    Ok Sarah, I was okay with it when you got that broken as hell precog/Taskmaster ability because its pretty much all you had going for you.
    I was ok with it when you acted like a brooding emo jackass because it was fun to take the piss out of you with that monk.
    I was ok with it when you abandoned the party to join the BBEG because it made good drama.
    I was ok with it when you KILLED the BBEG because I thought you could take his place.
    I was even ok with it when you insisted you get a katana.
    But now you're joining the evil organization and being the perfect underling? Are you TRYING to be the biggest tool possible?
    You know what? OK. This is your first test. This guy is possessed by a demon. But, this demon is his BEST FUCKING FRIEND and will be actively helping him the whole match. And he wields SEVEN FUCKING SWORDS. AT THE SAME TIME. I SURE HOPE YOU CAN PREDICT AND DODGE ATTACKS COMING FROM SEVEN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AT ONCE, 'CAUSE IF HE LANDS ONE HIT YOU'RE FUCKING DEAD. EAT MY DICK BITCH.

    DM: Okay, you guys, let's see what you have ...
    Jake, what did I say the last time you wanted to play an ex-cop?
    Jake: Never again? But, he's not that bad. He's just an ex-cop with a robotic arm. He acts like he's still a cop, though.
    DM: So, he's a vigilante.
    Jake: No, bounty hunter.
    DM: Same thing, but he gets paid for it. Next is... Frank?
    Frank: What?
    DM: You're playing a teaser slut. Again.
    Frank: I- well, this one's an amnesiac.
    DM: A greedy amnesiac gambler slut with a gun. It's fine, just... you don't get to have sex with anyone on-screen.
    Frank: I didn't start that one, it was all-
    DM: Don't care. Steve, you're a bounty hunter right out of the box. He's got an awesome backstory, and it gives me ideas. But...
    Steve: But?
    DM: He seems a little cliché, personality-wise.
    Steve: What's the big deal?
    DM: Nothing, it's just been done before. Looks like you're all bounty hunters so far. Dee? Where's your sheet? Okay, I- What?
    Dee: Tech genius, androgynous, hacker.
    DM: I see all that, but your character's younger than every other person so far. And what's this tick flaw?
    Dee: Well, she talks in the third person. And I don't see the problem with being a prodigy. Jake did it last game, and Frank the game before that.
    DM: Okay then, but you're coming in later, alright? It seems a little... better of a skill set than everyone else since it's more focused, and this is kind of a space opera game.
    Dee: Later as in when?
    DM: In a few sessions, to give you more time to work out your character's backstory. It's a little lacking. You can stay and see what the game's like until then, but, please, don't butt in. Okay? Okay. This has some potential to be fun.

    Okay, so...we've got a fire-haired tsundere who is gifted with fire magic, was granted control of the fire-spirit sword which can burn anything, and is going to one day become the leader of what is arguably the most powerful fire-based clan in the setting. Fire fire fire.

    We've got the little pretty-boy who is only mildly able with fire magic and, despite having any real combat abilities, is able to scrape by in every situation because apparently all of his friends will drop what they're doing at a second's notice to save his worthless ass.

    And we've got the son of the fire clan's most gifted and powerful magic user who couldn't start a forest fire in a forest where the trees are made of gasoline and cow farts, so he was outcast from the fire clan at a very young age. But he makes up for this by having drawn up a contract by the very gods of wind to grant him their power any time he wants it, and is arguably the most powerful magic user on the entire planet now. Oh, and he totally has a dark and mysterious past where his love was killed right in front of his eyes so he's very mysterious now.

    Fuck all of you.

    A bioroid prostitute, a corporate spy from a biotech firm, his Chinese refugee assistant with a bloody past...all good. I think this Shadowrun Thailand game will be pretty good and I'm not even sorry I let you guys talk me out of modding out the fantasy elements.

    Will, Jen; I'm not sure how your two cops are going to fit into this. They both have a flaws that say have to do everything they can to keep foreign biotech out of Thailand...which might come into conflict with the rest of the group, who are biotech smugglers and a highly illegal bioroid import you'd have to kill on sight.

    At first I thought Anderson Lake was the protagonist.
    Then Hock Sang
    Then Captain Jaidee and his lieutenant by default afterwords
    It really took the whole novel, but Emiko fully fleshed out as the hero of the story by the end.

    Anyways, I only saw an audio version. How did they spell Grahamite priest? Like that? I'm wondering if Billy Graham or his jerk son are supposed to have come up with the whole Noah's Ark full of different foods religious sect thing or if the name was referencing something else or nothing in particular at all.

    DM: OK can we PLEASE go over this one more time?

    Jason: Well. You went to go get a coke and told us to roleplay. Then my character managed to trick Greg and Sally's character into a grove of trees where I tied up Greg's character. I succeeded on a diplomacy check to convince Sally's character to tell me the location of the gold, but then she pulled the honour card on me and then me and Greg's character kinda fought. It was pretty wicked man. And then I killed him and she ran away.

    Sally: OH YOU ARE SO FULL OF SHIT. This guy, literally he tries to rape me. Then I free Greg's character and tell him to kill my character cause like, fuck this if playing a girl is gonna get me in this sort of shit it's not worth the trouble. I have to answer a call so I leave the table for a second and then Greg's character is dead.

    DM: Alright, alright Greg?

    Greg: OK. Jason molests Sally's character-

    Jason: I DID NOT

    Greg: And then he was all like "Help me find the treasure" and she agreed. But then he was all like "What? I just molested you and now you wanna help? Bitch you crazy," so he asks me if I should kill her or not and I say "dude let it go" and then she ran. Then he let me go and I decided to kill my guy off.

    DM: Yea but why!?

    Greg: This game's stupid that's why. I'm out.

    Marvin: ... uhhh... that's not how I remember it.

    DM: Oh Marvin what do you recall?

    Marvin: Well I saw Jason's character hitting on Sally and she made her sense motive check. She got angry over it and told Greg to "defend her honour as a lady" but he really didn't wanna. But she made a good intimidation check and the two fought. Kinda bad really. Neither one really hit until the final stretch of combat where Jason's guy managed to stab Greg's guy in the chest. Sally was away when it happened though.

    DM: And what about that magic dagger Greg's character had?

    Marvin: ... I dunno?

    DM: *sigh* Great.

    Marvin: Hey man. This happens. I'll treat you to lunch ok?

    Jesus christ that was a grimdark setting. I wasn't ready for that, I was 12 but I was hooked. The interactions and characters were so realistic, down to the war crimes and atrocities, and how it scars the survivors as well as the perpetrators.

    The hero was impressive because he was able to retain being noblebright even through all the shit that was happening, just seems like the most honorable samurai born in the wrong era.

    >> Anonymous 10/04/10(Mon)00:10 No.12320089
    To be honest, I never found ASoIaF to be very 'subverting'.

    It's gritty, and . . .realistic, to a degree. People die. What I really liked was that everyone has his or her own agenda that mostly made sense from the characters point of view.

Catch is you're all fucking crazy and backstabbing assholes.

    Actually, the one they did before this had them playing as a rogue, a monkey who took Greed as a flaw, a bog-standard spoiled princess who took a tiger as a combat pet and then forgot about it the whole game, and then two guys who joined up mid-campaign. One of them never said a word, the other would have been THAT GUY if it wasn't for the fact that everybody thought he was amusing.

    Oh, and the whole thing was actually a flashback narrated by Crazy Hassan as he attempted to unload the campaign's MacGuffin onto an unsuspecting passerby.

    John: All right, here's my character for that school life RPG, ordinary high school kid who's a bit of a smartass but-
    GM: Great! My GMPC will be in charge of the party of course, she has all her stats maxed out and the world actively changes to accommodate her desires.
    John: What.
    Al: Here's my sheet.
    GM: How could you afford all this with the starting points? It's OK though, I like a challenge, just remember that I'm the GM and my word is law here.
    John: That's all very nice Al, but I wish you'd spend even half as much effort on in-character dialogue as you do reading the character optimization forums... it's like your characters never talk at all.
    Mike: I'll play a maid with large breasts.
    GM: Ooh, that sounds good. *fapfapfap*
    John: How the hell does your maid have the ability to travel in time?
    Mike: Oh come on, she's only level 1 so I can barely ever use it anyway. And I have a charisma modifier up the wazoo so your character has to like mine.
    John: What about your character, Dick?
    Dick: Oh, I've already cleared it with the GM, but since I'm the mysterious transfer student I probably shouldn't tell you all the details yet. Including my sexual orientation.
    John: I guess I'm better off not knowing.
    GM: Right, we're all set for the first adventure! Just follow my GMPC and we'll be sure to find loads of plot hooks! And you'd better keep her happy or there will be hell to pay.
    John: *facepalm*

    Sam: Look, I'm not sure about playing Mage, I mean, we had a lot of fun playing Vampire...

    GM: Just me give me your sheets. Okay, so Sam's a rogue self-taught wizard with frankly pathetic stats, but he makes up for it with Regen, Kelly is playing the orphaned daughter of high ranking wizard, Ann's playing a 9 year old mage with stupidly high stats due to genetic enhancement traits but pays for it in CON, and Henry have you decided yet on whether to play this asshole brother or his sister who's... wait what? What the fuck?

    Sam: Oh god, it's not like when Henry was playing as that maid was it?


    DM: Okay, now, ALL of you get combat familiars.
    Sam: How many points is that?
    [DM misreads the number and accidentially adds an extra zero.]


    DM: How the fuck can your familiar be the ghost of king arthur, SHE'S A GIRL.

    Sam: So?

    [DM then sees Kelly's servant. Head explodes]


    DM: Okay, so, Caster is summoning multiple bone golems to combat you, Sam, your Sword Servant is still wounded, and Ann's character is out of stored magic gems, and your trapped in the garden.

    Sam: Any chance I could try and trace something useful? Like that spear the irish guy was using?

    DM: You could try, but you're head would explode most likely. Hmm. Okay just as she's making the usual bad-guy spiel a rain of weapons descends from the sky and kills her... standing in the moonlight you see a man standing in Golden Armour on the wall of your compound. Your servant seems to flinch as if recognising him.

    Kelly: Oh god, it's like last time where we solo'd that dude with all of those animals inside of him and you threw an episode and sicced a guy who couldn't actually die on us.

    Sam: Who I then killed.

    I actually ran this a few weeks back. Well, the PCs weren't Mario & Co., because the players had no idea what I was doing, but it was basically Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 through 1-4 adapted to a D&D 4e one-shot, with a few other things pulled from other games (e.g. a Chain Chomp / giant big-mouthed golem on a chain).

    It was pretty awesome. The players didn't even catch on until they came to the room with a dragon on a bridge over lava and a switch/axe on the other side.

    GM: Ok guys, who's up for some cyberpunk covert ops action? First I'll need a basic idea of what role everyone is playing in your unit.

    Mike: Cyberware assisted sniper, basically I'm thinking this guy has had a long career in the military as a marksman before being recruited for this unit. Perhaps the best sniper there is. Cold and stoic character as you would expect.

    GM: Reasonable enough.

    Steve: Team rigger, basically our expert on all things computerised with plenty of experience on keeping all our cyber-brains with the latest cutting edge anti-hacking software. Mostly he'll stay back and work the tech angle, supporting the team.

    GM: Sounds cool enough, though I don't want to waste too much time on the matrix side of things.

    Mark: Well, I'm playing your basic street samurai, heavily modified for close quarters combat, a cyberlimb, obvious cybernetic eyes, wired reflexes, the works. Good all round soldier with leadership skills and a bit of mechanics for maintaining our drone pool. He's a pretty chill guy.

    GM: I can live with that, though you seem to play the same guy in every game.

    Kevin: Well, my guy is a former detective, practically no cybernetics I'm thinking I was brought on the team so we're not completely disconnected from normal people. Otherwise he's pretty sweet wise, great detective skills, can use a pistol pretty good, reasonable at talking... you know, so we've got someone who can talk to people.

    GM: Phew, well good thing someone thought of that, what about you Paul?

    Paul: Oh, well I wasn't sure if we'd have all the bases covered so I thought I'd branch out and be as self sufficient as possible. Ok, so she's a full body cyborg, basically downloaded into this cybernetic shell as one of the first prototypes for the technology, so you know, basically the government owns her soul. From there she's got all kinds of experience in the military but primarily she's a world class hacker... oh, sorry Steve, didn't know what you were playing, but it's cool, she's more on the front lines you know?

    GM: Wait, what the hell, you are more heavily modified then Joe's character, you have your ranged skills almost as good as Mike's character with EVERY weapon, and you're a better hacker then Steve? What the hell?

    Paul: Like I said, I covered all the bases, if it makes you feel any better I got plenty of social flaws, she's barely human and feels the need to make up for it by dressing up like a hooker.

    GM: God damnit, Paul.

    Dm: Ok, so, let me see some character sheets.

    Raul: Here. I got the son of a Lord, who's dad has come into possesion of a new fief. Got some psyker from his momma, and Close quarters combat trained by the family's Master of Assassins. He also might have a bit of a messiah complex.

    Dm: Goddammit. So, a combat whore, again, from you. Jesus, what did I expect? Jessebell?

    Jesse: I'll actually be playing psyker mother. Old school witch training blended with total body control. Monks with clairvoyance and mind control, fuck year!

    Dm: Jess, I am dissapoint. Severely. I might have to cancel this campaign and just cry for 4 hours every Friday night. Save me from this maddness, Rajh.

    Rajh: Brace yourself for a good hard roleplay fucking, my friend, I give you my masterpiece. Picture this; a desert man, tribe leader, born to kill and drink the bloodwater of every victim...but he's deep and brooding and has a dream for his tribe, nay, his people...and a phrophet-projection complex. Raul hooked me up with that little gem.

    Dm: *Bang* Oh, look at that, a new forehead sized dent in my table. We'll call it a dice-crater and never mention this again.
    oooookay. Let me see what I can do with this...

    Raul, you have mortal enemies, sworn to rip the fief from under your feet and replant it under thiers. You also have a cousin for some reason, we'll get to that later. And...Fuck it. It's a desert! I hope you all get eaten by a sandbird. The dice must roll...

    Mike's playing a guy who can telepathically control bees by exploiting Animal Ken, John's playing as the man who invented sniping and is photosynthetic somehow, Carl only has "Gene Simmons as The Predator" on his sheet, Andrea is playing as an insane pyrophilic cosmonaut, Scott's playing the psychic ghost of a ghost psychic, and Kaitlin somehow broke the rules so hard she has a gun that can't run out of ammo.

    Nah, those are all NPCs. The PCs would be Cobra Unit for the first game, and slowly get picked off at the end by The Joy's Retainer because of bullshit politics.

    Then they'd keep going and that fucker became a GMPC in the backstory and EVERYTHING revolves around him, so they just made ridiculous troll-tier characters to keep fucking up the GM's plot.

    I can also see this going on for years, with PC's becoming BBEG's and GMPC's over and over again.
    It get's to the point where the guy with Diarhhea is actually doing okay, and there's some bullshit involving ninja's and some robots that moo and everythings explained with NANOPROBES, and they haven't a fucking clue what is going on, the only time they really enjoy it is during the light hearted Christmas oneshots.

    Decades pass, and the GM's campaign notes are eventually unearthed by his kids. They sort of make a 50 years later setting, where robot assassins are killing people and the players have to stop them.

    One player is an amnesiac ex-military detective
    Another is a homage to William Gibson
    The last one is the tiny assistant robot that goes with the first player.

    Within minutes of their first session the second player is killed and has to play as his character's daughter.
    Then the GM got REALLY mean.

    Then, after that campaign is finished, the GM has his masterstroke. A cop drama set in a space colony.

    One player is a Detective who's been cryogenically frozen for 20 years.
    The other is his badly aged partner
    Another is the daughter of the cryogenically frozen detectives ex-wife.
    The last one finds Meryl's character sheet and uses that.

    The main character from the last game has a cameo, shit get's deep, corporate politics, genetically enhanced hitmen and a fully awesome time is had by all.

    Okay, everybody, let's gather around. I've got ... let's see... one, two, three characters returning... couple of new guys. Who is playing what, now?
    >I'm playing the Survivor ex-cop from the last game.
    I liked him. He was pretty cool, didn't afraid of anything.
    >I'm playing a helicopter pilot who likes snakes.
    Uh... little weird, but do-able. Weren't you a mechanic in the previous game?
    >Yeah. I wanna be a helicopter guy who has snakes as friends.
    ...weird, but cool. You have zero resources, so you'll start the game without fuel.
    >Its cool. If your character and mine hit it off, we can share resources.
    >Oh, cool. A partner?
    >Uhm. I don't do "partner". My last one got burned alive, remember?
    Moving on ... let's see.. huh. You're playing a mechanic?
    >Yeah. I'm going to be with the plucky survivors in a colony in the desert.
    You took paraplegic. How does that work?
    >I'm carried around on a crane/hoist thing.
    Okay... a lot weird, but moving on. And what about you guys?
    >We're all playing gay rapist cannibals.
    Holy Hell, guys. What is your motive?
    >We want gasoline from the plucky desert colonists.
    Well, that settles the entire "plot" thing. I had a different idea, but... fuck it.

    Okay, we open up our story with a chase scene between the ex-cop and the gay rapist psychos....

    *Ten minutes later*

    Player 1: Jesus, I don't care anymore, I just fucking slice his throat open
    Player 2: I fucking hate mob rules
    Player 3: No, I did not rig that Intuition roll, why do you ask?

    DM: Okay, so, what have you got,
    Moe: I'm the son of an aristocratic family who would rather work on his artificing in Cid's character's workshop.
    DM: And Weapon Proficiency: Wrenches and Guns?
    Moe: Backstory details his gun proficiency and the Wrench is an artificing tool.
    DM: Alright. You, Melissa?
    Melissa: I'm a future princess come back in time to save the planet from destruction. I'm a spellblade.
    DM: Okay, that's fine.... wait. What is this. Polymorph Self?
    Melissa: I can turn myself into a monster. Thing is I have to have a badge, which involves conversing with that monster and giving it gifts.
    DM: Okay, I -guess- I can allow that. Moe? What's this 'Large Iron Golem - Ridable' on your sheet?
    Moe: I ride around in it, Cid made it and when I gain more Artificer levels I can upgrade it.
    DM: Alright, but I'm gonna make it suck right off the bat, just so you know.
    Moe: That's fine.
    DM: Now, you guys already cleared those time travel trinkets with me, and you wanted a world-building scenario like last campaign, so let's get started.

    You're not even trying, apparently.
    You can find some way to portray any movie in any light, provided you put a little effort into it. Srsly.

    Okay, what is everyone's concept?
    >I'm playing an affable kid from a suburb in the UK.
    Uhhh. Sure. You're aware we're playing a plane-traveling campaign, right?
    >Yeah. I wanna be the comic relief and brains of the outfit.
    >No way! That's me!
    Wait, what? You're playing.. a gnomish plane-traveler with a decent charisma and .. am I reading this right? "A steampunk theme to my clothes"?
    >Yeah. We're all kind of eclectic that way.
    Wait, "all"?
    >All six of us are playing gnomish plane-travelers.
    ... uh. Fuck it. Why did you all spent points on "Artifact"?
    >Its a map of space and time. We stole it from God.
    That simplifies things. He's going to want it back and his former apprentice is going to be on the lookout for you, too. That cool with everyone?
    Well, then. The game starts with a knight in full armor running through your room, Kevin.

    I hope nobody is going to make special snowflakes this game. What do we have... let's see...
    >Swordsman from 1536. Scotsman.
    Do-able, do-able. You took a five point enemy?
    >That'd be me. Scary guy from parts unknown. We're mortal enemies.
    I can do this. I can do this. Okay, and you?
    >I'm playing his romantic interest.
    Well, this is about to get complicated.
    >No, its not. Check our sheets. We both have the same weaknesses.
    ...."Decapitation"? That's not a fucking weakness! Everyone is "weak" against decapitation! That's like saying, "I'm hurt when I'm dropped off of a building over fifty stories tall!" What the fuck, guys.
    >We also regenerate non-decap wounds.
    Wait... lemmee see those sheets.
    Fine, we start the game with a swordfight.I hope this guy cuts your fucking head off. Roll init.
