    Sounds like your players are sons of bitches. Your only option is to dress up like Chad Kroeger and sing Nickelback songs at them while you wale away on an electric guitar. Standing on a massive amp while you do this isn't required, but it would definitely give you a bonus on your Intimidate check. Also, you may need to get Santana involved for a single, should any particularly stubborn players be in your group.

    Good luck.

    ya know, I've experienced several of these scenarios, both as a player and DM. I tried to learn from them, with varying levels of success.

    gotta say, honestly, I've gotten so good at mental Tai Chi that every stupid half-wit idea that they blurt out gets turned into almost pure gold, and they get pushed along the prewritten adventure path (currently running Savage Tide again) and think to themselves all along "oh, man, I am so awesome! my character is so uber! our party is so great! this is so awesome!"

    I've kind of become like a parent that's bored with their kids bringing home stories from 1st grade every day. "thats nice dear. daddy's trying to read a book. go play outside."

    I seriously don't think they notice that ~I~ put all that together for them. ~I~ am the clever sonuvabitch that has made this story your greatest triumph, dipshit. I took some standard stuff from a magazine and adapted it into the hardcore metal shit you crave. and these motherfuckers won't even pay me.

    how big of a boat was it?

    did you ask how close to the boat the octopus was?

    still, deffinately cheap.

    I had a DM that liked to throw really retarded shit at me. really grotesque stuff that was an embarrassment to the game, really. counter-character tactics and "your worst nightmare" kind of shit. but it'd always be some fucked up illusion. so I'd just start every game with him with "I make a will save to disbelieve." and I'd do that every 15 minutes or so. it got to be real bullshit.

    another time, I spent a whole fucking game investigating a mystery that led me back to a cleric that claimed to be of the same faith as my Paladin. when I finally started suspecting him, I asked "what color are his robes?"


    "thats not the standard robes of my clergy. he's an impostor. why didn't you say he was out of the ordinary to begin with instead of fucking with me for the past 3 hours?"

    "you didn't ask."

    seriously, I fucking STILL RAGE about that, and that was 6 years ago. I stopped playing with that guy after that.

    Do said players not do ANYTHING unless they're being railroaded? And even then they still don't do anything even if they're given plothooks specifically tailored to them?

    Or maybe they don't have any character motivation or thoughts beyond, "I will kill the thing that is between me and things that I want!"

    yeah we have those and they suck. Especially when Oblivious McNotDoAnything was like YOU ARE FAVORING m/ShI!!1 because my character went from sucking horribly to being awesome over the course of the game due to NPC influence and my OWN choices and actions (as well as the goals I started out with).

    I actually know how to put some pretty tantalizing bait in front of them. they're predictable. predictably difficult too, like the one who ALWAYS wants to play a homebrewed/unnapproved race/class/prestige class. or the one who absolutely HAS to play chaotic nuetral or evil in a chaotic good driven campaign. or the dick who just WONT listen when I say "the party has two rangers, a rogue, a wizard and a cleric, and a monk, but we have no heavy martial class and no extra healing. I recomend chaotic good pali/barbar, there's even a special story arc for just that type, and I know you're good at it from the last time you played it."

    ... so he plays a nuetral ranger/sorcerer pirate asshole that uses gay ass clawed gauntlets and fills no important roll.

    then he tells me he's got "the black sopt" ala POTC, and can't go on teh water or a boat...

    in a nautical campaign at low levels.

    not trying to railroad the guy, just honestly trying to play to his strengths for his own sake. his best ideas usually revolve around that genre, and that's usually when he has the most fun, because it comes naturally to him (this is a friend of 10 years, so I know this about him. this was an attempt to give him some spotlight and some good gaming oppertunity, since he hadn't played wit hus in a long time.)

    but that ranger/sorcerer was just poorly thought out and ended up being next to useless. the bow ranger and wizard were better blasters, the two-weapon ranger and the rogue had the flanking game down, and both were dual-weilders. the character he ended up making, even thoug he KNEW what the party was made of, he still decided against that suggestion.

    I know my players. I don't think he did it to be contrary, not entirely anyway, but he did surprise me. but he got mad at ME when the character he built just didn't stack up. even after I told him so.

    and THAT, my friend, is why I fucking RAGE about it. I really don't support the idea of MAKING anyone play a specific type of character. I usually end up biting the bullet and letting them play it. but if they put it together poorly in a failed experiment and don't try to work WITH me on it, and they get smeared by a trap or waylaid by a random encounter monster, thats their own fault. I gave every oppertunity.

    Sure that pirate guy is lame but as far as classes in a tabletop game go.....

    It's not WoW. You don't -need- a holy paladin, prot warrior, and combat rogue to kill the BBEG. And should be able to adapt an encounter as needed or the players should find creative ways around "missing" classes.

    IE: "The dwarf fighter, the human fighter, and the gnome fighter of the band of beards stumble upon a trap! There is a medium vent in the ceiling with a grate on it, and The walls begin to close in AND POISON FUCKING GAS IS RISING FROM THE FLOOR!"
