spells

    You don't want to play a DM's game? Then don't play his game. You don't go to a party and then complain he put out your least favorite chips out because he likes them.

    Alright, I've got some stories to share, regarding a THAT GM our group refers to as Johnny, sometimes Fat Johnny. Now, I'll admit, I should have protested sooner than I did to most of this shit, but I was morbidly curious to see if he was going anywhere with it. I don't think a single instance got much further than one or two sessions due to the sheer amount of discomfort at the table.

    Before he would start running the actual game, he would take the players aside on different days to roleplay the backstory leading up to the events of the actual campaign, asking players to make decisions on things like hometowns without telling the players anything about them until they agreed to be from one of those hometowns. Just going to point out that at this point, the only thing I knew was I was planning to run a Mulan-ish character who disguised herself as a guy and happened to be a particularly good shot. That was the entire concept.
    Apparently the hometown I picked was on a land that was cursed by a livid, epic-level druid who basically caused the entire city to constantly be under siege by whatever monsters just so happened to be within the continent-range of the spell and the economy was based off of selling the body parts of whatever monsters were slain in exchange for more weapons and food if the monsters were inedible, and pretty much your average native citizen was equivalent of 3rd level fighters. I thought "cool, aside from monsters burning my house down, what could go wrong?" (Cont.)

    Oh, how it went wrong. Apparently the society treated women the way most RTS players treat barracks: only good for making more units. The city's laws were more lenient on women who were refugees, which ended up being why my character had to be disguised in the first place to try and bypass her around these laws. Due to the traffic of refugees fleeing into this city, I somehow ended up as a drow though I think Johnny just arbitrarily picked this for me, as well as arbitrarily choosing my character to be discovered as being a woman in a man's disguise. Knowing next to nothing about the local laws, my character had to choose between either letting her father, her only surviving family and the one who was trying to keep her safe, die or pretty much be indoctrinated into the "program". Being a goody-two-shoes, and wondering where he was going with this, I went with the latter.
    To try and abbreviate what happened next, my character was polymorphed in such a way that she became basically a drow Jessica Rabbit and was forced to breed nonstop for years, and by the time all was said and done, my character ended up married to a centaur, knocked up constantly, looked like complete fetish fuel, had a constant dexterity penalty, and if she were to adventure, she'd be forced to ride on the back of her centaur husband who'd be heavily armored while she takes potshots with a crossbow she had no mechanical way of hitting with thanks to the -6 dexterity. She was also mercilessly hit on by any and all NPCs who happened to have a penis and had a wedding ring of teleportation that would send any kids she had while adventuring back to her hometown to be raised and trained into soldiers to fight the constant onslaught of monsters. It was at about this point that I got control back over my character and simply looked down at my sheet and walked away. "WELCOME TO LEVEL 1!"

    I wish it was, but apparently three prospectives dropped out of the game when they made the same unfortunate mistake of choosing that town as their hometown simply based on "hey, it has a kinda cool name." I ended up rerolling as a generic half orc cleric to try and give the guy the benefit of the doubt, but there were players who genuinely sat through similar indoctrination of their characters who did stick around and they were the worst kind of people to be interested in the hobby, however this is a THAT GM thread rather than THAT GUY thread.

    Also to note, Johnny looks like pic related if he was 20 years older, weighed 380 lbs, and had bulging eyes instead. He also had a bad attitude regarding the mechanics, claiming that 3.5 wizards were useless unless you also added their class level to the DCs of spells because otherwise any old character would be able to make the saves 85% of the time and the wizard would be out of fuel while the fighter can just keep hacking things down and for some reason HATED 3.5 rogues.

    the better question is how he deals with the testicle situation, if they are proportional to the penis then he could be in for some trouble.

    Thankfully they aren't as proportional, but definitely sizable nonetheless.
    He would have no choice but to wear a supporting ball-cup the size of a small helmet with the protective value thereof to keep his weak point from ruining his day.
    Come to think of it the anaconda-horse-dick would also need armoring if its flaccid length is roughly the same as its engorged length.
    So the question is: Leather, chainmail, or scale mail?

    Oh boy, a chance to re-tell this story.

    So I was in this 3.5 game, my first ever, and the DM was bad. We ran in IRC, he said that he altered the rules and the statblocks, but he didn't alter shit; he just made the monsters hit us with ridiculous injuries and then die (like a bunch of apparently incredibly tough kobolds that happened to start dying in single hits after punching out the fighter's knee with a pickaxe, or a flesh golem that sustained a good 300 points of damage before finally dying). I didn't realize how bad he was at first, but I figured it out pretty quick. I made a wizard, played her for a week or so, told him ahead of time that I was going to be absent one week, and when I got back the following week my wizard was dead. He said he had killed her in my absence since she had nobody controlling her. I reminded him that I had warned him of my absence well beforehand, and he was just like "tough, but you can roll another character I guess".

    >> Anonymous 02/27/12(Mon)20:32 No.18127820

    So, I stay in, because it's my first time being a player (not my first time GMing, but all I've run before this was Star Wars Saga Edition, which I ran very by-the-book, but the players fucking loved it because I had good adventure ideas). This time I decided to roll something tough. I roll up a Lawful Neutral SPESS MEHREENS STR-heavy Cleric, wore breastplate and bashed in skulls with a big mace. I had the money to get full plate, but the DM said that full plate doesn't exist in this setting. At the DM's request -- not on my own initiative, at the DM's request -- I made him the nephew of what was basically the pope of this setting. I was more than happy to be just some low-level guy, but the DM wanted me to be related to the setting, so Alessander Remni became Alessander Remni Helmuth, nephew of Archbishop Helmuth.

    Around the same time, another guy I knew from the same IRC channels joined in, as a dwarf fighter. First session, he mentions his full plate. I'm like "wait, I thought full plate doesn't exist in this setting", and the DM's like "he got a custom suit". If I'd known that was an option, I'd have taken it, and I imagine that the pope's nephew would have no trouble persuading a smith to do it, but I just took it in stride; I was out-tanking and out-damaging the fighter in melee combat as it stood with breastplate, so full plate was really unnecessary and not worth getting upset about.

    No, what WAS worth getting upset about came later...

    One day, we don't have the whole party together. It's just me, the other cleric (summoner build) and the fighter.

    The DM decides that we should do a quick little prequel adventure of us hanging out in a tavern for whatever reason. We go along with it.

    Starts out simple enough. My cleric is very LAW AND ORDER, but he's not above a drink now and then. We go into the tavern, and there's an exotic dancer. The DM describes her as resembling a young human girl. Clearly she's a gnome, but I decided that my character would go into witch hunt mode for a sec, so I glare at the bartender and say "doesn't that dancer look a little YOUNG to you?" The bartender's like NO NO SHE'S A GNOME I SWEAR and the dancer's like NO NO I'M A GNOME I SWEAR, so my character chills out. Our characters start swapping backstories like they're campfire stories or something, the other cleric buys a dragonbeetle in a jar from the bartender (I later learned that the DM made him raise the beetle and then care for the beetle's eggs, and do so in excruciating detail).

    Session's winding down, my character gets up to leave the tavern. As he leaves, the gnome takes a seat at one of the tables and calls him back. I could sort of see what the DM was trying to do, but Alessander's a fanatic. There's no time for bitches when there are heretics in need of smiting. I sit down anyway, figuring Alessander will HONOR AND GLORY his way through the conversation and probably turn her off pretty early.

    As soon as I sit down, the DM says...

    I didn't stay in much longer; waited for Alessander's inevitable grievous wounding at the hands of a bullshit enemy (turned out to be an invisible ogre swinging a tree branch), and refused healing, choosing death (and the DM had previously said that resurrection didn't exist in the setting, so he couldn't exactly keep me in, though he did try some little "spontaneous surge of divine energy" shit).

    I heard occasional horror stories from the other players every now and then about that campaign, but I don't remember them very well. I think there was something about them having to fight their way across a quarter-mile-wide canyon to get to one giant throwing rocks on the other side, and he actually made them MOVE IT OUT, action-by-action, on a 1"=5' grid. Best (or worst) part is that when they finally reached the giant, it turned out he was the guy they'd been sent to meet, so they couldn't kill him. They couldn't kill him even if they tried; he was one of the DM's god-mode mary sue NPCs that deus ex machina'd everything.

    I play a group of people who play the same thing over and over again. Same guy will be a fighter or a ranger over and over while trying to kill and hump everything. So each time I get stuck as the caster, not that I mind but it always ends up with me as a Sorcerer. We start a new campaign and oh look I'm a caster again. The dm always pull bullshit out of his ass and when I ask him what are his house rules he states,"I have too many to list just learn them as you go along." Alright so I keep playing it's w/e. I cast a stun for any 4hd creature and starts to yell at me about how I need to roll for attack even though it's a clear will save. Don't want to cause a scene so I keep going. A few levels later we are on a pirate ship and I go to cast lightning bolt and this time he tells me, "it bounces back and hits you for the same as it hit your enemy." even though we are on the inside of the captains quarters so now I'm yelling at him about making up shit as he goes along. Arguments break out and he redacts his bounce back idea. We continue on like nothing happened until the next dungeon. "There is one path ahead through the mountains which is reputed to be a labyrinth." Cool lets fight some minotaurs. God how I wish I turned around. After entering labyrinth the door locks behind us and a stone slab covers it, no exit. Two minotaurs come to fight us and naturally I cast fireball. Nothing happens. Next round on my turn I cast lightning bolt. Nothing happens. I cast detect magic. Nothing happens. Ask DM what the hell is going on and he says, "Oh theres an anti magic field throughout the entire building." Never returned.

    I don't think FATAL would handle the world well.
    I'd suggest GURPS or RIFTS really.
    Though the more I think about the types of monsters and effects... you could probably simulate the game using just the core books of AD&D 2e or D&D 3e (and by extension pathfinder).

    To be fair the bouncing lightning bolts is a rule from ye olde AD&D.
    A lot of the spells with areas (including lines) would get fucked up and either blast back, start bouncing around, or require you to pop out a calculator to determine the strength of the blast in which direction if cast in an area that wasn't big enough.
    Assuming you used all the rules for the spell that is.

    Then said dm starts raving about how all the worlds problems are caused by religion, except for naruto which got it right. eeeh okay,

    Then one of the players comes in, she is pretty good and normal looking so I introduce myself, and then she tells me how she just returned for emptying her parents buckets. Evidently her parents are disabled and their septic was plugged up sooo

    My current online game has had all players suggesting we have an alternate dimension erotic D&D game after a slime attacked my loli elf cleric the other day.

    I was ashamed to say I was the one who knew the most about the Book of Erotic Fantasy the most, but everyone else was far more enthusiastic about en E-RPG than I surprisingly (especially due to me already being THAT GUY (?) for bringing a loli elf to the table).

    I have to say, it's going to be hilarious and terribad.

    tend to DM my games. homebrews mostly, but my aim is always for the players to have fun and plenty of wiggle room, long as it doesn't fuck with the other players to the point of irl irritation

    ran a superhero game short while back and had the only real dick player i can recall having. friends all at college elsewhere or on a different schedule, so gathered random /tg/uys and a friend or two online

    one players makes Maestrp, who can slow time and has a handful of "henchbots." it's largely comic (semi-Silver Age like mentioned earlier), so the first session is the party happens to arrive at the same crime scene: neo nazis have broken into a lab to use the interdimensional portal inside to rally an army of Hitlers

    the group starts punching out nazis (at the front of the line, just dudes with pistols, throwing star swastikas, and trench coats). the party beats 3 out of 5, still fighting the survivor and chasing the fleeing one when Maestro declares "Ok, I'm going over and cutting off the unconscious one's balls"

    >> luffy316 02/28/12(Tue)02:29 No.18131575
    and this is all ignoring his trying to rule the game by claiming he can halt time entirely and basically end the fight without the rest of the party having to contribute...

    the one player who is a LG type goes after him, whole party objecting in character to mutilating an unconscious prisoner. Maestro is VERY firm on his point, and the argument goes on while the tank grudgingly stomps the last fighting nazi unconscious and the speedster drags the fleeing on back. he stands directly between Maestro and the nazi. Maestro tries anyway, but he's a low Str, otherwise normal guy against a speedster, just tell him its impossibly while he's watching him

    Maestro tries to plead his case, explaining his grandparents were killed in a concentration camp (first any of us had heard of it... or any backstory of his at all). the group still argues, and so Maestro declares "robots, shoot him," and points at speedster

    the tank finally takes a stand and steps in front of the robot and tears its head off in one go. ultimately, Maestro finds an opening between interogating the conscious nazi and cues his robot to castrate the man

    rolls well, so i just shrug and let it happen. the group's outraged and disgusted, so they march on to leave him behind fixing his busted robot

    Me: "At this point you'd be fighting a "swasti-cow," but this is going longer than expected...
    Moral Player: "Well at least we spent a half hour ARGUING ABOUT TESTICLES!!!"

    party bursts into the main lab to find the nazis and their interdimensional hitlers. they start a grandstanding speech, and Maestro says something snappy back

    Maestro: "You'll never get away with this!"
    Me: "You're like 500 yards down the hall tinkering with a robot's head... so the party just hears "WHAT!? Is something cool happening!? You'd tell me if something cool was happening, right!?"
    >> luffy316 02/28/12(Tue)02:39 No.18131637
    so the fight breaks out. tank vs Adolf Hulkler, the economancer wraps the flaming Adolph Sulfur in pennies to boil him alive in molten metal, and the speedster grabs the nazi leader and starts circling the block dragging him behind. Maestro catches up and sicks his robots on the scene, and catches the eye of Adolph Grizzler, an arian polar bear. like i said, Maestro's a lightweight, so a crit from the bear nearly kills him outright. his robots unload into it, hurting it, but it's a raging polar bear mauling his shit

    he curses and screams for the players to help, most of whom are a fair distance from him. the only one close to him is Mosquito, the flying super strong moral character mentioned before

    Maestro: "HELP ME, YOU IDIOTS!!"
    Mosquito: "...you really have to understand my predicament. I could stop that bear, but if I did, who would stop Australian Hitler? He's got a boomerang and everything. He could start his own Australian holocaust."
    *flies away and one-shots Aussie Hitler. leaves Maestro to be eaten by a bear and the tank steals his remaining robot as a butler

    I talk to the guy afterward and explain their problems, and allow him to make a new guy next week. so enters Kingpin (open laughter at his name from the players; "You're playing the obese Spider-Man villain!?"), who can duplicate himself and explode with no harm to himself

    explain early on that for balance, his clones explode and disappear like grenades, he can do it infinitely himself

    I don't really have any horror stories. The worst thing that happened was I managed to give one of my players a dirty dream about an NPC his character interacted with.

    A schizophrenic drow rogue that found religion/medication (NPC) very nearly tried to molest a necropolitan cleric (PC) because she forgot to take her meds. The whole affair makes me feel like That Guy... still, some part of me is proud that I could inflict dreams on someone.

    On the left is the Necropolitan, Cass Patcher, and the left is the sister of the schizo who was repeatedly molested/abused and ended up just as monstrous from unresolved issues.

    the session starts with the party separated but have eachothers' contacts. animal attacks start happening around the city, as The Lorax (a psychic hippie) is controlling animals to rise against humans. the players each have an encounter with an animal attack, saving someone or being targeted themselves

    before I can get to Kingpin, he says "I jump in the car and drive to the scene where Lucre is fighting the gorilla."
    Me: "How would you know that? You're a new character in another part of the city...?"
    KP: "I pull out my danger detector and follow it there."
    Me: "....the one you got from the danger detector store?" obviously no mention of this ANYwhere before
    KP: "Yea, why not."
    Me getting an idea: "Ok, well that's not where it would lead you. There is MUCH bigger trouble in town square..."
    KP: "Then I drive there."

    results in KP basically trying to solo the boss fight. barely scratches Lorax's giant boa constricter with his twin guns (yea, for some reason he thought that was the defining characteristic of his cloning living bomb). takes one or two bashes of its tail to bury him in pavement, and kills his main body
    >> luffy316 02/28/12(Tue)02:49 No.18131701

    Me: "So you're alive... but only as clones. You can create more from these, but if they all explode or get KO'd, you're genuinely dead."
    KP: "What!? You said I could explode with no harm!"
    Me: "Remember when I said to your original self only? Not the clones?"
    KP: "...fuck it. Jihad this shit."
    *kamikazes his only remaining clones to do moderate damage to the snake, bit to his minions

    Me: "Ok, you're dead. So the rest of the party..."
    KP: "Actually..."
    team tank: "I swear to GOD if you say the real you was in a bunker somewhere the whole time...!!"
    *actually almost quotes his explanation*
    Mosquito: ">Dm says you're dead. Say 'no."

    so I just kick him from the game, to the practical applause of the players. tries to arrive next session with Shithead, a Clayface made of poisonous dung, kick him again before the party tells me it's actually a near exact ripoff

    It actually blossomed into my most successful setting. Vitha the Maladjusted remained an important figure through many of the games I ran in it.

    She became a monk as a kind of failed program to reform troubled youths through rigid discipline, who became a thuggish criminal when the funding ran out. In the setting drow live like pikeys since Lolth got her shit pushed in by a well-timed Prestidigitation spell, and her parents were... uh, 'black trash', I guess? Insane sister raped her in a broom closet, parents to busy getting drunk to care...

    How about I go over the party?

    First was Cass Patcher, an undead policeman from a fascist city-state that fell victim to an insurance scheme. "Die, we'll bring you back" with some fine print, obviously. He was assigned to all the really sick shit that went on in his home city; deranged serial killers, ghoul breakouts(they turned criminals into them to continue to serve their sentences if they died in prison), and occasionally other unliving officers than went berserk.

    Felentyr, drow cleric. Had an artifact in the form of a mask that prevented the wave of mindfuckery that wiped all memory of Lolth/drow culture from the heads of the Spider Queen's followers, but the shock drove her completely batshit. I regularly took the player aside for her hallucinations, voices, and other mental fuckups. Actually appeared in a lot of campaigns, usually having no idea how she got there.

    William DeFarge, sorcerer who was blacklisted by the Guild of Wizards for trying to set up a magic ship without a license. His bloodline was the product of his great grandfather binding a solar in a cursed desert and having his way with it. It eventually escaped and caused shenanigans. He was otherwise well-adjusted and normal, eventually had a daughter with Vitha.

    "Ramirez", orc fighter. Used two shields, and was prone to blackouts. In the setting illithids, rather than seeking political power directly, they instead formed a business conglomerate. He was the product of an attempt to breed a warrior more susceptible to mental control, but instead caused him to compulsively hide in boxes when he'd blackout. Otherwise a normal fighter, except that he dual-wielded spiked shields and German Suplexed elves he fought.

    He actually was a decent fighter, being a spy and all.

    The way the health system worked in this particular rule set was ludicrous - each player at starting level had at least 80 to 100 hit points, about eight to ten over five specific "wound levels", and arrows did a whopping 2d6 damage per hit. Honestly, it was good for representing a sort of "heroic" stock for the players but a sketchy way to give NPCs health

    The rulebook actually specified (as well as the majority of the feedback from the playerbase) that for speeding up combat it was alright to ignore two or three of these wound levels, effectively giving NPCs three or so sets of HP instead of five. (So, around 30-something).

    Really, it was a story element I used to at least attempt to create a sense of urgency, even though none of the players were particularly good role players. (Very linear, wanted loot and special powers, almost never talked in character).

    I later had the same guy get angry when a boss hit him with a spell he didn't recognize since he was a wizard and had access to the spell book. It was a creature-specific paralyzing dark lance, and I guess he thought I was making it up or something.

    It was a very... interesting spiel as DM.

    I ran a setting based kinda/shamelessly ripped off from Soul Eater and Eternal Darkness. A world in which insanity is like a magic sickness, makes people turn into insane killers which eventually turn into monsters that are the primary foe of the game. Mental and emotional development is a big part of the game for every character. If they don't get over anxieties/fears/obsessions, they eventually begin to present in physical form. They would see enemies that aren't there, they would see players as their enemies, they would suffer on rolls etc. etc.. It was pretty fun, actually, I had to read hard into the backstories/reactions of the PCs. If I planned on going into psych mode with one of them, I took the player aside and we hypothesized on them, then I'd come up with a fitting mental trial/conflict. Some players had their characters go outright berserk. Every command they gave their PCs, I twisted to make it fit to their current insanity. It had a high chance of not running well at all, but my players said it was their favourite setting yet and I really, really enjoyed it. And all ways of giving in to their insanity were related to their characters and pasts. For example, if the bard was in danger, all he had to do was play a certain song. In his head, it was the same song he played to his lover, a song that had her caught by her father and mercilessly killed for covorting without permission. The song was his trigger to insanity. Everyone had something like that.

So I called upon another DM I knew to handle a session for me. It wasn't a large or impactful session at all. The PCs were getting lessons from an old, experienced Stoic (people who have mastered madness in order to become more efficient hunters). Strictly no rolling, no health is ever lost, no items are used or found. I would come back later, look over the log and distribute XP/new mental statuses/techniques accordingly. The only thing the players and PCs would have is their experiences. How could it possibly go wrong?

    Needless to say, he devastated my group. I never knew he was a THAT DM before, because he always seemed pretty reasonable and knew how to tell a good overarching story even if they did often have plenty of GRIMDARKGRITTY moments. Plenty of ultra-violence and a nice scattering of rape as well. If there were any complaints, I was expecting them at next week's session. We always had a pre-session talk, lasting about an hour or so, where we went over the effects previous sessions had, they reminded eachother of important plot points and so on. I was expecting to hear any minor complaints of perhaps going a little to far then. But instead, I got flooded with complaints the next time I got online, which was a day after the session.

    My replacement DM had pretty much tore the game apart. As we had discussed, the Stoic had a spell that would have the PCs face their mental demons whilst their bodies were safe and immobile. I gave him a brief overview of some of the more prevalent or recent issues the PCs were having and he'd come up with scenarios for them. But jesus christ, I never expected them to be that fucked up. Out of five characters, he literally broke three of them. The warrior was fine because his primary fear was being unable to surpass his father, which was babby level compared to the others. Eventually, the female druid got over her fears of losing her humanity etc. etc.. But as for the others... poor souls.

    The bard was forced into a concert room. An entire orchestra was there. But the only music on his sheet was the song that killed his lover. The entire audience awaited, but in one of the boxes, he could see his lover sitting. Everytime he tried to leave the stage or warn her, he'd come right back to when the curtains pulled up and the audience awaited his song. He had no choice but to play it. The entire orhcestra played along with his lute and, as expected, he rewitnessed his lover get murdered by her father. She stayed dead after the song finished, but he soon realised another audience member was replaced by her. He had to play the song 300 times, watching his lover get killed 300 times, before the dream finally ended. By the end of it, he was beyond insanity. He wouldn't turn into a demon or anything because he was just too mindfucked. All he could do was stick by familiar faces, feed himself and play the same song. He was immune to insanity, now, but he was also useless and a shell of a being.

    This was the first straw. This was overkill by far. This was a big attack on the bard. It was the kind of thing I had planned if they ever happened across one of the Eldritch horror like bosses. The players knew the gravity of the situation and I couldn't save the bard from his character's fate. They ended up mercy killing him. But really, worst of all was the punishment he had planned for the female ranger.

    There's no way to dress this next part up. The female ranger had a fear of orcs. More than anything, she feared them because of standard tragic past in which said orcs burnt her village to the ground whilst she and her father were out hunting. So he has her relieve the moments. She's standing, with her father, watching from the forest as her village is destroyed and her neighbours are slaughtered. She sees her brother run out of their house only to be cut down and scalped.

    But then, the dream takes a new turn when she finds her father slowly, painfully transforming into an orc. She tries to run and even tries to kill him, but he catches up to her. Long story short, her orc-dad rapes her. Then drags her into the village and the rest of the orcs rape her. Then they drag her into her old house, where her sister and mother are also being raped by orcs, a lot of which are now orc versions of her past villagers/brothers/father. And he went into a hell of a lot of detail as to how this rape went down. Seriously, far too much detail for a sixteen year old girl getting gangraped. To paraphrase, he described how she could smell, taste and feel nothing but orc cum all over and inside her body.

    Immediately after that, everyone quit the session. It was the final 'dream' anyway, everyone had already suffered through theirs. I guess he was saving the 'best' till last.

    So yeah. That happened. Everyone seemed genuinely harrowed by the experience. The girl playing the ranger was pretty much grieving over her character when she told me about it. But, I gotta admit, my party are pretty much fucking troopers. I did offer just to sweep the session under the rug. To forget that DM, those dreams, etc, etc. But they wouldn't. Infact, the ranger's player virtually couldn't. To her, her character had gone through it. And the bard agreed. The other guy was a rogue who had some strange metaphysical fear of becoming a wolf due to how much he preyed on the innocent before casting that life away. His nightmare was becoming a wolf and eating the woman he loved. It was apparently pretty sexually charged, and ended up breaking his character, but I thought it tame compared to the orc rape.

    So basically, the empty headed bard was 'put down', the rogue became a one-shot villain and the ranger became a recurring 'dragon'. She ran off, fled, lost her mind and became one of the demons they hunt. It was pretty awesome, actually, I let her player come up with her design. She said the most disturbing thing about the whole session was the fact the orcs incapacitated her by nailing her hands. So her thing was that she was pierced and nailed through, everywhere. She used her entire body as weapons at it turned out hard as hell to get past the spiky defense. Eventually, the new band of heroes did put her out of her misery. Oh, and the Stoic who the DM played became a major antagonist too.

    So I guess we still got a pretty good RP out of the guy being THAT DM. The one truly bullshit thing was the rape. The ranger never once showed a hint of fearing that. She really just feared the orcs as an all destroying force rather than anything material or carnal.

    All of my friends are normal. The only fucked up weirdos I've ever met have been in online games and it's why I don't play online games any more.

    You get the occasional cool guy who'll maybe be a bit too FOREVER ALONE and want to follow up on a (self-written) love interest a little too intently or whatever. I mainly get weaboo catgirls, scalyfags playing ridiculous Dragonborn and antisocial weirdos who just want to fuck with other members of the party etc. etc., though.

    As as as DMs go, I almost always DM in RL. In online games I think the worst I've ever had was the "allow anything" guy. A half elf/centaur, minotaur, drow and fairly vanilla human cleric of Pelor walk into a bar...

    I like THAT DM stories that end with "and then it was fucking awesome because we did something with that shit."

    They really showcase whats great about /tg/. Even the worst garbage can be salvaged if you work at it.

    Heck, the reason I like that Poison the Giant's Toe screencap so much is that its literally the story of one good player salvaging a shit game, a shit character, a shit premise, a shit player and a shit GM all by his lonesome, and having a blast doing it.

    You know... I'd play a CoC Pathfinder campaign...

    I'd even GM it, but my English isn't particularly good and I kinda fear what I might become.

    Like any save/check, you can choose not to roll and thus automatically fail. That's the way my DM does it anyway.

    Pic related, created and saved for posterity. Shitty as it is, it shall remain proof that good roleplaying and creative storytelling can overcome the very worst of the community, and do so in a way that makes it fun for everyone involved.
