>Your character's name is wrong.>Either change the spelling or change the pronunciation.It was a name I made up, game takes place in a fantasy setting. That GM thread I guess?
>That GM thread I guess?Sounds more like a "That Guy" thread.What was the character's name and what fantasy setting?
>>51201161>Your character's name is wrong.>Either change the spelling or change the pronunciation.is your GM M.Night Shaymalan?
>have a character who I'd a wannabe knight>play him as enthusiastic, naive, driven>DM tells me during a session that I need to stop roleplaying him coming up with or suggesting plans unless I spend experience on a knowledge skill>wait until game time the next week and say I quitPetty of me, I know.
>>51201421Final Fantasy 11, Vana'dielThe name was 5 letters long, had one consonant, three vowels, and a y. He had no problem with the name itself. Just that I was pronouncing it wrong following the guidelines he believes the race's naming conventions followed. Literally the difference between a 'who' and a 'ho'.
>>51201161But if the setting uses certain language rules or nomenclature, that could be something you need to change. If the setting is using Tolkien Elven you shouldn't be making a grey elf named Bob. If there's Arab inspired Halflings, you shouldn't name one Dennis.Why can't you make a name that fits the setting/culture/etc?
>>51201474stats only have the affect on a character that they do mechanically, intelligence affects the number facts your character knows, ho quickly they can learn new skills and their ability to cast certain kinds of magic, in D&D that is all intelligence determines
>>51201492Just change the spelling or argue the pronunciation rulesNot really worth getting your panties in a twist over
>>51201513I did. He just doesn't like the way I pronounce it. I actively had a race specific name picked out ahead of time specifically for this setting. He just disagrees with me about how the fictional name I invented is pronounced.
>>51201515Yeah, he wasn't hearing any of that.
>>51201492I don't see the issue here. Just change the spelling to conform with the naming conventions, then. Otherwise it could be seen as confusing, for no good reason.
>>51201530Then sick it up and use his pronunciation. He's the GM, he makes the rules, and this is a tiny detail that you shouldn't fight over.
I recently saw a post in another forum by a guy who made a NG Paladin in 5E. The DM tried to tell him he should intervene when a PC was going to do something against the law but not evil because he expected him to be LG or "why play a Paladin at all". Cocksmoker also tried to tell him that a Druid shapeshifting was "Scary magic that your not used too" to farther along the shitpickleI swear to god In the 3.5 days I never saw the amount of idiocy and self-assued assholeness that I tend to see nowadays. I cant pin the blame on 4E either since a LOT of what I see is a lot of guys acting like old Grognards as mentioned above
>>51201520I did argue the pronunciation rules. We disagreed.>>51201544The name and the pronunciation is important to me for personal reasons. I've already politely let him know that if the way I pronounce this character's name is going to be an issue then it would probably be best if I stepped away from the game. He really wants me to play, but he feels so strongly about the pronunciation that he'd probably rather not have me play then have to hear me say it 'wrong'. I offered to let him write the name however he wanted to on his personal notes and I would do the same on mine and that wouldn't be a big deal, but he insisted that if I signed anything IC that I would have to use his spelling and I refused. It was just a major red flag that I should probably step away from the game. I was just trying to vent somewhere. I forgot that most that guy threads OPs tend to be assumed to be in the wrong by default. My bad.
>>51201544>He's the GM, he makes the rulesnot how it works, rules only have meaning if people agree to follow them, if the table decides they don't like a certain rule then it ceases to be a rule
>>51201612>walk away from a game>just because I can't have my special nameWhat kind of self- important entitled faggot are you?>>51201618Except that is how it works. The GM lays down the rules, the players follow the rules. If the GM wants to change or add rules, it is perfectly within his right to do so. If the players don't like the rules, the door is over there.
>>51201515No it doesn't
>>51201520>>51201535If he's talking about what I think he's talking about, the GM's would not have cared and forced him to change his name, regardless(Gotta keep that rated T for Teen rating, eh SE xD).In fact, if he got into a prolonged argument with them, they would have probably just tossed him in this jail area for the next X number of days. (He would have logged into an area like the one in the video and would have been essentially been able to do nothing).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5dBtsQeSak Interestingly, if I were to set up a yell bot in the game's main city, that just yelled profanities over and over again, it would have take the GMs longer to imprison/ban me(assuming they even give a fuck) then it would have for them to deal with a name.
>>51201161In real life, I've got an awkward name that looks, on paper, like it could be pronounced the same way as a popular name (regional variant, it's a historical name).I've had people tell me that my name is wrong in the past; I've had people tell me to correct it.If people are willing to do that in real life to real names, then what's to stop them from sperging out about fantasy names?
>>51201653>>I made this name for my character>>No you didnt I choose how it works>>Isnt that bullshit?>>Entitled faggot also your horse dies roll to see if you cry and how hard I am a great DM fuck you
>>51201653Enjoy having no players to play with
>>51201653I made a character. It fits the setting, is at least relatively thought out, and it's being rejected because a single letter in the name is off. Rational people call that a red flag. Politely stepping away from the game now is better than mid session when some other inane bullshit happens. So you can shove contrarian opinion up your ass.
>>51201653>If the players don't like the rules, the door is over there.which is exactly my point, there is always a choice of whether to follow the rule or not, even if the other option is to just leave, the GM then has to question if enforcing that rule is worth losing players overEither someone decides it's not a hill they want to die on, and the game goes ahead, or people can't compromise this and don't game together (and it that situation they really shouldn't)
>>51201701This, when I was born the guy on the register insisted to my parents that my name is wrong and that he wouldn't register me with that name. The worst thing is that it's a fairly common name, this guy just was that obnoxious and sperging about a letter on a name.
>>51201520>>51201535>bend over and take GM's dick because he should decide about your character more than you
>>51201770If he can't convince his GM that his name is spelled right then either>he's actually wrong, confirming that OP is always a faggot (no exceptions)>his GM is wrong and is a top level autist who will not listen to reason, in which case leaving the game before more autism ensues is the best option
>>51201421>What was the character's name and what fantasy setting?I P Freely
>>51201612I was in the fence of not giving a shit if you and your GM choose to be autistic.Then I read this:>I offered to let him write the name however he wanted to on his personal notes and I would do the same on mine and that wouldn't be a big dealOkay, fair enough resolution>he insisted that if I signed anything IC that I would have to use his spellingHe is insane, why would this matter.>and I refused.Because it's insane?Then good for you.Leave.Because it matters how your imaginary character signs their imaginary name in a hypothetical imaginary scenario that may never happen in a game that hasn't started?Then, please, for all that is good in the world, work it out with some sort of compromise with your GM.The idea of two different groups being ruined by you nutbags is just awful.>It was just a major red flagYes, yes it is.
>>51201841I'm not gonna pretend I'm not a nutbag. I'm on /tg/ at 6 am complaining about playing pretend. I'll admit it's a little of column A and a little of column B. It's not a big issue and I know that. But it's the latest in a series of small minor grievances that I've been willing to ignore that have over time grated on me to the point where this has become the last straw that broke the camel's back.
>>51201841And don't worry. I don't play enough to actively seek out a new group.
>5e gritty realism>the party levels up every session, we even leveled up twice in a couple sessions>we're all level 9>finally meet the GM self-insert evil wizard>we piss him off cause he's an condescending asshole>he puts some vague curse on us>no immediate noticeable effects >murder his shit super hard>end of session, no level up>next session, no level up>next session, no level up>next session, no level up>next session, no level upIt's been two months now. Remove curse has done nothing.
>>51201942While I pity your suffering, that's a hilarious and creative idea. Some good potential there.
>>51201899>But it's the latest in a series of small minor grievances that I've been willing to ignore that have over time grated on me to the point where this has become the last straw that broke the camel's back.Now I'm convinced that, for whatever reason, he's sick of your shit and, rather than spending an evening alone with a magnifying glass, a flashlight, and a mirror to hunt for his balls and deal with you directly, he's been trying to passive aggressively annoy and harass you into leaving.I don't know the truth of your situation is, but that is what I am choosing to believe for my own peace of mind.The good news is that would definitely make him That GM, so there's that at least.
>>51201161My name is Rhuobhe. I dare you to pronounce it correctly.
>>51201757How can someone be THIS retarded? It's a fucking name
>>51201492>says it's 5 letters long>doesn't say what it actually was, or how he was pronouncing it.I'm 90 percent sure it was some pun, and probably a sex joke that the GM felt was inappropriate for game tone.
>>51201449To be fair a childrens cartoon shouldn't teach the kids wrong spelling.Television already make the youth go stupid.
>>51201530But you explicitly didn't. If you had just worked with the Sperg initially when you came up with the name, then you would have never had an issue. You are no different than a player wanting to name your paladin Peenus.
>>51201492Give us the fucking name, faggot.
>Play DnD for the first time >Tell my friends about it, they express interest in playing>Read about DMing, want to do a semi-serious campaign>Offer to DM and explain how everything works >One of them wanted to name his Wood Elf Scallywong, another wanted to name his Dragonborn "big toast" in Lithuanian and now wants to back out because I won't let himAm I bad DM or what the fuck?
>>51203995Nah, your players are just memesters. I've dealt with plenty before. See upthread. The paladin named Peenus is an example I had to deal with.
>>51201692What the hell are you talking about?
>Pick up some merchant skills >Suddenly we're either getting minuscule amounts of loot or no loot at allI can sort of understand why he's doing it as having all of us carrying top tier weapons and armor would break the game but it's still irritating
>>51201701>>51201757There is one country (one of the Scandinavian ones like Sweden or Denmark, I can't remember which) that only recognized 700 legal first names (which, of course, all have a particular spelling) and makes the parents choose the name out of a book essentially when a baby is born.
>>51204420in the UK certain names are banned: you cannot name your child duke, prince, baron etc as the inbred parasiteds that stole the country don't like it.
>>51204420That would be Iceland.It gets even worse though, because they don't have last names in the same sense as us, instead they're known as "[First name] son/daughter of [father's first name]"
>>51201161>autistic neckbeard waddles up to my table>sigh internally>"alright anon, what's your character's name?">"akihakikabaaqudghaale420memeking XD">"No. Either change the spelling or change the pronunciation">He's clearly consumed by autistic rage. His face turns beet red and he starts sputtering about 'muh fantasy setting'That player thread, I guess?
>>51203995Honestly, if I didn't know Lithuanian, the second one might be okay.
>>51205520So wait, there's a hundred guys named the equivalent of John, son of John?
>>51201653>What kind of self- important entitled faggot are you?I think you might have some issues. He is indeed entitled to NOT play any game he doesn't want to play. >If the players don't like the rules, the door is over there.Now you're playing it both ways? Not playing is both "self-important entitlement" and what's expected of any disagreement with the GM?
>>51205983Where do you think we get the surname "Johnson," anon
>>51205983Something like that, yeah. Knowing someone's address is often a bigger deal than knowing their name.There's only 300 000 or so people living in Iceland though, so it's not a colossal problem.
>>51205894Fucking Skrebutis. Goddamnit.
>>51206045The difference is, unlike Iceland, 15% of the population isn't named John Johnson.
>>51205520Then again...700 first names, 1400 surnames, 980 000 possible combinations for 330 000 people.
>>51206496Other anon had it correct. It's pronounced "rove."Or "rob" if you're an Amerifat.
>>51206534I could see "Robe", but fair enough.
>>51205520>It gets even worse thoughWhat is so bad about, you titlingaskítur?Just because you don't like doesn't mean it's bad!
>>51206410There's probably an amusing number of "John Johnsons" and at least one "John Johnson Jr."
https://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%8Dslensk_mannan%C3%B6fn_eftir_notkunHere is a list of Icelandic names and how many have that name from 2005.Blue are Icelandic names. Red are foreign names.The more you scroll down the more you see weird names like: Fífa, Bogey or even fucking "Virginia" (no it's not pronounced like the state).
>>51202147>a hilarious and creative ideaWell, it could be. But it sounds like the GM is just punishing them for killing a bad guy he thought was super cool and they should have all loved but they didn't. I've seen that ruin a couple of campaigns. I even had a GM straight up tell us that it wasn't fair that we killed the bad guy, because, "shouldn't he get to play, too?"
>>51206952Mistake was made, red are not just "foregin" names there is just no info about that name on the "Icelandic National Registry".
>>51201802the guy's parents are special snowflakes who don't follow their culture's naming conventions. Its not like cultural norms are physical laws that everyone is bound by.
>>51205520did Bjork's parents actually choose her name from this book?
>>51201515I would try to roleplay a stupid guy differently than a smart one but it's not like low intelligence means you NEVER HAVE IDEAS EVER
so OP are you ever going to post the name and/or why it's so personal and important to you?
>>51203995What's the Dragonborn player name was? I assume "Skrebutis", which is hilarious. If I need a name, I just take a fitting noun from the culture my character is based on. So if I play a warrior from !NotArabia, I might name him something like "Battle-hardened" but in Arab.>>51206045I'm honestly retarded.
Hey /tg/, does any of you have that greentext about that GM masturbating under the table during the game? Or any other greentext stories since my folder recently went to hell.
>>51207909Yup. Where do you think Guðmundsdóttir comes from, if not Daughter of Gudmund.
>>51207001But anon, he IS the bad guy. The GM is even the bad guy across multiple dimensions. He even said that the guy should "get to play", which means you just took down one of the most evil types of person out there; dimensional interloper.
>>51208404I always thought Bjork was one of those one-name celebrities
>>51208623Nope. She just goes by her first name because Bjork rolls off the tongue a lot better than Bjork Gudmundsdottir.
>>51207001>GM straight up tell us that it wasn't fair that we killed the bad guy, because, "shouldn't he get to play, too?"As a GM who often considers the BBEG "my character", I have to say that your response should have been to tell him that character death is a natural consequence of his actions.If my BBEG dies like a little bitch, then that's my fault.If my BBEG dies in an epic struggle with the PCs, then that's Mission Fucking Accomplished.
>>51208779>If my PC dies like a little bitch, then that's my fault.>If my PC dies in an epic struggle s defeating the BBEG, then that's Mission Fucking Accomplished.Actually that works both ways.
>>51203433On the other hand, we have such gems as -awn (pronounced Dashawn, 'cause the dash don't be silent) and Abcde (pronounced Absidy.)
>>51209189>Fee-mol-layThe mother read the wristband and thought the hospital had named her daughter something pretty.>Oh-ron-jah-loh>Leh-mon-jah-lohSisters, clearly.And the one more, nearly related:>Ab-ben Dawn a friend saw this on a DVD cover and thought it was the name of a cool fantasy land.I pronounced it correctly, and once he scraped himself together from weeping with laughter at himself, he abandoned the idea.For myself?Came up with the name:>Pul-lur-rahmSpelled it "Poleram" until I showed it to someone.
>>51209189I dunno, -awn is a lot rarer than La-a. At least in my experience. Do know one of them named Tekuila though.
>>51205520>[First name], son/daughter of [father's first name]That's metal asf.
>>51202529Well, I'm a bit disheartened that this is what you've choosen to believe. I can't control how you feel though so I'll just have to accept that. But for what it's worth, he's not the actual regular GM of our group. He's another player who's planning to start a campaign. He's actively tried to work with me to convince me to stay but he won't budge on this issue and I just can't imagine playing in his game at this point would be enjoyable at all.
>>51203831It wasn't. I just don't want the name out there. But I concede that it does look suspicious so I apologize.
>>51201161The only issue here should be you and your GM racing to accommodate each other to the point that you both accidentally change and then have a laugh about it. Both of your stubbornness is despicable. Besides, the compromise is clear as fuck. People name their kids bastardized spellings of shit all the time. My father-in-law's name is Joesph for fuck sake. No one calls him anything weird, but he occasionally has to say "it's actually spelled e s not s e". Bam, problem fucking solved."My name is Aron""Wait A-ron?"no, like Aaron""But you don't spell it Aaron?""naw""oh. That's weird""I guess. Anyway..."
>>51203915I came up with the name in 5th grade. I altered it to fit the setting before he had even asked me to. He just doesn't like the way I pronounce it.
>>51210369Fuck off already. The fact that you won't tell us the name, coupled with the claim that some combination of fantasy vowels you made up off the top of your head is important for cryptic 'personal reasons' is proof enough that you're a gigantic faggot and That Guy.
>>51206682>touchy Icelandic nationalistKekked heartily.
>>51210403Just say the fucking nameTheir is no reason for you not to say it
>>51201942>DnD is about levelling upHoly shit kys. If stats are the only way you can measure character development then I pity you. You've obviously been trained by some terrible GMs into viewing everything through the lens of mechanics, and maybe, just maybe, this current GM might cure you of it.
>>51210496There's one reason, anon.
>>51210496Fine. It was 'Kunto'.
>>51210369Why does how you might sign your name in game at some point, maybe, matter?There is a classic Simpsons episode where Bart loses a class election despite winning over his classmates.At the end, Homer cheers Bart up with a talk that includes the phrase, "Let the baby have his bottle."You and your GM both need to be a grown ass adult and let the other have this precious "win" over something that doesn't matter, or admit to yourselves that you are being a mewling baby as well.>I just can't imagine playing in his game at this point would be enjoyable at all.Admittedly, this is probably true.
>>51210533>kuntoSounds a bit like a jap saying cuntMay want to change that
>>51210418This.I go by my middle name.Name issues come up, they get solved, the end.
>>51201492yeah you're that guy. your GM is just requiring that things make sense in the setting you are playing in. don't whine about it.
>>51210533Yeah hate to break it to you, you're That Guy.
>>51210533>makes sense>why's that?>he's been acting like a kunto all thread>doohohohohoho
>>51204420All countries should do that to be honest. No more Muhammads in Europe.
Real-world parents give their kids nonstandard names. If anything, it makes the fantasy setting more realistic if some of the parents are retards.
>>51210418That's the issue. I tried that and he refuses to accept that. He says I need a backstory reason for why he would be named that. I told him that's just it's just how his name is and he won't accept it.
>>51201449Turns out it WASD Prisonrapegaymulan, the director again
>>51210633so how did you want to pronounce it and how did he want to spell it? I assume you wanted Koontoh and he wanted you to use two o's so it wasn't Cunt with a K. Shit this is top shelf bait, I'm mad as fuck. You idiots couldn't compromise at all?
>>51210533That's hilarious and you deserve a (you) because even if I posted the real name now nobody would believe me. Thanks for thr chuckle.
>>51201492>>51210533>The name was 5 letters long, had one consonant, three vowels, and a y.>Literally the difference between a 'who' and a 'ho'.>KuntoI think we've been rused lads.
>>51207759They almost are in pre-industrial societies. Traditions like that are sacred, they may evolve with the centuries but they can't be ignored and non-subtle innovation is a serious issue.
>>51210656FUCK YOU OP STOP SKIRTING THE ISSUE TELL US SO WE CAN DECIDE WITH CERTAINY WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE A CHUD
>>51210613I absolutely agree and having his parents be idiots would fit for his backstory well. But I don't know if he would accept that and at this point I don't care enough to find out.
>>51210694We already know he's a chud, the question is to what degree and how funny will it be.
>>51210649It wasn't fucking Kunto but I can't stop laughing at how this has all played out and if nothing else this was all worth it.
>>51210673I am Koon-TOH of the Vadge clan.This is my pale friend, Mike Hunt.
>>51210656JUST TELL US THE FUCKING NAMEHERE TAKE THIS (YOU) NOW TELL US
I feel like at this point we declare OP a faggot and start posting spiderman or armor or something.
>I've been rused all day>faggot OP will never tell us the name he sperged out so hard to keepKunto was worth it, though.
>>51210834Sink this thread
Kunto Hyugbahlochs of the land of Phartipant, rise and accept your knighthood. You shall henceforth be known as...Sir Loin.
>>51210853Sir Loin of BeefSir Dijon of Mustard
>>51201653playing games is a group activity between friends and the gm isn't a god king
>>51210868>Sir Dijon of MustardI feel like you don't get the joke anon.
>>51210834>declare OP a faggotNo, we declare him Kunto.
>>51210892>not getting an old Looney Tunes jokeNo, I believe it is you who does not get the joke.
>>51210775It's Houyo. Altered to Houyo-Matriyo to fit male tarutaru naming conventions. It's a reoccuring name I use for different campaigns and video games since I was in elementary school.I pronounce it "who-yo". He insists that it's not the correct way to pronounce it via Japanese language conventions and either need to say it right or change the spelling. I told him he's not Japanese he's a fucking imaginary fantasy midget, but no dice.So yeah, I'll change his name to Kunto and see if that's accepted I guess.
>>51201653>>51205669Not a That GM thread without That GM showing up.So how's your latest game going, friend? Everyone following the rules exactly as written? Had to banish anyone for overstepping their bounds? Having a good time?
>>51210926Ahhhh. Weeaboo shit. That makes it make a lot more sense.For what it's worth, your mildly spergy attatchment to the name has nothing on his demanding the fantasy setting follow Glorious Nippon Pronunciation.
>>51201653The DM's only job is to make game run as smoothly as possible for the players. He's the equivalent of the harwere you use to play PC games, he's only a tool you are supposed to use. If he doesn't do he's job properly he gets replaced.
>>51210926>a shitty name>that you've used many times>that you're not even pronouncing correctlyYou really are Kunto.
>>51210926>Houyo-Dahdi of Anwat-Sidu
>>51210971The worst part is that he's not a weeaboo. He just believes that Tarutaru should follow the Japanese naming conventions because he's a linguist.
>>51210924but isn't the whole bit that they're play on words?>Sir Loin of beef>Sirloin>Earl of Cloves>oil of clove>Baron of Munchausen>Baron Munchausen>Quarter of Ten>Milk of Magnesia
>>51211068>a linguistOh, fuck, there's your problem. There's no way you're winning this argument, and honestly I kind of get why he's fighting it. Linguists know How Language Works, naming conventions included, and it drives them up the fucking wall when people make stuff up.I DMd for a linguist once. My worldbuilding was way better for it, but goddamn if it didn't drive me crazy.
>>51211097Which is why I'm politely stepping away from his campaign, cause I'm a red neck who can't pronounce things well and this isn't the first time he's got on my case for saying things wrong.
>>51211174Well, I'd have a talk with him about it before you do. If you're comfortable getting touchy-feely about it, let him know that he occasionally makes you feel uncomfortable and unwelcome by stepping on you when you can't words as good as he can.GMs who actively want you in their game usually have something good planned, and it'd be a shame to let this stand between it and you if it can be avoided.
>>51211215I fucking hate the guy though. I've been polite and tried to hang out with him to see if I can get over it. But he somehow manages to piss me off worse every time. I'm still going to be in the same group but not in his game. I'm gonna tell him he's a bit of a dick when I help him move and that he doesn't sound like a fun GM just to clear the air. He is just amazingly infuriating and his points are asinine.
>>51211068>>51211097Most linguists wouldn't be this pedantic. Most linguists would also understand that irregularities crop up in language all the time. They'd know the possibility of different accents, of relic spellings from language substrata, of loanwords (including names). Your DM sounds like a shammer.
>>51210926I like that, actually. I might use it, but I'd change the spelling to make it less incomprehensible.
>>51211263>wait until your criticism can have no useful effect before you deliver it as a parting shotCome on bruv, that's just self indulgent.
>>51211263Well, shit. That GM confirmed, I guess. Sucks.
>>51211269Tarutaru are a race of magically inclined weirdos with verbal ticks that range from rhyming every sentence to replacing their T's with taru. Nonsensical is part of their schtick sometimes.I was going to make a down to earth veteran martial artist mercenary so he would be on the low side of whimsical other than picking fights over minor things as a point of pride. Ironic now that I think about it.
>>51210926He's right, you fucking dunce, Houyo would be pronounced "ho-uyo"Jesus, if you're going to be a shameless fucking weeb at least be correct about it.
>>51211303Well, we also have a That Guy who won't fucking compromise on the pronunciation of his characters name.So it's really a wash.
>>51210941Looks like I struck a nerve. Perhaps >>>/reddit/ might be a better posting environment for you, considering how easily your feelings are hurt
>>51211287We're still going to see each other often even if I'm not in his campaign. I'd rather get me feelings out there instead of politely holding in my autistic rage.
>>51210926Was it so hard to just write it like Huyo? Hou and who being pronounced the same is stupid and can only happen in the retarded language known as english, anyways.
>>51211343>is my incredible GMing too INTENSE for you?>better go cry about it like my players do>hahaha I am the best GM
>>51211267>Most linguists wouldn't be this pedanticCitation needed there, pal. If you're really a linguist you know this isn't actually true.
>>51211356Yeah, it was. I'm not a fan of people trying to lord petty bullshit rules that I disagree with over me. I recognized that he cared more about the way I pronounced something than my control over my own character. It could only get worse from there so I'm politely stepping back.
>>51211413That's "you WOULD know". Present prescriptive.I-I mean-... fuck.
>>51211433Just according to keikaku
>>51211476Ah, yes. Kay-cake-you. My 5th level tarutaru lorekeeper.
>>51211509OP status: roasted
>>51211424DudeYou are arguing witha linguist over a nameOf course he's gonna be bothered by itThats like getting mad at a politition who called you an idiot after you said some stupid shit without knowing how the economy works
>>51210444Trips dont lie
>>51211570>implying the politicians don't say dumb shit about the economy as wellBad example
>>51211351Don't be a kunto, OP. It's not his fault YOU chose to join a game DMed by someone you hate, or that you chose to trigger his linguist autism with your fifth grade weaboo ninja sekrit identity.
>>51211601He's got a good point nonetheless.It's like arguing with an accountant about your tax forms.It's like arguing with a mechanic about fuel ratios.It's like arguing with OP about anal circumference and semen poisoning.
>>51211619He's not being a kyoon-tee-hyo by giving context about That GM in a That GM thread.The only really cunni-heat-oo thing he's done is hang onto the name so long.
>>51211570No, it's like arguing with a politician about an imaginary fantasy economy. If it was his setting I wouldn't mind so much. But it's a setting he's borrowing from a game and inflicting his head canon on me over something so insanely minor yet adamant about I can't help but feel moving on this point wouldn't be like rolling over at his tiniest whim.
>>51211601Politicians are the ones who say dumb shit about everything, they don't count.
>>51211696man, you are still explaining yourself to an anon who wrote you off twenty replies ago. "moving on points" isn't your strong suit.
>>51211646Or arguing with a physicist about physicsAnd yet I don't feel like constantly correcting everyone getting something wrong
>>51211727One of the first things you learn as a physics student is that you have a choice: be correct, or be tolerable to anyone than other physicists.
>>51211723I didn't come to /tg/ to be rational. I do that enough in real life. I came here to be an anonymous piss baby and vent in the only reasonable social outlet for such a thing.
>>51211330No it wouldn't you spaz, an 'ou' is a long o in Japanese- Ō
>>51211750I was just thinking, it's been like 2 years since I've been on /tg/, and I really missed the combination of advice and trolling and affection vitriol in threads like this. Can't get it anywhere else.
>>51211696Op, you're not in the right here. Your DM knows how Japanese pronunciation works, and your stupid OC Donut Steel weeb name triggered the everloving shit out of his linguistic sensibilities.Just admit that ten-year-old you had no idea how Houyo would actually be pronounced in glorious Nippon, change the spelling to Huyo and get on with your game.It sounds like neither you nor your DM will have an easy time trying to find new people to play with, so it is in both of your best interests to concede to his autism on this one point, at the very least.
>>51211749One of the first things within reasonable margin of error of +/- 100000 things.Go back to modelling your dick as a sphere, you pretentious fuck.
I don't think I've ever seen an OP so soundly BTFOGood work /tg/
>>51211777>My OC, Donut Steel, or as it's pronounced in the lingua franca of our setting, Xylophone
>>51211831>you're both being a little silly about this>hOLY SHIT OP got bloWn thE FUcK OUT HAHAHA INCREDIBLE, SO WRECKED, U MAD OP
>>51211823You seem upsetIf there a reason for it?
>>51211880Nice try OP
>>51211892Like OP, I also came here to be an anonymous pissbaby and vent about things.Fuckin' physicists, man.
>>51211914I'm sorry anon, but I'm not OPI sure hope however that you may find peace for yourself
>>51211941Kunto, paladin of the realm, has come to offer spiritual healing to the tortured residents of OP's shit thread.
>>51210441CUNT-O. So I was right about comparing you to the player that wanted his paladin to be named Peenus.
>>51212549Read the thread.
Reminds me of a DM I had back in college who had a homebrew sword and sorcery world, something along the lines of Conan. It was a fun enough place to adventure in, lots of grim fantasy fun. A lot better than a good deal of what he ran for us previously, which seemed odd for a giga-SJW. But there was just one little morsel that filled me and another of his players with laughter to the point of tears. The Dark Continent, filled with dark-skinned slavers and mystics, of devil-worshipers and drug-peddling savages? Qunistan. Pronounced COON-UH-STAN.
>>51212606Qunistan, and its proud capitol, Nigratan.
>>51212852Nigratan is of course, home to the elite soldiery of Qunistan, the fearsome Neegar Elite.
>>51201161If I were the GM, I'd just pronounce it however I liked (how it is written). If a player comes up with a silly name, I'm inclined to make it even sillier. They can say it how they want & I can say it how I want. That's the beauty of names. Since there's only so many people at the table, it'll be clear to them when I'm referring to their character, even if my pronunciation is different. And they'll still respond. And gradually their name will change to the version I use. If they're stubborn and stick with their way the whole time, that's fine, too. I applaud them for sticking to it.
>>51211092Exactly>Sir Osis of Liver>Sir Kull of Trust>Sir Pent of Slytherin
>>51201703>Players find out GM sucks, leave game en masse>GM has no players>GM doesn't get to play anymoreIt really is that simple, faggot
>another player tells me something that is a lie>my character believes him even though I as a player know its a lie>later it comes up in an interaction where I have to convince a villager to help us>DM refuses to let me roll persuasion because "it's still a lie"
>>51210926When romanized, "ou" is a long 'o.' You truly are a Kunto. You can't even make "who-yo" in the standard hiragana syllabary. The closest you can get it "Fuyo."Fucking weebs I swear to god.
>>51213274Hello, OP's GM.
>>51211646As a mechanic, people are free to mess with their A/F ratios as much as they want, just ends up with me earning some cash.But I do get your point.
>>51201653>If you don't agree with me you're a faggot
>>51213414do you know where you are
>>51213498MODS PLEASE BLAM THIS PIECE OF CRAP

>>51211068>>51210926>>51201612As I said earlier, you’re both being immature pricks.You are being an uncreative, inflexible, immature prick by refusing to change your character’s name from the one you always use.Furthermore, you are making it worse by not just leaving it be.The exchange should have been:>My name is Houyo-Matriyo. I pronounce it "who-yo".>That's not the correct way to pronounce it via Japanese language conventions and you need to either say it right or change the spelling. >He's a fucking imaginary fantasy midget in a setting that has no japan and isn’t even yours>No dice.>Okay, you write the name however you want to in your personal notes and I’ll do the same on mine, it won’t be a big deal>No. I insist that if he signs anything IC that it would be the *correct* spelling.>Whatever helps you sleep at night man.That should have been the end of it.However, he is also being an inflexible, immature prick by not letting you use a name that is setting appropriate.In my opinion, he is actually worse because while you are citing “It’s my character, it’s setting appropriate, and I don’t wanna.” as your justification, which is thin but sensible, the GM is citing “The name does not match linguistic naming conventions of a real language that I have arbitrarily decided apply, in their entirety, to a fantasy race in a setting that is not of my design.” as his justification, which is asinine.Congratulations Kunto, son of Faget, you are the slightly less immature toddler fighting in the playpen.
Pt 2>The NPC vs. NPC fight seems fair but then asshole McGee plaugedoctor decides he's bored making two NPC's fight so he summons 2 wraiths and they help the rebel leader win.>Plague Douchbag tells DM the king wouldn't have seen him cast those spells to summon.>King realizes he's lost, makes a run for it>Doctor finally wakes up our fighter and tells him to shot the king.Fighter is hyped af to actually do something, and rolls a D20 beheads king with one shot from his bow, everyone flips shit in excitement.>We think its done, but plauge douche goes up and performs a spell to talk to the dead.>DM allows it, there is still treasure to find.Also says we can finally wake up (after asking plague doctor)>Plague douche says he is told that this king was not the real king.(THIS IS NOT THE DM SAYING THIS!) >DM is unsure but after a word with plague douche he's got a new plot.>Session ends with me leading the way into a dungeon, only for plauge douch to say this is where the session ends and going in there will be death for me.>Ignore plauge douches attempt to pull me out of the dungeon.He closes the stone vault door behind me as I enter.>He convinces DM to have me die by pool of undead as punishment and have to make new character.I literally could not stand the fuckery this guy was pulling.Why do toxic DM's have to poison the new ones with their bullshit.
>>51210498D&D is a game that you win or lose based on whether you succeed or fail at obtaining treasure (and leveling up).
>>51211097>>51211413What? If I know anything about linguists, it's that they're at the top of the list for to get triggered by grammatical prescriptivism.
>>51212927This. I was playing a NE undead asshole in a party once, and the depths of his depravity and nefariousness were such that he took every possible opportunity to confuse everyone else about whether our Hobgoblin PC's name was Henrich or Heinrich.This was aided in-character by the fact he had maxed out Bluff, and out-of-character by the fact that I did not, and do not, know which one was actually correct.
>>51211356>>51211777Given OP's account of the GM's reasoning, he'd've asked for it to be written "Fuuyo" (or "Huuyo" if he's a kunrei-shiki fag).
>>51213871Holy shit anon, just torch it with fucking fire.
>>51213871>>51213635Never heard of a DMPC by proxy before.The guy was literally playing a DMPC while not being the DM, that's impressive shittery.Talk to your DM away from the that guy and explain that he is not "correct", that his "experience" is not helping, and that your GM was doing better before he started *obeying* the other guy.
>>51214046I should, but it was 2 in the morning and I was pissed so in the end I said fuck it and left the group, told the DM I'm not coming back.I will talk to him about it some time.But for now I'll sulk and drink to another DnD group ruined by that asshole.
>>51210926You must out-sperg the sperg. Tell him the kanji is usually read as ほぉ but is supposed to be read as ふぅ and that it shouldn't matter if it uses a non-standard romanization because Hepburn was devised by a shifty Western pig.
>>51206410Yeah they're really piling up the Haraldr Rolfrssons.I'm gonna be blunt, dude. Having been there for an extended period, it was rare to run into two people with the same combination of names. Keep in mind the country has a population of like 350k. Even in Reykjavik you might have a dozen people sharing a name combo.
>>51214295This. To defeat the mightiest opponent you must become as them and destroy them from within.
>>51211267>Most linguists wouldn't be this pedantic.As a linguist, you're wrong.
>>51213274I was 11 years old when I made the name. It was a random series of sounds I liked. The arguement wasn't that it was right or wrong, it's that it wasn't Japanese so it wasn't wrong.
>>51210997Hrm. Very nice. Top notch.
>>51213263That's fucking stupid. If you don't know it's a lie, you aren't lying. Persuation all over that bitch.
>>51211770You have good opinions. Carry on.
>>51211965This Kunto is he man or myth? Or legend sung of in song?
Kunto, you made a great thread.
>>51215350If you were making a Japanese name you'd be 100% incorrect, which you seem to know.Things are definitely complicated by the DM's insistence that this fantasy language behaves exactly like Japanese. That's the real sticking point.>>51211267>irregularities pop up in language all the timeA) Not every language is EnglishB) Japanese is a P H O N E T I C L A N G U A G E
>>51216043Japanese isn't perfect, either; see: "を", "は", and "へ"
>>51216211Yeah, but those are pretty well set in stone. My point is there wouldn't be some random word that's pronounced oddly just because.
>>51201530Slap him in the mouth
>>51201161>>51201612>The name and the pronunciation is important to me for personal reasons.Sounds like you're a furfag. Yes, that is a red flag.
>>51207909>>51208404>>51208623>>51208736I would just like to remind all the anglos that the vowel in 'Björk' is the same as the one in 'purse'. You can all stop saying bee-york now. You're welcome.
>>51201595>a lot of guys acting like old Grognards as mentioned aboveWhat are you talking about? This kind of story RP is thoroughly new school bullshit. I can't imagine any grognard having anything to do with it. That DM then would be murder happy or monty hall DM's.
>>51216625o shit nigger u dun it nao
>>51216543This.The fact you're making a huge ordeal about a fucking shitty made up name because it means sooooooooooooo much to you makes you an even bigger autist than your shitty autist DM.
>>51216543Nah, I'd fuck a furry but I'd fuck a lot of crazy things. Humans are definitely hotter. Hell, robots usually rank higher than furries for me.
>>51210673and cunto was his name-oh
>>51210941He's arguing against, not for, RAW, retard.>>51201708>>51201612No, the red flag is your autism against changing any minor detail of your perfectly built little character to fit the GM's setting. Chances are he was testing YOU to make sure you don't destroy the campaign halfway through. Forget your perfect little name, what happens when things don't go just as planned according to the oh so important narrative setup by your backstory? Table flip? Or are your breakdowns of the more internal sort?
>>51210926>I pronounce it "who-yo".Retard.hou = hoo = HAW as in yo = YAWhou-yo = HAW-YAWEven if it was two words 'ho-uyo', the first vowel sound would not be like the one in "who", but the one in "hot".
>>51205023>you cannot name your child duke, prince, baron etc as the inbred parasiteds that stole the country don't like the jews?
Hey what are your guys favourite characters? I love rye-you in street fighter and asucker in evangelion
>>51211570I bet OP's specialty is historical armor or something and he reees just as much when someone says platemail.
>>51216716It's a campaign based off of an MMO setting. I made a character based off the character I played in the MMO. That was the entire reason I wanted to play in his campaign. It's an already established character. If I've got to change his name I might as well play an entirely new character. I mean, if you gotta make up all this random stuff and assume I'm some kinda asshole then I'm not gonna stop you. But I've already said what I do. Try to work out a solution and then politely step away from the campaign if it feels not worth playing. We've been playing in the same gaming group for about a year now and he's never been the DM. There hasn't been any issues. But let's face it. You're going to believe what you want regardless of what I say. So just try to have a nice day, okay?
>>51213845>The name does not match linguistic naming conventions of a real language that I have arbitrarily decided apply, in their entirety, to a fantasy race in a setting that is not of my design.”It's of Japanese design though. Who use Japanese pronunciation for it.
>>51216851>It's an already established character. If I've got to change his name I might as well play an entirely new character. Grow up
>>51216936I'm playing imaginary play pretend games.No.
>>51216851And my WoW character was called Rekttheslayerr, I'm not demanding to play a character called that in a Warcraft RPG
>>51216952Congrats. I'm not demanding anything either.
>>51216944Well, at least you seem to take a hint when your autism is burdening others.
>>51201474You know, that only really hurts the other players. If you want to stick it to a bad GM, address his players at the table tell them you're going to run a game, your own game, with Blackjack and hookers. Then he has to convince another four to five people that he's not a complete asshole.
>>51216981Hey, if you wanna feel like you're better than me then go ahead. I hope your day goes well regardless.
>start new DnD campaign>roll a 1 on game's 1st initiative roll>GM makes it a critical failure and penalizes mePlease tell me I'm not the only one who gets triggered by this.
>>51201161My character's name is Jacob!>Alright, fine. It's spelled Yoykobb!>Please don't do this.Yooykuubb Tehdestray! Pronounced Jacob Drestey! >Can you stop shitting on the campaign, anon?That gm spotted!
>>51217070"Your character is so slow that he gets disadvantage on everything while everybody gets advantage against him. It's like he's in slow motion, lol"
>>51210533>"cunt">>51210926>russian for "dick"ы
>>51217183Wait. Russian for dick?
>>51217183>>51217269I just looked it up. This is both the best and worst thing that has ever happened.
>>51210926I would have come back with "フクユ ニガ-" written for my character's name. See how long it takes him to figure it out.Bonus points if he takes it to Google translate cause he didn't sound it out and thinks it means something.
>>51217324I can't read the first part off the top of my head but I've assimilated enough to recognize the latter as "nigga".
>>51217269Yeah, he really needs to slow down!
>>51217365It says "Fukuyu niga-"
>>51217183>>russian for "dick">>51217285>I just looked it up. This is both the best and worst thing that has ever happened.What am I missing here?What is Russian for dick?All I'm getting for Russian dick is явнo нeдocтaтoчнo
>>51217609Evidently Houyo, the name OP was clinging too so tightly, translates to dick in Russian.
>>51217609Put "Houyo" into Google Translate as Russian, in the phonetic typing mode.
>>51217627It's actually хyй (khui).
>>51217609>What is Russian for dick?Ur mom :^)
>>51217627>>51217637Ah. It wasn't working on the front page for some reason. Got it now.>>51217650My joke was better
>>51208873Not necessarily. The PC dieing like a bitch could 100% be the fault of a bad DM being a cunt by doing something like "Suddenly an Elder Red Dragon attacks your level 5 party". That is of course not always the case but it can happen. The inverse isn't really possibly though because if a player tries to pull shit like that a good GM can and should just say "no".
>>51206464You forgot to halve it as 350 out of those 700 names will be female and thus can't be the father's first name.
>>51217805>Dying like a bitch>Dying while fighting a fucking Elder Red DragonPick one.But your point stands, mine too, kinda.A GM could kill you for no reason like a cunto, but then it's your fault for playing with a cunt of a GM, kinda.
>>51217183>Russian for "dick"Well, this caps wonderful thread!
>>51201161>in a larp just after a partial reset and 100yr time skip>be one out of four players from a 'new' city with no established lore (Ivory Tower)>character has 'Ivory' as surname of his false identity>write short bit on how bastards and foundlings are named this way there (think 'Snow' in GoT)>GM refuses name because of thisI could understand in an TTRPG where there's a realistic chance of going to said city, but flat out refusing an inconsequential bit of info on a city with two pages of established lore, in a larp (where the setting is hugely influenced by the players anyway)? Instant red flag for me.
>>51216851>Bringing a prior character into a new campaign I hate this shit.
>>51218397I can see it.I have half a dozen characters I liked that were in games that fizzled.I'd like to bring them back and continue their story.Unless we're starting at level one.That gets stupid.But always, ALWAYS playing the same dick?That's annoying as shit.I really liked Riddick.I don't wanna see him in every damn story.
>>51202576I'm guessing it's gaelic, and therefore the spelling is a trap for us anglophones?
>>51204420There are a few countries that do that, although in most of them you can apply to have your snowflake name approved by the name-lords. doesn't happen very often though
>>51218554If I'm making a new game the least you can do is make a new character for it.
>>51205023Bullshit.Sacha Baron Cohen is from the UKThere was British boxer called Duke McKenzieThere was a British businessman involved in the production of the first transatlantic telegraph cable whose first name is BaronAlso a British artist with the first name Baron.There's no law against naming yourself these things, it's just considered rather gauche. Probably why you Americans like using titles as given names so much...
>>51218397It's okay. I'm not upset that we enjoy different things.
>>51210926Okay, so then the GM could just assume the character's parents were just dumbasses when they named him.If he's been calling himself "who-yo" all his life, then I don't see the big fucking deal. It's the character's name, even if it is spelled incorrectly. Why not just let him be "who-yo" and move on with the damn game instead of wasting time on inane bullshit like that?
>>51218652So if I make a new character I've never played before, does that mean you can't run any scenario you've run before?No quantum ogres for you.Meh.If it matters, it matters.But it doesn't always matter.
>>51205520>>51204420Denmark has a list of 7000 names that parents may pick from. Anything else must be approved by the government. Iceland technically doesn't have a list, but you must use a name that is already in use in Iceland. If you want to use another name, you have to pay for it and the name will be reviewed and either accepted or denied.
>>51218755I don't rerun scenarios.
>>51218762So if you want another name you can ask the government in Denmark?
>>51218883How many times have the PCs met in a tavern?Heh, nah.I believe you.But I stand by my position.It don't matter unless It matters.
>>51213871Holy shit, what a fucking dick. I mean, that's some really slimy scumlord shit right there.
>>51218897You have to ask an employed priest for permission to contact the government.They usually decline wierd names and alternative spellings of common names. But otherwise they're pretty reasonable.
>>51210533>"fitness" for finnish
>Send my sheet to GM>He says everything checks out except one thing>Have to change my character from female to male>Ask him why>Says because im a guy that playing a guy is the only way we can have serious roleplay>mfw
>>51203995Honestly, if you're trying to get new players into the hobby (including yourself) you're probably better off running a more light hearted campaign to start with. New players may have trouble taking role playing seriously, using humor to overcome their embarrasment at what is essentially sitting around playing make believe.
>>51210983If this was all the GM was supposed to do, nobody would ever GM. Faggots that think like this literally ruin the hobby.
>>51219151Well, there's lighthearted and then there's lulrandumb.Jamhorn Glittergold? Fine. Humorous characters can work.Memester the Faggoning? No. Characters that are an excuse to joke are always shit.Those names seemed like they could go either way.
>scifi horror game>entire game set up to hype up some lovecraftian horror>decide to roleplay>have my character go badshit insane and just shoot the entire armoury at the thing that lurks in the shadows>"oh no, shit. you killed it. can you give me 5 minutes?"WHAT KIND OF RETARDED DM PUTS MOTHERFUCKING HITPOINTS ON SOME COSMIC HORROR MONSTER?This fucking retard then decided to end the campaign on "uuuuh, uuuh, uuh, uh, lol the facility is about to blow up, hurry to get on the ship and leave. u win da gaem!" after 3 weeks of relatively good quality horror tension.I don't even. I swear the DM must have ripped off the idea of the campaign somewhere else because no way someone puts up an effective campaign like this only to have the climax ruined by a single guy with a grenade launcher and a box of ammo.I just wanted my character to go out in a blaze of glory only experience a fate far worse than death...
>>51201161I had a character called Siobhan. This is pronounced Shivon, it's an Irish name. I suffered the same thing as you.Considering I was a tottie-picking drunken Catholic Oirishman who shits green, I think I'd know how to pronounce a name from my country.
>>512015953e is actually the start of the idiocy because of it dumbing down the game to get more people into it by having rules for every petty thing, resulting in soulless dolls with no self-awareness playing it.
>>51219243I vastly preferred 4e's methods on that front. Thousands of pointless rules is a lot worse than 'Here is a skill system, it works and isn't ignored by spells. The GM can adjudicate which skill works best in a situation'
>>51208162You realize "battle-hardened" is an adjective right
>>51219243>>51219269Let's not forget that less rules means that slowly players become more comfortable playing a role, improvising.When everything is laid out in rules, you don't play a role, you look up rules and references.
>>51210693Yeah god forbid one of our children has a name that was not approved by our ancestors three hundred years ago. Fuck off
>>51218587>I'm guessing it's gaelic, and therefore the spelling is a trap for us anglophones?Irish, but yes.
>>51211413You stupid fucker. I'm a linguist and I can tell you that grammatical descriptivism is what we do. If you're a prescriptivist and you're calling yourself a linguist, odds are you're actually just an English major who wants a fancier title. For fuck's sake, it's a science, and science observes and defines the natural world. When was the last fucking time you saw a marine biologist tell a fucking dolphin that it shouldn't be in the ocean because it's a mammal that breathes air? Or the last time a god damn geologist told the earth it was wrong because the mineral he found isn't usually in that environment? Linguists describe language, pedants try to police it. Fuck.
>>51210693Tradition is to be ignored, spat on, and discarded. Sacred cows are to be taken to the slaughter the instant they stop giving milk.
>>51219772By all known laws of aviation, a bee shouldn't be able to fly. The bee, of course, flies anyways.
>>51213877>D&D is a game you win or loseYou're already in the wrong mindset, friendo
>>51219931>the bee movie but every time they say bee it gets translated into a random English dialect
>>51219931That's a retarded lie brought about because someone fucked up a typo on their paper and did the whole thing thinking they hadn't. They later had it pointed out to them, but by that time it was published and had become memetastic. It's wrong, you're wrong, kindly stop immediately and kys.
>>51206952>https://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%8Dslensk_mannan%C3%B6fn_eftir_notkunwhy the fuck are drengur and stulka on that list?
>>51219223>"oh no, shit. you killed it. can you give me 5 minutes?"Fucking LEL
>>51201474Yep, very petty.
>>51209759>Ab-ben DawnI don't know what this is.
>>51221204AbandonI mentioned the word in the story as a clue.
>>51221204>>51221543I saw it as "I bend down", and thought "Ab-ben Auer" would have been better.
>>51202576My first guess would be something like "Roh-weh"? I know them 'bh' digraphs ain't pronounced the way they look like they're pronounced in English but I don't know how they're actually pronounced either.
>>51210613Fucking niggers, man. Just have a name that makes sense like everyone else.
>>51215770That's what I tried to tell him, all the other players were on my side too but he wouldn't budge.
