I recently was fooling around and found this community.
I just wanted to pop in and say hi.
Hmmm what to talk about...
Well, I like to play thieves, but uh I suck at that. >_<
My longest lasting character was a cleric, which was a character I had the DM roll up for me because I thought I was going to be late. But it was cool any ways I made her a pretty cool character for myself.
I like to play more of a comic relief charcter, but not overly ridiculous. That cleric ended up being an excelent example of that. She was overly obsessed with cookies. So instead of create food and water it was create cookies and milk. But she could kick some major butt too, that character was the second longest living one out of the group of 10 people playing. Only a fighter lasted longer then my cleric.
I really haven't had any bad DM experiences, but I have an assload of bad player experiences. Some of the people I have played with were uh to say not playing with a full deck of cards.
The one guy played great, but he was really into reading all the D&D books and stuff and would argue the most pointless crap with our DM. I don't care if he read the book the adventure we are playing is on. Once it is the DM's game the DM can change whatever he likes.
We had someone who was really just dumb. I cannot put it any differently then that. He was like that all the time not just in D&D. No one really wanted to play with him but he was one of the DM's room mates cousion so we couldn't get rid of him. He went though so many characters I can't kid you. And it wasn't like the DM would give him chances to live he got lots but he would still die. Such as the time he was a Paladin in full armour. He had a strige stuck in his back so he decided to just into the raging water to get it off. >_<
And last but not least the guy who makes character not for play but for all stats. Don't get me wrong I love good stats but when you are a Half Celestial Paladin and the rest of your party are normal folk things begin to suck.
I have to say though I have been lucky and blessed with good DMs.
