ITT: Those times we feel like NPCs in someone else's game.

>I am a humble clerk at the local convenience shoppe.
>On a fairly typical day, in walks a massive man. 6'7" at least, and not skinny by any definition.
>He finds what he wants and comes to the counter. I ring it all up as normal, there's a little small talk, and I give him his change.
>He rustles through the small pile of change, picking out the pennies and dropping them one by one into the penny cup.
>As he does this, he says in a completely serious tone, "Pennies are like niggers. They're worthless."
>I laugh a little, but mostly look dumbstruck.
>Turns to walk out, but halfway to the door looks over his shoulder at me, grinning.
>"Oh yeah, I'm old school."
>He walks out.

Not the best story ever, but I feel like I met someone's That Guy that day.
>>
I tried to think of a story, OP, I really did, but I'm the only person in my group of friends and work associates that isn't just passive when it comes to the world and others in it.
>>
I was working in the video game section at Toys 'R' Us a couple years ago, and I was minding the register when what appeared to be a PC from an awful game of Naruto walked in.

He looked about seventeen, pimply-faced and bright eyed, with the whole vest and headband getup on. He then proceeds to start trying to wander around the section. I keep an eye on him, because I already know I shouldn't trust this kid as far as I can throw him.

So finally he walks up to me at the register and just tries to start some small talk. And I'm like "who the fuck is this kid and what does he want."

And then I saw his hand sloooooowly sneaking towards the boxes of candy bars underneath the counter, and I give him a hard look, before telling him to get the fuck out of my store.

Don't fuck with NPCs with full ranks in perception, especially if you are a rogue wearing bright fucking orange.

>>20193525

It's not really a matter of being passive. It's a matter of someone else really standing out for some reason or another, or doing something so crazy or obnoxious it feels like a PC plan.

>>20193635
I wish I could actually express how god awful that smell was.
I couldn't even be in the electronics department for 10 minutes without getting queasy while the smell lingered. I felt like I was about to throw up and couldn't even see straight.
We have some of those alcohol hand wipes for cleaning things, I used the last remaining couple to wipe down everything the guy touched, then poured the remaining alcohol over the counter to make it stop reeking.

I work at a movie theater. I generally work at night, and I generally sell tickets when I work. Due to the fact that I have a limited amount of things to say (Hi, how may I help you? X dollars. Enjoy your show!) I do start to feel like an unimportant shop NPC at times. But the other day I got to feel like a quest giver.

It's the first day of the new Spiderman movie and the shows have been selling out non-stop for the non-3D shows. There's one last show of the night that's been sold out for hours now, and we're twenty minutes from closing when a group of people come in.

A teenage girl wearing an immaculate Black Cat costume, a skinny male neckbeard and a guy wearing a Spiderman shirt come into the theater for that show. And as much as I want to sell them the tickets, I can't. I may have a soft spot for movie cosplayers when they show up, or fans who are just plain dedicated to movies, but it would be impossible for me to sell them the tickets that they want. And of the course they're all upset, because who wouldn't be.

So I called the same theater in our chain about ten minutes away and asked them about their movie times. In twenty minutes they've got a non-3D show and they haven't sold a single damn ticket. And that's when I hung up the phone and gave them their quest.

Go forth down yonder highway for ten minutes, continue further on your quest. We cannot help you here, but go forth and find what you seek, brave heroes.

Once i was standing in line at the public library, like maybe five years ago, and this guy comes in. He's a black guy, about forty years old, short and thin but very ripped, and he's wearing a leather vest, one of those frilled American Indian style vests, with no other shirt. He's in jeans and cowboy boots, has a really ratty cowboy hat with alligator teeth around the band, and is wearing this giant silver crucifix around his neck on a heavy chain. He had a face like Danny Trejo. He walked past me and he had these glassy eyes that he just kept scanning the room with while he was glaring at everyone, and I thought, "Holy crap . . . I just saw a vampire hunter".

When I was a kid there was this dude in my block who would always roll up in an old beast of a car (pictured) with his hands low on the steering wheel, so it looked like he wasn't holding anything from the outside. Or maybe he was controlling it with his mind, who knows.

Anyhow, the important part is that he looked exactly like how Jesus is commonly depicted. I sometimes feel sorry that I never got to interact with him. Who knows what wisdom he may have imparted on me.

Okay, here goes. I swear every bit of this is fucking true.
Working in bar as dish washer, i come upstairs from the dish room all the time to hang with one of the cooks. I get upstairs, hanging with this guy and were just shooting the shit for like ten minutes when bang, ssome drunk throws a chair. Shit flew through the window of the kitchen. We both duck and I look to him like what the fuck?. He stands up, all calm and walks out of the kitchen. I did not know who this guy was behind that ratty apron.
>>
>>20200855
So the cook walks out into the bar and I follow, scared out of my mind as people all over the room are fucking fighting. The cook, his name is Damien of all fucking things, takes a look around. He shouts for every one to "cut the fucking shit" and leans back on one leg kinda. I'm thinking this guy is about to get his ass beat. Then Yuki jumped up. Yuki is about fifty and mean as hell. Just and old mean drunk who lives at the bar.
>>
>>20200885
>>20200855
Yuki jumps up and says to the whole room "you heard the man. Cut the crap!" I am still shitting my fucking pants by the kitchen. Well some guy takes a swing at Yuki's face. Yuki ducks that shit and returns with this crazy shout and a punch that floors the guy right out. Then Damien stepped into the mess. This cook is all rapid punches and high kicks! It's like an old school chop sockey flick out of no where!

The fight breaks out in earnest, people swinging fists and chairs every where. I dart to the bar and get cornered by the waitresses station (that place between the two brass bars) and cower in fucking terror as someone goes to knock me the fuck out. Just before he hit me, I hear this scream, and Damien fucking boots this guys head hard enough to drop him. I look up at Damien and can't believe what he just did for me. We both hear a shout and look to my left, his right and theres some asshat, barstool on the air. Right before he can connect Yuki fucking drops this dude with a punch to the jaw. I couldn't fucking believe it. This went on for until the cops showed. Just me, in a bad spot, being protected by the old, drunken fighter Yuki, and the young monk Damien. That my friends is what happens when you're the sideline character in someone elses campaign!

Mostly only true in developed countries.

In third world shitholes, sometimes your entire family lives on the street. Like, literally. Your day is a litany of begging and crossing roads while trying to dodge traffic (holding your youngest son in your arms all the while) and your night is a collation of the meager change you've scraped up, and also beating your children (with your youngest son, conveniently located in your arms).

An decent gypsy knows that you don't throw candy you should throw doughnuts. They must have been level one gypsies.

Some homeless will also come from broken homes or be forced out by circumstances beyond their control. I've actually people who were forced out of their home by their mom because they got an abusive stepfather who told her he didn't want to live with more than two kids. In that case, the child was given up for adoption, but sometimes teenagers in particular are just forced out with only the clothes on their back. This isn't even counting drug addict parents, and horrible lolcow / "typical /v/ rage thread material" parents. The differences in people's lifestyles even within the same culture can be shocking.

Was at a food court once eating some delicious gyros when I saw a well-built black guy looking to be in his late 20s, wearing combat boots and pants, and a tactical vest of some sort over a T-shirt. Didn't see a gun.

I spent the first six months post-Katrina and around 3 months post-DH down in New Orleans, working gigs doing construction as, well, I had an alright job but contracting makes some dosh, I like the city, and pussy grows on trees.

Down in Little Saigon helping a crew do some work down in that area, getting logistics up and running.

Driving around about 80 grand worth of equipment in a rented box truck, and of course get jumped at the One Working Gas Station I Could Find.

Late night, three thugs, guns on me.

My crew-supplied gun (which I never fucking touched or really looked at thinking I'll never need it or the license for it) tucked safely away in the underseat space.

I hear the sound of revving small CC engines.

Five guys dressed like VC (full black body suits) zip by.

Oh fuck me.

About three minutes later I've got a 12 gauge in my back against the side of the car.

Sounds of conflict on the other side of the truck, gunfire, then the shotty is off my back.

I get knocked the fuck out.

I wake up after a few seconds, head is ringing, and an old Asian dude is smiling crookedly with an ice pack on my head.

"Okeh?"

"Yeah"

"Bad neighborhood"

All of my shit is where it should be, and they go off into the night.

>>20208682

It's alright.

The crews who were working on the cleanup after Katrina were the strangest mixture of batshit crazy and utterly brilliant individuals. You had guys coming in from Mexico illegally to work for no other reason that they felt bad for the people down there.

They lived in squalor, but when they came with us into some of those gut jobs they would always look the saddest of all of us. I think it was because, where we did a lot of our work was in the type of poor neighborhoods that are endemic to the world of abject poverty.

One of the guys who worked on the crew was Jorge. Jacked up Mexican, great attitude, and spoke broken English. I speak enough Spanish to get by (buddy used to have a place down in DF, little farm we would go to, so I picked it up), and so we would have conversations about horses, farming, family. He had two kids back at home, and hated being away, but when an illegal can sack away 25x a normal working man's salary in his own country to come in and do the gig? Shit, it was to be expected that he went.

The guys in the crew would talk about coming over, and Jorge had snuck in with some of his boys from Monterey, hitched on with a crew out of Galveston after going through Laredo to Corpus Christie, and came to New Orleans.

Racist pricks who don't work with Mexicans consider them lazy. The problem is that you don't understand how hard those fuckers work when they are working. I saw guys who would be considered the 98 pound weakling lifting loads that most of the guys I worked with would wince at. While I was hired to handle logistics that meant you did logistics, computers, and when not busy helped the crews because otherwise you were a complete faggot.

But then the Mexicans liked this pasty neckbeard white boy and decided to take him out on the town...
>>
>>20208846

I have never gotten more fucked up in my life. We went out on the town, hitting what was open in the area around our housing. We did it up right, and Jorge was the fucking life of the party.

We came into a bar that was serving po boys. During that time seafood was a dodgy business, and the prices were relatively high due to the risk, but the guys wanted to try the shit out. Tiny little Asian foodtruck, and the whole crew was yammering.

Then Jorge starts talking. Quick chatting, surprising all of the guys working the truck. Apparently he knew Japanese... I noted it, and figured I'd deal with it later.

We ate (some of the best fries I have had, some free beers from the truck's 'special stores' after Jorge said we'd come over and check out some damage to their house which was further inland) and started heading home.

It was about a mile and a half walk, and we got caught up in a group of people fighting it out over some chick. One of the crew's workers starts mouthing off, calls Jorge a faggot for getting into it...

And then he just fucking exploded.
>>
>>20208927

Jorge fought like a beast. We're talking full on wolverine shit. Beatings that will echo in eternity were delivered on that guy, and the group broke up as we dragged him off the twitching body of the guy.

We reported to our crew leader, who went to check on it. Jorge and I sat around and he explained what had happened.

Jorge had been a relatively notable but not horribly famous Mexican wrestler. He spent five years in Japan during his early 20s wrestling for one of the big outfits, and knew a lot of Japanese wrestlers who used Mexico as their sort of training grounds.

He left Japan under some rough circumstances, had anger issues, and almost killed some guy in the ring. He worked for various groups, got locked up for 6 years, and lost his passport.

But the dude came to New Orleans to help out because he felt he needed to help his fellow men.

He bounced before the cops got there. The guy was beat all to shit, but with the wonderful response time of NOLA police at the best of times to the area (took 3 hours when my van got jacked... Got it back by paying off two guys to go 'find it' and running up on some crackheads) he was free and clear.

I always wonder what the fuck happened to him. But seriously, he was the most PC of individuals I have ever met.
>>
>>20207869
Funny, apparently you don't think that when you see a gun. I realise most amateur gun lobbyists harbour Rambo fantasies. But consider that for every story of a robbery being stopped by a concealed-carry gunslinger, there're forty-odd stories of someone getting shot trying to pull a piece out while trying to "stand up to the mean ol' gangstas" or a child catching crossfire to the brain because the aforementioned Lone Ranger had a shaky aim. Somehow, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, I'm disinclined to believe that handing guns out like candy corn on Halloween will even things out for the "good people."

Here's one from a buddy.

Working in a sex shop somewhere in the South... Wrapping up shop at 1:45, two people run in full wizard/witch regalia (it is July).

They proceed to go around to the sex toy section and browse, he tells them there's 15 minutes left before he's locking up.

They pick out two thick dildos, from the Colt line (giant black hardcore gay assrammers... Classy).

Lay down a lot of money.

He finishes closing up shop at 2:30 to find the Wizard outside being blown by a Witch while a guy in chain mail is working the dildoes into each of them.

If someone has a knife out and trained on you: a gun will likely scare them, if they are not already close enough to stab you. If they ARE, it may easily scare them into stabbing you IMMEDIATELY. If they hit something vital, you're stuck shooting them while you bleed out, and then congratulations, two corpses. If, on the other hand, you had complied with their demands, both of you would still be alive.

If they are unarmed and you pull your gun: you will likely scare them off, but only because you have serious overkill by comparison.

If you pull a gun and they already have their gun out: they will shoot you and you will be dead.

If you pull a gun and they don't have their own weapon drawn: see "if they are unarmed and you pull your gun".

Adding another gun to a situation does not make the situation any safer. It just means someone is more likely to die. Soldiers don't carry guns to deter attackers. They carry them to kill people. A gun's function is not to protect. It is to kill.

Never did get the story behind it, apparently evidence in the trial.

It amounts to the will to fire. If you don't have it, you might as well just not carry. Most people don't, and criminals, when threatened, are gonna shoot ya.

Yeah.

I always laugh at these people who think they're Han Solo or something. If you need your gun, and it isn't in your hand, it is as if you didn't have it. In fact, it's worse, because someone can take it, and then they have it out and ready.

If you know how to properly use a gun in real life, and you want to own one, it means you believe you need to kill something. Hunters, I can understand. Police, I can understand. Soldiers, I can understand. But armed civilians, carrying guns in urban or suburban environments, with the intent of using them in the event that they become the victim of a crime? That makes no goddamn sense to me.

Because we consider make work important.

The Mexicans I worked with who pulled that crossing would bust ass and do three days of lazy fuck faggot work in 1 day... While still taking nice long breaks, shooting the shit, maybe slipping off to smoke a joint or take a slug of MD 20/20 or liquor out of a stash spot.

Also never had any assistant who could get shit done so quick. Had to rig a shitload of cabling, and had one 50 year old Mexican come up and ask what I was doing.

We got a 36 BH job done in 5, and most of it was just making the fucking cables. Spent the rest of the time getting dollar dances at some seedy club he liked, and laughing when he caught the clap from barebacking one of the girls.

Threw him the tab, the fuck, and 6 hours of pay at my rate, helped him pick out a couple of PCs to take home to the kids for school work.

So are you telling me that if the U.S. govmint took all the guns, we'll assume by magic because otherwise lol civil war 2, that the U.S. violent crime rate would drop dramatically?

We're assuming all other factors remain the same I guess, poverty, unemployment, health care, education system, etc.

Do you really believe that?

>Guns are banned in Britain
Uh... No they're not.

>Have one of the highest violent crime rates ever
Uh... No we don't...

You're full of crap.

It's true that the 'UK' (not britain) has the highest violent crime rates in Europe. If you take out Scotland and Northern Island, this number falls incredibly. If the Scots get independance, our crime rate will fall nicely. Same if we dropped northern island.

We also have a higher rate of crimes reported. Basically there's a larger number of unreported violent crimes in other European countries. This is a slightly speculative point, but I feel its valid.

Finally, guns are not banned. You can buy Shotguns and Pistols freely, as a member of a shooting club, and so long as you pass vigorous tests and medical checks. You can even go hunting with a gun. Just with the right permits etc...

Get some facts straight next time you type a message.

I think the number of homicides would lessen by an incredible amount.
Also, gangs would be less problematic.

Why is that unrealistic?


(Not saying this is any way possible, since as you mentioned, it'd cripple a lot of gun stores, make people shoot up the government because "HURRWEAPONS!", and would never get passed).

It's homicides per 100.000 people, dipshit.

TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY MILLION FIREARMS in the US. Enough to arm every single adult, with spares left over. And that's what the civilians have.

You cannot unfuck the virgin, you cannot re-bottle the genie. Firearms are THOUSAND YEAR OLD technology. Any shlub with half a machine shop and some knowhow can manufacture one. Afghani goatherds maintain fully automatic weapons using charcoal fires and iron age tools.

Learn to live with guns, or learn to die by them.

I used to go down by the riverboat landing to sit, smoke, and people watch when I had a little R&R... Working two weeks on and 4 days off wore me the fuck out. Go grab a muffaletta, some cold ones, the cops didn't seem to give a fuck.

So one of the Gold Men, who always claimed he was the 'original Gold Man', sitting down by the docks. Obvious junkie, fucked up beyond all recognition, hand him part of the sandwich (I mean, it can feed 8 fucking people and I'm more interested in watching it all).

The guy is eating the sandwich in one hand while waiting for tourists. He goes into his pose (football up, sandwich in the other hand) and two black dudes start laughing and the little one slaps away the sandwich.

Gold Man loses his shit, begins hitting the guy. Apparently they keep coins in various places, and this guy has a sock filled with pennies, nickels, and dimes wailing on the guy.

Everybody just starts to go the fuck away, cops are called, he attempts to claim nothing happened.

Of course, the other dude is covered in gold paint...

Saw a midget blowing that guy who walks around covered in talcum powder and schizotalking on his bike down about a block off the Quarter.

And then there were the forays into SF over NO.

To the first part: I know, you dumbass, that's why I said it's not feasible in the States.

To the second part come the fuck on. People can't figure out to plug in their computers, and they're all educated. You need technical knowledge to be able make guns, even if it's laughably little compared to what people like us know.

To the third part: they don't make those weapons, you dunce, they purchase them. With money made from drug trafficking.

I thought that was obvious.

To the last part: most of the world is doing just fine without civilians who have access to guns. Don't see many of them dying because of

Walking to work. Random guy comes up to me while waiting for a red light to change. I notice he is maybe 50, thin, wearing a long, frayed coat and having long white hair. Balding too. He then comes up to me and asks "do you like poetry?"
I'm all "hurrr wat"
Then he produces a nylon sleeve full of papers, and starts to take one out. "here, have one of my songs"
"N... no thanks..."

Still see the guy once in a while. Odd.

There was also the crazy woman, who ran down the streets screaming bloody murder. Apparently we are all smug dopplegangers who took over everyone, but she can see us for who we are, and one day we'll pay for our crimes. Picture a dungeons and dragons hag screaming about us paying the price for our sins, that's what it looked like.

Okay, that's creepy. Like she was following you for a full year, watching stealthily over your shoulder, probably protecting you from all sorts of dangers you never even noticed.

Some visual characteristics on Garry would be great. Maybe relevant movieshot?

Yes, we do. Also, how is Italian pizza so vastly different from what is served elsewhere?

The right to bear arms was never intended to protect you from criminals. It's to protect you from the government.

No, the mime tried to get away from the violently swearing man on a segway.

Invite Gary and John to the party and have adventures.

What kinda PC are you to turn down an adventure?

BTW Any more stories?
>>
>>20220734
You must do it. Then bring back tales of Gary convincing Warlords that he's an arms dealer.

Yeah, there's Austria, Germany and Denmark.

Europe was one thing, Africa is a hell hole. And like I said, I just wanted to see some nice buildings and art.

Fuck. That. D gave him my Facebook and I don't have the gall to remove him.


Maybe another day I'll do the rest of the countries. But for now I want to play with my dog.

I was never an adventurer, I was just there.

Another day, anon, I'll give you something to look forward to.

You were obviously a party member.

Gary was your Swashbuckler
John was your Cleric
You and D were Rangers

>>20220900
Well, I'll always be on the lookout for more tales.

Hey euro trip anon, did Gary ever say where he came from in Australia because I swear I know that fucker if he is from western Australia.

Also my small contribution
>live in a rather small town in aforementioned country's of poisonous death
>working at a bottle shop
>fucking graveyard shift closing at midnight finishing at 1am
>10 minutes before closing in walks the blackest person I have ever seen
>not black as in african or aboriginal black but like he was carved from obsidian black wearing a pair of shorts and nothing else.
>walks up all 6'10-6'11 of him making me feel small at 6'3
>asks me in a voice that sounds like it comes from the depths of oblivion for a carton ( 8 x 4 packs ) of blackcurrant vodka cruisers ( weakest alcohol imaginable )
>pays, gives me a tip ( first and only person ever ) and walks off into the night with a carton on his shoulder, drinking these horrible premix drinks singing something to himself.

I think he was a bard but he looked like a fucking barbarian, no one else seemed to notice is guy but I don't know whether that was from the fact that even the biggest idiots weren't about to do anything to attract the attention of the black giant walking along enjoying himself in case he decided to wreck their shit or he had something else

My town is pretty boring for the most part but we get some weird shit happening occasionally, that one is the only one where I really was an Npc in the proceedings
>>
>>20220904
You're looking at it wrong. Gary was some sort of slayer and the rest of the guys were just his troupe. Anon was definitely a chronicler NPC.

Well, at least in the case of murica' the actual intent of arming civilians was not day-to-day protection but to deter the government from tyranny. That said, if you want to CC that's cool, if not, also cool. I also don't CC wherever I go either.

Carrying can deter crime and have the positive effect of making sure the bad guys end up dead. However it should not be the first thing you go to. If a dude wants to rob me and I'm carrying, I'm not going to pull some western Clint Eastwood shit and outrun his trigger finger, I'll just cancel my cards and give him my fucking wallet. That said If I think a mugger or robber is going to kill/rape/maim/burn myself of someone I'm with I'll try to draw when I see an opening, because life limb or eyesight is at stake. Also, most cops are required to off-duty carry, so that has to mean it's at least somewhat effective.

TL;DR your first defense should be avoidance followed by diffusing followed by violence. CC should be allowed for those who prove themselves competent

The problem isn't the weapons existing so much as how people believe they should use them combined with the extreme ease of access. The problem isn't that guns exist but that there's insufficient discrimination to prevent total whack jobs from getting them. There's lots (and I do mean lots) of stories of perfectly innocent people getting shot. Someone thought they were a criminal or an idiot with insufficient training accidentally shot them or someone pulled the rifle out of their basement and shot someone in the face because of a misunderstanding. There was a story down in the states about a registered sex offender moving into an area (statutory rape aka consensual sex with a 16 year old) and some father knocked on his door, let him open it and then blew his face off because he was convinced he was a pedophile rapist.

The problem isn't guns, it's that when such a massive number of guns are given out with such a small amount of control it becomes inevitable that idiots get a hold of them. That will always be the case and, to be frank, with the level of military equipment we've developed guns really aren't that much of a deterrent from an armed military force anymore.

But, this is off-topic. So polite sage.
