    Exclamation DM horror stories (warning! rage inducing)

    So I went to our play group this week, like I have for the past 4 weeks (I go each Thursday), hoping to finally be able to play my character in our level 6 campaign (my character still hasn't been introduced). I flat out told my dm that I was starting to get annoyed that my character wasn't in yet and he said it was the other players' fault because they were going too slow. (Half the time the dm himself derails the game) Well, there was a player who didn't show up so I played his character this time (It was the most unoptimized tier 6 character I had ever seen, but that's for a different time).

    I started walking down a hallway that went a different direction from the group (I assumed they wouold follow since they were finished with an encounter). I first cast Detect snares and pits. Nothing. Then I cast and continued to concentrate on a detect magic spell. Still nothing. I started to sprint down the hallway. I continued this action for the next 10 minutes, in game time.

    Well, the group decided to attack some kind of dragonlings while on their way towards me. The rogue eventually escaped. The dm told him to use his sentient rope (who the party nicknamed "Bungie") to take me back. (Did I tell you that I had to wait 3 hours for the fight to finish?) Well, apparently Bungie could move pretty damn fast because he caught up to me in ONE ROUND. He then auto succeeded on a grapple check and pulled me back 30ft the next round. I asked why I didn't notice Bungie as I had detect magic on and I should be able to sense magic auras within 60ft. He said it was because Bungie's aura was "divine magic" and not "arcane magic".

    "Why don't I get a grapple check?"

    "Bungie automatically beats you" (He skips my next turn)

    "Whoah wait! What about escape artist check?"

    "There's no way you'd win anyways, but fine"

    (I roll a 20)

    The session ends with me being auto grappled into submission the very next round. Keep in mind this pretty much reversed all I had done in the entire 3 hour play-session.

    As you might guess I was pretty pissed so I told him.

    "You know, you pretty much negated all I've done this session. I feel like you're reversing all I've done these past three hours just to smite-spite me." (people laugh at me saying "smite" instead of spite)

    he says, and I quote,

    "What did you have some daddy issues as a kid or something?"

    another guy says

    "Yeah, if he wanted to spite you he just wouldn't have let you play at all."
    (My thought here was, wasn't that exactly what he was doing the past four weeks?)

    So I gave the character sheets I was using back to the dm and left.

    Now tell me playground what should I have done? Was I being too arrogant trying to get too far from the party? Should I have just kept my mouth shut when he was houseruling Bungie? I don't know and honestly I'm much too pissed to care. I've wasted a total 15 hours of my life just watching other people play d&d while I do nothing. I had been wanting to play since September 26th and this was just the last straw. I don't think I'm ever playing with that dm again.

    If you want to see the statistics for Bungie look in the spoiler,


    Spoiler
    Show
    Bungie
    Immune to anything requiring any save.
    Moves NI speed per round.
    Auto succeeds on any grapple or attack roll.
    Cannot be detected through detection spells. (Apparently a detect divine magic spell doesn't exist. Imagine that)
    Level 6 with a +11 LA.
    Whenever destroyed, the closest rope becomes sentient with the same statistics. It then knows exactly where the rogue is and follows him until he catches up.


    Back to the thread title
    I decided to dedicate this thread to dm stories similar or worse than this one. If you have a dm nightmare post it and we'll all rage together. (And yes I know about that one where the guy got stabbed (in real life), no need to link it)

    Legendxp,

    If you are joining a group and you have to wait more than one session, don't. Most often if the DM is looking for more players they will figure out a way to include you pretty quickly.

    If the DM can't include you quickly, they should talk to you about it and make sure you don't sit around bored for a session. I can see them having you sit in on ONE session to see if its a game you like, but only if they've discussed it with you ahead of time.

    Um, yeah... normally I would say you're throwing a hissy fit because you're only complaining and not really asking for advice, however I would say that DM is bad.

    If you have a new player it's super easy to incorporate them, like you walk into a room and you see a guy, he seems to be looking for the same thing you are, and seems like a nice guy. Tell the party to talk it over and go get a beer or two.

    Bungie is a DM fiat, and that's fine, they have rights to do all sorts of stuff. At least it wasn't the map from Dora the Explorer who could tell you how to get anywhere but sang while doing it, and with an annoying voice.

    Overall, I'd say that DM was just bad.

    As far as DM horror stories, I'll share one from a while ago.
    Spoiler
    Show

    I should have known this was going to be bad because the DM said 'I want to finish the quest of one of my characters that never got finished'. A DMPC is almost always the wrong issue.

    We are given stats for our characters by the DM, and I'm playing a Dwarven Fighter/Warblade tank so my Charisma is 4 which is the equivalent of a 'Dire Rat' but all other stats are good. So I make his a veteran fighter and foul mouthed ******* and he's full tank with like 49 AC at level 7 but does 1d8+3 damage, not much of anything important.

    Our party is non-descript we have a psionic person with only social skills, etc.
    A rogue who uses a crossbow, and the DMPC a dwarven cleric who is out for revenge on her father the necromancer.

    Anyways it was a giant 'look how cool my last PC was' campaign where we ended up befriending a group of Kobolds (because my character helped one out). So literally other than my guy being a giant ass to everyone and interrupting people no one did anything, except the DMPC who did everything else.

    The DM stops the 'doing nothing' for two weeks and every session wants to talk about how D&D is totally screwed up be because they don't really equate for helmets. After wasting a couple sessions telling him that helmets are part of some armor, but its D&D logic doesn't apply, etc. I left.

    Well... assuming you aren't lying.

    In all my 25 years of DMing I have never screwed with another human being the way he screwed with you. What you have here is an egomaniac with his little kingdom of suck ups. If you have other options, take them. Game with anyone else over this guy.

    "Bungie"? Seriously? Holy Hell. I would rather have someone commit surgery on my testicles with rusty dental tools that were on fire then ever create a self aware magic ANYTHING called BUNGIE. I want to take away his DM card. I bet he even chuckles to himself when he says "Bungie" out loud. It's people like him that make me wish for a zombopocolypse.

That being said...if your relation of what they said is accurate these don't sound like they are your friends given their responses. Maybe I'm just seeing a bad side of them, but..why are you playing with them?

    The whole point of being a DM is to make a story that everyone enjoys and is challenged by. If a player sits around and does nothing for a whole session (let alone more than one session), then the DM has no excuse for not diverging from the main scene with the others to set you up. This doesn't require huge creativity, and can often be done with a minimum of the choo choo train.

    Heck, I just ran a session for four players in Exalted last weekend in which none of them started out knowing each other, they were free to mainly do whatever, and several of the characters weren't even aware of the general thrust of the plot (or didn't particularly care starting out), and in which I didn't know most of the rules (role play heavy session ). By the end, everyone had more or less hired onto the main plot, we'd all gotten a nice primer on how the rules generally worked, and I shuffled from player to player often enough that none of them had to wait more than a half-hour (out of a six hour session) to do something.

    It's not rocket science to let people that want to play play. But it is pretty stupid to irritate and alienate the people that keep the DM in business (the players).

    That DM sounds like a ****. His argument of arcane vs. divine magic is crap - the spell detects magic of any kind. Oddly enough he did miss the obvious which is that detect magic only works on a cone in front of you, if the rope came up from behind you wouldn't detect it.

    It's one thing if a DM does something to annoy you. But if you call them out on it and they act like even more of a ****, just walk away. You aren't going to be having fun playing with them so it's just not worth the effort of arguing.

    I feel for you man but ive only had a few bad dnd moments and after session one i quit. First was a guy who was railroading us and dm fiating every clever trick i did (i killed one guy in an unconvential way and was basically told off for kill stealing) and the second one is the only real one that got me pissed off


    Were on the postive energy plane, somehow theres like 30 devils, and long story short we fight them. They have 6 hell cats, 20 succubis, 4 of the CR 16 Devils (I cant recall the name) and a pit fiend. Well, my group is weak and im the big guy in the group. Were all level 10, but i built without giving an inch for what i wanted to do. To condence the battle, the 8 other party members beat on the hell cats and succubis why'll i crushed the CR 16 guys. Then the pit fiend comes. Well again my group is weak as heck and i know the fiend may well beat me if the dice go his way. The weakest built dwarf fighter i have ever seen decides to charge it, and i know hes about to die. So the group charges and the fiend throws maxamized quickened fireball around itself then takes down the group. The DM thinks im going down. I didnt. I beat the fiend bad, and the group was able to live because the ranger with diehard healed everyone. Seems like a good little tail right? Well the whole time im kicking this guys ass the DM is getting mad. Really mad. When i break the fiends neck he literally slams his book down and goes out for a smoke. Well its late, i have to work the next day, i go home. Come to find out, the DM sat there and trash talked me for hours about how i was broken and rruining the game, and talked the party into the same thought line, instead of admitting he threw us against way to much and i had to go balls to the wall to save our back sides. Thats the one session that bugged me, and its because DnD basically turned my friends into a mob who disliked me and talked behind my back. Thats my horror story

    @OP: My god. I've only heard one worse horror story and thats the SUE Files DM.
    Due to mental stuff in my head I find it hard to understand normal human behaviour.
    If I do something wrong PM me what is wrong. And do not be subtle, I need a kick in the pants sometimes to realize Im a jerk.

    Bail from the game. Hell if you're in the Maryland area I'll offer to run something for you just to give you an excuse to bail from the game. No one should be forced to be a spectator for other people. Period.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    I'm echoing what most of the other people have said... you should have bailed after the first session of no introduction. It sounds like not the most 'serious' game... so he should have been able to introduce your character easily. Hell, a simple "Your character is also wandering in this dungeon" would have sufficed.

    -.-

    Do not go back to this group. It would be, put simply, a major mistake.

    We were playing 2nd edition adnd and somehow a huge in party fight started between the dm's npcs, whom were hischaracters when he played and the players. Wanting the fighting to cease, I cast a spell called Calm Chaos. there was no save or sr to the spell, simply a charisma check. the check was rolled and approved by the dm and he even stated, ok it works, now what are the effects?

    I read the spell discription saying than anyone within range would stop and actions and listen intently on what the caster spoke untill the end of the spells duration. The dm asked to see the book and so i showed it to him and even opened the book to the page the spell was listed.

    He read the spell for himself and saw it was stated as I had said. He huffed and shook his head and said in that case the spell doent work because he didnt have access to that book. Then he grinned in a matter of factly way. I asked him if he were serious and he said yes.

    I then told him all my wizards spells were taken from that book and witjout blinking an eye, he said then i guess you should roll up a new character at level 1 (and the party was level 7 or 8) and be introduced to the party, or pack up my books and he would call me when that campaign had ended.

    I packed up and never returned.

    Hmmm what are your working fee's/what did you spend to get to the place?

    Fee them, if they aren't friends, for your expenses of WASTING YOUR GOD DAMN TIME.

    I sadly or luckily have no real horror stories as the most annoying this was the DSA campaign I was in where my character was screwed over, laughed at for in character things and smack talked.

    Or the time we tried us in an Orc/Goblins campaign where I played a CN Dumb as **** Orc and proceeded to roll nothing lower than a 15 the whole evening and irritating the dm resulting in the death of another player.

    Who came up with the idea that monks could cross-class UMD? And moreso, what would it achieve? just out of curiosity.

    My understanding is that it originated in this thread. It's pretty classic, as such things go.

    Shouldn't a DM at least mention beforehand which sources are allowed and which are not? And secondly, this basically means your wizard reached level 7 or 8 without ever casting any spells... That's either the most parasitic-to-the-rest-of-the-team wizard, or the most bad-ass wizard i've ever heard of.

    I think the idea is that he's been casting spells from that book the whole time, but when the DM decided he didn't like a single spell from the book, he changed his mind and banned the whole think, aka the wizard's entire arsenal
    63% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 56% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature. If you're one of the 84% of people that realize statistics are often made up, and that those numbers don't add up to 100%, post this in your signature and change all the percentages

    My players all started on separate ends of the continent from each other.

    I'm desperate for d&d play. There is nobody even close to where I live that likes to play d&d. Honestly, the people weren't even that bad until tonight. I just think they didn't like me calling the dm out.

    Actually... You're right. I let my anger get the best of me while I was typing my post. People have to remember that there are two sides to every story. I REALLY want to know what the dm was thinking though because he was seriously making some big mistakes.

    Yeah, I totally missed that. I don't often play spellcasters and have very few of the spells memorized. I'm also wondering why he didn't call me out on that. >_>

    Yeah, I KNOW. I mean come on, who DOESN'T give out custom relics to everybody?

    You can play on Skype over the interwebs!
    Then you will know the rules, and the rules will set you free.

    or pbp or ask in a FLGS or in a regional forum or or or.

    My Old group I met with via meeting new people and "befriending" them. The new group we searched in a forum that specialised in these things for Aachen. Albeit there seem to be two other boards albeit one only for LARP and the other for Vampire and all 3 hate each other...
