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.

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.

Bullying is weird.

I had an older brother who was basically the football jock pride of the household and I was the geeky waste of life who headed off weekly to a D&D game.

He'd constantly give me shit, specifically the fact that I was 16 and still a virgin. He literally stopped calling me by my name and just called me virgin.

Doesn't help that my dad really bought into the whole satanist stories surrounding D&D at the time. He tried to ban me from going to my weekly game but I'd just kinda blow him off and go anyways.

Got to the point where whenever I was going to leave the house he would grill me and argue with me.

>ANON WHERE ARE YOU GOING AT THIS HOUR?
>To go sacrifice a goat in the name of satan why the fuck do you care

>>45238811
Jesus dude, that must have been awful. I was introduced to the game by my brothers, and all six of us would play together back in the 90s.

Nah, but that's probably because I've always been big. Size is a natural deterrent against that kind of thing. People probably poked fun behind my back though.
>>
>>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.
>>
Being tall and sociable keeps bullying down.

People didn't really get it, but that's fine.
>>
>>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.

Never. There was implicit social rejection from a great variety of people, but can never recall actually being harassed by anyone.

>>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.

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.
>>
Yup, up until around 7th grade when I started in a new school, stood up to a bully and got left alone.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>45242155
That's impressive, and terrible. I think we could make a move out of this, instead, you feel disavowed and them to the actual occult to very vengeance on the school.

Your friends think you go too far, and take up the mantle of their characters.

But in the end it ends up like footloose, but instead of a dance party the town gets a fantasy makeover.

The sequels will be about the spread of magic in the midwestern united states.

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.

>>45238386
No, even though I lived near allot of Mormons, my high school life was pretty cool for the most part.
>>
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.

Not azn, but I took juijitsu in JR high+. I got similar response.

I'm not antisocial, you're just new to me and I don't know what to talk about.

Making gin and tonic at parties does net you friends though. Just, shitty ones, but at least people don't think you're antisocial.

>>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.

Bullies are weird.

Well clearly he knew you were a gay furry
>>
>>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.
>>
>>45238386
Once.
Girl called me a loser for playing d&d.

I punched her in the stomach. It was my dm's daughter. He got pissed.
I told him she shouldn't talk to adults like that.

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.

No need to be vindictive. That's a good way to /not/ grow as a person.

>>45241555
Do you have one of those faces whose neutral expression is just angry/disgruntled, or are you overly tall/large as to be threatening, or what, do you think?
>>
>>45243860
Thanks bro.

She'd been flirting with me too.

Chicks are weird.
>>
>>45243734
I would have done that, but that declaration was really hard for him since he was crying and struggled a lot to say it.

I'm all for beating bullies, but after the years I realized that he wasn't that bad of a person, and that destroying him during that moment of weakness was crossing the line.

Majority of the riffraffs disappeared after some blood were spilled in rather public fashion

I would say that children are same as ever. Parenting quality seems to have dipped significantly over the generations though.

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.
>>
>>45243596
I am by no means a pushover dad but I would have broken your ass for punching my daughter.

Really at this point, can you blame him?

There are people who actually believe the shit the other one was flinging. We have rolled around in shit pin acting retarded for so long we had actual retards join us in the pin.

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.

Never got bullied for anything since my brother and I are so close in age we attended schools together and even at age 8 he was over 6ft tall.

Now he's a 400lbs 7.2ft monster with size 20 feet and supposedly some medication he had to take growing up stunted his physical growth.

No-one ever bullied me. I was known as the 10 year old black belt. Then the 12 year old 2 time black belt.

No-one was stupid enough to give me a reason to kick them in the head. I got away with being a GW fag the whole time.

That and I have social skills, the real reason most who play table top get bullied.
>>
Never got bulled, probably because I never went to school.

>>45249074

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.

Not at all. My playgroup actually held a one off for a group for kids from Penn State's THON. Kids suffering from cancer are actually really imaginative.

One kid roleplayed as the bbeg's henchmen fairly well.

I've only ever been "bullied" for being the only black guy amongst the regulars at my FLGS. Luckily, the owner has kicked people out several times because of it.

>picking on the token black guy

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.
