    I don't know why but being an gratingly obnoxiously good character in an otherwise normal DnD group just seems so fun.

    I've kind of enjoyed what's happened with our D&D campaign, where my cleric who is the one actually evil character has now become the voice of morality because if he does evil things he gets punished by the goddess he's being forced to serve, while everyone else is some stripe of neutral and have been getting more evil over time as we pursue vengeance/bloodlust.

    Hmmmmm
    So my nerd colleague is reading QC and tabs out before showing me her code
    “Oh hah I used to read that for years but I got tired of it”
    “Yeah I’ve been reading it since 2009 and I can’t stop. He makes too many new characters all the time”
    “Yeah like every time he thinks of a new cute girl to put in with a different hairstyle and glasses...it’s a bit much. I do sometimes stop in and read a few hundred pages and see how the characters are doing.”
    “Did you see that Faye is now dating the robot girl she works with?”
    “Hah not surprised, that was telegraphed years ago.”
    “Now don’t get me wrong but I think it’s excessive that every character has to end up in some sort of ‘special’ relationship...”
    “I mean, it takes place in Northampton and Smith is there, so it reads pretty true for the location...” AND ALSO did you seriously just lowkey imply that you think QC is too gay/there aren’t enough ‘normal’ relationships because people have various demographics and sexual orientations are you fucking kidding me; do you know who you’re talking to?

    Then we looked at her code and it was interesting but bro, what.

    "How can everyone be gay?"

    Bro. Bro. Have you ever actually looked at social clustering?

    At one point I'm pretty sure I knew every early 20s lesbian in my home city

    Social clustering gets pretty extreme sometimes!

    being the good character in curse of strahd is fun, I get to stop the party from just murdering anyone who's inconvenient


    the only downside has been the 2nd ed grognard who pitches a fit any time my character does something not good or lawful (for example, after we found the party's cleric strung up, murdered, her guts hanging out, a guard telling us to clear the streets and hitting my character with the blunt end of his spear when I tried to cut the cleric down, I turned and hit him with a shocking grasp leaving the guard spasming on the floor uselessly - the grognard insisting that you can't have outbursts like that regardless of how stressed you are or you stop being lawful good)

    I find that a limiting and stupid way to play, I had planned to sneak in and give a healing potion to the guard to make amends, since my character would feel bad about her outburst despite the guard's wholly unnecessary violence - but the bard took the opportunity to murder the town's mayor in a display of powerful magic that sent the villagers and guard screaming and into hiding

    basically everything's coming unraveled and my lawful good character is having a hard time in a land where almost nobody is actually good or fair and it's fantastic

    Have you played (video game that could spoil the twist below)
    Crosscode? Kind of an inverted premise, as the setting is explicitly a far future AR/physical MMO on another planet

    In our Ravnica campaign our paladin PC had to bow out due to family priorities, leaving myself (human guildless scout/bounty hunter) and a gruul centaur barbarian lady.

    We ran Krenko's Way two weeks back and it turns out he was our moral compass

    @Evil Multifarious I see it’s been covered, but when you are southern gentility you still do the whole debutante ball thing. It’s very upper class—not even upper middle but straight up old money stuff. It feels totally 1800s and fascinating; in the future I plan on asking my colleague more about this culture she grew up in because it’s just so foreign and interesting to me. I know it’s preceded by cotillion, which is where you go to learn manners. I think boys can also do cotillion because my good friend’s husband went (in Kansas City; his mom is old money southern so they let him in despite him being Jewish. He did not want to go but had to in order to somehow pave the way for his brother to go and they wanted to send his brother because his brother had really bad manners (idk; his family had and had really weird dynamics so who knows what was happening there)).

    Balance between order and chaos makes sense when you look at someone having a breakdown over lining up a sofa with the pattern on the wallpaper.

    Balance between good and evil, I'mma say no.

    The problem is I can't play that way. I'm more of a Chaotic Neutral type in RPGs.

    Yeah, it’s fine to be the voice of reason but frankly it is so much more fun to be the “I shoot the hostage.” “You what...?” “I (as is my wont) have the highest dex/reflexes/initiative in the group and I act before anyone can react.” “....are you sure you aren’t going to talk it out...sigh...roll it then...”
