  • Mood:
So after last night it became way too clear....

Our DM wants to win on both sides...the DM side and the PC side

He has made a half-orc goon (barb-fighter) who uses a greatsword. He said he "wants to have a voice in the game" ....but he's the fucking DM!!! Anyway, all the encounters we go through which seem to be easy turn out to be really hard and then we manage to get through because of help from his goon. So after "winning" as a DM he "wins" as a player. It annoys the other players, I've been developing a deafness to his references to how much damage his character does. We don't know what he's doing and don't want/need to know the damage he does.

Oh....whenever he kills something he makes noises to show what he's done and usually tosses the miniatures off the map, but when the paladin a buddy is playing crits something and does 45 damage the DM simply says "ok he's dead" or something much calmer.

I've mentioned that he is forgetting things on both sides because he's dm'ing and playing...but he just dismisses that. His half-orc does not hate orcs but he spent a game and a half thinking that he did...only later did he read his character sheet and realize it. Then last night he missed a bunch of items that the NPCs would have had on them and since they never had them in the fight he decided that they were "misplaced or stolen" I think the part that annoys the other players (and myself) is that he stops and has to read the adventure (Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil...or whatever the correct title is named) but he can go on how he's been looking over feats and shit for his goon.


Ugh...ranting too much...must go out and do something.
