When interesting games are modded by the worst people.

You know I agree with the anon a while back that you really should blame dwrp as a whole for this than someone for coming up with a game idea. It speaks to how homogeneous dwrp games are that people act like coming up with interesting game premises is something that's limited.

i'd rather have this than someone who is a close canonmate but is barely around/scrapes by on ac

This. If their tags are boring they can be gently groomed into improvement. Activity, sadly, cannot be groomed.

Not everyone can be "groomed" into getting better, though. In my experience, people who write boring tags don't actually get better. I've had more luck with asking canonmates to be more active.

I'd rather have a canonmate who writes good but is rarely around, over a canonmate who boomerangs but their writing is boring. At least with the first one, I'm getting a tag I like reading and responding to once in a while. With the second, I'm not getting any tags I like responding to, I'm just getting what boils down to busywork.

This assumes that the situation doesn't leave you having to handwave tons of stuff. If you do, then yeah give me the boomeranger.

as someone who's experienced both, it depends on how slow and how bad we're talking here

slow, like maybe one tag a week, is awful but manageable if the castmate isn't super close.

but characters who are dull and don't seem to grow or develop in the setting in any way and play their game threads like a string of loosely related meme threads are even worse. at least the slow castmate can handwave stuff that makes them easy to work around, but having to icly deal with a castmate who never reacts appropriately to the setting/thread can be annoying as hell.

that being said, the easiest way to deal with a dull castmate is to only thread with them when really dynamic shit is going on. just tell them up front you don't really like small talk threads, and save them for big event stuff. at least them you'll have an outside force to react to.

or when their mun is an asshole

think that's worse tbh

when you're in a game at character cap and people skate by doing nothing for months with hiatus - strike - ac free month - bare minimum - repeat.

go squat in a game where you're not preventing someone who might actually play from getting in.

especially when they have constantly expressed how disinterested they are in the game. THEN WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE.

(Anonymous) 2016-12-09 12:28 am (UTC)(link)
Even worse when they're in another game and they're super active in that one. I get having a secondary game you're only casually in but a small capped game is not the place to do that

people making their characters unrealistically infantile and clueless about sex

in sex games

Depends on what you're calling unrealistic; nothing wrong with a character being a virgin or having no sexual experience pre-game. The ones who are all WHAT IS THIS STRANGE FEELING, I HAVE NEVER BEEN TURNED ON BEFORE, though, uh. Does start to look like a fetish.

i have a character in his mid twenties that i could feasibly play as a virgin. if i did take that route, though, you bet that he'd still be able to tell what a boner is

oh, yeah, i have no issue with that. what i mean is characters who act like they don't know what a penis/vagina is even conceptually.

this reminded me of a time i played a character that this was canon for. they came from a very restrictive and repressed religious community in a time when women's sexuality was an unspoken issue.

she became so thirsty for it though. wanted to learn everything about sex as much as she could and was very into experimenting and using it as a way to connect with people.

that was a fun.
