Also I’m sad we’ve lost the Barbarian, I love the play with words, for sure. The players may act dumb at times, but they are sharp, that’s for sure.

Thank you Tim, for making me laugh out loud. This only can be a good day (^.^)

rule #1 of the D&D playbook : always mess with the DM the first occasion you get

Rule #2 of the D&D playbook, act appropriately hurt and offended when the DM utterly WRECKS you. “What?? I was just making conversation! This guy calls everyone “man”, and he DOES use a bat. It was incidental, I swear!”

Rule #3 , just screw it with DM and play your own campaign inside his/hers.

It seems unwise to upset the GM. Cue death montage of the man, with the bat.

The GM and the healer, I mean I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t notice him bleeding out in the middle of a fight 🙂

I’m calling it now: 1 eventually brings back his Barbarian character and kills the Bat Man when he gets bored of it. This will frustrate 4 because he’ll do it suddenly and without his permission, and 1 will probably say something like “being Batman isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”

At least, that’s how I’d return the status quo at the end of this campaign.

I imagine pulling out Yahtzee would be even worse…

Reminds me of one in my game: Kem S. Tree (apparently had a relative Phyz Icks). Was not overly sad when he at a Cloudkill and expired.

There’s always one in every group. Until he dies.

I have these ruby GameScience dice that for some reason try to kill any PC I use them with. If I DM with them, they will actively try to kill the party. The threat of, “Don’t make me use the RED DICE!” is an active threat to the table. I TPK’d an entire table of Tier 2s in one battle with 2 displacer beasts! (they were all 9th or 10th level Min/Maxers!) I openly rolled all my dice in front of them. Never rolled less than a 15 the entire time! After that, my dice became legend! I’ve had a… Read more »

Our old GM used to have a set of somewhat-worn green-colored dice (I never asked where he got them, sadly, they looked like they were nice at one time) that he kept in a mesh bag. If someone started being problematic, he’d drop that bag on the table as the warning shot. I’d been in a few of his games, even once had those dice used against me. I swear, these things rolled in ways you shouldn’t think were possible. We had a table rule, that saving throws had to be done using the GM’s dice. Was designed to eliminate… Read more »

So sounds like people would object to my Necromancer named Jessie who lovingly handcrafts ghouls so well that all the other necromancers wish that they had Jessie’s ghouls?

Goddamnit, Tim, it’s nap time in the toddler room and you made me legit LOL. I almost woke the little monsters up, I hope you’re happy -_-

Also, don’t be a sore loser, Player 3, he got you :p

*sigh* There’s ALWAYS one.
Every group I’ve ever played with, they have the “oh I’m bored of this guy, change chars plz”, after all of about 2-3 adventures (maybe 8 sessions max). Most annoying thing next to drop-in/drop-out players

I’ve since started a “you get 1 free character change, after that you’d best have a damn good excuse or must have died in a permanent manner”

It’s not how much blood I have on the inside, but how much I bleed that defines me…

It seems to me only player 3 is into the game – the rest would much rather do something else. On the other hand, #3’s the type to play a character in it’s own game – I’ve always disliked that as a player, (there was a particular DM whose character always solved everything and pretty much won al the fights) and when I DM I simply tend to forget about those.

DMPCs can be fraught with problems, but 3’s done well with avoiding the worst pitfalls with his. Support role, not outshining the other PCs, etc.

And without this particular DMPC, it’s hard to imagine this party sticking together.

So, if the DM smites him with all the dice and they all also turn out to be natural 20s, what then?

I’m thinking light mace.

I’m also thinking that 1’s build is likely to be totally suboptimal.

…this joke was funnier before I realized this version of the quote if from xkcd.
