when someone tries to be smart and edgy with their character and they completely ignore the blatant direction you and your character are taking the thread

maybe your idea of 'blatant' isn't good enough

My condolences anon. I'm having the same problem in my game.

anon i feel this so much. no amount of talking about it has helped either. the player is just stupidly dense.

This is happening to me right now and what's worse the player originally approached me about the exact plot they are now trying their hardest to not have happen. If you approach me and say "X should tell Y this important thing" don't turn around after I've already written a top level and say "X probably won't tell Y in this thread" especially when something I want to do hinges on X telling Y and I have told you this repeatedly that it's the reason I wanted to do this log in the first place.

people who consistently drop threads a few tags in drive me crazy. there's one in my game who drops them with everybody except whoever she's using for ac that month. so it sure just made me smile to see a character icly call hers out.

i wish more people would do this. with flakes and with the "my character's going to stand around and hope your character notices" type taggers.

i'm not disagreeing with this peeve, but how do you icly call a player out... sounds like blurring the ic/ooc line to me

I had a castmate once who was constantly dropping things I tagged into and never tagging into mine one day start talking about all the tea parties our characters had. Apparently the player figured that was acceptable handwaving. And my character looked at them and said, "Are you hallucinating? Because we've never once had tea the entire time we've been here."

game settings that are located in a real world area and then don't have any influences from that region re: naming of NPCs and locations, foods, religions, etc.

like i'm not asking for a essay on the history of X place for a setting but at least try to make it feel like your gameworld belongs in the area rather than just making up stuff. do a little research.

now in the right place

(Anonymous) 2016-11-02 03:28 pm (UTC)(link)
okay I get that people not tagging into your toplevels can be disheartening, I really do! but this one person keeps complaining pretty consistently about not having enough for ac because people don't tag their stuff, and yet I almost never see them tag out themselves unless it's to previously established CR.

why not tag other people's stuff and make MORE cr that might actually tag into your toplevels? why hinge everything on other people reaching out when you almost never do?

(Anonymous) 2016-11-02 03:33 pm (UTC)(link)
i have no sympathy for these people. if you can't be bothered to tag out and get cr like everyone else, don't expect me to hand it to you on a silver platter.

(Anonymous) 2016-11-03 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
probably 80% of the cr i have has come as a result of tagging out. in fact, i almost never top-level now because i've made so much cr by tagging around that i tend to get swamped when i do top-level stuff.

So I'm feeling more than a little butthurt here but it really, really bothers me when people idle out of a game they were previously in, in favour of the new shiny game that a mutual friend is apping into as well.

At least... if you're thinking of dropping, at least say something to your cast-mates... -_-

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

(Anonymous) 2016-11-06 09:32 am (UTC)(link)
Not wanting a castmate but there's nothing to do about it. I'm not that much of an asshole and I don't want to ruin their fun, but the character is irritating and this person is like a complete stan for them.

You already have the maximum number of characters allowed in the game. Why are you apping another one?

when you have to hope among hope that no one reminds your nonentity castmates about ac or checkin this time. theyd never make a comment or thread count. the mods would be very lax if they talked to them about it though.

ive been off rhythm with my character trying to tiptoe around a cast that doesnt exist anymore for ages. no more. ive lost a lot of respect for them and a lot of motivation.

whys it so hard to drop instead of turning into a stone in someones rp pocket.

It drives me up the wall when people use no common sense in what prompt they reply to or how they reply to it.

An example: I put up a post with three prompts. One of them involves my character asking others to help them carry something. And some chucklefuck playing a character who's on crutches picks THAT prompt to respond to, treating my character like a moron because lol omg why would you ask someone on crutches to help carry your bags wow?!

They obviously wouldn't. Why are you pulling this shit on me? I shouldn't have to write "btw my character only approaches yours for this if any reasonable human being would do so" into every single prompt I write. It should be assumed that my character is not that fucking stupid and if you want to play with me you should pick an option that makes sense as an interaction and doesn't leave me scrambling because suddenly my character is OOC for having made a completely inappropriate request of someone?!

And yes I know there are solutions to this and it's not a huge deal, it's just this happens to me frequently enough that it's become a thing that pisses me off. Especially when I run into players who seem to pick the least appropriate prompt on PURPOSE just to have an excuse to make my character look like an asshole or idiot. I don't mind if it's a mistake my character would reasonably make that makes them look shitty. I'm all for misunderstandings. But when it's something as obvious as my example up there, ffs use some common sense in the interaction. My character's not going to walk up to fucking R2-D2 and ask him to consider donating blood.

When you make it clear to someone that you want to actually get to work on this event thread, and they're going "yeah yeah yeah I'm not a flake!" the whole conversation

And you're still sitting around waiting for them to do... anything.

It's not helping my patience that they're the one who inserted themselves into this plot and I went out of my way to make it work for them.
