    16 KB THAT GUY STORIES TO KEEP YOU UP AT NIGHT Anonymous 07/27/11(Wed)06:10 No.15719907  
    So, I'm running a homebrew campaign for my two friends, one of my two friends girlfriend, and some guy that the other dude said was really chill and asked to bring along.

    Now, normally I'd say, 'Hey. No tag-alongs.' After all, I don't know the guy, I don't want a stranger in my house, and generally speaking, they 'don't know' that it's polite to bring along a snack, or something to drink, or at least a few bucks to chip in for pizza. I'm not some kinda nazi, those are just a few examples of the many reasons not to have a total stranger you've never met or heard of hang out for six hours in your house when you easily (at least in my case) could've met up for that first session at, say, the local gaming store. That's just how I roll.

    Anyway, in this case I decided, hey, I've known this guy for a dozen years or so, he's pretty alright, I've trusted his judgement before and he's never steered me wrong. So I think, alright. Besides, my other friend knew this guy and though he told me that he wasn't especially well acquainted, he seemed okay.

    It was a homebrew campaign, and I pretty much told everyone (and had my friend pass it along to this other guy) that I'd allow for pretty much whatever kind of backstory/character they wanted to make, but to keep it flexible. The world, I told them, would be a well blended world, and that they could just write up in-depth or brief backstories about them and their homeland and I'd take it from there.

    The night comes along, lo and behold. The friend's friend has brought a level 2 homebrew-class anthropomorphic skunk girl with high-end triple digit hit points, three different scent-oriented at will powers, damage reduction, and +1 "mythril claws of magic missile."

    She also happened to be the princess of a nation of anthropomorphic animal people, of which she was the only skunk in her family, and they were, quote, 'Considered to be the nation where all life began.'

    I ain't got nothing against furries. But ah hell.

    Jesus Christ how horrifying

    But I do like the thought of a race of Skunk Men with olfactory powers. I'd love to flesh that out into something not terrible
    >> OPtacus 07/27/11(Wed)06:17 No.15719942
    I know, I'm not even against furries. I've run a game before that had three or four homebrew 'beastmen' races in it. Each had appropriate level adjustment/etc.

    This character had two class levels in a class they literally made up for themselves and had no level adjustment for a race with three at will racials.

    It also had +3 Charisma. But -1 dexterity to 'balance it out.'
    >> OPtacus 07/27/11(Wed)06:21 No.15719966
    Not sure what more to say. We played one session. The one stipulation I had given them for their characters was that they'd need to come up with a reason why their characters were on a ship sailing for the 'new world.'

    His? 'Sandy is sailing to the new world to take her place is regional ruler over the colony of anthros that invaded and conquered that land.'
    >> Aibaleet 07/27/11(Wed)06:22 No.15719972
    See, that's weird. I don't understand how people can justify this. Skunks STINK. People stay away from skunks because they're foul animals. This has got to be one charming motherfucking race if every single one of them gets +3 charisma. Hell, I'd call a -3 because hurrlogic.
    >> Anonymous 07/27/11(Wed)06:26 No.15719990

    Tell us of this class.
    >> OPtacus 07/27/11(Wed)06:27 No.15719999
    I don't really recall the specifics of the at-will powers, partially because it wasn't specific whether they were actually for the race or the homebrew class. 'Olphactomancer.'

    But basically, one gave her a +5 on any charisma skill checks (diplomacy, bluff, etc) due to her being able to 'manipulate the emotions of lesser beings through scent control.' Lesser beings were specified as 'any non-skunk or non-feline anthro.'

    The second one was basically turn undead, but for anything that could smell. I remember that it was named 'Spray.'

    And lastly, my favorite, 'Mark Property.'

    Guess what it did.

    It wasn't actually 4e. It was a mostly rules-light 3.5. My group knows that I'm more likely to say, 'Nah, fuck that, roll ____ instead.' for something. I can run full on, by the books 3.5, but people usually have more fun my way. Or so I'm told. The game is usually an excuse to get together and have a few shots and just unwind anyway.

    The triple digit hit points, by the way, came from hit point bonuses from each and every piece of gear. It was all enchanted. Cuz the skunk was a princess.

    See, that's when you grab their sheet and start crossing things out. If they bitch, remind them that everyone else built there character using a set of rules and he shouldn't be able to backstory his way out of the rules.

    That said, your friend, the one who invited him. I'd start to wonder about him too. He's friends with the blatant furry, and is likely already tainted.
    >> OPtacus 07/27/11(Wed)06:47 No.15720087

    Little else to say about the character, specifically. I'm about 80% positive that the guy was faking most of his rolls because he was using a dice roller on his iphone. I'm pretty sure he just rolled over and over until he got something sufficiently high, and then kept that on his phone until he actually needed to roll, then would act like he had just rolled it. He would then show everyone what he 'rolled.'

    Also, he did bring snacks. A family sized bag of cheetos and two 32 OZ Monster energy drinks. I didn't bust out the miniatures for this one, specifically because I saw him come in with the bag of cheetos. I have 300+ miniatures, dungeons tiles, set pieces, etc, all kinds of tools of the trade. Nobody asked where they were or why I didn't bring them out, because after about fifteen minutes after the session had begun, before everybody's initial roleplaying mumbo jumbo was finished, his sheet was smathered in cheese prints.

    I had to specifically tell him that using a coaster was a request, not a suggestion. His response? "It's a can though."

    Not really freeform. I actually do stat the enemies, you probably wouldn't be able to tell it was anything but normal 3.5.

    I dunno. Afterwards he apologized up and down. He still games with that guy, apparently, they've been friends since elementary school. Maybe he knew this guy was a furry, maybe he didn't. But I don't think he expected this. He told me that the guy had said he was making a rogue.

    Also, the friend that had invited Skunk Princess didn't even opt to play a beastman in the one game I did that involved them. He almost always plays humans. Sometimes a dwarf.

    As funny/morbid as that would have been, nothing like that happened in the game.

    And I'm pretty sure the guy wasn't trolling, I honestly think he believed that this was all entirely acceptable.

    Not just the furry shit, cuz as I've said I could care less about that stuff if it isn't interfering with the game in any way. But he either was serious about thinking his marysue class was balanced or just thought we were retarded.

    >using coasters

    Seriously? Do you have some unsealed teak tables or something?

    Because I have news for you on the necessity of coasters on varnished/lacquered/cheapass chipboard tables.

    Seriously though, unless you have 1000 dollar unprotected wood tables (enjoy having children), coasters are pretentious. Wipe that shit down with a damp cloth afterwards and you're good to go.

    Seriously, though, that guy is awful. I don't even play D&D but spreading shit all over someone's house, especially the first time you meet said person, is retarded beyond belief. I'm casual about that shit at my house because hey, I'm the one stuck in a pile of shit if I don't clean it (which I do), but if I visit someone else it's napkins and coasters all up in this bitch. Don't spread shit all over other people's houses, that shit is NOT cool.

    No neckbeard at all. Picture a 19 year old fellow that's probably 10 lbs underweight. Black, greasy hair coming down to his shoulders. Slightly pimply skin. Smells like cat piss (or meth, but probably cat piss), laughs too loud and too often, and says 'BOOYAH' when he 'rolls.'

    That's how I've felt about any table I've ever owned. This is a pool table though. Like, for billiards, or whatever you may call it. Handed down to me by my grandfather who bought it overseas when he was in the army and had it shipped over here afterwards. Men that he told me stories about played on this table days before they died. It's not pristine, by any means, but I want it to last, and right now I don't have room for it AND my shitty wal-mart table.

    Otherwise, fuck it, I wouldn't even have coasters.

    Dice are rolled on the tiles/dry erase board/closed books/etc. Rarely, if ever, rolled on the table itself. I'd say it's in pretty good shape, if not the same as the day I bought. Never had a problem with scratching anything with my nails when picking up dice, though. But I sure as hell wouldn't let a beverage or a bag of cheetos near the table.

    It wasn't so much "That guy" as it was "Those two."

    I joined up with a newly formed group, and everyone was fine except this one pair of people that I want to say were a couple, but could have just been "friends."

    They were, unironically, making pretty heavy use of the book of erotic fantasy. When the DM started to pipe up, the girl started to get really defensive about it saying that some of the stuff in there (some kind of dominant thing) was absolutely vital to both her and his character.

    Their character were an abomination of a Sorcereress and a Cleric of "The Mistress" (using that "Belief = divine power" rule.) All interactions at the table between them were cringe worthy at best.

    Or you simply get proper friends that aren't assholes.

    These threads always make me wonder what beasts you must call your friends. Or why, for that matter. Don't you know decent people? When my regular group meets for a game, we go buy snacks and drinks together, where everyone pitches in, sometimes we cook together (we mostly order some pizza, though), when we make a mess, we clean it up together, everyone is incredibly chill, we rotate the hosting, so one guy doesn't have to make room at his place all the time, etc.

    Just get some proper friends and all your "that guy" troubles will instantly disappear.

    If I gamed on that table, I'd put up the same rules.

    And if you spill any messy food and drink on my floor, you help me clean it up. That's courtesy, especially if it's really hard.

    Different rules apply to something like a party, but just for a few friends visiting? Try not make being a host a pain. I'm providing a place for us to game, food and drink. I'm GMing for you. In return, you can try and reduce my work.

    I mean, sure I could wipe up after everyone's gone, but after six hours of gaming and drinking the condensation would have already done its damage to the surface in question so I'm guessing it's okay to be OCD and poised with a little sani-wipe ready to pounce on the forming condensation ring instead of JUST USING A FUCKING COASTER TO PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE DAMAGE OR DISCOLORATION THAT MIGHT OCCUR

    Every time I pick my drink up, and every time I set it down. say I do this three times an hour, which is hilariously conservative, that's 36 times over six hours. Times say, four guests, that's 144 seconds of keeping an eye on our drinks.

    So, if five seconds of your time, ten on the outside chance someone was drinking sterno, is worth 144 seconds of your guests time, then by all means, never host again because you are very very bad at it.

    He's not being lazy, it's just smart. Provide everyone with coasters so he doesn't have to clean up, or having to go around cleaning all the stains left afterwards. It's a simple choice.

    ESPECIALLY if you're gaming, because your players aren't expected to move around. They're sitting there, so there coaster can be their.

    >implying that is how using a coaster works at all
    Seriously, in my country a coaster is the norm for a guest.

    The require burned of a host is to offer refreshment, conversation and to clean any mess you drop by accident. Mess that can be prevented, you prevent.

    Because I, as a guest, usually like my host and want to lessen his burden in return for having me. I offer to help clean the dishes if I have had a meal there. Or help tidy up any mess I've left behind.

    Because the relationship between guest and host is meant to be friendly.

    you are that guy. someone invited you, a stranger, into their home. they made a simple request that takes no effort on your part. your response is to argue that its easier for them to go get a rag and dampen it to save you the terrible burden of using a coaster. the fact that he even has coasters should be a clue that you are wrong.

    You still don't seem to understand the difference between a host not wanting you to clean and a host not wanting you to break their stuff.

    You don't get to make the judgment about whether you damage something you don't own. You honor the hosts judgement.

    Looks like the basic idea of hosting changed somewhere along the line.

    Of course there is a certain amount of respect involved. If you live in the desert and humidity is a problem, or you have a thousand dollar table, I will take steps to help protect it.

    If you do not have some similar issue, and your only problem is "I don't want to wipe up later", then I have no sympathy for you.

    Don't invite people over if the burden is too great for you to bear. Just live forever in your hugbox.

    Yes, in most cases you can judge damage to an item. Breathing, will not damage most furniture. Talking will also not. Minor condensation also should not. If you are some messy fuck who gets their drinks all over the place somehow, then a coaster will not save the hosts table.

    EXACTLY. One's job as a host is to ensure that everyone does enjoy themselves, and one sure way to allow that is to pass on all the niggling bullshit like coasters.

    If you were going on a roadtrip with two friends, and a third one suddenly was able to come along, would you just ask him to chip in for gas as well, or would you stop and recalculate the added cost of gas due to his extra weight in the car?

    So a coaster is not something a guest should do, and the host should clean up.

    But removing shoes is something they should do and the host shouldn't have to clean up eventually.

    Yeah, this is ass backwards to me. In my country, total reverse.

    Just because you had to take a few seconds from your time, in return for me hosting, GMing and providing food and drink for a game, you're still going to refuse to come back because a few seconds were taken to lighten the load on me.

    Why? You only have to do it once. Your feet can breathe with them off. Surely it can't be comfortable to wear shoes from the time you exit your home in the morning until you return at night.

    But if you are the sort of person who really, really hates taking his shoes off, say, he has a fear of his feet or something, I'd allow you to leave them on, provided they were reasonably clean.

    It is for the host to make the guest comfortable.

    You are not "put upon". A normal person uses a coaster on automatic, putting the drink back on it's place nearly subconsciously. The only effort needed is the initial placement.

    Unless you're moving around the house, you will lift, take a drink from it, and put it back without any effort.

    Main table.

    Anything else is at your discretion.

    You can change them every 25 years if you buy new, but goodwill furniture should have a ten year span in your house.

    Give it back to the store you bought it from if it's still good.

    Buying from thrift stores is good for the community, and surely you can afford to do something like that 6 or 7 times in your life.

    Depends bro. All the wiping down of a table removes the varnish eventually or at least exposes enough wood grain to stain.

    Really dark stuff like mahogany and ebony are usually fine but even oak and maple are prone to that crap.

    God I love red cedar though. My parents have a dining table made out of that that has been in our family fr 5 generations.

    Mine's from the 20's and made out of Cherry. Stains like a motherfucker. That was my pic earlier in the thread.

    This thread is amazing. I really don't see how using coasters is that difficult. I mean, I wouldn't force guests to use coasters as my room is a mess and my table is cheap, but if I was at someone's house and they had coasters out I would use them (even if they didn't ask me, just because they had them out). A drink on the table next to an empty coaster would be weird to me.

    We play on a messy old table that is used for... well anything by its owner... He once used it to make a fuckload of dough for tortillas or whatever.

    However we use coasters for one simply reason:
    The ice cold beer we drink often causes some water to get on the table, using coasters prevents our character sheets from getting wet.
