Least liked players / Party dynamics

No.91894240 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Thread title.
This might be a little harsh, but (as a female player) I always feel that the self-described 'sensitive, emphatic' type of player / PC just isn't very interesting to me. Those kind of characters tend to be passive, and the way they orbit and hope something works out - Instead of just bluntly stating what they want - feels unbearably tedious.

Those kind of PCs are usually warning signs, because they show that the player is self-inserting pretty hard. That means he's going to take rejection badly. I've personally always preferred the more confident guy who makes a pass, then takes it good-naturedly if I say no.
Then again, I generally make sure my character hooks up with an NPC as soon as possible. A lot of PCs I've played with are awful and sweaty, and I don't want to give anyone the 'trophy' of an in-game romance. Hence, it's NPCs.
With NPCs and constructs, I can highlight that my PC is a sexual entity without being eligible to any of my party members. I mean, I like sex, but I don't want to sleep with the universally lame PCs. And yes, I universally play spellcasters.

Think of it as a movie, where the hero has an 'ex-wife' or a sexy girlfriend to show that he's having sex. This is the female equivalent, it takes the guy out of the equation. It helps that a lot of players are intimidated by this, so they don't get ideas.

Beastwomen

No.91830022 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Would the Beastmen race from Warhammer Fantasy and Age of Sigmar be more popular if they were instead a Beastwomen race where the purpose of their raids is forcing human and elven males to breed with them?

> According to Elmore, Margaret Weis's reaction to Caldwell's first drawing was very negative; Weis said Goldmoon looked like "a whore". Elmore subsequently attempted to allay Weis's concerns, and drew the character for a book cover to appear less "sexy", adding leather pants. He and Parkinson collaborated on Goldmoon illustrations for a long time afterwards. Weis reportedly appreciated Parkinson's attempt to incorporate Weis's vision of Goldmoon as "Native American with a Celtic touch". Both Weis and Tracy Hickman continued to consult about the artwork, but Weis was always the one more invested in a particular vision.

What the hell was Margaret Weis problem? Also lol at being invested in a "vision" for the dragonlance books, the most low-rent generic fantasy literature ever.

Why the fuck was this TSR's best-selling D&D series in the 80s?
