"I have a pleasant orgy with the guards"
So don't piss off the guards?
@ThePandaPool , The idea is that the DM doesn’t tell the players that they’ll get destroyed, they just sit back and describe the players’ “reward” for wedgie-ing that guard.
Although a DM shouldn’t really do that. Everyone’s there to have fun, not play out the DM’s 400 page magnum opus.
@Pangbot, the other side of that coin is when players try to power game or deliberately destroy the campaign put in front of them...as you said..theyre all there to have fun...that includes the dm..and being a djck player is just as bad as being a djck dm.
@Pangbot, what about a Magnum dong?
@Pangbot, you really should eventually play the main story line. DM's are people too.
@MMSieBreeze, A djck dm is definitely worse than a djck player. They both would ruin a single game, but a djck player could in theory be worked around or asked to leave and the campaign goes on. A djck dm can't be worked around and if they are asked to leave definitely will end the campaign and may end up ending the group.
I used to have a problem player who power played like crazy, actively cheated and constantly denied it, and threw a hissy fit whenever things didn't go his way. It took way more willpower than I'd care for not to do something like this.
I’ve never played dnd, been very interested in trying it, but can’t find a dm near me
@wicketman2007, I would suggest the discord server but honestly it’s slow there too so only other open option is roll20 but that can also be difficult.
@wicketman2007, if you use reddit there's a LFG sub for people to make groups
@wicketman2007, we use discord, it's easy enough and with 2 completely new people we've still managed to do a good job of staying on the same page. we looked at things like roll 20 but didnt feel like bothering. sure it makes it a bit easier but we have a discord bot for things like spells and everyone just agrees to not pull BS on their character sheets and stay honest.
@MeatMania, and discord is......?
@wicketman2007, like Skype but it works lol. Never used teamspeak but heard its similar. I'd just Google it to check it out.
@wicketman2007, If you just want a low-commitment DnD game, I'd really suggest looking into Adventurers League. It's often hosted at your local nerd/geek game store.
It doesn't have as epic of storytelling, but it's a lot more casual, and can be a lot of fun
