I am seeking a new dnd group after 4-6 years with the same online one, it is no longer working.
The Steam Venter: Hates anything to make the game better, powergames constantly. Has to make everything, and I mean -everything- warhammer 40k.
The Druggie: On so many anti depressants and such, he flakes halfway through most the games.
The Furry: Guy/Girl (I still don't know which) who murrs and purrs and all that crap in every game. Loves talking about all the rpgs and stuff they have done but rarely puts any work in to gaming with us.
The Aussie: Lives in Australia, has near dialup speeds. Will continually vanish an hour or two before game time one week, then be around 24-36 hours at a time the next for gaming.
The ****: Plays female characters, constantly. Tries to sleep with everything, constantly. Is a 35 year old guy with a ZZ top beard. Enough said.
The Writer: Guy is fixated on one and only one type of character (Bard+Melee) And has to write 3-9 paragraphs for anything he does, hedges his skill rolls, will randomly vanish to play his console games for weeks without telling us why, derailing games.
The Kid: He's 18, lives in britan (As does Steam Venter and Writer.) his parents control him, take his router, computer away constantly, games go on for a few hours suddenly he vanishes.
The Girlfriend: My SO, used to game with us, became angry at the Kid and Steam Venter due to derailing games, messing things up or flaking out on us so she has flatly and totally quit gaming of any form until we can find better people to play with.
The Ninja: All his characters must be ninjas of some kind (also a brit) Or undead, or vampires or something combined out of that. Vanishes for months at a time, expects games to be on hold for when he comes back. Gets angry when they're not.
The Wanker: Obsessed with WOD, works swing shift. Hates swords. Hates dnd magic system, constantly wants WOD rules shoehorned in.
The Fighter: Argues with anyone and everyone in game, any time they do something that is story over rules or does something he dosent like. Constantly corrects -me- in how to run -my- game the right way. Recient addition/buddy of Steam Venter. Has been inciting arguments with Druggie/Aussie/Furry at least twice a game.
The Newbie: Brand new to dnd, knows all about other rpgs. Played with us a month now. Has diverted any and all conversations away from 3.X and into Warhammer (A theme lately.) Was a good gamer at first, then soon as a character he had died due to his actions, turned on me.
It's reached a point where my entire game day(s) have been taken away by the group, Druggie runs games on wensday suddenly. Steam venter has taken the days Friday to Sunday away for warhammer 40k games. They've done this without asking me. They have changed programs from GlitterComm to GameTable and so forth. There has been a near constant argument since The Furry was added in as of 3 months ago. (Steam venter and the Aussie are also furries so is Druggie) I don't allow that stuff in game, ever, but it's turning into a furry clustershag and they've all pretty much refused to game in anything I've been doing. Fighter and Newbie keep wanting 'to do something new' campaign wise but can't stick with anything and keep being unstable on game times (Ranging from 2pm to 1am.) Some of our campaigns have gone on for years, none of that matters now. After a month of arguing with them about things and getting 'we changed the days and what we play, don't like it, tough.' I have decided that if they want to do this, then I will find people who want to play
Familiar with D20 at the very least. (3.X)
Able to game and not min max/power game/explode.
Eastern Time Zone or at least -A- US time zone.
Looking to game via Hamachi/Glittercomm at least once a week, maybe twice if time tables, etc work out.
Tired of the shouting, drama, arguments and people just not doing anything more to advance plot and would prefer to derail/complain constantly.
