It's one thing to metagame, but to get it wrong too? The pitiful thing is he usually doesn't even realize when he's metagaming; like he forgets that we're roleplaying characters, not controlling pieces on a board game. Has anybody else ever been this forgetful/inattentive? He wasn't even doing anything else. I've got trouble wrapping my head around it and I have adhd; it's like he's skimming real life.

>Rolling for stats
>Not playing 100% perfectly to stats after rolling for stats

What's the point in rolling for stats if you don't even use the stats for anything but number crunching value?

Hey /tg/

I'm bored at work and just finished running through the fanfic updates I was behind on, and I find myself without anything to read whilst I sit at my desk.
Would anyone have some good fanfic or story recommendations?

I've enjoyed things like Harry Potter and The Methods of Rationality, Worm and some of its fanfic crossovers (the Warframe one is amusing so far), Aeon Natum Engel, Dungeon Keeper Amy, and other odd crossovers like Cast In Gold (Evangelion/Exalted).

Any suggestions?

Jump #24 Swords & Sorcery
Location: The Land Of Steel
Age: 33
Origin: Drop In

To Truly Live (50)- Live the life in HD.
A Well Traveled Road (100)- The joy of travel.
Born To Be Mighty (200)- When in Ro- I mean Gaul...
The Charm Of Rogues (300)- Like Ol' Captain Jack Sparrow.
Call to Greatness (450)- It knows where you jump.
Lost And Forgotten (600)- One more adventure waiting around another bend...
The Heart Of Man (900)- Tourist, spymaster, fixer or maker of problems and more uses besides.
The Making Of Myth (1200)- To leave my footprints deep in the bones of the worlds I walk.
Grandeur and Allure (1600)- Vanity intensifies.

A Wanderer's Cloak (0)- Handy.

A Weak Heart (+100)- I must be brave...
The Nail That Sticks Up (+200)- ...despite all the slings and arrows of the world....
The Plaything of Your Betters (+300)- ...and the whims of cruel gods.

Some are born to bravery, and others must grow into it. Others still must grow up even earlier than most. I'm not a hero or any great legend, but perhaps I'll fill into these shoes before they trip me up. Until then I'm going to keep walking the world and see what good it holds. I imagine I'm going to see enough of the bad with less effort.

Pic related. According to Worm it's what will happen when I combine Call to Greatness, Lost and Forgotten, and Dowsing from TES.
