More of a That Group (and yes, I'm aware that if you think everyone's That Guy, you're probably That Guy), but I've encountered some of the dumbest murderhobos in my life recently. Last week's session had the highlight of

>After doing quest for city's government, relax and hit some bars and spend some of their newfound loot on booze and wenches.
>Decide to rob the tavernkeeper
>Wait until most people are insensate from drink, and then press a knife to his neck
>Force him to open his cellars, and then knock him out.
>I hadn't statted it out, and just say that there's a lot of containers of various alcohols that he serves, as well as a crate for some of the food.
>Cue in whining.
>What the fuck, we're 11th level characters, we shouldn't have to go through all of that for some booze.
>Curse me out for being a shit GM, and session ends early.

I joined a Death Watch game which was plagued by multiple That Guys. I swear the poor Gm was cursed with always getting at least one THAT GUY in his games and seemed to have reached the point he just accepted his bad luck.

I knew the Gm through a mutual friend and jumped into his game as my normal game group already had 6 players and it would be getting crowded. He explained to me and the other players through an email that the game would be starting on a jungle world against orks so come prepared for that. I wrote up a Blood Angel Apothecary cause I'm a healslut and went to the GM's place for the game.

The groups consisted of the following members;
>Dude Bro: guy who looked like he spent his time bullying kids for this fucking hobby but was an alright guy though had a bad habit of rambling about 'I got so drunk...' stories. He played a Space Wolf Assault Marine (and thankfully played him more viking then furry)

>Council worker: Guy always showed up from his work in those fluro shirts and as the name implied worked on roads. Alright guy but more then one game got cancelled because he couldn't show up, was friends with dude bro and played a Dark Angels assault marine

>Pale horsemen. A thin albino dude who always seemed to have a cough, sinus problems, headache or general illness but never stopped him from showing up. Family ran a small horse stable and was actually a competent rider. Played an Imperial Fist Techmarine

>Pussy whipped: Friendly guy but holy shit, everything had to grind to a halt if his girlfriend called or texted him. His girlfriend was into Magic and often dragged him to play that. Played a Blood Angels Assault Marine

Now I wont tell you who That Guy was, that will become apparent soon but feel free to place your bets.

Immediately we hit our first problem, we had 3 assault marines but no devastators or tactical marines. Gm tried to get one of them to change to something with a bit more firepower but all three refused. Pale and myself were fine as we filled specialty roles but it was clear GM wasn't happy about this. Still he relented and let us try with our rather melee oriented team. To try and soothe Gm both Pale and myself grabbed bolters for some ranged weapons.

We get a brief history on our target planet. Ork WAAAARGH met its end here but the cleanse and burn programs were never completed so savage orks have popped up in the forests. They were just a nuisance until an ork Rok crashed onto the planet and the warboss has begun gathering the savage orks to him to start a new Klan. Unfortunately for us the warboss is smart and we cannot pinpoint his location from orbit so we will have to go down to the planet and try and get local intel to try and pinpoint the location of the war boss and kill him. We are also told by our inquisitor handler assisting the populace is a secondary objective, the whole planet can burn as far as he cares, just get that damn Ork Boss.

We touch down in a military bse that has been weathering the worst of the ork assaults and we quickly get exposition from the commander there that the government here is retarded and greedy, that the cleanse and burn programs were discontinued by the current planetary governor and there is a civil war brewing over the incompetence of the local governor and his administration. Before we can really get into specifics (or a Commissar can appear for some 'morale support') an alarm sounds as another Ork wave is coming in so we defend the base.

The base's east wal lwas breached a few days ago so most of the attacks have been focused there. Needless to say we head straight for the breach. Pale finds some turrets offline and sets off to try and get them up and running for fire support, Dude bro, Council and Pussy go down to take the fight to the Orks while I stay with Pale to give him covering fire.

Dude and Council are playing the SW and DA rivalry as a competition to see who can kill the most Orks, Pussy whipped is doing nearnly nothing as his girlfriiend called so is on autopilot for combat. Pale manages to get a turret up which mows down the Orks and I generally just pick my shots and occasionally yell some mantra to help boost the morale of the human troops nearby. We push the assualt back and discover the orks attacking were all savage, bone and rock weapons with no ranged weapons in sight. We also find one savage Ork alive and wounded and decide lets see if he knows anything. At this point however Pussy whipped is off his phone and, annoyed he didn't get to rp much during the fight, loudly declares "Suffer not the alien to live!" and kills the ork before we can question it. Cue a sigh from GM who just had his important plot point giving NPC murdered by an overzealous idiot. We aren't overly happy about Pussy going full Black Templar and head back to the base commander who the Gm uses as our plot giver, saying the first place to get hit was a communications relay out in the forest. The guy in charge there was apparently pretty big on recording everything so we may find some logs that will help us (hint hint, nudge nudge fucking go there for the plot).

We call in our transport, gear up and head out to where the relay is, believing the orks lack any decent anti-air to pose a threat to our transport.

We touch down at the relay and find what you would expect. Socrch marks, bullet holes, dead bodies and other indicators something big happened here. We quickly agree we need to keep Pale alive and well as knowing orks they probably trashed the place and we will need some repairs done. We slowly make our way into the facility, taking note of the signs of battle and damage to the facility.

As we get deeper our xeno-sense starts tingling and we located a dead ork Kommando and realize what we just walked into. Que ork ambush in tightly packed corridors. Unfortunately for them we had Dude and Council in the front and Pussy in the back who proceeded to show why you don't bring a gun to a melee fight.

We fight our way to the main control room and find our first miniboss, and Ork Kommando leader who is setting demo charges to take the relay down. Dude charges to melee...and promptly triggers a trip wire at the door knocking him on his ass and causing a bit of damage. Council quickly decides to try and have them come to us and sets up against the wall, trying to goad the orks into coming to him. Pussy has a better idea; lob a few grenades into the room....the room filled with delicate systems we need to access the logs, and where demo charges are set up where Dude now lays wounded and in need of aid.

Gm is clearly exasperated as he explains the grenade has damaged the enemies but also the computers we needed to access. Thankfully the demo charges don't go off and Pale and I use our turns to pop in and unload our bolters into the surviving Ork boss, Pale landing the killing blow which pissed Pussy off because he wanted to kill the boss by himself. We tell him to shut up, especially Dude who had to burn a fate point to stay hanging by a thread so I can patch his ass up.

Pale managed to retrieve some severely damaged logs from the grenade fragmented data banks and discovered the relay actually recorded an SOS signal from a jungle patrol unit near one of the major rivers through the jungle, mentioning a very large ork was with them. Pale also discovers some logs haven't been damaged but instead deleted on the same day the relay was attacked, meaning someone here had something to hide. We also discover that according to the staff records we are short about 10 dead staff, including the guy who was all about keeping logs. Suspecting this may have something to do with the civil unrest that has occurred we relay it to the Inquisitor and head back to base.

We use local maps to pinpoint the location the patrol had spotted the 'big ork' and discover it is also likely the location the assualts on the base are coming from. We all sit down and discuss what to do. Pussy wants to charge in, Dude and Council want to have some air strikes to soften the target up, Pale and I want to wait until the next assault and attack the camp from the back. Eventually Council and Dude come around to our way of thinking but Pussy is adamant Space Marines would just charge in. However Due cannot come with us, his character is pretty badly injured and GM decides to end the session there telling Dude to make a temporary character as a replacement for the next game.

When next game rolls around Dude shows up with his new character, an Ultramarine scout. Our plan is simple, wait for the orks to launch an attack on the base and use that as our chance to enter the enemy camp. Pale, Pussy, Council and I will cause a lot of noise to draw out the war boss, Dude will stay back and assassinate the boss the moment he stick his head into Dude's sniper scope. What could possibly go wrong?...EVERYTHING!

This plan was under an ill omen from the fucking start with the first role of the game being a nat 100 with Council trying to give a speech to the base personal to improve there morale at the impending ork assault. What was supposed to be a rousing speech about fighting the aliens and dying in glory for the Emperor became 'you are all going to die, please try not to die too fast because we have shit we need to do'.

So leaving the base with crumbling morale to the Commissar we board our transport and plan to drop in near the enemy base to draw their attention while the transport drops Dude off at a separate location for a more stealthy entry. Our ship draws some light enemy fire, which is good, we want them after us...but Pussy decides he aint sitting in no ship anymore and jumps out with his jetpack on, leaving us just staring at him as we realize Pussy has gone full retard. Our ship has to turn back so we can go reinforce him but by that point Pussy has taken a few hits and getting overrun. We quickly set down and the others cover me while i rush out to drag his stupid ass back onto the ship. All the while Pussy is complaining that we didn't jump out with him (none of us had jump packs) that we should have covered him (he didn't tell us what he was doing before hand) and now the plan was ruined as he was injured (he ruined the plan by jumping out of the transport). Whats more our little turn around and hover has given the orks time to gather their rocket launchers and fire. Our transport takes a ht and despite Pale doing his best our ship goes down hard, wounding all of us and nearly killing Pussy (saved by a fate point).

We may be alive, but we are all injured, alone in Ork territory and with no reinforcements on the way with the Ork horde closing in. Oh and dude is nearly dead again from the crash, thanks Pussy.

So our situation is as follows;
Pussy nearly dead, Dude severely injured from the crash, all of us having minor injuries, no back up and a pissed of ork horde on its ways. Our one saving grace is we crashed near the Ork camp, so we can possibly finish our mission.

Pale decides he is gonan take one for the team and stay with the transport. He plans to rig up the ships guns to work as automated turrets and draw the horde towards him. When he gets over run he will overload the engines and detonate a demo charge to take as much of the horde with hi mas he can as he will not let the ship fall into Xeno's hands. We suggest Pussy should stay back as well as he is already nearly dead and having an assault may buy some more time but Pussy refuses to stay, believing his half dead carcass will actually 'help' us by going to the camp.

GM actually had Pale play out his last stand and that bastard managed to rack up quite the body count, running out of bolter ammo, then turret ammo and finally bolt pistol rounds before he got overrun taking out a sizeable portion of the horde when he an heroed in a glorious explosion of jet fuel. GM ruled the explosion was so large the base under ork assault saw it and decided it was use causing trouble for the Orks, motivating them to fight harder.

Our surviving team moved towards the camp wide, trying to flank and adopting a pure non-engagement policy so we could reach the camp or at least get as close as possible. Despite the utter ballsing up Pussy had done the plan was the same, we make as much noise in the camp as we can to draw out the boss, Dude takes the shot.

We reach the camp and Due sets up in a tree for a good vantage point as Pussy, COuncil and I metal gear solid our way into the camp. We decide the best way to cause trouble is to take out the ork vehicles and ammo dump so Council and I take the vehicles while pussy goes for the dump.

This girl in our group decides to play a warlock, who is a psychopathic killer, in a very poorly done open world d and d game by a first-time gm. Granted most of our characters where evil in some way, hers was just way too over the top.
The first session that our group met she was subtle about who her character was and what she was doing. She was being like a normal evil character and trying to hide her terrible actions. Towards the end of that session though, when we were in the middle of the woods, she started to perform blood sacrifices of fallen bandits we just fought, to try and summon death. We should have seen this and been like no stop it, but at the time we thought whatever were evil anyway who cares about.
After that, she starts to murder random npcs anywhere anytime and for no reason other than to summon death. She slays hookers, leads children out into the forest, all kinds of just stupid shit over and over. And the gm allows all of this to happen without any real difficulty (no npcs fighting back, npcs using logic or common sense, or guards even investigating the murders). She gets out of every situation by persuasion checks, thanks warlocks for having high charisma! In fact, the gm rewards her by making her sacrifices cause bonuses to her abilities and magic damage.
So, the sacrifices continue and her powers get stronger and she becomes bolder in slaughtering people in the streets and in public. She summons demons from a mine town and killers all the miners. She kills random travelers on the road which turns the sky red for the night and gave her ridiculous power boost.

Our monk lost his leg in combat so we had to try and save his life by taking him to the nearest hospital. We got there just in time and he was in a coma for a bit. While in town she has the brilliant idea to sacrifice out monk to get a mega power boost. Long story short a huge fight ensues in the monk’s hospital room causing the whole hospital to collapse and killing our sorcerer in the process. The monk survived. She was knocked out in the process and tried to say she shouldn’t be because the sorcerer died, luckily the gm didn’t do that. Our paladin decided to take her unconscious body in to the local authorities after knocking her out. As he’s taking her in, vigilantes come in and request he gives her to them. Our paladin is like no justice is justice and goes straight to the guards of the town. The guards then assume that the paladin knocked her out and was making up this story for some reason, idk the gm was fucking stupid with explain why all the witnesses and our statements were misunderstood by the guards to thinking she was innocent and that the paladin committed a crime. So, the paladin gets sentenced to death, for some reason, and become a broken oath paladin by losing faith in the legal system after we help him escape.

So, we go to the “final area” and start trying to take out the bbeg by amassing a cobalt army to go to an awesome battle. We start entering the castle at full health, and she is at the back leading her group of men and decides that she is going to suddenly help the bbeg and kill all of us. Obviously, this is a big mistake. She cast a fireball and eliminates all our troops and deals a shit ton of damage to us unexpectedly. Fortunately, the group is level ten, I’m a wizard, the sorcerer became a bard, the paladin is op, and the monk is the monk. So, we went fuck this shit and wanted to slay her ass. She then says to the gm she rolls to persuade us it was an accident, and the group over rides the gm and says no persuasion check for this one it fails. She start the combat and tries to kill us with another fireball, fuck you bitch, couterspell (insert giant middle finger). She goes down in two turns and our paladin grants the final blow, killing her character for good. She starts crying and the session ends early.

After she left with her boyfriend, I talked to the gm and he was like she should have stayed I was going to reincarnate her and have her be super powerful with the bbeg. I was just blown away by how much he was enabling her fucking stupidity, and he wasn’t even going after the pussy with her, he was just that fucking stupid to think that what she was doing was okay.

It was actually fun stealthing around the facility, Dude relaying enemy patrols and positions to use over the vox (and inspired a stealth based all scout squad at a later date). Council and i decided we would set our grenades to detonate in the fuel dump tanks with Pussy to do the same at the dump, the idea being to spread the orks out a bit so we had a better chance...it was a good plan which is why Pussy hated it. At the point we were supposed to detonate the nades simultaneously Pussy got a call from his girlfriend. Pussy decided instead of detonating his nades in game we should 'play out until he got off the phone'. We were fucked over by 4th wall pussy.

So now Council and I stood, asses in the wind as Ork's rushed our position. Dude is in his tree wanting to help but we tell him to not do anything as the ork think it is only us so he can still take the shot if the warboss comes out.

Council and I manage to do a good job of defending ourselves, Dude acting as a spotter for us. The whole time this is happening we keep calling out to Pussy it is his turn only for him to say "I pass" instead of detonating his fucking grenades!

Finally the GM takes pity on us and has the ork warboss come to look at what is causing all this ruckus. Dude takes the shot...and misses. He quickly burns his last fate point to fix that and manages to land a hit but not kill the boss. Dude quickly gets the fuck out of his tree as Council rushes in to engage the ork warboss in close combat as I do my best to cover Dude as he tries to re-position. Meanwhile Pussy is still passing...this has taken roughly 50 minutes, 50 minutes of Pussy on the phone 'passing' every time his turn comes up. I remember imagining a blood angel kneeling in the shadows going 'yes dear, of course dear, I'll be home before 5 dear'.

So COuncil is locked i ncombat with the Ork warboss and despite some good rolls he eventually falls, fate point burned to try and stay alive as he slips into unconciousness. It's gone tits up. Pale is dead, Dude is running, Council is nearly dead and Pussy is talkign to his girlfriend. Wel lfuck it if I'm gonna die I'm gonna follow Pales example and do it heroically.

I toss my weapon aside and pull out my combat blade and yell to the Orks that the 'Emperor is with me and I shall see you foul xenos vanquished in his name. Lord Sanguinius be with me, guide my blade so I may strike down this unholy wretch in your name. For the Emperor!'

Right as I finish my speech Dude has positioned and fires again, drilling the bolt between the ork warbosses eyes and dealing the last bit of damage needed to kill him. The orks, thinking the Emprah actually came down to help me piss bolt it out of there. We all laugh about what great timing that was out of game and I quickly have my character run over to Council to try and stabilize him. And at that glorious moment of victory Pussy comes back, and he is not happy to hear we just won while he was away.

Pussy is fucking mad that we just finished the climax of the mission while he was away. He first tries to say we should have paused until Gm points out he himself said multiple times he 'passed' his turn so if he wanted to blame someone for not puasing he should blame himself. He then said he wanted to do it over from his turn but Gm ruled no, team won fair and square and deserve the victory. Pussy then is furious to learn that squatting in an ammo dump doing nothing doesn't count as an xp worthy action and thus gets the bare minimum xp from the mission completion. It further infuriated him that as Pale played out his last stand so well his new character will get an xp boost for his previous characters bad assery.

It is the final straw for Pussy who adopts the 'dating mans defence, which is 'at least I have a girlfriend unlike you guys!'. Council is married with a kid, Dude bro has scored more chicks then he can count, even Pale has had a girlfriend. GM, politely but firmly tells Pussy to get out and not to come back until he has grown up.

Pussy never returned, we had had it with his shit and not being able to simply tell his girlfriend 'i'm busy, talk to you later'. We saw him around a bit as he lived locally and there was only one FLGS nearby. He pointedly ignored us and his girlfriend glared at use everytime she saw us (to the point she actually forfeited a magic game when I was her opponent as she refused to play against me).

Gm continued our group, Dude continued to play his sniper as he liked it more then his SW characters, Council lived and continued to fight as a DA, Pale built a Storm Warden devastator and my Apothecary lived on for two more missions before dying to a new that guy's shenanigans.

This is something i do in video games with a large degree of customization and RPG's alike, but find a character or concept you really like. That isn't superman or some other OP bullshit. things you like based on them being interesting, not powerful.

From there, try to emulate that. build the character as close as you can get, but don't be rigid. You will need to make some fluff changes. After that, when you are roleplaying, just channel that concept or character.

For example, if you've ever played an MMO as a healer, its an utterly aggravating experience with rando's. Channel that into an asshole cleric thats constantly criticizing the party's poor choices, but at the end of the day still does his job.

He's the typical kind of edgelord nerd IRL and in-game and is only ever good for fighting mobs.

His attacks against other players aren't even the chummy "fist to shoulder" kind of stuff or light slap over the head either, which sre the reason our DM even allows player attacks against each other, but instead him properly rolling shit if he's annoyed.

As in, rolling all his feats available if push comes to shove. Slapped my Gnome Wizard, that was just minutes earlier rolled over by a boulder and survived with 1 HP, using 4 potions to get back to 26, with everything he had, counting his crit fully and even tryibg to use giant slayer on his Gnome party member and primary diplomat of the group for joking about his plummet after he made fun of me failing a 10 Arcana check with a +8 bonus.

I GM for a 5 player Dark Heresy group.

It's pretty good, and they all seem to really enjoy it, the only problem is that I have two That Guys.

One of them happens to be the party leader. I guess this was my mistake, as I allowed the players to choose the leader themselves to try and help build party dynamic. He volunteered and no one seemed opposed to him leading them. But he is entirely incompetent, and extremely... Submissive. His character is always indecisive, often leading our Tech-Priest Support to "assist" him in making decisions. His major contributions to the game has just been swearing like a sailor, because swearing makes him manly, right guys? He is rarely IC and it's infuriating, because we're running a more story based game, with focus on investigation and exploring.

Our other That Guy is worse. His character is a special snowflake Psyker who refuses to wear armor or wield a gun. He only wears his cloak and uses exclusively psychics in combat. He has never once been or talked IC. Seriously, he's other not talking at all, making shitty jokes, or trying to seduce NPCs. He's also playing a girl, so that's shitty too.

Another problem is that he can never make it to games on time, or even at all. He's been 30 minutes late to sessions, left halfway through a session, and even completely blown us off. I'd kick him out, but he's not the most emotionally stable either. I want to be sympathetic to someone who's pretty nice and going through a tough time, but they're honestly such a hindrance.

I just want to take my three good players and leave.

Wait are you trying to say ray blaster caster is good?
There are far better options, if you want to murder pcs really well use spells like.
Blindness/Deafness, with a perminant duration it will fuck up pcs a lot.
Summon Spells, just summon aether elementals, permanently invisible flying, and have ranged touch attacks out to like 400 feet.
Greater Invisibility.
Hold Monster/Person/other save or suck spells.
And to make this all even better you have access to permanency which means all the protective spells can be up 100% of the time.

TLDR: drop your HD from d8 to d6, no medium armor and can't use weapons that are piercing or edged. (Cause maces are more merciful?)
Trade off: Conjuration (healing) Spells can be cast 1 spell level lower for you.

Mercy Domain: Conju(heal) are cast at +2 CL, and thighs like Lesser Restoration are a level 1 spell.
Unique feat: 5 ranks in Heal required, add Charisma Modifier to the CL of any "Cure" spell you cast.
KoK books have loads of fluff/mechanical information, like spending XP to rise in the rankings of a church, which eventually ends at your cleric becoming the not-pope. All sorts of universal and unique benefits of rising in church rankings.
LoSL: Add Wisdom modifier to damage healed from Cure spells (not damage to undead)

That's not actually true, you know. You have plenty of mentions of armed clergy using swords, off the top of my head, the mentions in the El Cid Ballads of whatshisface, Cid's personal chaplain, who would take to battle with Rodrigo with a blade.

"Clerics use blunt weapons" is something Gygax made up, apparantly after seeing the Bayeaux Tapestry and seeing Odo depicted with a mace. Chances are, he just used a mace (if he did use a mace and this isn't artistic license) because he liked maces for the same reason other secular warriors used them.

Oh, and his self-insert character (which in his setting is possible because he's an Authyr-ohGodWHYDOESITHURTSOMUCH!?!) is the new Emperor of the Star Wars Empire.
No. he didn't kill Palpatine.
He walked onto the 2nd Death Star and Palpatine was "So impressed by the impudence" that he waved off his bodyguards.
15 minutes later, after a serious discussion and a touch of mide-rape, he convinced the Emperor to abdicate and retire because he was 'speciesist' and wasn't giving non-humans a fair shake in his empire, and the silver-haired, trench-coat-wearing faggot with heterochromia (one blue eye, the other is green....yes, fucking really...)

When I post information about the next upcoming game into the group chat, I get absolutely no response from a certain player. He does this on a constant basis.

Although I try to understand that they have work. I also do get them to talk with me on rare occasion and they seem to have interest in the game.

However, at times, rather than give me an actual response to my question left in the chat over a week ago, player instead goes on literally two hours about the grinding they've been doing in FF7.

Because they haven't bothered to let me know when they're available, time that could have been spent in the tabletop game ends up being used for his achievement farming bullshit. I've even been invited to his streams and all he does is annoy himself and throw tantrums over the video games he insists on torturing himself with.

He went to Discworld.

Why? Because his avatar is

Oh my god, I forgot he pulled this shit. For anyone who doesn't read Discworld (R.I.P.

NOBODY can persuade them to join their side, not even Death (who actually is their sworn enemy for the "death and taxes" pun).

I'm saying going for straight ray blaster is the best way to kill someone in one shot. If I was lazy that'd be what I did.

Instead I took snapdragon fireworks from pathfinder, made it daze, made it chain, then made it persistent(make the save? Save again!), then took a couple DC increasing feats. I'm opening by taking away their ability to act and following up by killing them with fireballs. There's no way they're making a DC 25 save twice in a row with how poor their builds are.

My DM asked me to not use magic items, so I decided permanency was out too, or you better believe I'd have permenancy greater invis and fox's cunning up.

But yeah- if I'm using blindness/deafness(which is a great spell don't get me wrong) all I'm accomplishing is to make them less effective. Killing them is therefore more effective, since I don't have allies in this fight, just me.

I did a google, apparently Aether Elementals can't be summoned by RAW.

I would use Fly and Greater Invisibility(my first plan involved Greater Invisibility and ample use of Explosive Runes, so there's that), but I already explained my save-or-suck spell choice.

Ray casters are garbage in 99% of situations. Situations which involve just trying to kill three people as fast as possible, surprisingly, is not one of those occasions, because you take them down in 3 turns. I'm hoping to pull that off with fireball, but yeah.

Shits and giggles; keeping bumped with some of those extra cleric rules from KoK, because why not?
Merciful fates first, just cause I already got most of those out of the way. The other stuff:

Use Turn Undead to Give allies in 20ft a +CHA mod bonus to all skill checks and saves for 10 minutes
Church advancement specifics:
1: no penalty to heal checks if no Healer's kit:
2&3: Long term Care can be provided to more people, +1 per character level
>good for RP, but otherwise useless.
5: Bonus WIS Mod to Cure spells.
6: 200gp a month Stipend
7&8: 300gp a month stipend, extra Cure Light wounds available every day, and 8 gets a follower from ANY class that can cast Cure spells. (DM approval)

Interesting bit besides extras is that the unique church's have extra requirements too.
4: Need at least 10 ranks in the Heal skill
7: Need 15 ranks in Heal.
10: Can't be the merciful Fates Not-Pope if you can't cast Ressurection, on top of the generic requirements.

And for fun, Mercy Domain spells.
1: lesser restore
2: remove curse
3: remove disease
4: neutralize poison
5: dispel evil
6: restoration (greater)
7: Mass Cure serious wounds.
8: Holy Aura
9: Freedom.

As I said, he's totally allowed. I just want a character justification, in game.
And if this were true, if every fighter somehow intrinsically knew what weapons do higher damage, wouldn't that mean that entire militaries would be restructured around the best damage dealing weapons? Wouldn't their be entire armies comprised of scythemen, ready to cut down grain and men alike?

Except that fighters have training years too and are proficient with all martial weapons. You don't get proficient by knowing how to use a similar but slightly different weapon, but by learning how to use that weapon specifically. (Which is why 1-handing a bastard sword requires EWP when 1handing a longsword is basically the same thing)
The fighter already knows how to wield a scythe and is specifically proficient with it.
Just wanting a better choice because it's better is a good enough reason.

DM's Pirate Boss proceeds to knock my dick in the dirt and smack me around the deck while the other pirates and the party are occupied.

One of the minor pirates runs off and grabs the McGuffin from belowdecks on our ship and says it's time to go. DM says his pirate is going to disengage.

>By now I'm used to the DM being ThatDM, so I'm like, fuck it, I guess Pirate Boss escapes to harass us another day. But one of our newer players asks if I get to attack him as he's running away.
DM looks flustered. Finally, he says we'll treat his "retreat" as a combat maneuver. He will be using all his combat actions to "escape." I can prevent his escape if I use as many combat actions to do so. Oh, and the boss by default has +1 combat actions over my character. So, I literally can't.

>New idea dawns. Instead of trying to block him escaping... use all combat actions to simply follow him and attack him as he's running away, hoping to kill him before he can leave. Roll. Whack out the rest of his Pirate Boss's lifepoints with a mighty swing!
DM looks annoyed. He looks through the rolls. "Uhh... I based the Pirate Boss on the Berserker class, so he has Hard to Kill, which means he has +5 hitpoints than usual. So he gets away very wounded."

GM pulls rules out of his ass to save his Pet Pirate and deny an epic confrontation where my character was almost on Death's Door anyway.

The U.S. military determined that most soldiers (MOST) get more and more useless after 400 days of combat. Their effectiveness peaks at around 100-200 days of active combat, but after 350-400, their effectiveness steadily drops off because they're war weary, shell-shocked, and generally fucked beyond repair. It's why they introduced shorter tours of duty following the World Wars.

The US military has also determined human beings can't throw fireballs. Your point?

Also, records indicate that used to be higher, before we lived in an age where all violence was discouraged, and 60 years of experience isn't 60 years of fighting. If he spent 20 years as a guard, he probably only spent 5-6 days with any actual real fighting in that whole time, but spent those twenty years training. This isn't hard to understand.

Oh. Sorry. I thought we were basing it on real life. My bad.

And it did used to be higher, you're right. But I doubt the military discouraged violence. Rather, the military figured out the optimum amount of time to use a soldier.

As evidence that the military has NOT just softened up and become anti-violent, I present the Skinnerian psychological conditioning our soldiers now go through. The military found that around 90% of soldiers never fired their weapons in the direction of the enemy, so they started conditioning them to shoot at anything that moves from Korea onwards.

what I mean is that we, culturally, discourage violence. Go back a few hundred years and that was not the case.

God fucking damnit, its even worse because this was session 1, and I had it planned out for 3 people.

on the plus side, the two that showed up still had lots of fun, and the game went off without any problems.

but from your post it sounded like you guys cornered him into acting brashly. Ofc he'd try and act tough and kick the kid to make him feel less targetted.

Even barring that, it sounded like the Kid kept just stabbing the guy instead of maybe trying to plead with him once he got cornered, like any kid would do instead of fighting like bill cypher.

If the kid jept trying to reason or talk the guy into calming down, albeit in his 7 year old way, he probably would've thought twice about wanting to bash his thieving little head in.

After a certain amount of emphasis that fucking around to much would eventually prevent her from being able to be in the adventure(she's in the town guard and soooooo close to being fired), she has toned down her role playing to a slightly more manageable level that functions with the party.

No, they are gutter-snipes who are literally one theft away from some man beating them to death with the guards not giving a shit because they are shit-covered little rats. Getting violent does not a long life make in such circumstances.

On the topic of things being different


Life was a hell of a lot more violent back then. Public executions were the thing to do on a friday evening. I think that people were a bit more resilient to PTSD (because they were always like that) and more likely to take pleasure in war and murder in the past

And a child who has reached that point, a 7 year old boy, who has been abandoned, beaten with some regularity, and possibly raped (if we're talking historically), and has reached the point where he legitimately might have to murder another human being (because he starts the aggression with a theft) is going to be a very psychologically damaged child to the point that they should be broken for the rest of their miserable lives. Which means that anything the PC's do will be ultimately meaningless for a child in this state, short of a wish spell (maybe if it can rewrite some history and reverse psychological damage and legitimate brain damage from experiencing such degrees of trauma and the brain being poisoned and lesioned by the dump of cortisol). If the kid didn't have a weapon or was hesitant to use it, that would have been a sign that the kid wasn't too far gone. You might cite that this kid was under extreme stress and fear, and that is exactly my point. That is the entirety of this child life, and is like dropping a boulder on a sapling. If it grows, it will grow in distorted, twisted ways. It was a poor choice for the DM to incorporate this child in the state that he rp'ed the child in.

I think we agree, though. Party fucked up, Player fucked up, DM fucked up.

>> No.50126744

Yeah, we pretty much agree.

>If the kid didn't have a weapon or was hesitant to use it, that would have been a sign that the kid wasn't too far gone.
This is the part that I've been niggling over.
Not having a weapon is *not* a sign of good mental health. At best, it's a sign of unpreparedness or naivete.

Being hesitant to use it would be a sign of good mental health.
In my view, the limited description of the GM's poor roleplaying of the kid defending himself allows for that hesitation.
The kid did not pull the weapon until struck and only scored so much damage because the PC critfailed spectacularly.
But that's my take on a few words in a greentext, not much to go on.

>> No.50126778

GM becomes PC and another PC does a stint at GMing.

Former GM makes edgelord darkshadow badass schizo character who constantly attacks party whenever he gets the chance.

Try to be nice, but warn him the party will kill him if he tries dumb shit. He gets all shitty and says we're stopping him from roleplaying the way he wants.

Now he's super angsty at me all the time, saying my character is too strong all the time and how I need to be nerfed, and trying to home brew rules to ruin me.

Meanwhile his character is a fucking min maxed piece of crap who somehow convinced new GM his "alternate personality" is allowed to have completely different stats and skills because that's just how it works apparently, and crafts OP as fuck items while I'm using a sword.
