I actually got a good story.
I signed up for a oneshot with a DM, I knew the guy from another game we were in, I didn't really like him but he invited me personally, so I was pretty much forced to attend
>DM says it's his first time DMing.
>already a redflag
>second redflag, 24 hours before the game he show up to the common room with (I guess) 90 bucks worth of miniatures, including a yuge "Archaeon the everchosen"
>everything still in the box
>he doesn't have glue or tools
>literally asks me to go fetch him some
note that the guy still owes me 20$
At this point I'd honestly pull the plug on this, but part of me wants to see the trainwreck till the end.
>fetch everything, 6 hours before the game he's still making models.
>asks me for help with CHARACTER SHEETS
>"Im not gonna make it bro, still got alot of stuff to finish, can you just make 2-3 character sheets?"
>do the best I can, make a silly ass sheet in the pile.
>come back, DM is reading through a pathfinder bestiary AND a Dungeon manual to make his monsters
>the oneshot is set in a Not!Warhammer universe where a Not!GodEmperor asks us to collect 4 elemental artefacts to stop the Not!Chaos.
>DM also precise this is meant to be a serious campaign, no fun allowed, serious stuff and all that
>of the 4 players, one bail 20 minutes in, he has an appointement,
>after 30 painful minutes, we locate the first artefact
>it's guarded by monsters WAY above our level
>blast all my wizard spells at them
>DM starts a "Forest fire" from my fireballs
>as if the game needed more realism
>spam detect magic to discover where precisely is the damn thing
>everyone is bored to death.
>More chaos forces approaching,
>unearth the artefact
>Another guy call it quit, and I say to the DM "We're not enough to continue, eh, too bad."
holy shit that was painful
