My first GM was like that. We'd show up a bit early to do our usual social interaction before the game, he'd realize he had nothing written up.

He'd go outside, smoke up, eat a Mr. Big, and come back with an entire 8 hour session that was entertaining and still pertinent to his story theme.

okay now that's just dickish, I mean most people who play RPGs have a certain 'comfort zone' when it comes to character archetypes, or classes, and that's fine, so long as the character is not a complete carbon-copy of the last one you shouldn't be pushing people out of that comfort zone, at least not like that, though if the player wants to play something outside his comfort zone then go ahead and encourage it, but don't force them against their will, which is what this GM is essentially doing!

One of my favorite tabletop podcasts turned into that crap when the previous DM's game which was basically an hour of pure comedy as the worst possible group of chaotic PCs romp across and inevitably destroy what it is that the DM had constructed fizzled out, and then the new DM turned it into babby's first antihero 90s game where everyone is a literal pile of shit, everything has an undercurrent of ~real world politics~ and the more super speshul your character concept is, the higher priority you get.

You have a DM, who is the narrator and keeper of the rules, and the players, who are the main characters of the narrator's story. In what insane reasoning would 2 narrators sound like a thing that even exists, let alone a good idea at that.

Oh, but it did happen. After about 8 sessions and 20+ combat encounters the players asked him when they were going to gain a level. His response was something around the lines of "A level should take a lot of time and practice to gain, I can't see a character gaining one in less than six months in-game."

He never gave us experience, we just fought increasingly tough monsters because his idea of 'ramping up the tension' was throwing CR 8s at our level 4 party (3 members) and watching us get nearly killed, then having his DMPC swoop in effortlessly and save the day, only to berate us for not being stronger.

Did I mention the villain was a level 14+ Sorcerer who enjoyed Greater Teleporting to our location every other session and chatting with us about how we were totally inadvertently helping her plan to do 'something evil'? And that the GM railroading meant we couldn't choose NOT to follow her cunning master plan?

One time in shadowrun, we went to go check out an apartment that wanted after saving up from runs and day jobs. Two thugs opened up on us through the door, in a 50,000 a month apartment.

We never even figured out what the hell the fanfiction was all about. Granted there were a couple of hints that the Mysterious Woman was some ancient evil cleric who got sent to hell and somehow dragged herself out (with a dose of amnesia to boot), and there were a couple of strange blue stones we were finding in some of the dungeons that made people go crazy if they touched them directly for too long, but it was all a lot of Cryptic Bullshit at the end of the day.

You're probably wondering why I stuck with the game for so long. It basically boils down to:
1) There are very, very few gamers in my area
2) I was going through a pretty rough patch of my life and needed a distraction from the shit going on around me
3) The Ninja guy and Monk girl were my only friends at the time

I've lost contact with Ninja guy, he's cool but it's been years now. Monk girl and I regularly talk, she sometimes plays in games with me but the fact that she prefers to hang out with our old GM instead of me is a slap in the face whenever I think about it. I did my best to get the GM blacklisted from every FLGS in the region (not that many really) but it's been long enough for people to forget and I no longer visit those places.

What can I say, I'm kind of a petty asshole when I want to be. He was a colossal prick so I leveraged what little influence I had (I ran one-shots of new systems to entice players to buy the books at the store) and the most I got was they didn't want him advertising his games on their bulletin board. Not much but it sent a message. He was never banned though, he played Counter-Strike or some bullshit in the computer section twice a week so he made them money as well.

I didn't find another stable (more than 3 sessions) tabletop group for, oh, about 3 years. I play on roll20 these days for that reason, there's just nothing worthwhile in my area.

Railroading was necessary for him because he'd planned out the 'set-pieces' of the campaign. Case and point, we stop in a town for supplies and find out there are gypsies outside town. Then one of them goes missing and another is on trial for murder. We want to keep moving because of the assassins on our trail but the asshole INSISTS that we defend the gypsy because she says she didn't do it and therefore BUT THOU MUST DEFEND THE INNOCENT.

He runs games to this day. As for his writing, he once spent 30+ minutes telling me a book he was writing about two female lions (not anthro lions, just... lions) who ate gazelle and chatted about stuff and also love quadrangles with other lions and apparently lesbian lion sex came up a few times.

For clarification, the campaign we were in was Eberron-based. The lion-sex-thing was apparently set in either present-day Africa, or in some kind of strange post-apocalyptic version of Africa.

Podcast is sort of the wrong word for it, but it's the closest I could think of.
It's "Let's Play D&D 4E" from the Something Awful forums. Google should come up with it as the first result, despite the name it is basically just a podcast of a campaign and not really much a Let's Play at all. It eventually fizzled out because of a variety of reasons, and was more or less replaced by a 13th Age campaign DMed by one of the players from the previous group, with a much more serious tone.

"Serious," mind you, meaning he literally threw a moral choice at the party to A: Aid literal roadside bandits in stealing from a shipment from the Empire or B: Assist the Empire and letting them transport a shipment of weapons so they could subjugate the wastelands who wish to remain independent.

I don't want to be the GM to start the "no phones/laptops/gameboys at the table" rule, but all things are pointing in that direction lately.

Worst thing is when my players say combat takes too long. Meanwhile, after their turn they go back to browsing the internet and don't pay any attention to what's happening. Every turn is me telling a player what just happened in the last two turns.

I really think it's a good idea to rule out distractions around the table. Honestly, if the players can't keep their attention on the table, ask them why they're even there.

And forget roleplay, as everyone we meet is either completely fucking useless, mean and intentionally unhelpful, or just generally annoying. And they all treat our PCs like idiots for no reason.

Ultimately I guess it's a balance of making sure everyone is attentive to the situation, but allowing time for decision making and troubleshooting in combat.

I've been a backseat GM. My friend who was gm'ing at the time gave our party basically bomb rocks. Then he would throw waves of enemies, we would throw the rock, and he would say they all died, without any roles. This was a system where even the most fragile of things would require a solid hit to one shot, and these by all accounts were soldiers. I expressed my incredulity at the fact he gave us such ridiculously powerful things for no reason and suggested that he actually bother statting his item, or even his enemies, and the rest of the group said that it was his setting (this was OC, so not even an item that was statted in the rules, despite there being many explosives) so that he could make what he wanted.

Fucking this. Me and one other player in my long standing group bother DOING anything outside of combat, we are the only ones making decisions. We rotate DM's every so often, so in the times where only one of us is in the party, it always falls to us to advance the story. I try to avoid this, by saying at the end of every narrative piece, "What do you want to do" before they have time to argue.
I remember one game where this friend was gm, we run in to a group of strangely armed people in a war-zone city. I am playing a no nonsense no risks military guy, so I say, "I'd like to shoot them on sight". Cue 20 minutes later I am trying to convince the group that this is in character for my guy and probably the smartest thing to do anyway.

My GM has a weird view of things. I'm not really sure if it's a problem, but it just seems to be a very negative view of the world in general. I'll elaborate:

> All orcish/goblinoid races are utterly evil and irredeemable.
> All demons and devils are completely evil, and can never grow beyond their nature. If they appear to be making an attempt, it's a lie every time.
> Good and Neutral characters can do a lot of dickish things, as long as it can be justified by their personal moral code.
> The divine right of Kings is a thing, and it can't be shaken.
> If the rules say 'only an elf can use this', only an elf can use it. No exceptions.
> Half-breeds don't 'count' as members of the other race, because their bloodline is too diluted.
> All half-orcs are the product of savage rape.
> Paladins exist to slay evil, and lean towards 'total asshole' instead of 'nice guy'.
> No hypocrisy in fantasy religion. Everyone's a true believer.

The second-last one kind of rubs me the wrong way, for some reason. A recurring antagonist was this total fuckwad of a knight, who was staunchly and openly racist and sexist, looked down on everyone who wasn't part of his religion, was downright suspicious of arcane magic, and otherwise loathed all the 'lesser races'.

He was still Lawful Good, and was completely without cynicism. He died while singlehandedly holding off an army.

I may not be describing this correctly, but everything seems like such a downer. When my uber-charismatic Rogue tried to talk the BBEG's Sorceress out of continuing the ritual that would end the world, she said:

> "I've come too far to turn back."

and went ahead and did it anyway. Everyone who worked for the bad guys, even the sympathetic ones, were basically hunted down and culled en masse.

Sure, we were the heroes, but the whole thing just generally left a very bad taste in my mouth. I don't like that the obviously telegraphed assholes were in the right, instead of being wrong.

>Half-breeds don't 'count' as members of the other race
This is true. The rules for a half-breed specifically state what traits of the parent race/s they adopt, such as half-elves still needing some sleep but sleeping slightly less than normal humans.
>half-orcs are the product of savage rape
It depends. If orcs are the monstrous savage bloodlusty rapefiends as they are in some settings, then yeah, it's not too common for a human to meet an orc at an ice cream social and 'click.'

Yeah, it felt weird to me. Like, when we found this cult that was secretly sacrificing people to stop the Lurker Below from awakening, it turned out that they were REALLY making the sacrifices to stop it from awakening. They weren't doing it for kicks or personal power, it really was a threat.

As for Paladins, I'm not sure how to describe it. My GM's Paladins are more like engines of destruction. They aren't very personable, they don't really care much about other people, and they just go out and find evil and kill it.

Like, there's this sneering sense of supremacy to them. "My God has blessed me with his holy powers, so I'm better than you. Even if you're physically stronger, I'm still a better person. God told me so."

It's unfortunate that that's the norm and there aren't really any examples in his setting of paladins that are contrary to that, but it kind of makes sense.

And in that sense, if their attitude is 'I am better and you are a dirty fucking heathen cuz god said so' well, then there is your hypocrisy, because I doubt that every god for every paladin is like...picking and choosing what lives are more valuable and worthy of bestowing gifts upon.

This is the kind of thing that annoys me. We ventured into a graveyard while tracking down a vampire lord, and it turned out that he was planning to defile the crypt of a saint who had an artifact sword.

So we visit the crypt, and we're confronted by the ghostly guardians, and they refuse to let us pass because none of us are the chosen one. We point out that we're trying to stop the placed from being defiled by fucking Barrow from Salem's Lot, and they still refuse to let us pass, because none of us are the Chosen One.

So we ask how does someone become the Chosen One, and we're told that it's impossible. Either you are, or you aren't. You can't qualify for the position. When we eventually got near the sword, it refused to budge no matter what. The GM told us that:

It depends on the setting of course, but let's go with FR

>All orcs etc
This is true. They are Evil creatures by their nature, and Evil and Good are tangible forces.
>All demons and devils
Also completely true, since they are more a force of the universe with a personality attached, than people
>Good and neutral
Yes and no, a personal moral code is not enough, as Good and Evil are tangible forces, though it takes more than one step off the beaten path to become evil
>The divine right of Kings
It actually is, if you put any weight in Siamorphe
>If the rules say only an elf can use this
Well, yes. That's why they're the rules. There are, in fact, magical artifacts enchanted in such a way that they reject other races, or even other people (Moonblades come to mind)
>Half-breeds don't count
True again, there are mechanics in place specifically for these half-breeds -because- they don't count as members of a race. Fluffwise, it'll depend on the people around them, but most races don't view halfers as their own kin
>All half-orcs
Given that all orcs are Evil in this setting, there's a good chance of that being true, unless the mother was Evil and had some serious issues
>Paladins exist to slay evil
Bullshit. Look at Paladins of Sune.
>Everyone's a true believer

It's more that it feels really reductionist to me. You know, like there were never any real exceptions, and we couldn't really appeal to anyone's better nature.

The campaign ended with the triumph of Good over Evil, but it's the kind of triumph which means that the Good people kill off the Evil ones as naturally and without thought the way you'd kill an insect. Again, I'm not really sure how to describe it, but it felt that there was a refusal to allow ambiguity to enter the question.

We did manage to convince one of two lesser minions to surrender, for example, but after their arrest they were swiftly put to death. No question about "Give them a second chance." or "Lock them in jail." it was just "We find you guilty. Take them out and behead them, then burn their bodies."

Like: "Of course they're evil. They're *orcs*!" and they really do turn out to be evil. And "Don't listen to anything a demon says. They're all diabolical liars." and every last one of them was indeed raw Evil.

There was one scene where we found a Paladin protecting a looter from an angry mob, and immediately after he'd got the man clear, he cut off the man's hand. Because the penalty for looting in times of siege is the loss of a limb, not lynching. It was just depressing; Shouldn't the good guys be, you know, held to a higher standard of things?

Sounds very genre appropriate. There's not a lot of middle ground in "medival" fantasy because the time period is pretty straight forward on that. If you capture a bandit, he goes on trial. If he is found guilty he hangs.

Orcs and Demon's being evil is the result of the melding of old Christian morals that result from shooting for an Arthurian feel. Demons are evil because god says they are, a good man does not question god.

The thing with the mob is literally how that shit went down back in the day.

The main issue you're having is that you and the DM want to play different games. He's taking a fantasy world and playing it straight as if it were historical fiction, while you would like to play something a lot lighter.

My DM just had an NPC throw a Geas on a player for violating the city's laws by trying to cast a spell on a shopkeeper. It had about seven vague instructions, including "don't violate any more of our laws", "be a spy for the Hell Knights", and "bring half of all the loot/treasure you acquire back to the hell knights", among others. It also apparently lasts forever.

When I called him on it in a Facebook message, he just ass pulled "it's a custom spell for this character. I wanted to punish him without killing him."

All because the PC, a witch, attempted to Sow Thought into a shopkeeper to improve his favor. Then the whole town hive minded and all guards everywhere were aware of the crime, and he was sent to trial.

It bugged me especially because the way he was talking to the PC, supposedly in character, was the same way he talks to his five year old when he's scolding him.

While you should be able to appeal to many a NPC's better nature, monster races have no business being on the list of creatures you try that with, let alone embodiments of Evil

Anything of the standard and halfer races (including tieflings) should be fair game, though.

You have to have something worthwhile to convince them, though.
Just saying "you really don't want to end the world" and rolling for persuasion isn't going to cut it, especially if that NPC really does want to end the world. Even if you roll 20.

Jail, or trial or whatever will depend on the paladin as well.
One of Hoar, for instance, wouldn't give a shit. If it's one of Tyr or Torm, however, that's really bad form.

As for expecting to be able to find non evil orcs, well... As they are in vanilla FR, it just doesn't happen. You're trying to see a humanity there that just isn't there. Yes, they're intelligent. Yes, they have personalities. Yes, they have hopes, dreams and aspirations. They're not human, however, and there's no reason to assume they ever would be good.

I kinda sympathise with you a bit more than the others in this thread, imo it's sorta like someone's made their vision of a just, utopian society, but they weren't very good at writing it and it seems uncomfortably dystopian, not unlike reading a chick tract or sonichu. The arbitrarily irredeemable nature of evil and the somewhat arbitrary nature of good in this setting's something that comes to mind, but what sticks out in my mind imo is the stance on monarchy and aristocracy. Divine right of kings in real life led to a lot of monarchs being a little detached from reality, and it was awfully common and almost accepted for aristocracy to have secret or not so secret lovers. The complete sincerity and no unfaithful worshipers thing combined with the divine right of kings thing just feels really off in my mind.

To be completely fair to the GM, he didn't depict it as particularly right. It was just the way things were, which is why I felt that the bad guys were pretty sympathetic.

The thing about the SoT is that, at least for the first few arcs, the creepy/weird/insane/political shit was pretty disconnected from the rest of the story, and the rest was pretty cool.
The tv series cut out most of the weird shit but it also cut out a lot of the cool shit too.
Like the sword essentially being a lightsaber, the actual power of subtractive magic (shit's cray), a fucking awesome dragon, the origin of wizard sand and why it's so rare, etc...

your right, though I personally have a hard time imagining a demon or devil not wanting to do evil.

mostly its because depending on the lore, I don't see a lot in their backstories to compel them to change their ways.

>the twisted and damned souls of once evil people.
yeah they were murderers, rapists, and psychopaths in life, what reason would compel them now that their demons that could convince them to change their ways that wasn't allready tried when they were alive?

>fallen angels.
angels are supposed to be absolute good, that means a breakdown of limits and barriers which is why when they fall, they fall all the way down and become absolute evil. on top of that, I believe in Milton's story the rebellious angels did so over humans, so its not hard to imagine that the fallen angels have, on top of everything else, a deep hatred and resentment toward humans, blaming them for being cast out of heaven. Not a lot of motivation for them to change their ways.

I Believe you when you say you felt uncomfortable, but I think you are communicating it right. And that's no mark against you, sometimes its really hard to convey to someone why you think that way when it may not be any specific thing but its almost on a subconscious or even instinctual level that you feel something is 'off'. something doesn't feel right but you can't pin down what exactly.

It may not be that the paladin's actions in and of themselves were wrong necessarily, but that there was a certain callous or even diabolical tone or attitude that just felt unsettling about the ordeal.

You can check out the community's forums at /taconbanana.com - should find a fair amount of bullshit there. I stopped playing around the time their Half-Life 2 server died but they still have a Stalker server which is almost as bad; almost because it lacks all the over-attached oldfags that kept trying their luck at playing a miniaturized version of Game of Thrones.

As for details, uh... lemme see what I can come up with. Suppose I could start with the BBEG faction, a vaguely fascist paramilitary police force. Pic related. It wasn't all bad but there were lots of self-inserts and /pol/acks. Then there also was the external intelligence division:
>theoretically open to all qualified applicants but only accepted females
>lesbian or bisexual (but not straight) females
>blood fetish optional, but every other fucking character in the division had issues like that

They were supposed to deploy in areas held by rebel forces, infiltrate their organizations and sabotage them from within. They also were completely terrible at it. Like, they just showed up out of nowhere, heavily armed, then tried to get "in" by cybering important people. Rebel counterintelligence basically was to round up every overtly lesbian character ever and it worked - at least until aforementioned important people stepped in because their cyber started drying up.
