wyltoknow: People deciding their chaotic neutral character wants to go on a rampage against their allies in the middle of a big boss fight. WTF thanks Steve, thanks for ruining an entire set-up and killing off all the characters we had JUST created. That group didn't wanna come over to our house anymore after that. I wish I could find a good D&D crowd.

Ah...the chaotic neutral guy...i always played the Paladin type so i was often the counterpoint of Mr. Freewill.

In the middle of looting some cults tower before we headed down to the demons in the basement (they were busy with a ritual) our chaotic neutral thief sleight of hand pocketed a necklace of fireballs. We head downstairs, hear chanting on the other side of a door and get ready to bust some heads.

We kick open the door, our rogue rolls a 20 and goes first! He throws the amulet and....a natural 1...the chain catches his fingers as he throws it and it sails straight down into the stone below...letting out about 50 fireballs into the room. The party, the monsters, everyone was instantly incinerated. TPK - GAME.

There was a moment of silence...then we laughed our asses off, went outside and burned our character sheers ceremonially.

When you and most of your friends are lawyers, it's kind of hard to avoid "rules lawyering" during games.

JasonOfOrillia: Good list. I would add:
9. Using dice as caltrops.


My Dad has a few if the original box set D4s - the ones with the non rounded tops. Earned myself 3 stiches on those sumbiatches.

Number 10: the Mary Sue effect. The DM's girlfriend joins the group. She has not a clue as to any facet of the game, and the the DM gives her 99% of all swag, luck, and attention.

I had this player once that couldn't be arsed to come up with even the minimal backstory or any details about his character. I tried to work with him to develop some semblance of a three dimensional character, but it was pretty obvious he didn't give a crap and just wanted to do nothing more than be a healbot. Thank goodness he left on his own.
