How do I git gud at DMing? I did one four session campaign just as a test and I kinda sucked but learned a lot still. I wanna make sure next time I do it that I don’t suck at it.

Killing off a PC's friends

No.63517967 ViewReplyOriginalReport
This is not something I'm planning on doing, but I've had a very allergic reaction to Wick's "Play Dirty" in my youth after being exposed to one too many GMs who relished in being assholes in and out of table, and he was a big proponent of using a player's affiliates as train fuel en route to Drama.

I often see posts that say killing off people close to the PC (or doing something similar; there was an old pasta where the epilogue included a player character's wife cheating on him and ultimately dumping him while he was gone) is a surefire way to make it so that players never affiliate with anyone. I agree.

As I already said, I dislike the idea of taking a shit into the player's escapism and discouraging them from forming bonds, and with taking their pet kitten and impaling it on a trap to play up a cheap tragedy, but how, if ever, would you do that in a tasteful way, that wouldn't feel forced by a man high on GRRM?

Pic unrelated, but I know someone will add it to his folder.

Playing a Different Sexual Orientation

No.63495482 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hello, /tg/. I'm gay, and as a result the characters I play are usually gay, because it's what I know. But lately, I've decided to make my most recent character in a game with my group straight. Branch out and play people different from you, you know. My question is: how do I roleplay a convincing "straight" character? What do I need to do to makse my character seem like a straight guy, and not just a gay guy that's attracted to women?

If you don't like the topic of this thread, instead you can try to stat Cheburashka.

Which is a more accurate depiction of the nobility?
Which do you prefer?

>Nobles are a warrior class up and above the common serfs. With lavish feasting followed by intense training, jousting, and an expectation to fight most noblemen are fearsome warriors sloughing through the mud in plate armor that they have trained in since squires as youths. They tend to be stronger, swifter, and better warriors.

>Nobles as posh, petty, either skinny or hugely fat, more concerned with finances and political standing rather than fighting, and you would never see them at the front. They are likely to defer command to their lieutenants and lords, and more likely to backstab someone than to swing their sword at them. They fight far less often than the conscripted soldiers of the land

->Be me, brand new to D&D.
->Find a group willing to accept new members at a local game shop.
-> Group is all death and grim dark. Not my cup of tea, but this is my 1st time playing and I don't want to ruin their fun.
-> Play for a few weeks getting familiar with how this all works.
-> The real problem starts happening when one by one, the rest of the party members start converting to this one autist's cult of Baal. Some of them were forced to with intimidation rolls, which is bullshit. Eventually I'm the only one left.
-> Group starts calling themselves The Baal Cabal, and are constantly putting pressure on me to convert.
-> I try to explain to them that it would go against my character's behavior. My character is a Fiend Warlock who regrets making the pact, and he wouldn't start devoting himself to another evil entity on top of the one he's currently subservient to.
-> The DM offers a solution to my character's predicament. He says if I worship Baal, the cult can perform a dark ritual in which some innocent person can take my curse instead without my Patron knowing.
-> In hindsight, I should've just gone along with it and be a team player. Instead I stubbornly decline.
-> Finally the Baal autist, a Fighter a few levels above me, delivers an ultimatum. Either join the cult or die. I didn't appreciate being bullied to join his stupid grimdark fan club, so I say no.
->Fight breaks out between our characters, I don't have a prayer in winning this fight. Fight is interrupted by several giants. In the confusion, I do the only thing I can think of and run away. They survive but I'm long gone.
-> Session ends that night. Group is mad at me for leaving. I'm mad they betrayed me.
-> I go home knowing I can't salvage this, and my character is probably going to die.
->Next week arrives. Long story short, the DM has my character coincidentally run into the group who are being attacked by dragons.
->I'm hoping me arriving to help them can patch this up. Autist refuses.
