    ITT: The most Groan-inducing character concepts you've ever seen.

    My group are weaboos. I won't try to claim that I'm a pretty cool guy who hatez animu and doesn't afraid of anything. I like a lot of the old-school stuff, especially grimdark sci-fi like Ghost in the Shell, Armored Trooper VOTOMS or Alita. However, they are into stuff like Naruto.

    Anyway, I DM a Shadowrun game for them and the group loves the shit out of it. There's a little something for everyone. The William Gibson fans get their cyberpunk on, the fans of the supernatural get to rub shoulders with spirits and the punks get to say "screw the Man" even as they are doing his dirty work. Everyone is happy.

    Until one of our players approaches me and says he wants to bring his girlfriend into the group. Just the mention of the world "girlfriend" pegs my drama radar almost immediately. Like an idiot, I ignore it.

    (Story to continue. The OP pic is indeed related. Keep reading to find out how.)

    Oh yes, the girlfriend. This will end well.

    We had some inter-group dating going on at one time. The drama was mostly behind the scenes thank goodness, but both sides tried to recruit me to their point of view. It eventually ended with the girl leaving our circle of friends. Shit sucks because she was the ONLY girl.

    I've been in that situation before, only the break up was between THAT GUY and his girlfriend had the most obnoxious wannabe jock friends ever. And they started harassing THAT GUY to the point of trashing his room, stealing all of his shit, and actually threatening him with a gun. And the ex did nothing about her friends. So in the end I took THAT GUY's side.

    Almost had a group ruined by girlfriend drama. There was this nice 6/10 nerdy girl that a couple of guys in my group fell for, and they both wanted her bad, and she had to pick one of them, so of course, the guy that doesn't get her immediately gets moody and pissy. I thought, alright, it's a phase, I'll let him deal with it.

    A fucking month later, he still wasn't over it, and instigated arguments with the other guy every other time, was always a dick to the girl, and it translates into the game as well, as he tries to screw over their characters constantly.

    Pulled him aside, asked him to cut it out and deal with his shit or he's not welcome at my games anymore. Turns out, he still couldn't deal with it and I thought it'd be best if he just stopped coming, and it's been all the better for it without the stupid jealousy drama.

    Well, next session rolls around and the girlfriend walks in. Not a bad looking girl. Skinny with dark brown hair, glasses and a mousey but cute face. Kind of the stereotypical nerdy girl. However, red flags start going up all over the place when I notice that she dresses like an explosion in a Hot Topic.

    My ire was further raised by the fact that they showed up an hour and a half late. I could spend half this post ranting about that, but this thread is about groan inducing character concepts. Let's just say she dragged him to an expensive sushi bar on the other side of town, didn't bring us any and every time I called his response was "Don't start yet, I'll be there in 15 minutes."

    Now, we sit down to start character creation. Character creation in Shadowrun 4th is a pretty involved process and I asked her to show up early, but sushi run. She immediately asks if she can play a Free Spirit. On day one of this campaign, I politely asked my players not to make Free Spirit characters. When I explain this, she gets pissy and tries to talk her way into doing it anyway.

    Turns out she had a character concept already in mind, an ancient Kitsune spirit.

    >Ancient Kitsune Spirit

    You know, if she had shown up on time instead of making everyone else wait on her, I probably would've given her the benefit of the doubt and let her do it. That kind of blatant disregard for other people's schedules kind of tips you off that she's not going to play nice with the rest of the group in the actual game though.

    Am I the only one who thinks that having a Kitsune in our party (of course, not in the lol kawaii vein) but a nature's spirit trying to work with mortals against its own ancestral rules to be a good concept for a PC?

    I find religion and mysticism to be really engaging and powerful storytelling devices, the japanese folklore's pretty interesting (not as much as hindi and judeo-christian mythology) but I can't just throw them out because of the weaboo stereotypes.

    Also, look at that fox...shit's crazy.

    After about 3 minutes of Hot Topic girl whining, her boyfriend jumps in. Que 15 minutes of them trying to tag-team me into letting her play a Free Spirit, despite this race being incredibly broken. Through the entire discussion, I was diplomatic. I kept offering suggestions to re-work the character concept. Hot Topic girl was having none of it.

    It took our group's Rigger, a long time friend of mine and Ex-Marine telling them to shut the fuck up to get them off my case. Finally Hot Topic girl agrees to use one of my suggestions.

    We end up with this delightful character.

    Rumiko: a changeling mage from Japan. Rumiko awakened at an early age and was raised in the Shinto tradition. However, one night a terrible demon attacked her shrine. Rumiko tried to fight the creature, but her magic was too weak. In desperation she reached out to the ancient Kitsune spirit of the shrine, whos energy filled her. When she awoke, Rumiko found she had fox ears and a tail."

    That's it. That is a highly condensed version of, horribly written, cliche-laden, three page back story she handed in. No motivation to oppose the Megacorps, no rationale for moving to Seattle, nothing. To give you an idea of how bad this shit was, she mentions Rumiko being neglected by her parents and raped by her cousin. Then, three paragraphs later, mentions losing her virginity.

    And she got upset when I only gave 1 bonus Karma for it. I was being generous.

    (was there drama? Holy fuck was there drama! Stay tuned)

    Sounds good. I limit my player's backstory to a wordcount, usually something like 3-4 hundred. If they can't get the point across in that much space, they can probably refine the concept a bit. I'm fine with fleshing a character out, but if more of their development takes place out of game than in, they not much of a character.

    Legend of the Five Rings game. Concept is PCs are involved in the founding of a Minor Clan (in this case, the Bat). We have characters who are joining the new clan, others who are just here to watch/help out and a shugenja who uses the spirits to help him cook. Hopefully to create a new school from it.

    Yep. Magic cooking. Then he dithered about which weapon would be the best one. By "best," I mean, which would do the most damage. He had to be convinced that trying to get a fighter's damage output as a wizard was a bad idea.

    Looking back, I can see why that game died so early; too many diverse characters. Most of them were decent though.

    I store all the worst character sheets I have GMed in my hall of shame binder. One day I am going to light them all on fire, preform the ritual of underping and offer them up as a sacrifice to the Goddess of Mary Sues. Once she is summoned in her rainbow aura that displays her radiant multi shaded red hair and changing colored eyes, she will go off and find those who follow her ways by making true Mary Sue characters. She will then absorb them into her and take them with her to their alternate dimension that will make a Slanneshi Orgy look like church with the amount of rainbowous furry/sparkly bullshit that ensues. I will then having rid the world of their kind have a nice glass of scotch and smoke a cigar with fire from the ritual.

    amazingly enough, one of the BEST backstories/character concepts came from rifts.

    the characters parents were a pair of scavengers in russia, while exploring the ruins of a city they fell through the moscow rift and wound up in north america, they wound up in the chi-town burbs and had a child named niko. nikos parents were very busy trying to make ends meet so niko was usually left to his own devices, he hung out with a lot of mechanics and tech scavengers and learned from them...when he grew up he was a pretty good operator, and left home to become a travelling mechanic and repair stuff in the various towns and shitholes across north america

    Single most groan inducing character concept I ever did:
    Shardborn Monk who basically acted like a traveling sheriff bringing law to the lawless.

    The kicker is he was also an innkeeper. His inn was inside of a stage coach sort of wagon with a pocket dimension to hold said inn, pulled by a dire wolf.

    I wanted a trade that'd make me money and give me the ability to travel and my DM gave me a bunch of options for random shit I could find in town to finish this plan. This was the best I could come up with.

    Well, it went about as well as you could expect. Hot Topic girl tried to jump in without permission twice. When she finally was included, Rumiko gained an immediate romantic attraction to her boyfriend's character for no logical reason despite having known each other only 5 minutes.

    To give you an idea of how much Rumiko clashed with the rest of the party, I'm going to describe them for you.

    1. Joyce: A Troll heavy weapons specialist who fancied himself a warrior poet. He would quote grimdark poetry while gunning down mooks with Assault Cannons.

    2. Spazz: Our slightly insane female ork gun adept. Kept a running tally of how many people she killed by making scratch marks in the barrel of her Ruger Super Warhawk.

    3. Cap'n Crunch: Our human hacker, Addicted to Mythic Age ( the Shadowrun version of WoW) and a total junk food junkie.

    4. Jack: the rigger. A dwarf in an A-Team van that was almost completely filled with Drone Racks. He seemed to have a drone for every situation you can immagine, and some you can't. Lives in a junkyard in Snohomish.

    5. Kira: the Boyfriend's character. A japanese elf Street Sam. insisted on bioware. To be fair, he was a pretty munchined out character who could quickly turn a mob of gangers or rent-a-cops into a red smoothie inside two combat rounds with his Katanas.

    Fortunately, this story has a happy ending.

    After about 3 sessions, I was approached by the other players. Turns out, the other players were just as annoyed as I was with out new "addition" and her beau.

    Ugh. /tg/ asks. So I must deliver. That being said, I FUCKING WARNED YOU FA/TG/UYS!

    I guess it is typing time. Time for dumping my hall of shame.

    She wields the Shining true blade of the most high ascending heavens (this is actually in Japanese) The Sheath of the blade is made out a rare Shibuci Adamantium Combination that forms a rainbow-like patina up to the hilt. Anyone who gazes upon the sheath of the blade must make a will check to not become enthralled by the bearer of the blade. The Sheath carries the name Puriest holder of the most high blade. Uttering this name of the blade calls upon it's true form which is an ancient prismatic dragon that answers only to the true wielder of the blade. This ability can be used at will three times daily as three is the holy and most awesome number. As long as the True bearer of the sword remains true to the purpose of the sword the sheath of the sword gives the bearer of the sword true immortality. This cannot be reversed in anyway shape or form. It also allows the bearer to charm will as an ability at will, because of the charisma granted by the sheath. For every living being slain by the sword, their soul goes to the sheath to empower the blade as it is sheathed. This ability is passive.
    If /tg/ wants the rest after seeing this, I shall post it.

    >> Then he dithered about which weapon would be the best one. By "best," I mean, which would do the most damage. He had to be convinced that trying to get a fighter's damage output as a wizard was a bad idea.

    To be fair, it's not as important in l5r to segregate the roles like that. If you want to be good with a weapon or three as a fire shugenja, for example, you might as well do it because you'll have fuck high agility. You still won't match anyone who has decent bushi techniques, nor will you be awesome at taking a hit ... and you probably won't have any armour.

    /agree on the game dying and the wasted potential forming a minor clan had, though.

    Joyce should have been named Ghost Dog.

    As for the weeaboo thing, I'm a weeaboo and even I try to fit my characters into the setting.

    My general perception of campaigns I'm in just naturally gravitates towards light anime style because I've simply watched way too much. Granted, it errs on the grittier, more realistic kind rather than moe, but there's room for everything. But I really don't feel like forcing that sort of atmosphere on the other players, so I don't really describe anything about my character in a way that is explicitly anime, even if I draw inspiration from it as often as I do books or Western shows.

    Anyway, with a little co-operation from the other players, I came up with an evil plan to rid ourselves of the irritating duo of Kira and Rumiko once and for all.

    **Que. Maniacal cackling and thunderclaps.**

    For their last run, the players were contacted by an NPC, an old nemesis of theirs named Mr. K. Mr. K was a blood mage from the PCC who used to work for Aztecnology. The PCs had extracted him from Aztechnology in the past, and he thanked them by stabbing them all in the back.

    The party had run into him several times in the past, and he had always managed to escape after royally screwing them over.

    However, this time Mr. K seemed apologetic, remorseful even. He claimed that his estranged daughter had been kidnapped by an un-named third party who demanded that he recover some items for the Aztechnology compound in Seattle in one week, or she would be killed.

    Amazingly, his story appeared to check out.

    It was a set up, of course. Aztecnology security was on them the whole time, and closed the noose as soon as they entered the main compound. The party found themselves ambushed by something like 4 squads of cybered up commandos, mages, technomancer sprites and a full conversion cyborg all at the same time.

    ... We shall go from the sheath, to the handle. THE FUCKING HANDLE!

    The Handle of The Blade is Titanium and The Bone of The First Human. Attached to the handle is a Cord, that does not touch the bottom of the handle but wraps around the handle. This Cord is made of silk made out of Rhodium and Virgin Hair. The cord can expand up to 300x the length of the cord at will for free, it can go further at the discretion of the sword's bearer. The Cord is unbreakable as it was made out of sacrifice and pacts with Gods. The handle has only three abilities. One is to drain the intelligence of anyone who it is aimed at or who is hit on the head with it. The second is to store any spells known by those who are hit in this way. The third is to cast any spells stored this way and may additionally be cast without any components. Any number of spells may be sword this way. The Handle has a hypnotic pattern on it and if anyone stares at it directly they must make a will save not to be enthralled by the pattern. If they are enthralled by the pattern they will immediately kneel on the ground...
    Next is the god damned blade guard...

    My girlfriend and I played a pair of Kitsune in a Feng Shui game once. We played up the hedonistic aspect of Kitsune and the pair were always looking for the next entertaining experience. She was an illusionist, I was a katana/wakizashi wielder.

    It was actually great fun, the game was a spur of the moment thing and everyone genned up in about 10 minutes. I can't remember exactly what happened but many mooks were slain that day.

    They weren't kawaii though, they rented hookers, drank to excess and killed people for fun.

    Well, my group plays almost exclusively Dark Heresy, so there's a convenient limit on how weird a character can get before he gets shot in his stupid kawaii face.

    However, one of my players insists on all of his characters being a tad sexualized. This resulted in the following:
    -Psyker who insisted on pretending to be a normal person, except his idea of normal is trying to sleep with everything, captured by cult and turned into a Slaaneshi daemonhost
    -Cleric, who tried to sleep with everything, and spent as much time as possible touching the Tech Priest, who he thought was a guy, but was actually an underage girl
    -Tech Priest (current), female, attempting to make a sexy robot body
    Good times.

    That shooting emotions thing sounds like a badass item for a BBEG to have. He's so dedicated to his goal (whatever that is) that he crafted a gun that rips out and condenses his own emotions, using them as retarded powerful bullets that explode and fuck up heroes. The gun slowly turns him into an emotionless husk, and he has to ration its use because if he uses it too much he'll eventually run out of the ability to feel. And then he's fucked, because he's out of ammo.

    After every fight he survives with the PCs you could make him a little less animated, until at the big finale he's just an automaton... a shade of what he was when they first found him.

    today when I go to bed I will try to let my mind go and revert to uncritical mindset of a child, taking and imaginary power trip.

    Guys, we all USED to be just like that. It's just that some people do not evolve critical thinking facilities when they age. Wasn't it fun? Thinking of most ludicrous characters/weapons etc. without any subterfuge or attempt at modesty?

    At 14 I believe I had character that got turned into wolf (not were, just wolf) and managed to return to his human form via power of meditation.

    Later he obtained a sword alloyed with crossbow bolt tip, which has been shot into dragon's heart by his father. The dragon didn't die and so the steel projectile was lodged into dragon's heart for long years, until my character organised epic quest to kill the dragon and retrieve the relict.
    Sword had a power to cleave everything without touching it, but it had to skim object's surface with extreme precision, so only master swordsman could use its potential.

    Looking back- it wasn't THAT bad character.

    elegan/tg/entlemen... it gets sooo much worse, we now go to the last stop before the blade itself the /gun portion of the sword. The Gun Portion is named Divine God Slayer. The Gun is made out of enchanted Unforged Darksteel. The Gun has a range of 1000 meters with the scope. The Scope allows you to see through walls and objects not made of metal. The Scope's name is Seer Beyond Sight. The Magazine of the gun works like a bag of holding and may hold up to 20 tons of ammo. There are three types of ammo that are used by the sword are Fist of the Truth: which has +20 to hit for every enemy targeted by the gun in combat for the instance of combat. Fist of Light 30d6 for every enemy targeted by the gun in that instance of combat. Whirlwind rounds allow for the round to be empowered by the sword or a spell contained in the handle. The Gun is automatic and may shoot 1d6 bullets per round of combat. There is a 1% chance the gun will jam and it takes a half action to fix the jammed gun.

    Worst L5R concept I ever ran into was a friend of mine in high school who insisted on being a gaijin. With a gun.

    Unfortunately I was the GM, I didn't have a lot of players and wasn't old enough to know any better. I thought, hey, I want to do a campaign near the Shadowlands, we'll just have the Crab hold a twenty goblin winter and I'll explain to him that if he ever, ever lets anyone see him using a gun he'll be summarily executed.

    Long story short, it was only a couple of sessions before he was summarily executed.

    I once spent nearly two years and tens of thousands of GP on a sword I envisioned after spent four days under the effects of the holy hallucinogenic of my people.

    When I had completed it, it was a mighty and beauteous thing, +1 (+2 against the wicked) and would slow someone struck by it for 1d4 turns once a day.

    Basically what I mean to say is, "fuck this girl's sword."

    That's the thing. It isn't too hard to think of something over-the-top and awesome. Anyone can do it. Oddly enough, the most interesting characters are the most well-grounded and plausible of characters.
    However, playing a game where everyone is so over-powered that over-poweredness is the norm is pretty fun.

    Shit hits the fan in a big way. The players are soon pinned down by a withering hail of machine gun bullets while Blood Spirits move to flank them. Kira has the bright idea of trying to charge the nearest commando squad and gets knocked into negative Phystical almost immediately by rolling THREE critical glitches (honestly, I think these two somehow managed to annoy even THE DICE at this point.) breaking his back. Other players encourage the kitsune girl to go try and rescue her boyfriend. As soon as she moves, they take off in the other direction with Jack sacrificing most of his drones to create a distraction for them, and Cap'n crunch crashing the building's security systems, all of them.

    Rumiko gets wounded and is soon subdued by the commandos. Then Mr. K strolls out into the atrium. Shoots Kira in the head in front of Rumiko then jams his gun barrel under her chin and says. "Take this one to the magic research labs."

    Then he pistol whips the little kitsune bitch into unconsciousness.

    thanks for the welcome

    anyway guys before I even start looking at rules, I was trying to think of a weapon I'd like to make and here's what I come up with so far.

    A Katana that is pretty ordinary except for the fact that the blade is HOLY FUCK WHITISH BLUE DIVINE LIGHT

    the catch:

    It can't cut anything.

    what it does instead is pass through enemies and when it does, it steals some of said enemy's spiritual energy, or chi or whatever you want to call it and provides part of this energy to me so that I can channel spells through it.

    lvling up may provide small buffs or bonuses on the enemies I use it on and maybe finally learning a spell that uses the iron, copper and all that provided by my blood into making a metallic edge for it, so it would deal damage as I steal energy from enemies for a constant drain on health as long as the spell is maintained.

    opinions please, remember I'm new to this seen, so don'tjust range explain why it's inappropriate

    Ame-no-Ohabari: Blessed Lathe Longsabre with Tox Dispensors. Counts as both her Psy Focus and Her Charm.

    Said to be a gift from the Kami to her ealierst forefather this blade does not quite look human made, with a small rune at the base of the blade.

    Though, the character is basicly a not-samurai from not-space japan. She's also an Eldaraboo faggot. Fortunetly the other players have yet to realise that 'Kami' refers to Eldar, not Space Marines.

    By this point, Hot Topic girl is practically shaking with rage and storms out to have a cigarette. Her boyfriend starts yelling at me and calling me an asshole. We try to calm him down, to no avail. Then he literally FLIPS the table over in a rage sending character sheets, miniatures (some lovingly painted and converted) and books flying everywhere, clonking our hacker in the face.

    Rigger's not having any of this so he get's right up in boyfriend's face. Now the Rigger is a Marine and has a good foot of height on the guy (boyfriend is kind of a scrawny pasty dude). Boyfriend backs off immediately, and starts blabbering and almost crying. Trying to defend and rationalize everything so we're the bad guys. I just point at my door and say. "You're gone in five seconds or I call the cops."

    Loverboy looks right at me, his face turns beet red and he just bolts.

    After cleaning up the mess, we decide to call it a night. Rigger get's free pizza for a month in appreciation.

    We haven't seen them since and the group is much happier for it.

    "Gaijin with a gun and on the Wall" could be an interesting character if done right. Probably only right around when first contact was made, before things went to shit. It'd still end horribly for the gaijin in the end though.

    And Finally, the rest of the god damned awful Sue God Sword. The Blade (which the name is uttered here..>>14488523) Is only chosen by the first born of the tenth born of a first born from the old noble line of the Shibugo house. The blade is made out of infused starmetal adamantium alloy that harness the power of light itself and get's +1 for every hour of the day that it is exposed to light. It is infused with the eight true elements the symbols of the Shibugo house, which are;Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Paradox, Chaos, Life and Death. Each of the elements may fire an elemental burst of the type chosen at 8D6 D6 (thats x D6 where X is the number of Dice determined by the 3D6 Rolled...) at will three times per elemental type per day. In addition the Sword may once per day transport up to 3d6 targets to Elemental realm of (Fire Water Air Fire.) This may be done as a free action and is done without error. In Addition the Blade may Cast the other elemental abilities once per day. For the Element of Chaos has the effect of firing a swarm of 1d6 Hellballs at random once per day. The time is determined by the DM and the target is selected by the DM, the player may roll to control this on a DC10 Charisma based. The Power of Paradox, which reflects the attack of the target back upon the caster once per day, this may be activated by the DM if the Sword bearer fails her daily control check DC10 Charisma based. Life which may bring one dead ally back to life once per day. And Death, which may kill target enemy once per day if the fail a DC 30 Will save. More on the blade and what happened...

    Funnily enough, the gun is not that bad a concept compared to being an obvious outsider ... if they can avoid getting fingered with gunpowder / a gun by someone who knows what a gun is. Everyone will know what a gaijin is, by knowing what Rokugani people are not.

    Basically the theory was to roll the amount of D6 rolled to determine the amount of D6 Rolled. Or so it was explained. Anyways more of The Sue God Sword.

    The sword's blade itself is diamond hard and cannot be scratched. It is extremely sharp and it combat it is treated as a +5 Masterwork Bastard Sword. It also is incredibly light and is for weight purposes treated as a tiny weapon due to its enchantment. Due to the sheer presence of the weapon it is treated as a Large weapon for Damage.

    I did not post all the colorful fluff details for this weapon for /tg/'s collective sanity and seeing this go on suptg or 1d4 cha or some shit. Seriously, people do not need this replicated, unless you consider what was posted earlier. Which was the DM being able to shoot a fuck ton of hellballs from it at "LOL SO RANDUMB" once per day. The Sheath which granted immortality, while made out of some hardcore shit, was not indestructible. So, the idea was simple. Let her play a little bit get her character drugged, and thus destroy her when her CHA was really fucking low by destroying her and the sheath. Additionally the sword itself, was not indestructible. I don't know if this was a piss poor attempt at balance or what, but Basically, I could destroy her and her character in the first session. I just had to set up the encounter right..

Tossing simple bombs (read: bags of gunpowder) around when people's backs are turned, yelling "Look out, they know fire magic!" and shrugging expressively when asked why the enemy leader seems to have been killed by an enemy fire spell after the enemy magician was already dead.

    Okay, it wouldn't work for a completely serious game, but you could do worse than to inject a couple lulz into that setting.

Walks over to the bartender. The bartender bemused laughs and begins to poor. The man then sounds in a high pitched voice "DRINKS ARE ON ME TONIGHT!" And the bartender keeps feeding people drinks. Including Sue. Who thinking it is cute is failing some of her drinking tests. However the more she drinks the more isolated she becomes at the bar. After a long time of a portion of the party (which was pissed at me for including Sue in the first place.) Arrives at the bar and looks at Sue weird. I then ask Sue to roll a will check. She fails, and feels compelled to look at the bulliten board across the street. The board shows a reward of of 5,000,000 gold for slaying a coyote which has been spotted in the countryside. She then runs out madly into the country for "easy money." The mysterious stranger chuckles.

    One time, i had to take over a half dragon Half orc that was ostrasised (Her spelling, several times), raped, beaten by his (Human, non orc) mom, raped by his best friend, bisexual with a girlfriend who was killed by her mom (Again, her mom is the most evil person in her life). Oh, and being a monk? Yeah, she sucked DM cock to wear light armor (Called Ninja armor on her sheet) and using KATANAS AS MONK WEAPONS ( luckly, the DM said they didn't count as anything but nat weapons, so no absurd damage, and made katana's rare as fuck, and made her use non magical ones.) Thoughout the campaign, she had done nothing but try to force anime shit though, or argue things she didn't like (The dm told me she has been DM Rezed three times because of her stupid actions) .

    So, in one session, i turned him into a Dire Werebear Half Dragon Half orc who started a monastary of celibate were-creatures and other similarly afflicted with urges, using the martial arts to control their urges and do good in the world.

    Basicly, i made him a hairly klingon kamina. Who could turn into a huge bear and fought people off with a huge bench. Why a bench? "I use this bench...because i can't sit on a fucking sword"

    The kicker about this whole story is that i made the changes to her char sheet...including gluing a picture of Worf (with a moustash i added in MS Paint) over her hand drawn (Traced) pic of Edward. And erased her discription of his char and replaced it with "Covered from foot to head in a corase, thick, unwashed hair, often dripping with sweat from his constant life of training, the odor permeating any spell (You get the idea).

    But that wasn't enough

    Should I ever come across a character like this, I know EXACTLY how to deal with them.

    I'll bring an old PC of mine out of retirement. He's essentially immune to offensive magic (took yeeeears of playing this same character to gain that, and it restricts me from using so many other useful magic items), so it would end quite hilariously.

    Run up to her and start beating her with my fists. Have my mage buddies start casting ridiculously destructive spells in my general vicinity.

    You are correct sir.

    Sue runs into the plains nearby a town and sees a poorly constructed cardboard black coyote Ask Sue to make a roll save for Cha and tell her about the modifiers for charisma. She fails it. I roll a 6 on a d6. 6 Hellballs later the only thing remaining for plot purposes is the Gun and a fraction of the sword. The player of Sue is crying and screaming why did I do that. I tell her that I did not want Sues, and she needed to really think about a character and come up with something real and she kept making Sues. So I decided I would use her character to introduce the Big Bad. She stopped crying and stormed out. The other players all look at me wide eyed. The players at the bar hear a large boom, then see the mysterious stranger leave snickering saying "Today is my lucky day."

    Coyote then walks back to the bar, twirls the gunsword like an old west cowboy and finishes his beer. He then walks off.

    The next thing i did was fix his life. His mother remarried his father, her friend never raped her, that was a false memory implanted by his "loving" girlfriend. His mom killed her because she was actually a perverse lich who loved fucking with people.

    Oh, and since she was basicly the girlfriend, that part ticked her off to no end.

    I went to the next session, arriving to find a crying girl, two players looking at me like i was the devil (trying to get laid, i'm guessing), and the DM telling me that my changes were not well recieved. So i offer to take over the charater, if she feels playing a charater that actually has a personality beyond being hurt by people.

    Then i started to insult her. I won't repeat what i said, but i will say that she tried to slap me and left crying.

    One player left after that, so i introduced an ex girlfriend of mine to the group, and she loved DnD, and quickly became friends with everyone.

    Overall, i think i did a good thing. Fat girls need to be reminded they are fat, and not to wear fucking corsets. EVER. Especially if they don't even have fucking tits.

    I guess I'm lucky. I haven't been playing tabletop for very long, so the only bad characters I've come across weren't really Mary Sues, either just boring, cliched, or poorly thought-out.
    Still, some of the horror stories never cease to amaze me. I mean, I can kind of understand a 12 year old making a stupid, ridiculous Mary-Sue, but I mean once you hit a certain age you should really start thinking about things differently. And yet there are folks much older than me doing the same thing. Forever.

    all of you play with the wrong people

    fat chicks are easily tempted to play sues

    but you can get them to play funny characters just as easy, if you are not retarded enough to just let her roll up something you will kill for a lol later.
    Example, in my round we have indeed a fat chick. And she is not the smartest, either. At first she wanted to play a drow, a drow assassin of course, to be dark and mysterious.
    We all know where this is heading.
    Somewhere in between, she even mentioned half-drow.
    But. And this is important. But I, the GM, talked with her, and explained why that is a bad idea. Its not a stupid, but a bad.
    And guess what guys. SHE UNDERSTOOD.
    She then rolled up a gnome bard/favoured soul. No special reason of dark brooding parents or anything behind that. Bard, because she likes gnome bards, and favoured soul, because she wanted to multiclass with cleric, but wanted a bit more freedom, so favoured soul seemed ideal.
    Yes the character is not that great from a powerlevel point of view.
    But it fucking works!
    And she is happy with it! as is everyone else!
    Nobody had to be punched in the face. Nobody had to cry and nobody had to rage at the gaming table.
    Nobody had to be killed with HURRIMAGMMAGIC just because of stupidity.

    know why?
    Because Im not a shitty GM. Everyone who lets a sue plant their roots and then gets butthurt about it is a shitty GM.

    Haters gonna hate, deniers gonna deny, but the moment you used power word: whatever and let that halfdrow slip, you lost.

    It is always your fault as the GM, not the players. They are trying to live in fantasy. You have to level their fantasies so they can share fun.

    Never been a fan of the "immortality is a curse" trope. I never bought the idea that someone would be that upset at seeing loved ones die. I had friends in high school who I haven't talked to in years, and the same is true of college, and the last the city I lived in. I'll never see most of them again in my life. But you move on and make new friends, thats life. I don't see how that going on forever could be bad. I don't even really buy the true love excuse, people get over good and bad relationships. I don't see a real person suffering from a marriage that ended 100 years ago.

    Its different if your immortality includes aging, and not being able to recover from injuries, or maybe if it requires a significant change in lifestyle such as vampirism. Its one thing to live forever, its another to only do so by regularly killing people. Actually suffering eternally is a curse.

    So the mary sue vamp up there actually does have something to worry about.

    If he tries to run off of your campaign, pull him back to it. Don't try to catch up to him, you are in charge, and you dictate where and when the party goes.

    If he acts out or tries stupid stunts or metagames, you must correct the behavior immediately. Small frequent corrections will establish good behavior in the player. Do not be afraid to issue fiats, you are in control.

    I think immortality would suck, personally, just because after awhile I'd get so fucking bored and burnt out from centuries of experience and having to watch everyone you ever loved grow old and die.

    Agelessness would've awesome, but not being able to be die EVER? Yeah, no thanks.

    As long as suicide is an option, I'm game.

    But Jack Harkness style immortality? No thankyou.

    That fucker lived into the year 5 billion.

    just finished reading the comic Preacher. theres a vampire character named Cassidy. Imagine a heroin addict and alcoholic with strength of 50 men and he can't die except by sunlight, and whenever the junk is too much he rips someones throat out to recover faster.

    Lets just say partying hard + no consequences = you become a complete monster.

    Hell, no
    well, I would do the jump, Im immortal after all, and as ruler of the world they can build the ramp.
    But do something to forward human progress?
    How stupid do you think I am. Im the ruler of the world, if they make progress, they will want me to step down from there and be voted instead of just be ruler, that would lead to boring voting campaigns and shit.

    I let them do their usual shit, and get everything out of beeing the immortal ruler of the world.
    Seriously, even if I dont have a dick, waterski, skydiving, motorcross, playing Xbox, PS3 and Wii at once.
    Have my friends over, then crash a helicopter into the everest to snowboard my way down.
    Then I would start armwrestling, until Im world champ in armwrestling, Im immortal and ageless after all so I can take my time.
    Then I learn to skate and make more suicidal stunts than half of americas skating teenagers.
    then I would build myself some amusment parks, and of course at least two water parks, then fuse them all into a giant megapark where you can ride a rollercoaster into a swimming pool, from which you can get on a raft ride, which itself leads to a paintball range, while having a paintball minigun installed on the raft to shoot at the guys that try to win a price by overtaking the raft. I could go on what happens next, but not now

    people are underestimating the possibilities of beeing forceful world ruler, it seems to me

    Terrible characters and the immature GMs who don't know how to handle them.

    burned out? dude i could spend a 1000 years just visiting places to eat. never mind all the cool and fantastic stuff you could do, just mundane shit like learning languages and living in new places a decade at a time could be a very good life.

    >body completely made from an otherworldian substance, a black liquid that resembles tar. He is the pure essence of shadows
    You know, independent of the character it's attached to, this line is kind of neat. I think I'll be taking it and using it sometime in the future. Of course, with a modification or two.

    please tell me its the *pure essence of shadows* bit you are changing.
    This is drenched with greasy sue, with toppings of mary.
    its like: My character doesnt get wet in the rain.
    Because he is an elf rogue
    yeah, but why doesnt he get wet
    because elf ninja!
    wait, wasnt he a rogue-

    you realize that shadows arent made of anything. They are made because something is NOT there, light, since things are blocking the way light would travel, casting shadows where it cant reach directly.

    so, you are made of nothing. you dont exist.
    That guy is imaginary.
    and will never be your waifu

    I don't think it's inherently mary sue, but yes, that's the main part I'll be changing, mainly for personal preference reasons.

    Yes. I know this. The [whatever] I'm making out of that line IS going to be a huge something-shaped absence in reality.

    Thats why a being that travels thru shadows is kinda awesome if done well.

    Watch the (anime) movie Vampire Hunter D. one of the mercenaries the vampire hires has this ability, and hes fucking scary. Pops up out of shadows on the ground and can kill a person by stabbing their shadow.

    Light is good for killing lots of things. Just ask the Imperial Guard.

    >>Fat girls shouldn't wear corsets

    I'd argue. Theres a right way to wear a corset and a wrong way. If your fat and are attempting to wear a corset with a bunch of clothes you bought at Hot Topic, then that's not going to work. But an outfit involving a corset can look really nice on a bigger girl if it's properly designed.

    Yo I didn't read the whole thread yet so maybe you're gone, but:
    The major problem is that this is hugely system-dependent. Some systems don't use anything like spiritual energy. In some, it exists but in only a few points that must be rationed. If it would work okay in the system (though I can think of none where this would be the case) I'd let you take that, if you were okay with also limiting your own natural accrual of energy such that you were on par with a normal person (ie, not a magic user) I would allow it.

    I too had a fatchick dream up a sue with a hilarious weapon, though not as detailed and fantastical as the gunblade doomsword mentioned above. It was simply a shortsword of infinite perfect wishes. It's only stipulation was that it had to be held and unsheathed for it to work.

    I allowed it of course. I was going to slap her back with a better sue. I stated up Carmen Sandiego in 3.5.

    The sword disappeared in the first session, and no one is quite sure when. It's just the sword wasn't there when the sue grabbed for it. Of course, in Carmen Sandiego tradition, a clue was left behind that pointed them somewhere. In this case it was to Paris France. Unfortunately we were playing in Faerun. It was never seen again and Carmen was surely disappointed that they didn't jump planes to give chase.

    Screaming and tears were had as to be expected.
