I've watched it and I'm pretty sure EVERYONE was in the wrong here. So much, that I'm certain that this was artifically fabricated to create drama and thus 'publicity' for this show

Yes, Marisha was absolutely retarded for not turning herself into a bird and flying to save her life. But I can actually see what she was going for - an 'heroic' pocahontas dive: it isn't too far-fetched in a high-flying fantasy game (which CR is). She probably imagined cliffs like the ones on Dover (which are 300' tall, and I could honestly see a low-power S&S hero diving off one into the waters, let alone a D&D 5e super-hero), with water underneath.
>MARISHA: Am I on the cliff?
>MATT: You’re on top of the cliff, yeah.
>MARISHA: Is she down?
>MATT: Yeah.
>LAURA: I can come– Oh. Are you really?
>MARISHA: Can I do it?
>LAURA: That’s a really high drop!
>MARISHA: Can I do the Pocahontas swan dive?
>MATT: Okay, make an athletics check.
Mercer is certainly being quite obtuse, and I suspect it's on purpose. He doesn't ask for clarification on what is obviously a dumb suicidal action.
>MATT: Okay. You get a few feet past the cliff edge. Not a majestic jump and the cliff is not completely sheer; it does slightly angle outwards. So you gently leap off, and as you’re falling you can see you probably have, I’d say about 300 feet or so before you’re going to hit rock.
>MARISHA: I’m going to hit rock?

Well that is dumb
>The character would certainly see that to be a fatal drop on to rocks and clearly the player isn't understanding the danger
I'd tend to allow a certain amount of backouts there, or even ask the player to describe their plan roughly. I'd assume the same as you; the player isn't picturing this right.
He presumably thought that she was going to shapeshift into a bird or some other flying animal.

Then she turned into a goldfish and Travis couldn't stop laughing. Even when Ashley told him he was being mean, he just said it was too funny, and she agreed.
>Nobody is happy seeing a high level character die in such a retarded manner.
Everybody else laughing their asses off at it around the table seemed to be fine with it.
It was just staged bullshit, you nailed it OP.

How does a normal person respond when they realise they've been having a tea party with an interdimensional planet busting cosmic entity?
>jumper picked up Sheba in Oasis while also fighting god
>jumper gets to Chaldea and sees Romani
Normal people haven't had tea parties in over a century.
This weird sense of detached, mostly-academic panic as they realize the reason they're having such a calm response is because I'm using mind-affecting abilities to keep them calm. They can't actually freak out at how I'm influencing their thoughts, but they sure want to.
He'd be happy for her, they are legitimately friends at the least.

I mean I get the furries. But no elves? Dwarves?

>Favored by God
>Gets constantly punted from your homelands for not following vague orders and persecuted everywhere just for an extra fuck you

I'd rather be damned to be honest
I think an "exotic" PC in mask would come down to the fluff, since most character traits are in the rp. Incidentally, I think Masks is great for this, because it identifies That Guy right away. That Guy will either make some super-edgy anime character or a Mary-Sue self-insert.
I GM historical fantasy, so elves and dwarves will never even be an option unless we decide we're doing a Germanic campaign. Exotic races appropriate to the mythos we're in can be played, but other than tweaking B/X elves and dwarves into nymphs and satyrs, they only get "unlocked" as homebrew after the initially humans-only party meets and negotiates with them.
Exotic races I make setting specific, if the player can convince me to let them run them out of their home I might let them but I will have people react to them being an oddball, though I won't unilaterally bar them for being a filthy *insert race here*

Have you tried being awesome?
My uncle was born a woman before Tumblr or whatever made it trendy, struggled with crippling kidney failure his entire short life, was only attracted to heterosexual women, and still was loved by everyone and had multiple long term relationships with attractive heterosexual women.
By being awesome.

Perhaps the next time you find yourself acting like a sorry sad sack feeling unlovable you could try acting awesome instead.
Working at that has got to help more than posting on 4chan.

Anyone else find making a character is a lot more fun than actually playing games?

What games have the most fun character creation?
I've mostly heard of this as a 3.PF phenomenon, where the byzantine chargen with content from all over the place creates a weird kind of minigame of its own.
>Anyone else find making a character is a lot more fun than actually playing games?

I felt that when I actively despised roleplaying as effeminate and saw my only goal in the game as 'victory'. When I started embracing it more, my fun actually playing the games exceeded that of writing characters.
No because I play systems where character creation isn’t so convoluted that the only reason I use the system is the sunk cost fallacy.
Besides unlike you autist anons on this board I actually play the games ya’ll shit on.
yeah sure

so we all know that the chaos gods play a big part in the universe of warhammer 40k and that their taint can be found all over the milky way galaxy,but i ve been thinking
since there are more galaxies does that mean that there are multiple pantheons of chaos gods for each there is?
does the chaos gods influence extend outside the galaxy into others?
also,once the tyranids fully arrive,will they even stand a chance against the hive mind?

No, you don't taker anything. You ignored all the lore and provided something that's irrelevant. Slaanesh was born in the Fall but because of the nature of the Warp he had always existed in the Warp and even sent his armies to time before the War in Heaven.
It's not so much that he always existed, but that he retroactively shoved itself in the past, changing it in subtle ways but keeping the timeline awkwardly consistent.

In Age of Sigmar there is a very good example of time travel in Ushkar Mir. He is a khornate lore, that after the devastation of his homeland was given the option of turning during the Age of Chaos. Long after during the Age of Sigmar he is one of the potential recruits for Archaon's Varanguard and must pass a trial for each god. The trial of Tzeentch sends him back into the past to confront his past self during the last battle to protect. His past self upon seeing what has become of himself, decides that he will never turn and attacks his future self and promptly gets killed. Then his past self body disappears in a flash of lighting, obviously rescued by Sigmar to become one of the Stormcast Eternal and then Tzeentch expels him back into the future. To say he became bewildered was to say the least.
The warp is pure time fuckery, debating about chronology or even common sense in this demonic mess is useless.
Prove it.

The very worst aspect of geek culture is the need to be patronizing for literally no reason
Gatekeeping is necessary to keep retards like you from polluting the hobby.
My words were "I assume we're using Xanathar's?" in a discussion on character creation. I may have misspoken with my original post.

even if someone is ageless it is doubful that, unless you take extreme isolationist measures, you would live past a couple of centuries, at least the very average life span in an immortal society would be measured in centuries or millenia, not millions of years. all kinds of things happen, inluding tissue damage from radiation building up etc until you got cancer.

There's going to be a weird transitionary period where you still WILL be meatbags.

If that period lasts long enough for the first immortals to start going soft but gain control of a societal controlling majority (lets say, 50 years, which is enough time for everyone not immortal of political importance to die off), you won't get the neon you're hoping for, just stagnation.

I have only been a player in my first game and have never had this kind of problem as a GM. Some of the misinterpretations this dude makes from the rules make me think that he didn't read them at all.

The last dispute we had over rules was him claiming spells cast as a Standard Action were delayed until the casters next turn. This gives everyone acting after him that round a chance to react to the casting and provoke attacks of opportunity(?). I don't want to just call this guy a liar and shit on his game but there is no way he has any experience as a GM or player if that's how he thinks that works. I am getting pretty concerned about the long shot of this campaign if the guy running it has IRL lied his ass off to us from the getgo.

What do /tg/? Should I just poison him?

Talk to him out of the game and politely explain how he's fucking all his shit up
You need to either talk to other members of the group or the DM yourself if you want any chance of this being fixed (or a graceful way out).

It really depends on how bad the DM is at taking criticism. Good luck.
Man PF sounds like a nightmare.
If he won't step down you would be well within your rights to invite him fishing and have a tragic boating accident.

>This is an actual social situation
Then the bigger concern isn't playing RPG's with this guy, it's encouraging him to learn how to fucking read.

Being illiterate is a huge fucking deal my dude, you basically cannot operate in modern society on any meaningful level. And if you live in a country where illiteracy is actually common, then I'm gonna assume it's some third world shithole where getting killed by wildlife is a possibility outside of the game, as well.
