Its op of last thread again and im back from the game. It didnt go bad but i certainly saw a few more red flags in everybody. Except john hes confirmed bro.
>John Ton Anec
Other than i guess using wrestling moves when they aren't necessary he RPed well enough and was a cool guy to everybody else. Took his smoking outside and gave the kid of the group a ride home.

>Luna Oaken
She seems to be trying to shoehorn herself into party leader roll but most of her orders are ignored. She also has a problem of trying to start or get into conversations with NPCs that don't concern her. However shes not bad at RP but could use work and so far is taking care of the wolf good enough and isn't doing anything that screams "i need to be the center of attention much".
>Serena Boreesh
Earlier i said healslut as a joke turns out i was pretty on the ball. RP is so far one of the best of the group he can switch from OOC to IC shy awkward healer girl easily and i could genuinely take her attitude towards others as how the religion taught her to her best understanding. At the same time however hes going the whole nine yards with "I'm sorry if my heals aren't good enough" and "I blush at the praise" as a few quotes. Seems to forget about healing during downtime but keeps everybody alive in combat at least.
>Tyranius Occisionis
Ok so edgy was right when i explained him. The first tavern he literally went to the corner table and looked over all the other patrons and ignored every npc who tried to talk to him. He isn't to bad and so far hasn't tried to fudge rolls or do illegal things but we did have a slight argument over how he ate or drank without removing his mask that as he explains is just a flat white mask with two eye holes in it. Honestly expected worst but other than that and one edgy kill he wasn't to bad.

If anybody wants the story of whats happened ingame just ask but for now what other red flags do you look for in players.

>>44929201
Story time, op. I'd say the second player will be the most work and might not stay with the group. Fourth is just inexperienced.
>>
>>44929474
Depending on the GM and the game, it can drag out or derail certain scenes. It's not a huge issue, but it's the deal where good roleplaying in one situation can be out of place in another.
>>
>>44929201
Luna is doing better than she otherwise could be, anything problems look to be more from lack of experience than anything.

As for number four, keep an eye on him. It could be lack of roleplay experience or it could be That Guy waiting for his moment to strike. The edge could be lack of experience, but if he does end up spotlight hogging or cheating later, don't let that be an excuse.

>>44929201
Serena Boreesh is magical realm.

Rest seem fine.

OP: It's really important that you know just how shit of a DM you are. But more than that, you also need to know that at least half of your players are literal cancer and should never be allowed to touch dice again.

For everyone's sake, I hope there is no session 2.

My DM dealt with an edgelord in a pretty creative way you might try. When the player declared that he was going to the shadowy corner of the tavern, DM said it was occupied. Player tied going to every corner of the bar and DM declared that each one was occupied. Someone (don't remember who) asked jokingly (and a little drunkly at that point in the night) if it was the same person in all the corners.

So it was that our group met the minor god of shadowy corners in bars, who occupies every shadowy corner of every bar in the entire universe.

Liking John and Serena. He better teach her about the virtues if hustle, loyalty and respect. Tyranius however...

IMO it didn't go as bad as it could and John was able to be funny while not being derailing or retarded. Left out some minor shit from the greentext but its nothing too important.
Tyranius brought outside food which you weren't supposed to and we took the break right after they questioned the bandit guy but not before he got stabbed. Everytime they got back to whoever gave them a job Luna would pipe up saying her group completed the mission or but into minor conversations but again nothing much. Also keeps the wolf in her backpack and lets it peek its head out to help warn her of dangers other than feeding it and it barking at the crow it never came up ingame.

Owlbear was a random encounter to see how the party gels together, but the rest seemed breadcrumbs towards plot. First session with a new group, too early to judge much.

Plus he's greentexting with focus on round by round reporting, that looses some RP detail.
>>
>>44936317
Anon, it wasn't just an owlbear, it was an undead owlbear.
I think it was more than just random.
>>
>>44936384
Still is an encounter that doesn't directly lead to plot, so I stand by my estimate.
>>
>>44936258
I'm sorry, when your game consists of going to a tavern owner and being pointed towards a board full of job ads, you're not only not a good DM, you are so far away from comprehending the job of a DM you probably won't ever find your way back.

I dont think it's magical realm but there's a small possibility

>>44936553
It's like the difference between calling a character "little girl" and "loli".

Healslut has slut right in the name. It refers to the memecap of healers being sluts, "healing the tank's cock" and so on.

Old established nonsexual designation is healbot. But OP uses healslut.

However, it is actually unclear whether the cleric is actually healslut or if OP is just memeing by himself.

I'm honestly dismayed by the number of people saying how great John Ton is. He sounds like an annoying player who has to make everything a ebin reddit meme. The whole bagman shit is taking it too far. It's not always bad to play a larger than life crazy character that has his moments, but that's taking it way too far. Why would he put a bag on his head? For the upboats? It's just randumb humor.
>>
>>44936814
You may have a point
>>
>>44936814
The reason is because /tg/ is made up of fucking retarded players who think successful gaming consists of making the most "epic greentext stories".

They play games simply to aspire to have stories of their character shared forever because of how over the top and ridiculous they are.
>>
Frankly, the whole "eating with the mask on thing could work if played for comedy. You start by accepting food or drink and simply state you return the empty plate or cup. It'd be a fun footnote, but ultimately inconsequential, making the other characters possibly discussing it during banter. Had that happen with a character once who had his lower jaw replaced by an air filtration system.
>>
>>44937300
I think it was a situation where the player was so annoying there was no way to make the mask thing work that way, it would just be giving him what he wants.

If you want to be an idiot, you're free to be an idiot, just don't be surprised when people call you out on it, referential humor and "random" are lazy and stupid, only to be enjoyed by lazy and stupid people. This is "meet the Spartans" level humor.
Watch how easy it is too make a "funny" character.

Let's make a druid who is always smoking dank weed, and whenever an NPC offers the party a rewards he requests to be paid in pot. Am I funny now?

So what? Eventually they will grow out of their randumb fun and do something else.

You're just being a cunt saying that they're idiots. Just like calling kids childish and stupid: yes, sure, they are. But you're a dickhead for insulting them.
