ITT: Moments when YOU became That Guy.
>>40385247>Session ends with my char beaten up, tied down and ready for the slammer>This was done by the group because I was tresspassing in that tower>Next session got postponed for reasons>When we begin, GM asks someone to recap>I do it and skip the part of me losing the fight>Continue from mid-fight and floor all of them>mfw
>>40385247Where the hell is this guardsman from?Reverse google gave me four /tg threads. He looks like a cameo in GI Joe or something.
>>40385384I wondered too.
> Playing Warlock whos pretending to be a Rouge> Start Campaign in Jail Cell> After 10 minutes in seprate cells I decided to do something.>Teleport opposite side of bars> Open doors for party members, kill Guards> Oh snap, we killed all the guards> Induct small Hamlet into our party, through fear, then by love.> my simple Warlock-Rouge, is now Bandit King.> Bandit King starts rebellion against "Evil Empire."> DM mentions to me sometime later he was about to do something and the guards were going to hire us to do something.
>>40385399Exo Squad? What heresy is this?
Does it count as "That Guy" if it ended making for a pretty good plot-arc, despite putting everyone else in the party in danger?Cos I sorta did that with this thing I posted in another topic: >>40383081
>>40385449You count as "That Guy" if you made the gme experience progressively worse for people in the table.
I used to be one of those holdouts who would always suggest we play DnD 3.5, even after 5E came out.I am so ashamed...
>new superheroes campaign>make a kinetic energy controller>give myself all sort of useful and creative abilities based off this>jump and then stop in midair, blow people across the room with a punch, deflect attacks, lock down enemies, etc..>game begins>everyone else is playing very straightforward heroes>encounters are designed around them, not me>I wipe the floor with things while they struggle>defeat the big supervillain in a single attack>sudden realization that I'm that asshole who brought a wizard to a party full of fighters and monks.
>Make rich spoiled swordgirl character.The basic idea here was that she was going to be some bored noble that used her family's money to get lots of sword training and be pretty good at it... but sorta suck at everything else. My intention was to almost be a comic-relief character. Rush into fights overconfident and unprepared, refuse to use stealth when the rest of the party wanted to, whine every time we had to camp out somewhere instead of going to an inn (complete with having zero survival skills)... basically have the party babbysit her until she learned that adventuring was SRS BSNS and finally grow up and have some character development.That's not what happened.>First plot arc leads us to some abandoned necropolis or whatever that cultists are using for some summoning ritual. >Party mage is studying the statues and ruins outside, rogue is looking for loot or traps or some shit, religitard paladin is praying to god or whatever. BORIIIINNNNG.>Go in aloneFrom this point on in the RP, my luck just turns amazing forever.>Through dumb luck and not a single roll under 18, I avoid the traps along the way out of sheer reflex saves.>Get to main chamber, severely outnumbered>At some point in the following fight, I rolled three 20s in a row.>Win fight, kill all the cultists>Party finally finishes up their shit outside, prepares to move in>My character is casually strolling out with a bloody sword dragging the cult leader behind her. >"You guys done with study hall out here? Good. Not that you deserve it, but I don't need the money anyway, so if you carry him back for me, I'll let you share the credit."The entire rest of the RP went like this. I didn't even mean it to. It was like playing Fallout New Vegas with 10 Lucky, everything just worked for me ALL THE TIME. What was supposed to end up being a character the party needed to babysit ended up stealing the spotlight, being a total bitch about it (hey it's her personality) and earning me untold butthurt.
>>40385418Terrible cartoon that took shit from Macross, Battletech, and apparently 40k. When exosquad appropriated the Battletech Madcat and FASA sued it started the shitstorm that caused the "unseen"
>>40385703The dangers of staying true to your character. You could have had her be scared at some point during her fight.
>>40385519Not sure if that guy. It just seems like you're the only one who optimized. That's just an issue with party. This is why groups should make characters together.
>>40385247They mostly come from the first years of gaming. I was so young and so, so stupid.I DMed for a bunch of schoolmates in high school. But I wasn't really fond of them. So after the second session I sent them to a kind of tomb-of-horroresque dungeon filled with deathtraps and killed them all. (it didn't hel that they kinda were ThatGuys of their own, as teens usually are).Then, one of the guys wanted to run a game for me and my other friends. Suspecting a revenge TPK, we briefly considered showing up with the Dark Lords from the ravenloft book as PCs, but in the end agreed on just powerleveling our evil characters from our home campaign and use those. The adventure was a straight rip-off from Baldur's gate and it was super-boring because the DM had no idea what to do on that side of the screen.I can only say that those were the darkest times in my gaming career.
>>40385293Anon, that's some Universal-rewriting ability you have there.
>>40385247>Playing in a short (10 session) palladium game>My character is an aberrant (letter of the law keeps his word, will do anything for his goals) elf Paladin>Rest of the party is a male Orc Witch, a Fire/Air magic Warlock, a human Soldier and s human priest played as brother and sister, and a human Longbowman: everyone is evil or close to it, together out of mutual goals; all 5th level>Sessions are going great - we get to the typical Mayincatec ruined city in the jungle, pretty tough slog. My character and the orc Witch are getting chummy>Huge fight with natives, everyone is wounded but we pull it out at the end. We decide to take a break from the table, then return find a place for the characters to hole up, heal, etc.>I go out for a smoke. While outside I hear the guy playing the warlock say I just don't know how to roleplay evil. I mean, full mockery mode. Being a real ass about it.>Now, I had this guy set up with the GM so that 99% of the time he came off as a noble warrior Captain Goodguy but if you broke your word to him, betrayed him or his friends, or impeded his goal of founding an Elven Homeland he'd gladly torture you to death while humming showtunes. The GM has already told me he likes how I am playing the guy.>I make a bunch of noise coming in. He's grinning at me.>As the party moves to shelter more natives attack.>The Warlock lays down a Cloud of Steam specifically so that it covers all the natives *and* the longbowman, soldier, and priest, killing them as well as the foes.>Out of character he tells everyone 'next to last session; fewer ways to split the loot!'>I tell the GM "I hurl my battle axe at the warlock">Hit; kill the warlock. I look him in the eye 'One less split to the loot'>He goes off 'that is out of character! You've been a goody-goody this whole time! There is no way a guy roleplayed as good would do that!'>GM is laughing as I show him the separate sheet of notes on character motivationcont

Invite them in for an interview>Interviewee walks in; its the guy who played the Warlock>He says 'would I be working for you?'>'Yeah'>He walked out without a wordI was hoping to hire a gamer!
>>40386160Shit that didn't happen.
>>40385247Because of ADHD, I often, without paying attention to what I'm doing with my hands, start to play with the d10s of other players spinning them like tops
>doing a dungeon crawl in 5e>way is blocked, we have to sift through rubble to get into the next room>fresh corpse in there>one of the players asks how the hell there could be a body if the way was blocked by rocks>pipe up from other side of table that there must have been another entrance in>she screams at me to shut up
>>40386277That's not That Guy...that's pointing out the obvious.
We were having a lot of fun one time playing DH until, for no reason, I tried to shoot a really important NPC that was sick and bedridden and had fallen into nihilism (logic being "if you are not going to do anything in your life I might as well take you out of your misery")The result in the game is irrelevant, it completely killed the mood of the session because I acted impulsively like an idiot.
>>40386212Why would I lie?
>>40386312to make the story seem betterI personally do not mind, but I suppose others do
>>40386264That's not really That Guy behaviour. One of our players does that sort of thing, I've got this little notepad and I have to stop him stealing it at least once per session.
>>40386312Why would you?
>>40386336>stealingOh, I would never do that, I'm just a bit annoying
>Playing Goblin Alchemist>First session with the party>Okay guys, all of them, except a guy playing a half-orc fighter>Chaotic Randumb Murderhobo mostly, all the jazz, stealing from pcs, stealing from npcs, always getting caught, insults...>FF to night>Random Encounter, couple of worgs>Me and the fighter fail the perception roll, we stay asleep>Randumb decides to start sleep-fucking a tree while insulting the party barbarian>Calls him son of a Goblin whore>My char wakes up, hears him, ignores ongoing battle to stab him in the spineDon't know if really That Guy-ish, I could've fought and ignored him though.
>>40386363I didn't mean as in full on theft, just taking it and fiddling.Then again, I get really butthurt about people touching my stuff so I'm probably just autistic.
>>40385761pretty sure you've got that backward.The Unseen were ripoffs of Macross designs. FASA did the ripoff, not some third party
There was one entire session in which I had no choice but to be "that guy" for half of it>Playing DH game>Due to high corruption and other reasons I agreed with the GM that my character would suffer from loosing consciousness at times and my personality would shift into a complete evil bitch that doesn't give a fuck about his companions>Previous to the next session, do a single game with the GM in which I make a pact with a demon (campaign is coming to an end and I want my character to survive)>Next session>Everything goes smoothly and well in advancing through an underhive to get to the base of BBEG and kill him before he summons nurgle demon>personality shift happens>From then on become a total asshole>Blow up the initial plan of an stealthy entrance by entering head on>All party is caught in an ambush>Side with BBEG and ask the rest of the party to lower their weapons and submit >Shoot another player for not doing it>Blow the face of another player that had interrupted the BBEG>Disarm another player who had managed to sneak a weapon that he was going to use to shoot the BBEG>Kill loveable NPC who tried to come and save us>All of this done because I wanted to stay in characterWell, I least I got praise for the good roleplaying
>>40386654>staying in character due to justified reasons>that guyAnon, no.
my absolute favorite
>>40386304something very similar happened in one of my DH games... I wonder...
>>40387184Vainilla did it

>>40385418exo squad was awesome, its about racism in space and dudes in power armor fighting space pirates martian superhuman and all kinds of stuff

>>40386264That's not a a big deal, anon. I know how you feel, though, I constantly have to be fiddling with things in order to feel comfortable. Years and years of vidya, LEGOs, and drawfagging is probably the reason why, sort of like how smokers tend to have oral fixations. When I have dice, I just tend to roll them around for no real reason, which has a nice side-effect of making all of my players constantly nervous.
>>40385247This was barely my 3rd Pen and Paper game every playedWhat caused me to go down the road of That Guy:>Play with DM introduced by my friend>Do it over AIM (Skype/Roll20 didn't exist back then)>New character made in an already existing party>Character got tricked by DM into rummaging through the current party's wagon of stuff>My character gets beat up and turned into the party's minion for stealing from them>Fast forward later in the session where my character gets killed>Slowly bleeding to death, no one bothered to even stabilize me>Never got killed before; DM made it seem like I played a weak ass character, and felt no sympathy. Felt bullied so I gave up playing nice.The moment I temporarily became a shade of That Guy:>Make Druid with bear companion because DM is horrible with making balanced encounters and I wanted to survive>Finally decent enough to keep up with party despite my inexperience>Anytime the DM thought I may steal the spotlight, he makes up ways to screw me over, including a troll crashing a door right on top of me so his friends get the glory>Subtly got back at DM by asking for non-core spells from the Spell Compendium; saved them for BBEG>At BBEG fight, blew all spells to buff Druid and Bear and threw all my Save-or-Sucks>DM refused to let my character have the spotlight at all, kept DM Fiating bullshit such as an Eye Washing Station spell and enter Gaseous Form when clearly grappled. He was a Vampire Wizard.>DM caused himself to be backed into a corner where eventually no one in the party had any feasible way to stop the BBEG. Cue DMPC Cleric use cutscene powers to one-shot the Vampire with a Cure Medium Wounds neck holdIt was that day I found out that DM was one of the worst DMs ever(but I was in heavy denial since he gave quantity over quality), and also realizing that the only way I become a That Guy is if I'm playing with a That DM.
I recently was "That Guy">playing a NG Elf Cleric of the Demigod of Flowers>respects the Gods>rest of party: TN Murderhobo Barbarian, CN Goblin Hunter with a prehistoric Rhino, Blink CN Dog Inquisitor with a Miniature Human Cohort (wtf?), TN Halfling Rogue (blatant Bilbo rip-off)>Evil demons have taken up residence beneath the temple>root out the demons, free the animals they were expirementing on.>find notes that the demons were expirementing with Godblood, specifically that of the Goddess of Death>find Goddess of Death, helpless having her blood slowly removed by tube aparatus>Barbarian wants to kill her, has a beef because a friend died to her minions>Blink Dog wants to take a sample of the blood>Goblin wants to let his Rhino eat the Goddess and gain her power>Halfling has no clue>I decide this is way to fucked up, and I'll save the Goddess.>tell everyone to roll initiative.>I win, cast Confusion on everyone except halfling>Barbarian babbles incoherently>Rhino kills blink dog>Goblin stabs his rhino>miniature man cohort feels in terror>hafling does nothing>I walk over to death goddess and teleport out of the dungeon with her.>Goblin gets killed by rhino>Minature man gets killed by blink dog>halfling runsawayThats what they get for not playing Full Casters, am I right?

>>40395285That DM in that case, I think
>>40385418>>40385761>terribleLook at this faggot.Don't think this image is from Exo Squad - the jump troops had way more armor after the first 5 episodes than this guy, and none of the Venitian guerillas had as much as the image.Also, watch Exo Squad. holy shit that cartoon was so ahead of its time. Politics, naval, covert, and ground warfare, diplomacy, World War II analogies, named characters dying in battle (RIP Alec Deleon), racism, compelling villains, heroes on both sides of the war. It doesn't get much better than this show.https://youtu.be/xDGKN08reKM?t=8m43sAdmiral Windfield just prior to launching the Normandy-esque invasion to liberate Earth: "All of human history has led us to this moment.

>>40385247My sheer hatred of the Tau almost got us in trouble at the FLGS because I just couldn't stop coming up with new insults for them and people who play them. Eventually the manager came over and asked if we'd keep the coarse language down.I'll bet the faggot was a Tau player.
>>40396487You can't say that and not share some of those sick xeno burns
>>40396533Sure he can. It's a made-up story.
>>40385247I've turned the intrigue based campaign into a slaughterhouse. Every single noble we've interacted with, I've killed. With the exception of one. The witch turned that one into a lizard.
>>40396683Tau player detected.
When I made a Rorschach expy it taught me that characters like Rorschach could only be considered good in the most cynical of worlds. I was pretty much the parties millstone. The worst cases of it were:>Having a subordinate tortured to death because said subordinate objected to prisoners being tortured to death even though they already gave up information.>Killing a guy carrying a demon summoning kill switch when the rest of the party wanted to wait for an opportunity to kill him without summoning a powerful demon.>Committing genocide against an entire tribe through poisoning their water supplies because said tribe wanted to remain neutral in the conflict because they saw no reason to fight against either side since both just pass through their lands as quickly as possible.
>>40397153...I'm pretty sure Rorschach never killed the ambivalent. He certainly didn't respect them, but he didn't murder them.
>>40397153honestly that sounds more chaotic/stupid than lawful stupid. rorschach took no excuses for wrongdoing, but the demon thing is just impractical and the guy is punished either way, the genocide thing is over the top, tortured cause you don't like torture is kinda iffy?
>>40385703It's storytime for you, anon. Tell me your story.
>>40385247To be fair, it was because of a That Guy himself in my group, but I shouldn't have sunk to his level.>Every time we go into a town, That Guy tries to ring up the local hookers and fuck about a dozen of them at once to boast of his manliness or whatever.>Insist on fade to black, he complains vociferously, apparently wanting me to narrate his sexual escapades or whatever.>One day, pass him a note saying that he has an odd purple swelling on his character's dick.>It kind of hurts when he pisses.>Tries going to clerics, have all of them laugh at him, and maliciously make him try to make nigh-impossible diplo checks to convince the priests that he deserves to be healed instead of launching into sermons concerning his sexual immoralities.>Character eventually dies without ever getting it cured. in what was a probable suicide by monster.
>>40397889>>40397952My Rorschach expy had a heavy dose of Richard Rahl thrown in as well. The infamous designated hero who viewed virtue as weakness, imposed economic and military sanctions against countries who didn't join his empire, was sexually attracted to his girlfriends general ripper behavior and had legendarily poor impulse control.In the case of torturing a guy who objected to torture, my characters 'reasoning' was "Only the wicked object to the punishing of the wicked". Also, objectivism defines morality as "the degree to which one's actions ensure one's continued survival" so my character considered things like mercy, generosity, compassion, empathy or honor to be weaknesses.
>>40385414jesus christ nigger. you play table top games and can't fucking spell ROGUE!? the u comes after the g numbnuts
>rogue trader rp >super mutated navigator that looks like palpatine but twice as spooky and half as charismatic >the party is at the local hive world to stock up on ammo and beer>I go to the nearest beast master and flash a razor sharp smile at the caged creatures >stampede ensues>I single handedly subdue the creatures (rolled a 1) and got a bounty for it>I then bought the master's beasts and ended up with what the GM described as a 'rock Buffalo' >I proceeded to ride the Buffalo everywhere forever, naming him Jennifer IIJenny I is a different story
>>40397889>>40398252Isn't it ironic that Rorschach was meant to be an insult to Objectivism and he's still nicer than objectivist characters that are treated as heroes.
>Playing a Chaotic Neutral Goblin>Character's backstory has very little reason to hang out with the party, so goes out to wander around as soon as the campaign starts and the rest of the group is durdling around on the beach that the campaign started at>Stupid shit, one guy tries to tame a random beach crab for no conceivable reason other than "For lulz">I find an automaton in my wanderings, decide its the most interesting thing I have seen, and that I will roll with it.>Bring automaton back into functioning condition, convince it to join up with me>Follows me back to the beach where everyone is still durdling around>After they finish durdling, the automaton gives us a quest to do this that and the other thing, I agree because I actually like the automaton>A few sessions later, half of the party does basically nothing but durdle, one essentially just broods, and I spend the majority looking for fun things to do>"Features" of the setting that piss me off (Death resulting in no penalties at all, for example)>Complete the Automaton's quest, on the plane that would take us off the island>The NPC we found along the way goes to refuel the automaton>Rolls a nat1 on the check>The automaton breaks, my character essentially goes berserk>A few rounds later, after some severely fudged combat, I end up dying, they dump me over the side into the ocean>I successfully stabilizeI like to imagine that I survived that encounter, found my way back to the mainland, and murdered everyone from that party. Its not impossible, as I had a class feature that let me breath underwater basically indefinitely. I left right after that session, but from what I heard, the game collapsed anyway..

Instead, I generously gave you money from my own share, and you started this meta whining.">I pay barbarian 100 gold to watch my back just to piss of the ranger.
>>40396977Is playing a mindless murderhobo really that fun? I have someone in our group that does it. No one is ever allowed to live because "NO LOOSE ENDS."
>>40398017>>40398727Exactly what kind of story are you expecting? Anon's story seemed pretty explanatory...
Question, am I a that guy if I want to point out to the GM that he made a mistake that might have been on purpose?I'm playing in a Rogue Trader game, and I lost a total of 9 toughness over 2 critical damages as well as burned a fate point. The problem is, that on the first critical damage (rending body 8), the options were to lose toughness OR die, and he made me take both since I burned a fate point to avoid death. The next time (impact body 7) I was supposed to take fatigue damage and instead took permanent toughness damage, as well as another player (impact body 8) took permanent toughness damage. The thing that bothers me is that we're playing a rogue trader game, but he's using the only war rulebook for a lot of things, such as critical damage and talent. Are the rules the same, or are they different. If they are different, why not use the rogue trader rules since we are player a rogue trader game with rogue trader characters?

If I know the DM isn't the type to keep track of every player's statistics constantly, i'll make small fudges with my character. 1 more spell known than I should have, i'll "forget" to mark a spell slot as used for the day, that sort of thing.
>Game of PF>Character is capricious, greedy, and has the moral values of what you'd expect from a 2000 year old CN undead>Horde mountains of pointless objects>Still have enough brains to know that standing around and swiping loot out from under people is fucking gay as hell, even if it's technically in character>every time I come across a chest or some form of loot That Guy gains 1000 mph movement speed in an instant and is always over my shoulder despite being multiple rooms over behind several walls>Will only "allow" me to take the loot if it's something he's not personally interested in>Will otherwise reflex to grab it from my hands>That guy is playing a LN monk>come across a trapped and locked chest>unlock chest and send private message to DM that I only disabled the lock and not the trap>Call monk over to come look at it>It fucking explodes, monk still manages to save because he has a billion reflex somehow>Roll attack while he's still mid-dodge, land a crit and cut him in half>player spent half an hour trying to tell the DM that's bullshit and not possible

I think I'm about to become That Guy and it's not even intentional.>DM is running Princes of the Apocalypse>want to be a Dwarven luchador>can't stop myself from playing a refined and intelligent Fighter as is my norm though>decide on the backstory of a Dwarf of a noble clan who ditched his responsibilities to pursue his true love (masked wrestling) and everything went to shit while he was away>is now adventuring around hoping to find something in Dwarven ruins that can help restore his clan's honor, but obviously never tells anyone this because he's always in his luchador persona>character's bizarre plans always work handily and to the group's benefit>constantly resolve several quests at once with insane strokes of luck>fortuitously hit sidequests in just the right order to uncover clues to the location of Dwarf King's tomb and how to acquire the keys, often without anyone else in the party understanding>character looks like he just magically knows where every secret compartment is related to this stuff or the combination to ancient Dwarf locks>wind up with a fucking +3 shapeshifting weapon that doubles as a key to the ancient Dwarf kingdom and marks its wielder as the true King>just hit level 7Like, I'm not planning this shit, but the stars have aligned to make this character seem far more impressive, important, and intelligent than he is. And there's also all these fucking Dwarven golems we keep running into, including one under our keep (which we stole from a cult and renovated, in lieu of the shitty wagonyard the adventure normally gives you for an HQ) and two in the tomb we're currently at, that seem to be keyed by the weapon. I fully expect to begin the next session by activating two giant stone juggernauts and marching them around the countryside while everyone else diddles their butthole.Thank god for the other Fighter having the world's best rolls and being a nigh-unkillable demigod as a result. I'd look way shittier if they weren't so OP.
My groups fighter is bragging about being 1 level higher than the rest of us via sucking of DM cockBitch pissed me off so much that last combat I 'accidentally' cast fireball twice (sorcery points) and 1-shot her, then proceeded to kill everything she was fighting
>>40401556I got your next character art for ya
>>40401556> Schizophrenic Pilot > Can actually talk to the dead> group just think he is nuts> Actually just Catatonic> Group treats him like shit, even though he is a really nice guy, who just wants to help out.> Gets advanced warning from Gm (Via the dead) that the Commissioner has been converted and the meeting with him is a trap.> Arrive at scene> Group forces him to stay and watch the car (Taking all the guns & Car keys with them)> Sick of these pricks, don't warn them, Hotwire car and leave before shit goes down.> They all get killed by Mob of Genetically modified Bees.> "Bet that stings"
>>40394022>>40401702WELL GOOD, Glad you guys agree. The players who are now rolling up new murderhobos are not so happy.>>40394242The Goddess of death is like an old witch/hag, totally nasty. And I'm a beautiful elf maiden. Gotta keep my virginity so I can take Leadership and get a unicorn in a few levels. So There was no sex between myself and the death goddess.
>Be a CN human rogue>The DM goes full "something from the heavens crashed on a farmland event">Inspect the crash site with the party. It's a meteorite.>Party shrugs it off and walks away, "The end of times is close, meteorites are common these days".>I want to inspect it further.>DM says black goo comes out of it and gets into my skin.>Shit man>Feel alright, inspect myself, nothing changed.>Return to the party, say nothing.>Wake up that night, the goo has covered me and gave me a new set of maws, claws and talons.>Hear myself saying we hunger.>Realize that GM just took venom from spider-man and placed it into his medieval fantasy setting.>Go out for a hunt.>Eat a deer whole, still hungry.>Eat many animals, still hungry, only their heads give me any satisfaction.>I get it, need the brainz.>See the TN halfling tent. He's known for dissappearing for long periods of time.>No one will miss him.>He's asleep and defenseless.>RIP Bilbo wannabe>No longer hungry, go to sleep.>Wake up normal "Oh look the halfling is gone again".>Every night turn into Venomwannabe.>The greatest larty foe comes from within.
>>40400345I like the part where you cause people pain.
>>40386933That Guy would roll such a character in the first place, despite it being an obvious pain in the ass for everyone else. Saving grace is that anon recognized it as a terrible idea afterwards and presumably doens't roll those sorts of characters anymore.
>actually autistic>pace uncontrollably when imagination is captured>have to be called back to the table when its my turn and I'm making everyone nervousI'm so sorry.
>>40403417Your GM loves your character, and likes you as a player.
>>40408824>rolldid you even read it? I said that I was forced to play that character because of high corruption
>>40385247i made an op as fuck psionic warrior and basically decided to bend the rule so fucking hard it didnt even resemble the base class because I hated my dm. Oneshoted his stupid dmpc's and boss but he fiated it that they got away and told me to quit it. So i left and told him to fellate his former characters to someone else. I just wanted to piss him off because this guy was so bad at even roleplay let alone story building, character building, and dm'ing in general it was insane. Im glad he doesnt dm anymore because otherwise i would feed his players the most broken jank possible behind the scenes to ruin his games constantly.
>>40409834That was his point. You weren't that guy because you didn't make a character like that on purpose.
>>40398397That's pretty sweet actually,you conned a guy into getting more than you had before.
>>40401055All pens are inanimate objects
>>40406987You don't lose you're virginity when two girls have sex, anon. Don't you read yuri?
>>40409915Iunno, fiating away a broken ass character played by an malicious player seems pretty legit. You made cheese, the GM used rule 0 to invalidate said cheese for everyone else's benefit and tried to talk it out with you.But no, you're That Guy. It was all about you imagining yourself to be some sort of manipulative genius instead of him just not wanting to GM for some prick. He probably does still GM, it's just that no one invites you.
>>40411282he actually doesntbut its because his work schedule is rediculous
>short campaign>DM says it's open to all alignments>basically play as Bonhart>defeat a dark elf miniboss>he's male so I figure I can go for a reference without getting weird>take him alive to sell to the slavers in town>they don't want him because he's too dangerous>long story short I free the dark elf and he kills the slavers and tries to escape>capture him again and say "no matter what [mini-boss], you will always be my bitch."That's when everything turned up to 11.
>>40411765bump for story
>>40411663You're still a twat worse than the DM.You weren't screwing over the DM, you were fucking over the other players who came to have a good time.
