Surprisingly no, despite having played it since 1995 and all the way through highschool and college.
Freeform scum have attempted to bully me for playing proper system RPGs, though. I say attempted because I'm not sure if there were words coming out of their mouths. When freeform scum speak, all I hear is farting noises and babies crying.
>>45238386 Once. We played in the school library, and one kid who thought he was thug said we looked gay. We just kind of sat there, staring at him, because we were secure in our sexuality and were not really offended by being called gay. He kept poking at us for a good ten minutes, then realized we were just kind of giving him the stink eye. He got real nervous, and left us alone. Then on the way out, he had for some reason been waiting to see us by the door, and called me a faggot again. I punched him square in the nose, and he literally cried. I apologized, and went home to eat pizza and watch Dragonball Z.
>>45238386 No, mainly because I'm a quiet shut-in. Hell, in 8th grade, a lot of people thought I was either mute or didn't speak any English because of how little I spoke and interacted with people at the time.
>>45238386 I was bullied for damn near everything through school.
Being the new kid, being quiet, not having friends, having the wrong friends, being gay (I'm straight), being too tall, being fat, being too white, being blonde, grades being too good, grades not being good enough, not playing sports, not getting high, not going to parties, listening to the wrong music, wearing the wrong brands, being a virgin, not standing up for myself, getting suspended because I stood up for myself and almost broke another kid's arm, and my all time favorite: Not bullying other kids.
If I ever got harassed for D&D or warhams, I didn't notice. I got into the hobby in high school and by then I was basically numb to other people's opinions of me.
My friends did tease me for freeform chatroom RP, but they were right to. I feel the shame to this day.
>>45239411 Yo, fellow weird introvert kid, what up my nigga? Shit, I always eat in the cafeteria at my work place because I simply don't want to nor do I interact with my fellow employees that much. I'd say I've gotten out of it a lot since school, avoiding then more because I have no similar interests with them and find some of them annoying but that was probably the same case back in school and I lacked the wisdom to realize that was the reason.
To answer the OP, not really. Like another said I was kinda big but at the same time I didn't really share what my hobbies were at school to begin with and being an only child with caring, good parents prevented any of that from my own home life.
Growing up in an inner city school environment for me was weird anyway, nobody really bullied once you hit 9th grade, everyone focused on their own social lives and whatever else they had going on in their lives, kind of too swept up in partying, getting girls, football and going out to get high or whatever to do that kind of thing.
>>45239616 I've been making more of an effort to interact socially lately, partly because I don't want people to see me as the quiet guy with few friends who might be a serial killer or something but mainly because having no friends was depressing.
>>45238386 No, I didn't get into it until my last year of college for one. I thought it had a pretty serious nerd stigma. My husband started playing 40k a few years before I got into GURPS, then from there it was shadowrun, then all downhill from there. I did play text muck/RPGs when I was young, briefly though, so, not really sure why I didn't see the obvious connection.
Actually the only thing I've been bullied for in my adult life was by other trans people in the support group I ran, and the umbrella group that hosted us.
Apparently I'm too threatening, along with a huge bundle of other reasons that make no sense or conflict.
Yep. Myself and a few friends used to play in gradeschool. And being the oblivious 11 year olds we were we'd talk about it at lunch and recess.
That is at least until a teacher approached us and got us to let him in on our conversations. Seemed harmless enough until 2 days later the principal calls and assembly talking about satanism and dungeons and dragons. Then afterwards quietly suspends me since the passing teacher had apparently pegged me as the "ringleader" of the fledgling cult.
Sadly. It worked. We never played together again after that.
No, I got harassed for being the only Asian kid in my school who got challenged to every fight. Because "every chink can fight" Started pulling out knives and other weapons in response which caused more problems of different nature.
I was the starting tackle on varsity from 9th grade on because I was 6'5'' and 300lbs.
No one gave me shit because I was a freak of nature. You can openly read dnd books in class when you break arms at practice. Also, any bullying I saw around me disappeared when I got to college, seeing as the jock/frat crap had a lot more to do with just hanging out and drinking then being assholes and bullying gets you cut from sports scholarships pretty fucking fast.
>>45240000 Sick quads aside, being labeled the quiet guy is the fucking worst. I'm usually loud as fuck around close friends, but around mid-tier friends and acquaintaces I'm generally quiet and reserved. It fucking sucks, maybe I should drink more or something
>>45238386 Yeah, but I was bullied for other reasons too. There was this particular guy who bullied me for -everything-, he followed me around and tried to get my attention each time he could, but I tried to keep my cool and talked it down with him calmly. After a while he started to watch movies that I recommended him, or read books I read, he even asked me to play D&D with him someday, but I turned him down because he kept bullying me until high school.
Interestingly enough, during the graduation ceremony he declared me that he had a crush on me and he loved being with me.
>>45243274 No, he thought (and still thinks) that I'm straight because I was a rugby player, while I've always been a massive faggot. Too bad for him that I have fucked a shit ton of guys since I left high school.
>>45243217 >not taking the opportunity to severely fuck with his head >you're a better person than i would be I would've declared that I was gay too, but tell him i knew and describe how repulsive I find him in front of everyone.
Majority of the riffraffs disappeared after some blood were spilled in rather public fashion
The final series of escalations died quickly after the Virginia Tech shootings. We had a white kid bring a gun the year before so people were really antsy near me. Spent my later parts of highschool in peace.
>>45244419 True, though I remeber if I Sassed my farmer dad he'd beat the shit out of me. I just find it hillarious the guy wouldn't tell her not to say that to his players, but apperently he doesn't like the hobby too much.
I was at a temp job not too long ago when a guy tried to give me a speech about being an adult and that playing games was for kids, and I straight up told him I was a grown ass man and I paid my bills and took care of business and he could suck my dick.
>>45243967 I've been told I have a 'strong personality' which is usually by people who try and fail to manipulate me.
I look. .. I dunno, sometimes my friends will send me pictures of postings on Craigslist or the local news paper of guys trying to get my attention. Every once in a while a guy will give me a note saying I'm beautiful, which is amazingly flattering, but they're not the kinds that are looking for a follow up.
I wouldn't say I'm typical hot girl in any way though. I'm not tall, or very muscly. I don't wear heels, ever either.
I'm told my neutral face is sad. Might be construed as bored or something with the black lipstick and eyeliner I usually wear though.
It's hard not to be bored when the group brings up dating for the 6th time in 2 months though.
I dunno, got a lot I could say, but not really sure what to start on.
I got bullied tons, but I only got into the hobby after that. In fact I've made most of my friends that I still have from tabletop stuff, aside from folk dancing.
And strangely enough, someone I knew from the latter was already in the first RPG group I ever joined. I'm amazed at how identical my interest are to those of that guy. He's still one of my best friends.
>>45249750 So you were into some little kid version of a martial art or was your school just super lenient on giving them away, because I won numerous sparring matches as a yellow and orange belt when I was a kid against "red" and "Black" belts from schools that gave belts away to boost confidence.
>Hanging out next to Yu-Gi-Oh kids at the bus stop. >Routinely harassed and bullied by white trash faggots who walked to school from trailer park.
>Bullied by cute black grill in middle school >Told by the same black grill "You're, like, hot now" in high school
>Social anxiety and crippling obsessive compulsive disorder unleash my spaghetti and I mumble "Thanks" while hurrying off to class.
>Only male in yearbook class >Receive "Girl Talk" award at the end of the year for "being such a good listener" >Girls routinely took pictures with me >Spaghetti intensifies
>In college >Cute girl, the only one I've ever really liked, really hits it off with me >We go out a lot and take a lot of the same classes for almost two years >I work up the courage to ask her out on a real date and she reveals she's a lesbian. She played roller derby and everything >Cosmic spaghetti
I'm the token minority (hispanic) in my college's game club (like 25-40 people). Thankfully I don't get shit my way but one time a dude showed up and starting cracking nigger jokes in the PF group with our black friend (he's since graduated). I don't know why he did. It seemed like he was something out of a bad /r9k/ greentext. Everyone else was just sort of doing that awkward nervous smile where they aren't sure if it's funny or not until black friend reacts and just packs up and leaves. I commend him, I'm pretty sure I would have thrown his ass out but I don't hear about this till the following week.
I don't get people sometimes. We would have banned the newcomer but thankfully he never showed up again.
>>45238544 Honestly that just kind of makes me feel bad for the kid you punched. He was probably looking for some kind of validation. I mean, I don't think you did the wrong thing necessarily, but hearing about how he got nervous and cried just makes me kind of wish that had had a happier ending.
