This is hanging on the board at my FLGS.It's probably a joke, but there's this part of me that wants it to be true. I want this girl to show up in the store when I'm there and update the poster so I'll know it's her and that this is a real thing and not a joke the store staff are playing. Not because I want to meet this "grrrl gamer", but because it would mean that all the funny stories I read on /tg/ are probably true.So... /tg/ stories about other gamers, wacky gaming experiences, That Guys, whatever is funny, I guess.
Holy shit, could she try any harder?
>>30447299Gott im Himmel.I wouldn't allow her anywhere near my group if she paid me.
>>30447299>Ellipsis>Saturated with references to various popular media>Even a damn emoticonThe sheer force of tryhard makes me think that this is somehow both a trolling attempt and genuine.
>>30447299Where is this FLGS? Washington? Because I know a Kara that fits this god-awful-ness to a tee.
>>30447299>D&D, grammar, fanficWelp
/r/ing "The Captain America Gang" in the style of the Avengers title card
>>30447299If she's real, she's a legbeard for sure.
>>30447531>The sheer force of tryhard makes me think that this is somehow both a trolling attempt and genuine.You mean like "HA HA wasn't that such a funny joke? Of course I'm not such a tryhard, but isn't it hilarious? HA HA So can I please be in your group HA HA please like me HA HA HA..."
>>30447299I guess I can recycle one of my That Guy stories.>running 3.5>one player is running a chaotic neutral lolsorandumb elf who's obsessed with cats>always asking if there are any cats on scene, keeps looking for catfolk to "glomp" them.>the party winds up going to investigate a textile mill that had suffered a monster attack.>he splits off from the party like a genius. >perfect opportunity; I tell him he sees a cat one the other side of the room, that darts behind a piece of machinery after "meowing" at him.>trying to recreate that scene in Alien where a dude get's attacked by the monster while he's focused on the cat.>but the player has seen Alien, too. >metagames like a bastard, nopes the fuck out of there, completely dropping his prior characterization.That jerk.
>>30447299This was kind of painful to read.
I think reading that may have given me cancer. Thanks, op.
>>30447647Paranoia is an integral part of the Murder-Hobo breed. One time I was in a Dark Heresy campaign that had so brutalized the party that we ended up running from every adventure hook and plot point the GM dropped in front of us. The plot had to run us down like a wild animals to get us to engage the GM's carefully planned encounters and NPCs.
>>30447299Makes me think of the Chip Handon screencap.
>>30447299>hatin on Navi, the broest companion of the entire LoZ seriesLight that cunt on fire.
>>30447299>Star Wars, WoW, Star Fox, Harry Potter, Zelda, Dr. Who, Zelda again, DBZ, Narnia, DC, Marvel, and He-Man references. So what is it missing references to? By my count, she got everything but Homestuck, Adventure Time, and MLP.
>>30447299That was, Something, alright. I wouldn't go near that. Not unless I was getting paid somewhere around 50 dollars. Per session. if not more, rates can and will change in the future depending on the alignment of the stars, the characters, how horrible the game is and how much I think I can get out of you.
>>30447791These three are too current.
Jesus -fucking- Christ.
>>30447802Aren't you kind of interested to see what kind of hellspawn thinks that wall of text looks endearing?Finding out WHO could write such a thing?I think OP needs to find out.
>>30447791>>Star Wars, WoW, Star Fox, Harry Potter, Zelda, Dr. Who, Zelda again, DBZ, Narnia, DC, Marvel, and He-Man references.You got it all wrong. It doesn't have references to those works specifically, but rather to the things from those works that have permeated through into popular culture. She doesn't have to play Legend of Zelda to know to hate Navi or play Star Fox to know that she should do a barrel roll since the internet tells her it's trendy to have these opinions or to say these things.
So since she's throwing horribly explicit references everywhere I think I feel ashamed in not recognizing the symbol to the bottom right.
>>30447874Magic the Gathering
>>30447867Right, right. So what she's really missing is a Portal reference or three.
>>30447299I don't understand how things get this bad. I mean, I knew a couple people who would actually say lol out loud and would make reference to mudkips and similar shit, but never anything like this.I'd imagine for something like this to happen this girl must've been locked in a room with computer that could only access archives from /b/ in 2006. Fuck.
>>30447791The whole "lighting the beacons" conceit is likely a LotR reference, and there's a Super Smash Brothers one nearing the end.>>30447874It's the (relatively recently implemented) Planeswalker symbol from Magic: The Gathering.
>>30447889What's top left, I feel I should know it.>>30447857Yes, I would like to find out. But not enough to actually do anything.
>>30447889>>30447911Got it, thanks. Haven't even bothered with any TGGs since 6 years ago.
>>30447857This. OP, take one of the email addresses and find out for us what she is.
>>30447874Yeah, that confused me too. My first thought was that it was some sort of helmet from LOTR or something.
>>30447791>So what is it missing references to?TBBT?
>>30447923Imagine, she might be some 7/10 cutesy girl so shut in from the real world she doesn't know how to properly interact!All she needs is your help to adjust and you will have a loving companion for life!Seriously, I want to know if it even qualifies as a human being
>>30447866IIRC the Kara I know moved to Seattle for university, yep.
>>30447935I'll google the email address to see if anything fun comes up, but I'm not going to harass the bitch or anything.Back in a minute.
>>30447299>3-4 of the infotabs have already been takenPanic
>>30447995And she's not from Seattle.
>>30447996>>30447995>>30447569OP, is she from Washington (or even better, Seattle)? If so, I could totally give you guys a description of her hellspawn behaviors.
>>30448010Oh my god I didn't even notice.
>>30448029Who cares about where exactly.Tell us your stories, storyteller.
>>30447299I literally had chest pains while reading this.
>>30448053Well, sorry to disappoint, but I never got to actually play a game with her or anything. But she was just an insufferable wanna-be nerd in every way. She was a 'gamer grrl' who couldn't even beat one level of a sidescroller and didn't realize until an immense amount hours into Halo that you could jump... she was the kind of person to throw up the Vulcan salute and say "May the force be with you". Luckily I dumped her before I played any games with her.
>>30447995Got a phone number for her?
>>30448068I hope it wasn't laughter but rather suffering and a feeling of dread.This is beyond sad.
>tfw sweet D&D group of great people>tfw never have to check boards for more players>tfw you will never ever have to play a game with Kara
>>304481071.) No.2.) Why the hell would you want it?
>>30448029It's not Washington, so I doubt this is the Kara you know.But fuck it, the Kara you know sounds like an interesting story anyway.I can't find shit on her email or variations of it as a screen name. It's got to be a joke, or she made an email just for this flyer.
>>30447996Truly a based op
>>30448103God that spoiler makes it all so much worse.
>>30448138>>30448082Sorry to disappoint, folks. I meant "hellspawn behaviors" in reference to the question someone posed, I didn't mean to imply she actually displayed many. She was mostly just a really fucking annoying poser of a nerd. That's all.Truly I bring shame to the /tg/ name.>>30448169 I know... she was a lot better at first, but the more I got to know her, the more I realized she had absolutely no fucking clue about what she was a 'nerd for life!' about.
>>30448138Damn, I was hoping for more shit. Thanks anyway OP
>>30448120>tfw asked by this nice middle-aged guy if I wanted to join his PnP group>they play every other week at the LGS>remember the group consists of an 10 year old boy that talks really fucking loud and when someone older says something funny he repeats it over and over and OVER in an attempt to "be cool like them" (Normal 10 year old behaviour, but fuck it gets grating)>An MLP loving crook toothed lesbian that always wears a yellow pikachu shirt with blue overalls over it and smells like she hasn't showered in three years>actually I don't remember more players, I almost puked once when I walked past that thing
>>30448226Did the middle-aged guy at least seem normal or decent?
>>30448254Yeah, he looks like a nice guy.I'm just curious as to how they you know, survive near that thing, much less actually enjoy spending time around it.Once I heard it loudly complaining about still being a virgin.
>>30448254He's only there for the little boy.
>>30448283Or the fembrony.The big question is which one would be more disturbing.
>>30448300A threesome, I think.
>>30448300the fembrony, believe me.It is the single most disgusting thing I have ever seen.
>>30448226There's a guy I used to always see at the Burger King in the town I went to college in. He always wore a red T-shirt with holes in it, and these fat suspenders with all kinds of buttons with Counselor Troi from TNG on it. He was maybe in his 40s, long balding hair and BCG eyewear.I used to always wonder how those guys happen.Now, at my FLGS, there's this kid I always see. He wears a black T-shirt, a denim vest with MLP buttons all over it, and fingerless gloves.One day, many years from now, a confused college kid will see an older, fatter version of him in a fast food join all the time when he's catching a meal between classes. He'll wonder how that exactly happens.And the circle will be complete.
>>30448344Are...are you the fat guy in the mlp vest and fingeless gloves? That's what "And the circle will be complete" implies.
>>30448344I've been seeing more and more people sporting fedoras with pins stuck all over them. Most people in these parts of the Internet hate them, but all I can do is pity them. And wonder how the fuck they can consume any modern pop culture and be that self-unaware.
>>30448408Negative. I am not that guy. I am just bad at idioms, I guess.
>>30448344Sometimes I stop and wonder if I am one of these people and just don't know about it.I was in my LGS today with some of my friends, and I realized that in regards to appearance, half of them fit in perfectly with the rest of the grognards, and the other half are well on their way.Makes you think.
Shit like this is why I never go out looking for people to play with. I have an open-minded group of friends, and so I introduced them all to PnP gaming, and they liked it.Now I have about 15 different people I can game with, all of which are rad people, and that I taught how to actually enjoy RPGs instead of going about murderhoboing.
>>30447299I dunno what the issue is. Most nerdy girls I've run into are spazzes and pop culture whores. And everyone in my group rolls special snowflakes anyway so no worries if she's one of those types too.As long as she didn't disrupt the game with her rambling talk of harry potter and whatnot it wouldn't be an issue.
>>30448413It still baffles me that calling someone a 'fedora-wearer' is now pretty much a universally accepted insult on the internet and yet these people who likely spend all day erry day on the web just don't get it.
>>30448226There's a guy into PFS at my local FLGS who has a speech impediment, like straight up Doctah Wahwee type. And all he buys with his gold is invisibility potions. His character must be about seventh level by now but it's still wearing first level gear and everything. He just has a bag full of invisibility potions, and he drinks them all the time. Even if he's already invisible, he drinks another.
>>30448455>I am just bad at idioms, I guess.I'll say. Just remember in the future, "the circle was complete" or "things have come full circle" implies that you found yourself in the role of the person you were viewing in the firstplace, and someone else is in the role you were once in.
>>30448338The kind thing to do is call her out on her fucking awful lifestyle.
Jesus, it seems like forever ago when I noticed a few people started talking about this new My Little Pony remake thing or whatever. I didn't give it much thought, and I found it kind of funny that a few people thought it was actually pretty good. I thought it would blow over within a few weeks. And then people started to change their forum avatars and make increasingly elaborate fan arts and photoshopping ponies into pictures of the Warsaw Ghetto and wearing their shirts everywhere. And then the fedoras. Oh god, so many of them. I long for the days of old when the nerds the rest of us didn't want to associate with were just wearing flame t shirts and fingerless gloves.
>>30447299>Horde insignia>WoW fan
>>30448413I honestly think it's just a slippery-slope kind of deal.Much like weird-ass sexual fetishes, it starts at a relatively sane and normal-ish level. Maybe that trenchcoat DOESN'T look stupid, or maybe that 5 o'clock shadow makes you think you'd look rather dapper with a beard. Maybe you words like "dapper" to describe yourself. It descends further and further until you're wearing a fedora and MLP vest, in a burger king, or, for the porn analogy, fapping to cube-girlsI THINK that's what they're called (or something equally incomprehensible to people who aren't just as deep in the pit as you are)
>>30448525That sounds disturbingly symbolic.
>>30448464>tfw you live in the snobbiest part of your city>your wardrobe reflects that>sitting there in tight jeans and a polo shirt>don't fit in at all (visually)At least I don't have to worry about that. Instead they think I'm a snob. I buy everything second hand.>>30448531No it doesn't. It implies that something has gone full circle. Although the example wasn't any good as it didn't explain how the circle began, only the middle and final stage of the circle. "the circle was complete" does not necessarily have anything to do with the person telling the story.Just so you know.
>>30448413W-well, I sure am glad that I put my tastefully obscure pop culture reference pins on my jacket instead of on some kind of hat.>>30448581You're among the lucky few. My fashion sense puts me somewhere between what you're describing and a J-rock catastrophe.
>>30448464I don't hate hipsters for what they do, I hate them for how and why they do it.Someone who can confidently let their freak flag fly is OK by me. I hate people who are just into attention, I'm bored with people trying to shock me, and I detest victims who are looking for someone to emote against.
>>30448566I found the best way to describe this slippery slope for me was through music.My preferences in music just becomes less and less music and more and more noise as time passes. If it doesn't have something jarring or different from other songs in it at some point it sounds just like all the other shit I used to listen to and I grow tired of it. Then the cycle continues.
>>30447299>yourIf this person is real, kill them with a bat.
>>30448413>>30448625>pins>ruining perfectly good clothing by stabbing holes in them
>>30448627>confidentlyYou see, there is a difference between confidently being different, and NOT REALIZING you are fucking weird.
>>30448555She will just scream at you about triggers or friendship and then go rage about you on tumblr later. Some things are beyond saving.
>>30447791Homestar Runner, Regular Show.
Why did you block out the numbers?
>>30447874The thing in the top right looks like an anchor to me. It's meant to be the rebel symbol, yes?
>>30448679>Homestar RunnerIs that still a thing?
>>30448555I'm too scared anon.And I am already a bit hated by a few there for showing distaste towards their (lack of) grooming habits.And that is all been done indirectly, directly confronting them might get me hurt.
>>30447909holy shit I just realized:/b/ in 2006 is pop culture now. It's not even like "internet subculture," it's actually THE POPULAR CULTURE now. I feel weird now.
>>30448566I'm thinking it's an identity thing. A person doesn't quite fit in with everyone else. Maybe they're weird, maybe they're kind of slow, maybe they're that obnoxious kind of smarter. And so they move away from the mainstream, and gravitate towards some kind of subculture that embodies what they want to be. Some people try to become anime characters. Some people turn to meth because who gives a shit when you're on meth. And some people turn to the Fedora Crowd because they like to think of themselves as ostracized intellectuals.
>>30448525That's a psychologist's field day, right there.
>>30448697Because making fun of the flyer on the internet is one thing, but inviting the entire internet to harass someone is another.
>>30448715The irony of posting this is not lost on me.
>>30448698>>30448704It's not so much 'still a thing' as a target for the.. type of people displayed in OP's photograph.
>>30448658I'm sure that telling you that it's a leather jacket that's older than I am won't help.Though the thing is falling apart so really it's the least of its issues.>>30448722I can tell you personally that I have never felt more confident since I've tried to become an anime character.
>>30448658Not him but sometimes you have to use pins for nametags and such.
>>30448715If so, then I fear for popular culture in 8 years.
>>30448566I actually thought trenchcoats looked cool. Still do.But neither I, nor anybody I have ever met wearing one, has the figure to pull it off. And they most certainly do not look cool draped around what is quite possibly a human-spacehopper hybrid.
>>30448625>be fat>just wear Hawaiian shirts or baggy t-shirts, jeans a football caps>die inside every time I see a fat guy in a shirt 2 sizes too small, torn sweat pants and a fedoraCome on guys it's not that hard to not dress like a retard. Not saying the guy I am quoting is fat, just complaining about gamer fashion I guess.
>>30448771>hawaiian shirtsI own one of those for the sole purpose of wearing them to "bad clothing" parties or something themed.
>>30448722> because they like to think of themselves as ostracized intellectuals.I'll never understand the want for this.Niggas would be far happier if they just realized they're as stupid as most people and roll with it.It's far easier to work towards something than believe you don't have to.>>30448767I have one and it fits me quite well, as long as I braid my hair and let it drape down my chest.>>30448771Dressing like a retard is fun. Just wear shorts, sneakers, and a wife beater every day. Or sweatpants, sneakers, and some long-sleeved shirt for colder climes.Fuck looking nice, comfy is where it's at.
>>30448710What are they going to do? Kill you with intense waves of passive-aggressiveness? These people will never enter a direct confrontation that doesn't involve making snide, pseudo-intellectual remarks.
>>30448771>>just wear Hawaiian shirtsNot even a /fa/ggot and that upsets me.
>>30448767Made me think of this.
>>30448807I just don't socialize with them. The store is large enough for me to be outside the death zone. I have no reason to talk to them.
>>30448627I don't get the obsession that some people (looking at you, /v/) have with being in lockstep with 'normal people' and their fashion. It's 2014. Compared to the guy with gauges, nobody gives a shit if you have a d20 on your messenger bag or a Triforce or NERV logo on your shirt, as long as you're wearing it in a casual environment. But there's wearing shirts and articles of clothing from stuff you like and then there's only wearing shirts and articles of clothing about stuff you like.
>>30448771I'm actually a skinny fuck. Today's outfit consisted of crotch-hugging jeans, a v-neck & my aforementioned bigass jacket.It's my longass hair that mostly makes me feel like I'm sinking into grognard territory.
>>30448771Fellow Actual fa/tg/uy here. It's jeans, button downs, t-shirts, and the occasional khakis. It really isn't hard to dress and look presentable to the world.
>>30448834It's to save them from dying of embarassment/disgust when the MLP fedora guy sees it, recognizes it as a chance at common ground between two living beings (a rare occurance!) and tries to talk to you.Mainly, they hate people with similar interests and as thus DON'T want you to know that they like it.
>>30447299So, it is bad that this image amuses me?I would doubt there is even a real girl involved here, though it does seem like there was one involved in the bit of handwriting.I mean, as a real girl, all she would need to say is 'Girl gamer, looking for group' and get added faster than a healer on an MMO.
>>30448823You'll get over it I'm sure, Hawaiian shirts are comfy and look fine.
>>30448771Wear grown-up clothes, and people will at least respect you for being presentable, even if you're fat. Wearing clean clothes is a good start, but if you look like a circus tent you're still going to be thought of as a slob.Huge T-shirts don't hide fat anymore than a well trimmed beard hides a fat neck.
>>30448907Nigger that does not look like a girl's handwriting.
>>30448907Do I need to link you that image of the zelda themed job application?
>>30448731OP is a man of honor and class.I would be honored to share your fire.
>>30448767I have a friend that wears a trenchcoat, sort of As an actual cold weather coat, mainly. But it manages to work for him because he's a chill as fuck Mexican music major that's insanely nice to everyone, and exudes enough charisma to counteract the dual assumptions that he deals drugs and molests children.
>>30447299I bet she did this resume too.
>>30447647Are you kidding, the time you finally find a cat?Of course something bad is going to happenmy cat warrior was following a half giant with a shiny object until he tried to lead her into a dark alleyshe knows about stranger danger
How about we describe the most stylish and least stylish person at our LGS?For me, most would be a Filipino man who always wears quality, comfortable looking sweatpants, jandals, Calvin Klein T-shirts, and a leather wristband. He is very muscular, and tanned.The least stylish would be a very red-faced person, who has greasy glasses, untrimmed 5-O'clock shadow, wears spiked chokers and wristbands, and heavy leather trenchcoats in the middle of summer.
>>30448771>Hawaiian shirtsMah, compadre.The brighter the better too.
>>30448942Yeah, that was what I was talking about Females like this exist.
>>30448907Maybe it's just personal experience, but I have not seen much of that in P&P RPGs. I think that the truly sad and lonely among us would rather deal with a girl online where they can never actually have to see them face to face and can pretend they are super hot waifu worthy goddesses. I run into a good amount of women who cannot get into a real life RPG group because the "omg I am grrl gamer ;^)" shit is really fucking annoying in person, and most people wont put up with it unless the girl is having sex with them. Most of them hop from group to group until they either hook up with a GM, or run out of groups willing to put up with their shit and just start playing WH or something.
>>30448973I haven't reached a level of fat neckbeard to be able to handle that shirt. I am but a novice in my plaid shirts.
>>30448767Part of it is that trenchcoats, topcoats, and the like are weather-specific (and thus also region-specific) first and foremost. Fashion is a distant second to necessity for such articles of clothing.Secondly, they are meant to accompany certain clothing and look especially out of place with anything other than formalwear. Layered over casual wear they just look jarring.
>>30448771>a shirt 2 sizes too small, torn sweat pants and a fedora>jesus christ how horrifying
>>30448942I like how she manages to make the "meeting me in person" ending of her CV to actually be intimidating.
>>30448973That shirt is amazing, 10/10 would wear.
>>30448942I've seen worse.
>>30448942This amuses me as well.
>>30448942The most painful thing about this is that whoever made it is from Scotland too. And they weren't the brightest at school either.The grades she's put down are the exams you do at age 15/16 and they're pretty underwhelming.
>>30448991It might be that I'm insanely fucking lucky, but I've only ever met one Gamurr Girl that fit the stereotype. The other ones were the Chill Probably-A-Lesbian, the weird band geek that can get slightly silly but paints all my minis, and the girly one that got introduced to anime and Fallout and loves both while still remaining a regular human being.But that Gamer Gurrrl. Fuck her, I want to strangle her.
>>30448973Where can I buy this thing?
>tfw dating a gamer grrrrlllAt least she actually plays games, though. And dresses pretty smartly.
>>30448973It's a shirt, with other pictures of the same kind of shirt on it. This kind of shit amazes and fascinates me. Like the guys who put big letters on their Camaro that spell out CAMARO like we can't see the fucking car the stickers are on.
>>30448973>the shirts on the shirt don't have little shirts on them7/10, nice effort but not quite there
>>30449013They live, and they are among us. Let me tell you the tale of a man so gruesome that the mere sight of him could slay a Gorgon.This guys name was Harry, but he wanted everyone to call him Kevlar. He was fat, like really fat. Like a pear given human form. He had it all too, long greasy hair, neckbeard, stained t-shirts and torn sweat pants. Instead of a fedora he wore a beret. He told everyone he was the leader of a security company, tried to get store owners to give him free stuff in exchange for his protection, smelled like eggplant farts and wet shit. He would show up to the LGS I went too all the time, set up at a table and spread his MtG shit all over it. He then spent the day trying to rip off small children. Then one day he just stopped showing up, I heard years later that he got busted for trying to hook up with some 14 year old homeless girl, and the police found tons of cp on his computer but I don't know if it's true.
>>30449152Why do all of these people end up being child molesters?
>>30449072Yeah there are a ton of great women who play RPGs, the true horror stories are few and far between. The memories just stick with you more than the normal women you meet.
>>30449005>Part of it is that trenchcoats, topcoats, and the like are weather-specificI wore a trenchcoat to the LGS one evening. I saw some kids snickering and pointing, all making fun of it and shit.>I'm a middle aged man who was wearing a suit and tie that night because I was coming from something else, and it was fucking raining outside.These things reach some kind of pop culture saturation where people don't even realize that these articles of clothing have a purpose that preceded being an edgy faggot.
>>30448942>Did I mention I'm pretty modestJesus Christmas, how completely oblivious do you have to be to write that??I literally cannot read the rest of this. I think it might actually kill me.
>>30449236Be strong and just read the underlined parts.
>>30449236I think it might have been meant to.
>>30448973I own boxers like this. Boxers with pictures of boxers on them. My entire gym class thought they were the shit
>>30449176I heard a theory once (on /tg/) about why social misfits tend to be child molestors. While going through their teens, they never got any proper social interaction with the opposite gender. Their preference in girls simply hasn't been able to evolve and mature, and they are stuck with the attraction that they first had as a young teen, even though they have grown older in body.It made perfect sense to me
>>30448885>tight jeansStop. Seriously. Get jeans that fucking fit. Skinny jeans make guys look really top heavy and combined with a big jacket you will look like a clown.
>come home from work>first thing I read on /tg/I'm physically ill now. Maybe it's a performance art or something.
>>30449257>>30449262fuck it, if I'm going to do anything, I'm going to do it all-out. I'll read it later when I've calmed down a bit.
>>30449290Where can I get a pair?
Jeans and Tshirt, maybe a hoodie.Wow its like i look like every other college student, how do I do it!(beards are optional, if you can pull them off, but keepem clean. Don't have a fucking neckbeard.)
>>30448942I want to know if she got the job, and what she was applying for.
>>30449397Shit man it was a long time ago. Just search google I'm sure you'll find em
>>30449384Maybe it's a dare.
>>30449443Damn it anon.
>>30449442I think she was applying for digital artist job or something.
>>30449464Sorry man, got em in junior high. Long fuckin time ago
>>30447299Of course it's a D&D group. With this much pop culture poop it could never have been anything else.Her favorite tv show is probably Big Bang Theory.
>>30449473It couldn't have been design. Clean, concise, and informative this thing is not.
>>30449510They never said she got the job.
>>30449473Unsurprising. The only girl I've worked with, by which I mean been in the same office as them, in this position was pretty normal. Just those thick horn glasses.
>>30449528They also never said she was good at it.
>>30449117I suffered through two years of dating a girl after high school who thought she was a gamer girl. She would play katamari and sims. Would whine and bitch when we went anywhere and refused to take a shower unless she was going to work or out. I swear if i had not been so retardedly in love with her i would have left and never looked back. I was sorta glad when i learned she was cheating on me so i could break it off and never look back
>>30449293I am now trying to see myself if i had not gone straight for older women when i started dating. I guess i missed that younger social interaction and got cougar ass instead. Glad i landed on this side of the fence.
>>30449571I don't even think I'd want to date a girl who played the same games I did. A guy needs some time away with his friends. Every time I've been in a group that had a couple in it there was some kind of a problem because of it.
>>30449620I tried to run a game for this girl, her friend and three of my friends. It ended with one guy going to hospital for being sprayed in the eye with air freshener and a classmate who was not invited showing up and leaving for sex within a span of 5 minutes.I just went back to my old group and never looked back.
>>30447299>dat Horde symbolI bet she plays Blood Elves the pretentious whore
>>30448226>used to work security outside a call center at night>one of the guys there is an older gamer>tells me all these great tales of his old campaigns on his smoke breaks>I wish my group was that fun>one day he asks if I want to game with his group, or maybe he could join mine>as I breath in to answer, a tiny bug flies in my throat, so my yes comes out sounding really unsure or like I'm just saying yes to be polite>he gives a really disappointed "oh" and goes inside before I can recover and explain, always takes his smoke breaks on the other side of the building from then on and soon after I get a different jobI'm sorry Gordon, you were super bro tier and I really did want to game with you.
>>30448123Because I do not proscribe to the 'never stick your dick in crazy' rule if I live more than one state away
>>30449732Im not crying, I've just got something in both my eyes.
>>30449732this is literally the saddest epic failure I've ever seen. I hope Gordon's a fa/tg/uy and sees this. ;____;
>>30447995If you look at the tabs with her name and email address, her name either starts with a k or a y
>>30449732I kinda laughed a little, sorry. But for what it's worth, that's super sad.
I have no reaction images suitable for that poster. Absolutely fucking nothing.
>>30449732"Haha holy shit did you see that fucking bug? Sorry about that man, I'd love to play with your group."
>>30448658Man, if you ever saw a garment being sewn, you would cry so hard. So hard.
>>30449732You track Gordon the fuck down and join his game, goddammit.
The last part with the teen titans and "captain america gang" made my inner /co/mrade chuckle
>>30447299OP you must go and play the most ridiculous character you can think of. Not some OP as fuck character just something stupid that no one could take seriously and play it as serious as possible.
>>30452118Do this, make a dwarf druid with a bear companion. He is part of a druid cult known as the Children of Ditka. Ditka was once a powerful druid who fought against an eveil litch who had his Phylactery spread between 6 superb owls. Ditka and a force of 86 bears stormed the Lich's castle and defeated the lich. After the titanic battle so much bear essence was used that Ditka created and ascended to the elemental plane of Bears where he lives now as the king of the bears.You have to speak in a thick chicago accent to make it even better.
>>30452208that's the most retarded thing in the world.
>>30448942Autismal as fuck
>>30447299She seems like she would be extremely annoying to hang around.
>>30448413>>30448500You think that's bad, I was in a book shop the other day and some cunt came in wearing a top hat. Not even a silk top hat a gentleman might have worn a hundred years ago but some fucking squashed monstrosity that he must have got off a steampunk website that looked like a wankers idea of a top hat. Saw him the next day in the exact same get up, waistcoat, neon fucking gloves and all.
>>30448531No, it really doesn't mean that at all. You just failed pretty hard at trying to look clever on the internet son.
>>30452453I have Asberger's and it makes me die a little inside every time I try to read a part of it.
>>30447299Oh, hey! Someone took a picture of my ad!
>>30448464I honest to God had this conversation at a con the other day, while we were watching dodgy merchandise like Doctor Who soap and Dalek stress balls being dipped in liquid hydrogen and broken with a sledghehammer in an auction-type of deal whilst surrounded by grognards of all kinds cheering and shouting references.>Hey man>What>Do you think that after all this time we've spent in geek culture, we have begun to take weirdness for granted, and that in twenty years we'll have forgotten how it was before we casually threw around references to obscure shows and games and nothing will seem new to us and we'll be like these guys struggling to fit in with a crowd that's gradually younger than us but whom we've lost all connection to because we've been in this for so long?>...no.>Me neither.
>>30453739Aaah self denial, I know it well
>>30447299It was cute, and then it was try hard.

>>30447299That was actually painful to read.
>>30454533Some telemarketing call centers hire a security guard to prevent people from throwing bricks through the window. Literally everyone hates telemarketers.Hell, if that guy weren't there I'd throw one myself. There's at least four different endless robocalls and two actual telemarketers aimed at my house phone that I can't get to stop, and I know for a fact that one of them is local.
>>30448973Is that Ronnie's final form?
>>30448464>>30453739I was hanging out with my two bros the other day (returning from an overnight dnd session actually) when I noticed that bro 1 was wearing a zelda jacket, bro 2 had his anime top and I was wearing a webcomic shirt.It was a little moment of internal horror.
>>30447299That was like my Kryptonite. I can feel the life draining out of me, from sheer reflexive cringe.
>Visit the FLGS for a few minutes to grab some magic cards>Just came from a costume party>Dressed in a white on white suit with a panama hat>All the black trenchcoat fedoras watch in horror>One of them lets out a whimper and takes off his trilby>Get my goods and leave after a quick flirt with the counter girl>Return a week later in normal clothes>Everyone is in white on white suits with panama hats>Most of their clothes are stained yellow or grey from sweat and piss.
>>30447299> le landwhale> hairier than a Turkish wrestler> neckbeard hygiene> butch lesbian> SJWpick all
>>30447531Maybe she's just scared? You lot seem to be so accepting of people>Doesn't get nerd stuffFucking pleb>Makes nerd (geek) references?SUCH A TRYHARD. Please, tits, you have to have certain class to play with us, fat and smelly neckbeards.
>>30455683Project harder please.
>>30455707How the hell is this projecting? It was a little painful to read, especially before the end, but I'd accept a person wanting to play DnD and only then pile on judgement.
>>30455743Eh, you have a point anon. Its fairly easy to write stupid shit when you are nervous. I'd give her a chance and go from there.
>>30455743Sometimes you want someone who knows how to act before they come to the table, sometimes something makes you cringe so hard that even if there's things you like, there's clearly a divide in personality you just don't feel like taking a chance on. It makes me feel like a therapist when I have to take over where someone's parents failed them and point out behaviors they need to work on for the benefit of those around them, and I only do that at $250 an hour.
>>30455953So far the greatest dangers I see is bad writing (painful for GMs who might want to read character backstories) and a lack of obscure references indicating a larva level nerd.
>Want to play a game>Social pariah>Don't know anyone who plays>Don't know where the FLGS is>Don't want to risk meeting terrible people>Probably smellI'm never going to play PnP again...
Blistering. You can tell she never got a beating in high school.>at least five tags gone
>>30456033There's a little more to it than that. First, refreshing as it may be in comparison to pulling teeth from some people, she has a really bad case of can't shut the fuck up. I'm GM, that's my job and I've learned how to keep it in check. She's clearly going to have her own FOREST OF PISS that she'll autistically repeat because she doesn't know that variety is the spice of life and randumness doesn't count.Second, if she doesn't have the worst case of 'new girl, special snowlake character' and the accompanying passive aggressive buttmadness when you ask her to tone it down, she's going to have little to add that's original, or at least obscure enough to appear so. I'd take a chance if I ever accepted randoms, but would still only do so if it were a one shot and I had my best players sitting around her. Sessions are rare and valuable as it is, and dealing with someone else's growing pains or outright kicking them out is murders a campaign.

I have a couple copypasta that seems appropriate for this thread.>What does is say about me that the poster in OP's pic just inspired pity from me until the line "captain america gang?" Not even a big /co/ guy, but that made me rage a little.
>>30456863What the fuck was that picture? What.What.What the fuck?
>>30456863What the fucking fuck was this fucked up chuckle fuck of a clusterfuck.
>>30456954>>30456988>They've never seen this copypasta before

>>30457292me too. especially since they can bite them off as easily as a carrot
It's real, but it's not that she's a fake grrrl gamer. She's just trying too hard. You've never been shy, Anon?
>>30448120Same here, but sometimes I wish I could try with a group of people I dont know. People I have been gaming with for years are great, love em' to death. But we all know each others mannerisms, and even if you play a character out of norm, its still easy to find patterns. Normal group:>Knows what your going to do. Surprizes and plot twists are always a challenge>You go out of character more then in character because you end up talking to them unknowingly more often>Times whe you really want to be in character, other players are comfortable enough around you to poke fun at you and make jokes>The feel of getting to know a character in game is lost because its "Well, X always makes a character somewhat related to y".Again, I love my group and DM, but sometimes, I just want to start at the bottom.

>>30447328Holy shit, you're exactly who no one would want to play with. She just proved she has imagination and you being scared of females do what you do best. Be an awkward shit.
>>30448010Anyone who makes these knows you should rip a couple off. Shows "others" are interested.
>>30460098Not enough /d/ickgirls on Reddit front page and memebase and tumbler... yet.
>>30463337>She just proved she has imaginationI see not a lick of imagination in that abortion of language. If anything I see a deficient. She has the opportunity to come up with something interesting, or at least mature, and instead responds with a erratic, jarring checklist of out-of-context pop culture references, most of which are so badly misused I'm certain she's never so much as skimmed the works in question. It is the very definition of derivative humor, which is to say not humorous at all.
>>30463379That would imply that they have an understanding of social norms though.
>>30463337Are you the one that made this?
/tg/, I have a questionI have one friend who I call "max-kun"Neither him nor I are actually that into japanese culture, neither of us speak even a lick of japanese, and we only watch the barest amount of anime.Hell, he's chinese.So what's it called when I do this? I'm not seriously using an honourific, but at the same time I'm not using it like a high-school anime club would, and it's not just a one-time joke thing. Is it ironic? Post-ironic? Or are those just douchebag hipster terms and it's a normal thing?
>>30455532>Most of their clothes are stained yellow or grey from sweat and piss.By the Helix, wat
>>30467776None of the above. You're just a faggot.
>>30467776You may just be retarded.
>>30455532>>Dressed in a white on white suit with a panama hat>>All the black trenchcoat fedoras watch in horror>>One of them lets out a whimper and takes off his trilbyStay classy, Anon. There are few feelings more satisfying than making everyone in a room feel under-dressed.
>>30460893>Nicki ManageShe is the herald of the ass gods
>>30467776Its a nickname silly anon.
>>30467776I'd consider it an in-joke. Nothing to be worried about. If anyone calls you out on it and you don;t want to seem weeb, you could say that its a star wars reference, but that might be going too far the other way.
>>30468066>you could say that its a star wars reference

>>30456338>tfw go to a place described as one of the nerdiest universities in USAwell there's your problem: if the mainstream people say they're nerds, they're probably the cookie-cutter larval-level nerds like the girl in OP's post. what uni btw?

>>30468250/tg/ was always shit
>>30468254hey cool I applied thereWell at least I like MtG a bit, although it's far too rich for my blood. I really can't afford to keep up with deckbuilding and whatnot.
>>30468463Not the guy you're replying to but drafts are where it's at man.
>>30468250What are you going on about? /tg/ is good and keeps getting better now that the nazi mods are done with.
>>30468604Just ignore him. There's always people that constantly crow about how it was better 'back in the old days'.
>>30448636I feel that know. Slowly I've gone from punk, to indie, to folk, to electro-folk, to ambient, and down, and down.It's gotten to the point where sometimes my roommate just finds me curled up on top of the refrigerator, loudly complaining that its hum is derivative garbage.
>>30468777You think you are clever, unfortunately all this does is bump this thread that should have died this morning.
>>30468940It also Managed to roll trips, anon. So there's that.
>>30468970Jackpot trips at that, i have to hand it to you.
>>30468970>>30468995Hmm, that I have. But yeah, I only bumped a thread someone bumped 5 minutes before me, so nope, not me who bumped it to the top again.
>>30449290I have a shirt with a picture of a shirt on it. No idea where or when I got it, just appeared in my closet one day.
>>30468066>you could say that its a star wars reference, but that might be going too far the other way.I doubt there are that many people that would make the connection to Exar-kun that quickly, and even fewer that would care.
>>30467776>using spoken honourifics in any fashion outside the Japanese language and its defined protocols>ze horroorrrrrr
>>30470735Of the 3 last threads Ive followed Im pretty sure they all went dead on a 3spooky5me response.That shit is waaaay 4spooky6me.
>>30467776It really depends on how it all started and how it became a thing. Could you go into detail a bit, anon?
>>30467776I have a bro that I met a a non-profit. We had two fellows there named kevin, so for the sake of differentiation and communication that wouldn't really do. One was Asian, and you can't just call one guy asian-kevin and the white guy kevin. Its just not an OK thing to do. So my buddy kevin was going through a bondage pants phase (lol teenage years) so we wound up calling him "emo-kevin" which eventually got shortened to emo-k. Hes outgrown that phase and is now a grown ass man, but I still call him by that name. It is cemented in my mind as his primary identity. Nobody seems to care. Thus, there's a lot of wiggle room for bro-memetics in society. Nobody is gonna bust your balls over calling him kun unless you do it in an anime voice or something.
